United States - The timing was right. The players shuffled into the NNA Members lobby, a lobby that was to host the Final Table of the second NNA Online Tournament. They had been anxiously awaiting this game as it had been postponed until tonight.
The Champion Sara Paseka, veteran Jill Younker-Sny, and new challengers Steven Wingfield and Cathy Anderson were not going to miss this opportunity. The title of "Champion" was up for grabs and they all wanted it. One would prove to want it more than the others.
The game started with a full table set by Steven giving him 23 point lead from his nearest opponent. Sara quickly followed with a 26 point Nertz of her own in Hand #2 closing her margin to 17 points from the point leader Steven.

Then, Sara went on a rampage to win four more hands(Nerting 3 of those 4) to secure her second title of "Online Nertz Champion". Steven finished with 72 points saving the game from being a total blowout. The game was over in just 13 minutes. It was an impressive victory to say the least.
Sara's dominance is worth noting. She remains undefeated in her online tournament play and now seems to want all the Nertz prizes she can get her hands on. As of now she has earned the only invitations to the "Tournament of Champions" at the year's end. Will she have to beat herself in that tournament?
