20:05: Big early pot there at the FT that took quite a while. Miguel opened to 57k in the cut-off and was called by Vamshi (Button) then Terry 3bet to 155k from the BB. Both opponents called. Flop 7d6h2s. Terry continues for 165k, Miguel calls and Vamshi folds. Heads up to the Turn which is 3d. Terry thinks for quite a long time before checking. Miguel then shoves all in. He has about 850k which covers Terry's roughly 450k. Terry tanks for a good couple of minutes but then folds, accidently exposing a Ten. He then turns over the other Ten for the overpair. Miguel lets him see his 77 for Top Set on the Flop. Good escape from Terry there.

21:57: Here's what they're playing for:

1st £10,000
2nd £7,000
3rd £5,000
4th £4,000
5th £3,000
6th £2,100
7th £1,800
8th £1,500
9th £1,300

21:56: No messing about here; we're straight into the FT and play is under way!

Ish Patel
Mark Whitney
Awat Salehi
Jonathan Hughes
Michael Crook
Miguel Gaspar
Vamshi Vandanapu
Daniel Murray
Terry Etim

21:50: Back soon with coverage from the Final Table.

21:43: Chun-Hao Man out in 10th place for £1,100. Terry Etim opens to 50k and was called by Vamshi Vandanapu (SB) and Chun-Hao Man (BB). On the KcQh9c Flop Vamshi checked and Chun-Hao bet 85k (out of about 200k) and original raiser Terry folded. Back to Vamshi and he thought it over before raising enough to set Chun-Hao all in. He called immediately and showed KJo for Top Pair but Vamshi had 99 for a Set. No runner runner help for Chun-Hao this time.

21:30: Daniel Murray is in big blind for 24k and has 26k behind first hand back. Ish limps the Button and Michael Crook calls from the SB then Daniel moves all in for his 50k total. Both others call. Ish and Michael check it all the way to the end and Michael looks good with Trip Tens (T3) but Daniel (who didn't look at his hand) has JT and Trips with a better kicker! He trebles up. Incredibles scenes.

21:25: Play about to restart. There's a big "BE MERRY" sign in the poker room here at 235 Manchester. Good advice.

21:17: Who do you fancy to win out of the last 12? Stick a wee comment at the bottom of the blog. Always happy to hear from people following at home.

21:13: Full (but approximate) chip counts for the final 10 players. Still 2 x 5 handed tables. We need to lose 1 more before hitting the FT. All players have £1,100 locked up but I'm sure they would all like to leave with the £10,000 1st prize.

Table 1
Terry Etim 820k
Awat Salehi 550k
Vamshi Vandanapu 840k
Chun-Hao Man 310k
Jonathan Hughes 330k

Table 2
Ish Patel 470k
Michael Crook 390k
Daniel Murray 50k
Mark Whitney 300k
Miguel Gaspar 1.15million

21:05: Players on a 20 minute break. Chip counts coming soon.

21:06: Break time! Back with chip counts soon. Promise.

21:05: In the last hand before the break we lose Tedi Todorov. He had the low end of a Straight vs Terry Etim's top end.

21:04: Double up for Jonathan Hughes with 33 vs AK. Looks like he's on about 350k now.

21:03: 20 min break in 2 mins.

21:02: Reminder of the payouts remaining:

1st £10,000
2nd £7,000
3rd £5,000
4th £4,000
5th £3,000
6th £2,100
7th £1,800
8th £1,500
9th £1,300
10th £1,100
11th £900

21:01: Kieran Price out in 12th for £900. He was all in pre-flop with KQ vs Miguel Gaspar's 9s and couldn't get there.

20:57: Denis' elimination means that Jonathan Hughes has won the Unibet Qualifier Last Longer competition so he will take home the €2k Unibet Open package. Pretty good considering he's probably the shortest stack in the room!

20:56: We are down to 12 now, 2 tables of 6. Next break in 9 mins then I'll get the full chip counts from everyone.

Table 1
Terry Etim
Awat Salehi
Tedi Todorov
Vamshi Vandanapu
Chun-Hao Man
Jonathan Hughes

Table 2
Ish Patel
Kieran Price
Michael Crook
Daniel Murray
Mark Whitney
Miguel Gaspar

20:55: Tedi Todorov


20:54: Denis Malik out in 13th place for £700.

20:52: Ish Patel. Plenty chips. Greys are 25k, Yellows 5k and Blues 1k.

20:50: Jonathan Hughes

20:45: Vamshi Vandanapu opens for 55k, Terry Etim shoves all in for over 400k. Vamshi says that it was quite a big shove. Terry says "It's only 20 bigs".

20:44: Another break in 20 mins. I'll get chip counts for all players then.

20:36: Junyu Cai out in 14th for £700. Vamshi Vandanapu takes his chips.

20:31: Carnage on Table 2 with Scott Holmes all in with KK vs Ish Patel's JJ and Miguel Gaspar's AhJh. The Jacks come out ahead and Scott is eliminated in 15th place for £700. Miguel's stack takes a hit but he's still got plenty.

20:28: Still 15 left. I checked Miguel Gaspar's stack and it's now 1,080,000. That's a lot with only 5.3 million in play in total.

20:17: Christopher Norfolk out in 16th for £500. Quite a big-looking pot for his T9 Top Pair vs Miguel Gaspar's QQ overpair. Miguel holds and now has one of the larger stacks in the room.

20:10: I need to take short break away from the tourney to give my laptop a charge. Will still add here any eliminations but just not as many hands for a little bit. Back as soon as I can.

