Stuart Guthrie Doubles Through Andreea Enache

Yardley • Level 11: 1,200-2,400, 300 ante

There was an open to 5,500 before it got to Stuart Guthrie who moved all in from the cut-off for 36,500.

Andreea Enache in the big blind asked for a count and moved all in over the top.

The original raiser thought for a while but let it go.

“I only went in because you made it fifty five,” Guthrie said and turned over {5-Clubs}{5-Hearts}.

Enache showed {9-Hearts}{9-Clubs}.

A run out of {5-Spades}{4-Diamonds}{q-Clubs}{8-Spades}{a-Hearts} gave Guthrie a set on the flop and a handy double up and a bit of joking from the other players at the table.

Jim Manlove Busts

Yardley • Level 11: 1,200-2,400, 300 ante

It’s been a rollercoaster day for Jim Manlove and his tournament has finally hit the buffers.

Facing off against two opponents he was all in for 32,000 on the turn of a board reading {q-Diamonds}{10-Hearts}{5-Diamonds}{q-Clubs}.

There was action between the two other players and Manlove suspected he was in big trouble. He was.

When the cards were turned, over he showed {10-Clubs}{8-Clubs} but his opponent had him crushed with {a-Diamonds}{q-Spades}.

Seven hours after he had sat down, Manlove was out and unsure at that point if he would be back to fire again. See you tomorrow Jim!

Terry Jordon Still Out Front

Yardley • Level 11: 1,200-2,400, 300 ante

Terry Jordon continues to lead the tournament while one table over, our friend Anon Player has topped the 400k mark and a mystery man in a zipped up anorak is closing in on Jordon.

Three more 40-minute levels to play before they bag and tag.

Jordon joked at the break that he was feeling tired and ready to gamble so anything could happen.

Full names and counts will be made available after they bag up.
