guys. We're starting once again at 2pm (1pm GMT).

Blinds are 300/600 with a 75 ante, and there's roughly (until I get the actual number) 340 players left. On the EPT site, it says we are only playing 5 levels today, but we'll get this confirmed as soon as we know.

This is the 'lite' thread, if you want pictures or to interact with us, please go to the interactive thread here:

Judging by the empty seats, Alfred Zaccagnino, Carl Olsen, Dan Glimne and one of the biggest names here today (20 letters!), Jan Christoph Von Halle, have all bitten the dust during these early stages.

Meanwhile, I just witnessed a rather gut wrenching hand which involved two players either side of Harry Demetriou. All in pre-flop, Sebastian Ruthenberg and his Pocket Nines were looking rather vulnerable when Josh Seeburger (Great name! - he see burger, he eat!!!) revealed his pocket Aces, but a J-T-J-8-Q resulted in our first vomit of the day.

Also, The Gecko has doubled up, and I bet he doesn't mind being called Beppe. Moving over the top of Gnuf member Sebastian Riviere, Beppe got caught with his fingers in the (Dusk) till (Dawn) and was forced to show his lowly two spades. However, with Sebastian, who admittedly made a very good call, turned over his , Beppe was delighted to see that he had two live cards, and even more delighted when the board delivered a two on a Two Diamonds board. Had to be the 2!  Grin

Soren Kongsgaard has take a big pot off Guerti Mebah with Jacks v Tens. 4-4-8-6-9 board. The latter is down to 17k as a result.

-----------

Moneymaker and Shipley are OUT.

can you do updates on Mark Pinter table 4 seat 1?

Certainly, he's a dirty stacker, so much so I had to ask how much he had, "24k" was the answer.

Ash Hussain has doubled up with A-K against Ricki Neilsen's A-Q.

Sverre Sundbo is OUT, he didn't want to talk about it...  scared

Nick 'Ripple11' Jenkins has just been moved off Johnny Lodden's table, "He just raised 9-5o hit trip fives and busted some poor guy."

I saw Isabelle in the hallway pre-break - I have to assume the worst - she's OUT...

So is Nick Slade, in pretty dramatic circumstances (100k pot)... A short stack had raised to 2k preflop, and he'd called with the along with the big blind.  The flop came down .  The short stack bet 2k again, Nick upped it to 5k, and the big blind made it 10k...Nick flat called.
His nut flush draw came on the turn:    So in two swift bets both big stacks were in, Nick with his flush, and the big blind with ...  He looks a bit shell-shocked, to be honest.

Has Badgirl managed to worm any chips from Mickey yet?

I don't know about that, but there's been a Legend Double Through...

I think it was Luca Mortarino under the gun who limped first, then Mickey in late position, then Alexander Stevic made up the small blind, George Danzer checked.
Flop:    Despite Alexander and George murmuring about 'keeping it friendly' Luca bet out 2,200 and Mickey Wernick called.  This was enough to get rid of the blinds ("Not against Mickey..." warned Danzer), so heads up for the turn:
  Luca checked, Mickey bet 8k, saying, "It's an overbet; this time I call all-in.  11,000."  True to his word, when he got check-raised all-in he called, showing , ahead of his opponent's .
A slightly tense moment as the Two Clubs rivered.
"Mickey never lies," pipes up Danzer as the young player doubles Mickey through to over 45k.

Richard Strummer has lost a 40k pot with Jacks versus Big Slick, a cruel King hitting the River.

Dave Colclough eliminated John Shipley, A-K vs J-Q, Ace on Flop, Jack on River.

Andy Black (now 98k) knocked out Chris Moneymaker. Andy raised with Q-Q, Chris called from the BB, Flop of K-K-7, no action, Turn 2, Chris bet, Andy called, River 4, Chris bet, Andy out-talked Chris and re-raised. Chris chose to move all-in for another 10k. Andy called, showed Q-Q and Chris mucked. Barry Greenstein is also on the same table with approx 55k"

Arnaud Mattern tackles Chad Brown (not in a physical sense):

Arnaud had raised to 3,600 on the button and limpers (and big stacks) William Thorsson and Chad Brown called.  This is the point at which I would be thinking, "Wonderful."
Flop:    William checked, Chad checked, and Arnaud gave it a 7.5k bet.  William got out of the way, but Chad counted out 25k and calmly shoved it into the middle.  Arnaud still had 37,000 behind, and after a brief consideration, passed with mild to moderate pain.

Good news Steve and Julian. Bad Girl has trebled up.

One off the cut-off raised to around 2.5-3k (I missed this part of the hand) the cut-off flat called and Bad Girl moved in from the button, both had her covered, the shorter moving in and the larger calling.

One off the Cut-off:



Cut-off:



Bad Girl:



Board (with Bad Girl jumping up and down saying "Come a Queen"):

three diamonds two hearts

She's understandably happy now, with around 90k.

Last year's runner-up, Ash Hussain, is OUT.

Stuart Fox raised it up under the gun and Ash, along with another player, made the call.

T-6-2 rainbow Flop, Stu checked, Ash moved all-in, Mateyboy called, and Stuart put Mateyboy in for his last 9k.

Ash = A-T

Stu = Q-Q

Mateyboy = 6-6

Barry Greenstein has been eliminated by Andy Black.

Meanwhile, the enigmatic and highly celebratory Kareem Alsainhati has doubled through (although still only to 15k) his Scandinavian neighbour with vs. on a board. Looked like the spondoolies went in on the Flop.

DTD counts, as they break yet another table (225 remaining, apparently):

Odd Lavik       22,500
Michael Greco  22,000  (now tablemates flanking the Camel)
Richard Ashby  36,900
Dave Colclough  20,200
Dave Clayton    72,000  (despite having just doubled a short stack's Tens with his Button Eights - looks in good shape for a DTD last longer...)


Meanwhile, Phillipe Narboni has been sent packing by Keith Hawkins, betting a missed flush draw all-in on a board of 9-7h-5h-T-6. By this time though, the Camel had made a straight with Pocket Snowmen.

He's nowhere near chip leader now, Chad Brown and William Thorsten just got involved in a HUGE pot. K-Q-9 board, Thorsten had Nines, Brown had Queens. Thorsten is OUT and Chad now has about 290k.

Also out is Patrick Antonius, he ran Tens into Jacks.

Meanwhile, Dave and Andy Black seem to have defrosted over the course of the first few levels - Andy asked me, "What's the leader got?  I don't want to be the chip leader..." 
"I thought that was the point of poker tournaments," I queried.  "No, no..." he trailed off enigmatically.  He had 150k which was in the top five or so, but since that huge hand Homer just reported he's firmly off the potential top spot.  It's all clearly going according to plan.
