Cooney Out

Tony Cooney
Tony Cooney
Tony Cooney is out at the hands of Tony G.

G limps on the button. Cooney raises.

G reraises, putting Cooney all in. "I'll gamble with you," he says. Cooney calls.

Tony G: {A-Spades}{10-Spades}{Q-Clubs}{A-Clubs}
Cooney: {A-Hearts}{A-Diamonds}{8-Hearts}{3-Clubs}

Flop {8-Spades}{3-Spades}{6-Diamonds} - giving Cooney two pair

Turn is {4-Spades}, giving Tony a flush.

River is {6-Hearts}. They shake hands and Cooney is gone

"These are the hands I play well," he says. "I lulled him into a false sense of security."

"Nice Hand"

Happy Rafi
Happy Rafi
Rafi Amit had doubled through courtesy of WSOP finalist Erik Friberg, his initial 15k bet on a {4-Hearts}{10-Spades}{4-Diamonds} flop leading to a deep reach by the Swede and a subsequent shove of blue 5k chips.

Rafi instacalled with {10-Hearts}{J-Spades}{4-Spades}{Q-Hearts} only to find Friberg mucking his hand without even wanting to see the remaining cards. The {8-Diamonds} turn and {2-Hearts} river were apparently academic, leaving Friberg with a face like a bulldog chewing a wasp on a nettle and a rather depleted stack.

"Nice hand," he praised dejectedly.

Vygaard says Bye-gaard

Vegard Nygaard has just got his last few chips in the middle against Julian Adamson:

Nygaard: {J-Hearts}{Q-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}{K-Diamonds}

Adamson: {Q-Clubs}{Q-Spades}{J-Spades}{9-Hearts}

Flop: {5-Clubs}{2-Spades}{6-Spades}

Turn: {9-Clubs}

River: {Q-Diamonds}

"One Time!" exclaimed Adamson as the river hit.

Because he was happyy.

The Booze Bus

Party Time!
Party Time!
Welcome back, folks, to what should be a thrilling Day 2 of this £5,000 Omaha event.

Leicester Square, and thus the Empire Casino, is a little calmer today, and from a biased point of view, I couldn't be happier. Our laptops are perched on the side of the room with the tables just a few yards away, but within that gap is room for the hoards of drunken Friday and Saturday night just-come-out-of-the-pub-so-let's wander-into-the-casino non poker fans to gather. Cue, continual "What are you doing?" and "Is that guy with the cowboy hat famous?" questions, in addition to random people hopping onto my computer while I'm away to check their emails.

And then there's the ghastly journey home on the bus of doom. I can easily handle a few drunks, but when you're exhausted after a long day and just want to get home, listening to people argue about why someone looked at them funny, waiting patiently while bus drivers try to throw ticket dodgers off and shuffling nervously across your seat as the semi-concious guy in the neighbouring seat prepares to vomit into your lap is enough to test anyone's patience.

However, the weekend, and the weekly drinkathon, is almost over, and as previously stated, there's a peaceful, serene atmosphere bobbing around today, so I'm in much better spirits and thoroughly looking forward to some hot poker action, not to mention a quieter journey home. Plus, and please don't tell my better half this, the showgirls provide enough eye candy to maintain an alligator smile on my easily pleased face.

Your current chip leader in Scandinavian Jon Persson with 186,500, with PokerNews' own Tony G not too far behind in 4th with 142,500. Can you feel his pooooower.
