Yesterday noonish I made my way down to the depths of Bedfordshire. Traffic was alright but I got confused due to the lack of signposting and the AA's directions so I missed a turn, came onto the A5 the wrong way and then missed another turn I remembered too late from last year so I came in through Leighton Buzzard down centre which was quite busy but miraculously I managed to find the right road and got to the school in plenty of time.

The Boss of Bosses mobster freeform was good fun and my governor actually made it alive through the end, which couldn't be said of most of the mob. Result. :o)

After a break, loads more people arriving and setting up the room, the poker tournament, run by Graham A and [livejournal.com profile] mr_malk went ahead.
Suprisingly, I did really well in the beginning, moving tables twice and waving good-bye to various people who had utterly outplayed me last year. I guess it was a combination of actually having a good few hands, and much luck but I need to be more confident and aggressive on the one hand and fold more often on the other.
Staying in as long as I did also meant I got into the "Last Chance Saloon" (the losers' table) quite late which in turn meant I was horribly short-stacked and didn't get the hands I needed to get in properly.

The final table was very strong (as to be expected) and consisted of both very experienced players and absolute "virgins". The last hand was awesome when [livejournal.com profile] chomper99 went all-in with 6 and 2 off-suit which turned into a Full House which beat Andy's Flush. o_O
Due to time-restraints, the winner was determined by number of chips which meant (can't remember her name) came out on top, beating both [livejournal.com profile] chomper99 and Andy. Very cool.
I'm sure [livejournal.com profile] mr_malk will be posting the final numbers of money raised but IIRC, it was around the 1500 quid mark.
Photos tomorrow.

Hi people,

Come on, even if you if you've never played, it'll be a laugh.
