UKIPT Day 1b - Hot Hot Heat
Friday, 12 February 2010
The casino floor is now stifling. With the Friday night crowd now whooping and hollering around the roulette tables, the whole room has turned greenhouse hot despite the best efforts of the air conditioning. To make matters even worse, we've been provided with entertainment in the shape of a gurning crooner - his warbling voice and unrecognizable lounge-disco hybrids drawing perplexed looks from the poker players, and something bordering on contempt from the locals.
Teddy Sheringham may well have been playing today as guest of PokerStars, but he's still visibly distraught to be posing for photos at the desk after splurging his chips away in one badly-timed move, mucking his cards as soon as his all-in was called on a board with two Aces on it.
His chips now belong to Julian Hasse, who is looking calm and in total control of his 90k.
