Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, what a spectaclehas been!
A full month of intense poker competition with friendly rivalries and new friendships forged over the ice rink, gold medals won on the slopes, and dominating performances on the curling sheet. This year’s contests were as hard fought as we have ever seen! With over 5,500 unique players in some events, it takes something special to take home any medal, let alone a gold one.
Let’s take a look at the events and how they broke down in the final two weeks of The Replay Winter Games:
As we saw in the first two weeks, there is one special individual who has dominated the medal table for the third and fourth weeks:, who managed to double their gold medal total to 12 over the course of the final 14 events. Goatsoup’s performance in The Replay Winter Games was astonishing, with a gold medal in 42% of their events and a medal won in 100% of events (28/28). This is the greatest performance by any individual in the history of The Replay Winter Game. America should declare a public holiday in their honor based on this performance!
Second place in thegoes to TiggyTime from the Czech Republic, who picked up 2 gold medals and won a medal in 26/28 events, for an 89% strike rate!
Third place goes towho hails from the USA and picked up two gold medals, but one less silver than TiggyTime. 505UPUNXL managed to win a medal in 17/28 events, for a strike rate of 60%.
