10 bdubs3737 3072.33
As you can see, imeasy2read has made a nice little improvement from last month, taking control of 1st place this week, and holding an over 300 point lead on Prom Queens. Both players have been grinding an unbelievable amount of $12 180s, grinding away to get those TLB points.
Whtdove333 is showing just how much those big field tournaments count towards your TLB scores, as she won the Sunday $200k, and garnered a ton of points in the process.
Last month’s champion, bdubs3737, had a great start to his August. He not only won the $55 rebuy, but took down the $200 Limit tournament as well. Neither of those tournaments have huge fields, hence the lesser effects on his TLB score. However, if he keeps this up, he’ll be a force to reckon with in August, just like July.
An interesting name that’s lurking in the Top 25 is shaundeeb. Shaun is well known for putting in monstrous amounts of volumes, and while clocking in at 21st right now, can put in a lot of tournaments at any time and give anyone a run for their money.
