UKIPT5 Bristol Day 2: Level 17-22 updates (10,000/20,000 ante 3,000)

August 08, 2015

12:10am: Shola Akindele Deadman eliminated in 12th place (£3,970)
On the very last hand of the night Shola Akindele Deadman busted at the hands of Joseph Lalor in a big pot.

She raised from the button to 40,000 and Lalor smooth called from the small blind. The two of them saw a 2♣2♠5♥ flop and this is where the fireworks happened.

Lalor checked to Akindele Deadman who c-bet 45,000, Lalor check-raised to 200,000 starring at Akindele Deadman as he said the words raise. After some thought she responded by moving all-in for around 615,000 and after rechecking his cards Lalor made the call. It was Akindele Deadman who was first to show, she opened 4♥4♣ but was behind to Lalor’s A♥2♦. The Q♠ turn and 3♥ river changed nothing and after the chips were cut down it was verified that Lalor had her covered and she wished everyone good luck as she left.

That’s it for Day 2, 11 players will return tomorrow at noon to play for the first prize of £58,500 and a UKIPT title. A wrap of today’s action including overnight chip counts is on the way. –NW

11:55pm: Leslie Packer doubles through Richard Otto
A bit of a cooler this one…

Chi Zhang opened to 40,000, Leslie Packer moved all-in for 390,000 and Richard Otto re-raised all-in from the small blind. Back on Zhang he claimed to have folded fives and it was time for showdown.

Packer: Q♥Q♠
Otto: J♦J♣

Otto threw his arms up in the air when he saw the bad news and it didn’t get any better for him on the 4♠5♠6♥3♠A♣ board, he drops to 350,000 whilst Packer climbs to 865,000. –NW

11:45pm: Scott Henry eliminated in 13th place (£3,970)
Brett Angell is up to one million in chips after eliminating Scott Henry.

The UKIPT4 London champion opened to 44,000 with J♦J♠, Henry moved all-in from the small blind for 255,000 with A♥K♥ and Angell called the extra. The Q♦2♠6♥J♥Q♦ board kept Angell in front and Henry said, “good game, good luck everyone as he left. –NW


Scott Henry – 13th

11:20pm: Mulligan furious with something on showdown
Lee Mulligan banged his chest and swore after losing a chunky pot to Pierrick Tallon to drop to 530,000.

He opened to 35,000 from under the gun and called when Tallon three-bet to 70,000 from the next seat. The flop fanned J♠4♠Q♣ and Mulligan check-called 45,000. He did the same for another 100,000 on the Q♥ turn before he bombed for 270,000 on the 2♥ river.

Tallon thought for several minutes and then said, “I’m just going to call” and opened 4♥4♦ for a full house. He moved up to 1.4 million. — MC

10:58pm: Martin Lindner eliminated in 14th place (£3,480)
There was a lull in the action for around 10 minutes before Martin Lindner took his last stand in a pot against Richard Otto.

It all went in pre-flop, Ben Winsor opened the action by raising to 35,000, Otto then three-bet to 100,000 total from the cutoff only for Lindner to move all-in for 335,000 from the small blind. After Winsor folded Otto requested a count, did some maths and then called.

Otto: 8♠8♥
Lindner: A♣J♠

It was a race for Lindner’s tournament life and the pair stayed strong on the 2♣9♣2♥4♥4♣ board to send Lindner out in 14th place. –NW


Lindner lost a rac
10:47pm: Paul Loughlin eliminated in 15th place (£3,480)
Local lad Paul Loughlin soon followed Tim Wright to the payout desk after he fell to Chi Zhang.

Zhang opened to 35,000 from under the gun and was called by Joseph Lalor on the button before Loughlin squeezed all in for 267,000 from the small blind. Zhang moved all in as well and Lalor left them to it.

Loughlin: K♥J♣
Lalor: 10♦10♣

The board ran A♥7♠10♠J♠7♦ and Loughlin wished everyone luck before leaving. Zhang moved up to 1,380,00. — MC

10:35pm: Tim Wright eliminated in 16th place (£3,100)
Tim Wright only had 267,000 chips to play with and he found a big hand to make a move with but he ran into the biggest hand of all to bust.

Pierrick Tallon opened to 40,000 from second position before chip leader Joseph Lalor three-bet to 140,000. Wright was on the button and shoved. Tallon moved in behind and that forced out Lalor.

Tallon: A♠A♥
Wright: A♣K♣

The board ran 8♦9♥2♥10♥10♠ see the aces hold. Tallon passed the million-mark and moved up to 1,150,000. — MC

10:25pm: Winsor more than doubles
Ben Winsor found a good spot to get his chips in and he more than doubled up.

Leslie Packer opened to 33,000 from the cutoff and was called by Scott Henry in the next seat before Winsor squeezed all in for 277,000 from the small blind. Packer tank folded but Henry called.

