Oooh oooooh, but looky at this!

Doc raises it up to 130k from the button and Hassan passes. Big blind Colin Young, however, examines his cards, and announces, "I'm not passing this time. I'm all in." A nod from Doc and the chips go in.

Doc:
Young:

Board:

Thus Doc Dipak Makawana finishes in 3rd place, winning £10,790. Well done, that man.

We continue heads up in this entirely deal-free tournament, Colin Young with a 2:1 chip lead over Hassan Irfan.


Doc:

Doc limps in on the small blind, not the first time he's done this, and Hassan raises in the big blind - not the first time he's done this either.

However, while Doc folded to a raise previously, this time he calls Hassan's all-in raise, and they're on their backs.

Doc: Two Diamonds
Hassan: well ahead with

Board:

Unbelievable. Split pot.

Mr Hassan Irfan. Largely took the photo so my mum can see how much he looks like my little brother.

...And as though the players have suddenly realised that they have homes to go to, suddenly the chips are flying into the middle like little round lemmings over a cliff of prudence.

Hurrah!

Hassan Irfan raised to 180k utg, and big blind Lawrence Gosney possibly raised all in or possibly called, depending on how many chips Gosney had. It's a weird one. In fact, I'm suddenly unsure that I got the right end of the stick on this, but Gosney was definitely the big blind... Anyway...

Irfan:
Gosney:

Board: Two Clubs - oh, the many Gosney outs! -

The wasn't one of them, and Lawrence Gosney is OUT in 5th place, winning £5,679.

Players are on a short break. A nice valet is bringing me coffee. All is well.

Has Anything Interesting Happened?



....






.....

Yes!


Paul Newman shoved from the button and small blind Lawrence Gosney folded. Said Hassan Irfan in the big blind, "You're playing with FIRE! Actually I don't know what I've got. Hope it's something good."

He looked at his cards.

"I call."

Newman:
Irfan:

Board: three clubs two spades

Thus Paul Newman is our 6th place finisher winning £4,259!

Hometime creeps ever closer! Commiserations, Newman fans, it was a cool hand but not cool enough. That was some dance, kid.


Not sure what's up with Colin. Or the railers.

Has Anything Interesting Happened?

Well, not really. I thought a hand would get interesting when Paul Newman just limped in in mid position and saw a Two Clubs with blinds Steve Jelinek and Colin Young, but as it turned out they all checked and Young took the pot with a 100k bet on the turn.

The rather talkative Hassan Irfan has I think not quite been given a warning but gently upbraided by the TD for, I believe, trying to hurry someone into calling an all-in raise (the person in question folded in the end).

At one point Lawrence Gosney piped up, "We're all pals, why don't we take 11 grand each and go home?" which elicited some laughter at the rail but I believe he was very serious about it. Bit my tongue not to express my approval of this plan. Said Hassan, "If it'll shut you up, I'll do it." Gosney fell silent, but it's No Deal and the game continues.

Why don't they start earlier on a saturday? When I got back for day 2 today I was knackered, glad i didn't get deeper in that sense Smiley

We only had 6 hours' sleep as it was, what with the email that Floppy got telling us to go to the wrong hotel and all. 3 day event ftw!

Oh, I only just saw that you wrote Saturday and not Sunday. Actually what day is it now? Does anyone have any Pro Plus?

Who was 9th ?   

I must have missed that post.

Sunny. We posted it. Maybe it got moderated. Smiley

Ooh ooooh, it looks like action to me!

Frazer Beattie moves in from the button for 167.5k, and with the minimum of fuss he is called by Doc in the small blind.

Oooohh, the big stack's well ahead!

Beattie:
Doc:

Flop:

Doc's ahead.

Turn:

Wah, suddenly Beattie's ahead!

River:

An improbable chop, and we continue.

Incidentally, during my time final tableside in the past half hour so, I have discovered that someone on or near the final table is suffering from really bad gas. Too many DTD burgers?

Incidentally, this is what they're playing for.

Shiny shiny, shiny bits of plastic...

Hurrah, short stack triple up! What could the updaters possibly enjoy more at 1am with 8 players still left in?

No, no, bitterness aside, Mr Peter Renkel has just now tripled up his micro-microstack.

All in with a sigh for just 39.5k (not even a min-raise) in mid position, he got himself called by both Hassan Irfan and Frazer Beattie, who proceeded to check down the board.

Board: three clubs two spades

Irfan:
Beattie: (suits the product of my imagination as I didn't see them)
Renkel:

Onwards we go 8-handed...

It folds around to Steve Jelinek in the small blind, who shoves to cover big blind Colin Young. After a mere moment's face-pulling, Young calls all in.

Jelinek:
Young:

Board: an ace-free

Young up to 400k, Jelinek down to 240k.

hopefully some action soon players out and a deal?any cheesecake left?im starving:)

Actually, weirdly, no. The kitchen has announced that they are out of, not only cheesecake, but also chocolate fudge cake. Ice cream only for dessert, I'm afraid.
