Douge2 Wins for the 1st Time in 2016

Douge2 groupie wants Doug "on the rocks".
Douge2 beat a fourteen player field and takes the early lead in the 2nd quarter race for a seat in the NPP final.

Douge2 also sent along this:

I went into the confessional box after years of being away from the Church.
Inside I found a fully equipped bar with Guinness on tap.
On one wall, there's a row of decanters with fine Irish whiskey and
Waterford crystal glasses.
On the other wall is a dazzling array of the finest cigars and chocolates.
Then the priest came in. I said to him,
"Father, forgive me, for it's been a very long time since I've been to
confession, but I must first admit that the confessional box is much more
inviting than it used to be."
He replied: " You moron, you're on my side."

2nd - Johnnied55
3rd - t3chlady
4th - GMOgolf

Bubble - K9isadog

The 2nd quarter just started. Get in here and enjoy some real poker action at a high level.

Rachael0388 Wins for the 1st Time! - ThePunk75 Wins the 1st Quarter!

Vanessa Rousso has nothing on Rachael0388!
Rachael0388 wins for the 1st time at NPP! Congratulations to Rachael, becoming the 76th person to win an event.

ThePunk75 finished 3rd, earning enough points to overtake Mikeniks-Faldo and win the 1st quarter! Nice job Punk!

Faldo knew six players could overtake him, but some bad luck with good cards spelled an end to Faldo this night. The Punk did what he had to do to get the job done.

2nd - Kingbing420
4th - Absea98
5th - Tomservo2
Bubbleboy - LittleRedElf

The good news is the 2nd Quarter starts next week!

Johnnied55 Wins for the 1st Time in 2016

Johnnie's fans wait for him by the NPP pool.
Johnnied55 made a mid-tournament run and held on to the chip lead the rest of the way

He bested fourteen other players on this night to win a seat in the NPP Tournament of Champions. And this will not be the last time we have to put up with …..”Heeeeerrrre’s Johnnie!”

2nd – GMOgolf
3rd – Mikeniks-Faldo
4th – Theedouble*d
Bubble – Douge2

Well, next week is the last week of the 1st quarter. Possibly seven players still have a shot at 1st place!

And remember, Faldo is a wildcard. Should he finish first, the player finishes 2nd would also win a seat.

 Be here for the exciting conclusion to the 1st quarter battle for a seat in the NPP Final.

Congratulations to Johnied55 on his 4th NPP win!

Wingsfancurt Wins for the 1st Time in 2016

Willa Ford gets weak in the knees watching Wingsfancurt!
Wingsfancurt hoists the NPP Cup for the first time in 2016, besting a field of 16.

He tread water early, made a massive middle tournament run to take a big chip lead, and then held off a game KingBing420 down the stretch. Very nice!

2nd - KingBing420 (two strong finishes in a row!)
3rd - T3chlady
4th - Absea98
5th - Lump2
6th - Mikeniks-Faldo - no points (bubble boy - for the 58,340,927 th time in his career. But who is counting?)

Faldo's picture should be on every Mr. Bubble box, every detergent box and every little plastic bubble maker bottle in the world.

Faldo is making a sign for the slow traffic corner that reads: "Faldo will bubble for food".

There are still two weeks left in the 1st quarter - and it is still anyone's seat to win!

Stop by next Tuesday and get in on the hot poker action! (twss)

KingBing420 Wins for the 1st Time in 2016

Kimberly Lansing has nothing on KingBing420!
KingBing420 came back from near extinction to win the tournament tonight against a nineteen player field! That was just a wonderful job, Nancy!

Derf-63 dominated the tables early, racing to a huge chip lead. But I have a feeling the cards just stopped for him. Heads up usually comes down to cards - and Fred might have had his rush of cards just a little too soon. But a nice 2nd place finish for him.

3rd - Theedouble*d
4rd - GMOgolf - (Nice job newbie!)
5th - Mikeniks-Faldo
6th - Tomservo2
7th - Douge2 (bubble-boy - no points)

Congratulations to KingBing420 on her 4th NPP win!

To say Faldo was a little upset with PokerStars is an understatement. No posting of last week's results were seen, even though Faldo sent a letter asking what happened?

PokerStars responded that they were aware of the issue and would get it resolved. But they gave no date for that, so I was skepical.

So the next tournament started - and still no results from last week. Grrrrrr!

But this week, KingBing420's tournament and K9isadog's tournament from last week are posted and the standings on PokerStars are updated and correct!

Faldo is happy. And no one can be happy if Faldo is unhappy.
