About yesterday’s big final table, commentator Jeff Platt said the following, “When Dan Smith flopped quads to bust Orpen and get us to our final table, we knew we were in for quite the performance and “Cowboy” Dan didn’t let us down. Smith’s performance could simply be described as dominant but the man he beat heads-up for the title leads the race for the SHRB Online Series. Viktor Blom is that name at the top of the leaderboard and given his online resume we couldn’t have wished for a better start of the series!”
