Tomservo2 Wins His 2nd NPP Tourney of the Year

Tomservo2 at least got a good view at the gold, but couldn't reach it.
Tomservo2 came up short of the 1st quarter seat, but has a good point total to show for his efforts.

But what he did do, was stop Derf-63 from overtaking Rjmech for the 1st quarter seat!

It was by the smallest margin EVER in the history of NPP as Rjmech beat Derf-63 by .09 points! Wow!

Derf-63 needed a win and Tomservo2 kept that from happening with a great head to head battle.

And considering Derf-63 won back to back NPP heads up tournaments, that was no small feat!

Congratulations to Tomservo2 on the fine effort. Also to Derf-63 for his great quarter of play. But especially to Rjmech who already has secured his spot in the NPP Finals!

On to the action:
15 min: Theedouble*d (14th) has two pair and so does 95corolla – with a higher kicker.
25 min: A short-stacked (SS) Wingsfancurt (13th) loses to Tomservo2’s higher pair.
40 min:  Lump2 (12th) has (AQ) and loses the coin flip to T3chlady with (TT).
42 min: Rjmech (11th) missed it losing my own hand.
49 min: Mikeniks-Faldo (10th) gets run down by a K9isadog flush. So what else is new?
50 min: Suetman123 (9th) blinds out.
1st break:
T3chlady    4282
Absea98     4100
Derf-63    3635
95corolla    2710
ThePunk75    2270
Pre01    1517
K9isadog    1478
Tomservo2    1008
The battle now begins:
84 min: A SS Absea98 (8th) with his (33) and Pre01 (7th) with (KQ) lose to K9isadog’s straight.
85 min: ThePunk75 (6th) sees his (AQ) get no help, but Tommyservo2’s (KJ) trips up the Jacks.
90 min: T3chlady (5th) sees her two pair lost to Derf-63’s higher two pair.
92 min: 95corolla (4th) sees his full house lose to K9isadog’s higher full house!
103 min: A SS K9isadog (3rd) has to go with (JT) and runs into Derf-63’s (AQ).
Heads up:    Derf-63    16900    -      Tomservo2     4100
105 min:      Derf-63    18000    -      Tomservo2     3000
110 min:      Derf-63    16000    -      Tomservo2     5000
2nd break:      Derf-63    14000    -      Tomservo2     7000
125 min:       Derf-63    10500    -      Tomservo2     10500
129 min: Derf-63 (2nd) has a pair of Queens, but Tomservo2 has two pair.
Congratulations to Tomservo2 on his 13th overall NPP win!

K9isadog Wins His First of 2013!

Brenda Asnicar has her eye on K9isadog!
And it will not be his last! He is only getting started this year - trust Faldo. Nice job K9!

Well, Faldo was absent for the first time since his heart surgery. I lost my stepfather about two hours before the tournament and had to rush to his house to be with my sister, who found him. My brother had left him not 30 minutes earlier!

My stepdad had just returned home from a physical rehab facility for breathing difficulties. He was not ready to come home, but he insisted and the rehab center said....whatever. So home he went to die in the house he paid for.
There is something to be said for that. Every man deserves AT LEAST that.

He lived 80 years and was a good husband to my mother (who we lost 10 years ago) for over 30 years. And for that, I am forever grateful, as they were the best years of my mother's life.

Not to worry about funeral visits friends as that was not his wish. A quiet family memorial is planned, as was discussed before the rehab stay was necessary.

On with the finish:
1st - K9isadog
2nd - Douge2
3rd - Suetman123
4th - Derf-63
5th - Pre01
6th - Sanster89
7th - Mikeniks-Faldo (I should be absent more often)
8th - Theedouble*d
9th - Wingsfancurt
10th - 8thmile
11th - T3chlady
12th - ThePunk75
13th - Absea98
14th - LittleRedElf
15th - 95corolla
16th - Rjmech

Rjmech Wins for the First Time in 2013

She was just floored by Rjmech's performance! At poker too!
Prediction: It won’t be the last. Rolling thru the NPP line up, Rjmech strengthens his lead on the 1st quarter standings. Two weeks left and he can be caught. So, lets get busy!
Oh, and good luck with that!
If you are a poker player and are not playing in THIS league on PokerStars .net, then you are missing out ………BIG time!
On to the action:
9 min: Mikeniks-Faldo (16th) with (JJ) sees his trip Jacks on the flop, lose to Wingsfancurt’s (AA) with trip Aces on the same flop!
There is no whining or crying in poker. So Faldo just shot his PokerStars mouse pad with a shotgun. Nothing over the top - with just a little frustration release. A pretty much normal type reaction to minor disappointment.
19 min: Sanster89 (15th) sees his (77) lose a coin flip to Derf-63’s (AT) when a [J] hits the board.
25 min: Tomservo2 (14th) with trip Jacks loses to Rjmech’s full house.
39 min: A short-stacked (SS) ThePunk75 (13th) goes with (AT) and loses the coin flip to Wingsfancurt with (66).
43 min: A SS Theedouble*d (12th) pairs his Sevens but runs into Derf-63’s (QJ), who paired his Queen.
51 min: A SS Tigercub8189 (11th) with (Ac 2c) runs into KingBing420’s (AK).
1st break:
Derf-63    4500
Rjmech     3670
Absea98   3270
KingBing420   3225
Lump2    2545
Wingsfancurt   1680
T3chlady   1500
95corolla    1420
Suetman123   1245
LittleRedElf   1025
62 min: T3chlady (10th) missed it.
66 min: A SS Wingsfancurt (9th) runs into Suetman123’s straight.
68 min: KingBing420 (8th) has (QQ), but Lump2 has (KK)!
72 min: 95corolla (7th) has (AA), but LittleRedElf is holding (TT) and hits a [T] on the river! Wow!
74 min: Suetman123 (6th) is knocked out by Derf-63’s higher two pair.
77 min: LittleRedElf (5th) is knocked out by Rjmech’s higher two pair.
79 min: A SS Absea98 (4th) goes with (77) and loses a coin flip as Lump2 has (AT) and hits a [T] on the river! Saw this twenty minutes ago.
84min: Lump2 (3rd) runs into Rjmech’s trip Sixes.
Heads Up:     Rjmech     21600      -     Derf-63     2400
87 min: A SS Derf-63 (2nd) has to go with King high, but Rjmech pairs his Jack.
Congratulation to Rjmech on his 6th NPP win!
