FTR Gauntlet VII Game 2 Summary – NLH 6Max


Game 2 of the Gauntlet VII was much anticipated. This was mainly due to the fact that is was the first ever shorthanded tournament in game289  the history of the Gauntlet! I predicted game 2 to be a 6-Max, action filled, donkfest; and boy was I right. If you are unsure what the Gauntlet is, check out the end of this article for information on how to register. You can play against FTR’s biggest players, for free!

Before we get into the action, let’s have a look at the current leaderboard. There is only 1 week played so far, so it isn’t anything too exciting:

FTR Name – GP – Points

nutsinho – 1 – 210.44

givememyleg – 1 – 148.80

drmcboy – 1 – 121.50

ProZachNation – 1 – 105.22

spin_md – 1 – 94.11

arkana – 1 – 85.91

badgers – 1 – 79.54

Keilah – 1 – 74.40

d0zer – 1 – 70.15

Jack Sawyer – 1 – 66.55

If you read last weeks summary, or donked around in the action, you already knew nutsinho (nuts in ho, not nut seen ho – I don’t care what he says) took down game 1, defeating givememyleg heads up. Let’s see if he could defend his current 1st place position in game 2!

For those that haven’t seen the thread, there is also a $50 sidebet on who does best this Gauntlet. So far there are 8 people in (givememyleg, drmcboy, wildbob, shifubowa, kmind, bigspenda, warpe and spinswell). If you haven’t played a Gauntlet game yet, there’s still 30 games remaining, which is more than enough to get in!

It is clear that 6Max is a complete different breed than full ring, because everyone came out swinging. In total, 30 people registered which was 10 less than game 1 on Sunday but still had a very nice turnout. FTR vet’s that were making their season 7 debut included bigspenda73, swiggidy, Warpe, pocketfours, Galapogos, bode, GatorJH, kmind, Santa Cruz, redzilla and the man who makes it all possible, Xianti. There was another $10 prize this week if your AA was cracked, but sadly no bounty.

Action started with 6 tables, and there was an obscene amount of 3bets within the first few hands. Early on table 2, givememyleg and Galapogos (PokerStars I_Lie_2_U) battled it out, with Gala getting the upper hand:
