A large crowd has gathered to watch the final minutes of the Pokerstars UKIPT Nottingham event as they wait for the £100 FO side event to start (blinds 300 – 600, 75 ante)
It’s not surprising the crowd is watching because in this last level the chips have been flying across the table quicker then I can write the hands down. Everywhere you look people are pushing all in either to survive or just to pick up big hands.Steve Marskell went all in with QQ vs Matt Wiggleswoth AQ. There were no nasty cards for Steve and he doubled up to 20K. One unlucky man was Tony Stevenson, when he tangled with The Man With No Name (TMWNN), a little short stacked he pushed all in pre-flop for 12K behind TMWNN bet of 3K. TMWNN hesitated briefly and called turning over QJ (off suit) whilst Tony showed AK (off suit). The flop came:9 T JThe turn was a K sealing his fate and making me wonder if TMWNN really does have a little government help.Biggest pot of the night came courtesy of David Sidebottom and Hannah Batwick. The board was:6 5 7Both players checked, turn came:AHannah bet out and David re-raised, Hannah re-raised him and David pushed all making an already large pot huge. Hannah quickly called showing AQ and looked gutted as David showed 89 (suited). Hannah embarrassedly asked for us not to report that hand.Well I’ve just heard the call for the end of play so that means we are out of time as far as tonight is concerned but come back tomorrow and follow the exciting events of Day 1b.Close but didn’t cross the finishing line:123 Anthony Arlott124 Wayne Smithson 125 Jeff Sharpe 126 Steve Jelinek 127 Gary Kelleher 128 Irina Liepina 129 Desmond Jonas 130 Christopher Blower 131 Jamie O'connor 132 David Cleeve 133 Tony Salmon 134 Richard Whiteley 135 George White 136 Craig Watson 137 Craig Walton 138 Charles Flynn 139 Jesus Lizano 140 Graham Richardson 141 Nicholas Crisp 142 Matthew Wigglesworth 143 Alexander Jobling 144 Feng Jiang 145 Richard Grayson 146 Michal Czeszek 147 Richard Norfolk 148 Richard Horton 149 George Geary
