Er, Ben? Is that you? Feel free to turn on the heating if it is you, the switch is in the cupboard in the hallway. If it's not you that's going to make no sense and I'm going to sound really crazy/

Ok, the dealers have shuffled up and dealt! Good luck everyone! The room is filled with the soothing and actually as far as I'm concerned slightly soporific sound of chips being riffled. I'm off to get some photos to perk myself up...

Yes, and I swallowed it whole, like a big, blondepoker-behoodied snake. Mmmm.

Yeah it's Ben. Was debating going to the pub for a bit as I doubt whether too much will happen for a few hours but its freezing, although I'm slightly thawing now. I'll be on and off i guess...

Well, the competition is underway!

We kicked off bang on time at 7.30 pm and after a short while we will bring you a seating plan showing all the players and how they are arranged over the 31 tables in play.

What I can tell you is that the fearless Ms Merton Mason has drawn the same table as Dewi so it will be interesting to see if these two blondites stay out of each other's way or get stuck into each other. There could be fireworks if they do!

Tikay wanted us to let you know he was up to 17k early on. This was 10 minutes before the start of the competition though so quite how he managed this, no one is quite sure...he said he had "nicked a few pots." We are still receiving mixed reports of the numbers. 274 players sat down initially but as late arrivals get here, this is increasing all the time, and an excess of 300 is very likely.

One fascinating question is how long will it take for casualties to fall. On the one hand the players have been given a whopping 15,000 chips to play with, which should ensure they have enough depth to survive quite comfortably through the early blind levels. On the other hand, there defiinitely seems to be a spirit of gambling permeating through the hall, so I wouldn't be suprised to see one or two casualties ( at least!) in the early levels. Let's see how it pans out!

Myself and Dana have taken some snaps of the venue which we will post up shortly. As we work our way round the tables, we'll relate all the interesting tales, thought-provoking hands and give you some interesting pictures as we come across them. Enjoy the update, I've a feeling this will be a cracker!

Good luck all!

Ok, well very early on we have our first significant morsel of information...and it's a cracker!

We were busy uploading our photos when the loud microphoned voice of Neil Kelly boomed out "We have an ALLIN on table 19. A-Q versus....9-2!"

Myself and Dana dropped laptops and cameras, donned pens and pads and launched ourselves into the action. Once we had fought our way through the crowds also rushing over to see what was going on, we foudn the dust had settled and the A-Q had held up against Eddie Stuart's 9-2, meaning he is the first elimination of today. Whilst it may seem an unlikely hand to put all your chips in with, it seems he was crippled in the hand before, perhaps mitigating his play slightly.

Mike Lacey, the Green Poker Joker guru, who seems to know every face in poker is off to a flier. He told us he flopped the nut flush with Ah5h and managed to eke a juicy 3k out of his opponent, who I beleive was Michael Dorin, before Michael mucked the river...

And here are some photos of some well-known blondeites (I insist that it has an 'e' in the middle of it) doing what they do best. Sitting. Smiley

I bet Tikay paid him to be the first to exit to make himself look rocklike...

You'll be delighted to know that a seating plan has arrived! Rod is even now making the assorted bits of paper into a spreadsheet of some sort, which we then shall post up here somehow. There were 274 players seated at 7.30, a little short of capacity, but new ones are appearing. We'll know numbers for sure at some point in the next hour or two.

That's very uncharitable, but not beyond the realms of possibility... Tikay informed us that he was on 17k about half an hour before the tournament started, and claimed 23k a few minutes ago. Let's call it a round 30k for him now, 50k by dinner I should think...
