Congratulations Andy Clements for winning the Poets’ Corner, his first league win in five years of playing Hold’em. Andy led the table from week one and even drove through driving rain from a Suffolk family holiday in order not to miss an evening. A credible four wins in thirteen tournaments is rarely done. Andy’s style was to play a wide range of hands in the opening phases of the tournament, normally straddling under the gun and tightening to a duck’s arse style on top table.

Perhaps his hero fold of the season was folding pocket aces pre flop as he didn’t fancy them.

Andy’s tournament ratings for the Poets’ Corner are shown on the pie chart below.

He outperformed all contenders in the league on measured stats with the exception of kills, which Rob The Hitman Scott took under his wing.

Special mention should also go to Matt Mr Luck Jones who gave Andy a run for his money through the season. The highlight of Matt’s season was his all in of 9T spades in big blind, when The Vulture had called under the gun with QQ. An all spades flop of 7,8 and J gave him a straight flush!  

The pie chart above indicates the strength of Andy’s games at the Poets’ Corner this season. It measures the quartile finish in each tournament. In a sixteen player event, a player finishing in the top four would be in Quartile 1, fifth to eighth Quartile 2, ninth to twelfth in Quartile 3 and thirteenth to sixteenth in Quartile 4.

Andy not only won four tournaments, he ended in the top half in nearly in two thirds of the events and never busted in the early stages of the tournament.
