TEN players! Count them! TEN! Yet only ONE player managed to earn Grass Roots Points today! CONGRATULATIONS to ROY BUMGARNER! FIRST PLACE!
STEVE WENNSTROM went home happy, even though he was denied Grass Roots Points. Steve not only finished in SECOND PLACE...he also held a Raggedy Ann (6-7-8-A-A) and cleaned out the RAGGEDY JULIA pot!
Also in the money today was DEREK SMITH. Despite getting left in the stink hole in his first game (against me) and getting skunked by Cindy Grenville, he ended the day just 30 spread points behind Steve, and finished in THIRD PLACE! He also scored the first 5-CARD FLUSH (of which there were several today) and cleaned out the DIRECTOR'S AWARD. Derek will have the honor of deciding on the next specialty hand for the Director's Award.
Not one single 24-hand was scored today, so THE CHICKEN pot will be worth $10 next week.
One interesting statistical observation: Both JULIA BICK and CINDY GRENVILLE ended the day with ZERO net spread points.
