I thoroughly enjoyed tonight’s game and thank you to all those that entered. Sorry for the lack of summary from last weeks game. By the time I got round to writing it up I couldn't find any tournament history, so I'm not quite sure what happened!
Things started relatively quickly with 1st and 2nd from last weeks game (Stickleback and MB101) making early exits before the add-on period.
The big hand mid game had Sliphod - 4S 5S, Smallplayer AC AD and SMS2008 AS 8S all seeing a flop of 7S 10S and JH. All the money went in with Sliphod prevailing after hitting his gut shot straight quickly followed by his nut flush.
Much sparing then ensued with Munk and I letting our stacks get a bit low and being forced all in with a less than ideal hands, going out in 5th and 6th respectively.
Kram was the unlucky bubble boy, being out flopped by SMS2008. 10 3 3 came out on the flop with Kram hitting top pair and getting all his money in, unfortunately SMS had A 3 in hand and had him over a barrel.
Then we were down to 3. Mariner had been on the edge a few times and battled his way back with some solid poker, but he went out in third attempting to go down in TGT folklore. His AD 8C went up against MBNoob's KD 2H, out came a flop of 10D JD KD, all the money went in and I'm sure Mariner knew he was behind....but with plenty of outs. Sadly for him he didn't hit the hollywood hand, I bet if he had everyone in Grimsbys Wetherspoons would have found out about his Royal Flush by the end of the week.
Then we were down to 2 and it didn't last long. SMS2008 had 8S 10S in hand and hit a pair of 10's on the turn, feeling confident on a JC 2D 6H 10D board all his money went in.....but MBnoob turned over a pair of queens and just to make sure of it he hit his third queen on the turn.
Well done everyone! The tournament standings are below.
If anything in my summary is incorrect or you want me to edit any details please let me know. I did some of it from memory and I'm quite tired, so it may not be that accurate
