K9isadog Wins His 10th NPP Tourney!
And it was as easy for him as playing football with Faldo’s caddie applicants.
K9 is now within striking distance of our fearless leader, ThePunk75!
K9 had to face down LittleRedElf and Faldo when it got down to 3-handed. He handled it easily.
Attendance was at the same time great – 16 players …..but puzzling.
While happy to see Bblbtt, Douge2, and Theedouble*d return to the NPP felt, it was disappointing to be missing Suetman123, Tomservo2, Tommydoo and Eyekall.
Oh well. You can’t always make every round. But a 20 player tourney was within reach.
On to the action:
2 min: Cpadanj (16th) has two pair and runs into Pre01’s trip Kings.
29 min: A short-stacked (SS) Absea98 (15th) has to go with (A9) and Theedouble*d has (65) and hits a [5 and 6] on the board.
31 min: A SS Douge2 (14th) goes with (AQ), but Mikeniks-Faldo has (KK).
35 min: A short-stacked (SS) ThePunk75 (13th) sees his (KT) get out-pipped by K9isadog’s (KJ).
36 min: A SS Bblbtt (12th) loses to LittleRedElf’s (AK).
40 min: Derf-63” (11th) pair of queens get run down by T3chlady’s trip Fives.
42 min: 95corolla (10th). I did not see it as the table closed too fast.
63 min: KingBing420’s (9th) (AQ) runs into Lump2’s (AK).
65 min: A rare triple all-in with a SS 8thmile’s (8th) (A4), Pre01’s (AJ) and Mikeniks-Faldo’s winning (KK).
68 min: Another triple all-in!! A SS Theedouble*d (7th) has to go with (53), Lump2 raises with (Ad Kd) and K9isadog calls with (Ac 6c) with a flop with 2 clubs in it. K9 makes the flush to knock out DD and cripple Lump2.
69 min: A SS Lump2 (6th) is beaten by T3chlady’s (QQ).
78 min: In a battle of the SS’s Pre01’s (5th) (87) loses to LittleRedElf’s (A4).
99 min: T3chlady’s (4th) loses to K9isadog’s straight.
Great! Faldo is trapped between two Player of the Year award winners and a pair that have TWENTY-TWO NPP victories between them. Add my NPP wins, and you get to ……23.
104 min: A SS LittleRedElf (3rd) has to go with (A2) and K9isadog calls with (KQ) and hits a [K] on the turn.
Heads up: Mikeniks-Faldo 10300 - K9isadog 13700
110 min: Mikeniks-Faldo 7000 - K9isadog 17000
This is exactly the same total that I had against Pre01 last week. Scary.
115 min: Mikeniks-Faldo 11000 - K9isadog 13000
Back to the drawing board.
2nd break: Mikeniks-Faldo 10150 - K9isadog 13850
123 min: Mikeniks-Faldo falls victim to the dreaded smaller straight versus bigger straight at this point! At least I didn’t lose all my chips.
124 min: A SS Mikeniks-Faldo (2nd) has to go with (A2) and is called by K9isadog with (88). No help on the flop. A straight draw an over card, and an added four-card flush draw on the turn. But no cigar.
Congratulations to K9isadog on his 10th NPP win, and moves past Nahanni74 on the Walk of Fame!
