The Stacked Deck: Last Update of 1015


by James "Sir Tao" Murphy

Well, UCCT lived up to its reputation of unforgettable, but forgotten happenstance. While I remember playing in the tournament on Friday night the small details have escaped my mind. With that said it was a 25 gold buy-in with ten players and two re-buys. The top four were Asharn, Jayce, Runnaris and Tao. Asharn was the first to earn points coming in fourth. This was followed by Runaris in third. This left Tao and Jayce (for the second year in a row at this event) as the last two. Tao had a 5:1 chip advantage and used it to guarantee his top place on the stack. Jayce came in second.

This put the standings at:
Tao
25
Rillian
18
Jayce

Mathias

But wait, there was more. On Saturday night there was a 50 gold buy-in. Because of the limited amount of space we had Saturday night the table could only fit eight players and the dealer. Fortunately there were only eight players that signed up so it was not an issue.  For the record Tao sat out of this tournament to let as many other players play as possible. 

Because of this I did not watch the poker action and cannot relay the stories of bad beats or unlucky timing or that Slade came out 7th

But at the end of the night the four remaining were Daekara, Eamon, Jayce, and Therian.

Therian had survived to make the final four and earn his first points for the year but alas he did finish in fourth place. Daekara was the next to fall, coming in third. In a strong performance almost repeating his finish from an earlier tournament, Eamon came in second, and Jayce came in first. 

This put the final standings at:
Tao
25
Rillian
18
Jayce

Eamon

At this time we are announcing that we are inviting the Top Six to compete in a final, final tournament to be held at Feast of Leviathan. That tournament will start promptly at 12:30.


Upcoming gambling:
