Stacked Deck Update - Ashen Bounty IV



 by James "Sir Tao" Murphy

At Ashen Bounty there was a poker tournament that had nine people; 25 gold buy in, two re-buys.  A lot of familiar faces and a gambling guild member gets his first points. There was not a casino, just a game that happened because Rillian asked Tao if there could be a game. We gathered several people who wanted to play, cleared off a table, and decided to play a tournament instead of a cash game (that came afterwards). 

So that it would not interfere with all of the courses, it was decided to be two hours, fifteen-minute blinds. It started at 25/50 and ended at 1000/2000 blinds. Each player started with 4000 chips (Tao had brought the Blackwood Clontarf Casino chips, like he does to every event, just in case).

There was a lot of action quickly; the nine were down to five in less than 45 minutes.  We stayed that way for a while until it came down to four:  Aeston, Enlon, Rillan and Tao. 

Aeston was the first out, earning him his first Stacked Deck points for the year. Rillian picked up a big hand and the chip lead. But it came down to the last hand. Rillian had folded, Enlon had smooth-called out of the small blind and Tao checked the big blind. The board came K, Q, 5 rainbow. Enlon at this point was the small stack and went all in. If Tao folded he had enough chips to come in second. Enlon said “Give me a chance to win the gold”- only first and second were getting gold. So Tao called, as he had a 5 in his hand, but Enlon had a pocket pair of six’s and took second.

This puts the standings at:
