1st break on 37k from 15k start. Going back to 300/600 6 card. Number of cards changes every level.

Well home eventually after a few detours/roadworks etc.

After the break we came back to 300/600 6 card. Lost around 6k with a turned nut flush which lost to a rivered house. Down to 31k

Won a small pot with an over pair and straight wrap which no-one else wanted - 34k

New guy had sat down (seat 4) at break with around 70k and immediately hits everything. He is up to 100k quite quickly with a flopped straight and back door flush. Opponent (seat 1) had same flopped straight, Flush arrives on river. Seat 3, then cripples seat 5 who is left with around 3k.

New level 400/800 - 4 card.

Seat 3 (UTG) calls 800, seat 4 folds, seat 5 shoves for his last chips. SB calls, I am in BB (seat 2) with  Two Diamonds not the best starting hand but well ahead of shove range of shorty so I repot to 14k ish (risky, I know). UTG folds and SB debates it but lets it go. Shorty has  three diamonds two hearts. Board is KKXXX no hearts. I pick up a nice pot to go to around 40k.

Next hand I am in SB with  - Seat 4 limps rest fold, I call 400 & BB checks. Three way to flop

Flop is 

I bet 2400 (pot), both players call.

Turn is 

I again pot to 9600, BB folds and seat 4 repots it to put me all in. Without thinking, I push my remaining chips in and immediately realise he has pocket tens.

Sure enough, he rolls over  meaning I need to hit the case 7 on river. No joy.

I looked at the hand as having flopped nuts and improved to a house. I should have thought that I had gone from nuts to 3rd nuts. If I had thought more about the hand, I might have folded or more likely called but Seat 4 was definitely a strong omaha player and unlikely to bluff in this spot.

It was a great evening, but unfortunately ended too soon. On the bright side, I saved the two extra bullets I was prepared to fire.

Unlucky Albus. But at least you can always say you were there when they briefly played a PLO tournie with antes.

Yes, the antes did get a few quizzical looks.

Seat 4 was older with grey hair - it wasn't you was it??

How did you get on?

Table 91 seat 4 to begin with, think I lasted 6 hands on the first bullet. AA8Q v QT98 on T848. Table 101 for the 2nd bullet, 4b allin with bad Aces in the 300/600 6card and did not do a win.

Played on a fun cash game afterwards. Convinced the dealer to let us play a round of 7 card and then 8 card. Also managed to raise blind pre, bet flop blind, bet river blind, get called and do the one card turnover to reveal quads. [  ] all skill.

I managed 5th in this comp. Wish I'd read this first lol.

Bust when I flopped top set on T74 at 4 card vs KK with a flush draw for about 2/3 the chips in play.

Was a fun comp; fast and furious!

I noticed that you had cashed, Ky, well done. It certainly was fun.

I didn't know that you had a profile on Hendon Mob, as I had previously searched for you but the search came up empty! Then I realised that I had searched for you under "Dave Garden's Mate"  Grin

Save the exit hand for Monday.

Played my day 1 on Thursday in Sunderland. Structure is very good, sadly my ability to hit half the deck with two cards to come isn’t what it was.

Sadly, I didn't make it through to Day 2 of the Sizzler.

Got off to a great start winning a 3 bet multi-way pot with  (from SB - BB made 3 bet) on a      board to move to 50k after 3 hands.

Slowly chipped up to 75k with not much 8 7 off, K T off & 6 4. Lost a big pot with A Q v KK on a Q J X rainbow flop to drop to 55K.

Won a race with AK (limp, re-raise) v JJ (short stack on 20k). A on river clinched it. Reach a peak of 89K around end of level 6.

Quiet level 7 (500/1k/1k) and miss a couple of draws to drop to 70k. Raise cut off with  SB & BB call - flop is  Two Diamonds - checked to me. I bet, SB raises, BB calls - I get out of the way. SB has  & BB has . A J wins pot. Down to 65k.

Level 8 (600/1200/1200) Few hands later I have  on button, UTG raises to 4k, I flat on button as BB (just sat down) is already reaching for chips. He raises to 11k and UTG tank folds. BB has around 27k. I re-raise to 30k to cover him and he calls with  on the flop loses me the pot - down to 35K.

Level 9 (800/1600/1600) last level before final break of night. Nick a couple of pots to keep stack at 35k. Last hand before break I pick up  in cut-off. I raise to 4000 BB (80k new to table) calls. Flop is    , BB bets 3000, I raise to 12000, he shoves - I am putting him on AK or A5, although consider QQ (prob 3 bet pre) or 55 (more likely check flop) as possible holdings. I call and he turns over  . Board runs out  .

I can still re-enter but would be coming back with 15BB's so I cut my losses and headed home.

Will need to go back to Aspers to recoup my buyin through the £1/£1 cash tables.
