13th November (Friday)
Didn’t get to bed till 5am having finished 6th in yesterday’s £100 freezeout for £800. Have had a bit of a restless night and have managed less than 4 hours sleep, went down for breakfast at 10am and had a good chat with London based Micky Cook who bust out of the main event yesterday.

Even after having a feed I still feel tired and a bit of a migraine whilst still contemplating whether to buy into the main event today, a walk along the front and I still feel like shit and am not in the frame of mind to sit down and play a £1000 comp esp on Friday 13th.

This evenings £100 side event is sold out with an alternate list already on the go and I hope that Zak has sorted out my registration problem and put me on the starting list for tonight.

My intention is to stay and play the £100 tonight and the (two-dayer) £250 freezeout on Saturday and I’ve got a ticket to play the Sunday Millions on stars this Sunday that has $2.5 million guaranteed to celebrate the fact that punters have won $250 million on the Sunday millions since it started.

Back to bed now to grab a couple of hours sleep before tonights game.

12th November (Thursday)
I get to the casino for around 7pm and the place is packed. I have to go on to the alternate list, as I’m not on the player list even though I paid in - in advance at Walsall.

Still,140 runners and at least 60 names on the alternate list.

I have to wait about 10 minutes to get a seat but they then start falling very quickly.

At the end of level 2 there's 161 runners in the event and a massive £16.100 in the pot.

By the end of level 3 we're down to 127 runners and the ave is at 6300 from a 5k starting stack.

I'm sitting with 10k at the start of level 4 150/300 after I called a raise in the sb with T Q clubs and flopping top two pair, check / call with a Q on the turn I check and oppo goes all in with pocket jacks, “call” I hit the quad's on the river.

I get moved to my new table (11 seat 10) just before the end of level 4 with 9100 with the ave at 7k and 114 runners left in the mix.

I get a double up when I call a raise to 1200 from utg and I'm holding A j suited on the button flop comes A T 6 and utg leads out for 3k so I go all in for another 3500, utg calls reluctantly and flips 89 for the up and down draw. He misses his outs and I'm up to 17k with the ave at 10k.

Towards the end of level 8 with the blinds at 600/1200 and there's a limp utg and then Steve Cleary (a Bridgnorth regular) makes it 3k to go, I find A K clubs in mid position so I push all in for around 21k, utg tanks & then fold's and Steve makes the call with pocket queens, last 3 cards are clubs to give me the nut flush and put me up to 48k with the ave at 20k and 37 runners remaining.

Towards the end of level 13 with the blinds at 3k/6k and 400 ante and I'm on the bb and there's 16 runners left with it paying down to 15 spots, shove from short stack and its another 15k for me to call T 3 spades, I call and I run into K T, the board flushes out for me and puts me up to 115k with the ave at 55k and 15 runners left.

Final table and I've 123k with the ave at 80k we then lose 2 in the first 4 hands.

Zaf Hussein and Richie “mad as a wasp” Whitmore and Val Grey also on the table.

Folds round to me and I’m on the sb for 6000 and I find K7 spades so push and get called by the BB who has A7!!! Shit, that takes 60k out of my stack.

My lady luck ran out and I went out in 6th place blinds still at 6k/12k/500 and I’m down to 80k (6.5 x bb) when my A Q utg all in shove ran into A K, no help on the board and I finish with a profit of £700 for the evenings work.
