Thanks to everyone who participated in the 2nd Luckbox Last Longer Challenge. It was a huge success... made even better by the $2000 added prize pool from our friends at PokerStars!
We had 24 teams enter for a total of $720 in entry fees. If that doesn't scream, "Hammer!" then I don't know what does.
In the end, Team Roach bested us all with a remarkable combined finish of 43. Poker Gnome finished 5th, Recess Rampage finished 16th and Bayne finished 22nd. They each walked away with $120 plus $500 from PokerStars.
The lovely ladies from Team Hammer Girls finished 2nd with a combined finish of 65. Katitude finished 19th, Maigrey finished 21st and Maudie finished 25th. They each cashed for $72 plus $500 to split from PokerStars.
Last, but not least, Team Tao of Pot proved that chemical enhancements can pay off. Their combined finish of 78 was 8 better than 4th place. Change100 bubbled the final table in 11th, Derek finished 28th and Pauly finished 39th. They each took home $48.
