UKIPT4 Nottingham 6-max: Day 3 level 17-20 updates (6,000/12,000, 1,000 ante)

4.35pm: Break time
The players are now on a 15 minute break. You'll find level 21 updates in a new post. -- NW

4.30pm: Sykes wins a big one from Clifton-Burraway
I only caught the action from the turn, but Jamie Sykes fired out 75,000 into a pot of 130,000 with the board showing K♥2♣[10s]9♠ after a long tank David Clifton-Burraway made the call.

The 8♦ completed the board, Sykes went deep, betting 300,000 which was about the size of the pot. Cue a longer tank from Clifton-Burraway but an eventual fold. -- NW

4.25pm: Mayhew doubles up, a broken man
Ben Mayhew may be still in the Main Event, but it's coming at a price. He just "got lucky" a third time and plays on, albeit sheepishly.

This latest hand came against Sergio Aido. Mayhew shoved with Q♦T♦ and Aido called, turning over K♠K♣. The flop looked suspicious, coming J♦3♦9♠. then a turn card K♥ and a river card Q♥.

To look at Mayhew was to see a man busted and broken. Actually he was alive and embarrassed, the straight doubling him up.

"Please leave that one off," he said, looking over at me. "Can't have three in a row like that." -- SB

4.15pm: Brammer among the leaders
Chris Brammer has leapt towards the chip lead in a massive hand against big stack Tony Salmon.

With the board already reading 9♥9♣T♦Q♥ Salmon checked to Brammer who bet 60,000. Salmon then check-raised to 150,000. Brammer tanked for a while. Then quietly, but with his usual conviction, announced that he was all in. Salmon called in a flash and turned over J♠9♠. But Brammer had that beaten, turning over J♦K♠ for the straight. The river, a 2♠ changed nothing. Suddenly Brammer is up to more than a million, whilst Salmon drops to a little less. - SB

4.05pm: David Price doubles through Ben Vinson
From the cut-off David Price opened to 26,000, one seat along Ben Vinson bumped it to 56,000, Price then shoved for 300,000 total and Vinson called it off.

Price: J♦J♥
Vinson: K♠Q♦

It was a race, but not for long as the run out was J♣4♦3♦6♥9♦ to boost Price to 600,000 and drop Vinson to 730,000. -- NW

3.55pm: All change
With a new seat draw it was all change for the players who racked up their chips and went in search of their new seat. All except for Ganesh Jayaraman who could carry his chips and his fork, but not his plate of food.

From the off Ben Vinson came out firing. Sergio Aido opened for 25,000 in the hijack. Vinson then made it 58,000 on the button before Aido four-bet 142,000. Vinson had a solution to this nonsense, which was to shove, which he did, getting an immediate fold from Aido. - SB

Richie Lawlor


Blinds up: 12,000/24,000, ante 2,000

3.35pm: Joe Laming eliminated in 13th place (£6,100)
Whilst David Clifton-Burraway was still stacking chips we had another all-in and call on a different table.

Pre-flop Joe Laming raised to 23,000 from the cut-off, Tony Salmon three-bet to 56,000 on the button and Laming made the call. The flop fell K♥[10s]3♥, Salmon c-bet 81,000, Laming check-raised all-in for 332,000 and after getting a count Salmon made the call.

Laming: J♥9♥
Salmon: A♥[10h]

The 8♦ turn gave Laming some straight outs but he missed them all on the 3♠ river. Salmon now up to 1.1M.

There's now a short break whilst they redraw to the final two tables. -- NW

3.30pm: Abhishek Khaitan eliminated in 14th place (£5,300)
The pace of play just refuses to be anything other than all the way up to eleven.

Abhishek Khaitan has just succumbed to David Clifton-Burraway in a pot that has seen the latter climb to 1.15M.

I only saw the hand when the cards were on their backs, Clifton-Burraway held Q♠Q♥ and Khaitan had Q♣9♣ and the full board was 3♠[10s]Q♦8♠K♣. After he'd finished stacking his chips Clifton-Burraway told me that Khaitan had flat called pre-flop, check-raised the flop and then shoved the turn.

News of another exit coming right up. -- NW

3.30pm: Action, action and, oh yes, more action
Right where to start, how about with how Jamie Sykes is up to over a million.

Richie Lawlor opened to 20,000 on the button, Ben Spraggons three-bet to 53,000 from the small blind, Jamie Sykes then cold four-bet to 107,000 from the big blind. Lawlor passed, Spraggons shipped for 315,000 and Sykes snap called.

Spraggons: A♣Q♣
Sykes: A♥K♥

The [10d]6♦7♥3♦4♠ board kept Sykes in the lead and sent Spraggons to the rail in 15th place.

Meanwhile on table 11 the best ace was not holding up. Ben Mayhew had opened to 20,000 on the button, Sergio Aido three-bet to 53,000, Mayhew moved all-in for 284,000 and Aido called.

Mayhew: A♦[10h]
Aido: A♠K♥

The Q♥K♦6♦ flop was definitely near the top of Mayhew's wish list, the 7♦ turn another good card for him and the 3♦ a belter. Aido leaned backed in his seat and took a sip of his beer as he took in the beat. He's still the chip leader with 1.3M though. "No wonder you can afford shirts like that," quipped Joe Laming to Mayhew as he stacked his chips. -- NW

3.15pm: Leonov out amid a flurry of all-ins
Viktor Leonov is the next faller, another victim of Sergio Aido. Leonov got his chips in with pocket nines against Aido's ace-king. An ace hit first on the flop, infuriating Leonov who found nothing else to help him. Out in 16th place while Aido pushes the 2 million mark.

Elsewhere there were all-ins galore, most of which came from Ben Mayhew who, reduced to 69,000. Mayhew confessed to wanting out, thanks to some earlier mishaps that had dampened his spirit somewhat. So he shoved, three times actually, without any takers. Each time he would enjoy an elaborate--ironic--celebration.

Ben_Mayhew_ukiptd3.jpg
Ben Mayhew

Meanwhile Ben Spraggers called all in with A♦6♥ against the opening shove with K♠9♠. The board ran 8♦5♥J♥7♣9♥. Spragger saw the nine on the river and assumed he was out. But it was pointed out to him he'd made a straight. Spraggers confessed he was worried only of a king or a nine.

Back with Ben Mayhew and a first proper double up, coming through Tim Wong. Mayhew had found A♠4♦ against Wong's 9♥9♣. Mayhew hit the ace on the flop, the board running 3♣8♠A♥T♣7♦. A good double for Mayhew who seems less keen to depart now.

There was one last double to report, this one for Ben Vinson through Abhishek Khaitan. The chips were being repackaged as we caught up with it, Vinson showing ace-jack with two jacks on the flop against Khaitan's ace-queen. Vinson now up to around 850,000. - SB

3.05pm: Aido laying down the law
Two of the big stacks just clashed on table 11 with Sergio Aido coming out on top. He opened to 22,000 from the cut-off, Tim Wong three-bet to 72,000 from the button and Aido responded with more aggression, making it 185,000 total. After a long old think Wong sent his cards into the muck. -- NW

3pm: Nigel Pemberton eliminated in 17th place (£4,700)
After Richie Lawlor opened to 20,000 from the cut-off Nigel Pemberton moved all-in for 143,000 from the small blind. Back on Lawlor he counted out the call, counted out his remaining chips (roughly 335,000) and then made the call.

Lawlor: 2♦2♥
Pemberton: A♥K♥

The 7♠[10c]J♦2♣9♦ board kept Lawlor in front and he's now up to 625,000. -- NW

2.50pm: Riziotis out in 18th
There was no way back for the shortest of the 18 stacks as Iason Riziotis is out...

It folded to Joe Laming in the small blind he had A♣K♣ and set Riziotis in for his 11 big blinds, Riziotis called it off with K♣J♥ and watched on as the board ran 3♠3♥2♣4♣Q♣. Laming up to 500,000 as a result. -- NW

2.40pm: Down to 18
Simon Deadman has finally given up the ghost. After a spirited fight when his stack was cut short in an earlier all-in, Deadman called all in from the big blind with K♠8♣ after Ben Vinson shoved in the small blind with K♦T♠.

The board ran 2♣6♥A♣8♥T♥ to send Deadman out in 20th place.

With the elimination of Colin Tang play stopped with 18 players remaining. When Abhishek Khaitan opened for 23,000 Tang shoved for 180,000 and Khaitan called, turning over A♥J♥ against Tang's J♠J♣.

The board ran 3♣6♦T♦A♦T♣, the turn card giving Khaitan a stack worth nearly one million and ending Tang's day in 19th place.

Details of the three-table re-draw coming shortly. - SB

2.01pm: Break
The players are now on a 20 minute break. -- NW

2pm: Sykes up, Riziotis down
James Sykes has doubled up. When Iason Riziotis shoved Sykes called all-in immediately, turning over A♥K♠. Riziotis was behind, turning over K♦Q♦.

The board ran 7♦J♦J♠8♣2♣ to the delight of Sykes. The pot was worth 239,000 which keeps Sykes alive a little longer, while Riziotis drops to 140,000 going into the break. - SB

1.55pm: Ben Spraggons doubles through Ben Vinson
It was the battle of the Ben's and this round has gone to Spraggons. He opened to 16,000 from under-the-gun, Vinson moved all-in for an effective 143,000 from the small blind and Spraggons said ok.

