WCOOP Event #9 Results
I had this sinking feeling that I'd seen a couple of the blokes before. Sure enough, WCOOP Event #9's final table featured two people who had already made WCOOP final tables this year. Lenny and Ziggy47 were the first two players to make repeat WCOOP final table performance in 2005.
Seven-card stud is just a different game. It takes a different skill, a different mindset, and a different temperment. Even after the final two players made a deal to split the money and leave $10,000 and WCOOP bracelet to play for, the blinds stopped moving and so did the game. Finally, after they begged for so long, Lee Jones stepped in and allowed the players to chop the remaining money.
Sometimes, things happen. Remarkably enough, there are even TDA rules to handle those situations. TDA Rule 31 states "Floor people are to consider the best interest of the game and fairness as the top priority in the decision-making process. Unusual circumstances can, on occasion, dictate that the technical interpretation of the rules be ignored in the interest of fairness. The floor person's decision is final."
Here are your final table results. A report will be out later on Tuesday.
