Anyone remember this fine young man who was a Gala Notts stalwart around 10 years ago?

For bonus points, what is his blonde alias?

Gotta be Ed Bailey surely, the "hair do" is making me slightly dither

Whats the temperature like in the Venetian car park please? might play there tomorrow and don't want to take hoodie if not required


Correct, and yes, the hair is a bit different.

I'd suggest taking a hoodie to Venetian, temperature is ok but usual aircon.

What are you playing, and at what time? I'm due there around 1230 for 1pm start.

Gotta say I think pokerGo is such good value for what they offer. Unique original content as well as live content from top tournaments with the very best commentating. Hope it sticks around for a while and is well supported. Currently Phil Galfond commenting on 2-7. Fantastic, if you haven’t got it I highly recommend.

Event 6 - $365 Giant NLH, Flight 1B

Just 49 players appear on the overnight chip counts for Day 1B, and unfortunately it's a Brit-free zone.

Local player Jon Turner has a large chip lead form Lithuania's Matas Cikinas and Californian Ubaid Habib.


Event 11 - $365 Giant PLO, Flight 1B

Much the same story here with no UK players among the 31 qualifiers. The top dozen are all US names, with Randy Holland, Daniel Smith and Ayaz Mahmood the top three.

Holland has two bracelets already to his name, the only other bracelet holder through is Calen McNeil.


Event 20 - $5K NLH, Day 3 of 4, 518 entries

Just eight players go forward to the denouement of the Event 20 story, but there is still a British intrest with David Laka in 5th placed overnight.

Shawn Buchanan, Jeremy Wien and David Peters are the top three, with Eric Blair (not that Eric Blair, random literary reference) in 4th.

Stephen Chidwick and Ben Dobson had earlier cashed in this event.


Event 21 - $1500 Millionaire Maker, NLH, Day 1A/B of 5, 7361 entries

The Millionaire Maker spread it's opening day over two days, if you get my drift. After combining the survivors from the two flights, Andrea Buonocore has the biggest stack, with two GB players among the top ten - Artan Dedusha lies in 4th and James Dempsey sits in 8th.

Other Brits still in include Iaron Lightbourne, Chris Moorman, Barny Boatman and Sam Razavi, while Sky player Michael Kane is shown at the bottom with 1 chip. I don't know if that means he has actually 0 chips or whether his bag wasn't recorded properly.


Event 22 - $1500 Eight Game Mix 6-Max, Day 2 of 3, 481 entries

Just 16 left after 2 days but a very interesting 16, especially for a $1500 event. Nicholas Seiken isn't the story but he's the chip leader, with Londoner Philip Long close behind.

Among the other 12 though are David Bach, Robert Williamson III, John Racener, Daniel Negreanu and Mike "the mouth" Matusow.


Event 23 - $10K 2-7 Draw Lowball Championship No Limit, Day 1 of 3, 85 entries so far


Late reg still not closed and expect some of those knocked out on Day 1 to throw another bullet at this, seeing as there's only 38 players who bagged chips at the end of Day 1.

Four former winners of this very event are still active, Paul Volpe, Jesse Martin & Nick Schulman, plust 2017 winner John Monnette are among the 38, as are Benny Glaser and Stephen Chidwick (both inside the top 5) and Adam Owen a little bit (well quite a way to be fair) down the chip listing.

The WSOP have re-tweeted a message from the one and only Doyle Brunson, "Going to the Rio to play in 2-7 lowball tournament. Probably the last one I'll ever play." I bet he gets a huge reception on entering the room.

Event 20 - $5K NLH, Day 4 of 4, 518 entries


Jeremy Wien collected his first bracelet and over half a million dollars by winning Event 20.

He won the heads-up battle against a specialist in that format, Spaniard David Laka by using an unconventional strategy. Over 138 hands of heads-up play (taking 4 hours), Wien not only didn't raise all his buttons, he folded 32 times giving Laka a walk, and instead entering most hands out of position. With the time taken to play heads-up, blinds rose until they were only about 25BB deep, and with stacks about even Wien got a dream scenario - pocket aces with Laka holding pocket queens. Even then it didn't all go in pre-flop, but on a jack high flop it did and Wien held.

Eric Blair finished third.


Event 21 - $1500 Millionaire Maker, NLH, Day 2 of 5, 7361 entries

155 players remain in the MM with Aaron Messmer the only player over a million chips.

Two former ME winners are still in - Joe McKeehan & Greg Raymer, as are player of the year leader Elio Fox, Joseph Cheong, JC Tran and British representatives Iaron Lightbourne, Barny Boatman and James Dempsey.


Event 22 - $1500 Eight Game Mix 6-Max, Day 3 of 3, 481 entries


BRITISH BRACELET ALERT

The first British bracelet of the series is in the possession of Philip Long, the 29 year old originally from Birmingham but now living in London taking down the tournament from a stacked Day 3 field.

David Bach, Robert Williamson II, Anthony Zinno and Mike Matusow all departed early, and by the time the FT was reached, Long had a substantial lead. When John Racener was knocked out in 4th, Long was left up against Kevin Malis and 6-time bracelet winner Daniel Negreanu.

Malis (by far the least experienced of the final 3) knocked out Negreanu during a NLH hand, lifting him almost even with Long as heads-up play started, but the Brit gradually got the better of it and on a hand of Razz a 6-5-3-2-A hand was good enough to claim the title.

According to WSOP stats, he is the 37th British player to win a bracelet, those 37 winning a total of 45 bracelets.

Long won $147K, not his biggest WSOP cash as he won over $229 for his run in the 2013 Main Event.


Event 23 - $10K 2-7 Draw Lowball Championship No Limit, Day 2 of 3, 95 entries


It's not quite "Goodbye, Dolly" yet. Among the 10 players to late reg at the beginning of day 2 was the legend that is Doyle Brunson, apparently in his final poker outing before retiring completely.

The 84-year old made it through Day 2, and was chip leader for a decent proportion of the day and at one point his son Todd was second in chips (they also played a while side-by-side on the same table)

11 players remain, and 7 of the 11 have won a combined 24 bracelets between them.

Mike Wattel has the overnight lead, ahead of 2 of the 4 non-bracelet holders (Shawn Sheikhan & Galen Hall) with Doyle still inside the Top 5.

I'm sure no-one would mind Brunson getting at least to the FT, and possibly even going out in one final blaze of glory. Good luck Texas Dolly.


Event 24 - $2620 The Marathon (100 minute levels), Day 1 of 5, 1479 entries so far


Late reg will be open for the first two levels of Day 2, so expect the total number of players to rise. Players joining in now will have plenty of play, their 26200 chips still being over 30 Big Blinds.

Of those who did play Day 1, Josuha Smith, Pablo Fernandez Campo and Sanjay Dulabh have the three biggest stacks. Campo is showing as from the UK but on Hendon Mob, every single one of his cashes have been in the USA (all but two in the WSOP)

706 come back with plenty of other British names amongst them - Ben Heath, Javier Fernandez, Dennis Rubba, Michael Kane, JP Kelly, Raul Martinez Requena, Chun Yam all inside the Top 200.

Trawling through a list of over 700 names isn't that easy, but I've found Oliver Busquet, Scotty Nguyen, Gaelle Baumann, Faraz Jaka, Gavin O'Rourke and Andre Akkari again all in the upper echelons of the field.


Event 25 - $1500 7 Card Stud Hi-Lo 8 or better, Day 1 of 3, 596 entries


About a third of the field made it through to Day 2, with the wonderfully named Trent Gundrum bagging the most chips.

Eli Elezra narrowly missed a bracelet a few days ago, but he's in contention here lying in 3rd overnight.

Plenty of GB interest - Ben Dobson lies 10th, Mikko Hirvonen 65th and Adam Owen 128th.

90 places will be paid, so it will be quite a way into Day 2 before the bubble bursts.

Event 23 update

Early eliminations of Galen Hall and Todd Brunson have seen the field drop to 9 players. Doyle has lost about half his chips and is now one of the shorter stacks, but one good hand could see him vault back up towards the top half.


Stop Press


Ray Dehkharghani has gone too, leaving just 8, 1 spot away from the FT.

Event 21 - $1500 Millionaire Maker, NLH, Day 3 of 5, 7361 entries

The Millionaire Maker is down to just two tables, with 17 players remaining with several interesting names amongst them.

