Sadly Rex finished in 12th when his top pair was overcome by a set.
The Final Table:
Like the second hand in BackstabX_x flopped quad Jacks. First to go was blueeyesy, Backstab'sAA > A9. He then KO'd rjr3143 out with 88. Then Satriales then knocked out ggdel when his set of sixes beat A9, all of this was in quick succession. For a while play went on, I picked up AA and AK but gained relatively little. DML's nemesis, hadji12 narrowly avoided being eliminated two or three times by luckily splitting the pot, much to DML's (and our) frustration.
Then FINALLY DML's moment came when Sat's 99 held up against hadji's KTdd.
Backstab then continued his streak by knocking out a now short stacked paperopol. The Final Four!
I managed to double up to 30k with Gaz on 25k. The other two were on 50k and 170k. Gaz then doubled up against Backstab to knock him down to 135k. After much more play, Gaz made the call of the tournament. He raised with A9, Backstab who had been playing really solid hands then re-raises hugely to put Gaz all in. He calls and Backstab flips over T7. Gaz took it down!
A short while later I picked up Aces in the big blind. Backstab is on the button and raises me, I go all in, he shows KJ and I take it down to finally build a respectable stack after being short since the start of the final table.
PsychicSykes says (22:58):
This is better than half the shite they call poker on Sky Sports
Satriales was next to fall.
Shortly after I eliminated Holger, KQ > JJ.
After a bit of HU Backstab took me down after I went all in with middle pair and gutshot straight draw. He had top pair and took it down.
Well played all!
