is moorman still folding to cash ?? Updates plz

He's doubled up his microstack. Still looks pretty tired, no doubt some 20 tabling going on last night.

Up to 40k ish though, he'll have to move again soon...



Stu Rutter has knocked out Des Jonas apparently. The nutter on the march.



Huseyin Yilmaz's stack has vacillated wildly today but he has now been busted, shoving on the button with A-5 and running into pocket threes, which held.



His Raabness may be unwell but he has managed to transfer the chip counts across the ether to us. Thanks Raaby - get well soon!

Note though that the chip counts myself and Snoopy have just put up are more recent than these so will be more accurate.

Nonetheless here are the standings from the end of level 11.

11   3   1103   Leo Kam   153400
11   9   1206   David La Ronde   151900
3   4   304   Paul Foltyn   146400
11   1   1101   Gary Cargill   138200
7   4   705   Andreas Mihail   129600
11   6   1107   Jonathan Martin   122000
1   3   104   Paul Rigg   116900


I thought I got knocked out, better get back up the M1, although I seemed to be playing well by not being theree as I only started the day with 38k and lost most of that to Leo

Apologies for getting your hopes up, but I've just checked and I'm afraid you are out. Bad luck sir. Leo appears to be using your chips well though...

Steve Tucker is out, as is Ian Cox who just this second ran nines into queens.



Also gone is Mark Suddes (please excuse blurry photo - he was twisting and turning like a one legged ferret). Mark got it all in with against the of David La Ronde, but was unable to catch up on an Two Diamonds board.





Although most hands being reported are all-in extravaganzas, players are being given the opportunity to play the streets, as shown in the next hand. With the flop reading , Gary Cargill bet 17,000 and Iwan Jones made the call. The turn came a , and Gary checked, only for Iwan to bet out 24,000. With both players boasting meaty stacks, Gary realised the importance of his decision and thus dipped into the think tank for a good few minutes. Each player remained stoic in posture with both emulating the other with a pensive chin on hand posture. After a while, the Welshman requested the clock, and a one minute warning was given. Within thirty seconds, Gary had made the fold, but was chagrined to see Iwan proudly reveal a surely inferior .

A few cheeky chippie counts:

Dara O'Kearney -- 48,000
Mickey Wernick -- 36,000
Adam Wilkinson -- 73,000
Richard Gryko -- 49,000
Nik Persaud -- 92,000
Sam Trickett -- 64,000
Rob Sherwood -- 260,000
Graham Wheldon -- 130,000
Ian Frazer -- 70,000
James Dempsey -- 93,000
Iwan Jones -- 146,000
Paul Foltyn -- 90,000
Wayne Mardle -- 92,000
Stuart Rutter -- 71,000
Martin Jarvis -- 213,000

Looks like Andrew Bradshaw is out, and there's no sign of Nick Gibson.

In other news, David La Ronde and Paul Rigg chopped the biggest pot of the tournament - both flopped a full house with K-J on a K-K-J flop.
Chris Moorman -- 49,000

updates on flushy moomin and Sam Trickett please.

Sam Trickett has 70k ish, Moomin 45k, Flushy was down to 85k after losing a 70k pot with A-K versus Aces. "I always lose these coin flips" he said.

Then Flushy sees Peter Arrigoni raise from early position to 6k and makes the call from the button.

The flop comes two hearts   . Peter bets out 6k again, which Flushy re-pops to 24k pretty quickly.

After lots of thought, Peter folds and Flushy sweeps up the pot. "I wanted action..... but not off a set" says Flushy. Do you beleive him?

Here he is sweeping up his stack.

Ian Frazer is finding things tough going on his table.

"I've got two nutters on my left (Leo Kam and Sam Trickett) and two big stacks on my left (Rob Sherwood and A. N . Other.) I'm even money to make the break!"

He's got about 65,000 at the moment.



Leo Kam has been a big stack for some time but he has just taken a big hit, down to 55,000, which many of his table will be pleased about.

Here he is, one of the pair of nutters Ian was talking about.

Any idea what happened to Leo Kam's stack?

He lost them just before the break. Apparently they went to Andreas Mihail in seat 10, but I'm not sure how I'm afraid.

Either way, Leo has doubled that short stack up over the last few minutes with A-3 versus Rob Sherwood's 7-7 when the board came 2-6-4-5-K to give Leo the straight.



Martin Green has clawed his way back into the tournament after out-drawing Nik Persaud's A-Q with K-Q. The board came 3-K-5-J-5 to give the Liverpudlian the pot and a newly acquired stack of 75,000.

Moorman jsut shoved his 30k stack into the middle from the cut-off. Pab re-raised from the small blind to isolate and Iwan Jones passed his big blind.

Moorman only had A-6, so was happy to be in a coin flip versus Pab's pocket fives.

A 6 came on the flop and no fives appeared, meaning the Ace on the river giving the moomin two pair was redundant but he doubled up to 60,000 there, Pab reduced to about the same...

Bad luck Pab but go Moomin!



Moorman was happy, so happy in fact he raised the next hand to 8.5k but was re-popped and folded quickly. Undeterred he raised the very next hand to 8.5, only for Iwan Jones this time to re-raise to 30k and again Moorman passed.

17k of his profit down the drain...

2008's resident pwner of the GUKPT tour, Nik Persaud hasn't been able to add to his string of impressive cashes this year as he exited the tournament recently.

Facing a late position raise, he pushed all-in over the top with J-Q and enough chips to make mateyboy pass, but mateyboy had Kings and was going nowhere.

No surprises on the flop mean we lose the bubbly Nik.

"That's just the way it goes sometimes" he added philosophically.

A key time approaching with 34 players left. Yes folks it's that tense-est of moments.....

 
 Click to see full-size image.
time!

32 players are being paid meaning there are two unlucky players who will find themselves potless after two long days of play. Who will be the luckless duo?



One player who has added himself to the list of casualties is our resident PHA expert James Dempsey. David Laronde has caused carnage today and he did the damage to Flushy as well.

He bet out on an A-2-4 flop, only for Flushy to move allin.

He made the call with A-3 and was suprised to find himself in such good shape, Flushy only able to table 3-4 for a pair and gutshot. Drawing for a 4 FTW or a 5 for a split, Flushy missed both, meaning Laronde buffers his ever increasing stack yet further whilst the colourful James Dempsey goes busto and finds himself dismissed to the rail close to the money threshold.

Bad luck kipper.

The show continues...

The bubble is moving along V....E.....R.....Y        S.....L.....O.....W.....L.....Y.

Bring back Flushy!

A quick recap of how the players are faring...

Moorman is enjoying himself having made quite a decent comeback, up to 90,000 now...



Pab is hanging in there with 60,000, ready to drop a few bombs anytime now. He and Moorman keep pointing to each other's eyes in the ever more popular universal sign for "in your eye".



Stuart Rutter is another player who has made a sterling comback. Down to 2k at one point, this has blossomed into an attractive 135,000 stack which he is wielding with pride.

Here is The Nutter himself, poised for action...

Mickey Wernick is continuing to bolster his legendary status, poised for his four hundred thousandth poker cash today, in the mix with 55k or so.

He's even got the masseurs drawing lots on who gets to touch his blessed beard. Looks like the long haired brunette got lucky!



Richard Gryko has been quietly and efficiently going about his business on his table, holding just under a 100k stack at the moment. Not bad sir!

A quick aside from the poker temporarily, Alex Martin took no offence to the comments that his flowery shirt was girly earlier.

"I'm in touch with my feminine side but I'm a real man" he told me butchly, wielding his prada handbag menacingly.

Well I'm not going to mess with him. He might pull my hair!
