Faldo Wins for the 3rd Time This Season!

Faldo came in from behind, with a rush late(twss).

Seventeen made it to the NPP felt tonight. Really sixteen as Douge2 never made it in. But his chips did.

No cards early for Faldo, but cards at the right time to stay alive. Other players chopped down the big trees (stacks) and Faldo caught cards late to vacuum up the chips.

That is all there was to it. A run of cards late in the tourney. Just what you want.

We did learn that RodCPA joins Boother36, LittleRedElf, K9isadog, Fourbetbluff, ThePunk75, Nahanni74, T3chlady, 95corolla and a few others as have cashed large in the tourney circuit.

But with two WSOP cashes – 3rd in 2007 and 30th in 2011 in the Senior events for almost $200K, he probably is the highest cashing player at NPP.

I asked for some stories and I hope Rod will send them along.

On to the action:

14 min: Tommydoo’s (17th) two pair loses to RodCPA’s trip.
21 min: KingBing420 (16th) loses a coin flip with (Ad Kd) to RodCPA’s (TT).
27 min: BigDaddyTman (15th) loses to Wingsfancurt’s two pair.
33 min: A rare double kill by T3chlady with (QQ) to take out short-stacked (SS) Tomservo2 (14th) with (A8) and SS Derf-63 (13th) with (55).

40 min: LittleRedElf (12th) goes with his (AK) and a flop of [98K] and run into RodCPA’s (99)!

47 min: A SS 95corolla (11th) is double teamed by Absea98 and the winner with a straight, RodCPA.

48 min: Suetman123 (10th) missed the hand watching the one above at my table.

1st break:
RodCPA 7094
Wingsfancurt 6511
Cigar4John 3621
T3chlady 2966
Mikeniks-Faldo 1529
Absea98 1059
8thmile 1035
K9isadog 820

64 min: K9isadog (9th) loses to T3chlady’s flush.
72 min: 8thmile (8th) Phone call – missed it.
83 min: Douge2 (7th) blinds out.
100 min: A SS Absea98 (6th) has to go with (A6) but T3chlady has (JJ).

2nd break:
Wingsfancurt 9480
RodCPA 8765
Mikeniks-Faldo 2859
Cigar4John 2281
T3chlady 2115

This group settles in and goes to war.

133 min: A SS T3chlady (5th) has to go with (Kd 6d) but RodCPA has (AJ).
153 min: A now SS RodCPA (4th) saw is big stack get broken down by chase downs and then sees his (Jh 8h) pair on the flop, only to see Wingsfancurt with (A5) hit his [A] on the river. Sometimes it is just not in the cards.

165 min: A SS Cigar4John (3rd) sees his (TT) get double teamed by Wingsfancurt and Mikeniks-Faldo with (KJ) and a flopped [J]..

Heads up Wingsfancurt 16500 Mikeniks-Faldo 9000

Mikeniks-Faldo 19155
Wingsfancurt 6345

184 min: A SS Wingsfancurt (2nd) has his pair of fours beaten by Mikeniks-Faldo’s trip Aces.
