The Winter Season 06/07 was without a doubt, dominated by the Paura's, Bob and Maryann. Both husband and wife, new to the tables this Season, reeked havick on the rest of the players, which earned Bob the new, unofficial, record for the most money won by any one player in a single season before the final (Championship) game. Both Bob and Maryann were joined by bracelet winners Tim Entwistle (Winter 05/06 Champ) and Scott Lazarek (Spring Season 06 Champ). Also among the top money makers, Jim Entwistle, who has qualified for four Championship matches out of six, and Rick Quaranto (Master P), the first of the "Summer Guys" to make a Championship Tournament. The six begin to battle with "General Paura" at the front line with 750 missles aimed at his five targets.

The time is 7:05pm and Maryann Pauara is delt pocket aces. She is called by Lazarek with a pair of eights in the hole. Amazingly, two eights fall on the flop but Maryann puts her faith in the aces and calls Lazarek's all-in. Maryann finishes in the sixth place, losing to four of a kind - eights. Chips are passed around the table until 10:40pm after Rick Quaranto is beat out of a huge pile of chips and is forced all in with 5/9 offsuit against Lazarek's big king. Lazarek hits a king high flush sending Quaranto home in 5th place. Things get moving again at 11:02pm. Jim Entwistle makes a play with Ace/8 and is all in against Tim Entwistle who calls after peering down at a pair of kings in the hole. Jim hits an ace on the river and eliminates the fourth place finisher. It's 11:47pm and Lazarek has been pushing. He is all in with a king and is called by Jim Entwistle who holds an ace. The ace holds up and Lazarek is eliminated. Heads up now, Jim Entwistle and Bob Paura sweat it out for the next 12 minutes. On the big blind, Entwistle, who is approximately 2:1 in chips over Paura, folds a 300 chip blind to an ace that Paura flashes into the muck. The very next hand, Entwistle calls the blind on the button with king/queen offsuit. Paura moves all in with ace/4. Tough to lay it down, Entwistle calls the all-in. Paura catches another ace and the chips move to Paura. Entwistle is all in the next hand with only 75 chips over the big blind. Paura is delt another ace and calls Entwistle, who is holding 5/6 offsuit. At 11:59pm, a six comes off the board making Entwistle a pair of sixes with a 5 kicker and Paura a pair of sixes with an ace kicker. Puara wins the Winter Season 2006/2007 Championship Match.
