Colette Murphy has doubled up with A-J, hitting both of those for two pair.

Anna Colley has also doubled up, somehow. Yay, ladies! Also still in is Jen. As Neill Kelly put it:

"Ladies still in are Colette Murphy, from Ireland; Jen Mason, from England; Anna Colley, from Mars..."

Danafish,
Any idea how a young fella by the name of Enda Kendrick is doing? He is a poor student who probably looks strung out at the moment having played until close last night, driving 40 miles, working a half day, driving back and is still punching it out!!
One for the photos as well with his new haircut!!

Yes yes, here he is. No sooner had I picked up the camera, he was all in - versus the purple stripy gent's  . A harmless board later, and they chop. You're right, that's quite some 'do...

We have an ALLIN.

Tony Kendall moved all his chips in preflop with but mistimed the move as he ran into ...

The board proved largely irrelevant and Tikay's Tens didn't improve, meaning he was heart-breakingly out on the cusp of the bubble. Mike Lacey, who has taken over some of the microphone duties fromm Neill, gave Tikay a fitting sending off...

"Say goodbye to Mr Blondepoker, Mr Apat, Mr Skypoker, Mr EVERYTHING, TIKAYYYYYY"

Here is Tikay in his final moments in the tournament..



And here he is receiving the first of many offers of handshakes....Yes Tikay LOOKS like he is refusing the handshake but trust me, that's jsut bad timing due to my amateur photographic abilities. Tikay took his defeat in good grace, and he will tell you on his blog how much he enjoyed this tournament and passed the fun he had on to all around him.



All I can say to Tikay is gg nh wp ul.

Andrew Grimmason (Chub to his friends, says Gary McLovin Clarke) is OUT.

Chub was holding, ummm, Q-4. His opponent - Aces. Oops.

Ollie Boise, or Kelly as he seems to be down on list as though he swears his name is Boise, is OUT. All in on a flop, his  was looking pretty comfortable against his opponent's until, obviously the turn. The river did nothing for him and he's gone.

Brian O'Keeffe is OUT, all in with 9-T against Paddy Tobin's pocket Aces. There was a Ten on the flop, but there was an Ace too, and with no miracle improvement for O'Keeffe, he's gone.

Ok, jsut to clarify how the bubble situation worked...30 players were officially paid, not the 31 I claimed earlier. Slight communication breakdown. Apparently some people don't speak fluent cat.

Anyway, with 30 paid, 31 was the bubble spot but once the last 2 eliminations occurred and we were down to 31 players, the players amongst themselves agreed upon lopping 900 euros off the top prize to give to 31, meaning the bubble was effectively no more and
was over in record time!




In other news, Rob Taylor just double in what seemed to be a 300k or so pot KK v TT.  A king on the flop secured it for him at an early stage and he is now sitting on a very useful stack.



Jen remains on about 140k...They have split the tables into 3 now.

The official line is that they will be playing down to 2 tables tonight, although this will depend I think on how quickly players are eliminated.

Let's see what happens....

Double up for Anna Colley - against Pat Storne's  . No improvement on the 8-K-T-2-5 board. "SHIP IT!!!!"

Also COlin Quarry is OUT in 29th.

Quick update - they will be playing down to final table tonight. Should be out of here in about half an hour at this rate. The exits are happening faster than we can report them...

Colette Murphy doubles up through a gentleman known only as Smurf - pocket Eights v A-Q, no improvement.

Jen Mason has taken out two players in a single blow.

Mike Apollonio moved in, and Mick ROssiter re-raised himself all in. Jen called.

Mike Apollonio - 

Mick Rossiter -

Jen Mason -

Board - Two Clubs

Unlucky, Messrs Apollonio and Rossiter. Can someone else please say Yay Jen so I can maintain my totally unbiased journalistic eye?

Thomas "bomber" Nolan just got his chips allin versus ...er Mr. I'm not sure as he had jsut moved to the table. If anyone can help me out, that would be purrrfect...



Thomas has quite a few chips and in fact had Mr. [you know] well covered.

Bomberman showed 3-3 and the unknown warrior had the mighty K-K...

The flop came a largely uninteresting ...

...But then disaster struck for our mystery player as he was bombed by a 3 hitting the turn, completing the bomberman's set...

He was preparing to leave but a quite fantabulous [for him] KING arrived on the river in the nick of time to give him a higher set...

Here is Bomberman shrugging off defeat with a wave to Blonde's Laxie...

Can we get an update on Hou-Man again? Smiley

Hou Man just moved allin and was called by Jimmy Kiernan.

Jimmy held AK and Hou was making a move with 8-6

The flop came out x -x -x (x being completely irrelevant cards) but a SIX on the turn put Hou Man into the lead, greeted with Jimmy throwing his hands up into the air.

He was rescued by an ACE on the river though! meaning Hou Man was eliminated and Jimmy picks up what could prove to be a crucial pot.

Here are our protagonists in their moments of despair and glory...
