About Us

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! Not so elusive this 2019 season as two dealt in two weeks! 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.

Match Report

Only 12 players again at the poker league night on 9th September for both games so it was another cosy intimate night.
Of those 12, only 8 were from the previous league evening. By my maths, that means there were 4 different faces.
We welcomed back Tess Martin and John Tremlett both of whom scored points for top three places. John 2nd in first game and Tess 3rd in second game. Well done guys!
We also had two brand new players Jake Watts and Ed Morriarty who both happen to be the Ottershaw Social Club’s new bar stewards. It was great to meet them, welcome them and see that they got themselves integrated into club life quite naturally. Let’s hope they make a success of their tenure and help to keep our great club going and see regular numbers coming back.
Of course, whilst poker numbers are low, it gives us that are returning excellent chances of accumulating points to get those coveted top 8 places for the grand finale. It may seem some way off yet but, those dark evenings are starting to creep in and time will pass quicker than you think. So, if those that were top eight before Covid want to maintain their places then consider returning to the tables sooner rather than later before we take your places just by getting the turning up points.
Well done to all those that got places and a big thanks as always to Mrs Admin Sue and those that helped set up and put away tables whom I know included our two new stewards.
Next league night is Thursday 23rd September. 7-7:20 registration for prompt start at 7:30. We hope to see as many as possible there.
