Cheers Eff,

Thanks for spotting that, I'll ask that it's fixed but it'll probably be sometime tomorrow before it is

That will be at least interesting, gl everyone!

Currently limbering up to take the bounty, its the only way I personally make any money on this tourney.
I think we should get something for knocking out Daleroxxu too!

$500 sounds a bit much for a bounty, I'd rather see $100 bounty and $900 added.

Which reminds me, Bet Fred had $1,000 on his head one game many years ago. I flat called him AA and he shoved JTo .......... BOOOOM! He hit his 2 pair on the river That's a hand that's stuck with me over the years

Hi,

Just registered had see we have Dale Philip @Dalroxxu in the tournament.

He just "finished 30th for €4,800. Gutted." in the Galway UKIPT event. Looking for some extra bounty here boo... not fair.

Not sure who got him.. I didn't see him once actually but I did see just about every other PSO member. Perhaps we'll find out later on twitter or in his forum blog.

Well done to those who cashed! Not easy I know, I went from top 10 stack to busto very quickly

I know that disappointment when you make it deep, and then the cards don't go your way - but that's a super nice cash ... 500% ROI is awesome!! Tough field too, so just cashing is something to be proud of. Big congrats to Dale!!

Guess the last thing he would have wanted to do was go from playing a €1000 tourney with Isildur and Gus Hansen in the pool, to playing a $1 tourney with us LOL!! (Due to fatigue, etc) Especially with fish like me with pet-in-hat avis But it was fun just to see his name in the mix, so that was nice of him to register even if he couldn't make it - it's exciting when these red spades come and play with us, isn't it? (it's even fun when they can't make it)

I got Felix at my table once too, but he folded before me, and all I had was like 35o or whatever. But even if I had AKs, I've played him before and he kicked my @ss, so ... I would have been happy just to min-cash with this thing - PSO tourneys are always so tough!


GL to everybody still in it - I'm out AKs < 88

PS Really enjoyed this tourney - thanks PSO!!

Hi Sam

Yes saw Dale (think he was playing turbo deepstack €165) Felix was on my table once. Don't know who picked up the $500 KO.

I'm out now too. Didn't really like it much so many sit outs and people tanking a long time before folding it's called Zoooooooooooooooooooooooooom.

Dale is a genuine "little guys" player that loves educating and mixing with people that admire his style.

I'm certainly a fan.
