The 3 old school poker players (Real Deal, Yellow Flag & Candyman)saw this as the perfect opportunity to pick up some easy money - however either Candy taught the newbies too well, or more likely, Bushmills got the better of them in the later stages.
All started to plan with The Fro going all-in on a nothing hand within 15 minutes. Immediately taken out by the Gardners, he left the table a bitter man - 'The game was taking far too d**n long...I could have probably won but would have been several years older'.
EZ-G was next to go - Yellow Flag left him with 1 peanut after a big showdown. EZ-G did the decent thing - binned his nut and left the table - 'I'm not even going to eat the bloody thing'
Eastern Promise & 24/8 were soon to follow, both being taken out by the dark horse that was T-Cube. Eastern Promise would have made the Professor proud, having to be dragged from the table shouting about a conspiricy and demanding an enquiry. 24/8 was left 'shell shocked' - 'I can't believe I wasted all my nuts on nothing...'
Everything was going to plan with all but one of the novices ousted while the Gardners had built up a massive chip lead. At this point it all turned to s**t as over confidence led to some suicidal playing.
Candyman went all in on a pair of 4's and was taken out by the Real Deal - 'Gardnered again!'...
Next fell the Real Deal himself 'Can't believe I went all in on a pair of 5's - CRAZY...'
Meanwhile T-Cube consistently picked up 'nuts' and actually managed to 'psche' Yellowflag in the one-on-one. The Flag was soon all-in and left shaking his head in disgust as he was taken out on a straight - ' I didn't think he would have the 10'.
T-Cube left with the money - 'I picked up the 40 big-ones cause I played with a gangster stylee...time to retire I think'
