In 2014, we brought the World Championship to the epicenter of Big Buck fandom itself -
With people from every corner of the Pourhouse and indeed, every corner of the world watching
(thanks to a slick new broadcast on Twitch), the pressure was on. One by one, players were
knocked out, and as the smoke cleared, a plush lion hat came into view - it was none
other than Derek Tower! Perhaps our most humble Champion, he was quoted as saying that the
title means more to him than the big check.
The now legendary rivalry between 2-time winner Sara Erlandson and sitting Ladies Champ
Melinda Van Hoomissen hung heavy in the air as they both stepped into the spotlight for the
final match. After a vicious back-and-forth game, Sara managed to win back her coveted title!
