Second game of the night is game of champions, each player having tasted glory. Antes doubled every 15-20 minutes to limit game time, creating a cauldron of gambling.
Fingers wins the pot with an outrageous run of high value hands. He couldn't lose and claims the Joker scalps, now needs to get his soul back from the devil...
Fingers is on fire. Turns in straight after straight, full houses and even a A-5 straight diamond flush. Is vocal in hand after hand, talking up his cards and playing mind games. Tactic works a treat as all fall foul to Mr Lucky. Overstays his welcome until 5.00am reliving the game over.. and over.. and over again!
Grinder wanted to go home after game one but with the prospect of ranking points, he sacrifices his Saturday for the cause (family portraits booked 9.00am). Worth the effort as he comes second again! More matron of honour than bridesmaid.
The Professor continues his form and crashed out early again. Tries to talk up a game of top trumps instead, has it really come to this for the Professor? Surely not a contender anymore. Mainly thanks to his wife the DOG, who beats his hands every time... true love.
The DOG has fleas. Every now and then she gets an itch and blows out big style. Out first in the game of champions but dignity intact. Every DOG has it's day, our DOG has more than most.
