Super updates again today Rich - a pleasure to follow.

Very best wishes to Pete and Nick. Both top lads, and very deserving of a big result.

The final tomorrow is in a box overlooking the pitch, converted into a TV studio.

Six players, a TD and the dealer only.

Live streamed onto Huge screens in the Bobby Moore room and to everyone at home with ahalf hour delay.

It will begin at midday sharp.




got a bit of biz to do in the smoke tomorrow so might pop along mate. Do u think the sides tomorrow will get any runners or have they died a natural death now?



The ESPT got 63 runners

The £250 turbo ran yesterday I think

The £1k freezes have been getting 25-30 runners

Place is busy enough, I am not sure but suppose that is likely to be the case tomorrow too...depends who makes the final

people will be down if Peter or Nick make it?

Very tempted, was planning on going tonight but have a business meeting that I can not defer.  Are you about?  I would like to rail Pete if he makes the "June 6".

Pete Linton is up to 9m and probable chip leader

He won a nice pot off Farhad Sayardi with J-8 in the small bind

check calling on 10-2--J-Q

Check check on the K river

Sayardi mucked before Linton even showed


--

I spoke to Pete (who upbraided me for misquoting him earlier. If I did, sorry.)

"This is a life's dream. It's my ambition to be a millionaire before I am thirty"

"How old are you Pete"

"29" comes the reply

I whisper

"Does that mean no deals Pete?"

He gives a slight grimace

"I will play it by ear......"

and none of that is a misquote!


With Alban and Linton having 17-18m of the 41m in play between them it doesn't sound like an early deal is in the offing does it?

Had a funny exchange with Pete at the WCOAP at DTD in April.

Pete won the High Roller, which was an open event, but he was a bit sheepish about the pictures that we take after with the winner & bracelet in front of the APAT banners.  

Fair play though, with a bit of explanation he got into the spirit of it, stood there, smiled a smile and everyone was happy.

Fast forward twelve hours and I spot Pete at the cash desk buying into the main event.

'Hi Pete, good job last night, you back for more?'

'Yeah' says he, eyes scouring levels two or three of the cardroom trying to pick out his seat draw.

'Are you playing this?'

'Yes, should be good, how many players are you expecting?'

'We should make four to five hundred' I say....about to pose a delicate question.

'Say Pete...aren't you a pro?'

'Well, urm....what do you mean by a pro?'

'If you make your money just from playing poker, then we'd see you as a pro and this is an amateur event, so you wouldn't be able to play.'

'Aw, I've driven all the way over here to play, you're kidding?'

'Sorry Pete, we'll get asked lots of questions if you play, as will you at the tables.  The forum will be full of it.'

'But I came all the way across....'

'Sorry Pete'

Sighs as his buy in is pushed back across the counter

....'are there any other games going on?'

'yeah, we have a HORSE tournament just starting now.'

'HORSE?  Great, can I get a seat?'

'Are you a pro?'

Cue the stomp off.....nice guy and I hope he or Nick Hicks wins tomorrow, but I was still giggling a couple of hours later.

Funnily enough he played the APAT HORSE the previous year, must have got in under the radar Smiley

Many of the players are sat/stood under the stairwell close to where we are writing. LOTS of discussion with everyone weighing up options.

Bad for Linton and the short stack really! Think I'd play on in both their spots.

How is it bad for the short stack?
Think i would be happy locking up an extra €100k.
What am I missing?

looks like an amazing event, kudos to rob for seeing it thru,

very best of luck to nick, pete & julian, 3 v nice chaps.

def think the big stacks need to wait it out rather than settle for a decent score, there's just so much up top to share once 2 or 3 handed (if deals are allowed)
