Eeek, anniversary Thursday, I'll have to raincheck.
Small world, mine also.
I'm going to be entering the scoop events in some way or another, prob take a punt in one of the 2 day NLHE events, but at the lowest entry point unless I do well at one of the satelites. Yourself?
Is there a game tonight by the way or not enough players?
Been trying the sats but they're full of idiots and you end up suffering from bad beats. One early hand a guy shoved with KK, I was after him so shoved with AA then a guy who had raised it up 3x BB earlier also shoved with T3o. Naturally the flop gave the guy with T3o trips, he busted us both out.
Not sure I'll buy in one of the events, am tempted but probably not wise.
I've set a came up for 8:30 tonight at $10. I've been busy all week and kept forgetting to set it up, hopefully there'll be enough people who can play tonight
Will register when I get back from work but I am definitely playing
I've been playing quite a few of the low stakes tournies recently (with 5/10/20k guaranteed prize pools). Tend to go for the knockout games so you get a bit of your money back as you progress. I agree, though, there is very little actual skill in the low stakes, you really have to wait for your premium hand and even then hope for the best when you [will undoubtedly] shove.
Higher the entry, the less aggressive / loose the players are and the better the game. If I don't see an all in on every round of betting in the low stakes, I'm v surprised.
Obviously, luck plays it's part, but you can at least have some control over the game, which is why I prob won't bother with satellites tbh.
Last night I got busted out of 4 consecutive tournies. Each time I was well ahead all the way through until the river busted me out - that was annoying!
So, then I entered a 25$ NL Turbo event with around 850+ runners. After a bit of luck (I was short stacked with A4 suited and shoved an under the gun raise, who had pocket queens, board came down 5-8-8-8-8, that guy must have been livid....) I ended up on the final table and cashed in 9th for 10x the entry, so that made up for the bad beats earlier.
Always nice when you run good eh!
Any more for tonight me and DamAmster signed up, I know ODP will be along too, hoping for more than 3 of us though, any others?
Sorry can't make tonight's game off out for a curry then onto the casino for a live game(only my 2nd time). I think by the time i get there i'll miss the main tourney so hopefully there will be some cash tables.
i will be there but will be cooking dinner again as i have the house viewings from 7-8...
Sorry guys I can't make it. Got a friend coming up from dahn sarf.
Will be back next week though...
Can't make tonight as just realised i can't afford the buy in and broke until monday.......trying to win enough on turbo tables to get to buy in......but not having a good run.....will definitely be in for next week if I don't make it.....can't believe how broke I am this month!
No worries lads, looks like just 4 of us this week. What day is best for everyone next week?
Also good luck hanksey, let us know how you get on! Where you playing?
any day is fine for me. not viewing on thursdays any more after this week...
Just had Iccz all in and dominated, AKo vs AQo.. You all know how this ended
So, who won then.......?
Should be up for next week! Thursday as good a night as any.
Iccz beat me heads up typical!
Few of us in the room tonight mentioned Tuesday as a possibility. Thoughts?
Played at Grosvenor G Didsbury £20 + rebuy tourney only 20 runners but came 3rd picked up £150 so a good night in all had a good experience.
Won't be able to make next week as i work nights, probably be a couple of weeks before i can make it depending on what nights you guys pick as i work a rolling roster.
Was also talking to Iccz the other day about a trip over to Dusk Till Dawn in Nottingham one Friday night for one of their £20 buy in tourneys, they normally get over 150 entrants and its really professionally organised. Then there are cash games ranging from 0.50/1 limit up to far past my limit
I could be up for that sometime.
Lol I misread that as you're working on a roller coaster...I blame Iccz's photo earlier.
Yes I'm hungover...
Was a good game, hopefully we can get more next week.
Owen has a lot going on every Thursday so would rather not do that, or perhaps a 9:00 start would work better for him...
I'm good for any day really so I'm happy to go with the majority.
Most nights okay.....not Friday......
I couldnt make it last night because i fell asleep
I generally ok to play most nights as long as it isnt a Friday or Saturday.
Wish i could go up to Dusk til Dawn, but being London based means its a bit of a mission for a £20 tourney . May be the Empire, Vic, Fox, or The International one day
Small world, that's where I've played recently...
How many peeps are up for a game tomorrow at 8:30?
Also the EPT final table kicks off in about 45 minutes on PokerStars.tv
( Live Action on PokerStars.tv )
I use poker stars IPad app- don't really like using desktop as I'm always getting distracted and the iPad is portable.
Can I join your games using the app?
Yep, the app just links in to standard games - there are no specific mobile games that I know of.
Will PM you the details
