Thought I'd watch the first couple of hours. Good start for Cada, he's increased his stack by over 10m already.

One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.

17/210 in the Saturday Sizzler for £250. Reg'd for day 1 with a friend who then came 12th. Nice to both cash in a decent field size. Slightly disappointing to be so card-dead around and after the bubble. Ended up shipping the final ~10BB with A2 into KK and AK which apparently gave me around 8% equity and shockingly didn't get there. Nice to cash but disappointing not to run it up further. £6,000 up top.

William Kassouf has been let go by grovesnor due to beeing caught chip palming in Leeds last weekend.

From what I understand he helped collect a friend's winning from the roulette table and attempted to pocket £100 chip.

Bizarre. He can't be hard up, he cashed for hundreds of thousands of dollars in the main event a few years ago and isn't a bad player.

He claims it's because he was drunk which is odd like you say he can't be shy of a few £'s and his apology on twitter was pretty poor as he didn't explain to people who didn't know what he did wrong.

So I'm going to end this year £9,450 in profit with over £11,000 in live tournament earnings. It's been an absolutely incredible year. Never had a four figure live tournament cash before this year and then three came this year. Was lucky to bink the big ones and lose the smaller ones. Still got a shot at £3,800+ jackpot on the 2nd January if I win the tournament for winning two in a row.

Nice :)

Made day two waiting for the other day 1 to finish so I can see how my stack compares.

Lost a massive all in late in the tournament with 10 10 one short stack shoved and a big stack reshoved. I've played with him a lot and it looked like an isolation move.

Turns out he had AA which held.

Return tomorrow with about 25 BB and a short at 30k+

Finished 78th from 2009 runners for £350 plus I was free rolling.

Got super lucky and cracked AA with KK just after the bubble and then got knocked out with my AK vs QQ for a 1.2 million chip pot!

Chino Rheem just won the PCA Main Event. Guy has won some marquee events over the last decade.

11 of 6,050 last night in a $5 for ~$90 and 4 out of 182 in an $11 for ~$160 yesterday. So disappointing not to close either out. Was $3,500 up top in the $5 daily marathon and I was chip leader with 24 remaining. Ran AKdd into AA on an NFD flop which didn't improve. So, so disappointed.

Edit: Up another $100 while I split-screen with my thesis write-up. 45 of ~1000.

Playing well, running statistically as I should be (not many horrendous beats), just not getting that big score :(
