Mad Dog Support

Michael Watson AKA Mad Dog
Michael Watson AKA Mad Dog

Dan Smith and Scott Seiver are party of the small but vocal rail supporting Michael Watson.

They have the nickname "Mad Dog" for their pal and are trying their best to get get Paul Neaves (The TD and announcer) to call Watson by his nickname. He resisted for a while but has softened and dropped the odd one in there to make the crown go wild!

Eleventh Hand Yields a Flop, And a Turn

YorkshirePud • Level 6: 8,000-16,000, 2,000 ante

The two players seem content with passing the blinds to each other and we went 10 hands without seeing a flop. However, when Tristan Wade raised to 32,000 on the 11th hand, Michael Watson called and we saw a rare flop.

Flop: {10-Diamonds}{a-Diamonds}{q-Hearts} - Watson checked and Wade checked behind.

Turn: {10-Spades} - Watson bet 40,000 when the board paired and Wade wasted little time in folding.

A Three-Bet!

MarcC • Level 6: 8,000-16,000, 2,000 ante

This heads-up battle has been relatively passive so far, but things might be warming up as we just had the first three-bet.

Tristan Wade raised to 32,000 from the button and Michael Wade three-bet to 84,000. Wade thought about doing something, but he folded.

Another For Wade

YorkshirePud • Level 6: 8,000-16,000, 2,000 ante

Tristan Wade raised to 32,000 on the button and Michael Watson made the call. A flop reading {4-Clubs}{5-Diamonds}{J-Clubs} was checked by Watson, but Wade continued with a bet of 27,000. Watson's eyes only moved from the flop to count enough chips to make the call.

The turn was the {Q-Diamonds} and again Watson checked. Wade bet 44,000 and Watson made the call after around 45 seconds of waiting. The river was another queen, the {Q-Hearts}. Watson checked and Wade checked behind immediately.

Wade{A-Diamonds}{K-Diamonds}
Watson{A-}{9-}

Second Blood to Wade

MarcC • Level 6: 8,000-16,000, 2,000 ante

Tristan Wade raised to 32,000 from the button and Michael Watson defended to see a {8-Hearts}{5-Diamonds}{q-Clubs} flop.

Both players checked to the {q-Diamonds} turn where Watson led out for 42,000, only to face a raise up to 88,000 from Wade. The Canadian thought for a while before he elected to call. The river came {9-Diamonds} and that killed any more action as both players went back to checking.

Watson tabled {k-Diamonds}{8-Spades} but lost out to Wade's {7-Hearts}{9-Spades}.

First Blood To Watson

YorkshirePud • Level 6: 8,000-16,000, 2,000 ante

Michael Watson has won the first pot of heads up play.

On a flop reading {8-Clubs}{2-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds} Tristan Wade checked, Watson bet 40,000 and Wade called. The turn was the {7-Hearts} and Wade checked again. Watson did not slow down though, instead he increased his bet to 100,000, which was enough to fold out Wade.

Richard Toth Eliminated in 3rd Place (€84,016)

[user196772] • Level 6: 8,000-16,000, 2,000 ante
Richard Toth
Richard Toth

Richard Toth was the short stack and had moved in twice with no callers. The third time he pushed, from the button for 250,000, Michael Watson snap-called from the big blind.

Toth: {q-Clubs}{10-Hearts}
Watson: {a-Clubs}{k-Diamonds}

The flop came out {q-Hearts}{j-Diamonds}{6-Spades} prompting Toth's friends to yelp with delight.

Scott Seiver was also on the rail (swigging from a bottle of red wine) and shouted for a ten.

The turn came a ten and some of Toth's support were still cheering, not realising that Watson had made Broadway. They soon realised their friend's fate as he shook hands and left the area after the river fell {6-Clubs}.
