G Rob Wins WWdN Tourney . . . News at Eleven!

G Rob won the WWdN Tournament tonight. He beat out Daddy in heads up play. Both guys have a really sick No Limit game and crushed the entire field of 118 players. Congrats goes out to both G Rob and Daddy. Great job guys!

I was eliminated in 90th place. Had A-A and K-K cracked! Ouch! Several other bloggers rounded out the top 20 very nicely. See below.

Joanne Wins!

Joanne even KO'd me after I told her not too several hours before the event. She wasn't listening. Next time . . . I must remember to send her a Card Squad memo. Congrats again Joanne! She took down WhoisSpain in heads up play.
