We are a friendly bunch of players who meet every other Thursday to play Texas Hold ‘em Poker. Two tournaments are played with a £5 entry fee for each, both tournaments have points and cash prizes. There is no obligation to play in both tournaments you choose whether you want to play one or both. Points towards the league are granted for playing, being placed in the top 8, consecutive placings in the top 8 and the elusive Royal Flush! The points go towards your placing in the league and the final top 8 get to play in the grand finales one in summer and one in winter. At the grand finale the top 8 from the league are given chip stacks according to their position and get to play for cash prizes and a trophy. The losers as we affectionately call anyone who doesn’t make the top 8 (and there’s a lot of us) play a friendly side game in between watching the final and enjoying a drink and a buffet.
New players are always welcome, and we will do all possible to support beginners so don’t be shy… give it a try. Registration is at 7.20 for a 7.30 sharp start.
For further info contact Andy Pearson or Becci Grogan.
Ottershaw Social Club Poker League
This week at the tables we had a double winner! Well done to Jenny Gostage who won both games. Catherine is the only other player this season to do that so far.
Well done to all our placed players this week especially to Ray who still came to poker just three days after having a hip replacement operation. We’ll let him off putting tables away for a while.
There were a couple of changes this week – we did not have the big clock timer (did anyone notice or miss it?). What people did notice was the new table and posh new dealer buttons – we’re going up in the world and welcome any suggestions to continuously improve our poker nights.
The old final table will continue to be used for the grand final tournament, It just made more sense to keep it special for the final. The new table is lighter and easier to get out and put away after tournaments.
Speaking of getting out and putting away tables – thank you to all those helpers that do any job on the evening without whom we would not be able to supporthave these well supported poker nights.
Unfortunately, the find the joker raffle did not happen this week – we had no raffle tickets. Normal service should be resumed next time.
See you all in two weeks at the next tournament Thursday 18th April.
