By the time there were about 8 players remaining Wayne had a ginormous stack and it just kept growing from there. The final-3 of Wayne, Wendi and Drew played for almost an hour before Drew knocked out Wendi. Still, Wayne had a huge chip advantage going into heads-up play and it was over 8 minutes later.
This was Wayne’s fifth win as he enters his tenth Season as a Syndicator. Wayne definitely deserved this victory after completing a big project by putting much needed new curtains up in our poker room.
Here’s the Final Table:
- Scott A
- Steve A
- John B
- Jimmy X
The Leaderboard: Unlike last season no-one who has played in both events is in a combo-situation yet (ask one of our surfers what that means) as no player has earned more than 100 points yet. Wayne joins Mark S up at the top followed by a 3-way tie for 3rd place between Anders, Rowan and Drew. Wendi and Kelly are tied for 2nd place and our late night “floor” John B is in 8th to round out our current guaranteed seat-holders.

Time: We are putting a big effort into starting and finishing on time this season and we did pretty well on that this tourney with a 2:05 pm start and a 12:58 am finish One of the keys was new-guy Craig L showed up at 11:45 and had all the tables and chairs done even before our usual early arriving players showed up to set up. Thanks Craig!!
Speaking of set-up – we are looking for a few more volunteers who we can count on to show up at 1PM regularly to help set-up. It’s an easy job with enough people and it really makes a difference. Let me know if you can help.
As for the finish – we really want these tourney’s to end by 12:30 am so we’ll probably make a couple of adjustments for the next re-entry tourney since there are so many more chips in play.
Coming Up: Our next event is scheduled for September 21st at :200 pm. This is a regular deep-stack tournament with a 25,000 chip starting stack and 25 to 30 minute levels. The buy-in is $150 ($140 + $10). If you receive an evite – please RSVP as soon as possible – it really helps!
