Papoorboy outlasted Houn in a battle royal of a heads up match. The heads up lasted for 80 hands. Houn started with a commanding lead only to see Papoorboy take it away. Then Houn took it back. At one point Houn disconnected from an Internet delay and Papoorboy showed his class by sitting out until Houn reconnected. Papoorboy finally prevailed for the win. This is at least Pa’s fifth Holdem Affair victory. I’m not sure if I am missing any wins from the days when there was an afternoon Holdem Affair.
Rshocker took third place honors and knocked me out in the process. I was glad to settle for fourth place. Burldog44 went down in a blaze to finish fifth place.
Merry Christmas to all of you. And may the spirit of this celebration brighten your week and your hearts.
