Neil just announced Alan Mclean and M Sheridan just butted heads in a big pot...chipwise obviously, no nuttage was involved.

Well no nuttage unless you count the fact they were both holding A-A preflop...

No worries, it will be a chop and the dealer seemed keen to chop the pot preflop but was soon set straight.

The flop came down with 2 diamonds, opening a small window for a bad beat opportunity. The turned diamond opened the window yet further and the final river diamond jammed it right open with a crowbar, allowing Sheridan's aces to jump delightedly through whilst the diamond-less Mclean was left with that empty, dejected feeling big bad beats cause.

I would guess he was feeling something like this...

Another bad beat, although probably not depressing on the scale of going out with Aces to the rest of the Aces, has befallen Mr Eamonn Connolly. All in with KK up against the apologetic handshakey gent with him below, handshakey man spiked a third Six for the devil's own hand. Funny how often that happens.

Jen's table has just witnessed a very long hand.

There was a raise preflop and Matey O'Boy 1 was seen betting 7.5k out on a board before being greeted with an allin push for around 30k or so by Matey O'Boy 2.

Next began a long pause that seemed to span millennia...

Jen loves a in the middle of a hand and can be seen showing great interest in proceedings during Matey O'Boy's mental deliberations...

Any news on Michael Muldoon?

I'm afraid he's OUT - I found him lurking by the tables, trying to steal a chair from which to observe proceedings. He button-raised 3600 with and the lady on the big blind called and then checked the T-6-3 flop to her. He bet out 9k and she moved in for 25k - he called, and was smacked in the face by her Aces.

Just for the record in that previous hand, the hand climaxed excitingly WITH...............................................

.....a fold from Matey O' Boy.

A triple-up for the below gentleman. Somehow finding himself up against the pocket Deuces of Blazing Aces owner Dermot Jacobs and the pocket Tens of another player, his mighty, um,  took the pot when the board came down  three diamonds .

I think at least two of them were really short.

10 minutes remain of the 800 - 1500 - 100 level before the players will be breaking for 30 minutes or so to grab some munchies and rest their weary brains.

74 of them remain, the average is 55,743 and Jen and Snoops remain well stacked as the tournament goes into its final stages. AndrewT and Tikay are also still in, as is Snatiramas. We'll see if we can get some interesting tales from them shortly.

After the players resume from the break we will move to the 1k-2k-200 level.

Barry "DaveShoelace" Carter is OUT. He won't tell me how it happened ("oh, you don't want to hear about that"), but I have a very sad photo of him crying to his friend the Rail. I would say hard luck, Barry, but he won't tell me how he went out so possibly it wasn't particularly hard luck... Sorry anyway, man.

Wormster is OUT and he's very depressed.

Only kidding! I mean, he is out, but he doesn't seem to upset. He said he only had about 25k and he raised utg with K-T suited. It folded around to the small blind who went all in. Apparently he'd been doing that a lot, and Wormster didn't feel he had enough to fold, but this time the small blind had Jacks and knocked him out. He's really enjoyed it though, and is proud of an impressive comeback after slipping down to 6k early on yesterday. He feels like a champion!

McLovin is OUT. All in before the flop, his  up against Brian O'Keeffe's .

Board - two hearts

Brian O'Keeffe is looking good, but it's bad for the no-longer-playing McLovin. It's really bad. In fact it's superbad.

A HUUUUGE vastalicious hand has just catapulted Jen back into the chip lead, although she sadly had to take out AndrewT to do it. I think she's on about 190k now. Junglecat has details...

As Dana told you,  Jen has just played out a huge hand with AndrewT...

With the blinds on 1k 2k , Jen raised to 6k on the button and Andrew called with from the blinds.

The flop came out two spades.

Andrew led for 8k and Jen called.

The turn came a three diamonds.

Andrew checked and Jen bet 14k. Andrew sensed he could push her off here and check raised allin to 42k in a brave move.

Jen had a tough decision here but she made the call for the additional 28k, partially no doubt as she had very good chips, with .

It held to leave Jen massively chipped up, and the clear chip leader with 190k, and Andrew joining us on the rail supping a pint. He was philosophical about his exit "I feel I played well over the 2 days and was pretty happy with how I played the hand against Jen but she made a great call."

Well done Jen, and bad luck Andrew.

The hand above is an excellent one in my view, played very well by both players. Jen quickly joined Andrew on the rail and told him "I called because you're not a donk..." which was some comfort no doubt!

This gentleman

 Click to see full-size image.


has just been eliminated by THIS gentleman



His Ah couldn't hit versus the of his opponent on a K-7-8-8-k board, consigning yet one more victim to the rail...

We have 8 minutes left of the 1k 2k level before we are catapulted into the dangerous waters of the 1.5k 3k -200 level...

There are currently 57 players left, the average stack is 71,120 and Jen continues to pwn everyone who takes her on. She's one dangerous lady...

I thought tikay was making an obscene gesture at me, but he was merely trying to indicate that he has 70k.

Meanwhile Snoops seems to have slipped down to 25 or 30k. Come on Snoops! Quadruple up! In the most unbiased way possible.
