We’ve finished 14 of 20 weeks of the Spring WSOP league and there is no guaranteed winners yet! Trey Harrell is still in 1st place on the season leaderboard but only ahead of #8 by 17 points so a little more than 1 win. There are 84 points left to win (not incuding weekly participation points) over the last 6 weeks of the season, so no qualified player is out of it!!! Some need some run good for sure but it can happen! We have covered 6 full WSOP $10K seats so far so attendance is very important to get to our goal of 8 seats. So many players are very close in points that we are expecting a pretty good amount of rebuys the rest of the season as well since points are becoming more important each week!
This week George Imes and RedHat Dave Menosky chopped first. Last week Dave wore a gray hat and did not make the final table. This week he was wearing 100% red and chopped first. Coincidence? we don’t think so. George moved up 5 places on the leaderboard with just this one win!
We had league alumni Ed VanLandingham, Clive Gavin, and Allen Wiseman substituting this week for Marie, Christian and Mike. Players are allowed up to 6 substitutes to allow for conflicts in their schedules. Our goal is as many WSOP Main Event seats as possible – this is why people join the league – to play the WSOP Main Event!!!
One of the first notable hands was at the feature table. At 200/300 blinds Andra opened 800, about 4 people called and George Imes raised to about 4500. Andra folded and Peter Pompeii jammed and George called. In the end Peter and George chopped AJo=AQo.
Jason Barnett’s QQ could not beat Jacob Naumann’s 46hh and he was out
Cy’s short stack 67dd shove was good vs Mo Maher
