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.

Oh, unhappiness. Sorry Smoopy, nh ul wp gg.

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.

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...

My friends who have made it to, er, breakfast time or something now with the bizarre late start - we have finished for the day.

We have three tables left; here are chip counts for two of them (Mr Cat coming back with the rest):

Maria Chili Demetriou -- 14.5k
Tom Red Dog McCready -- 46.6k
Zahar Mirza -- 35k
Clive Padden -- 39.3k
David Mitchell -- 58.3k
Joseph Koumi -- 74.1k
Arulman Doc Sivaguru -- 12.6k
Paul Jackson -- 57.5k
Mickey Wernick -- 41.8k
Steve Jelinek -- 34.1k
R Reece -- 39.2k
R Gurnham -- 35k
Marc Goodwin -- 114.2k huuuge
Surinder Sunar -- 25.5k
Ved Vince Madan
Anthony Kennedy
Dave Colclough
Mick Corrigan

Notable among those is Mr Red Dog - after starting the day with an awesome second place finish in the £500 event and then straight into the main event without so much as a cup of tea and then grinding his way through the whole thing, he doubled up last hand with KK against Paul Jackson's QQ, so he's back tomorrow with an incredibly playable stack. Good for you, Mr Red!

Ok, here are the remaining chip counts....

 Jujihar Reehal        21.6k
 Thomas Dunwoodie    6k
 Kuljinder Sidhu        38.1k
 A Nicholls             113.1k
 R Cashman            28.9k
 Ian Helmsley          30.8k
 Martin Cavanagh     18.4k
 Mark Segal             18.8k
 MZ Hussein             21.1k

The players will be reconvening tomorrow for a 3.30 pm start.

As it stands Mark Goodwin and Anthony Nicholls stand head and shoulders above the rest of the field. Can they be caught?

Join us tomorrow and we will see. But for now, thanks for joining us, and we'll see you tomorrow for the thrilling conclusion.
