Fellow BRC Members
BRC LXXVIII was held at Russel Lea Banker’s Vault, and for the second time in a row, Developer and Punter were not able to attend. Leaving it to a 7 man game. Takings were lower than normal. The number of games appeared to have increased as there seemed less of a raucous and less distractions.!!!! In any case the game was in good spirits with good banter.
As per usual, Banker had his spread well laid out with a good range of snacks, fruit, desserts and wines.
First would like to wish The Rok a big happy birthday for today. Unfortunately for him, Rok was not able to come home for the win on the night. The honour went to Maverick and would you believe it, his first win since 2010.!!!! Well done to Maverick who was able to snatch victory from TC Jagger with 2 very good hands, a real no wild card straight flush and a better 5 of a kind. The win by Maverick helped him move up the table from Equal 2nd last to 5th place.
TC Jagger was able to buck the trend by winning the first hand and (shared) last hand and finish with a 2nd placing followed by The Rok and Sniper . The top 4 finished in the black and the next 3 in the Red.
So after 3 rounds. The gap at the top as increased with TC Jagger on top with 27.5 pts , followed by The Prof on 24 pts, Sniper on 23 points, The Rok 20 pts, Maverick on 19 points. At the rear Banker on 15 pts and BB on 13 points and Developer remaining on 8.5 pts.
Amazing since commence of the games BB has lost his overall 2nd place standing from an overall points since inception and now has dropped to 4th on 323 points. Both Sniper and The Rok have over taken him on 331.5 pts and 327 pts respectively. TC Jagger remains on top with 368.5 points?? Sniper and The Rok have steadily kept moving up the ranks as consistency being to pay off, but the catch the Jagger or will he continue to jag. Or will the Big Bluff finally shake the cobwebs and get of his slump?? Only time will tell.
Next friendly game has been set for the 18th August at Maverick’s hanger .
Look forward to the next game. I know you will all miss me.
