Proving that his 1st quarter run was no fluke, Troy Steffy had a decisive victory to begin quarter 2.
The road to Tiltamania began with an 8 player game featuring 7 regulars and special guest, Jenny.
The action took awhile to pick up, going almost 2 hours before the first knockout. As usual Alan was the first victim when he was slayed by the King. The bounty, Buzz Finger was a river rat casualty once again when his aces were topped by Troy’s rivered straight (which he didn’t even see at first!). Dan was the third to taste defeat by Troy. The only player to avoid the curse of the King was Jenny as she fell to the amazing Red Herring. Beginner’s luck carried her for awhile until skill prevailed. Ricky put up a solid fight until a card drought and high blinds caused him to bow to the King. Mark apparently had all cards and no luck the entire evening. Five times he was dealt pocket aces and twice kings! Somehow, he squandered all his luck to limp into a 3rd place finish when he succumbed to the King. Heads up had The KOP versus the Chip Nazi for the first time in recent memory. JD had horrible cards most of the evening and only survived to heads up by sucking out twice all in when he was completely dominated pre-flop. Troy had a 4 to 1 chip advantage to begin. JD climbed back to almost even before he finally ran out of gas and cards. The last hand had JD with jack / ten losing to Troy’s queen / ten.
Troy managed to knock out all six other regulars in route to a convincing win and great start to the 2nd quarter. The road to Tiltamania is officially underway!
