Yesterday was the $500 Pot Limit Omaha re-buy event and it was to be the fourth time this trip that Ram made the final table. However Ram didn’t have everything his own way on this occasion as I managed, just like in the Omaha Hi-Lo a couple of days ago, to make it with him. I knocked Ram out this time just before the money as only five got paid. I managed a 5th place finish and my second cash at the Four Queens.

I was watching ESPN whilst on the treadmill in the spa here in The Golden Nugget where we are staying the other morning and it looks like Tiger’s rush is finally over. After 264 weeks as world golf number one Vijay Singh has finally outdrawn him proving that golf, just like poker, is a game of chance. Tiger accumulated $36 million dollars in that time with an amazing $9 in 2002 alone but he’s probably still a little upset. Can you name who was the last number one? Answers get a Prima Poker Tour 2004 T-shirt, entries to themob@thehendonmob.com.

There was a programme on ESPN about ESPN and they were talking about how they show all the best sport and all the finely tuned athletes. As they said ‘finely tuned athletes’ they cut to a shot of Tomer Benvenisti in the 2003 WSOP Main Event!

These Americans can be a bit crazy. Did you know that 20 parents named a child ESPN last year and there was one called just SP! Can you imagine a kid going to school in the London East End called Sky Sports Extra?
