We roll on here as our chilled out tourney continues.
Some of us feel old as one of the dealers, David, has “Something About Mary” hair… but he’s too young to get the reference.
He’ll google it on his next break and come back looking horrified.
Lvl 5 – 100/200/25 – 15/16 players
There’s a bit of a rumble happening over the fact we are still using a standard ante on this tournament.
The primary reason for this is that the brand manager and the TD are old skool poker heads and hate change, the second reason is that every other tournament this year in the series has been standard ante and we didn’t want to switch on the last event of the year just because everyone else is!
We’re thinking about whether we make the switch for next year, we’re not “anti” it! #comedygold
There are some heated chats going on here, not arguing, just discussions on a wide variety of topics from sports to ham and cheese sandwiches. Most people know eachother here and this is reflected in the atmosphere.
BREAK – 15 mins
Lvl 7 – 200/400/50 – 13/17 players
One of the players has unfortunate been taken quite ill and has had to go home. Get well soon!
The player’s stack will remain in play and be blinded into the tournament pool.
Lvl 8 – 250/500/50 – 14/18 players

Couple of short stacks clinging on/trying to double up as we creep into the last level of the day.
7 players made it through after a double elimination by Onno Vrijburg on the very last hand as he took out a short stack and Ina Pavlova when his pocket Kings held up against both.
Play resumes on level 13 on Sunday 25th November at 14:00.
