Mad Marty and spivver over see the games and they are all dealer dealt.
I crashed out of last nights £200 down at Walsall when I got involved in a hand with the Mad Turk and I floped a flush, J9c in the hole - 10 7 2 board, 4 clubs on the turn and it's all in the middle and Turk has Qc 10h and get the bigger draw.
I then go out of the £50 Triple chance after the break when I get it in - in good shape with A8 hearts v K 2 spades, 2A5 flop and a K on the turn to seal the deal.
