The only Razz event on the Twitter Poker Tour Championship Series on Full Tilt Poker is in the books, as event #5 drew a field of 38 players as host Linda Johnson (@FirstLadyPoker) brought some players with her.  The $5 buy in event was eventually won by micvanbob who gathered up all of the chips slowly and steadily to outlast the field.

Johnson (playing as CPCruise) remained in the chat box to wish everyone luck at the final table, and stayed through the heads up play as well.  She would exit the event in 13th place after getting short stacked, and getting it in during a 3 way pot that she was outdrawn in.  Many thanks to Linda for hosting the event and engaging everyone in the chat box throughout the duration of the event.

TPT Live Show hosts cprpoker (@cprpoker) and fleapid (@coolwhipflea) finished in 7th and 6th places respectively to bubble the event, and send the remaining 5 players into the cash and earning crucial points for the TPTCS Player of The Series Leaderboard.  With a 6th place finish, this was fleapid’s 2nd consecutive bubble performance in TPTCS events.

Short stacked, BAABU1 earned his first TPTCS cash, as he was eliminated in 5th place, and after having sat out and still surviving 5 all in situations, sos41 was finally eliminated in 4th place.  Finally the last short stack, SNutizzle found the rail in 3rd and snooperjuke and micvanbob, the two big stacks began a heads up duel that lasted just short of 1 hour.  After several swings back and forth, micvanbob would emerge with all of the chips and claim the next spot in the TPTCS Tournament of Champions Event.  Here’s how the final five paid out:

  1. micvanbob – $76.00
  2. snooperjuke – $47.50
  3. SNutizzle – $30.40
  4. sos41 – $20.90
  5. BAABU1 – $15.20

The win also gave micvanbob 106.04 leaderboard points to move him into second place on the Player of the Series Leaderboard, where LessonsRXtra (@MarieLizette) maintained her lead after her Event #3 victory.

Thursday Night will be Event #6, a $5+1 No Limit Hold’em event hosted by Full Tilt Poker Red Pro David Bradley at 9pm EST.  Also, joining us on the TPT Live Show will be Tim West (@TheTMay) to talk about his recent win at the Wynn Poker Classic in a long heads up duel with Annette Obrestad (@Annette_15), and his  runner-up performance in the $10k World Series of Poker Circuit Regional Championship to Ali Eslami (@indigoAE).  Make sure to join us for the TPTCS Event #6 and the TPT Live Show.

Congratulations again to Event #5 winner, micvanbob!
