Former NCPT founding member and frequent guest, my close friend and business partner, Bruce Yablon, just finished in 2nd Place out of 230 people at Warren Buffet’s Net Jets Poker Tournament out in Vegas. In doing so, he just won a $100k donation from Net Jets to a charity of his choice. Congratulations Bruce on a tremendous showing. I think given your NCPT history, should consider on giving 20% of donation to a charity of NCPT choosing….thinking Gamblers or Squitter’s Anonymous.

Here is a picture of Bruce with Warren!! Just awesome.

NCPT12 – The Ben and Caroline Tournament – May 10th Results

Color from last night as written by Ben –

From what I recall, people were dropping like flies at table 1 and table 2 just kept sending more over. Mark and Stephano were the early chip leaders, with Mark’s early stack coming from knocking out a chipped-up Begs. All 3 guests made it to the final table. Play tightened up on the bubble considerably until Stephano knocked out Perlmutter. 4 handed William and Stephano had most of the chips, and got into a confrontation William won knocking out Stephano in 4th. William had most of the chips 3-handed, limped on the button, Mark completed the small blind and I shoved A3s with about 5 big blinds. William folded and Mark turned over a slow played KK to take me out in 3rd. Mark chipped away slowly at William until they were almost even. With William having Mark slightly covered, they got it in with Mark’s two pair vs William’s second pair and William was crippled. I don’t know what the final hand was but Mark shoved A high and William called with a weaker hand  – Mark held for the win.

Congrads to Mark on his second win. I will update standings as soon as I can, but going into final game there is definitely a horse race for regular season champ between a number of us. Our final game will be on June 7th…until then, hit em straight.

NCPT12 – Tebowmania vs. Zinnsanity – April 12th Game – Results

Sorry for the late email everyone…still licking wounds from last night and haven’t found my sense of humor yet. I left before things finished up, but here is Larry’s synopsis:

Greg and I got heads up at 2:00 am even at 70k and blinds of 1250/2500 so we were taking forever so the Trump guys kicked us out at 2:45 because they wanted to go home. So we chopped the $ equal and both of us agreed to split 1st and 2nd place points equally. The guest Dave in 3rd and kadlec 4th.

I believe Mr.Taylor came in 5th with Nancy on the bubble. If we get that many again, will probably have to adjust blind schedule so it doesn’t get too late again.

Action was robust at cash game. Big hands, lot of chips moving around. When I left, two law school students were up big. Hopefully they left with most of that coin.

Next game isn’t till May 9th. Will update web page as soon as I can. Don’t forget the IRS and I know some of you will voluntarily follow Buffet rule.
