First hand, Debbie Kimm raises under the gun and finds 2 callers.

They check the 6s 9s 10s flop, Debbie bets the 2h turn and gets two callers.

She bets again on the 3h river and takes it down adding around 1k in the first hand.

Shug Cairnie, who 'hasn't had Kings or Aces for so long...' finds aces in one of the first hands of the day. With a raise under the gun and bets on every street he loses to David Ash's 4d 5s makes two pair.


"Sigh"

Richard Baker and Susie Pearson are en route to a fall out! Rich turns the straight but Susie's two pair become a flush on the river and she scoops the pot.

Ger Smyth wins a smallish pot on the river. He calls 250 on the river with the board 8d Kc 4d 10d 7s and shows Kd Jc to take the pot.

A raise pre flop to 400 gets 4 callers so 5 go to the flop of Ks 8s 7h

Craig Simpson bets 600 and Karl Bursford calls - the rest fold.

6h turn is checked by Karl and Craig bets 1025. Karl calls.

River is 7s and Karl bets 2400. Craig spends a minute thinking before folding.

His battle cry to his friend on the table opposite of "Get the boat and the rods oot mate..." is heard across the bay...

An UTG raise from Ken McBride invokes a flurry of action...

Steve Roderick 3-bets

a 4-bet comes from 'Mr Scottish Guy'

Ken 5-bets...

and Steve 6-bets All In....

Scottish guy folds..

Ken tanks... and folds showing KK

Scottish guy shows QQ...

Of course Rodders shows AA....

Darren Gelsthorpe makes it 500 and gets two callers - one of whom is Craig Simpson.

6s 7d 4h flop is checked to Darren who bets 1200.

Craig re-raises to 3525. It folds back to Darren. He thinks for a while and looks pained.

He eventually fold 8h 8s face up and Craig mucks his cards and scoops the pot...

Shug Cairnie beckons me over - "David Ash - who cracked my Aces with four five off suit, just cracked my Kings with Ace five off suit by hitting the straight! I've decided I only want rubbish hands from now on"

He is still in but fairly short stacked.

Only in Level 2 with blinds 50/100.

At least Shug (left) (and Don) are still smiling...

Complains when he doesn't get kings and aces, complains when he gets them. Just no pleasing some people  ::)

Andy Hall has been filling me in on some of the drama at his table!

QQ v JJ v KK v 67 with multiple raises pre and the flop comes 774 !!

QQ v KK all in pre flop and the Queen drops to beat Kings.

KK v J8 and the flop comes K88 and all the chips go in.

He is having fun trying to dodge the chaos and keep up - "Live poker is rigged!!!"

And our Irish Silver Medalist Nye Venables hits the rail...

After a raise to 450 from seat 1, Nye makes it 1400 in the Blinds and gets 2 callers... 1 of them Tommy Lievens a late entrant and recently sat down at the table...

Flop 7 4 7 and Nye checks as does Tommy in mid position and Seat 1 bets 2.5k

Nye shoves his 11k and Tommy calls and Seat 1 folds QQ

Tommy shows 6 7 and Nye tables K K

Tommy improves to Quads....

Tommy Lievens...
