With the introduction of the ante big stacks are starting to bully and short stacks are tactically pushing all in to steal as many chips as they can (blinds 150 - 300, ante 25).
There's been a lot of great poker today and some that stink like a three day dead donkey (you know who you are - my evil eyes see all). One player who didn't wish to be named fell into the later. Pre-flop he called a bet by Jerard Barkley. The flop came:2 9 6 (two clubsThe man with no name bet out and Jerard pushed all in. Our anonomous friend went in the tank for a long while, asking if he had T's, before calling showing A9. Jerard showed AA, no miracle came and he picked up a 20K pot. Making me wonder why he asked if he had T's when even that was crushing him. An interesting hand involved the worst hand in poker making a surprisingly good lay down.Richard Whitely opened the betting with a bluff holding 72 offsuit and was called by Parminder Kendale holding 79 (diamonds). The flop came:K 7 7Richard bet out and was raised by Parminder, Richard flat called. The turn:3 (diamonds)Richard bet out again but Parminder re-raised and Richard showed the 72 before folding, Paraminder showed the winning hand of 79 (diamonds) a very good lay down from Richard.And as I've spent a lot of time on the little stacks getting crushed lets quickly look at a hand where one little stack really was the engine that could.Ahmed Ifiklier managed to not only double up but punish a fair few limpers when he pushed in his remaining 5K with AA and got called by Suzanne Gilbert holding AQ. Managing to avoid any bad beats Ahmed scooped the 12K pot and gave himself some breatheing room.Gone but not forgotten:174 Michael Jones175 Peter Thomas176 David N Smith177 Pakken Yung178 Brian Clarke179 Keith Geary180 Michael Fisher181 Tim Blake182 Suzanne Gilbert183 Richard Fuller184 Ashfaq Raja185 Thomas Och186 Pawel Keller187 Tasos Grigoriou188 Chun Law189 Kuljinder Singh190 Daniel Morgan191 David Burn192 Stephen Welsby193 Jonothon Butters194 Simon Lee195 Adam Ashworth196 Stephen Holden197 Christopher Witney198 David Barnes199 Basharat Mahmood200 Garinder Purewal201 Allan Pike202 Jason Bright203 Richard Finney204 Micheal Adebiyi
