2012 Consul Award Nick Henning

Our first Juniors progam graduate has clawed his way to the top by posting the best WBC week of 2012 to elbow two-time Caesar Randy Buehler aside by 17 laurels. Although Randy may well have a case that this is one title deserving of an asterisk. Had his 60-laurel win for Through the Ages counted as a WBC event rather than a Pre-Con, he would have won handily and ruled alone again. The part Pre-Con, part WBC events will always leave the door open for controversy. Although only eighth in the Caesar standings, Nick was one of the eight Top 25 gamers of the year to score all his laurels in the seven days of WBC. Despite Nick’s belated start, his recent back-to-back-to-back campaigns have raised him to 17th place on BPA’s all time Laurelists—only nine places and 230 laurels behind his dad.

Although Nick won three events he was put over the top by scoring in four others with two seconds, a fourth and a sixth. Doug Galullo matched him by scoring in seven events but could muster only one win and finished sixth overall. In contrast, Jason Levine won four events, but they were small and had only one other laurel event, finishing fourth overall. The contenders who surpassed 100 laurels at WBC included Matt Calkins, Jason Levine, Eric Freeman and Doug Galullo in that order. Only Henning managed to repeat as a top Consul contender, improving from 4th in 2010 to second in 2011 and king of the hill in 2012.
