The Professor wins a great game.  Looks to be out early when half his chip stack is passed to Fingers on the river.  Sits on his stack for much of the game before doubling up time and time again, announcing 'I am defingered and unfoxed'.  A strong win.

The Fox will not be bullied.  Her game has changed in recent weeks and she's added strength to slyness.  Particularly a thorn in the side of Fingers, she looks assured till the showdown.  Folds too many hands and must realise the value of hands goes up in the head to head.

Fingers is experiencing chip shock.  He is far too attached to the colour blue and this may be affecting his gambling.  Way too loose in the play, gambling big pre-flop and ending up in too many 50 50 hands.  The poker gods desert him and he's out.

Real Deal didn't lose a colour red for a good hour and built up a sweet chip lead.  Goes crazy on a three handed river card and calls with two pairs.  Flush draws send him crashing and he never recovers.  Left to deal he lets appointed people collect up the chips ('I am the organ grinder, not a chip monkey').

The DOG has had a VERY stressful day at work and seems content to drink heavily and chill.  Out first but smiling still despite her poor (distracted?) performance.  The poker experience helps her unwind, who says poker isn't gor for your health... poker therapy!!
