The Sincerest Form of Flattery
The Christmas Cracker 2003, Luton
People always ask us, "How did you get the name ‘The Hendon Mob’, and can I join?" The four of us have been friends for a long time. We have travelled to poker tournaments all over the world together and we played in a private game in my flat in Hendon for a long time too. Sadly the poker room had to make way for a bigger office but it was probably because of that game that whenever the four of us, or part of, walked into a poker room players would shout, “Here come TheHendonMob”, or “Where’s the rest of The Hendon Mob”. When Victoria Coren wrote the first ever feature on The Mob for The London Evening Standard in September 2000 as a pre-empt to the first ever Poker Million she needed a title and so The Hendon Mob was born. As a matter of fact Ross and Barny live in Archway and Ram in Finchley which are both close enough.
The best the (Hendon) Mob could manage after such a great start to the first three tournaments was the last two or three tables in the £200 NLH and the £250 PLH yesterday.
