Over 100 players bite the dust at the Pokerstars UKIPT Nottingham

Over 100 players bite the dust at the Pokerstars UKIPT Nottingham

Thursday, 13 May 2010

As the blinds go up and the antes appear the desperate and the reckless are dissappearing fast (150 - 300, 25 ante).

We started with 394 players (virtually a full house) but are down already to a mere 251. Even those with the best of hands have not been immune in fact your favorite blogger has seens aces cracked not once, not twice but three times in the past hour. The more cynical among you grumbling in bad beat corner are probably already shaking your heads as the way it always go with the best hand in poker.

First aces cracked was by Marc Convey who bet 800 on the button with 88. The BB, Duncan Wilkie waking up with aces bet 2700 and Marc called. The flop came:

9 8 K (rainbow)

Marc disguised his hand by betting 3K and Duncan flat called. The turn came:


And both players checked. River:

T (diamond)

Marc bet 4K and Duncan paid him off, giving Marc a 20 K pot.

Bad beat number 2 came courtesy of DTD's own Rob Yong. Rob woke up with QQ and bet 800 from mid-position he was quickly re-raised by Steve Redfern to 2K, holding AA. Rob flat called and the flop came down:

9 Q T

Rob checked on the flop and Steve bet 4K. Robe the pushed all in and Steve insta-called but very soon wish he hadn't. No ace came and Steve's stack was desimated as Rob picked up a 37K pot bringing his stack to 44K.

Last but not least was a very odd one and perhaps a very bad lay down. Mitchel Johnson UTG found pocket A's and bet out and picked up two callers SB (Alan linfrod) and the BB (Harry Roson). The flop came:

2 6 3 (2 diamonds)

Mitchel bet out 2.8K and the SB made it 6K, the BB thought about it then folded. Nitchel then showed AA and mucked. What was going through the gentlemens head is a mystery, perhaps he picked up a read I missed but it just goes to show there's more then one way to crack aces.
