May Game Wrap-Up

The May game of 2021 is now in the books. Hosted by the Hord’s we had a cozy little 1 table game with 11 people. Smoked Buffalo wings at the break and lots of good conversation.

Although Chris did good at the first game he couldn’t hang on for more than being the first one out. Hey somebody’s gotta do it. Then came our good man Don, he was second out. Mind you this is hours after we started. Just because someone is first or second out doesn’t mean they didn’t play a good competitive game. Don was chipping up well but obviously lost it all going all in with someone else. Speaking of which, Forrest chipped up big time but then lost it all in a couple of big hands. The second one was brutal! Forrest had a King high flush but then Jody flipped over the ace. That was it for Forrest! 3rd out. Phil was playing hard to protect his position but left the game at 4th out. It was about this time that people were dropping like flies about two at a time and before we knew it we were down to 4 and nobody wants to be the bubble breaker. Congratulations Jody! Someone had to do it. Now, much to our disbelief the two hosts of the night were sitting at the table with Lori who was not sitting on a very big pile of chips. One hand later Wendy gobbled up those chips. Now it’s just Tony & Wendy. Heads up! It only took one hand. Tony had pocket 3’s and Wendy of course had pocket Queens. That gave Wendy her first win! She’s placed before but not like this. Congratulations Wendy! Stan was the only other host who won the game they hosted. In this case both hosts won! That’s a rarity! The Hord’s (most of them) are not complaining!

Yes, it was another successful game of the RPC. Going 5 years strong now!

The next game does not have a host yet. We lost some of our good hosts over the years. Who wants to do it for June?

April game wrap-up

RPC had a great game at Veronicas last night. We started with 14 players at 2 tables and played 20 minute blinds with 2 friendly’s to get us done by 11:30. Veronica was an awesome host as usual. Great food and too many cup cakes!

You could tell that everyone was playing their best game. It was over 2 hours when the first player finally dropped and it was a player with some points. That is always encouraging to players trying to catch up in points. By the time we got down to 4 players it was around 11pm. Wendy was the bubble breaker. She tried hard and played a solid game. Phil, who hasn’t played since January came back with a vengeance and took 1st place. Josh finished strong in 2nd and Forrest took home a nice purse for 3rd place.

The grand total in the pot so far for the 2021 champ is $390. The next game is at Tony & Wendy’s on May 22nd.

Here are your 2021 RPC points leaders.

March Game at Stans

We had another great game in March at Stans home. We just barely had enough players to make 2 tables but we did it. Everyone played well and somewhat conservative. I think it was 10:30 before the first player went out. Sorry Lori. 🙂

As you can see we have a whole new leader board after last night. Things can change a lot in the beginning of the year. Nate pulled it out last night and took 1st place! I think we can all agree that he was due. That gave him just enough to tie Josh for the lead in points. Josh didn’t place last night but did acquire enough points to hold onto first with Nate! Veronica played her usual consistent game and although didn’t place last night she’s holding 2nd place in points all to herself. Forrest finished strong last night with 2nd place and ended up with enough points to share 3rd in points with Rich who only needed 2 games to have enough points to not only take home some money last night but land on the leader board with Forrest. Congratulations to these players and everyone else who is fighting and clawing to make the cut.

Thank you Stan for opening up your home to the RPC. Much appreciated!

The next game is at Tony and Wendy’s! Polish up your skills, read your books, watch those videos or even pay for some training but what ever you do, don’t miss the next RPC game!

October Game

Don’t you hate it when a new guy takes first place? Lol, not really. It couldn’t have happened to a nicer guy. Welcome to the club Jim!

It was a great game at the Hord house on Saturday night. These are your top players right here. Jim took first. Jody took 2nd. Josh took 3rd. Congratulations to these guys for sure! Take a look at the Stats to see where everyone stands.

Who was the bubble breaker? It’s a bitter sweet title. You get some points but no cash. Congratulations Nate! Someone had to take one for the team.

The next game is down at Nates on the 21st. It’s always a good time at Nates!

The website is back up and running! Everyone has a login now but it’s really not needed yet. The schedule page is the only one that requires a password to see. It’s the same password as we all had before. If you need it then shoot Tony a text. More to come! Http://

Rock on Players!
