after the efforts made to get the updates this would be a cruel demise!

Surely if he still has the leads he can just repeat........................?

sigh

Like I said, I gave him money to get RAC coverage. If he's just spent it all on dog food or something I'm going to have to hit him on the nose with a rolled up newspaper...

Hello, I'm here. My car started, but it's making loud screeching noises, much like when Dana tells me off for being naughty. They seem to come and go, and mainly sound when I'm dropping down in gears, but still, the noise scares me and I wear a tasting-mustard face every time it screeches. Nevertheless, the car seems to run okay despite the noise, and I have indeed made it to the Grosvenor casino for Day 1B of this week's main event. Let battle commence!

Players are now taking their seats and like Linford Christie in the starting blocks, are braced and ready for action, although facing a marathon rather than a sprint. They're probably less endowed too.

They're just going through the new rules now:

(1) The worst hand wins the pot at all times
(2) Dena must tournament direct in a bikini
(3) Updaters must be tipped by the winner at the end of the tournament

And they're off! Well, they're not going off home, or anything, just off, as in started... oh, you know what I mean.

Nevertheless, I required assistance which came in a number of forms. First I found some jump leads courtesy of Pete Leper, but for some reason they didn't work with his car. Then I asked Sam Trickett to help, and he duly drove his car round but couldn't seem to find his battery. Next up was James Akenhead, who drove up next door. "Have you ever jumped a car?" I asked. "Nah," he replied. "Shit, me neither, what do we do?" "Dunno."

Whilst James fiddled around his bonnet looking for the battery (honestly, I bet neither of us could wire a plug either), I searched for someone who had 'the look' (which pretty much cancels out any poker player under the age of 25) and found aid in Darren Grosvenor (click the link and tell me if you agree he looks like a 'car person'). With James and I inexperienced in getting our hands dirty, Darren showed us where to connect the leads, and so eventually we got it going.

How many poker players does it take to jump-start a car?

And within just a few hands, we lose our first man, Keir Ratcliff. With the flop reading three diamonds , all the chips flew in with Mark Wilson's looking to dodge a few bullets against Ratcliff's Two Diamonds. The would have had Wilson begrudging his luck and grumbling about how bad he runs, but the saved his bacon and served up a very early double up indeed.

Ken Wong was also spotted exiting the tournament area. Nobody caught the hand, but it did trigger the tired old gag. "I think that's Ken who's gone, could be Wong though." Groan.

surely the  Two Diamonds had to dodge the bullets as he was in fact ahead?

Roll out the carpet, Roman Chompavic has entered the building and joined the near table. He did offer each player a lump sum to go home so he could buy the title, but nobody showed any interest.



He doesn't look like much, not much at all, but he's the reason there's an update today Bravo Mr Wheldon.

I understand your angle there, but I'm not sure I agree.

We haven't seen him for a while due to personal issues, but he's back, Sir Johnny 'Texas' Hewston back playing the UK circuit and looking to emulate a good score earlier on this week. Now the Charles Dickens of poker, word on the street is that 'Texas' has a book coming out soon, so keep an eye out for that one. Could be an interesting read.
