BobyBarFights takes his First

BobyBarFights was a newcomer to our little group but he showed tonight that he is equal to the task. He brought his “A” game tonight and took home a Holdem Affair victory the first time out of the gate. He was strong the whole night. Leading after the first hour and in second when we went to the final table. He was way behind when it got HEADS UP but that didn’t last long. Sorry4urloss is a formidable opponent but tonight it was BobyBarFights who took home the gold.
- - - - - -
Here is my play-by-play.

It’s time for another Saturday night Holdem Affair. It’s been a busy week for me and I am ready to settle down with friends.

Forty-two this week. Another good sized field. This will be fun. I hope I can last awhile, my game has really been bad lately.

Wow – thirty minutes in and we are down to 30 already.

Hey, I made it to the first hour break. We have 26 left at the tables. I’m in 21st place. The cards just aren’t falling for me tonight.

Here is your leaderboard:
BobyBarFights = 5505
Sorry4urloss = 4805
VictorDave = 4205
Tater Ho = 4050
Verdoy = 3735
DrippinDodger = 3600
Marti = 3250
DaveTthatsMe = 3120
Burldog44 = 3060
Smurfette = 2810

We are down to 18 already. I had to leave the table for awhile so I don’t know how Verdoy got such a big stack but he is definitely a force to contend with now.

Okay, I’m done in 16th place. I saw a cheap flop holding J6o from the big blind and it flopped J69. Check, bet, bet and I pushed. Verdoy called with QJs and rivered a queen to send me to the rail. That is how my tournament life has been going this month.

Well, we are down to 14 – let’s count it down to the final table. Verdoy is our leader with 12430 and sorry4urloss is in second right now with 7160.

There goes drippinDodger – I missed it typing.

There goes michele1024. Verdoy took her out also.

Slim shady was very short and now he is gone as well. Down to 11 and dealing hand by hand.

They are definitely dancing the ”Tighten up” right now.

Sajules just bit the dust when she pushed KK and was called by VictorDave with Ax. The evil ace on the flop sent her packing. We have our final table.

Here is how the table sets up:
Verdoy = 12205
BobyBarFights = 10260
Sorry4urloss = 8960
Smurfette = 8045
VictorDave = 6360
ThePokerWolf = 4085
Burldog44 = 4015
Agro = 3415
Pointdume = 3255
Annieboom = 2500

Verdoy is our leader but BobyBarFights has closed the gap.

Hand 4 and annieboom pushed to steal the blinds.
Hand 7 and sorry4urloss opens and is called by agro. Flop comes Q75 and Agro called the push by sorry4urloos. Agro had QJ but sorry4urloss has AQ. Agro is gone in 10th place.

Hand 12 – annieboom pushed – no takers.
Hand 13 – ThePokerWolf opened and took the blinds.
Hand 14 – Pointdume opened UTG – Verdoy called. Flop 259. Pointdume held pocket tens and took it down.

Hand 16 and VictorDave makes his presence known – no takers.
Hand 17 – Smurfette tried to steal from the button and Verdoy made the call. 993 is the flop and Verdoy check raised Smurfette off the pot.

Hand 20 and Smurfette gets two callers from the blinds. 263r flop and Smurfette doubles up with pocket kings. Sorry4urloss is the victim.

Time for the second hour break. When we come back the antes will be 50 and the blinds 200/400.

Verdoy is still in the lead but now Smurfette is in second.

Hand 30 – annieboom pushed and stole the blinds again.
Hand 31 – ThePokerWolf opened and Verdoy called. Flop 7KQr and wolf pushed – Verdoy laid it down.
Hand 35 – VictorDave with big slick and sorry4urloss with QQ. VictorDave just couldn’t get any help this time and he is gone in 9th place.

Let’s see now – who do we have that is short – it looks like ThePokerWolf is our only short stack with 3485 and the blinds 200/400. Annieboom and Pointdume are close though with 4300 each.

Hand 40 and annieboom lays down the hand to BobyBarFights in a blind battle.

Hand 42 – Verdoy limps and Pointdume raised from the big blind. Pointdume just took down a 4200 chip pot and is getting healthy.
Hand 44 and annieboom opens to steal.
Hand 45 – blind battle between Burldog and Verdoy – Verdoy took it down.
Hand 46 – ThePokerWolf stole the blinds – he needed that.
Hand 49 – BBF raised from the button and Smurfette called. Flop TQ3r. Smurfette bet 1500 and BBF raised to 4500. - - - Smurfette folded. BBF showed AA.