20:05: Michael "Warrior" Ahearne out in 17th place for £500. He got it all in pre-flop with A5 vs AQ and didn't get lucky. Awat Salehi takes his chips.

20:04: Denis Malik (right) shoves all in over the top of a Terry Etim (left) open pre-flop but no callers.

19:59: Had an update request for Scott Holmes. He's currently on about 160k and is enjoying his dinner:

19:54: Kieran Price

19:53: Ish Patel

19:51: Here is Miguel Gaspar keeping up with the blog...

19:50: Into Level 20 now and still 17 players remaining.

19:41: Nice pot there for Vamshi Vandanapu vs Chun-Hao Man. Vamshi shoved all in on the Turn for 164k into a pot that already looked close to 300k. Chun-Hao tanked for several minutes and looked in real pain before deciding to give it up. He had about 200k left. The board was AdQh8h-8d.

19:35: Reminder of the payouts so far...

1st £10,000
2nd £7,000
3rd £5,000
4th £4,000
5th £3,000
6th £2,100

21st £400 Dalius Mikalauskas
22nd £400 Ben Knowles
23rd £400 Tomasz Kotlowski

19:28: Andrew Wright out in 18th for £500. He shoves his shortie all in from the SB with T5o and was called by Michael Crook with AK which held up.

19:22: 18 left so breaking down to 2 tables.

19:20: Anonymous out in 19th for £400.

19:17: On Table 4, Awat Salehi limps in the SB and Denis Malik raises to 30k. Denis says he'll show if Awat folds. He does end up folding and Denis shows only one card, an Ace. Next hand Denis gives Junyu Cai a walk.

19:14: Chun-Hao Man opens to 25k UTG and is called by the the 2 blinds, Tedi Todorov and Vamshi Vandanapu. The Flop comes down 973 and all players check. On the Turn 3 Tedi checks, Vamshi bets 35k and Chun-Hao folds. Back to Tedi and he also folds.

19:09: I get lonely here. Anyone reading the blog and rooting for a friend? Stick a comment below if you have any requests for specific players and I'll see what I can do. You can also just say Hello. That's good too.

19:07: Anonymous gest his double up soon after, all in pre-flop with A8 vs chip leader Terry Etim's 99. The Ace comes down to save Anonymous and he doubles.

19:05: We're back in action now. First hand on Table 2 Anonymous shoves his 80k stack all in. No takers though.

18:47: Here are the full (but very approximate) chip counts with 19 left. I think we have just 2 players remaining (marked with *) in the Unibet Qualifier Last Longer. Incidently, there is no Table 1 as it has broken up.

Table 2
Terry Etim 610k
Michael Ahearne 100k
Tedi Todorov 170k
Vamshi Vandanapu 480k
Chun-Hao Man 280k

Kieran Price 260k
Scott Holmes 180k

18:35: Break time. 19 left. Chip counts coming soon.

18:30: Mateusz Krzyzewski now out. 20th for £400.

18:25: Big one on Table 2! Terry Etim opens, Mateusz Krzyzewski calls in position and Vamshi Vandanapu comes along from the SB. The Flop comes down 2s3s4s and Terry continues for 30k. Mateusz makes it 90k and Vamshi folds. Back to Terry and he tanks for a bit then calls. Turn 9h. Terry checks and Mateusz moves all in for about 230k. Terry only has about 190k left, he snap-calls and tables Js7s for a flopped Flush. Mateusz is behind but not dead with AsAh (he just called with Aces pre-flop). The River is the Queen of Clubs and Terry doubles up!

18:20: Here are the payouts so far...

1st £10,000
2nd £7,000
3rd £5,000
4th £4,000
5th £3,000
6th £2,100
7th £1,800
8th £1,500
9th £1,300
10th £1,100
11th £900
12th £900

18th £500
19th £400
20th £400
21st £400 Dalius Mikalauskas
22nd £400 Ben Knowles
23rd £400 Tomasz Kotlowski

18:19: Dalius Mikalauskas out in 21st for £400 too. Dropping fast now the Bubble has passed. Next break in 15 mins then I'll get all the chip counts and latest seating.

18:10: Ben Knowles out in 22nd for £400.

18:08: Tomasz Kotlowski out in 23rd for £400.

18:06: Miracle Worker Tedi Todorov is all in pre-flop with 55 vs 77 and even says he doesn't want a Five. However, he gets one and doubles up!

18:02: Dalius Mikalauskas shoves a little over 100k on the Button and gets it through. Miguel Gaspar in the SB claims he folded AQ suited but Dalious doesn't seem to believe it.

18:00: Tedi Todorov did well to make the money as he was super short. He's now just got his last 12k (just over 1bb) in and multiplied it by 4 to get to around 50k (5bb).

17:59: The Bubble has burst! AK Ali is out in 24th place. All other players remaining in the money.

17:56: Blinds up! Still 24 left on the Bubble here in Manchester. I'll get the full chip counts at the end of this level when we have another short break.

17:51: Blinds going up to 5k/10k/2k in 2 mins. Getting expensive!

17:48: The scene in the poker room. Still 24 remaining.

17:42: Bad beat for Jonathan Bradley. His QQ all in pre-flop vs A7 didn't hold and he's out in 25th place. We are now on the Bubble! 24th gets £0 and 23rd £400.

17:40: 25 left here so once we lose 1 more we'll go Hand for Hand on the Bubble.

17:30: Michelle Bennett out.

17:25: Joseph McGown out in I think 27th place. He shoved has short stack all in from the Button with KT but was called by A9 and couldn't find a suck out.
