The New York Rounders are on a rush and hoping their run good continues today. Team manager Bryn Kenney will be trying to build upon his brother Tyler's magnificent performance on Tuesday. Tyler posed 12 points after winning one 6-max match and taking second place in the other. His 1-2 finish propelled New York into first place with a comfortable 5-point lead over Montreal Nationals in second place and an even headier 10-point lead over third place L.A. Sunset. But that was then…it's heads-up now. The pressure is on Bryn Kenney to keep up New York's fast pace. Nine points are up for grabs. Even of Montreal wins two out of three matches, New York will still maintain first place. Montreal needs a 3-0 shutout if they want to seize control of first place.
The opening fight on the card includes a match between San Paulo and Las Vegas. Both teams are tied for fourth place and looking to make a move in the right direction. With New York in the middle of a heater, both teams would love a 3-0 sweep and 9 extra points to boost their tepid point totals. In the other featured match of the day, Team PokerStars Pro from Russia and member of the L.A. Sunset, Eugene Katchalov, will be squaring off against American young gun Jonathan Jaffe from the San Francisco Rush. The two California franchises are rival cities in real life, not just in sports, but in business and culture as well. There's a distinct difference between Northern California and Southern California…and an even greater difference between foggy San Francisco and perpetually-sunny Los Angeles. Which team will in the Battle of California between conference rivals?
