Doorstop Boasting

Now that they've shown the programme I'm allowed to show you this.

I haven't decided what I'm going to spend my winnings on yet.





Maybe a carpet.

Congratulations, Dave. I stayed up to watch it. I was thrilled to see you win (though I thought some of the other competitors were very entertaining too). It looked unlikely for you there for a while, but you pulled through.

Now I need to really improve my own game if I'm to survive my weekend in Las Vegas in a few weeks. Wish me luck.

Dave Gorman said...

Good luck.

Mr Tea Belly said...

I was cheering along for Dave and getting quite exited about it all. Rather sad really!

mike said...

I didn't get a chance to watch it. How much did you win?

SMARTBuddy said...

Go Dave! I watched, and it was good

Spaceman said...

Thats a rather fancy doorstop isn't it?

MrHunnybun said...

Nice work Mr Gorman, I was sweating for you on your first "all in"

So, you were playing for real money-even better!

Congratulations

Congratulations Dave!

you could do quite a lot with £5k on full tilt.

Emma said...

Well done Dave. Ms Coren sounded very impressed with you... if you know what I mean...

The prize money was pretty good... you should do something really frivoulous with it. Buy some art or... have a sculpture comissioned of you playing poker... or stay in a penthouse suite at Claridge's for the night (the website says they have an in house florist for private arrangements).

Congrats on the win. If you decide against a carpet, there's always a shelf.

Simmo said...

Congrats Dave! Missed the show though - do you know if it will be repeated? Or if I could watch it online etc? Or maybe you could come and sit at a table in my house and re-anact the whole thing?

Let me know.

Nice one, Dave! You must've loving it when those 10s came up on the last flop. =D

Keith said...

I expect you could find it on 4OD, you can watch any Channel 4 programme from the last week streamed live for free.

Can't say I can really understand how poker works as a spectator sport.

Well done on the win though Dave, was it luck or skill?

Jen said...

Congratulations!

Would I detect the fact you have been polishing your erm doorstop?

Jayne Ferst said...

Well done! The award also looks like it would make a great giant starter tiddly-wink, should you ever need one.

Simmo said...

Thanks for that Keith, however I've just read the reply now after downloading at watching it last night via a popular UK torrent website ;-)

Didn't think about 4OD!

I can't confess to know anything about Poker, I don't play and apart from knowing the odd word or two, it was all nonsence to me. However I enjoyed watching it, and watching you win, especially with your celebration at the end..."IM RICH, IM RICH" hehe.

P.S. Dave if you do get a carpet, make it a nice one.

Simmo,

Can i be cheeky and ask which torrent site you used. I cant find it anywhere....

Cheers
Sal

Simmo said...

I don't know Sal...can yoU be cheeKy?!

...oh dear...I'm interNet flirting...

Anyway, I can't really tell you which site it was. I can't tell you it was from UKNova.com. Definately not UKNova.com.

;-)

Congrats Dave!

Though I think the best thing about the trophy is that it says 2008 and not, chronologically correctly, 2007.
