Marc Goodwin found the true meaning of a cold deck when he got into a hand with Rich Hinds (blinds 150 - 300)
Rich bet out 750 in mid-position with TT and was flat called by Marc on the button with 8T (hearts). The flop came down:8 T 2 (2 diamonds)Rich bet out 1300 and unaware of the train wreck before him Marc pushed all in sure he was ahead with his two pair. Rich had no trouble calling with the nuts and sadly with his luck banks massively depleted from earlier Marc was knocked out the tournament.For the most part Pro watch has been relatively uneventful. Rob Yong has lost some of his earlier stack but is still looking pretty safe with 25K. Julian Thew and Vickey Cohen are taking things slow on the average though I have heard Michale Grecco has bitten the dust and from the look on his face he isn't best pleased about it. I feel a bad beat is in the air.On less pro related news one sick hand I wittness was between Alan Stern vs poor Lee Harling. Lee Harling limped and Alan Stern made a respectible bet of 800 on the button with AK (A of spades) and Lee called. The flop came:8 Q 6 (2spades)Lee checked and Alan bet 1200, Lee with the pair and flush draw called. The turn was:9 (spades)Lee checked again and Alan bet 2K, Lee re-raised him to 4K and Alan asked how many chips he had behind (about 6K) before calling. The river was:2 (spades)Lee but his remaining chips in and Alan now with the nut flush happily called making Lee leave the tournament kicking himself.Another player heading home is Lilengren Nikalaf. I only catched the river play but the board was:A Q 6 J 8Lilengran went all in with JQ (two pairs) but unfortunately for him Andy Cradock had flopped two pair with his AQ sending Lilengran home.Others who will walk where no living man may:276 Liam Fergal Mckeever277 Richard Sutcliffe278 Alan Linford279 Neil Mcdonagh280 Klemi Hagag281 Robert Charlton282 Tom Smith283 Liljengren Nikolaj284 Miles Crotty285 Jeroen Voortman286 Paul Hepworth287 Ben Young288 Nicholas Marshall289 Jack Ellwood290 Jen-yue Chiang291 Robert Stevens292 Gerard Harraghy293 Michael Greco294 Jerome Bradpiece295 Marc Goodwin296 Aaron Barry297 Robert Woodcock298 Erik Van Gemert299 Lee Harling300 Peter James Lody301 Mohammed Suhail302 William Davies303 Martin Spouse-wright304 David La Ronde305 Jef Rogers306 Jorei Zandvliet307 Grahame Monagha308 Daniel Nutt309 Nathan Harris310 Peter Wood311 John-paul Kelly312 James Atkin313 Jack Sambrook
