The notable event of the tournament: after finishing on the bubble for every tournament I've ever seen him in - Richard broke through and cashed in the money, chopping with legendary Fast Eddies Regular Pete, joining us for the first time. Welcome to the in crowd, Peter!

I'll say yay. (And I'm pretty sure I was the 4th place bubble because Joe Mike was already at the cash game when I left the tournament table. In fact, I bubbled the whole night- 4th in tourney, didn't leave when I was up a little in the cash game, and continually playing catch up in my Omaha education. Still, I had fun which is why I stuck around.)

Subject: Sneak in Tournament
With 5 left, we decided to give 4th and 5th their money back - then the standard 50/30/20 split. Jack was poised to make a run, doubling up twice late - but finally ran out of steam and settled for 5th. I was next out, my AK running into Sam's KK. Robin played great in her first showing with us, and settled for 3rd. Richard, who at one point had 2 big blinds left - roared back and would have been almost even with Sam while heads up, but an unfortunate turn card sealed the deal for a 2nd place finish. Sam was the man of the hour, who not only won the tournament - but it seemed like he knocked out half the field.
Ken’s summary of his game on January 5th, 2013:
Welcome to the club to our new members: Aimee , Omar, Wes and welcome back Corey. I think you all learned the 2 basic rules to play with us:
1) have fun
Once we got down to 4, it went very fast. Ahmed came in 4th, and I'm pretty sure he was just itching to get into the cash game Billy started up on table 2. Pat then knocked me out - and in doing so became the first person to knock both me and Billy out of the same tournament.....since the last time he played with us. That left Pat vs Chris, who was saved earlier by cracking Corey's AA with QQ all in pre and the mircle Q on the river. In a heads up war of attrition, I think it lasted 2 hands - with Chris winning with something beating something.
We ended up playing cash until about 2am, and I remember two things:

16 participants tonight - separated by 2 tables: The Quiet Adult Serious Poker Players, and The Monkey House Kiddie Table. Randy was FKOotN (First Knock out of the Night) - who hit a straight and ran into Billy's full house.
Welcome to the club Richard and Will. Richard was on his way to the final table until his KK was cracked by my preflop all-in AK. Sorry about that Richard. Will fared a bit better, riding his success from the Monkey House table all the way to 4th - happily winning the Bubble Prize: a can of stale Coors Light that expired in 2008. He even took a swig (and turned green).
James finished 3rd when his QQ was cracked by Joe's JJ. About even in chips, Joe and Billy chopped first. I would have played a lot better, but when the house hit 83 degrees - I got distracted by my BO. Great fun tonight - thanks all.
