Bad Girls?

First of all I would like to congratulate Xuyen ‘Bad girl’ Pham on her win in the WPC in Dublin and also to Joe for yet another second place finish in front of the cameras. I think it was great to see our first ever female winner on TV but how a little sweetie like Pham ever got a nickname like ‘Bad Girl’ I’ll never know. Well done to everyone at the Merrion Card Casino and to the sponsors Gaming Club for running a great tournament which produced an unbelievable field of not just top European but also some of the top American players which included no less than 5 world champions. Also I am always a big fan of any tournament where the players are allowed to wear logos. Drawn on my table was current world champion Greg Raymer and I’ll never forget going heads up with ex-world champion Carlos Mortensen in my heat. We were about level on chips when a third club hit the turn. I set him in with the bare ace and he called with a straight. Of course the club came on the river and like I said in my interview afterwards sometimes it’s just good to be blessed. I was lucky to make the final and therefore wasn’t too upset about being the first one eliminated after about 20 minutes. Anyway it was straight back to the Vic where things have been a bit quiet for the first half of the week for The Mob. I am very disappointed to see that they have taken out my favourite tournament, the pot limit seven card stud, but at least we have a couple of big No Limit tournies to look forward to.

Well done to Vicky Coren as well for her second place in the £200 PLH. This is the sixth time that she has played this event and the third time that she has made the final.

Joe just missed out on today’s £200 PLO Final when Surindar knocked him out in 10th for £448 in prize money. The line up is as follows:
