Dave Colclough finished Day 1 in great shape, 5th in chips of the remaining 37, with nearly $300,000 to the winner, & money down to 16th.

I have not heard a peep from him - don't know if that's a good or a bad thing - but I sure ain't gonna text or call him, that'd be the last thing he needs as he bids for that elusive bracelet.

I have had a breeze round the usual sites, & there seems to be very little info avaiable on the Stud. I might also add, the so called "Live Updates" aint exactly high quality. I do hope we can do better than THAT when we get to Vegas..... I did see one report suggesting he was down to 28k, but no further news on him.

So, if anyone hears 'owt, post it here please.

Thanks Guys.

There's a bit of luck, just managed to get hold of Rhow. (Behave lads).

She says they are on dinner break in the Stud. Dave is still in, but second lowest in chips.

17 players are still in. 16 get paid. 16th gets $10,000-ish.

BUBBLE TIME! Given reasonable luck, he should survive the Bubble, then, I hope, go for it.

Nice spot Ian.

I am staggered how quickly they appear to have gone from 17 players to 12 - but I'm not complaining!

With the antes at $400, & the bring-in at $800, he cant afford more than one mistake or piece of bad luck, but he knows what he's doing, & I am ever hopeful. If nothing else, I'd like him to make the TV table. Once there, maybe he can dance a little, get lucky, & move back into contention. If he does, the others will know they have been in a game.

You at Walsall tomorrow?

is he that good at stud?
Not being cute or anything just don't know, not a game you associate with him.

Walsall............not entirely sure just yet, got the kids and need to look at my finances (still haven't got back the money some scumbag stole from my bank account) though i have a pal who wants to sponsor me but i ain't sure i'm ready for the burden of playing with someone elses money, just seems like added pressure lol
I have yet to decide, though think i'll pop in and say hello

Is he good at Stud?

Handy enough, he had a WSOP cash in Stud 2 or 3 years ago, 16 or 17th as I recall. And he adores playing stud, almost as much as his beloved 6 card Omaha. But he has dodgy mincers these days, so it's not easy to see other players up cards if he is in an "end seat" (2/3, 7/8/9).

Be nice if you can pop in tomorrow & say "Hi". I am sure I know you - well I sure do via blonde - but I struggle to put names to faces. I reckon I know your face, but not your name. Or is it the other way round?

I saw a guy I recognized tonight at Luton, knew he was one of us, our eyes met (behave..) & we shook hands, I said, "err, are you Sheriff Fatman?", he said "no, I am TightEnd". How embarrassing. I just plead senility. It's amazing how many folks accept that at face value.

The report that there were 12 left was wrong - I must say, it shocked me that they had lost 5 players AND had a dinner break - in 20 minutes!

They have just resumed post dinner, & it's still Bubble time. 17 left, 16 get paid.

Maybe that was a premonition you had....!

No mate, only been going there since November, actually never heard of him lol!!
I played in the 500 Jan 1st and sat next to him for about 5 1/2 hours and every break folks would say things like "good he is ain't he" or "great player, got all the moves be careful"
I'd reply "who? him? total rock, only saw him play 3 hands and one of those was aces!!"
Was a great experience though, it taught me patience and thinking back now he must have been as card dead as me for all that time. BTW i'm the "shortstack" in his tourny report that went allin on the first hand on the final table only to be reraised by Simon Nowab (i actually winked at him cuz he protected me!!!) with AK and hit his K on the turn poooh!!!

Ian's premonition has come to be correct - 12 left now, after two more exits, & Dave still there!

Minimum money goes up to $14,400 approx.

Any more predictions Ian?
