16:23: Ross Loggie joined us today from Edinburgh:

16:21: Rob Franks wishes good luck to all Flight C players today. Rob made it through from Flight B last night with a nice 163,500 stack so we'll see him back for Day 2 tomorrow at 12pm.

16:20: David Girdwood is here. He was a wee bit upset that he wasn't featured on the Top Trumps on the Flight A blog. If he makes Day 2 maybe I'll be generous and pull one together for him...

16:19: John Angus is here looking for his 6th 25/25 Series cash. He's already leading everyone else with 5.

16:16: Just got the table draw for today. Up to 39 entries.

16:09: Our Aberdeen Strategy Correspondent, Lewis Fowler, is in the field today. He provided insights on the table draws for Flights A & B over the last couple of days and also gave us permission to include the FRS (Fowler Ranking System) on the blog. Best of luck to him today.

16:03: Olga Korchmar has been following the Aberdeen poker scene for a long time. I caught up with her this afternoon to ask who she thought would win the 25/25 weekend and she said, "I can't see past Roy Rimmer. He's always been a star player in my eyes. He's so sexy too."

Roy hasn't played so far but maybe he'll make an appearance at Flight C today. One to watch...

16:01: Quickly up to 35, and the guarantee has already been exceeeded. Lots of players with "Kort & Cognac" t-shirts in the field today:

15:58: Starting now with 27 players:

15:51: Please keep your tweets coming all day with #2525aberdeen - thanks!

15:50: David Girdwood is wearing his lucky pants so watch out for a solid performance from him...

15:47: Already 18 people registered to start play at 4pm today.

15:45: Here is the 25/25 Series Scotland Gallery of Champions. A new face, or perhaps the first repeat offender, will be added tomorrow night!

15:38: Aberdeen lost a popular poker player this week in Mike Larkins who sadly passed away on Wednesday. Stuart Wilson has written a few words about Mike below:

Mike Larkins was a true gent who loved his game of poker and played at both G Aberdeen and Rainbow. Mike was one of the original Aberdeen crew who played in Dundee 20+ years ago when it was the Mecca for Poker. Mike always had time for everyone and always had a smile on his face. Whenever he lost a hand, the same statement would come out "Unbaaaleevable" and a shake of the head! Certainly a character who will be missed by many... RIP Mike Larkins

15:30: Here we go! The last flight for 25/25 Series Aberdeen starts in 30 minutes and you can register up until 6.15pm.