Spraggons: A♠Q♥
Vinson: A♥7♦

The 6♣8♥3♥A♣2♠ board kept Spraggons in front and he doubled to around 300,000 whilst Vinson is down to 370,000. -- NW

1.40pm: Akadiri doubles to put nail in coffin of Deadman
Charles Akadiri moved all-in with pocket nines which was called by Simon Deadman with ace-queen. The board ran 4♣J♥3♠T♥8♥ to double Akadiri while Deadman, reduced to less than 90,000 had work to do.

He was soon all-in. With his table four-handed he shoved with Q♣J♠ for 72,000 in what was effectively the button. Iason Riziotis was in the small blind and was ready to call with A♣9♥. The board ran 7♠K♣K♦9♣J♥ to double Deadman. - SB

1.20pm: Sergio Aido eliminates John Eames; claims the chip lead
Wowsers, we've just had the biggest pot of the tournament so far, a near million chip monster that has vaulted UKIPT3 London champion Sergio Aido to the chip lead and sent the dangerous John Eames to the rail.

Pre-flop Eames raised to 16,000 on the button, Aido three-bet to 44,000 from the small blind and Eames smooth called. The flop came 9♣K♣4♣ Aido c-bet 57,000, Eames raised to 122,000, Aido moved all-in and Eames called all-in for roughly 400,000 total.

Eames: A♣[10s]
Aido: 4♥4♠

The Spaniard was a 71% favourite to win the pot and the chip lead, but should Eames make his flush he would have the chip lead. The turn was the [10d] and the river the 8♥. Eames shook the hands of his opponents as he left the table, Aido now has roughly 1,050,000 and the chip lead. -- NW

ukipt4_nottingham_day3_sergio_aido.jpg

Sergio Aido

1.20pm: Sherwood out
Robert Sherwood is out in 23rd place. His was one of the more painful departures. Moments before he'd been on the verge of eliminating David Clifton-Burraway when the latter had moved in with pocket jacks. Sherwood called with ace-king but the board allowed the jacks to hold.

While Clifton-Burraway now had more than 200,000 Sherwood was reduced to about 75,000. He got this in good a few hands later, again against Clifton-Burraway, ace-eight vs. ace-deuce. All looked fine until the river, when a deuce promptly arrived to make this a forgettable afternoon for Sherwood.

He graciously wishes the others good luck as he walked bewildered to the rail. - SB

1.10pm: Bedi busts
Rupinder Bedi's reprieve didn't last long. He shoved for 16 big blinds with K♠8♠ over the top of Chris Brammer's open only for Ganesh Jayaraman to find aces in the small blind. The aces held and we're now down to 24 players. -- NW

Blinds up: 4,000/8,000, ante 1,000

1.05pm: Brammer up again, Mullin out
There must be something terrible about playing against Brammer, betting and watching him pause for a second. In this case he paused to ask Laming and Jayaraman how many chips they had. Then he four bet, making it 80,000 to play. Jayaraman passed leaving Laming to take on the chip leader. He tanked for a moment but declined the opportunity, folding and sending another sizeable pot to Brammer uncontested.

Emmett Mullin meanwhile is the 26th place finisher. He shoved with ace-king and looked good up against Richard Lawlor's king-queen. But crucially the king-queen were hearts. There were two hearts on the flop, and a third on the river. - SB

ukipt4_nottingham_day3_chris_brammer.jpg

The irrepressible Chris Brammer

1pm: Leonov levels Gavriel
Over on table 14 premium hands are definitely not at a premium. Just minutes after Rupinder Bedi doubled through Chris Brammer, a clash of two more top tier hands did for Nicholas Gavriel.

The action was started by Ganesh Jayaraman, he opened to 13,000, Viktor Leonov flat called and Gavriel then made it 48,000 to go. When it got back to Jayaraman he passed, but Leonov asked Gavriel for a count (he had about 160,000 back), Leonov moved all-in and Gavriel snap called.

Leonov: K♦K♠
Gavriel: Q♦Q♣

Gavriel looked disgusted when he saw Leonov's hand and it didn't get any better for him as the K♥J♥5♦2♥6♦ board kept Leonov in front and sent Gavriel to the rail in 27th place. -- NW

12.50pm: Brammer and Eames up as Jones departs
John Eames is up to 400,000 after a pot against Richard Lawlor. On a flop of Q♥2♦7♥ Eames, in the big blind, checked to Lawlor who bet 16,000, which Eames then called for a A♥ turn card. Now Eames led the betting, making it 28,000 to play. That was enough to persuade Lawlor things were against him.

