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.
Well, so sorry it is late yet again – I will try harder next season.
It has been another magnificent season of poker with 44 individual players taking part at some point in the season. Only 14 of those individuals made any profit from playing the tables – Lee was top getting £388.00 for his efforts.
Richard Grace for his efforts despite winning £95.00 over the year still made a loss but only £5. Myself (Andy) and Mike Warner are the biggest money losers. Neither of us manages to pick up a cash prize all season and turned up for every game so thus we lost £110 each. Of course no match report is quite right if I don’t mention Adrian – he came 24th in the league and lost £45.00 over the course of the season.
Thank you to all who took part in any or all of the poker nights. It has been great fun once again and we do look forward to seeing you at the Grand Finale on Thursday 14th December 19.20. There will be a free hot food buffet so make sure you come hungry. There will be sweep stakes and side tables for those not playing on the final table. The pool table should be accessible for those wishing to play pool when knocked out of poker (Put my name down Mike!) There will be the find the joker competition and of course there will also be a fancy dress theme. This time as there is not a lot of notice it will be trashy Christmas. Come as trashy as you can, grab a bit of tinsel off the tree and wear it.
A massive thank you as always goes to everyone that has helped in any way throughout this season thank you, thank you, thank you…….. It would not work without the efforts so please could we all keep going next season too.
