Week 17 was a fine example of the saying “it’s not over ’til it’s over.” After this week there are four remaining weeks of the season – that translates to 64 potential points in addition to the weekly attendance point. Any player can still win a package and some players are continuing to move up the leaderboard including Andra, who with a win this week, moved from 16th to 11th. Ed came in second and moved from 11th to 6th.
The knockouts started early this week when, possibly in the first level, Gascard was out first when Darryl “sucked out” (according to Gascard).
Tina shoved 56hh and Derek W, snap called with a Full House. Tina was chasing a straight flush but in the end bricked.
With her short stack of 2400 Tina shoved two hands later AIPF with AQo & Jason was the only caller with AKo. With 2 Aces on the board Tina did not improve & was out.
Steve Z limped 300, Andra called with AJss & Brian, oddly, raised to 1500. Steve & Andra called. Two spades flopped & Brian shoved about 10K. Steve reluctantly folded & Andra called for most of her stack. Brian had red KQ on a board that had bricked. He then turned the K but Andra rivered a spade for the knockout.
Jason raised to 1K and Steve Z called with TT & Andra called in the BB.
Flop had TT but Steve Z was stealth & kept checking. Jason & Andra & saw through his ruse & he won the minimum with quads.
Pete K arrived late dressed as a businessman (apparently no one told him Halloween was last month). Derek W shove AJo and Pete smooth called the all in with QQ. J got there but not enough for Derek to improve. Pete K showed us why he is #1 on the leaderboard.
Kenny was getting short & shoved. Tammy called Q7>Kenny AJ flopped a Q7 and Kenny was out.
On a J high flop, 4 ppl in it checked to the Duckman. He shoved 16K+ with an open ended straight draw and Andra called with her AJ for the knockout. He’s headed to Hollywood to win something bigger this weekend.
