I must have missed it - how did Rhys Jones bust?  

If it was one hand, surely it was for a chip-lead pot?  

Must admit with your updates, I'm sure I'm not alone in thinking Rhys might be   today...

Congratulations to NIK PERSUAD, who wins the March Genting Poker Big Game!

After much discussion, players were able to agree on a deal when four-way with an 'approximate ICM' deal leaving the final pay-outs looking like this:

1st - Nik Persuad.... £10,000
2nd - Guy Bowles..... £8,400
3rd - Carl Spicer...... £8,400
4th - Craig Sweden.. £8,400
5th - Jason Gilbert.... £1,800

Thanks to all of you for your input, likes, comments and contributions! We'll have a full write-up for you later and until then, huge respect to Nik Persuad, who was short-stacked with a dozen players remaining but played some superb poker to grind back up and then take control of the final table. Well played, sir!

Danny Laming BUBBLES the Big Game!

After Danny Laming raised, Nik Persuad and the young Team Duffy star were all-in and Laming was at risk, holding Ah Qx.  Persuad had pocket tens, and it was a classic coin-flip. 

The first card out of the deck was the ten of hearts, giving Nik trips, but two more hearts tumbled out directly after, meaning Laming had two cards to the nut flush draw.  Sadly for him, he bricked them both and he finishes in 6th place for nothing but a pat on the back for a hard evening's work.  Truth be told, Laming was one of the best players here, and can definitely consider himself not to be fighting for the higher pay-outs round about now.

Sunny Chattha BUST in 8th place.

Sunny had been grinding a short stack for some time, finally getting it in with K-3.  Nik Persuad called the 17,000 shove in the next seat, but incredibly, Jason Gilbert open-folded pocket TENS in mid-position.  Nik flipped A-K and held to eliminate sunny, but the first card out of the deck was a ten.  Jason Gilbert just missed the opportunity he might have to wait a very long time for again. 

Nik Persuad has gone form short-stack grinding a massage to second in chips behind Guy Bowles and enjoying a cheese 'n' ham toastie.  Apparently, Nik plans on playing the opening flight of the UKIPT here in London...

"...after I've won this, obviously."

A Swift Exit

Katie Swift has bubbled the final table!  The longest lasting female (also the first female to bust) made it all the way to 10th place but it isn;t good enough for a cash - that starts at 5th. 

Katie called a raise from Kamal Choraria pre-flop with K-Q and saw the flop of T-J-Q.  That's when the chips went in, but she was in bad shape...

Katie Swift - K-Q
Kamal Choraria - A-K

Her opponent had flopped 'Broadway' and busts her in 10th.  Players are gathering at the final table, chip-counts going into nine-handed final table play next!

Is this our winner?  He'll certainly feel he can make a run from anywhere, and even though he's stacked at around 25k right now, Nik Persuad can make hero folds, big calls, he's got the game for absolute sure.  While he's having the life massaged out of those shoulders on Table 2, we've come down to just 18 players, with Nik sharing table oxygen with Abi Khaitan, Sunny Chattha, Guy Bowles, table leader Marvin Bubel, Sam Patel and Mike Ellis.  That's a tough table to escape!

Elsewhere, you can check out the feature table, where the following players will be in action in just a few minutes for your entertainment - Katie Swift, Danny Laming, Craig Sweden, Rahim Tadj-Saadat and Mat Frankland among others.   

Five make money, with the winner taking £16,200 - who's YOUR money on from here?

Team Duffy busts Team Duffy!

Stevie Watts has busted the Genting Poker Big Game after Danny Laming got the better of him in a limped pot.  Steve held QQ, an enemy who was 'raising every hand' according to everyone who was on the table with him didn't do so, flat-calling.... and Danny made it up from the blinds.   

Flop: J-7-3. 

That's when the money went in, and after the enemy dodged the mine, Danny called off Steve's 12k shove with... 7-3!

Laming leaps up the ladder, while Watts waves goodbye before the money - unlucky, Steve.

Joe Laming Swiftly Eliminated!

Team Duffy, man down!! Yes, January's winner Joe Laming has busted the Genting Poker Big Game as he lost the lot to the only female player in the room.

Gentleman Joe, who took down January's Big Game for £12,000 was heads-up with Katie Swift from pre-flop, holding K-Q.  He continued aggression on the harmless flop of 9-6-3 and the turn came an ace.  Again, Joe led out and got a flat call from Katie.  On the river, a king fell to now give him second pair.  He jammed 'for value', before Swift made the decision after tanking for a minute and a half or so. 

Eventually, she called it off:

Katie - A-J
Danny - K-Q

That was enough to total Joe's stack, and as he put it 'she can maybe call a little quicker on the river if she's made that decision to call on the turn, but she played the hand really well, I thought.'

What do you think?

It's break-time here at the Genting Poker Big Game, so let's bring you some chip-counts from favourites out there in the main tournament room!   

From players with millions in tournament results to qualifiers from this afternoons' satellite qualifier, there's something for everyone:


Marvin Bubel (Chip Leader) - 52,075
Rahim Tadj-Saadat - 40,800
Katie Swift (only female player) - 31,000
Sunny Chattha - 25,000
Danny Laming - 20,850
Steve Watts - 20,750
Sam Patel - 20,350

For anyone watching the live streamed feature table, Mat Frankland in Seat 6 has elected not to show his hole cards this evening.  We know some of you might notify us to let us know about any problems with the live stream, rest assured that there aren't any and its a personal choice.  It's actually a great chance for any upcoming players to try to work out what Mat's playing in each hand and 'sweat' along with a top pro, so if you're watching, why not try it?

Champion Busted!

Patryk Slusarek will not be retaining his title.  He got involved with a low hand of 5-6 pre-flop, and inside must have been grinning when the flop came 5-6-4.  That's when the chips went in - and unfortunately for Patryk, his opponent had played even lower small-ball with 2-3 and had flopped the straight.  Our February champion had the re-draw to the full house of course, but missed any of the four remaining 5's and 6's on turn and river and heads home.

There will be a new name on The Hendon Mob by morning... but who's will it be?  We'll be bringing you a full chip-count by the break in just fifteen minutes.  Craig Sweden just won a large pot on Table 1, where he and Marvin Bubel are hoarding plenty of chips.  Danny Laming has upped the level on Table 4, and is raking in small pots, while Chaz Chattha took a bit hit to his stack just now on the feature table after his Q-Q was all-in and covering his enemy's stack with A-T.  the flop came A-A-4 (mildly disastrous for Chaz), with the turn bringing a queen!...and the river a TEN for the triple suckout.  8k and a dream at 100/200 for the Hit Squad legend...

We have £36,000 in the prize-pool already, with late registration still open until around 9.15pm, and re-buys now an option here at the Cromwell Mint Poker Casino. 

That option has been taken up by Albert Sapiano, who got as far as 'calling for his car' before deciding a second bullet was worth loading into his blunderbuss!   He's back in and on the newly-formed Table 4.  In a row, we have the following four players:

Danny Laming, Sam Patel, Joe Laming and Albert Sapiano.  That's a combination scientifically proven to build pots and provide great drama. 

Elsewhere, on the feature table, you've probably just seen Romano Pizzo get going in a big pot.  There is incredible action in the next twenty-five minutes on the feature, you simply have to tune in!
