Much quieter than Friday, with the Main & Mini just narrowly covering. That "new" £16.50 entry £1,000 guaranteed at 9pm is interesting. On Friday it got 86 entries & made £1,290, last night 50 entries & missed by £250. That's a £500 swing in 24 hours in a £1,000 comp. Bizarrre.
Tonight will be fun, with England v Senegal kicking off at 7pm. Bloodbath expected. In the poker, I mean...
Last night was all about a very interesting semi-newcomer in @Tastysnack
. Joined Sky Poker on 30th December last year & played the UKOPS Main, finishing 10th, then played a few biggies in February, running 2nd in Summit & 4th in a Major in the same week. Pretty much disappeared then until last month, & now seems to be cashing for fun, & pulled off an eye-opening win treble last night, taking the £1k BH, the Main, & the 9pm £16.50er. On Friday was 3rd in Avenger Main, & on Thursday won the Rebuy BH & was 2nd in the Main. Nobody is doing better right now & it will be interesting to see how he develops. Could just be heater time, but could just as likely be a bit special. We shall see. PS - when you are hot you are hot; he also won £100 in today's Daily Draw. Note also in the last 3 nights he has finished 1st, 2nd & 3rd in the Main. @BEANIE
took the Mini for the second time, also has sundry other wins including Reload & MidEx. @Asho28
who has been AWOL for a week or so was an excellent 6th. @bigzeus
has not been seen in these threads since finishing 2rd in a 7 @ 7 18 months ago, but he returned in style last night by winning it. Very pleased to see a good run into 5th by @bettingben
who has been doing well recently in MML & FTT. @corlex
turns up most nights & just single tables the Rebuy BH & he took his maiden win last night. @AnimalFarm
who inadvertently started a contentious Forum thread was 4th. He only joined last month, has played just 67 MTT's & has been cashing regularly. Seems a decent sort judging by his Forum posts.
I assume @HurriKane
is a play on England striker Harry Kane, well if you want an omen, he won last night's Quickdraw, was 2nd in the Rebuy BH, & won himself £100 in the Daily Draw.
That's it for today, enjoy tonight's football, & spare a thought for Sky Poker who have held tonight's guarantees & fully expect to take a bath.
