25/25 Series Dundee V - Day 2 - Level 11 (1000/2000/200)

by MARTIN J SMITH on 24th January 2016 @ 11:38


12:44: Reports from Table 3 that Colin Gillon and David Gillies are out from the same hand. 41 remain. Average stack 110k.

12:38: Table 2, David Weeks (below left) opens the cut-off for 4.5k, Tat Ieong (below right) calls on the Button but Owen Currie in the BB is not impressed and 3bets to 12.5k (with about 43k behind which both opponents cover). David has a think, takes a good look at Tat, perhaps to get in idea what he is going to do, but then folds. Tat quickly folds too. Pot to Currie.

12:27: Double up for Gary Gracey! After a limper he made it 6.5k pre-flop and is called by Duncan Taylor in position and Kurt Hansson on the BB. Flop Th9s5s and Gary bets 6.5k again. Duncan raises to 15k but Kurt makes it 45k after that! Gary calls for his 43.7k total and Duncan gets away from it. Gary shows 55 for a Set and Kurt, a slow-played KK. Gary holds and is now nicely around 125k in chips. Duncan told the table he folded QQ afterwards.

12:24: 3 more quick eliminations on the outer tables. Edinburgh Champ George Devine, John Kelly and Dean Thomson are all reporting to the rail. Down to 43 players.

12:21: Bit of action between Tat Ieong and Ross Loggie on Table 2. Tat raised Ross' Flop bet to 15k on Qc5d3d and Ross called. On the 6c Turn Ross called another 25k but both checked the 7c River and Tat took it down with JJ in the hole.

12:16: Next hand Murray raises to 4.5k on the Button after Ducan Taylor limped for 2k. Duncan called for heads up but folded to Muarry's 8k Flop bet on Q96.

12:14: On Table 1, Kinman Li opens to 5k UTG, called by Shane Ross in position and Murray Angus in the BB. Flop Qs8s6c. I missed the Flop betting but Murray ended up heads up with Shane on the 7d Turn and check/called a bet. When the 3c hit the River Murray check/called 11k and won with 8h7h for 2 pair. Shane tabled AQ for Top Pair which he must have thought was good. Murray started the day with a ridiculous 369k and he's only getting richer.

12:10:  A few players still to arrive including Graham Pilkington. Oh, here he is now.

12:05: Early exit. Kurt Hansson opens to 6k, Rami Saleh calls then Andrew MacRae jams all in from the SB for about 50k. Kurt folds but Rami decides to go for it and calls with his 43k stack. He has 77 but is against Andrew's Jacks. Andrew hits a set and Rami is out in 47th place.
