I think Dana may be losing it by the way...

She just cracked the pun "Tony Fellone is a-gone-eh" whereas surely if you were forming some sort of contrived pun out of this poor fellow's name then an Egon Ronay rhyme is a pre-requisite.

Perhaps integrating "come-what-may" seamlessly into some sort of humourous rhyming couplet is in order.

If push comes to shove, perhaps bidet could be worked incongruously into a comical verse.

I refuse to accept the brutal shoving of a square box into a round hole that is "Tony Fellone is a-gone-eh" though.

NO DANA NO!



Scuse my ranting...

Chip count for Tony Fellone please.

0

Although I was unable to get a photo of him before he wandered off in a haze of dejection, I can report that Mr Fellone looks undisappointingly a little like a sharp-suited Prince Humperdinck from the Princess Bride.

Paul Jackson -- 27k
Local boy Anthony Kennedy -- 22k
Ved "Vince" Madan -- 12 or 13k
Des Jonas -- 19 or 20k
Essy "Eliminator" Jahanpour -- 7k
Andrea Gough -- 12k
Ian Woodley -- 18k
Mohammed Hussain -- 17k
Ash Hussain -- OUT
Surinder Sunar -- probably 15k unless he's hiding some purple chips that I couldn't see.

Meanwhile Trevor Reardon is a GONER at the hands of Marc Goodwin. Didn't catch the whole hand, but there were two Nines and a Ten on the board, with Trevor Reardon holding and Marc Goodwin holding . The mutters of "unlucky" as Trevor left his trademark double backwards chair arrangement to fend for itself suggested that the money went in before the Tens filled up, but it might have been more a you're-never-getting-away-from-that "unlucky".

As I join Red Dog's table, I find Red-Dog in the middle of a tough decision, the action looks as though(and this is the best I can reconstruct it) Chili has raised to 1500 or so, Red has re-raised to 5k (or possibly BY 5k) and A. N. Other has reraised allin...

Red with 18k back has already been dwelling over the decision for 5 minutes or so before I arrive apparently and it is a toughie as he has Q-Q..."What would Micky do here?" he wonders aloud, before being told the answer by the table. "The right thing!"

Eventually he passes "good fold" says Micky, "He's got AA or maybe KK..."

Chili says "hmmm, I think he was just going to flat call my raise until you got involved", perhaps implying he may have had a few other hands there and then she looks up with a cheeky expression as if she knows she is stirring things up a bit!

"If it's good enough for Micky, it's good enough for me" says Red Dog, happy with his decision, but bemoaning the fact he had just got back to average before he lost a chunk on that hand...



The blinds have just risen to 400 800. There are 43 players left and carnage is about to ensue. You have my word.

I'm out, completely card dead but found an Ace and pushed my shortstack in. All about timing this game, A-K and K-K behind. Got protection, but no Ace came.

I THINK I think I think until the end of this level. It's getting late. Hope the bar's not shut...

Stuart Rutter and David Lloyd just played out a BIIIIG pot.

David Lloyd raised to 2.5k (we are 400 800) and Stuart shoved for 30 odd K (at least that is what I'm led to believe...)

David called for all his chips with A-K, whilst Stuart showed  J-J.

The board came 7-5-8-6-K!

The river coming to David's rescue swinging a 50+k coin flipped pot his way. This pot was worth about double average as we stand so that is one monumental coin flip to win or lose.

After the hand, Stuart looked understandably deflated and dejected, and on hitting the King on the river, David couldn't help but let out a massive "YES" and pump his fist. He immediately apologised to Stuart for this outburst. Unfortunately I didn't have the camera with me to capture this moment of utter elation from David and contrasting abject disappointment from Stuart.

He still has about 6 or 7 k after the hand though so all is not lost and he is not out. Keep the faith Stuart!



There are about 15 minutes left of 400 800 before we reach the heady heights of 500 1k.

Saw a pretty big hand that's left Surinder Sunar a wee bit short.

On a flop, Surinder bets 500 and Anthony Kennedy calls. They both check the turn, and Surinder bets 1200 on the three diamonds river. Anthony makes it 4k. There is some mulling, and Surinder calls. Anthony turns over . "Is that good?" He sounds shocked as Surinder nods and looks at his cards like he's going to muck. "I'm shocked." Surinder looks uncomfortable and eventually shows his , I'm not sure why. He's down to maybe 13k now.

There could have been violence between Segal and Anthony Nicholls, but in the end there wasn't.

The board reads and Anthony bets 2k; Mark calls.

The turn is the and Anthony checks before it's out of the deck. Segal bets 2k. Says Nicholls: "For 2k, I've got to call." And he turns over K-J. "Errr..." says Segal, and turns over K-J. Much hilarity ensues. Nicholls says he would have folded had Segal bet more, and everyone believes.




Oh actually I like this photo more:

Des Jonas is OUT - he raises preflop only for Marc Goodwin to re-raise him. They agree that Des is all in, and they race that classic classic race:

Des Jonas -

Marc Goodwin -

Board -

And with some gentlemanly backslapping and "nice hand"-ing, Mr Jonas is leaving the building. Marc Goodwin has soooo many chips now, in very tall, very leany easily-tip-overable stacks.

Just to clarify, we are playing 30 minutes of the 600 1200 level before the players retire for the evening.

It looks like Ian Woodley and David Lloyd have retired already as I noticed them hightailing it out of the casino early...



David Colclough just played out a big pot. Anthony Nicholls limped in for 800 as did Arulmaran Sivaguru and David Colcough also limped on the button.

The flop came down an all red  two hearts.

Anthony confidently bet out 2k, which was called by Arulmaran. Dave adjusted his hat slightly, before picking his chips up and pushing them purposefully over the line, announcing himself ALLIN!

It was about 12k more to Anthony, who was nursing multiple large stacks of chips that  must total in the region of 50k or so...

...and after a long dwell, he CALLED, and Arulman seemed to unnecessarily dwell behind him, given that he had time to make a decision during Anthony's dwell up.

EVENTUALLY Arulman folded, Anthony shook Dave Colclough's hand and the cards went on their back.

for Arulman, top pair, eight kicker.

Ah for Dave Colclough for top pair, four kicker and the nut flush draw...

a Two Clubs Turn followed by a...

river meant it was time to do some...

...and Dave stayed in the tournament...


coming up are final chip counts from the day...



Eventually after a long pause