Hand 52 – BobyBarFights limped to see flop of 239 – he took it down with a bet on the flop.
BobyBarFights is our new chip leader with sorry4urloss right behind.

Hand 56 and annieboom just pushed into two limpers and stole the pot.
Hand 58 and we have 4 limpers see the flop – QQK – checked to see the 7 - - check, check, check to BobyBarFights who bets 800 – fold, fold and Verdoy check raised him off the pot.

ThePokerWolf is down to 2485 and getting very short. He has to do something soon..
Hand 62 and there goes ThePokerWolf. KJo called by sorry with AT. LOL – ThePokerWolf hit a king and a jack to take it down.

Blinds are now 400/800.
Hand 65 and Pointdume opened UTG to steal. He showed QQ.
Hand 66 – Burldog limped with KQ and annieboom pushed with AJ. The table ended up KKQQx. Annieboom is gone in 8th place.

Hand 70 and we have action. Verdoy tried to steal from the small blinds and sorry4urloss and BobyBarFights both called. Board 478T8. Verdoy was all in with AA and sorry4urloss turned over 87. Verdoy made it to 7th place in his first Holdem Affair. Verdoy, I hope you know what an accomplishment that was.

It’s bubble time. Shall we dance? (I’m picturing Yule Brenner right now).

Sorry4urloss is our dominant stack now with 26680. BobyBarFights is in second with 15510. The others are officially short.

Steal - - steal - - steal - - I think I know this dance.

Hand 83 – Smurfette pushed JJ and BobyBarFights called with 44. He turned a four and Smurfette is our bubble girl.
Hand 88 and ThePokerWolf pushed 88 and called by BobyBarFights with 42s. That four/deuce turned into a straight and ThePokerWolf is done.
Hand 90 and BobyBarFights just took out burldog44.
Hand 92 – Pointdume pushed 77 into sorry4urloss with AQ. He flopped an ace and a queen to seal the deal. We are heads up.

Sorry4urloss has a 42000 – 12500 chip advantage.

Hand 95 and BobyBarFights flopped quad queens – that helps.
Hand 100 and we are getting closer – 36850 – 23500.
Hand 107 and we have even stacks.
Hand 110 – BobyBarFights flopped top pair and sorry4urloss a flush draw. Both all-in and the flush didn’t come. BobyBarFights is way in command.

Hand 111 – and we are done.

This was a great night, even if you guys kept check/raising my bluffs and folding to my monsters. Could you see my hole cards or something?

Great game BobyBarFights. This is not an easy field. You do well to just make the final table – to win your first time out is an accomplishment. Verdoy was another new face that did very well.

Another great night. See you all next week.

OK Tai

I’m sorry that I missed the Holdem Affair this week but let me give you the run down at least.

Tai pan ruled from his throne in the South Pacific tonight. OK Tai. Way to go. Irish Red was his heads up victim. Bugman22j finished third after a very good showing at the final table. Chip Leigh returned to our final table and took home the fourth place money. Finishing out the money table was one of our favorite ladies, Annieboom.

Completing the final table was gjones in 6th place. Dreammachines is fairly new to our group and made a very good seventh place finish. Glenso just couldn’t get any traction tonight on the final table and had to settle for eight place. Germanbabe graced our table to finish ninth and burldog44 was tenth.

Forty-two sharks came to the cove this week, not a bad group after the big event last week. Looks like we are going to settle down to fields in the forties for the winter. That makes for a very fun night.

I hope to see you all next Saturday night.

Jennifear Celebrates the 3rd Birthday Bash

Jennifear got off to a good start the first hour and was in the action the rest of the night. Just a glance at the leader boards might give you the impression that she cruised to the win tonight but that would be so wrong. The final table was a war. We had some new faces but also some of the old masters of this event. Sengar, sorry4urloss, SuperrSam, and Glenso have all posted multiple Holdem Affair wins. And the new faces like DaveTthatsMe and Native Spirit made a name for themselves. They will be feared at future final tables. It was a great night and I’m sure Jennifear can be proud of this victory. I know that Dave and Native Spirit can be proud of their performances even though they didn’t take home the big prize. Those bracelets will still be nice to show their friends.
- - - - -
Here is the action as I saw it at the tables.

