SpartanFlash Wins the First Tourney of the New NPP Season

Find two of something. Faldo sees two foot prints.
It is SpartanFlash's second NPP win, and he got the first back in 2011. But due to other commitments, he can’t be as regular a player as he would like. From the looks of the way he handled this stable of poker greats many players here are fine with that!
A fantastic crowd tonight as nineteen players made it to the NPP felt on opening night. Thanks to everyone for your loyalty. Faldo is deeply thankful for this support. Many of you make it when you can - and I am thankful to all of you.
On to the action: 
8 min: A short-stacked (SS) Sanster89 (19th) runs into Rjmech with (AK).
22 min: Lump2 (18th) calls with (AQ), but Rjmech has (AK). I see a pattern here.
32 min: T3chlady (17th) sees her (KK) get run down by Rjmech’s (AK). Yep - a pattern.
39 min: A SS Tomservo2 (16th) with (AJ) is double-teamed by Wingsfancurt (77) and the winner – Theedouble*d with (KK).
43 min: Tigercub8189 (15th) Missed it playing a hand.
48 min: Absea98 (14th) with (AJ) hits two pair but ThePunk75 makes the Broadway straight with (AK). Anna Kournikova is hot tonight!
55 min: 8thmile (13th) started the tourney then blinded out.
