Shawn "JJJJ" Eldridge held quad jacks twice tonight, powering to a chopped-pot finish with Jeff Salazar. A lengthy heads-up battle was averted when Shawn offered to chop since he was not feeling well. Jeff agreed after some hesitation.

When Shawn made quad jacks the first time, he eliminated 3 other players, and in the second he easily outdistanced pocket aces. Shawn also took 5 of the 8 bounties, plus the half bounty on your host.

Robyn Cassidy made her first appearance in over a year, taking third place. She was short stacked coming the final table, but doggedly held on for a money finish.

Yours truly came in 4th, collecting a single bounty. Shawn and Robyn also collected one bounty each.

It was good to have a nice field of 17 players. See you all in February! Very likely the 2nd, but don't count your shadows quite yet.
