Theedouble*d Wins for the 3rd Time in 2014

Theedouble*d is not trying to back into the 3rd quarter seat like Larissa!
It seems to be all or nothing for Theedouble*d. He is the only one so far to win for the 2nd time this quarter and still does not have the 3rd quarter lead. Others are picking up place and show points along the way to pad their totals.
But T2D will be a threat the rest of the way, as the current leaders are surely aware.
Still plenty of time to catch everyone, so get into the game!
On to the action:
21 min: Lump2 (13th)
23 min: Derf-63 (12th)
32 min: LittleRedElf (11th)
34 min: Tigercub8189 (10th)
36 min: Sanster89 (9th)
41 min: A short-stacked (SS) Mikeniks-Faldo (8th) sees his (88) lose a coin flip to 95corolla and his (AJ) when a [J] hits the rive55 min: The Poker Stars Break Monster worked overtime as Absea98 (7th) with two pair and Wingsfancurt (6th) with trip Nines – run into Theedouble*d’s straight. The Break Monster strikes again!
1st break:
Theedouble*d    9200
95corolla     3400
Suetman123    2700
T3chlady    2200
Douge2   2000

83 min: Douge2 (4th) goes with (TT) but Theedouble*d hits two pair.
100 min: 95corolla (3rd) has a pair of Kings but Theedouble*d has a pair of Aces.
Heads up:                 Theedouble*d      12800      -      Suetman12       6700
Suetman123 makes the Heads Up two weeks in a row! Way to go Sue!

T3chlady Finishes 7th in a NL Holdem Tourney at Firekeepers!

Nothing but cheers for T3chlady!
Much to the surprise of T3chlady, she finished 7th at the Firekeepers Casino Texas Holdem Sunday Tournament on July 6th. It is not a surprise to Faldo. After all, T3 is an NPP’er.

Both Rjmech and T3chlady entered this event with about 60 others. The buy-in was $120. 10K in starting chips. $6000 prize pool paying 8 places and a consolation bubble prize.

Oh great, two bubble chances for Faldo to hit when he enters this event.

Unfortunately, Rjmech got busted early, but T3chlady arrived at the final table with 70K in chips (above the average) and within sight of the chip leader.

Some of the memorable hands;

T3chlady doubles up when she raises on the button with (7c 6c) and gets called by the big blind. The flop was [3d 4c Jc]. Jean raised with the flush draw and the inside straight draw. The BB called. The turn was the [5h]. The BB pushed, representing a straight. Jean called and had to survive the river as the BB had (Kc Tc). She dd!

T3chlady didn’t always dodge bad luck. Twice she had (AA) and lost to flushes! She also lost to (76) as her two pair fell to a runner – runner straight! Good grief! But play on she did.

She also had some luck as she hit trips three times to stay in the hunt. She also hit a straight once to beat an opponent’s trips. You do need luck – as well as talent – to cash in a tournament. No doubt about it.

At the final table with the blinds at 6K/12K, T3 pushed with (Ah Qh) and was called by the chip leader with (TT). Jean hit a pair of Aces but the chip leader tripped his Tens, sending T3 to the rail – but with $350 in her pocket.

She said it was a great tournament with 20 minute blinds and lots of happy faces. She highly recommends this tournament.

Thank you so much for the tournament write up Jean. And congratulations!