Winsor: 7♠7♦
Henry: 3♥3♠

The board ran 2♦2♥7♥10♠6♠ to make Winsor a full house. Henry dropped to just over 600,000. — MC

9:40pm:Deborah Worley-Roberts busts 18th (£2,800); Gerwyn Davies busts 17th (£3,100)
Despite busting from the Main Event, Deborah Worley-Roberts was in high spirits. She was down to three big blinds on the bubble so was happy to ladder to where she did.

She explained that she was sat on 14 big blinds when she raised under the gun. Pierrick Tallon called from the big blind and the flop came all low and contained two clubs. Tallon check-raised her all in with a flush draw and Worley-Roberts called off. The turn was a club and that was that for the bubbly Brighton-based American.


Worley-Roberts and her executioner
No details of Davies’ exit but, by lasting a few more minutes, earned himself an extra £300. — MC

9:20pm: Bruce Atkinson eliminated in 19th place (£2,800)
A flurry of pre-flop raising ended with Bruce Atkinson all-in for 220,000 with A♥K♠ and Joseph Lalor the would be executioner with pocket jacks. The 6♣7♦4♦Q♠6♠ board favoured the pair and Atkinson wished the table good luck before heading to the payout desk.

Lalor meanwhile now has 1,070,000 and looks to be the chip leader. –NW

9:15pm: Panteli runs into aces, busts 20th (£2,800)
Mike Panteli’s seep run has come to an end in unfortunate circumstances.
Shola Akindele Deadman opened the pot to 25,000 before Panteli moved all in for 265,000 from the next seat and Christopher Brice did likewise for 370,000 from one more seat along. Akindele Deadman folded.

Panteli: A♥K♣
Brice: A♣A♠

The board ran 5♠5♥3♥K♣6♥ to send tour-regular Panteli home.


Mike Panteli – 20th place

8:55pm: David Lloyd eliminated in 21st place (£2,500)
We missed the exit of the player in 22nd place but can tell you that David Lloyd went in 21st. Down to just 177,000 he moved all-in from the button with pocket sevens and Martin Lindner isolated all-in from the small blind. The German showed A♣Q♥ and got there on the river of a 4♦10♥6♣J♥A♦ board. –NW

8:50pm: Sandro Carucci eliminated in 23rd place (£2,500)
Sandro Carucci was in the big blind and had just 70,000 to play with. They soon went in and he got unlucky to bust.

The action folded around to Brett Angell in the small blind and he moved all in blind without Carucci realising. The Swiss player looked down at his cards, liked what he saw, and called.

Angell: Q♦5♥
Carucci: K♦Q♥

The board ran 6♠5♠3♠Q♣8♣ to make the UKIPT4 London champion two pair. He’s up to 1,006,000 now, not bad considering he started with 56,000 today. — MC


Brett Angell: lucky and good
8:40pm: Patrick Horrocks eliminated in 24th place (£2,200)

8:15pm: Ullah falls in 27th place
Day 1A chip leader Javed Ullah has fallen after an opponent hero called him and then hit a better hand.

He was heads up to a Q♣6♠10♠ flop with Scott Henry and faced a bet for all of his chips, 127,000 of them. He called off with Q♦J♥ which was ahead of Henry’s A♥K♥ but the board ran out 9♦A♦.

Ullah looked destroyed but took the beat with grace. Henry moved up to 865,000. — MC

8:05pm: Fleming doubles through Tallon
Andrew Fleming has doubled to 735,000 through then chip leader Pierrick Tallon, who dropped to 805,000 after the loss.

Fleming bet 70,000 on the turn when the board read K♠A♥8♣4♣. Tallon called and then moved all in for 192,000 (effective) on the J♠ river. Fleming snap called and opened K♥K♦ for a set. Tallon’s A♣J♥ was beat and he paid hid dues. — MC

7:50pm: Chip counts
Below are the chip counts of everyone remaining in this tournament, we could have a second Belgian winner of a UKIPT Main Event title as Pierrick Tallon is the current top dog. The shot of a double UKIPT winner is still alive too as Brett Angell is well placed and with three talented female players in the final 28 the first female winner of a UKIPT Main Event is also a possibility.

A Belgian leads in Bristol
7:50pm: Dan’s deep run comes to an end
Dan Stacey has made yet another deep run on the UKIPT but it’s just come to an end here in Bristol in 28th place.

It was Leslie Packer who did for him with Packer opening from the cutoff, Stacey three-betting from the small blind, Packer jamming and Stacey calling all-in for 299,000. Packer opened A♥K♥ and Stacey was in bad shape as he had A♠Q♣. The 4♣9♣7♣ flop was about as good as it gets for Stacey but he missed all his outs on the 2♦ turn and K♠ river. –NW

7:41pm: Back at it

6:36pm: Misery level ends in defeat for Williams
Dan Williams looked understandably frustrated after he lost a race to David Lloyd to bust.

