Event #6 of the September Power Weekend, the $300 + $30 Tag Team, brought out a boisterous field of 84 teams. The healthy turnout easily surpassed the $20,000 guarantee and allowed 11 teams to reach the money. The tournament hall was buzzing with excitement throughout the morning, afternoon, evening and night as players shuffled back and forth from their shared stacks, discussing strategy and sweating hands at every opportunity.
In the end, it took 28 levels of play for this event to reach its conclusion. The final table was a seesaw battle that saw the chips move from one team to another; every team that reached the final table went through some major swings in the process.
Ultimately, it was Team Ravary that prevailed. They quietly maintained one of the larger stacks in play from the beginning to the end of this event, without ever holding the outright chip lead until the late stages of the final table. Both team members played consistent, determined and focused poker throughout the day. The later things went, the better they got for Team Ravary. They kept their patient approach at the final table, before they were able to capitalize on a series of strong starting hands that sent several teams to the rail. In the heads-up battle against Team Javier, both team members found ways to win lots of chips without showdown, and they were able to outflop their opponents on the final hand to become Tag Team champions! Congratulations!