The chip leader is comparitively little known Chad Hahn, ahead of Sean Marshall and Manuel Ruivo.

Lying in 6th place is Joe McKeehan, who has already won three of the iconic WSOP events - the Main Event, the Monster Stack and the $100K One Drop, adding this would mean he has a very impressive CV indeed.

Manig Loeser is a regular on the super High Roller circuit, but has come through this huge field with a decent stack, and there are two British players who will sit side-by-side on their Day 4 table, Sam Razavi & Barny Boatman.


Event 23 - $10K 2-7 Draw Lowball Championship No Limit, Day 3 of 3, 95 entries


While the bracelet (and $259K) is in the possession of Brian Rast, the story has to begin with Doyle Brunson.

As he reached the FT, the rail grew and grew, whooping and hollering each time Brunson won a pot.

It couldn't last and he said his goodbye to the game in 6th place, adding one last cash to his total.

Rast picked up his 4th bracelet after beating Day 2 chip leader Mike Wattel heads-up, with Italian Dario Sammartino finishing 3rd.


Event 24 - $2620 The Marathon (100 minute levels), Day 2 of 5, 1637 entries

Play ended with the bubble being burst at the end of Day 2 (after a two-hour spell of hand-for-hand play), with the 246 players left in the event all guaranteed a minimum of $3860.

Americans sit 1-2-3 with Walter Fisher, Scott Einiger and Daniel Colpoys the players in question.

Belgian Bart Lybaert is top Euro in 4th, while Chris Moorman, Javier Fernandez, Raul Martinez Requena, Matthew Moss, Pablo Campo, JP Kelly, Markus Kuhnen, Chun Yam, Jack Sinclair & Sergi Reixach all having "GB" against thir names in the chip counts.

Some other names that have progressed include former ME winner Ryan Reiss, Faraz Jaka, Marvin Rettenmaier and Jesse Sylvia.



Event 25 - $1500 7 Card Stud Hi-Lo 8 or better, Day 2 of 3, 596 entries

Only 23 left, and there is a British name at the top - Ben Dobson - and he has quite a chip lead. His 595K compares very nicely to the second player's 349K.

Who is that second player? Hall of Famer and 3-time bracelet winner Barry Greenstein. Eli Elezra is having a good series and lies 4th, and actor/producer James Woods is 10th.

Dobson got a huge chunk of chips in a house-over-house confrontation with Mike Matusow

Eli Elezra narrowly missed a bracelet a few days ago, but he's in contention here lying in 3rd overnight.


Event 26 - $1K PLO, Day 1 of 3, 986 entrants

Exactly 100 remain, with the leader being Trinidadian Ryan Goindoo. In a cosmopolitan leader board, Bulgarian Ivaylo Sivinov and American Clinton Mossford complete the top 3, with Israel, Brazil, Hungary, Austria, Finland and South Africa all represented inside the Top 20.

No Brits, although if I extended it to the Top 30 there would be as Phillip Mighall sits 27th and Robert Cowen 28th. John Kabbaj is also still in.

It appears to have been a good year for former ME winners, and we have another one doing well in this event, Joe Cada sits just below Cowen on the listings.


Event 27 - $10K HORSE Championship, Dauy 1 of 3, 157 entries so far


Already up on last year's field size, entries are open until the start of play on Day 2,

Shaun Deeb has the biggest stack of those who played Day 1 ahead of Michael McKenna & Robert Mizrachi

Top Brit is Iraj Parvizi, Benny Glaser and Suketu Patel have mid-sized stacks, while lurking down near the bottom of the chip counts is Stuart Rutter.

Other names include Daniel Negreanu and Scott Siever down with Stu among the shorties, Frank Kassela and Jason Mercier in the middle, and David Benyamine, James Obst and David "Bakes" Baker in the upper echelons.

As you know, the Updates I m posting are cut & pasted from Next Door (with permission of the Author), but they have their own WSOP thread too.

This post appeared overnight;

Great thread as usual. How is T Kendall getting on in the $1k PLO?

That was posted by my Boss. Lovely job.

And in reply to that post;


Heard the structure is pretty good in that.

Which was authored by an ex-friend of mine.


It's OK, keep it coming boys.