It’s the night of the Big, Third Annual Holdem Affair Birthday Bash.

Fifteen minutes before start time and we have 100, yes ONE HUNDRED, entrants so far. This is going to be the largest field ever.

We have 112 as the official starting field. The first year we had 102 and Shootist was the victor that first year. Tiburon won the 2nd Annual Bash last year in a field of 86.

It’s time to go. Jennifear is at my table , it’s always a pleasure to play with her.
30 minutes in and Jennifear is our leader. She felted Xgames KK vs. AA.

I’ve been sent to a new table.

We made it to the first hour break. We started deep stacked tonight with 2500 chips so we still have 84 in the field. Unfortunately, I’m in 79th place.

Here is your leaderboard:
Jennifear = 13175
Winforlife = 7855
Sengar = 6810
Blackriders = 6375
Germanbabe = 6290
Hungry Guppy = 6175
Holland13 = 6140
Skippy2 = 5690
KennyJ37 = 5625
Daggit13 = 5540

One and a half hours in and Jennifear is still ruling the roost. I’ve been card dead most of the night and when I do get a hand I get no action. I did double up once with a BB special. That is the only thing keeping me going.

Well, I’m out in 52nd place. Just short of the second hour break. I pushed AKo from the small blind to a couple of limpers and Laeshalady called with 88. No help for me and I am gone.

We are down to 34 at the second hour break. We thinned the field pretty good that last hour. Here is your leaderboard:
SuperrSam = 20845
Takechances = 20250
Holland13 = 15335
Native Spirit = 13420
Laeshalady = 13340
Thunder3 = 11765
Germanbabe = 11750
Jennifear = 11565
DaveTthatsMe = 11465
Nationwidepkr = 11035

It’s looking like a good field going into the next hour. When we come back the blinds will be 200/400. I’m out now so I’ll be able to follow more of the action.

Jewelcard just pushed his AJ and ran into Daggit13 with the Hilton sisters. Jewelcard is out in 30th place.

We are down to 27 now and dropping fast as I write.

Wow, Maronie47 just pushed her 88 but ran into Nutty with KK. Gone in 25th place.

Blackriders is out in 23rd place. Laeshalady took him out also.

2 hours 45 minutes and we are down to two tables.

Jennifear has climbed back into the lead. Oops – she lost it. DaveTthatsMe took it away. With the blinds 400/800 the tables are getting very volatile.

Blinds are now 600/1200. That means 7 of the remaining 18 are short stacked. Time to move or die.

Red Barchetta is dead. 18th place.
Winforlife pushed his QQ into Takechances with AJ. Take flopped two aces to send Win packing in 17th place.
KennyJ37 just went out in 15th place – 44 vs. JJ.
HurQueRock just ran into Jennifear showing AA. 14th for the rock.
Laeshalady just pushed JT and was called by Avata with 24o. Avata paired both cards to send Laeshalady to the rail. That is just sick. We have 12 now.

The final table gets the good prizes tonight. We will see if this creates a bubble action situation.

Blinds 800/1600 now. Takechances just got moved to Jennifear’s table. We have both chip leaders on the same table now.
QQ vs. JJ and Avata is gone. DaveTthatsMe is our new leader.
Takechances took it right back on the very next hand.
No fear on this bubble. Vicious play all around.
Dealing hand by hand now.
Oh my, Germanbabe pushed her pocket threes into Jennifear who spiked her ace on the river. We have our final table.

Here is your table:
Takechances = 60080
DaveTthatsMe = 55355
Sengar = 32895
Jennifear = 27885
Native Spirit = 23035
Nutty = 21515
Sorry4urloss = 19125
Glenso = 16855
SuperrSam = 14240
Skippy2 = 9015

Blinds are 1000/2000.
Skippy2 went in very short stacked and was our first casualty,
Hand 8 and sorry4urloss bites the dust.
Hand 14 and it was Sengar with TT and DaveTthatsMe with AA. Sengar has to settle for 8th place.
Hand 16 and SuperrSam pushed 22 into AQ and survived to double up.
Hand 27 – Takechances is done.
Hand 29 and nutty was too short to do much but push. That’s it for the night.

