Hitendra Patel wins Season 19 Week 3, Laura Rhoden 2nd, Tony Trippier 3rd

BCPC Season 19, Game 3– Friday 12th January 2018

After a festive break for Christmas and New Year, the BCPC lot were back at the New Talbot to work off those mince pies and beer with a proper fitness regime dollop of errrr, poker!  Cawley was probably wishing the Christmas break hadn’t have come and was itching to get the 3rd game underway; What with his perfect 1, 1 start that would give punters looking at Osses something to smile about!  Could he make it three or could the rest of the pack do anything to pull the reigns in on Tom? As they say in Mortal Kombat, ROUND 3, FIGHT!

Tonight’s game

25 descended and (As usual) it took the first hand for the action to get saucy.  Tod Wood looking down at A/K meets the might of Nic Rawlings who decides to have a pair of pocket Kings to start with.  Luckily for Tod however the case King didn’t come which saved him a fair few chippies right there!

On another table it was Coshan vs Buckland.  Ricky token bets Amy’s big blind and undeterred she comes along for the ride (poker) Flop comes down J Q 9 (2 diamonds) giving Amy a made straight who then proceeds to bet her 10/K in to Ricky who calls.  Turn a King and Amy bets again.  Unbeknownst to Amy Ricky’s holding a couple of diamonds and the 4d on the river would seal it for the flush. Unlucky Coshan and nice hand Ricky!

 

 

 Cromwell would be in the thick of it not long after against Marc who has pocket Queen’s with the blinds at 75/150.  He bets up to 400 and Cromwell calls in the Big blind with A/5 Suited.  An ace on the flop and Marc bets in position after Cromwell checks.  A 2nd Ace on the turn would give Cromwell trips as he leads out for 1000 and finds the call from Marc.  Action ultimately slowed down on the river giving Cromwell a bit of change to play with!

The very next hand and Peter would be all in after losing a fair wad to Cromwell who made a successful bluff on the river not long before.  His compadre in this all in?  Marc again.  After Peter raised to 500 preflop, Marc would be there to reraise to 2000 which resulted in a shove call from Peter.  Marc decided in this hand to go one better with pocket Kings and Peter would flip over Ace Jack resulting in an underdog position.  Here’s out it played out…

 

 

The result would send Peter home and then there were 24

 

Mark England this time would be having a bit of fun with Amy after she call raised pre flop.  Mark decides to join her, holding KQ and rightly so liked his AJT flop making it his turn for the flopped straight. A bet was put in, which was flatted and another Ace was delivered on the turn which ultimately slowed down the action.  Mark in position then bet the river and Amy correctly folded her pocket Queens.  After losing a stack not so long previously to Ricky it didn’t look to be Coshan’s night.

 

Gaz Howard looked to be #runninglikegaz in the 3rd game of the season.  All in on the flop with 7 high, flush possibilities. Would you like a spade sir? Ask and thou shalt receive!

 

 

 

It wasn’t to be for Tod Wood courtesy of Adam Smith.  A classic coin flip pitted Woods J/K spades vs Smithy’s pocket 9’s.  No help on the community and it was Tod’s turn to exit.

 

Tony Trippier wasn’t having a very good night and it’s easy to see why with hands like this… Claire Bailey decides to beat Tony’s pocket Kings with Ace Queen by performing a

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

STRAIGHT!

 

Unlucky Tony 🙁

 

 

Another notable hand of the night would see Ricky’s demise in spectacular fashion.

 

Ricky gets it all in and is joined in a three way with Mark England and Laura Rhoden.  Needless to say Laura had been well and truly….

 

It was the future PHD who had the last laugh however; her pocket Kings no match for Mark and Ricky’s Ace King x 2 and a healthy chip stack would ensue leaving Ricky to exit the game.

 

Final Table

 

Unfortunately absolutely no information on the final table whatsoever and the players struggled to remember who finished where courtesy of a few sherbert dips 🙂

All we know with any real degree of certainty is that 2 time Tom managed to bag a respectable 6th position after shoving pocket Aces on a Q/2/4 board vs Queen Jack.  Obviously a Jack on the river and that would mean Tom would rack more points to his amazing start to the season.

By just gone 3 it was all over and H won with pocket Queens.  He was that excited a proper final picture wasn’t taken (opting to let his thumbs do the talking instead)  Congrats H on your first of hopefully many more league victories!

Tod’s telly pick with “What’s on Wood?” (WOW?) 

A public service announcement brought to you in part by Tod Wood:

“Well, now then.  I started to watch Hard Sun but it was utterly preposterous so I quickly gave u.  We’ve just finished season 1 of The Good Place on Netflix – I would highly recommend and it has Ted Danson in so that should be enough anyway.  But the real news is Hunted is back!  Hunted! HUNTED! One of my favourite shows of the last few years and not enough people are watching it.  All episodes are on All 4 so what are you waiting for???

Muchos Gracias Tod!
