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.
It was great to see some more faces for the first game last night – welcome back to Adrian Meredith, Ben Rice and Keith Brooks. We also had two brand new entrants to welcome – Jasper Moore and James Scott-Mcarther – fabulous to see you all.
Ben did not waste too much time getting back into the swing of things after ducking out early in the first game, he recovered with a second in the second game. Adrian wasted no time either with a fifth followed by a fourth place.
Well done to all those who gained points this week. It is definitely proving that those extra points for consecutive top eight places are very useful. Six of the current top eight places are held by people that have played every game since OSC poker restarted after lockdown. All eight places are filled by people that have returned at least once since lockdown ended.
There is still some time to come back and get some points and league top eight places to earn a place in the grand season finale. Four more Thursdays which equals 8 more games.
We recently found out why Sara and Dean have not returned yet. They are presently being kept busy after the birth of their beautiful new baby boy, we also hear that Luke became a daddy for the second time, welcoming a bouncy baby girl , congratulations guys we wish you all the very best, what super news from lockdown days!
Thanks go out to all those that helped with the setting out and putting away of the poker kit. Also, thanks to Mrs Admin Sue although she had to be replaced for a short spell in the first game as she was still playing in the final table. Her temp replacement was not nearly as efficient and requires more training.
The next poker session is Thursday 21st October – please register by 7:20 for a prompt 7:30 start.
