Pre01 Wins His 1st NPP Tournament!

It floored Faldo too, young lady!

Fantastic job by Pre01, who moves into 2nd place overall, and can see ThePunk75 in the horizon at least. Most importantly - Pre01 is on the Walk of Fame now!!!!!

He had to dodge not only the talent laden field that is NPP Poker, but he dodged the River Monster that seemed to swallow stacks whole. Lots of river beats tonight.

FYI on the 1st quarter action: ThePunk75 has a very comfortable lead, but with 6 tournaments played and still 6 left, and – on average – 5 points awarded for a win, the lead is not safe. Two more wins by anyone, and they are right back in it. Even a new player!

In theory, eleven players could take the lead with two wins.

Faldo will keep an eye on the points and if it ThePunk75 does continue to pull away, the Tournament Committee will meet, and after the “poles” on the stage close, we will vote on what to do.

Like Democrats, we vote even after the polls close. Of course Democrats vote even more before they open - especially the dead ones.

The TC will try and save some tourneys to add to the next quarter, so every round counts. But it is too early to even have that meeting yet. I think the majority agrees.

On to the action:

12 min: Cpadanj (16th) pair of kings runs into Tommydoo’s trip fours. This starts a pattern.

13 min: Lump2 (15th) runs into Tommydoo’s trip jacks.
17 min: T3chlady (14th) trip tens runs into Tommydoo’s flush on the river. See what I mean?

25 min: A short-stacked (SS) K9isadog (13th) sees his pair get out-kicked by Eyekall.
34 min: Eyekall (12th) sees his (KK) lose to Suetman123’s (As Js) with an [A] on the flop.

40 min: A SS KingBing420 (11th) sees her pair of queens get run down by Tommydoo’s with a flush on the river.

43 min: Tomservo2 (10th). I did not see it, watching an all in survivor on my table.
50 min: Derf-63’s (9th) (TT) runs into 95corolla’s (AA)
60 min: The break monster let Faldo live!!!! My (KK) holds on against 8thmile’s (QQ).
Don’t laugh. Two-outters hit at the break WAY too often.

1st break:
Tommydoo 3905
ThePunk75 3637
Suetman123 3552
Mikeniks-Faldo 3400
8thmile 3100
Absea98 2596
95corolla 2365
Pre01 1445

72 min: A SS Tommydoo (8th) has a pair of threes, but 8thmile hits his flush.
78 min: Absea98 (7th) has trips but runs into Mikeniks-Faldo’s full house.
86 min: A SS ThePunk75 (6th) tries with (AT) but 8thmile has (AK).
98 min: A SS 95corolla (5th) has to go with (A8), but Suetman123 with (A2) hits the baby straight.

101 min: A SS Suetman123 (4th) has to try with (A6) but Mikeniks-Faldo has (AJ). Now we settle in for a battle.

2nd break:
Mikeniks-Faldo 14578
Pre01 6120
8thmile 3302

Faldo had his hands but either got no action or lost as the favorite for the next half hour. Then the deck totally shut down on Faldo. Oh, well. That’s poker.

I was primarily feeding 8thmile, and he was feeding Pre01 – who did not return the chips to Faldo. What’s up with that?

150 min: A SS 8thmile (3rd) has to goes with a pair of deuces on the flop, but Pre01 has (KT) and hits a [K] on the river.

Heads up: Mikeniks-Faldo 7000 - Pre01 17000

155 min: A SS Mikeniks-Faldo (2nd) has to go with (8s 7s) and is called by Pre01 with (AT). There is an [8] on the flop, but so is an [A].

Congratulations to Pre01 on his 1st NPP win!
