Unibet UK Poker Tour Manchester - Day 2 - Level 16 (3000/6000/500)

by MARTIN J SMITH on 11th December 2016 @ 16:23

17:15: Looks like we're down to 27 players over 3 tables now. 4 away from the money! Here's a reminder of the payouts:

17:13: Shuai Wang (standing up on the right below) shoves his last 40 or 45k in from the Button on the steal with K2o but is looked up by Tomasz Kotlowski with TT in the BB. The Tens hold and Shuai is sent packing.

17:07: No fairy story for Graham as he is now out :-(

17:03: Graham Dixon not best pleased but all in next hand for 500 chips he manages to 7x them up by winning with 96 vs J2. Now at 3,500, can he spin it up even more?

16:59: On Table 4, Graham Dixon raises to 12k with QQ and is called from the BB by Jonathan Hughes with JTo. The Flop comes Jh8c5d and Jonathan leads out for 12k, against the flow. Graham has a short think then jams his remaining 62.5k all in. Jonathan says "Alright then" and calls. Graham is in decent shape for a double up but a Ten on the River sees the pot head Jonathan's way with 2 Pair. He has 62k so Graham loses everything but 500, a single ante!

16:56: Lost Reyaaz Mulla from Table 1.

16:52: Of the Unibet qualifers in the 2k package last longer I think we 7 left. That's unofficial though so don't quote me!

  • Mateusz Krzyzewski
  • Denis Malik
  • Jonathan Bradley
  • Jonathan Hughes
  • Tomasz Kotlowski
  • Dalius Mikalauskas
  • Graham Dixon

16:50: Looks like David's Mrs wasn't too impressed with the KT call...

16:49: David Oxton out. Looks like he was racing with 55 for his shortie all in pre-flop vs KT and couldn't hold.

16:38: Players back in action. First casualty is Vinod Jadav.

16:35: Looks like we lost Unibet Community regular @mathrimc shortly before the break. Now 33 left.

Unibet UK Poker Tour Manchester - Day 2 - Level 15 (2000/4000/500)

by MARTIN J SMITH on 11th December 2016 @ 15:36

16:12: I must have put the famous Blog Curse on Tim Bruneel there as he's just been eliminated! Sorry Tim :-(

16:11: Break coming up in 2 mins. We have 34 left. No money till 23 left though. During the break I'll try to get as many chip counts as possible. See you soon!

16:07: Unibet online qualifier Tim Bruneel on the same table is a bit shorter with around 120k.

16:04: Here is Vamshi Vandanapu, also on Table 1. Looks like he has about 270k.

16:00: Mateusz Krzyzewski on Table 1 looks to be in good shape. He started the day with 188k and now looks to have about 400k now.

15:49: I didn't catch all the action on this one but arrived on Table 3 with the full board out just as Andrew Ellison was shoving his last 51k in the middle into a pot that looked like about 65k. He was heads up vs Christopher Norfolk. Christopher (pictured below) goes into the tank for a minute or so and doesn't look too happy about the shove. In the end he does make the call (for quite a lot of his remaining stack) and he is good with QJ (Top Pair) vs Andrew's JJ.

15:45: Make that 35. Just lost Jie Tian.

15:42: Down to 36 now and 4 full 9-handed tables.

15:41: Michael Fletcher gets the last of his chips in with AQ vs Scott Holmes' 66 pre-flop. Scott hits a Set and Michael is eliminated.

15:40: Unibet online qualifier Jonathan Bradley looks like he has around 115k at the moment, just a little under the 121k he started the day with.

15:37: We have a break every 3 levels so after this one I'll try to get as many chip counts as possible from around the room.

15:35: Into Level 3 now with 38 players remaining. Allan Graham the most recent player eliminated.

Unibet UK Poker Tour Manchester - Day 2 - Level 14 (1600/3200/400)

by MARTIN J SMITH on 11th December 2016 @ 15:01

15:31: Michael Crook open shoves his 56k stack with T4 from the SB and is called by Michael Fletcher in the BB with 99. Crook manages to hit a Ten on the Turn and another on the River to double up! Fletcher now down to a few thousand although he doubles up next hand himself.

15:27: Double up for short stack Andrew Wright on Table 4. He managed to crack the KK with 76 after getting all on the Flop with a Double Belly Buster, getting there on the River. Looks like Andrew now has about 50k.

15:24: Lost Pavlin Djokov. Down to 41 now.

15:18: On Table 5, Anonymous opens to 10k from UTG+1 and is called on his immediate left by Scott Holmes. They both check all the way to the River then Scott bets 21k when Anonymous checks. Anonymous thinks for quite a while but elects to give it up.

15:15: We've lost UK Poker Legend Neil Channing! No spin for his short stack today.

15:10: Gunnar Andersson out.

15:02: Michael Ahearne (of Gladiators fame) has made Day 2. Here he is (on the right) alongside Shuai Wang on Table 2.

15:00: Level 2 under way now. We've lost Lukasz Kurcaba. Now at 43 players. There are 23 prizes so still a while till we reach the money here in Manchester.

14:57: Some pics from around the room:

14:51: Moran Fermon out.

14:45: Neil Channing started the day with 30,400 and is now down to about 16k. He's just got one through though, shoving all in from the SB getting a fold from Kieran Price in the BB.

14:37: Mark Physic also out. Looks like we're down to 45 players over 5 tables now.

14:28: Big hand on Table 6! Denis Malik opens to 5.6k and is 3bet in position by Zhelyazko Ivanov to 15k. Back to Denis and he 4bets to 40,600. Zhelyazko makes the call. Flop Js6h5h and Denis continues for 55k. Zhelyazko has about 112k and shoves all in. Denis, with him just covered, makes the call and tables Aces. Zhelyazko just has AsKh and is in big trouble, needing a Back Door Straight or Flush. It doesn't come and Zhelyazko is out.

14:26: Saqib Ismail also gone.

14:24: Lost 2 more players! Simon Drysdale and Sebastian Teodoru reporting to the rail.

14:19: A shot of the tournament clock showing the latest info:

14:18: First player gone and it's Olabode "Buddy" Ayegun. He started the day with 37k. Down to 52 players from 53.

14:11: We have a good number of Unibet qualifiers left in the field. The one of these guys who lasts longest today will win a €2k Unibet Open package. Graham Dixon is also on this list. Missed him out by mistake.

14:10: Cards in the air! We're now under way after a short delay. Please comment below if you would like updates on anyone in particular.

14:04: Chip counts, seating and payouts all below...

13:38: Just over 20 minutes till Day 2 starts here at Unibet UK Poker Tour Manchester. Here is the seating draw. Will get the chip counts ASAP.
