BCPC Season 13, Game 4 – Friday 13 February 2015
Christ on a bike – got a lot to do today so let’s crack on (while listening to 22min version of Autobahn, much to the delight of the missus). Leaderboard going into week 4 (moving day, if you’ll recall) was:
Tony G, Matt Kay, John Harfield and Andy Ubermeister all missing so we started with 21 players on 3 tables.
Tony proudly turned up with some kind of Hindu good-luck goddess – so nothing could go wrong there. More on that later. By the way if you didn’t know who Tony T is:
He’s also a massive:
Chris proudly donned the Shirt of Shame, then proceeded to have a bit of Carling. More on that later.
20.06 – “Foyie’s in the game”. Good to know.
Adam Smith, ever the sharp student of the game, had a straight flush but didn’t realise.
Long live Laverne and Shirley – hang on, I didn’t write that!
Tony was one of the first out. With Shakti (or wherever it was) providing the divine power surging through the Crazy Currant, nothing could go wrong, right? All-in with AK v Laura’s AJ. A king on the flop – good! A jack on the flop – not good, but OK. Jack on the river – less than good. The important thing in this situation is to not lose it.
So anyway after Tony’s frankly disturbing outburst the game moved on.
Some jiggery-pokery from Paul Foy with the deck. Laura: “You ain’t Paul Daniels, you’re Paul Foy!” Again, good to know.
Adam Smith was (I think) our Michael Bublé-boy.
|I moved to the dealer’s choice cash game so being honest didn’t pick up much details from the final table – must try harder. At least the cash session was lucrative. Gonna change my name to Martha Plimpton – ‘cause boy was I rivered. (Bri can’t believe you called £5 to hit a gutshot AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! – although funnily enough the maths wasn’t totally bogus, but why did you have to hit?? Pfffff.)|
|10||1||Nic Rawlings||AQ v the 77 of man of the moment, Sean Priest. The 7s improved to a set.|
|9||2||Dawn Wilson||Answers on a postcard.|
|Btw let’s not forget that Kev’s new nickname is the Tadpole.Didn’t hear it mentioned once last night.|
|8||3||Steve Healey||Got frisky with 75o, ran into 66 of Matt Wilson.|
|7||4||Matt Wilson||Matt was on fire tonight. No, seriously, he said it was really warm. Not sure how he exited – something about AQ.|
|6||5||Adam Phelan||AJ v Jay’s QT is all I have written down.|
|5||6||Jay Scott||Key hand was 88 v AJ, not sure who against.|
|4||8||Steve Redfern||A big call from Gaz with 33 held up against Steve’s shove with TQ. OK held up as an understatement as two more 3s came on the board. 🙂|
|3||10||Chris Baker||God knows. Tried to get some sense on the way home. Yeah, that didn’t go that well.|
|Runner up||12||Gareth Howard||Something like Gaz’s fourth second place, but it takes him into second overall. All in with J6 on a 356 flop v Sean’s 45, the 2 on the turn and no chop on the river. You know I’m beginning to think J6 isn’t a good hand.|
|Winner||15||Sean Priest||Playing well, running well, confidence is up and getting some great results.|
Bye-bye Steve Redfern
Sad day for the club as we say goodbye to Steve, a driving force in the club since day 1. We’ve had some battles down the years! 🙂 The position of treasurer is now available on the committee. If you’re interested, let one of the committee members – Brian Yates, Tod Wood, Paul Foy, Adam Phelan or Andy Duncan – know.
The drive home
Tried to engage Chris in coversation a few times – this was after his ‘dancing’ in the car park, as described by Brian – and eventually got, “Sorry, Tod – if you want me to resonate with the last 15 mins, 5 hours like I’m the small man in the corner of channel 4 it ain’t gonna happen. I’m not that man on Countdown.” Lolz.
