We had 32 players in our very first WPBT tournament.

151 last night. Amazing.

And the reign of dominance by the bloggers finally ended, with a reader, on_thg, taking it to the hoop. The bloggers won again! on_thg's blog is here. Congratulations! And a big thank you to everyone who played, I hope everyone had as much fun as I did.

Well, considering I was bad beat out into 129th (by Tapin, who wins a Party Poker jacket), I didn't have THAT much fun. Actually, that's not true. I really enjoyed watching the festivities from the rail, rooting for the bloggers.

In case you missed the hand of the tournament, I'll post a hand history for perhaps the first time ever. But taking The Hammer allin versus AA and KK allows for rules to be broken.

The Power of The Hammer, as wielded by Dr Pauly.
