Another solid start in the London region for Leg 1 of Season 2 @ G Casino Luton. 76 entreis and 4 re-entries, making a total of 80 entries have got this Leg off to a great start.

No details available from Flight 1 on the number of players who made it through and their respective chip counts at the moment but should be posted around 11-30am this morning.

This is the place to be if you are in the area with Flights 2 and 3 starting today at 12 noon and 7-45pm respectively. we could easily be looking at another fantastic Prize Pool here in Luton.

Our intrpid reporter Michelle Bennett will be on hand later this morning to bring us up to date with proceedings from last night and will then take us through today's developments as Flights 2 and 3 take place. She will then be back tomorrow for the Final day and keep us informed throughout the day until the Champion is crowned sometime late Sunday Night.

The very best of luck to all those taking part.

The card room here in Luton is big, very big. They can easily accommodate 20 tables, but there is still lots of room to move around, no-one is crammed in. It's quite light and very airy. A very comfortable place to play poker.

Table 2 and we have a 3-way pot between Ian Duggins who raises to 400 pre-flop, Jason Penman and Martyn Tawn both call.

Flop is J-2-2

Martyn checks from the SB
Ian bets 800
Jason folds from the button
Martyn raises to 1600 and Ian calls

Turn Q

Check, check

River 6

Martyn bets 3k and Ian reluctantly calls. Martyn has a BB Special 4-2 and Ian mucks.

Several hands later and Ian is involved in another hand and calls a raise of 425 from Martyn and Andrew Taylor and Navin Thadani in the blinds also call.

Flop 8-4-2

Andrew leads out for 900
Ian raises to 2500 after Navin folds and Andrew calls.

Turn 7

Andrew Checks
Ian goes all-in for 5700 and Andrew calls.

Ian shows 4-2, Andrew shows 8-10 for top pair.

River 4

4-2 wins again on table 2 and Ian doubles up!

On table 5, Calogero Morreale and Robert Quinn get it all in on the flop of J-J-Q

Calogero has K-J for trips...

but Robert holds Q-J and has flopped a full house!

Calogero fails to hit a King and is eliminated.
