February’s Man on Fire – Blaze

IMG_7308

Blaze, who’s been playing with Freeroll Atlanta for as long as we’ve even existed, has finished the month of February as the top points earner.

His top spot was earned with some calculated moves on his part – making sure to play a more aggressive style if he made it to the final table.  Aggression payed off, as it usually does!

Blaze’s stats really reflect his stellar play in February…

Blaze’s February 2014 stats:

  • Total points:  77 (league average 6.18)
  • Player score:  0.804 (league average 0.496)
  • Total KOs:  34 / 2.13 per game (league average 3.0 total KOs)
  • Registrations:  16 (league average 3.16)
  • In-the-points percentage:  63%
  • Points per game:  4.81
  • Total winnings:  $210

Blaze’s player score, even after 16 games, was in the 0.800s!  That’s extremely impressive, especially given that the league average was under 0.500.

Looking at the number of knockouts:  on average, players got 3 knockouts total through the entire month – Blaze nearly got that every night he played!

And by looking at his points-per-game:  4.81 ppg means he was getting 5th place on average… or at least a bunch of KOs on our knockout nights.

Here’s a chart showing Blaze’s progress through February, compared to the average score of the entire league.  Blaze  only had 4 games where he performed worse than the league average.
