      Brief rules:

      - Status upgrade is not for a calendar month, but for a month since the day it was assigned (e.g. 12th of November - 12th of December)
      - Platinum is the highest status a person can get an upgrade to
      - The winner should provide us with his PokerStrategy nickname

      Lemon thinks he's such a shark, but he forgot to put up gut-equity and the One Time. Either that or he just doesnt want to reveal the real advanced secrets of the river ninjas.

      UNREAL! HISTORY IN THE MAKING!
      MyFloXyBabY won week1 by getting a tiny pity half point after losing by just 0.2% In one equity guessing round when he was on no scores at that point!
      And Tawd1888 clenched the 2nd place spot after a nail biting tie breaker with Maldwin2

      The standings after week 1 are:

      MyFloXyBabY 3points
      Tawd1888 2points
      Maldwin2 1Point

      It's still not too late to compete for free status upgrades, join us next week and put your name on the board

      The Championship report
      The battle started slowly, but was fierce indeed
      WEEK1
      Started slowly for that week's winner, MyFloXyBabY who couldn't get anywhere near correct guesses.
      and when he finally did, he was beat by 0.2% - talk about a bad beat! But he earned himself a half a point out of pity. Nobody thought it'd matter, he had no points and was 2 behind?

      Guess what, it did, and that teensy half point meant he took the whole week one down.
      To Tawd1888's despair.

      WEEK2
      The week of tiebreakers!
      Incredibly close round, where a horde of competitors got themselves on the board
      And we had to have a tiebreaker for all the scored places! Easymode19 came out of them unscathed and took this week down. But Tawd1888 showed is consistency, and sailed to another second place that put him to the top of the leaderboard

      WEEK3
      This week was all in the command of previous competitors
      schooltripper clenched the 4th place, but because 3rd one belonged to yours truly, the coach, he got himself on the board.
      The winner this week was a massive comeback of the Week1 champion, MyFloXyBabY who showed us once again his equity guessing skills, and this time won without needing any pity points to do so.

      And who came second? You guessed it, it was none other than Tawd1888 , the consistent master of the second place finish

      THE TIEBREAKER
      His consistency netted tawd 6 points, and he tied MyFloXyBabY for the lead and the inevitable tiebreaker had to take place.
      The Twitch Chat stadium was very much doubting Tawd1888, as he felt like a tennis n1 that never won a grand slam - nice consistency, but does he have what it takes to seal the deal and become champion?

      That question was quickly answered when MyFloXyBabY wanted to defy karma and guessed 0.1% more than Tawd, trying to piggyback on his equity estimate. That was a bad move, as not only he lost this round, but Karma struck and made him lose the very next one by 0.3% equity guess, making our most consistent hero Tawd1888 the champion of the inaugural POKERSTRATEGY EQUITY GUESSING CHAMPIONSHIP


      FINAL RESULTS

      1st Tawd1888 – 6 POINTS!
      - WON IN TIEBREAKER BO5 3:0
      -status upgrade +2
      And personal visit from coach Lemon who happens to go on holiday to his hometown.
