The Hendon Mob splash out

Well done and congratulations to Cameron on winning the caption competition. His winning caption was "Hug me all you want Ram, you're not getting any of my 60 grand".
Ha ha very funny, but I nipped him for ten grand straight away…
It’s been a disappointing week with only a couple of money finishes, and on top of that I missed the final ever episode of my all time favourite comedy Friends.
Today’s event was the $5,000 Limit Omaha Hi-Lo and was made extra special because it was the first event where the winner will get the title of World Champion. Unfortunately the day never started too well; Myself, Ross and Barny were all up at 5.00am when our swimming pool started overflowing and decided to manouvre into the house. Buster was very happy with his new paddling pool and Ross and Barny were happy to watch as I filled bucket by bucket! I guess it doesn’t always pay to be the youngest member of The Hendon Mob. Anyway, we all got knocked out early in the tournament but Joe seemed to going very well when we left.
News just in: Joe went out in 35th place close to the money but not quite the bubble. Tomorrow is the $1500 NLH freezeout and a big turnout is expected with many more, English, Irish and other Europeans arriving in the last 48 hours.
