  and welcome back to DTD for day 1b of the Norwegian championships.

Yesterday saw a fiery start to the event, with the 249 runners whittled down to a mere 70 in next to no time. The aggressive play is likely to continue apace today as a fresh batch of Norwegians and scattered homegrown players are deposited within the bowels of DTD.

Many of the big names from Norway will be appearing today including Johnny Lodden, Trond Eidsvig (or as Dana knows him, the future Mr Immanuel) and although unconfirmed as of yet, WSOPE bracelet winner Annette Obrestad willl almost certainly be diving into the event in her calm, reserved but highly capable fashion. Thusfar, the norwegians have been a breath of fresh air, exhibiting an enthusiasm for poker that is in complete accord with our own love of poker. We love em!

We can't wait to see how the day pans out. Will we catch another glimpse of pink hatted, snake trouser man? Can Johnny Lodden put the heartache of recent EPTs behind him to make a serious run at the championship? Will the player base consist almost entirely of players called Jan?

Join us for the 3pm start as we seek the answers to these and other questions. As usual, feel free to fire request for your favourite players at us and we will endeavour to get their chip counts, photos and pass on messages.

It should be a great day. Bring it on!!!!

Today another packed field has found its way into Nottingham's Dusk Till Dawn, basking in the luxuriousness of the club, enjoying copious amounts of alcohol and generally bringing a little bit of laid-back Norway to the North of England.  As well as those already mentioned, among the invaders are Gunnar Ostebrod, Frode Fagerli, Rolf Woods, Henning Granstad, Jan Sjavik, and many others you may know by their online nicks, or not at all...

Meanwhile the small UK contingent bravely testing themselves in the No Limit Hold'em Arena include, today:
Nick Hicks
Ian Frazer
Stephen Holden
Pete Linton
Mad Turk
Sam Trickett
Rupinder Bedi
Chris Bruce
Ali Mallu
Dave Colclough
Lawrence Gosney
Maz Nawab.

Just to let you know the final chip counts have been posted up on the day 1a thread.

Guess who's top of the tree at the moment...

 Here's a few hints for you. He's a nice guy, he runs good, he wins almost everything. That's enough nudges for now, I'll leave it up to thew to decide who it is.

Here's a sort of timelapse peek at what a typical Norwegian weekend at Dusk Till Dawn looks like.  Featured is blondeite InsaneTTM, who is apparently such a keen follower of poker that one of his four computer monitors is monitoring poker fora around the world at all times, including blonde...

He's what he describes as a "Happy Amateur," enjoying the game and happy to come over here just for the craic... he's actually a massive Villa fan too and had somehow already managed to book a trip over here before knowing that the Norwegian Championships were going to be on.  Oh happy coincidence!

So here's what he looked like last night, c. 3am, with the superb added bonus of pink hat man:



And today, extremely hungover, c. 3pm:



Like he says, "Stein by name, insein by nature!"

The Midlands please, in fact Nottingham was known as "The Queen of The Midlands" as opposed to The North where everyone knows it's grim

Just to add a proviso to the above list, it is not complete and a few names will be missing from it.

One name that is there is that of Fran, blondite LittlemissC, whose alcohol hunt last night has become the stuff of legend. She appears remarkably bright and breezy today though considering and was not posing in the slightest bit (LOL) as I took this shot of her looking mean and purposeful. Good luck Fran!
