phew that was a lot to catch up on!! Great work gang. GL to Andy Black. He was obviously warming up for this game playing the €50 double chance in the Fitz on Tuesday night!! lol

He keeps putting himself in good spots to get a really big score in these events and I hope this itme it comes right for him.


Andy is absolutely dominating his table - with what I can only describe as a fearsome intensity, he raises almost every hand with a kind of routine - grab some 1k chips, cut them in, while throwing a couple more smaller denom ones in for good measure, stare at everyone as they generally pass, and restack the blinds and antes with alarming speed and dexterity.  Then grab some black chips and rotate the top five, followed by the bottom one, top five, bottom one until the dealer is ready to start the whole swift process again.

Just now a young chap in a green hoody (could it have been Andrew Robl?) re-raised his utg preflop raise of 2,400 about another 8k.  Andy called instantly.  They check-checked their way down to the river at lightning speed, and the board stood two spades.  Andy bet as soon as the river was out:  12k.  He was called immediately, and showed a winning .

It looks like his fast-paced, unrelenting aggression inspires quick reactions from his opponents too - not giving themselves time to think about decisions.  He's about as focused as a person is possible to be without setting fire to the baize with the concentration of his stare.

Mickey Wernick raises to 16k, Gavin Griffin (pictured) makes it 36k, Mateyboy moves all-in from the big blind for just 20k and Mickey folds.

"I had Nines!" exclaims The Worm as Mateyboy reveals and Gavin .

Jim Kerrigan is OUT.

8-8 vs. A-T on a T-2-7 Flop. Opponent bet 10k, Jim thought his Eights were good and pushed for around 40k, but was quickly called.

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

Ernst Hermanns, who finished 3rd in the Vienna EWSOP last year, is on 61.5k today.

Meanwhile, Spaniard Francisco Lopez has been eliminated.

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

Noah Boeken is clinging on to grim death, his latest all-in being for around 16k, finally picking up the blinds uncontested when Joe Beevers folded in the big bling, showing a 4 in the process. Noah revealed A-8s and added, "I was hoping you wouldn't have A-9."

Other news, Emille Petit departed earlier today.

Mark Teltscher is very very nearly OUT --

He'd made a couple of all in moves with good timing, in between Andy Black and the guy on his left raising (Peter Dalhuijsen is on that table too and there was a bit of chat between him and Mark, "Do you think I'm playing badly?" "On the first day you were playing awesomely - up to 60k and no hand shown."  "But do you think I'm playing badly?")

Anyway, this time there had been a raise under the gun by the guy pictured next to Andy.  Teltscher moved in again.  Passed back round and the guy goes into the tank, eventually calling for his whole stack with .
Mark shows: 
Flop: 
Turn: 
River: 

Mark is obviously annoyed that such a favourable situation went sour, but he took it very well, shaking his victor's hand and accepting his 300 chips change (they were nearly equal stacks) with good humour. "1000 to 1 I make the final?" he offered, or something like that.
