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 :eek: :eek:

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 :p :) :)

Roll on 2008
