This Hendon Mob Poker League is now over. Here are the full details of the new Hendon Mob Poker League 8.
Mob League Event #1 - Tuesday 15th February 2005
Seventy six players took their seats for the first of the Mob Forum League events on Tuesday 15th February and there were a number of familiar faces. As well as Barny, Ross and Joe (Ram was a little late back from his Poker Million heat) there were such players as Lee 'Devilworm' McCreery, Commieboy, Skalie, Poker4Charity, M3Boy and Jim the Bandit!
'ten5' had the unfortunate claim to fame of first player ever to be knocked out of a league event although Barny Boatman wasn't far behind when he couldn't improve on his pair of 8's. Pommy won the pot with a pair of Kings but he didn't have Barny covered in chips, alanc was also in the pot with pocket Jacks so he officially got the $100 bounty on Barny's head.
Joe was chip leader for a while with 7,600 chips but after losing a couple of big pots was alanc's second bounty victim. alanc found himself on Ross's table and looking for a Mob treble but it was Criamulus who got him. Ross moved all in with J, Q and (probably because of the bounty : ) Criamulus called with Q,8. An eight on the flop and another on the turn sent Ross packing in 17th place.
Twenty players scored points but only ten cashed. MrMoss was out on the bubble when _PJB_ made a straight on the river. The chip counts going into the final were:
Meds took out Cerebral with AQ versus A8. Meds then went out himself in 9th place when his A,3 couldn't improve with a board of 5,6,Q,J,9 and Angry_Badgers 8's stood up.
Angry_Badger's Queens then stood up against Criamulus' A,10 and we were down to 7.
TheBook then eliminated DanMonkey and with six left at the break JimTheBandit appeared and started giving lessons.
_PJB_ took pocket 9's against Yethmates A, 8. The 9's stood up and we were down to 5.
Angry_Badger then knocked out _PJB_ with 2, 2 Vs J, 9
Chip counts with four left:
After 3hours and 45 minutes play the Ant was squashed by the badger and 3 were left. The Book took out the Badger and it was heads up.
alanc had been very aggressive throughout and had played a great final table. On a flop of 9, Q, 6 all the chips went in. alanc held 6, 2 - TheBook held Q, K. A six on the turn sealed TheBook's fate and with his two bounties as well alanc is the first league leader with 31 points (you get one point for playing).
