    And lets not forget 'Devilfish'

    The lovely Marina :D
    There's some right wierdo's, but they know what they're doing I suppose. There's one episode where the players are all celebrities, like Stephen Fry, who's supprisingly good.

    Weekly Texas No-Limit game here too
    £20 (1 re-buy allowed)
    Usually 6-8 players, (2nd prizes often negotiable) :cool:

    BTW, I see Devilfish took $589,990 in a tournament recently. How the hell does he do it :confused:

    Kahuna's of steel. I heard he's been banned in a fair few English casinos for winning so often.

    I'd love to set up a weekly game but no-one know's how to play round here, and abhor the idea of betting their own money:rolleyes:

    On One of the Discovery channels the other night they showed a poker tournament on a cruise ship which lasted 1 week.
    A mix of amateur & professional players.
    Outrageously:D a woman player won, beating off the great Phil Helmuth Jnr. to win the cool $1m

    Some of their bets were well over $100 thousand
    :eek:
