I knew that side-by-side Romanello and Soxy would create action - raise, re-raise, re-raise all in, and Roberto's was up against Chris' .  The board brought a King but no hope for the nines, and so the Mouth is OUT, while Soxy's count rose to 80k...

Ryan Fronda, whose determination in the face of short-stackedness is what won him that last Luton title, has solidly increased his stack to one which feels no all-in pressure yet, and gives him the room to make more moves.  He's not willing to risk it all on a gamble, however - having raised to 10k, small blind Chris Bruce immediately pushed all in and left Ryan considering whether 75k (a pretty even match-up to his stack, in fact, a bit more) was worth calling with his hand.  As he passed I saw a , so I think the hand which knocked out Roberto was laid down by Ryan...

Interestingly, Nick Slade piped up saying if Chris hadn't done that, he would've, seeing as he'd just passed Jacks to that rather large bet...

Stephen Millar has snipered one of the few Mateyboys.

vs

two spades

------------------

Over on the neighbouring table...

John Conroy has doubled up with outdoing the of an understandably disgruntled Ross Boatman. Ace hit the Flop. 65k pot puts Boatman down to 85-90k.

------------------

Damian Evans has also bitten the dust, his A-Q all-in preflop failing to bad beat Beever's Kings. 7-3-2-J board with an emphatic King hitting the River.

Ash Hussain is OUT.

He raised from the button with K-J (overbet according to Paul Moss) only for Peter Evans to find A-Q on the Big Blind and move all-in. Ash called for his remanining chips and Flopped a King, but lost out to an Ace on one of the later streets.

Huge hand finishes off the pre dinner break level -

Paul King raises under the gun to 9,000.  Early-mid position Dan Carter thinks briefly, then calls.  Button Alan Mclean then moves in for around 40k!  Paul King, who'd originally thought he'd just been called in two spots since Alan's chips were only flirting with crossing the betting line, had a think, and then called the extra 30something000.  Sneaky Dan Carter then re-raised himself all-in, another 29,500 on top of Alan's bet.  Paul calls. 
The bloggers speculate, "AK, KK/AA and QQ/JJ."
Dan Carter speculates, "AK KK and QQ."  (OK he's got an advantage).
Dan showed: 
Paul King showed: 
Alan Mclean showed:  two spades Two Clubs

Flop:  Two Diamonds , Turn and River and sneaky Dan Carter sees his giant pot get split, with 120k going to lucky Mclean while his side pot alone was 60,000.  Paul King has lost the lead...

Ryan Fronda is OUT.

I only caught the hand as the chips were being moved into Chris Bruce's direction, so I can only assume that the hand went as follows:

Ryan raised pre-flop with Sevens, Chris Bruce called from the Big Blind with J-3. Flop came 4-3-J, Chris checked, Ryan moved all-in and Chris called. Q Turn, T River.

-----------------

Scott Dixon has doubled up to 80k. Kings v Queens.

Alan Mclean's run holds as he quietly sneaks into the lead with 182,000, inflicting an outdraw on Paul Rayner to do so (knocking him out).  Mclean's was all in preflop against Paul's , spiked a Queen, and now he's dangerous to everyone else on his table, and liable to gamble with them.

Elsewhere we've lost Ian Woodley - 30k is now short stacked and he moved in with only to be called by .  No hit for him, and it's to the rail...

...where he can join Nik Persaud, who'd also hit the 30k danger zone, and moved in a couple of times in fairly quick succession, uncalled at first, and then called, when he had 5-3.  Oops.

Play folds around to Ross Boatman on the button who raises it to 12k. Ganesh Rao smooth calls in the small blind whilst Thomas Grundy, in the big, moves all-in for around 40-45k.

Ross goes into the think tank and eventually smooth calls.

Ganesh, who I though might have been calling with something like A-Q, also had a think or two, but finally opted for the fold.

Ross showed , Grundy revealed

Board = meaning Boatman is lucky to get away with a split pot.

A few chip counts (got overexcited by that Mclean hand and had to run back before finishing)

Brian Johnson     147,800  (I thank him for his generous gift of Red Bull during the dinner break)
Paul King             85,400
Craig Owen         74,300
Dan Carter          68,000
Reyaaz Mulla        30,000
Jac Arama           86,100
Alan Mclean         182,000
Steve Gibbons      64,100
Mark Herron         83,000  (although I hear word he may have more after winning another pot)
Paul Moss             70,000
E. Bowker            156,000

Looks like these are the current chip daddies:

Alan McLean -- 172,500
Mohammed Shafiq -- 171,700
Brian Johnson -- 152,400
Chris Bruce -- 152,100
Elliott Bowker -- 144,800
Joe Beevers -- 138,500
A Mackay -- 127,400
Paul King -- 114,400

After grinding away with a Mickey Wernick-esque short stack, Reyaaz Mulla has finally bitten the dust with A-J vs 3-3. Ace on Flop, 3 on Turn, missed 9 outs for a flush but missed.

---------------

Paul Moss is also pushing up the dasies.

A-9 vs. Mackay's A-K

Des Jonas doubles up (with a little help from a one-card flush draw...): 
Three players get to see a flop - a raised pot from the 6 yellow chips lurking in the middle.  Tony Dicesare checked, Bowker checked and Des Jonas checked.
Turn:   Now Tony bets out 18,000, fold from Bowker, while Des moved in pretty quickly.  It wasn't the best time to try to push Tony off the hand, as he held and called quickly, while Des showed .
River:    and it saved him, while putting Dicesare back below the average.

Toni Dicesare is OUT.

Bit unlucky really, had his Kings cracked by Des Jonas's Ace Queen, River brought four to the flush.

That put him down to just several k, and he departed soon after.

are they playing down to money / final / closeing ? i presume they comming back tommrow ?

They are playing until 3am (well, the end of level18) OR until the final Nine players are reached.

Tomorrow will start anywhere between 2:30pm and 5pm, depending on how many they bring back.

"crapshoot!" cries Table 3.

"This is ridiculous!" exclaims Ash Pervais. "We play like this in a £20 rebuy."

"Can we not pull the blinds back?" asks Brian Johnson.

With blinds at 3/6k, lots of people are complaining about the structure saying that it's becoming an pre-flop all-in fest.

Ian says he can't stop the clock, but they may do something about the blinds after the next level.

The levels went:  600/1,200 ante 100, 800/1,600 ante 200, 1k/2k ante 200, 1,500/3,000 ante 300, 2k/4k ante 400, 3k/6k ante 600

The antes being so high and rising with every level has made the cost per round so high that everyone from the short stack to the chip leader has been complaining (RED-DOG actually predicted this exact scenario on Day One).  They've decided to freeze the antes at 600 until the end of the day, and review thereafter...
