Then on Tuesday I managed to win a seat to the WSOPE last chance game on Betfair, 212 runners and 5 seats to the WSOPE up for grabs. Very nice structure, 5000 starting chips with a 20 min clock.

Started well, very mixed bag of players from the absolute loons to very decent players. At first break I was upto 8k. Second session and was totally card dead but managed to stay in. By the third break though I was beginning to struggle, hadn't had any pairs over nines. Got dealt 88 in the sb, folded to me so I push, bb calls with AT, my eights hold up and I am back in it.

Then a few hands in the space of about ten. Firstly I get JJ, guy in ep makes it 2400, blinds 400/800. I flat call, which I shall forever kick myself for, guy after me goes all in, guy in ep calls and I have to believe that my jacks are behind so I fold. Guy in ep has 77 and other guy has AQ. The sevens hold up.

Next hand I get TT, raise to 2400 and solid guy puts me all in, once again I feel that I have to fold.

Now down to about 6 x bb's, find 55 utg and push just hoping that I can get through, all fold and I am still alive. A few hands later I get AKd, push all in and guy after me raises. All the rest fold, he has AKh. Flop Js 6h 4c, looks like a split pot which I am happy with, then came the turn 7h, no please, not a heart on the river! River 9h. Gone to a runner runner flush in 30th.

Felt that I was playing to my best, was only playing the one game as wanted to concentrate so was absolutely gutted. Some things are never meant to be I guess :-(

Off to London tomorrow for the Betfair forum game. Team game Friday night and main event on the Saturday. In the Flashmob team and truly believe we have a chance of winning even though not many others do.

Went last year and it is a great weekend. Some great, friendly people and good fun. Hopefully next post will be a full winning report!!

Gl in your games,
