Chip second with 164,200 is Stuart Nash. I don't know a deal about this guy, except that I see him running well in a lot of decent comps.

Bruno has 155k, & this guy has pedigree, despite being French. Winner of the World Heads Up title in 2001, & plenty of big Finals to his credit. Plays cash at The Aviation Club (which I think he runs) for serious money, I saw him with over 100k (Euros) in front of him several times when I was in Paris last year. Has great table presence, charisma, & is a real class act.

King Richard Ashby, 128,000. Well you all know of Richard, & he'd be a popular winner. Wont sit on his stack though, & will either get a heap of chips quickly, or lose them, he's a "player" in every sense.


Simon Nowab, 108,000. What a remarkable double it would be for The Burnley Twins if Simon could win this, following John Falconer's victory in Dublin last week. Simon finalled in the Vienna EPT, but did not seem to be to play his best game that day. There will be a HUGE cheer if Simon does the bizz today.

More to follow.....

Please give my best wishes to Big Simon Tikay. I am feeling a little rough this morning-must have been something i ate yesterday. Embarrassed I will be going out for the afternoon but I hope Simon does the business.

Jan Boubli, 93,900. A whole heap of podium finishes, mainly at The Aviation Club in Paris, & including runner up in a WPT in Paris a few years back. Must have a great game, though all I saw him do was move all-in time after time yesterday. I bet 5k with QQ, he went "all-in, 40k".....! But he got the chips with his monster AJ, & the guy is clearly fearless. One of a big contingent of French players here this week.


Trevor Reardon, 88,500. Finalled in the Walsall 250 a few weeks back, & went deep in the Walsall Main Event, his AT being scupppered by El Blondie's quad 8's. A lovely fella, whose game is coming on leaps & bounds.

Carmy Banin, 85,000. I just know he's a proper gent, a lovely guy who is much respected, & is Prince Charles brother. Seems to run well at The Vic, where he has gone close twice in biggies.

More shortly......

Whoops, thanks Blue Square, I missed Chris Singh, sorry guys!

Chris Singh, 206,000. Had a huge double up when he outdrew Devilfish's TT with 99. Got 3rd in the Walsall whopper that El Blondie won. This guy will create plenty of headaches for everyone today, he moves in with any two cards, & has no fear of losing.

Does this mean you're not playing the 100er at Notts Tikay, or is Junior driving you up there Grin

Horace Harvey, 88,000. Don't know Horace, but I believe he Finalled earlier this week.

Nik Whiten, 76,900. The "other half" of Notts Rob Yong, & the sole Notts survivor. Easily his best performance ever, & this guy will not yield his chips easily. May need the run of the cards to win as he lacks experience at this level, but he can play. And I must confess I am biased, as he is a good mate of mine, but I really hope he does well today, he is as nice a guy as you could wish to meet. Has a degree in Flower Arranging.

P Murrell, 76,300. Help! Don't know the fella, I'm afraid. Think he's a Vic regular.

Vicky Coren, 74,800. Wow, what a cheer there would be if Vicky won this! Half a dozen finals at The Vic, but this coluld be her biggest poker payday ever. A seriously talented journalist, who has a very sharp brain and a wonderful way with words. A lady in every sense of the word.

Give me about half an hour.
