The Queen For A Day has come and gone. Well, maybe not gone, just nudged out of first place by a rebounding Bob Stoddard who has regained his number one slot. Who will it be in two weeks?
A formal complaint has been filed by the 'management team' of the TOC poker group. At Tables one, two and three, the pit bosses, who work so hard for your enjoyment were totally cut out of the winners' circles today....and, no one left them a tip for their efforts.
Other than that, 18 players showed up today and all three tables were up and running. At Table One, Bob Stoddard returned to the winner's circle with a nice day's work. Billy Evans, who joined the table late after being drafted from Table Three to even out the number of players, finished a strong second. Maggie (Big Hand) Campbell continued her second quarter run of unusually big hands. Today, she held four 2's and also 4 Jacks. Unless someone can come up with a 9 high straight flush or higher at the next game,, Big Hand will take the second quarter best hand award.
At Table Two, it looked like at one point that Bob Lohr would be winning all of the chips at the table, but he cooled off in the last hour as Bobbi Smith and Bill Crawford battled it out for second place. Bill won second place with a late big full house, beating out two other players with boats. Bobbi Smith had a roller coaster of an afternoon and held the hand of the day at the table -- four Jacks.
At Table Three, Judy Landrum let Joe come back and play with us and he fought hard but couldn't quite make it into the winner's circle. Charlie Homann coasted to a victory. He's been on a tear recently, now in 4th place on the TOC leader board and moving up quickly.
Sylvia Howland finished a strong second, just $8 ahead of the Queen for a Day -- Delsie Barnes. The good news at the table, though, was that Delsie's court jester turned in one of her best performances of the year and climbed out of the cellar. Watch out for Dale Henslee, she's moving up quickly.
See you in two weeks. Maggie Campbell will walk with $10 on the 26th unless someone comes up with a higher straight flush! Hope to see you then.
