Week 14: Jim Collins & Brett Pope celebrate Black Friday early with a great deal! (They chopped 1st)
After this week’s chop, Jim Collins and Brett Pope have moved into the #2 & #3 spots on the season leaderboard with #1, Joe Parrish, holding a 10 point lead over Jim. It is looking like we’ll likely have 7 Main Event seats plus addition minor seats at our annual week 21 “losers lounge” so lots of seats to award to our members. Last place (cough Andra cough Doc Brown cough) is currently 33 points behind 7th place on the leaderboard so, with 84 points left to win over the next 6 weeks, noone is out if it!
As a reminder: league members mark your calendar- we’ll be playing Monday November 21st as a hurricane makeup night.
For those interested in the league keep following this blog for upcoming details about our spring season starting the first Thursday of January. Expecting 7++ Main Event seats this Spring!
At the feature table it was a chop for Shawn O’Brien & Jason Barnett disappointing both of them.
Clive was all in short and Brett Pope called for the knockout. Clive may have used the word “wanker”.
At the outer table Joe Parrish knocks Donny Campbell out.
Jake Naumann doubled thru Dave Bennett!
Moved to the feature table, Donny Campbell’s QT was good vs Shawn O’Brien who kept jamming his 24bb stack at 300/500. Shawn hit his Q on the flop & jammed but his kicker was a 2.
