Bran the Man!

Brandon does it again as he wins the biggest Sica Sands Casino tournament yet, 20 good players including seven new players!  Bran survived some early "all ins" as he was on the ropes for most of the first two hours. 

One of the biggest suprises was the play of newcomer Danny Jones, who took second place for 275 dingers.  His twin brother did fare as well as he came in 19th, even after starting almost an hour late!  Matt Bursic continued his strong play finishing third, and Vito improved his game taking fourth.  Another newcomer, Carl Zito, came in like a wild man, raising the stakes for all, as he took fifth.  Joe McGiveney immediately declared Carl, rookie of the year.  Another newcomer Charlie Brady started slow but hung tough finishing 7th.  Johnny, Teddy and Ronnie all made the final table. 

Some of the big name players struggled as they tried to figure out the style of the newcomers, as Joe, Brian, Frank, Quig, Joe Zito and Teddy all struggled.  The new players included the Jones twins, Danny (2) and Chris (19), Carl Zito (4), Tommy Daglisch (18), Charlie  (7) Brady, Simon Moule (15)Willie Rodriguez (taking over while Joe Grimaldi was out of town as last.)


Joe Zito and Quig thought they would be in every final three.  Young Jones had other ideas.

The stat sheet will be out when John and Brian get back from Vegas in late August.  Next game will be announced then.

This is not updated because i lost the sheet for week 10.  I have 11 and twelve and will update by sept 1.  if anyone remembers the order of finish for week 10 please email me at: jsica@nyc.rr.com  I remember Johnny was first, Joe Zito second, Quigney third, and then after that its anyone's guess.  How many did we have?  15, 16, 17?  Please help out.

Sal


Why is this man smiling?

In the biggest satellite tournament to that date, Sal came away with first place and $450.   As fifteen good players gathered, the stakes were raised to a record $1,500 dollars in prize money.  Many new players enjoyed their first tournament, especially Billy Gill, who came away with $150 for fourth place. 


Bran has the big stack, but he stresses as its about to dissappear.

Brandon Sica continued his strong play, taking second for $262, his third straight winning outing.  His brother Teddy also made the final four, so it was brothers against brothers-in-law, as Joe McGivney joined his brother-in-law Sal in the final four showdown. 


Brian sat out for the second straight game, but as the field catches up with him he may be forced to defend his top money lead.

Joe took third for $202.  Host John Sica broke even with $100 for fifth, and last weeks champ Steve was disappointed with sixth for $75.  Big Ted and newcomer Ronnie rounded out the money winners. 


Danny and Matt are anxious to come back strong next time.

Other new players were Brian O Hagan, and Dan and Matty Bursic.  Matty got off to a smoking start winning the first four hands and was the chip leader early, but got burned when his set of three nines, was overtaken by Salís three Jacks.  He played well but had the one unlucky hand.  Joe McGivney was obsessed with his soda not being knocked down, until he knocked it down.  Maybe next time he should switch to an amber colored beverage.

How bout this one Joe?

 


Ronnie brought some tasty wings form work.

 
Matty played well, but had some tough luck.
