WSPL Goes to Vegas Episode 2/12

Week 12 was fairly anti-climactic.   Mark and Rich were almost guaranteed to go to Vegas.  Aaron had a chance to knock Rich out if he won and Rich finished in 6th place or worse. I could knock either Rich or Mark out if I won and they came in 6th or worst.  Or something similar to that. I don't remember the exact scenarios.   It didn't matter though. Aaron went out first.   He tried to play too aggressively into Rich and it did not work out well for him.

I ended up going out second.  I was doing ok, but then I got distracted discussing a Roulette betting scheme in which I contend that if you pick four numbers and keep doubling your bet until you win, after 16 rounds your EV turns positive.  Rich disputes this, and while attempting to explain my math over the interwebs, I failed to notice that I was playing shitty poker.    To make matters worse Mark goes out fourth, which was his worst showing of the year, and would have left me room to sneak into the WSOP.

Rich came in third which was enough to put him in the overall lead, despite only winning one tourney.

Here are the finals:
