Normaniter Takes Down PKL Series 1 in Nailbiting Finish!
Posted by : ikelos on Wednesday, February 01, 2012 permalink
Series 1 of the inaugural Pokerkaki League wrapped up with a bang last night, and it turned out to be - for many a kaki - an anxious, heart-thumping dash to the finish line. The top few spots were far from being a certainty, while a dozens of other kakis were either chasing or solidifying their spots in the Grand Prize Freeroll, which awards the coveted Macau Poker Cup Package.
Normaniter, who began the day in 4th spot, knew he needed a big, big showing on the final day of competition if he was to be in the reckoning. With leader dunkel8888 also putting in a strong showing, the rail birds calculated that Normaniter would need to win 1 tourney and finish at least 2nd in the other to stand any chance of displacing dunkel8888. In other words, he pretty much needed to move mountain and earth. It looked as good as over at several points, when Normaniter found himself in the cusp of elimination on 3 occasions. Unbelievably, he found a couple of big double throughs and dug deep, where his patience, endurance, and wherewithal saw him take command of both tournaments, which he would go on to win in a truly fairy tale ending. With the big double win, Normaniter becomes the first person to win both league tournaments on a single night, and more crucially, the champion of the PKL Series 1!
