Game Highlights
The Summer Season 2009 proved unique in a number of ways. It was the first season in this league's history that a tie occurred in the top six. Additionally, Brian Hengstler, who finished the season in the 6th place, forfeited his seat at the final table, after accepting a job offer in Connecticut and moving the week before the final game was played out. This forfeiture moved two players to the sixth place, each tie with only one first place win over the length of the season! Three time bracelet winner Scott Lazarek and newbie to the final felt, Dave Coin, squeezed into the 6th place positions, both hoping that their luck would continue. In 5th place, Dan "the draw catcher" Pollock lands it after making over $300.00 in the season. Sherri White (aka Ma Poker) starts off the season with two consecutive second place wins; enough to land her in the 4th place chair; White, like Pollock, looking for her first bracelet. Two time bracelet winner Monica Froman comes from no where blasting through the last half of the season, winning a well deserved 3rd place seat after making over $600.00. Tim Entwistle, also jingling two bracelets from his wrist, can't hold on to that first place position after Ryan Yu hits a first place win in game 10 of 10, rising to the top at the finish line. Yu has yet to win a bracelet, however his game has been consistently explosive and his turn at the gold is said to be long overdue.

Froman is faced with a decision early on. Holding two pair, she is put all in by Lazarek for a lot of chips after a possible flush appears on the board. An amazing call reveals Lazarek only holds top pair. Lazarek is forced out of the tournament and Froman strikes it rich. Shortly after 8pm, White is holding pocket tens, an over pair to the flop, and is put all in by Dave Coin. White is forced to make a decision as Yu calls the clock. White makes the call and is disgusted when she see's that Coin is holding pocket jacks. Now crippled, White takes one more shot for what pennies she has left but is eliminated. The game plays on for two and a half hours before another casualty. Coin's two pair doesn't hold up against Froman's two pair and Coin is eliminated. Now on a search and destroy mission, Froman calls Yu's "all in" with an ace and hits another, torching Yu's pocket sevens and firing him out of the match. Entwistle moves against Coin, hoping to double up, however Coin pairs a jack and eliminates Tim. Only two players left, Pollock and Froman. The match would last another forty three minutes. Froman, now in full disguise, earns the nickname "the stranger" after sporting a dark pair of sunglasses and a sort of fishing hat near the end of the tournament. You wouldn't recognize the brunette if you walked right past her. Using her new fashion statement and the key chain photograph of her two sons, Froman pops a pair of tens. Not quite adjusted to Froman's new cloaking device, Pollock pushes after the flop reveals that he paired his nine. "The Stranger" insta-calls and beneath her crafty costume, she could smell victory in the breeze created by the turn and river cards snapping down on the table. The tens hold up and Monica Froman wins her third bracelet!
