Down to 16 as Jamie Morris finishes in 17th, winning £2,520...

Very short, he was obliged to move on the small blind with , and Ganesh Rao was equally obliged to call the extra 27k with .  Ganesh sat with his back to the table as the board came down:  and the tables are eight apiece.

Looks like the Final Nine will be reached tonight.

Dan Carter doubles through to aorund 200k.

Joe calls his all-in from the big blind with Aces, but they are cracked by 7-5s and a 2-7-7-K-3 board.

Paul Gourlay is OUT in 16th place, winning £2,520

Peter Evans raised in mid position (a chunkyish raise - 50k+) and Paul re-raised all in from the cutoff for a further 67k.  A longer dwell from the Bandit than one might expect given he eventually called showing , but he found a race against .
Flop:  ("Ace, King, Jack," chants Paul, quietly, even though the latter doesn't help)
Turn: 
River: 

And another 200k drifts into Peter's stack, lifting him to chip leader status once more above Jerome.

Slight slowdown now (honestly, for the first time ever, I am grateful for this).  Jerome gets a "thoroughly deserved" walk in the big blind (blinds now 10k/20k ante 600 so that's nice).

Approximate chip counts from Table Bandit (he has red chips.  20k each.  First time I've seen those make an appearance before a final...or in fact at all)

Shaf                410k
Joe Beevers      176k
Adam Wilkinson  225k
Elliott Bowker    90k
Dan Carter        210k
Des Jonas         180k
Peter Evans      600k

And the other table...

Jerome Bradpiece -- 485,000
John Conroy -- 150,000
Chris Bruce -- 180,000
Craig Owen  -- 175,000
Ganesh Rao -- 180,000
Billy Ngo -- 145,000
Raj Patel -- 320,000
Ian Bowden -- 160,000

If one shorter stack deserves a final table appearance, it is, in my opinion, Billy Ngo.  Knocked to what looked like the point of no return with that KK vs AA hand earlier, he just shrugged and carried on, picking his spots and generally being quite good. 

In the last ten minutes someone looks to have spiked his water with ProPlus or something, or unrevoked his chat ban, as he's been talking it up on his new table.  Just now there was a four-way limp pot seeing .  The blinds checked to Billy, who bet out 20k.  Jerome on the button dwelled for a bit and passed.  "oooh, you got no balls," jumps in Ngo, "Come on, raise me all in," he attacks the blinds, "I'll call, I promise..."  No joy and he shows the , then continues to mutter to himself about how he should have checked and let Jerome bet...

Craig Owen finishes in 15th place, winning £2,880

He saw a K-5-2 flop with Jerome Bradpiece, and when Jerome bet out 30k he moved himself all-in (44k).  Jerome called with T-T, found Craig with A-Q and the pair stood up.

The Hour of the Resteal is Upon us -

John Conroy makes it 33k to go in late position, and Billy Ngo looks at his cards, announces "raise," and some other stuff, but John kind of cuts him off before he can really get going, "I pass I pass..."  Billy shows .  "I never doubted you," said stealer John.  For some reason Chris Bruce decides to tell everyone that he passed A-J to John's initial raise, adding, "I'm not going out with A-J."  Fascinating.

Then Joe Beevers makes it 37k to go (other table) from the cutoff, and Adam Wilkinson pushes in for another 51,600.  They stare at each other a bit, then Adam does a kind of shrug thing, and that clearly made up Joe's mind to pass.

Chris Bruce (who's clearly not a big fan of Billy, and his lightning-speed, low volume chat) just got more than half his chips thusly:

Chris, now short and in all probability tilting like the Leaning Tower, shoved in on the cutoff for just over 100k.  Billy the Kid on the small blind had a decision.  It seems like he wasn't giving Chris' raising range all that much respect - to be fair he was now short stacked... He thought for a bit, mumbled, "I might have you beat."
"Call then," replied Chris.  Billy counted out the call, and slowly self-counted what he'd have left (70k or so).
"I'll get my coat," offered Chris. 
"Call."
Billy showed
Chris showed three clubs

Flop:  two spades
Turn: 
River: 

"I thought you might push with any weaker Ace," comments Billy.
"Well you didn't think about it too cleverly," replies Chris sharply, "You couldn't wait to get your chips in," thus delivering both a rubdown and version of events that must have taken place in a parallel universe.

Sensing that somewhere he might have just made himself look bad, and his opponent better, he then instantly backtracks, "Well it's true I would have shoved there with Q-K etc.  It's a tough one with A-Q."  Magnanimous in victory (on the second take) I dread to think what he would have done if he'd been outdrawn.

The outdraw saga continues in the final 10 minutes of the day (the most recent episode of which started with John Conroy's J9 sneak out of jail against the unlucky AK of Chris Bruce) as Billy Ngo makes his Button double-up-or-bust move with any two.
They were:  called by big blind Ian Bowden with .
The flop and turn changed nothing except giving Ian a pair of Fours, but the on the river brought a stack-crushing blow to Ian and brought Billy back to life.  Again.

The next hand it was autoallin on the small blind for Ian, and Jerome said, "That's a call," as he put in the extra 30k having woken up with .
Ian had , and although the first card out was the , he was not to be granted the escape some of his tablemates have had, and goodnaturedly gave up the ghost.

So Ian Bowden finishes in 13th place, winning £2,880
