Week 6: Herb gets the win! League members discover what is on that tablet he’s always looking at!
Herb Woodbery bested his 2nd place finish in week 5 by taking 1st this week with back to back Final Tables. Members have been curious after seeing that ever present tablet wherever he plays. The cat was let out of the bag when secret sources who asked not to be named revealed screen shots of his tablet.
Some notable hands during the week:
Matt shoves pre flop his last $4300 just before 1st break. Rob calls w77. Matt turns over A9 and says “not bad for shoving blind.” Rob flopped quads.
Mid tourney Rob called Kenny’s preflop raise with a 68 hearts. Kenny had 66. The board ran out the straight with 3 4 5 X 7 on river and Rob’s higher straight gives him the double up through Kenny.
Then there were 10: The final table!
At the final table Rob’s 22 vs Joe Parrish’s AQ on a flop of Q X 2 allowed Rob another double-up.
Once down to 3 players Rob jammed with A8 vs Kenny’s AA. Kenny’s aces held and he went to heads up vs Herb.
