Edmonds made it through qualifying at Winnipeg ATP looks like they are showing the matches on there website so might get a chance to see him in action tomorrow

Oh good stuff.  I assume he didn't have to use his protected ranking to play there given he was in the qualifiers for a challenger tournament.  Can't say I'll be tuning in, as quite enjoying watching the lionesses, though suspect you won't have the same enthusiasm.  Don't think there is a time up yet, so might get lucky.

Trigg takes it down for 70k        Nice one bud.

Wow, he won another one not long ago. 

Top bombing.

Nick Cave answers questions from fans on many topics.

Here he discusses how his neighbours helped him deal with grief from his son's death and Love Island.  The best thing I have read for some time.

I have no idea who Nick Cave is but I'll give it a bash.

Nick Cave seems to have been on the fringes forever, never really made it that big.

He did do a somg with Kylie Minogue, off a whole album singing about murder, which might have limited its mass appeal.

Did I tell you I had got myself a wee camper Tom.

Geo

That's great Geo. I can't think of anyone more suited.


Our camper is home made and it's really small so we have to compromise a bit but on the plus side we can park anywhere.

We've had ours almost 10 years now and we love it to bits.

We did two trips this month.

I always take a pic of our parking spots. For those not interested, look away now....

We need photos of Geo's van, love these things.

Can't believe yours is 10 years old Tom, doesn't seem that long since you introduced it.

Flying in the morning, but having a bit of a panic now as being told I need to fill in an attestation form before flying.

Is this 'attestation form' needed now to get boarding pass or will turning up at the airport with NHS Covid pass be enough?

Are you on Virgin?  I think there is a link to it in one of the emails I got

https://virg.in/opXp

Obviously won't work away from Virgin, but assume the rest have got their own ways if you Google.

Can't remember exactly what was asked, but think it was just have you been vaccinated at least twice and have you got proof.   There may have been a question about if you had Covid.

Is there any site offering betting odds on the WSOP main FT? 



Only just seen this, Party were.  FWIW even though Espen won, I think they cocked up and were too heavily weighted to the two chip leaders who were both about 5/2.  I didn't work it all out though, as had stuff to do and they don't lay decent bets anyway.

Eames finishes 4th for $3m. GG

Saw that, he had a good run.  Espen looks very good, but most of the play has been really decent this year.  Duek definitely the weakest player remaining.

Think this is one of the few final tables you wouldn't feel any urge to chop.  Once you have got half a million, your life is already changed?

Even if you had retained 100% of your action, I’m not sure that half a million dollars is particularly life changing.
Don’t get me wrong, it’s a significant amount of money, but even up here in the deprived North, half a million wouldn’t go that far. https://www.rightmove.co.uk/properties/124715798#/?channel=RES_BUY

Hell, there are folks out there that can blow that much on one party. There are probably people on Blonde that may have lost half a million on their BTC accounts this past few months.

Meh, think for most people half a million either way is enough to change their life.  Though I am well and truly South of Stockton I can buy a whole house for half that.  Think I am at the stage of life where I could probably go with £100k.  Also a fair few of these punting 10k are going to have a decent amount already?

Quite suprised that house costs that much in Stockton, but it is a pretty nice house, with a decent garden.  I don't think your average poker wizard needs that much space.

Can we claim Espen as ours?  He was Pads' partner in the tag team, so I have even railed him for a few minutes.

Pads is even his wingman in the winner's photo, think a solid result for the Brits.

BBC Sport at St Andrews

Now, people like to scatter the ashes of their beloved at places they hold dear to them, so understandably the Old Course at St Andrews would be a prime spot for those relatives who had a love for golf.

As I was walking up the side of the 18th, one man took the opportunity to let what I believe must have been ashes into the burn. A tricky manoeuvre to pull off on the sly in the breeze, as the people standing next to him will tell you…

they started day 6 at 2pm vegas time, its now 6.15am out there.

still 3 to go till final 9 , which was the original plan.

how long can they carry on?

playing for such huge amounts of money after 16 hours at the table cant be easy.



I get that, but it one day and have a feeling it used to be 12 til 4am day 1.   

Also my typical Friday is get up at 7 work 8/9 hours then poker 7.30pm to 2am (though can be later).  Suspect a fair few recs with families do similar.  Also rocking up in Vegas to play a 3pm PLO8 is a bit more hardcore (this year I was pretty much up 24 hours in the sat for the 3.5k Wynn main. It just doesn't feel as excessive as Twitter thinks.  FWIW I did fold BB to a limp from SB late on! 

Later today it goes from 10 to 5 which should at least give them some respite.
