Week 7 Results

13 brave players showed up to try their hands at Badugi, many for the first time. Everyone caught on pretty quickly, and it appeared that a good time was had by all. HiRoller88 brought a decent points lead into the tourney, and a fourth place finish was more than enough to maintain that lead and take down the $215 Sunday Millions ticket. Congratulations! That is now the fourth Sunday Millions ticket we've been able to give away in the league - thanks to PokerStars for their ongoing support of the league!

COLUMBIADC came in third, and rusdog13 was second. TeamGetBig continued the trend this season of taking down both the bounty and the tournament. He also became the season's first 2-game winner. Nice job!

The results:

The updated Top 8 (lowest score for the season dropped):

HiRoller88(1) 113.59
TeamGetBig(2) 92.33
potnets 84.43
ki steelers 79.29
ScottyBallin(1) 78.20
goateedude 74.56
TwoDuxx2(1) 74.24

Next week's format will be the ever-popular 8-game, with a bounty on TeamGetBig. Also, as the season heads into its last few tourneys keep an eye on the points - the Top 8 at the end of the season play in the Championship Tournament to determine the league champion.