We have five now and the blinds re 1200/2400. DaveTthatsMe is a big leader.
Okay, we have settled down to some serious action now. Native Spirit is climbing and in second now. Jennifear is holding her own and Dave is trying to push around the table but getting resistance. This is good action.
Hand 46 and Glenso pushed into Jennifear and got nailed. Good game Glenso.
Hand 47 and SuperrSam is gone and I missed it writing. Bummer. Native spirit took him out.

Three solid stacks and room to play. This could get good.
Hand 51 and Jennifear just took out Native Spirit when she hit a four card flush. We have a HEADS UP battle with pretty even stacks. Dave has the slight advantage.
Jenn is pushing and gaining ground.
Dave just caught a straight on hand 58. Big pot.
Jenn has to be a little more careful now.
Blinds 1500/300.
Hand 72 and Jenn caught a straight. She is climbing back but still has a fight.
Hand 75 and the tide has turned. Jenn flopped trips and doubled up to take the lead.
Hand 85 sand Jenn took down a good pot. She is pulling away.

Hand 87 and Jennifear has won the 3rd Annual Holdem Affair Birthday Bash.
Jennifear raised to 9600 and DaveTthatsMe pushed. Jennifear made the call. Dave turned over pocket deuces but Jennifear showed him a pair of nines. No miracles this hand. The nines held up.

What a great night.

Thanks to Marti and all of you who showed up to make this party a great.

Sorry4urloss is so sorry - but we all lost.

I’ve seen this before so many times but then we called him Verbalkint. Sorry4urloss is a winner again. He just schooled me tonight, always having just enough better to put me in my place. And I wasn’t the only one. Mike showed us why he has always been one of the most feared Holdem Affair regulars. Great Game, sir. And what a treat to be able to post this picture again.

- - - - -

So, it’s Holdem Affair time again. I’m listening to my Cyclone get their butts kicked so this will be a good diversion. I see we have 38 tonight. That is a good field. Let’s have some fun.

Thirty minutes in and Jennifear is our early leader. She isn’t at my table though so I can’t tell you much about it. Mellow Yellow is the big dog on my table and he is sitting to my left. You know, I just don’t like that.

Here come the troops. Thirty-five minutes in and we have lost our first table. I just had AKo and raised pre-flop from middle position and everyone folded. I wonder if they will do that when I’m bluffing? . . . . Well, it’s worked twice now, Just have to pick my spots.

Verdoy just doubled up off NikDomi in a classic JJ vs. AK race. The ace showed on the flop.

We made it to the first break and sorry4urloss is our leader. Here is your leaderboard:
Sorry4urloss = 6395
Luckie in lov = 4540
Daggit13 = 3705
Jennifear = 3685
Pointdume = 3330
Gjones = 2970
Bugman22j = 2835
Mellow Yellow = 2820
BlakAdder = 2740
Verdoy = 2550

We are down to 25 now and the blinds are 50/100. Time for the real tournament play to begin. I’m in 15th place with 1810. Not a terrible place to be.

Well, it’s official. My ISU Cyclones (cyclowns?) just got beat by Northern Iowa, a D IAA team. We are so bad again this year.

We are down to 20 now and the table is full again. One hour 18 minutes into the Holdem Affair.

WhoHasMyLytr just went down when AK went up against AQ and the flop came AQx. That’s just brutal.

I’m now in 16th place out of 16. 1260 and the blinds are 100/200. Hmmmm.
T9s in the BB. What shall I do? FOLD to the raise and call.
Pocket fours – and I stole the blind.
KTo from the button and BB called with AK. I got lucky and flopped a ten. 2620 at least gives me some breathing room for awhile.

I’ll settle down now for a little bit and see if I get some cards.
AQo just won a called pot. Feeling a little better yet.

I just got moved to the other table.

I just made a dumb play and went up against a short stack with a nothing hand. Now I’m in trouble.
53o – nope. 56s push. And I hit the straight to double up. That is so sick when that hand beats a strong ace like this but I find it to be decent play when you are desperate.

BTW, antes have kicked in at the 150/300 level.

OMG, I just took out Jennifear. I raised with KQ and she pushed 77. I caught a king on the flop to win it.

Down to 11 and playing hand by hand now. I’m in 3rd place.

Second hour break, we are down to 11 and I’m in second place. How the heck did I get here?

I’ll give you the leaderboard when we get to the final table – just a few hands to go now.

Blinds are 200/400 now.
I just took out Mellow Yellow when he pushed AJ and I held the rockets. We have our final table. And look who’s in first place.

Sunbob = 11745
Hungry Guppy = 8795
Sorry4urloss = 8145
Victor Dave = 7670
DriveULoonie = 6070
BlakAdder = 3920
Pointdume = 3380
Bugman22j = 2965
Smurfette = 2480
Daggit13 = 1830

The blinds are 300/600 now. That means half the table is short stacked. I think I will tighten up a bit and let the stacks sort themselves out.

Well, that wasn’t hard. Went the whole first orbit without even getting a tempting hand.
Hand 13 and BlakAdder is our first casualty. I’ve dropped to third place.
Hand 18 and we have a fight – 88 vs. AK and the flop brought an 8. Daggit is hurting now.
Hand 19 – I had JJ on the button and it got busted by Smurfette but we sent Daggit home.
Now I have to play. That hurt me.

Blinds 400/800 and I have 6080 in 6th place. Being card dead hurts.
This stinks. I am not even getting any suited connectors or anything to play.
Q3o. . .K6o. . .Pointdume pushed and is gone.
K6o and guppy raised – nope.
J5s UTG – nope. Here come the blinds again
Hand 34 - KK in the BB – Guppy pushed in the small blind with AK and flopped an ace but I hit the four card flush. OMG.
Hand 36 and Smurfette is done. – down to 6 now.
Hand 39 – that hurt. I raised with 44 and sorry4urloss pushed. I was priced in so I called. He had 88.
Hand 41 and I dodged a bullet. Pushed A9 from the SB only to have sorry4urloss call with AJ. Two pairs on the board and we split the pot.

Blinds 600/1200 now.
I need a rush or a double up badly.
Hand 51 and KK – just the blinds but that helps.
Hand 55 and I have AK but bugman22j had JJ. Ouch.
Hand 63 and DriveULoonie is gone. I backed into the money tonight.
Hand 66 and I have 33 – have to push and that darn sorry4urloss had 55. I’m done in 5th place.
Hand 77 – bugman22j had AJ but sorry4urloss had AK. Buggy is our 4th place finisher.
Hungry Guppy went down the very next hand. And I didn’t even see it because I was writing.
We are heads up and sorry4urloss is our dominant stack.
Hand 91 and we have our winner. Sorry4urloss was pressuring and pulling away when VictorDave pushed with the flush draw into Sorry4urloss with the set. The flush didn’t come for Dave and Sorry4urloss is our winner.

Another great week at the Holdem Affair tables. But folks – NEXT WEEK is the big event.

Hungry Guppy Feasted

Can you believe we have been sitting down on Saturday night to play in the Holdem Affair for 3 years now? I hope everyone has cleared their calendars for September 15 to play in the Birthday Bash. Did you get Marti’s email telling us about the special guests? SusieQue has been sending out the invites and we have several pros that are going to join us. Well, let Marti tell you:

Who are the "pros", Marti? Well, I'm glad you asked, lol. We have Jim "KrazyKanuck" Worth, Mark "p0ker H0" Kroon, Gary "Debo34" Debernardi, and finally, Shawn "WestTexasMan" Rice. Of course, there are also the "regular" pros who play with us....SusieQue, Hazy Cat, Papoorboy, Jennifear, and Holland13, just to name a few of them. Since y'all play with us all the time, y'all are part of the family, but you are still pros to us, even if we forget to mention it.

Sounds like a lot of fun to me.

Well my table just opened and it’s almost time to play. Thirty-nine already and there is still 10 minutes to go. Looks like another great field.

Two minutes to go and we are up to 46 tonight. Wow, and it’s a holiday weekend. Must be a bunch of people that have no more of a life than I have. LOL

Time to start and a couple of late arrivals are rushing in to take their seats. We officially have 48 at the start.

Let’s get it on.

Thirty minutes in and mdg2003 is our chip leader.

What a nice little rush. I won 5 hands in that orbit. And now they have sent us all to new tables. I wonder if my luck will follow.

Hey, I’m in the lead. The poker gods must be setting me up. (45 minutes in).

