I have played with Jarrod before, at the ESCARGOT, MARGE and BARGE events for RGP. He is not only a really good player, as witnessed here today, he is also one of the nicest guys around. I think both these guys will put up a great fight for this bracelet...not to mention the cash.
Time to wait for a few moments while the powers that be bring out the cash and the gold bracelet.
