Today, The Angels and The Lunatics got together on Poker stars for a good ol' fashioned Clan Battle. Eighteen players took to the felts, with a slight numerical advantage to The Angels.
The winged-ones settled in to a comfortable groove in the first hour, holding the top seven spots in the chip count for a spell. But that would not last. Soon, Angels seemed to be falling left and right. Matante GiGi was the first out, followed by Fabolous1, and then Sanny, all before a single Loonie was eliminated.
The first Lunatic out would be mikeymack15, and then XHOTSHOTX on his heels. Some balance seemed to be restored, but the next four eliminations taking us to the final table would be all Angels, as one by one we lost GlbrtGrape, AKstickybuds, Lil MS Pushy, and BigWord.
That brought us to the final table, just three Angels to battle against six Lunatics for the points and the title. But when chipbully got his chips in with the best hand he'd seen in an hour, he found himself on the rail in ninth place. That elimination made it mathematically impossible for the Angels to win the match.
Tami and I fought on bravely, vastly outnumbered and under chipped :) Next to the rail would be ksuhart, taking 8th place. I soon found myself in a race for my life, as I shoved AJ of hearts and faced a call by pocket sevens. The sevens would hold, and seventh would be my finish position.
nobby would follow me out in sixth, with hitides on his heels in fifth, before Tami had to make an all-in call with pocket queens. Facing a race against AK, her run was finished as not one, but two Kings hit the board, eliminating her in 4th place.
Secure of the top three spots, 23--418, dmilkman and tohu would settle it amongst themselves, finishing in that order, with tohubahovu taking the win!
I must say, even in defeat we enjoyed this game immensely. The Lunatics are a class act for sure, and know how to have a good time at the tables. We hope to do this again soon. Perhaps we can get to complete a five-game series, with a mixture of games, as time allows.
We, The Angels, offer our sincerest Congratulations to The Lunatics!!!!
