At Tournaments of Blackwood we ran a 25/30 (25 Blackwood/30 other) gold Hold Em poker tournament. 5000 chips, 15 minute blinds. 10 people entered and it did come down to a chip count for the last two players standing. The chip difference was less than 10% (23800 vs 26200) when the final blinds were 1000 2000. It was a very interesting to watch the different styles play against each other.
Congradulations to Mathias for the win, Daekara for second, Nova for third and Mestoph for fourth.
This puts the standings at
1) Mathias 9
2) Tao 8
3) Shadow 6
4) Rillian 5
5) Daekara 3
6) Phoenix 3
7) Nova 2
8) Jayce 2
9) Mestoph 1
10) Jinx 1
11) Eldritch 1
Ties were decided by how the players played against each other last, or if they have not played then the most recent win.
