Nasty Incident on day 2 of IWF
Monday, 26 October 2009
A violent scuffle broke out between the tournament director and an obnoxious spectator who was behaving like an animal.
The TD was left with a badly bleeding head after being struck with his own microphone. He landed a few digs on the drunkard before security intervened to toss him out.
He was heard shouting "he hit me first" as he was led away which, to the 20 or so eye witnesses, was complete bollox.
Professional as ever, the TD was back out with his wound still bleeding slightly and his fists clenched presiding over events as usual. I would hate to be the next player to challenge him.
In our last round. 28 players left. Blinds 5,000-10,000.
Prize money has started being dished out. I'll list more later.
