2 casualties on the final whistle

Just as play is about to wrap up for the day there are two eliminations.
The first is our other absentee for the day Giuseppe Pillitteri who is all in for 450 in the big blind. Roland de Wolfe raises to 2000 and all fold round. Pillitteri has 4 6 but de Wolfe has A K.spades which holds up.

Our other casualty is Rob Sherwood who can’t get away from the wrong end of a full house with the board showing 6 A K K A 6 Sherwood has a six but Mark Stewart has an ace and all the money goes in on the river.
Sherwood out, Stewart very healthy going into day 2.

Roland Rat?

Roland de Wolfe has been raising pre-flop to 1,500 every other hand. He does it again from early position and it’s folded round to Joe Beevers in the big blind, who smells a rat and makes it 4,500. Roland’s having none of that and moves his stack, another 17,000. Joe doesn’t take long to fold. No need for silliness with two minutes to the end of play.

Seagal wins his first hand of the day

Mark Seagal has not been present all day and has been blinded off to the point where he was just all in on the big blind. Rules here state that the hand is live even if the player is absent when all in so his cards would definitely contest this hand.
Barny Boatman raises to 2000 from mid-position and all fold round. Barny has 5 5.clubs and when Seagal’s cards are turned over he turns out to be favourite with K 10
The board is 2 A 10 Q 3 and Seagal doubles up with his first win of the day
