Last night’s Twitter Poker Tour points event saw 93 players take to the virtual felt on Full Tilt Poker in search of more Monthly LeaderBoard points, and a shot at the Sunday $750k Guarantee.  In the end, it was astro_pup (@tracyjsnell) who defeated chiwawa (@deputysd) heads up to claim 1st place in the “Big November” Week 3 event, and earn the $216 seat.  The win was also worth 165.89 Tournament Leaderboard points, as astro_pup surged to the top of the Monthly Leaderboard with a total of 240.71 points, and place himself in the driver’s seat with just 1 event remaining.   Here’s the current top 10 in the leaderboard standings through 3 events:

On the TPT Live Show, we were joined by November Niner Matt Jarvis (@mattjarvispoker) to discuss his 8th place finish at the 2010 WSOP Main Event.  We chatted about the lead up to the Final Table, the success that he’s had since making the final table, and a whole host of other facts about Matt.

Later on the show we were joined by Bluff Magazines senior editor, Jess Welman (@jesswelman).  Jess is a member of the WPT Live Updates team and a regular on This Week in Poker, and we discussed the poker news of the week with her for the first hour of being on the show.  In the second hour, we were joined again by B.J. Nemeth (@bjnemeth) and continued the chat as only Jess and B.J. can do.

Next week will be the final points event for the month of November, and we’ll be awarding all of the Monthly Leaderboard prizes.  So make certain that you register in the final event to secure your chance at more than $3,000 in monthly giveways!
