January 2020 Winners
Freebuy January 2020 Awards
Bonanza January 2020 Awards
POINTS TITLE - DigDug DigDug pretty much had this locked up with a 665 point lead over GPeppin. But a Win, 2nd or 3rd place finish from GPeppin would have snatched this title away. Pepp was hot the final game with a 2nd place finish, but Digger was on his tail with a 3rd place finish, enough to claim the title.
WINNINGS TITLE - DigDug & GPeppin Riversalmon's Win the night before put him a mere 37 cents ahead of DigDug. The key here is to make the final table tonight, which he did by finishing in 5th. The unknown factor was a 3rd place finish from GPeppin and 2nd place finish from Digger which worked out to be a tie for the Winnings Title. What a finish!
FREEBUY QUEEN Seaeyes took over the lead the previous night and had a 140 point lead over Talkpkr2me. Talk came on strong with an 8th place finish, while Sea went out earlier at #15. This was enough to scoot into the lead.
Bonanza January 2020 Final
POINTS TITLE - GPeppin GPeppin pretty much had this locked up with a 750 point lead over Joshua360 going into the final game. A Win or 2nd place finish from either Joshua, Benji or Seaeyes could have snatched the title away. Pepp needed to run deep, and he did with a 7th finish in the final game. Good finish because Benji and Seaeyes made the final table and wanted it badly.
WINNINGS TITLE - Bottleup74 Joshua360 had a $1.50 lead over Bottleup74 heading into the final game. Bottle was hot, hot, hot hitting 7 Top6 appearances of the previous 8 games. This matchup came down to who can put another Top6 notch on their belts and Bottle did not fail with a 2nd place finish over Joshua who tapped out at #14.
FREEBUY QUEEN - Seaeyes BenjiSnoopy held a mere 50 point lead over Seaeyes going into the final game and both had a crack at the Points Title as well. Sea came out on top with a 3rd place finish over Benji's 9th place.

State of the Bounty - December 2019
Happy New Year and welcome to 2020!!! With the holidays behind us, things are returning to normal if there is such a thing when poker is involved. 😊
Just a reminder to everyone that THR is a not-for-profit Internet Radio station. Your donations are mainly used to provide ALL of our bounties and prizes every night and, occasionally, they help to defer our costs to keep everything running. Nothing is free my friends!
We had 27 combined donations, from 17 different individuals of $287.82 for the Freebuy and Bounty Bonanza games! We offered up a total of $433.02 of which 79% or $342.93 was paid out for bounties and other awards to our members! That left $90.09 (21%) unclaimed during December.
As you may see from previous months, donations slowed in December and we paid out a lot more than we took in so we are hopeful that things will pick up in the new year, otherwise, amounts paid out for bounties will decrease.
Many thanks to everyone who helps make us so successful every day of every month! Without our members we are nothing!! THR members ROCK!!!
