MATH Recap, and All Hail the Fucking King

54 more runners in Mondays at the Hoy last night on full tilt, and yet the results were shockingly similar to the past several blogger tournaments. The same guys seemed to get lucky again and again, the same guys seemed to be stuck playing 75s and A8s as their only good cards of the night, and in the end, Bayne took the thing down again. Yep. That's right. The same Bayne who won the last Riverchasers tournament last Thursday. The same Bayne who won the last Mookie on Wednesday. The same Bayne who has already sealed the deal on the BBT title and then some. The same Bayne who is now atop the MATH 2007 moneyboard. Bayne Bayne Bayne Bayne Bayne blech.

Cashing in 6th place for $77.76 in I believe his first ever MATH tournament is maf212. Maf, if you have a blog please let me know in the comments and I will link you up, otherwise thanks for playing and we hope to see you next week when the albatross known as the BBT scoring system will finally be lifted from around everyone's necks for the regular blogger tournaments.

Iggy finished the MATH in 5th place this week, winning $103.68 more for his efforts, with a little help from me as I called his 18th pocket Kings of the night (or was it his 19th?) with my lowly 75s to jump him into the top 10 with about 20 players remaining in the event. Iggy is making a strong push for 2nd place on the BBT leaderboard with his performance last night, a race that is really going to come down to the wire and culminate with this coming Sunday night's Blogger Big Game hosted by this donkey.

In 4th place this Monday was brdweb, winner of this year's Blogger Bracelet Race, who won $142.56 for his first MATH cash of the BBT. I don't recall how brd went out last night, but it's a safe bet that it was to Bayne, maybe when his AT ran into Bayne's pocket Jacks allin preflop.

Columbo came up with yet another strong MATH performance last night to add to his already top 10 moneyboard position with another third place finish, scoring him $194.90 cash in the process. Again I don't recall how he was eliminated other than to say this one I know was Bayne's doing since Bayne went into heads-up play with leftylu with about a 6-to-1 chip advantage, probably as a result of a sick river suckout or something like that which I know there were a lot of over the final two tables. Nice job to Columbo who has quietly really ripped shit up in the Hoy over the past few months.

Finishing in second place this week was non-blogger leftylu, who captured $295.12 for his performance and who can hardly feel bad about failing to overcome the undisputed King of the BBT. lefty played a conservative game at the final table, basically lying in wait while his opponents one by one took their shots at Bayne and lost in various ways, with the only downside of this approach being that once heads-up play started, as I mentioned above Bayne had a huge chip lead and was able to wait for a big flop for him to make his move.

And winning the Hoy this week again, along with the $492.48 in cash for first prize, was Bayne Bayne Bayne Bayne Bayne more of the same, who took out leftylu when his 43o managed to flop trips which is always nice. This time around Bayne bided his time early, taking the chip lead somewhere around the beginning of the final table which he only briefly relinquished before doing what he does best and crushing the rest of the field. Wow is all I have to say about what Bayne has done to the rest of the bloggers over the past few months, and keep in this mind this is without a doubt the first and only time that the same player will hold the Mookie, Riverchasers and MATH title all at the same time. Just. Wow.

63. Rake Feeder $53

So it was another interesting week for the MATH moneyboard, as three of this week's 6 cashers were first-time entrants onto the moneyboard, and the other three added to already top 10 positions as they have really stuck it to the other players in this tournament so far during 2007. And again kudos to Bayne Bayne Bayne Bayne Bayne who has taken over the top spot in a big fat huge way with his nearly $500 cash tonight to power way over $1000 won for the year as the first grand winner for 2007 in the MATH. Way to go Bayne.

Gotta run for today, sorry this post is up so late. I'll be back with a proper post on Wednesday for sure.

It's borderline disgusting at this point.

A big F U goes out to smokkee for ruining my big comeback as I chipped up from 16 whole chips to 1300 when my 9s ran into his donkeriffic Aces. What a lucksac.

I'd have to say that would be equal to the Grand Slam in golf. Holding all three titles at the same time... now that is something that only Bobby Jones has done... of course Tiger holds the Tiger slam. I guess this could be called the Bayne Slam. If he wins the next three then who knows what we will do...
