There was drama at the Greater Accra Playing Cards League when league leaders, Mighty Jets met Magic Hands in the 23rd week fixtures. It all started during the break at Round 30 when a Magic Hands supporter used a white handkerchief sprinkled with pig fat to clean the table.

Okalla, a player of Mighty Jets gave it a sinister interpretation and gave that supporter a couple of slaps. Okalla was immediately suspended for ten league matches. From then on, as if under spell the league leaders began to exhibit poor play, Nii Mua Muller of Magic Hands put up wonderful display of card reading interspersed with good shuffling to win the day for Magic Hands.

Despite the loss, Mighty Jets still lead the table with 60pts followed by E.T. stars (52pts) and Dynasty third with (51 pts). Liquenders (4th) with 48pts, and both Bazooka and giant-killers Magic Hands follow in that order with 45pts. Professionals, Researchers and Show Boys all have 40 points apiece

The rest of the clubs and their positions on the league follow. Believers (10th ), Dan Rose (11th) Mighty Toppers (12th) and Guav Inn (13th). Zoom Zoom (14th), Rangers (15th), stay Cool 16th Trocadero Stars (17th) with Born Again (18th).

Dantu (19th) and T.T. Stars (20th) are lying comfortably at the bottom of the league table.

In a chat, Okalla of Mighty Jets attributed his clubs defeat to juju. The league is being sponsored by Ghana Breweries Limited (ABC Lager Beer).
