Carnage. Sheer carnage.

Pascal "PP The Bandit" Perrault, the new chip leader

PP the Bandit summed it up in one sentence:

"You need luck sometimes," he said.

Earlier in the day, I'd dubbed him the All-In Man. It was a moved he used more than folding, often to much success. Just moments ago, it happened again, and it resulted in such bloody carnage that it's elevated him to chip-leader.

Perrault raised pre-flop to 7000 (a little more than 3x the BB). Justin Bonomo made it 17,000 to go. Perrault pushed all-in and Bonomo called. The Bandit showed KQo offsuit. Bonomo showed pocket kings.

Domination, right.

Mais, no

A queen on the flop and queen on the turn sent Bonomo home. I can't describe the look on his face.

Seconds later, Hendon Mobster Ross Boatman got all in on a king-high flop with his pair of aces. After some thought, his opponent called and turned another king.

Around here, when you need drink, all you have to do is shout "Service!"

Suddenly, there are a lot more shouts like that.

I wonder if the waiters can clean up the blood.
