Dave Pilkington, upon discovering he is on the same table as Tony Trippier, says "I'm going to take your chips - be sure to put salt and vinegar on them for me, would ya?"

More on this throughout the day...

Bri Yates is about to turn his cards over with a board of Jc 8s 2d 8d Qh and a sizeable pot.

Bri shows 9h 10d for the straight.
Schmit Yves chuckles and shows Ac A s and the pot goes to Bri.

Dawn Cooke, Tony Blee and Laura Rhoden are all on the same table...

Tony and Dawn get into a raising war pre flop with one other player.

9 high flop sees Tony bet 2200. The third player folds and Dawn calls.

The turn is Qh

Dawn bets 3500, Tony makes it 8k, Dawn calls (2nd or 3rd hand in here...)

River is 8d

Tony bets 6k.

Dawn talks for a while..."you can't have QQ...you just can't...I have to call"

Dawn has the Qc

Tony does indeed have Qd Qs

Dawn down to around 5k.

Tony Blee calls from under the gun.

It folds to Adam Smith who makes it 550.

Robin Cross and Stig Peeters make the call along with Tony.

Tony bets 1k the Qh 9d 6c flop

Adam raises to 4250.

Robin and Stig fold and Tony makes the call.

5d turn is checked by Tony

Adam bets 6500 and Tony fairly quickly calls.

Tony checks the 5h river and mucks to Adam's Ah Ac

Tony still with a healthy stack and Adam adds a significant amount to his.

Brian Yates with a raise to 425 pre.

He gets 3 callers - Luke Young, Hitendra Patel and Jerome Theis.

3h Jh 9d

Hitendra bets 625, Jerome folds, Bri calls, Luke folds.

3s turn

Hitendra leads out again for 1200

Bri thinks and then calls.

River is Qs

Hitendra fires the 3rd bullet - 2025

Bri thinks again before raising to 5500

Hitendra makes the call but he mucks when Bri turns over 9c 9h and Bri collects a nice pot.

There is a raising war pre between Danny Op' Hof and Christopher Holzel.

It culminates in Danny shipping for around 20k ove rthe top of a 7.5k bet from Christopher.

Christopher has a think and a little talk "You have Queens? I think you have Queens"
Danny responds by saying "you hope I have Queens, I think you have Ace King"

Christopher makes the call and does, indeed, show A s Kh

Danny shows the predicted Qd Qc

8h Js 7h 2d Kd

Danny doubles up and leaves Christopher with fumes.

Laura Rhoden is walking away from the table looking unhappy...she says that Stig Peeters has had about 4 lots of pocket aces in the first 2 levels so far!

And, having run her pocket Jacks into his aces ealier leaving her with less than 10k, she then runs Ac Kc into the same guy's Aces for the rest!!

She is bust but being consoled by the rest of the gang and something about "more time for drinking" or something...when in Ireland....

Dave Pilkington, having recovered from the disappointment of having to move table, is up to over 30k, he ships a 10c 7s 7h 6d board holding 10h 9d

He gets called by Aces! And hits the 10d on the river to double up.

Paul Shillibar sat on over 45k!

When asked what happened he just said "I've had pocket pair after pocket pair, I've had aces twice and they held, called and all in with AK and it held, had AA* on a J 10 Q board and had to call the other guys ship - he had AQ - it's just going really well"

Edited on correction - thanks Shill :)

Jimmy Vegas up to over 40k - when I asked how he got the chips he responded "I don't know to be honest, I put a sign on the table saying 'Donations welcomed gratefully' and everyone was generous!"

I am filled in on the actual details - 6 way to the flop, Jimmy open ships the Ac 3h 5h flop and is called by Mark Strahan.

Jimmy has Ad Ks
Mark has Ah 4h

No heart or deuce on turn or river and Jimmy gets the double!