Lloyd raised and called after Williams moved all in for his last 104,000.

Lloyd: A♠K♠
Williams: 7♦7♥

The board ran A♥9♦J♣6♣5♦ to pair Lloyd’s ace and he moved up to 353,000. — MC

6:30pm: Lindner gets some value from Wootton
Martin Lindner is up to 510,000 after winning a decent sized pot against Matthew Wootton.
It was Wootton who was the pre-flop raiser, he made it 16,000 to go from the hijack, Linder (cutoff) and Bruce Atkinson (button) both called and the three of them saw a 6♣J♣A♦ flop hit the felt.
After Wootton checked Linder bet 33,000 and Wootton was the only caller. He check-called a further 55,000 on the 9♦ turn and both players then checked the 4♠ river with Lindner’s A♣10♣ proving to be the winner.Wootton slips to 240,000 as a result. –NW

6:20pm: Williams slides more as Ullah recovers
Neither Dan Williams or Javed Ullah have enjoyed the last level and a half. Both were near the top of the counts but have slid back down. The two just tangled in a pot and Ullah managed to negate a positional disadvantage to claw some much-needed chips back.

Ullah opened to 16,000 from the cutoff and called when Williams three-bet to 33,000 from the next seat. The flop spread 6♠3♦6♥ and William continued for 23,000 and was check-raised to 52,000 by Ullah. Williams had a look of confusion on his face as he made the call.

The turn was the 3♠ and Ullah moved all in for 87,000. Williams still looked confused and thought for a minute and folded saying, “I think I got away from a cooler there.”

Ullah – 186,000
Williams – 247,000

5:50pm: Cody cold decked
Having come into today as one of the shortest stacks Jake Cody had run it up all the way to 422,000 (about 1.5x the average) before losing the lot in one hand.

In his exit hand Oluwashola Akindele Deadman opened to 12,000, Lee Mulligan flat called and Cody then squeezed to 42,000 with pocket queens, Akindele got out the way and Mulligan then four-bet to 100,000 total.
After thinking it over Cody five bet jammed and Mulligan snap called with aces, there was no help for Cody and when the stacks were counted down it was ascertained that Mulligan had the exact same stack as Cody.

After that hand Mulligan is up to around 880,000. –NW


Cody put up a great fight

LEVEL UP: BLINDS 4,000/8,000, ante 1,000


5:45pm: Aces again for Zhang
Chi Zhang, who held aces in the bubble busting hand earlier, just found them again and used them to eliminate Andreas Kallis and move up to 710,000.

He opened from mid position and called when the short-stacked Kallis moved all in from the blinds.

Zhang: A♣A♥
Kallis: A♠J♥

The board ran 4♦6♦3♣6♥7♠.

“Unlucky,” said Zhang.

“Well done,” came the reply. — MC


Aces all day, baby
5:35pm: End of the road for Baker
Matthew Baker just lost a flip and his place in this tournament. He was all-in for around 70,000 with pocket tens and hoping to fade two overacards as Thomas Clack held K♥Q♥. However, the 7♥Q♣3♦6♥5♠ board favoured Clack and Baker was cooked. –NW

5:30pm: The ups and downs of Dan Williams
Some you win…

and some you lose…

With 500,000 he’s still going very nicely though. –NW

5:25pm: Wooton flops the nuts
“Unlucky,” said Matthew Wootton to David Lloyd although you suspect he didn’t really mean it as he’d just sucked out on him to stay in the tournament.

Wooton three-bet shoved A♠10♠ for 13 big blinds and Lloyd – who was the original raiser – called the shove with A♦J♦. A Q♣K♥J♠ flop was exactly what Wooton wanted and the Q♥ turn and 4♥ river kept him infront.

He’s up to around 180,000 whilst Lloyd is down to 230,000. — NW

5:22pm: No Mulligan allowed for Persaud
Nik Persaud was down to 81,000 when he found a hand to go with but he couldn’t win a race against Lee Mulligan.

He was under the gun when he made his move and Mulligan made the call from mid position.

Persaud: A♠K♣
Mulligan: 9♣9♥

The flop fanned 9♠6♦J♦ and Persaud tapped the table and started to gather his things. The board ran out A♠K♣. — MC

5:10pm: Hughes shoves into elimination
Tim Hughes was the latest player to bust after he shoved from the button. It was for 55,000 and Jack Thompson made the call from the big blind.

Hughes: K♣10♦
Thompson: A♠J♣

The board ran J♥9♠6♥4♣6♦.

Ryan Spittles was another casualty just before Hughes busted. — MC
