95corolla Wins His 2nd NPP Title and Has a Shot at 1st Quarter Glory!

95corolla impressed the pants...and the shirt off of Dana Workman with his performance.

He triumphed over a host of NPP’ers desperate to win tonight. The 1st quarter leaders were MIA or early exits – like a leading marathon runner that stumbles and this gave the pack a chance to make up some ground.

With one week left, here are the contenders left in the 1st quarter race;

The rest will almost assuredly have to wait until next quarter to win their seat in the NPP final. But valuable points for the two Total Points seats will still be …well, valuable!

On to the action:

19 min: Pre01 (14th) loses to T3chady’s trips.
23 min: KingBing420 (13th) hits a straight but loses to Sanster89’s full house! Ouch!
30 min: Absea (12th) goes with (QQ) but is double teamed by Sanster89 and Mikeniks-Faldo, and Faldo wins with (AA).

35 min: ThePunk75 (11th) sees his two pair get run over by 8thmile’s flush.
36 min: Tomservo2 (10th) missed it playing my hand.
47 min: T3chlady (9th) sees her (AK) get run down by a short-stacked (SS) Sanster89’s (K5) with a flop of [85384].

51 min: Sanster89 (8th) is double-teamed by Suetman123 and the winner, LittleRedElf with two pair.

54 min: A SS Suetman123 (7th) loses to Derf-63’s (88).

1st break:
Lump2 6525
LittleRedElf 4720
Derf-63 3850
8thmile 2970
Mikeniks-Faldo 2305
95corolla 630

63 min: A SS 8thmile (6th) has to go with (A6) and loses to Lump2’s (A9).

85 min: Lump2 with (AJ) flops two pair on a board of [JKA], but 95corolla is holding (KK). Ouch! Lump2 moves from 1st in chips to 3rd and 95corolla moves from 4th to 1st! Things change quickly in no-limit holdem!

98 min: Mikeniks-Faldo (5th) hits trip Kings (K9) and loses to 95corolla’s (22) full house with a [2K8K] flop and turn. To be fair, Faldo should have folded when Faldo got re-raised on the turn. Figured my trips were no good, but Faldo was in a weak 4th in chips, and Derf-63 was sitting there with less chips than a blind.

A fold probably guarantees Faldo 4th. But all the players remaining need to win to have a shot at this 1st quarter title. Faldo called looking for the nub. No nub. And NO POINTS either! Point bubble boy – a new title for Faldo.

100 min: A SS Derf-63 (4th) has to go with (A8) but falls to 95corolla’s (A4) with a [4] on the river.

2nd break;
95corolla 9960
Lump2 6235
LittleRedElf 4805

136 min: A SS Lump2 (3rd) goes with his pair of Sevens, but LittleRedElf has two pair.

Heads up: LittleRedElf 13000 - 95corolla 8000
140 min: LittleRedElf 8000 - 95corolla 13000

142 min: A SS LittleRedElf (2nd) has to go with (Ks 9s), but 95corolla has (A2).

Congratulations to 95corolla on his 2nd NPP win!
