Andy Black bows out in 10th

After a long push to get to our final 9, we have Andy Black bowing out in 10th.

Judy Ainsworth, 11th place, seemed to go all-in with an exhausted effort with J9, and called by John Eames' Q10. Eames rivers a straight to end Jude run.

Jude played a blinder today, and we sad to see not reach the final day.

Andy and Judy, with one or two others, have had a roller-coaster of a day, containing multiple variations of highs and lows. These combined really brought on a lot of fatigue near the end.

Andy says being short stacked when we were down to 2 tables made it hard to create opportunities to build. He was happy with his play and holds no regrets.

It has been great to see Andy here again this year. He is always very entertaining to have in any card room.

So many greats have fallen today.
Here are the 20th to 10th places:

10th. Andy Black (€19,400)
11th. Jude Ainsworth (€19,400)
12th. Lorna Lancaster (€19,400)
13th. Derek Thorpe (€15,100)
14th. Vincent Burke (€15,100)
15th. Olaf Martensen (€15,100)
16th. Myles Kenny (€15,100)
17th. Phillip Peters (€11,700)
18th. Jonathan Spinks (€11,700)
19th. Marty Smyth (€11,700)
20th. Lee Bennett (€11,700)
