We knew she would return to Manchester soon!

1: The proclamation from William Ewart Gladstone in Manchester’s Albert Square (well, at least in our heads!)… “The Lady is back! Get yourself down to Grosvenor Casino, Bury New Road for the Cerus Casino Academy Poker Freeroll tournament.” 2: Take your seats and shuffle up and deal. 3: CCA guest and poker novice Danielle enjoyed an early dalliance with Lady Luck.

4: With Lady Luck’s interest remaining strong, it was an easy decision for Danielle to keep reaching for chips. 5: A picture of no luck. I think CCA trainee Robin was checking his phone for another lady’s number! Lady Luck showed no interest when he needed a little helping hand. An early exit for the man from Paris. 6: A moment of meditation from Marco as he prepares to deal to the final table. 7: With or without the Lady, Carla ponders her next move

8: And then there were two. Alfonso prepares for his heads up clash with Cerus Casino Academy Manager Tony Mannechez with an old school poker stare down. 9: Alfonso turns his stare down up to full blast!!! #FearsomePokerPower. 10: The effects from Alfonso’s stare down are clearly visible, Tony looks drained. He looks like a beaten man!

11: Hand of the day. Alfonso flops a straight with a flush draw. A check from Alfonso sees an aggressive Tony put Alfonso all in. He snap calls. Ouch for Tony, he’s now looking for a little wink from Lady Luck. PAAM!!! She delivers the diamond he needs for the nut flush on the river. Oh, hold on a second, it’s a little mischievous play from the Lady. She delivers the Queen of diamonds! Alfonso takes the pot and a massive chip lead with a straight flush! 12: Surviving Alfonso’s staredown. Surviving Alfonso’s straight flush. Surviving a mischievous Lady Luck. Tony survived until the end. Last man seated. Congratulations, CCA Poker Freeoll champion! Alfonso claimed second prize and CCA guest and poker novice Danielle claimed third prize.

Another great poker Freeroll tournament from CCA. A big thank you to all who turned up (including Lady Luck!) and special thanks to Lee Harrison and his poker room staff at Grosvenor Bury New Rd. A great poker room: Cash tables to the left, tournament tables to the right, CCA freeroll in the middle and a private party playing behind us. Poker for all in Manchester.
