Penultimate level of Day 1b

Penultimate level of Day 1b

Thursday, 13 May 2010

Nearly half of the people who came to play today have now gone home or more likely to the bar and the one's who are left are using the last couple of hours to grab as many chips as they can (blinds 200 - 400, Ante 50).

Due to my last entry beining finished just before the 20 minute break period this update is going to be a little sparse but I picked up a few little titbits for you.

Following on from the previous entry the curse of the aces continues with Pippa Flanders being the main villian. Vach Nankoosing picked up the pocket rockets in late position and bet out getting a call from Pippa in the SB with KT (hearts). The flop came:

6 K J (2 clubs)

Pippa bet 2K and was re-raised by Vach to 7K. Pippa flated it and the turn came:

T (diamond)

Pippa checked and Vach moved all in with Pippa quickly calling. Nothing came for Vach and he was out of the tournament another victim of the cursed aces.

Hopefully I won't be accussed of nepotism here but I've got another update on my dear old dad. He's been going up and down but picked up a nice 10K pot when he took out James Clark from the tournament. In mid-position he bet 1.1K and was called on the button. Then James Clark short stack on 4.5K pushed all in. Kevin asked how many chips the button had before calling the 4.5k, the button folded and both players turned their hands over.

James Clark showed KQ (off suit) and Kevin O'Connell showed AQ of diamonds. Three diamonds on the flop destoryed any suspense and made pater 7 K richer.

More as it happens sports fans.
