Folks… The Last Man Standing has concluded. It was fitting that the last of the LMS tournaments be a match between two giants of our game – Saeed Nourmohammadi and Grant Hoffman. Grant won the match and also came 1st in the Side Pool ($1080 + $280); Saeed came 2nd ($540); Steve Nelson came 3rd in the tournament and 2nd in the Side Pool ($180 + $120).
Thank you all for your participation. I shall be replacing my three online tournaments with a single format that I trust will be popular with most of you. Full details soon. – Gary
