Summary (Qualifying rounds)
Week 1: Bakoy ships 3rd in the Americas Group, great start!
Week 2: PokerStrategy own the Oceanic Group with AussieIan taking down the win. EagleStar88 2nd in the U.K. tournament.
Week 3: Our guys tighten their grip on the Antipidean league with all 3 in contention. Waiboy loses to a frenchman (que?) but secures 2nd. A great performance also by DarkNeo was cut short by a sick beat on the points bubble.
Week 4: feraldave 6th down under, DarkNeo82 4th up over (see what I did there ). wp guys. All PokerStrategists currently in a qualifying spot, get in!!
Week 5: Gutsy, battling display from feraldave to secure 6th for 2nd week running. So unfortunate to run into rockets
EagleStar88 final tables but throws away an excellent chance of good points by being such a donkey, whilst DarkNeo82 just can't seem to win a flip for love or money
Week 6: Great 2nd place from the "Wai" once again, all 3x contenders clinging mid-table to each other like mid-table clingy things. bakoy MIA pressumed retired from challenge. EagleStar88 3rd in UK tourney, but event very much owned by darkneo again (5th), superb run and great result despite the bad luck at the end.
Week 7: Mr consistent Waiboy 5th in the Oceanic , Brits bust early
Week 8: Great final tables for Waiboy, feraldave & Darkneo again this week.
Week 9: 5th again for the Wai, racking up excellent points with feraldave 6th/7th (t.b.c.). The boy Bart managed to ride his luck and win the UK tourney.
Week 10: An unlucky, but great 3rd for Aussie Ian, a self imposed dressing down for Anglais EagleStar88
Week 11: AusIan 6th in the first of the double-pointers. Darkneo just missed out on points in 12th despite not being available & sitting out all game.
Week 12: (21st Mar) - Sorry not had time to update
Good luck everyone, PokerStrategy ftw
