Junglecat posting on Kev's account now. I get about a bit huh?

Dave Shoelace aka Barry Carter has just played another interesting pot with Anna Colley.

Seeing a 3 way raised pot with her, he led for 2.5k on a flop after Anna and the other player both checked to him.

As the other player in the pot passed Anna commented "That's a gay bet there" and called. The turn came the , checked by Anna, and now Barry said "I'm going to make a masculine check now..."

"No such thing!" laughed Anna.

The river came the and now Anna led for 4.5k, Barry called pretty quickly.

"You shoulda folded there" said Anna confidently, but as Barry turned over A-J for top pair, she re-checked her cards and mucked them. "Rivered me" she claimed somewhat incredibly...!

I'm not sure I beleive her there, do you?

Mike Lacey told me about a completely bizarre hand he was involved in.

Kind of short, he decided to limp in with . As you do. The flop came A-5-6 and it checked around. The turn came another 6 and someone bet 1k - even though there were two callers ahead of him, he called. As you do. The river came a 9, giving Mike the straight. Someone bet 3k - and something snapped in Mike's brain, leading him to believe that he had not in fact made the straight, and he mucked his cards. Fool! There goes the Lacey double up.

The bettor showed pocket Nines for the full house.

Incidentally in the break Jen told me another bizarre hand she found herself involved in.

She limped under the gun with with Aces. Michael Muldoon limped from mid position with, um, Aces. The big blind checks.

Flop - 9-7-3 and Jen bets out 1600. Michael Muldoon calls, and the big blind raises to 5k. Jen re-raises to 10k, and Michael Muldoon re-re-raises to 25k. Jen folds her Aces face-up (ohhh, the restraint!). The big blind turns over 7-9 for two pair.

Turn - 7

River - 7

Leaving the big blind with QUAAAAAAAAAADS!!!! and Jen feeling incredibly, for once deservedly, smug.

Here's some random counts for you, although these will rapidly be superceded by the final chip counts at the end of the day...

First off Tighty is looking somewhat tired now and it doesn't look like he has been involved too much as his stack has depleted to about 17k or so.

Tikay, well ditto really, perhaps looking a touch fresher than Tighty, but a similar stack of 16k or so.

M3boy was a little annoyed when I saw him.

Holding K-K, his blind was raised and he decided to play them slow to ensure a double up. SO he flat called.

The flop came Q high and M3boy checked before his opponent bet out 2k or so. "I knew he had AQ" so I flat called.

The turn though was the A and when his opponent bet out 3.5k M3boy felt sick but folded, leaving himself 10k back...

They've all gone crazy in the last half hour or so - we currently have 163 runners remaining with 10 minutes of play left, blinds at 200/400 with a 25 ante. Average stack is 25,306. I expect at least a handful more exits before we get to go to bed.

Sorry I couldn't be bothered digging out the running aunties picture two levels back, by the way. It's been a long day.

Tightend has just passed a big pair preflop, for the first second umpteenth time in his poker career Smiley

Limping with Q-Q there was a raise behind and Roy Brindley shoved on the button. He reasoneed he couldn't be beating both so passed.

The raiser called quickly with K-K, validating Tighty's pass, and Roy showed that he was at it with his 6-6, which didn't outdraw the cowboys and sent Roy back to his ferrari with his tail  slightly between his legs.

TIghtend commented that he would have shoved to the original raiser's raise so Roy's ill-timed shove actually helped him there...

"I've got exactly my starting stack to come back to tomorrow!" said Tighty. "How is that possible???"

As Neil announced over the microphone..."He's called Tightend for a reason!"

Play has now finished for the night. The only thing that could make me happier right now than the prospect of my Travelodge bed would be the bar being open, but it's not, so I'm going to think about kittens instead. Chips are being laboriously bagged and tagged, so until the chip counts magically reach us by email (thanks!), I am sticking a fork in this update. Oh my God I wish we had food. Back at 2pm tomorrow, coffee permitting...
