Nertz History Made!
United States - The table was full for the first time in this Nertz tournament. No computers were going to get a chance to play this time. The players were ready to make history. On the line... the title of "First Ever Nertz Online Champion" and the coveted "Nertz Champion" T-Shirt.
The game started right at 7:30 and lasted only 15 minutes. Jill Sny started off calling "Nertz" the first hand even though Sara Paseka (featured in the online caricature picture above) finished the same hand 1 point better than her. Sara followed the first hand with a gigantic 38-point "Nertz" in the second hand, but Jill still kept the game close scoring 32 points of her own that hand.

After the third hand Sara managed to pull away and put the pressure on the rest of the table. Nate Nelson responded the next 2 hands with back to back "Nertz" calls. However, this was not enough to take the lead position from Sara. Sara finished out the game, claiming the victory, with a 20-point "Nertz" on the sixth hand. Her 102-point victory will go down in Nertz history and will hopefully help give the game of Nertz the recognition it deserves.
