We had numerous subs again for week 15.
Chrissy for Dave Bennett
Rob for Jordan
Twitch for Dave miller
Don for Jeremy Becker
Anthony Pellegrini for Andrea
After this week we have three more weeks and most of the players, if they play their cards right (and others play their cards wrong), have a chance to win a Main Even seat! This week Chrissy Holubeck, subbing for Dave Bennett, got the win, moving Dave up the leaderboard a bit. Brenda is still first on the leaderboard and Jeremy second but there are quite a few close behind!
