Tony comes riding into the dimly lit Dusk Till Dawn Casino in Nottingham UK, for the Party Poker Big Game V that is being live streamed on PokerNews Interactive. He’s got a basket on his bike – for the poker dolls to ride in.
Tony takes a ride around the table and sizes up the players, letting them know that the bike is waiting for their exit. He lets one of the dolls get a look at the players as it stands on the rail, and then does a double back flip before Tony puts the doll back in the basket. Tony stands by the table and talks to the players, sitting down for just a moment to show the doll the game.
Laura Cornelius is waiting for Tony once he parks the bike.
Tony says he was asleep and plugging away in bed in a dream. He says he will slip into the game and do his best. Laura asks if he’s been watching any of the live stream of the game and he says yes, it has been a bit of motivation. Laura says they’re about to lose someone in the game and asks if Tony knows whose seat he will take. Tony says he thinks it’s Neil Channing. He’s going to get biked, he’s the most sort of popular hated player in the UK. Tony says he’s the most hated. Tony says that’s not a bad title, he’s won something, and Channing’s been working hard to win.
Tony introduces his friends, the dolls that he brought in the basket on his bike, the first one is Devilfish – Tony brings up the doll that Bruno got when he got evicted because he’s also one of the most hated players – the next doll Tony shows is Phil Hellmuth and Tony turns the doll upside down and cracks jokes about Hellmuth’s private jet; the third doll is Daniel, Laura likes the beard.
Tony says there’s a bulldog in the house but they’re not allowing German Shepherds because they don’t want a dog fight. He says there’s a lot of controversy in America and he’s staying away from that. He says the dog is going to eat Hellmuth and Devilfish.
And Tony’s off…to take the dolls to the table.
