Year-end awards: January-June

With the Thursday Night Investment Club season rapidly reaching a conclusion — the Grand Finale is Dec. 30 — I wanted to hand out some awards. So here are a few:

Player of the Month for January: Magic Man gets the first monthly award with 18 points in three sessions.

Player of the Month for February: The Competitor took top honors with 17 points in three sessions.

Player of the Month for March: Hoot was best with 19 (tying the Forgotten One) in four sessions.

First quarter MVP: Hoot was on his hot streak and compiled 49 points in the first quarter.

Player of the Month for April: Hoot is still on a roll and grabs 29 points in five sessions.

Player of the Month for May: The Assassin dominates with 20 points in three sessions.

Player of the Month for June: We only played twice and Hoot won both. He gets his third award.

Second quarter MVP: Hoot, master of the string bet, takes honors again with 54 points in the quarter.

Times in the money (first or second) in the first half:

Hoot 12 (including 5 firsts)
Assassin 8
Competitor 6
Peel-Out and Magic Man 5
Forgotten One 4

Player of the Year points (1 point for a monthly MVP, 2 points for a quarterly MVP, 1 point for a second-place finish, 2 points for a first-place finish):

Hoot 24
Assassin 12
Competitor 10
Magic Man 9
Peel-Out and Forgotten One 8

Conclusion: It was all Hoot, all the time. In one stretch of 13 sessions, he finished first or second 10 times. Will the second half be different?
