In Week 21, We had perhaps the greatest game of the season, Shanice having an incredible bitterly fought death struggle with her bitterest rival Haitian Princess with league leader Natasha right in the middle of it. An epic game that none of us will ever forget. When the dust settled Shanice was victorious with her 4th win of the campaign with Natasha 2nd and Haitian Princess 3rd.

wee lass shanice gets her win but what a win! there have been many a great game this season and today shanice, natasha and the exotic princess from haiti produced what must go down as a classic. this was indeed the greatest game of the season between former champion shanice, defending champion haitian princess and champion elect natasha. they all gave everything they had.
i came nowhere today which is the story of my season, but stayed to spectate the rest of the game, we all know shanice and princess do not like each other much and they always play extra hard against each other they give 110 % instead of their usual 100% and thats why you get great games between them.
princess also had to beat tasha, and beating two of the connors sisters is hard when you are down the last few on a table and in the end princess came 3rd. this was one of the best games i have ever seen, it was tense and exciting and though i came nowhere it was great to watch it.
To say I have run out of superlatives to say about this seasons Ladies League has got to be the exaggeration of the century. Today we saw a game that was almost as if we were all beamed over to another planet when compared to a normal game of poker. The almost sublime quality of play was at times mesmerizing between Shanice, Natasha and Haitian Princess and you can throw Jane Ion into the mix also. Just superb faultless play throughout the entire game. They didn't just bring their A games, they bought so much more to the table.
As for the standings which seemed to not matter as much as the game itself today, Natasha continues her consistently and is closing in on the title.
Lots of good things about the game today but one thing i would like to add is that I thought it was very classy that despite all the bad blood between them down the years the sheer respect Shanice and the Haitian Princess showed for each other at the end of the game.
A game for the ages, Haitian Princess won last week and is at her very best and it took Shanice's very best to see her off today. This game was as superb as it gets and it just doesn't get any better than this. Natasha held her own against the two heavyweights. Quite simply this game will go into the GMC™ Hall of Fame for Greatest Games.
In the standings there are only five more weeks to go and just a matter of time before Natasha crosses the line despite the best efforts of Shanice with her 4th win of the season today, And with her recent upsurge in form Haitian Princess has managed to get herself up to joint 3rd.
