TooBIGAKQ Wins 1st Tourney of Round Three

Three......make it four cheers for TooBigAKQ!

Sorry for the lack of story on this win as Faldo is away on a golf outing.

TooBIGAKQ wins the first round of the 3rd quarter, and wins for the 4th time this year and 4th time in NPP history. BIG is moving up the Walk of Fame! He beat field of eleven players.

ThePunk75 came in second as his pair of Queens lost to TooBIGAKQ’s two pair.

Faldo squeaked into 3rd due to a hot run of big cards.

Only two players received points in this round, so of course there is plenty of time to catch the leaders.

Be here for the best poker action and poker league on

LittleRedElf and Faldo Win in Style

Tara Reid waits in LittleRedElf's Vegas hotel room.

LittleRedElf did it in Las Vegas and at Niks Poker Palace – at the same time!

Faldo just took care of business at NPP. Faldo had the 2nd quarter lead and capped that off with a win on the last night to capture the 2nd quarter seat in the NPP Finals!

Luckily for LittleRedElf (not that the Elf needs luck with his poker talents), he held on to 2nd place – even though he missed the last two rounds at NPP – because he is in Las Vegas!

But as explained before – Faldo is a wildcard! His win or total points win a spot, but don’t take a spot. So The Elf also wins a seat in the NPP Final. Congratulations Elf.

What that does for everyone else is it eliminates the always dangerous Elf – and the ever persistent Faldo - from stealing a seat, either in the 3rd or 4th quarter or the two seats there for total points, or the seat for winning the Tournament of Champions!

Lots of seats still up for grabs so get to NPP and get one!  The beauty is Absea98, LittleRedElf and Faldo can’t win one. They got theirs.

Now for a report from the World Series of Poker. LittleRedElf sends in this report:

“I cashed in Event #30 $1000 NL Holdem Tournament finishing 204th out of 2151. I got knocked out when my [JJ] lost a coin flip against [AQ] when a [Q] hit the river. That’s poker!
I survived earlier when I was forced to make a move with [Qs Ts] and my caller had [KK]! I hit my Spade flush on the river.
I also played in the $1500 HORSE event and did not cash.
I am down slightly in tournament play and up some in live games in between tournaments.
My next event is the Seniors WSOP Event. I will send Faldo a report.”

Other NPP news: ThePunk75 and TooBIGAKQ were also in Sin City, but I did not get a report….. yet.

Also T3chlady is on her way there for poker action.

Las Vegas shakes in their tinsel when NPP’ers come to town – because we got game!

TooBIGAKQ Wins for the 3rd Time in 2015

Trish waits for TooBIGAKQ by the NPP trout pond.
TooBIGAKQ may not capture the 2nd Quarter seat, but he has moved up the Total Points Standings with this win. And he still may get the 2nd Quarter seat.

He also moved up the Walk of Fame!

Absea98, our 1st quarter winner expands his total point lead also.

There are still a couple people with a chance to catch the leader Faldo. But remember, Faldo is a wild-card. Whoever finishes second to Faldo this quarter - if Faldo holds on - also wins a seat in the NPP Final.
That race is wide open! Be here next week for the exciting conclusion to Quarter #2.

On to the action:
10 min: Tigercub8189 (13th) Finished here last time we had thirteen players.
15 min: Mikeniks-Faldo (12th)
20 min: ThePunk75 (11th)
45 min: Wingsfancurt (10th)
50 min:  Theedouble*d (9th)
55 min: T3chlady (8th)
57 min: K9isadog (7th)
78 min: Sanster89 (6th)
82 min: Tomservo2 (5th)
98 min: Suetman123 (4th) She finished here last time we had thirteen players.
99 min: Derf-63 (3rd)
100 min:          TooBIGAKQ       14000         -           Absea98          5500
62 min: Absea98 (2nd) loses when TooBIGAKQ hits trip eights. Absea98 finished second last time we had thirteen players too!

Congratulations to TooBIGAKQ on his 3rd NPP win!

LittleRedElf Wins for the 2nd Time in 2015

Amanda Beard keeps a look out for LittleRedElf by the NPP pool.

The “Master” put another beat down on his subjects as The Elf wins again, and puts himself in 2nd place in the 2nd quarter standings.

There are two weeks left in the 2nd quarter and there are plenty of contenders vying to overtake Faldo – who accidentally and by a huge stroke of luck - has the lead right now.

Just a reminder to all – Faldo is a ‘wildcard’. If he wins a seat in the NPP Finals by winning a quarter or by the Total Points standings, OR a seat by winning the Tournament of Champions, - the person finishing 2nd also wins a seat!

In other words, Faldo is in the lead but it’s like he is not! So, get in there. You can take him out or finish just behind Faldo – and it is all the same to you.

On to the action:
5 min: Derf-63 (14th) went with (QQ) and Douge2 ran him down with (KJ).
15 min: Douge2 (13th) Doug, ……speed kills!
18 min: Wingsfancurt (12th)
19 min: Sanster89 (11th)
30 min: Theedouble*d (10th) finished 10th last time we had fourteen players.
31 min: Absea98 (9th)
32 min: Tigercub8189 (8th)
33 min: T3chlady (7th)
37 min: Suetman123 (6th)
40 min: Tomservo2 (5th)
45 min: Rachael0388 (4th)
46 min: K9isadog (3rd) blinded out. Got here, but everyone played tonight like their pants were on fire – and it was a shorter field than average also.

Heads up:        LittleRedElf     20,000    -      Mikeniks-Faldo    1000
50 min:            LittleRedElf     19,300    -      Mikeniks-Faldo    1700
55 min:            LittleRedElf     19,000    -      Mikeniks-Faldo    2000
58 min:            LittleRedElf     12,000    -      Mikeniks-Faldo    8000

59 min: Mikeniks-Faldo (2nd) runs into LittleRedElf’s (KK)!

Congratulations to LittleRedElf on his 23rd NPP win!
