Strike One

Franke kaputt

A cackling belly laugh rising in volume as it approached the media table alerted us to the demise of Franke von Zweigbergk from the Main Event. A classic, unavoidable hand - T7 v AA. Whether he chooses to buy back in to 1d or takes his beer and his business directly Day 1e (currently scheduled to start at 9pm) remains to be seen.

UPDATE: the words "second bullet" were heard just outside at the cash desk, and he's right back in there already.

By the way, please note in the foreground a laptop displaying the software for tomorrow's Gambling Cabin Sportsbook Tourney. Events are taking place tomorrow from 1pm at two buy-in levels, and we strongly urge you to join in for a bit of light relief from the relentless pokers.
