Week 9: Subs Subs Everywhere! But they didn’t win. A chop for Brenda & Dave!
We had quite a few players traveling this week, but due to our generous summer session sub policy it was not an issue.
We had Isaac subbing for Jeremy Becker, Chrissy subbing for The Duckman, Brandon Byers subbing for Wally, Allen Wiseman subbing for Ed Vanlandingham, Chris Williams subbing for Jacob Naumann, and Alex Brown subbing for Andrea Ruosi
After a slow start to the super aggressive play that we are used to seeing (usually one or two players are rebuying in level one or two), At the feature table, 100/200, Brenda raised to 600, Jordan Joeckel & Jeff Gordon called. The flop was three diamonds. Brenda bet, Jordan raised to 3500 & Jeff shoved. Brenda folded (TT), Jordan called. Jeff’s flush was good and Jordan was sent to the rail. This is Jordan’s first rebuy of the season & first last longer. This confirms: The last longer is bad luck. Maybe.
At the outer table, the *Rat Bastard’s quads bested Dugg’s AK. *Mark Wiser
Allen Wiseman, playing for Andrea Ruosi, bested “Not that” Jeff Gordon’s flush with a slightly higher one for heaps.
Mark Winchell shoved his Kaucher short stack and SuperDave called with 89o and flopped 2 pair.
Andra Zachow, down to 5 bb was all in with 88 after SuperDave 3 bet Brenda. Brenda called and in the end Andra tripled to stay alive.
Michael Laake picked the wrong hand to bluff the short stack with, doubling Jeff Gordon.
Steve Deloache doubled through Jordan Joeckel.
Jordan said “I’ll just give you my chips and go home, I’ve been gone for days and ready to leave”. Steve Deloache didn’t believe him.
Allen Wiseman’s AK rivered Steve Deloache for the knockout.
Brenda rivered an A to beat Michael Laake’s flush with a full house.
Jordan Joeckel busted Andra, who raised all in 4500 with 44.
Jason Barnett doubled through SuperDave Kaucher
Brenda sent SuperDave home. She might be the wall this week! With Andrea Ruosi traveling both Michael Laake and Brenda have had walls comparable to the famous “Ruosi Wall” as it is now known as.
Jeff Gordon doubled through Jason Barnett
Jordan Joeckel was the final table bubble.
We had our final table!
Chrissy, subbing for the Duckman, was out 9th this week. Chrissy will be back next week subbing for Dave Miller.
We have 5 substitutes at the final table this week for members who traveled down to Hollywood for the Hard Rock Poker open.
Brandon Byers, subbing for Wally Maddah, finished in 8th place when Alex Brown, playing for Andrea Ruosi, had the best hand.
Allen Wiseman ran his AQ into Alex Brown’s Kk. Oops.
Chris Williams, playing for Jacob Naumann, doubled through Alex.
Brenda knocked Jason Barnett out 6th sending the Bronze God to the rail. He was happy to not be there too late, he had plans to lay out Friday in the Sun.
Chris Williams, playing for Jacob Naumann was out 5th!
Jeff Gordon was out 4th
This hand was a chop for Dave Miller & Alex AQ=AQ
Dave Miller doubled through Alex Brown with AA. Alex, subbing for Andrea, was attempting to have a “Ruosi Wall”.
Alex doubled through Brenda with a full house.
Brenda doubled through Alex with 79dd>55 AIPF. Earlier she told Dave & Alex she’d only shove/call a shove with AT or better or a pair. Apparently that was a ruse.
And Brenda doubled through Alex again!
….and Alex doubled through Dave Miller. It was like the movie Groundhog Day.
And Alex was finally out in 3rd.
Dave Miller doubled through Brenda for a huge stack!
Brenda, very short, was all in with 78o. Dave called blind (no pun intended) and woke up with AT. Brenda flopped a straight to double up.
After Brenda doubled through Dave again, they agreed to chop first place. Dave had been up for four days.
The final table in order of finish was:
1. Brenda Worley & Dave Miller chop
3. Andrea “Alex” Ruosi
4 Jeff Gordon
5. Jacob “Chris” Naumann
6. Jason Barnett
7. Ed “Allen” Vanlandingham
8. Wally “Brandon” Maddah
9. Marv “Chrissy” Karlins