A table along there was a mess for Viktor Leonov on Chris Brammer's table.

On a flop of 5♠8♦3♦ the action was checked to Joe Laming who bet 22,000. Chris Brammer then made it 60,000 but when it came to Leonov he called the 22,000 in error. He now had the option of either calling the 60,000 or losing the 22,000. He decided to call, for a turn card Q♥.

Leonov then checked to Brammer who immediately seied on Leonov by moving all-in. It was a hand Leonov would rather forget. He passed.

There will be no more hands in this event for David Jones. He just departed in 28th place after shoving with ace-jack. Ben Vinson had pocket queens which held true on a 2♦2♣8♠K♦8♥ board. Vinson is up to 600,000, while the field drops to 27. -- SB

12.45pm: Bedi doubles through Brammer
A much needed double up for Rupinder Bedi and it's come at the expense of Chris Brammer, who is still the chip leader despite this dent.

Bedi three-bet shoved for 72,000 from the button over the top of Brammer's open from the cut-off, Brammer called quickly with pocket jacks, but Bedi had him pipped with pocket queens. The 7♠A♥4♠[10c]A♦ kept him in front and he doubles to around 150,000 whilst Brammer is down to 720,000. -- NW

12.35pm: Easy come easy go for Kular
Just one hand after hitting the river to survive Sarbit Kular, he was out. He got it in with A♦K♠ against Adam Forsyth's pocket queens and the pair held and indeed improved on the 2♦4♣3♥8♥Q♠ board.

Kular out in 29th for £3,200, Forsyth up to 465,000. -- NW

ukipt4_nottingham_day3_sarbjit_kular.jpg

Kular - coolered out of the tournament

12.30pm: Sarbjit Kular doubles; Bedi getting short
A much needed double up for Sarbjit Kular, who called from the big blind with J♠[10s] for his final 71,000 after Rob Sherwood had set him in from the small blind with J♣9♠. An entertaining 4♦9♣K♣7♥[10d] run out ensued and Kular is up to around 148,000 whilst Sherwood slips to 230,000.

Elsewhere, Rupinder Bedi raised from the cut-off and Joe Laming called from the big blind. On the 8♥3♦K♣ flop Bedi c-bet 13,000 and Laming called. The 2♠ turn slowed the action down, before Laming bet 25,000 on the 5♣ river, Bedi called but mucked when Laming showed K♠7♠. After that hand Bedi has slipped to 60,000.

Brendan Keenan is also out, so we're down to 29 players. -- NW

12.20pm: Brammer up a bit while Lukucs heads for the rail
At one end of the room Chris Brammer just took 17,000 from Ganesh Jayaraman after he called Brammer's pre-flop raise from the small blind. Jayaraman, in the big blind, then folded to Brammer's bet on the ten-high flop.

At the other end of the room it was the end of the road for Daniel Lukacs. He got his chips in with king-deuce but was called by Simon Deadman with ace-king. The remaining kings quickly made an appearance, the board running [k][k][t][3][4]. - SB

12.15pm: Early action
Iason Riziotis has doubled up through Daniel Lukacs, all-in with jacks against ace-queen, Riziotis up to around 160,000, Lukacs down to 50,000.

And the fun and games between some of the more exciting table draws has already started.

John Eames opened to 12,000 and called when Sergio Aido three-bet to 21,000. They saw a A♠8♠7♥ flop, Eames checked to Aido, he bet 24,000 and Eames called. The 8♦ fell on the turn and Eames check-folded to a bet of 62,000. Round 1 to Aido.

On the adjacent table Jamie Sykes opened to 12,000 from the cut-off and called when Ben Vinson made it 23,000 on the button. Vinson c-bet 21,000 on the A♣3♥9♠ flop and Sykes called. The 3♣ turn checked through and the 4♦ completed the board. Sykes bet 60,000, Vinson swiftly called, Sykes showed 8♠7♠ but Vinson had A♠4♣ to win the pot. -- NW

Jamie Sykes

We're down to 31 players in the UKIPT Nottingham 6-max Main Event, and will play down to a final six today.

While yesterday was a day of broad strokes, with players eliminated by the dozen, today will be more of an intricate dissection of the field, as one by one they will make way for the others. For the neutral (do they exist in poker?) it should be a fascinating day of poker.

Leading them into the day is Chris Brammer. As we wrote last night Brammer surged to the lead at the close, overtaking Tim Wong for the overall advantage, eliminating Sin Melin. He returns with 646,000 chips today, slightly ahead of Wong on 623,000.
