Douge2 Returns to the Winner’s Circle

Douge2's entourage waits for him after the tourney.
This guy should be here more often. Faldo just doesn’t mean playing at NPP, but winning the tourney. This man can play!
Faldo adds to his untouchable record of 2nd place finishes, to go with his untouchable record of final table and cashing bubble finishes.
The tables were a little uneven, as we had three sit-outs for a while and it soon turned to just one. Wingsfancurt never did make it to the NPP room. But living in Las Vegas, sometimes things happen.
On to the action:

5 min: Sanster89 (18th) with (TT) sees SpartanFlash (AdJd) hit his flush!
9 min: KingBing420 (17th) sees her two pair get run down by Rjmech’s full house!
10 min: ThePunk75 (16th) Missed it playing my hand.
16 min: Theedouble*d (15th) sees his (JJ) pair run into SpartanFlash’s (AA)! Ouch!
25 min: A short-stacked (SS) Tomservo2 (14th) with (KQ) lose a coin flip to Suetman123’s (TT).
32 min: A short-stacked (SS) Derf-63 (13th) runs into Mikeniks-Faldo’s (AA).
33 min: LittleRedElf (12th) with two pair is out-kicked by Douge2 with the same two pair.
41 min: K9isadog (11th) with two pair runs into Rjmech’s flush.
48 min: A SS Tigercub8189 (10th) Missed as the table closed.
49 min: A SS Pre01 (9th) Missed it answering a phone! Where are the Faldo secretaries!
52 min: Suetman123 (8th) has a straight that loses to Lump2’s flush.
55 min: Wingsfancurt (7th) blinds out.
1st break:
Lump2   7285
Mikeniks-Faldo   6710
SpartanFlash   4715
Douge2   3650
Absea98   2865
Rjmech   1775
69 min: Absea98 (6th) with (AK) loses a coin flip to Lunp2 with (77).
78 min: Rjmech (5th) hits his flush, but SpartanFlash has a higher one! Ouch!
83 min: Lump2 (4th) sees his pair of Queens run into Mikeniks-Faldo’s (AA).
With deep stacks, a long session ensues.
116 min:  A SS SpartanFlash (3rd) goes with (K6), but Mikeniks-Faldo has (A9).
2nd break:
Douge2    16300
Mikeniks-Faldo    10700
126 min:  Mikeniks-Faldo (2nd) moves in with (99) and is called by Douge2 with (Ah Th) and Faldo loses the coin flip as his full house is out-pipped by Douge2’s.
Congratulations to Douge2 on his 7th NPP victory!
