Season 15: Game 8 deep stacked

Deep Stacked, Monday night poker league, game 8 of 9 unfolded with all the drama and excitement you'd expect from the MNPL. This was a night of early exits for some of our top players, shaking up the leaderboard and setting the stage for a tough finale.

Samero and Matt Lopresti, both contenders for the top spots, were among the casualties of the night. Three substitutes stepped up to the plate. Bickford filled in for Butter, who is currently living it up on the WPT cruise tour . Chuck took over for Ray C, and Chris Cote bravely played for Waldman, who was apparently getting his teeth pulled and decided to share a rather graphic photo with the group. Thanks Rick.

Despite Waldman's dental woes, his substitute managed to snag a much-needed second place, and to top it off, he won the lottery for the night. We were all hoping his luck would rub off on us when the ticket was drawn, but alas, it was not to be. Scott and Harry, however, continue to hold down the bottom spots, while Keane and Jacob are locked in a fierce battle to break into the top 5 and secure their spot in the Vegas package. At the end of the night, Roger took down first place, even after almost mucking earlier in the night, in the highly debated "Im Out" situation w/ Samero.

Dr. Shinn hobbled over Hoagie with hsi broken foot and now holds the lead going into the last month. However, there's a twist in the tale. Due to a kids' soccer game, Shinn may not even make it to the final showdown. Oh, the suspense!

As for the reigning champ, Keane, the pressure is on. If he doesn't clinch victory in the final game, he'll have to bid farewell to his cherished bracelet. Mathematically, Keane still has a fighting chance.

Mark your calendars for the championship game at 1 PM on Sunday, May 19th.
