Morning! We are all refreshed after like 2 hours' sleep and virtually no coffee, and ready for today's marathon 12-hour session.

Neil Kelly has got full chip counts, I believe in a copy-and-pastable format, so they will be up momentarily as soon as I can find him. I do for the moment know for absolutely certain that out chip leader this morning is none other than Jennifer Mason. Go Jen! In a completely unbiased and impartial sort of way. Play should be resuming in about 10 minutes; please stand by.

Well, what a great day of poker it was yesterday. 

It makes it more enjoyable to update tournaments when there are familiar names to follow and the sight of Jen Mason tearing up through the leaderboard rankings kept us on the edge of our seat all the way through.

Also it should be noted AndrewT had an excellent final few hours yesterday after hovering around his starting stack all day, he changed gears as the blinds rose and ended up a very well placed 5th. All the other blondites have enough of a stack to make a challenge.

Full chip counts have been provided by the ever helpful Neil Kelly, and these will follow shortly.


Myself and Dana are feeling fresh and ready after the 4 o clock finish yesterday and 4 hours sleep. We are in no way looking like these fellows...



The action is already hotting up, here are the chip counts at teh start of the day...

Anna Colley, who was the chip leader in the early stages yesterday has had her stack decimated at the start here. Brendan Hartnet (blonde's own Ericstoner) was also involved in the pot...

Holding on a Two Clubs, her chips flew in after an allin bet from Paul Fitzpatrick. Brendan, acting behind, thought long and hard before folding his 8-5. As Paul was allin, the cards were turned over and he was holding for a flush draw and 2 overs.

The turn was the but the river completed Paul's flush, doubling him up and reducing Anna to a mere handful of chips.

The expected craziness of play is already in evidence and awkwardly preventing me from nipping off to the bar for a coffee and some breakfast. Sad  We've apparently lost 17 players already this morning, of which exits Junglecat caught only a few and I caught absolutely none except the ones that helpful blondeites have come over and informed me of themselves - unlucky, guys. There is a vague and probably unrealistic plan to try to get down to final table today, but it looks like it'll be more like three tables by the end of the night, some 12 hours hence. I'm going to have to get that coffee eventually...

Reportedly a hand jsut played out which involved K-K moving in preflop, only to get CALLED by 8-2 off suit for an absolutely stonking 70k pot.

There was only ever going to be one winner of course. 8-2 made the flush naturally...we haven't got  details of the heroic figure who made this imaginative play but we'll see if we can rustle up some more info shortly...

As Dana reported, players seem to be dropping like flies. Although the excellent structure means that the players have plenty of play in their stacks, clearly there has been a group decision by many of the shorter stacks to come along today and either build up a good stack or get knocked out so they can spend the rest of their saturday sleeping/ drinking or whatever pastime they deem most enjoyable.

Mateyboy is OUT at the hands of Nicky Power - I hope the money went in before the flop, because the OUT gentleman was holding A-To and Nicky was holding for a flopped flush.

I joined Snoopy's table to see he had increased his stack.

"Well done dog face. How did you do that then?"

"Had A-K v Jacks. Spiked an ace on the river" replied the languid Snoopy, "he only had about 10k but it was a nice start"

Snoopy points out AndrewT has increased his stack somewhat too. "He's been mixing it up" says Snoopy and he and Andrew share what looks like a conspiritorial grin and I realising this is code for "The naughty little vagabond's been at-it!."

As we chat away, Dave Callaghan knocks out one of the short stacks. Holding As , Dave was dominating the shortstacks allin preflop with .

The interesting flop of Two Clubs complicated matters somewhat though, but the blank and on the turn and river meant there was no outdraw and Dave increased his stack nicely...

Jen update:

She's lost about 8k so far today "by playing badly". Doesn't seem to mind though. She's sharing a table with Irish poker legend Colette Murphy, and they look to be having a lovely time. Colette's on around 45k, Jen's on around 75k.

Amidst all the wanton gambling occurring here, I just want to take a moment out to gauge the blonde general concensus on an important topic.

Is this man, Gary Clarke, who we have dubbed McLovin', the identical twin of the lovable geek from the film Superbad?

We think so, and although he begs to differ, surely this says it all...

Double up for a delighted Laxie (still in, despite me missing her off the Remaining Blondes line-up on page 1). Sitting around all day on something between 12 and 18k, she moved in with pocket Nines and got called by pocket Fives. She's up to 40k now - perfectly adequate with the very excellent structure...
