20:02: Ronnie opens the next pot and wins that with no contest.

20:01: Limp for 16k from Ronnie Ballantyne but he folds, as does everyone else, when Andrew Fulton shoves for about 340k.

19:59: On the other table Jose "Russo333" Placido makes it 56k from the cut-off. No callers. Shows Q3o.

19:58: Darren Tomlinson opens the Button for 37k. No callers. He shows an Ace.

19:55: Here's the latest with 14 left:

19:50: Richard Watson out in 15th for £300. His 22 all in pre-flop no good vs Ronnie Ballantyne's Aces.

19:46: Jamie Whyte all in pre-flop with 66 vs Ben Caird's KK. No suckout and Jamie is out in 16th for £300.

19:45: Big one on Table 2. Craig Smith opens the Button to 32k and Jim Glen 3bets to 66k from the BB. Craig peels. Flop QhJh6d. Jim bets 100k, Craig calls. Turn 8s. Jim bets 175k, Craig calls. Craig has about 350k behind and Jim 700k. River 7s and Jim immediately shoves all in. The pot is around 700k already before Jim's shove. Craig thinks it over but elects to fold in the end. He asks Jim to "show one time". Jim declines.

19:40: Talal Hamodi been spinning up his stack. Maybe 450-500k now.

19:36: Another double up for Ronnie Ballantyne all in pre-flop with K9 vs A4.

19:27: Double up for Donald Cumming. His A7 all in pre-flop sucking out vs A9. He has about 200k now.

19:25: Colin Malcolm (A6) shoves his last 81k all in and is called by Craig Smith (55). Craig holds and Colin is out in 17th for £250.

19:20: Gary Scullion on fire on Table 1. He doubles up through Peter Scott then straight after takes out Paul Brown. Paul finishes in 18th for £250. Looks like Gary has around 900k now! Quite a spin up.

19:14: Darren Tomlinson opens to 27k, Colin Malcolm calls in postion then Andrew Fulton ships for 219k. Darren folds but Colin calls after a painful deliberation. He has AQ and is against Andrew's KK. The Cowboys hold and Colin is now short.

19:10: Still on Table 2, Alen Wilkie opens to 24k UTG. Chip Leader Jim Glen 3bets to 60k. Alen folds.

19:07: On Table 2, Ronnie Ballantyne open-shoves all in. No takers.

18:48: Meanwhile Ronnie Ballantyne was also all in for 102k but was ahead with QQ and doubled up through Alen Wilkie's 88.

18:47: Bubble burst! Dennis Shaw is out in 19th place. He shoved from the SB for his last 70k or so with 94o and was called blind by Talal Hamodi who had J7. Talal hit Trips to eliminate Dennis.

18:43: Ben Caird opens to 25k and Gary ships again. A little over 200k now. Ben, with him covered by less than 50k, folds after they have a friendly wee look into each others' eyes and shows 99. Gary shows AJ.

18:40: Gary Scullion shoves all in from the SB for about 180k. Jose Placido folds his BB. Gary shows KQo.

18:39: 2 big stacks playing a pot there on Table 3: Craig Smith and Jim Glen. Didn't catch the pre-flop action but Craig check/called the Flop and Turn then folded the River to Jim's 100k bet.

18:37: A 28k raise from Jim Glen there. No callers.

18:36: Stephen Bradshaw wins a pot with the worst hand vs Dennis Shaw. Stephen raises the next pot again and takes that one too with no contest.

18:33: Darren Tomlinson takes down the blinds and antes with a 27k open on Table 3. Meanwhile on Table 2, Talal Hamodi shoves all in for about 150k and does the same.

18:29: Someone has proposed a £200 saver for 19th place with the money coming from 1st place. Quickly objected to by at least one player so we continue as before.

18:25: We are still playing Hand for Hand with 19 left on the Bubble here at the Tartan Poker event at Alea Glasgow. Here's the scene:
