Lump2 Wins His 1st NPP Tourney and Takes Over the League Lead
Ilary Blasi was so impressed - she fainted - as Lump2 is the 65th player to win an NPP tournament event! Welcome to the Walk of Fame Lump2.
Well it was bound to happen. Lump2 was hanging around the final tables this season and finally closed the deal. He did it mostly by eliminating the competition with NINE knockouts on the night. Impressive.
Turnout was a little lighter than I expected after the nice turnout last week. It did not dampen play any as the tourney ran almost as long as the others.
On to the action:
13 min: K9isadog (15th) hits his flush, but Tommydoo’s is bigger (twss).
18 min: A short-stacked (SS) Absea98 (14th) sees his (TT) lose a coin flip to Lump2’s (AQ) with an [A] on the flop.
21 min: Brucef1040 (13th) sees his pair of queens get out-kicked by Derf-63’s pair of queens.
40 min: Derf-63 (12th) Missed it. Playing a hand on my table.
46 min: 95corolla (11th) Missed it. Playing a hand on my table.
49 min: 8thmile (10th) Missed it. Watching a hand on my table.
50 min: ThePunk75 (9th) Missed it because I had to take a phone call.
Your humble reporter is not having a good night – playing or writing.
66 min: Tommydoo (8th) is out-kicked – Ten to Nine by Bb557.
73 min: A SS KingBing420 (7th) hits a pair of kings on the flop, but Suetman123 hit trips! Ouch!
90 min: A harmless looking flop of [7h 6h 5s] gets three-way all-in action going (twss). A SS Tomsevo2 (6th) tries with (Ad 8d), Bb558 (5th) has to go with (88), and Lump2 has to call with (66) and his trips hang on for the double knockout!
98 min: A SS Suetman123 (4th) tries the flush draw with (Kd 9d) on a flop with two diamonds in it, but cannot run down Lump2’s (KJ). Another “out-kicked” ousting tonight.
110 min: A SS Mikeniks-Faldo (3rd) has to go with (A2) but cannot catch Lump2’s (22).
Heads up: Lump2 11000 - Pre01 11500
2nd break at 115 min: Heads up: Lump2 13500 - Pre01 9000
124 min: A SS Pre-01 (2nd) goes with (AK) on a dry flop of [7Q8] but runs into Lump2’s (T7) and does not improve.
Congratulations to Lump2 on his 1st NPP win!
