game289Gauntlet Game 10 Summary

 

This is the first of many future Gauntlet summaries. If you are not sure what the Gauntlet is, be sure to click on the word “Gauntlet” to find out and register. Basically, it is game289 own private league where we donk around and have fun. You will see in a lot of the hand histories there is some bashing/talking, and that’s because we all know each other and have a good time. If you haven’t already, register and play with us next game. In these summaries, you will see the good, the bad, and the ugly of hands. After I summarize the tournament, I will post the hands of the night, including “lol cooleraments” which will be the cooler of the night, “wtf was he thinking” which will be the questionable play of the night, along with “donk of the night” which will be the worst beat.

It was trick or treat on 10/31, and 20 people decided to play poker rather than dress up (unless of course they dressed up to play poker?) Before game 10 began, here were the top 10 standings:

FTR Name – GP – Points

Jimmy Mac – 6 – 489.07

Alexos – 7 – 374.32

givememyleg – 6 – 355.11

bigred – 5 – 338.53

kmind – 4 – 334.84

ackthecat – 5 – 287.89

badgers – 4 – 264.92

Shifubowa – 6 – 262.65

Mirage – 5 – 254.32

ChrisTheFish – 4 – 229.47

Out of the top 10 standings, these are the ones who played in game 10; givememyleg, bigred, kmind, and ackthecat. Other players who donked around were Sauce123, bigspenda73, a rare appearance by Flomo, and drmcboy (who likes to think no-limit is limit).

Let’s get to the action. It didn’t take long for the gauntlet to find its first casualty, the current 4th place player bigred. He was done in by Sauce in the first 10 minutes, as you can see below:

bigred07 said, “lol”

Sauce123 collected 2990 from pot

He did play the hand pretty weird, from the minbet preflop, to the check on the turn letting Sauce get there; but all in all bigred is a good player (bigred plays poker?!)

Warpe was also making sure this game wouldn’t last long, with two early eliminations making him the early chip leader, starting with kmind (toddanderson on PokerStars):
