11 Players graced week 8 of the TGT Summer League. This week the first bustout took a long time, everyone was tussling hard for chips and not giving an inch!
Just a quick mention for munk, who played really well this week and gave snakeyes a nightmare being on his left and gave me a lot of trouble even though I had position on him. I eventually had to put a bad beat on him to bust him out! I think he was extremely unlucky to play that well and not make the top 3.
Finally though we were down to 4...
Pecker 49k chips
BurnleyMik 44k chips
Snake eyes 20k chips
Brsitolciti 10k chips
The first confrontation came when the short stacks went at it. Snake_eyes shoving from the button and Bristol making a good call with the two face cards, Jack King. Unfortunately for Bristol, Snake had woken up with pocket Kings and took down the pot and eliminated Bristol on the bubble.
With 3 left the chipstacks were:
BurnleyMik 52k chips
pecker 49k chips
The next confrontation happened when the two big stacks clashed this time. BurnleyMik's JJ was no match for the AQ of Pecker when it all went in pre flop and the board ran out: 4QAAT, giving Pecker a full house and leaving me crippled!
The very next hand, with just over 1 big blind I had to push with 8Qs and Snakeyes, who had to call, woke up with Q9!! (what a setup!!!). Obviously that busted me out in 3rd spot.
So then there were two:
Pecker 100k chips
Snakeeyes 24k chips
blinds were 900/1800 with 225 ante.
Pecker immediately started putting the pressure on and got Snake down to 16k chips, but then it all went in. Snakes AQ holding vs the K4 of pecker to ive Snake a very important double up. Snake then went on to get another double up when he made a move with K4, but was looked up by pecker with Ajs, very unluckily Snake hit a 9 on the flop and pecker whiffed the board, putting snake now into the chiplead.
at this point it was:
Snake 80k chips
pecker 45k chips.
The play was mainly pre flop for a while, with both players stealing and picking up the blinds, until the deciding hand came, when Snake open pushed from the button and pecker made the call, the cards:
Snake - A3
Board ran out:
Which gave Snake top pair aces, to take down this weeks tournament.
A big well done to snake and commiserations to pecker.

Pecker has now drawn clear of the field and is really going to take some catching, especially since his consistency has been incredible. Some big results are going to be needed if anyone can claw him back!
Here is the video for this week:
Next weeks game is now open for registration, see you there!
