APAT Member Profiles / Hi
« Last post by janc on April 27, 2022, 13:47:37 PM »
Hi all (if anyone uses this site now)
I have been away from APAT and poker in general for awhile, but have decided to start playing again.
So where do you all play now?

What makes a great team? Jo, Stephen and Jo had five players in common, Zinno, Yu, Negreanu, Hellmuth and Deeb, all of whom scored highly, so the competition revolved around their other selections.

Jo and Stephen also shared Glaser, while Stephen and Jo had Monnette in common. Jo has been a big fan of Shack-Harris and Vitch, selecting them every year, always picking up points that no-one else has. She combined them with Racener and Zack to complete a winning team where the lowest scorer added 25 points.

Chidwick brought plenty of points for Stephen, but Volpe and Eveslage let him down a bit, particularly Eveslage who only scored another 4 points after being substituted in after 10 events.

Jo was some way behind the big two, her other players being Imsirovic (Jr), Owen, Johnson and Zhu, of whom only Johnson justified his place.

Jo Harris is our Champion. She led the field for a long time, and managed to hold on despite a strong challenge from Stephen Jennison near the end. Well done too to Jo Harris, who finished third.

Nice for Kolev to win the final event but what a performance by Uri Reichenstein to come 2nd of 531, on top of 4th of 307 in #76 and 3rd of 496 in #80. Three top-four results in a week, but what a shame he didn't get a win. Still, the $575k winnings, plus another $100k from some of the other tournaments, should help him to get over it.

Not many points here for our selectors, so who has won?

Event #87 was a fashion bonanza, demonstrating once again how poker players' avant-garde styles lead the world when it comes to in-vogue clothing.

Event 87: $100,000 High Roller No Limit Hold'em
Winner          Michael Addamo
Runners          64
Paid          10
Final Table          9

Player          Position          Points         
Michael Addamo          1          25         
Sam Soverel          3          15         
Sean Perry          4          12         
Mikita Badziakouski          8          4         

Selector    Points                  
Aneurin    25                  
Barrie 2    25                  
Derek    25                  
John 1    25                  
Michael    25                  
Nic    25                  
Stu    25                  
Tom    25                  
Richard    15                  
Simon A    15                  
Simon L    12                  
Barrie 1    4                  

Addamo's extraordinary playing style continues to pay off. He continually provokes huge pots, even when he doesn't have hands. His high-risk play often leads to him having unbelievable stacks that are multiples of everyone else. It happened earlier in the Series and it happened again here. It is dependent on him winning pots when he is called and, not to put too fine a point on it, he sucked out something rotten time after time in this tournament. Still, his style has resulted in him winning numerous high rollers and four bracelets, two of them this year. There were points here for lots of our selectors, including 4 for Barrie with Badziwhatsit, but none for our leaders, so the field closes up.

Event 86: $1,000 Super Turbo No Limit Hold'em
Winner          Michael McCauley
Runners          1025
Paid          153
Final Table          9

Player          Position          Points

Rob    1                  
Stephen 2    1                  
Stu    1                  

That's Played 1, Won 1 for McCauley, who was playing his first ever WSOP event.

It's Jo2 and Stephen1 who are the contenders, and they scored the same points in this, so no change at the top. Jo needs to pick up at least a point or two in the final two tournaments.

Negreanu again! If he had done this sooner, he would have been a contender for POY.

Badziakouski had a 5th place earlier, but this is better, though he claims that he's not really bothered about the bracelet - he just wants to win HRs. Hmmmm, I always doubt people who claim things like this.  Ren Lin had a 3rd place earlier, and now a 2nd. The bracelet will have to wait.

Stephen's result here moves him ahead of Jo by ONE POINT.
