Patience proved to be the deciding factor in the 2005 Fall Classic. Rookie participant Jennifer Jones sat quietly and watched while the other final table qualifiers attempted to push each other around and ultimately eliminated each other. Before she knew what happened she was in a heads-up battle against rookie Nate Lichtsinn. The two newbies battled each other for about a half hour in which Jones widdled down Lichtsinn's 8 to 1 chip lead to ultimately became the chip leader. All-in with a Q-5 solidified the win for Jones who also earns an automatic seat at the Tournament of Champions in February.
The race for remaining spots in the Tournament of Champions is heating up. If the season ended today, Adam Ford, Gunnar Johnson, Brian Schultz, Rich Revord, Katie Mayer, and Jennifer Jones would earn automatic bids as winners of 2005 tournaments. 2 automatic qualification seats will be awarded to the winners of the upcoming Holiday Classic and JBPS Championship. 2 additional at-large bids would become available as Brian Schultz won 2 events, and Adam Ford would be crowned as Player of the Year. The 3 at-large bids would be awarded to Shawn Kroener (3rd in POY Points), Arnie Drusch (7th in POY Points), and Tad Trottier (8th in POY Points). Nick Johnson (9th in POY Points) would be left out on the bubble, finishing 62 points behind Trottier and 64 points behind Drusch.
