GBPT Bristol Day 1A

News & Reports

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


20 minutes left of play

The chip bags are being laid out ready for the end of the day 1A.


Beevers back in front

Joe Beevers eventually gets Roland de Wolfe to fold but not before he’s built a pot. The board shows K 3 5 A 8 and Joe bets 7500 into a 11500 pot.
Roland claims he has been playing a raggy ace and folds, seemingly very displeased with himself for staying in the pot.
Joe moves on to 63,000, Roland down to 13,000


Donegan Done-again

Pat Donegan raised preflop from early position and was called from the button by Mark Stewart. Pat led out for 3,000 on a flop of A 7 5 and Mark set him all-in for another 13,000. Donegan called with A J but Stewart had him out-kicked with A Q. Donegan had a multitude of outs but the only one he hit was the way out, after K and 3 fell on the turn and river.


Thakker doubles up

On a flop of 9 3 J Bambos bets 2000 into a pot of 3200. Jitesh Thakker moves all in for 8800 and Barny Boatman gets out the way.
Bambos checks his cards again and says that he’ll give Thakker a spin.
Barny correctly predicts Q 10 which Bambos does indeed flip over.
Thakker is ahead with Q Q and is happy to see 10 4 fall to double him up.


Haughey out

The miracle never came for William Haughey and he’s out.
Blinds will be going up in 6 minutes.


Ian Woodley chopping out the small pots

Ian Woodley has more chips than anyone else in this tournament. Unfortunately for him only one of them is a 5000 (the largest demonination currently in use) The rest are mostly 25 and 100 chips forming massive towers in front of him. He currently has around 22000.


Haughey needs a miracle

Peter Cockayne and William Haughey get it all in on a flop of A 9 6
Haughey shows A J but Cockayne has hit top two with A 9 the turn and river are 6 5 giving Cockayne the win.
Haughey needs a Jack Strauss style miracle now as he is down to one 1000 chip.