It’s break time and here is your leader board:
Burldog44 = 7380
Hungry Guppy = 4255
Sunbob = 4155
Jewelcard = 3970
Mdg2003 = 3800
Nik Domi = 3795
Msrinny02 = 3415
Sorry4urloss = 3305
BlakAdder = 3285
Slimshady24 = 2930

I’ve been concentrating on the tables and not writing. Half way through the second hour, Hungry Guppy is our chip leader.

Guppy just took out Jewelcard.

Dang – it’s final table time and I didn’t realize it.

Here you go:
Hungry Guppy = 19700
Fatscotsman = 12625
Blakadder = 8220
Papoorboy = 7680
Susieque = 6475
Joewindy = 5555
Sunbob = 4720
Mdg2003 = 39500
Msrinny02 = 1615
Nutty = 1460

I’m in 7th place but at least I have enough chips to play some. Antes 25 and blinds 150/300.

15 hands in and we are at the break. All ten are still alive. I have Hungry Guppy on my right and Papoorboy on my left. This is a tough table.

Blinds are 200/400 now and this table is tight. No one seems to want to battle.
Hand 21 and a fight broke out. AK v AT. BlakAdder had AK and Papoorboy had AT. Pa won when he paired the ten.

Hand 26 - I’m gone in tenth place. I called mdg2003 on a short stack all-in with pocket tens to his AQo and he flopped an ace. The next Hand I pushed my small stack from the button with KTs and Papoorboy called me with ATo. I missed the king and was done for the night in tenth place. Bummer.

Hungry Guppy is still the dominant chip stack.
Hand – 41 and Joewindy just pushed his JJ into SusieQue with AQ. The jacks held up and SQ is in deep trouble.
Hand 43 and BlakAdder is out. A8 v AQ and they both paired their kickers. Msrinny took it down.

Blinds are 300/600 now.
Hand 54 and mdg2003 pushed AK into fatscotsman holding KK. The case king fell on the flop and mdg is history. We are down to seven now.

Hand 56 and hungry guppy just caught a flush to knock out SusieQue.

Bubble time. We are paying five again tonight.

Blinds re now 400/800. All but Guppy and fatscotsman are short stacked.

Hand 71 and we are still dancing.
Hand 77 – nutty raised and Papoorboy pushed with pocket nines. Nutty made the easy call and turned over his rockets. The ace on the river was over kill. Papoorboy is out and we have our money table. That hand gave nutty a healthy stack and second place.

Hand 87 – Joewindy just doubled up off guppy to stay alive.

Blinds are now 600/1200. Poker is getting expensive. The blinds are going to force the action soon.

By hand 110, Joewindy is back in the race. And as I was typing – msrinny just pushed her AJs into guppy with KK. Msrinny02 is gone in fifth place.

Hand 121 and nutty is down to 3815 with the blinds 600/1200. He has to do something soon.
Hand 125 and the BB takes nutty all and fatscotsman send him to the lounge. Three left and hungry guppy full control of the table.

Blinds 800/1600. Guppy has about 60% of the chips.
More dancing. They are just sparing – like two heavyweight that have run out of gas. Who will wake this table up?
Hand 159 – Joewindy pushed JT into fatscotsman with 88. The ten on the flop decided. Fatscotsman is on life support. Hand 164 - All-in from the big blinds and both call. Fatscotsman had AK and Joewindy had deuces. The set came on the turn and fatscotsman is done.

And we have a horse race because guppy was in that hand to the end also. Joewindy is actually ahead.

We made it to the break. When we come back the antes will be 200 and the blinds 1000/2000. Joewindy has 36460 and hungry guppy has 35540. Virtually a dead heat.

Okay, we can see that hungry guppy likes to push if he is going to play the hand. That’s an effective strategy but it can be fatal. So far it is working and guppy is pulling ahead.

Joe has adjusted nicely and is back in the lead by hand 185.
Now guppy is just limping. He has changed his attack.
Hand 200 and Joe is back in the lead.
Hand 204 and we have our war. Joewindy with Ad 9d and Hungry Guppy with Kh Qc. The stacks are almost equal but Guppy has the edge. Guppy pushed pre-flop and you could see that Joewindy was waiting for this opportunity because he immediately called. It was decision time. The flop came 3h Th Ks. Guppy had hit his pair. No miracle ace on the turn or river for Joewindy and we had our winner. Hungry Guppy, the man who had owned the final table earlier, now owned the Holdem Affair for this week. After feisting on all of those sharks, I hope he was full.

Excellent game folks.
