Vegas will have to wait for me
The Hendon Mob WSOP
play-off lasted just under 3 hours im afraid to say Vegas wont have the pleasure of my company this year
Only 1 player out in the first hour at which time i was 3rd placed.
The next hour cards where looking scarce but i manged to keep going with small raises against the smaller stacks.
A big moment came when one of the favs went out QQ v AK with an A on the flop knocking him out.
So after 104 hands it happened dealt J10 on BB with one min raiser facing me (he had been raising a lot earlier so was not surprised and just called to see the flop)
J,3,4 on flop i raised half the pot and he pushed all-in, this was a surprise after just a min-raise and considering i had top pair.
With no straight or flush showing - i called and over came AA
A King and Queen show their heads teasingly but the plane to Vegas had flown and i felt like i had left my luggage on board
The two popular favs to win went out in the following two hands as well four to do battle after the 2nd break.
Shaundead won the heads-up over Mr Pacto and will be sitting down to play the main event and a big congratulations to him.
Already thinking of the next league later this year - but for now, those fish had better look out
Roll on 2008
