Involved in a huge five way pot Goodwin defied the odds to win with the worst hand (blinds 100 - 200).
Under the gun, William Young bet out 800 and got three callers (Alli Mallu, Dale Gerrad and Michael Piper) before Marc Goodwin pushed all in with his remaining 1925. The remaining four players all called and the flop came:6 7 9 (2 diamonds)William bet 2.7K and Alli Mallu re-raised him to a massive 40K, Dale and Michael quickly left the pot and after a bit of thought so did William. Alli showed 84 (diamonds) and Marc turned over 47 (off suit) for middle pair. The turn was an A and the board paired when a 6 came on the river to qintuple up (5X) saving his bacon and giving him 10,000 chips to play with.In other poker news my dad has gone to war with JPK in another hand. JPK limped in early position and picked up five callers my dad in the BB checked. The flop came:9 5 Q (rainbow)JPK bets 550 and everybody folded but Kevin called. the turn:7 (diamond)JPK bet out again 1350 and dad calls. The river:2 (spades)They both check and both turn over 85 suited JPK with clubs and my dad with diamonds so the plot is splitted.BREAKING NEWS!Just heard that JPK was knocked out by John Prestead when JPK hit a set of 5's and John hit a set of T's. The inetiable collision sent the already short stacked JPK out of the tournament unlucky for the bracelet holder.One final hand for you poker junkies was a tough laydown by Wayne Madle. In late position Tuan Lee bet 800 and was re-raised by Wayne Maddle in the cut off to 2400. Tuan called and the flop came:Q 7 3 (rainbow)Tuan checked and Wayne bet out 3000. Tuan quickly re-raised him to 18K.Wayne spent several minutes agonising before one player apologetically asked him if calling a clock woulf help him make a decision. Wayne said it would and a clock was called, 40 seconds in Wayne showed AQ and threw it away. Tuan mucked, so either a great lay down or a great bluff, sadly we'll never know but that's poker.Others who must make the long walk home:314 Abdul Koysor315 Gerald David316 Daniel Bass317 Rory Liffey318 Martin Muslow319 Shoib Gulamhussein320 Derek Thorpe321 Shaun Williams322 Thomas Dunwoodie323 Hugh Kirton324 Luke Marsh325 Mario Paviou326 Moshe Vaizman327 John Exley328 Raj Dhiri329 Ben Eldred330 Glen Storey331 Matthew Heap332 Jonathan Lundy333 Sadan Turker334 William Cheung335 Michael Crozier336 Phillip Mighall337 Harry Rason338 Albert Sapiano339 Trevor O Sullivan340 Nichiei Hicks341 Huang Guoxun342 Anthony Cascarino343 Nigel Sutcliffe344 Charles Chattha345 Carlo Citrone346 Kevin Mccann347 Raghubinder Aujla348 Anthony Nicholls349 Glyn Rees350 Dost Mohammad Ghrabie351 James Glossop352 Paul David353 Mark Emberson354 Daniel Davis
