Crolla doubles up in last hand of Day 1B

Crolla’s A K hit a flop of Q 10 9 against his opponent’s K Q


Butler out to Punn

Gavin Butler’s all-in from middle position are instantly called by Punn after a 5k PF raise on a flop of 4 6 9

Butler shows A-9 and Punn tables J-J

The turn brings J and the river is 3

Ten minutes remaining until the end of Day 1B


Simcoe - Out

Simcoe moves in with 22 and is called by Marcus Farthing with A9

A 9 on the turn and an Ace on the river makes sure that Simcoe heads to the rail.

Final board: 7 8 10 9 A


This is a £1/2 game.

But the outrageous action in the Omaha cash game has cost at least one player his shirt


Scott doubles Punn through

In a battle of the blinds, Michael Punn pushes for just over 20k and elicits a call from Nick Scott in the big blind.

Punn’s pocket 5s improve to a set and Scott’s A-9 are lacking a much needed diamond to a 4-diamond board.


Daniel Byrom - Out

Daniel Byrom moves all-in for 9800 on the small blind after a late 4000 re-raise by Mike Williams and is called.

Byrom shows 98 while Williams tables AQ

Byrom gets no help on the board and is knocked out on the final level of today.

Final board: 3A1056

Players are now into the last half-hour of play for today.

PLO Sidegame has monster 4-way all in pre-flop

In a £2000 pot, 4 mania…sorry, players, get it all in in a £1/£2 PLO sidegame.

The hand that won it? K-T-5-8.

But the 5-8 were suited which prompted the call.

Kings over tens eventually took the pot down. His stack now resembles the great wall of china.

FAO Joe, Ram, Ross, Barny and Neil Channing: Flights back from Vegas are currently on sale and a taxi to Bristol has got to be cheap enough with this kind of action….
