Yellow - 25
Black - 100
Red - 500
Green - 1000

I think...except those are DTD chips, not Grosvenor.

Ryan Fronda is out, David Laronde's 9-9 was too good for the Luton pro's A-8.

Also gone is Mick McBag, he moved in for 10,825 over the top of Surindar Sunar's UTG raise with . Sadly for the McBag fans, Surindar duly counted out the chips and dropped them into the middle revealing Kings which duly held on the Two Clubs board.

Snoopy then arrived wondering how Mick had gone out, I told him how it had gone down and the non-plussed Brummie beagle said, "Oh he should have folded because Surindar had kings, you see you don't want put your money in with worst hand..."

Oh Snoopy, the king of hindsight...

Meanwhile, big hand for Kevin O'Leary betting 1,600 on a two spades flop, J Byrne check/raised to 5,000 and O'Leary instantly moved all-in putting the emphasis back on Byrne. He agonised for ages before eventually folding, but it's hard to see O'Leary having a made hand here given the speed of which he moved in, as surely he would've have thought about the best way to get the most chips in if he wasn't drawing.


Hmmm...I wouldn't be so sure about that, you never can tell with him...


Surely you think for a few seconds at best with a made hand as opposed to instantly moving in? Although moving in with an absolute monster that quickly with no thought against intelligent thinking players would be an excellent strategy.

Here's Pete Linton's effort from earlier on:



What values do these colours represent?

Yellow = 25
Black = 100
Orange = 500
Green = 1000

Thank you, I'll be here all week.

10 minute break, then 20 more minutes of action then it'll be time to bag 'em and tag 'em.

Obviously I've no idea what he had in this hand, but as far as Kevin is concerned I wouldn't rule anything out Cool

As the action was rather lack-lustre, I thought it might be interesting if I reported a hand from each of the remaining four tables, whether it was a big pot or a small one. It was a mixed bag in the end:

(1) Without hesitation, Roberto Romanello moves all in under the gun for a total of 9,000. Just two seats along, Ash Hussain peeks down at his cards, and makes the call in equally quick time. The action then passes around to Andrew Taylor who sniggers to himself, places his head in his hands, and folds a hand that I imagine was A-Q, T-T or something of similar, but likely inferior strength.

On their backs, and Roberto is in trouble, his in need of assistance against the of Ash. The delivers, but also gives Ash four cards to a Broadway straight. "No jack no king," demands the Welshman as a hits the turn. Breaths are held for the river, but it's another blank, the pairing the board and giving Roberto the pot. Ash, meanwhile, is visibly frustrated/gutted, and will now have to try and work his 20,000 stack back up to what it once was.

(2) No such drama on the neihbouring table. Sid Harris raises it up to 2,600 from utg+1, and everyone folds.

(3) The same applies with the next hand. With the action folding around to Lawrence Gosney, the bracelet winner makes it 2,500 to play from the cut off and watches as everyone folds. Although the speed of Lawrence's fold and the facial expressions of the other players suggested that this was a regular occurrence, Lord Gosney did indeed have the goods as he kindly reveals an .

(4) Finally, on the last hand before the ten minute break, Jerome Bradpiece raises to 2,100 from early to mid position, Bill White makes the call one seat along, and big stacker Mohammed Shoahebe passes on the big blind.

On the flop, Jerome leads out for 3,100 and Bill quickly calls. A on the turn causes both players to pause, but ultimately both players check. Come the river, Jerome once again pauses briefly before checking, but Bill is less hospitable, betting out 6,500. Clearly tortured by his decision, Jerome mulls over his options momentarily before making what appears to be a reluctant call. In the end, he was right to be reluctant, as Bill shows for the turned trips whilst Jerome simply mucks.

In the aftermath, Jon Omara, possibly not realising Jerome had just lost a pot, asked how much he had. "Eleven thousand," sighed last year's Walsall GUKPT winner, "but I just gave away 6,000 I didn't have to."

Jerome Bradpiece went out just before the end, from the button into Justin Devonport's , the board proving particularly cruel:

Sid Harris doubled through Surindar Sunar with Kings against Nines, but I'll leave the fun final hand to Snoopy...

See you tomorrow at 2pm and the return of Womblecam!!!

Well, it took right up until the final ten minutes to stumble upon what I would declare as the 'hand of the day', but it was worth the wait, if only for the endless banter that ensued throughout the hand.

The hand in question involved two of the chattiest players remaining in the tournament, Roberto Romanello and Liverpudlian (I think) Michael Humphries. It was Michael who commenced the action, raising it up to 4,000 preflop. As the play passed around to Roberto in the small blind, Michael pulled down his hood in true Phil Laak fashion and concealed all but his eyes like some form of poker ninja.



Without too much hesitation, Roberto made the call and the two players saw an flop. As soon as the board was dealt, Roberto peered down at his chips, grabbed the bottom of his two columns and confidently slid his remaining stack across the felt.

"I'm winning, definitely," boasted Roberto as Michael rose from his seat.

"I might call just to bum you," joked Michael, much to the amusement of everyone watching. "I've always wanted to bum a Welshman."



"I knew you were going to do that," he continued. "I need any any ace, king or jack."

"You can't gamble on that," pleaded Roberto.



"Has anyone got any lube?" inquired Michael.

"The masseuse might have some," added Ash Hussain, who had otherwise remained content to watch on in awe.

The mood suddenly went serious.



"How much is it?" asked Michael.

"13,600," replied the dealer after counting the Welshman's stack.

"Is it that much?" said Roberto, perhaps feigning surprise. "Whatever happens," he continued, "I like you, you're a nice guy."

Before Roberto had barely finished his compliment, the chips were in and Michael had called.

As Michael revealed for ace high, Roberto chuckled to himself and shook his head. "Oh no," he said as he tabled an inferior fingers-caught-in-the-cookie-jar .

The crowd held the breath as the dealer popped out a harmless turn, some perhaps devilishly willing out a nine so they could be entertained before hometime and witness the sickest of bad beats. Michael's eyes were fixated on the felt.

As if in slow-motion, out it came, a on the river. The crowd gasped.

"Ship it!" exclaimed Roberto as he high fived his neighbour, the smile surely requiring a plastic surgeon to remove. "Sorry mate," he added.

Taking his beat like a man, Michael remained cool and simply concluded, "I still have chips, I told you I'm a shit player."

What a hand! Roberto is now dangerous, but don't count Michael out. He took his beat well asnd still has enough chips remaining to mount a decent challenge, although the wounds from the seven on the river may take a while to heal.

The very last hand of the night goes to Dewi James, who finds ACES and talks Raymond O’Mahoney into calling his all-in preflop bet of 15k.  “If I had AQ, I’d call!” says Dewi.  Raymond calls holding pocket 66’s.
