  1. Sorry to hear this. Get well soon. Helen x
  2. A few observations..... Point 1. I'm not an online player. Most of my modest successes have come from live tourneys, in fields of 100-300 players, with buy ins of a few hundred pounds. In these comps I believe I have a decent edge, As such, it is of no advantage to register late, so I always ensure I start as soon as possible. As far as I'm concerned, anyone entering the comp 1 or 2 hours later is playing sub-optimally, as they are missing out on the chance to win chips from the weaker players early on. So entering asap is optimal, and late reggers are playing this tourney sub-optimal. Point 2. The PL League has a very generous £150 added to it, which, for a $5, is enormous, especially as the field is so small. In fact, it's usually the only online tourney I play all week. It's a bit of fun, right? There's some banter, and we get to meet up once in a while for some more banter and a few beers. Now suppose I was a volume player and wanted to abuse the goodwill of the PuntersLounge team, here's what I'd do (not suggesting anyone is doing this). I'd register as late as possible and play shit or bust. If I get knocked out early I've only invested $5 and 5 minutes of my time, so no big deal. As I stated earlier, I am not against late registration per se, but we could be open to abuse at some point, so we do need to talk about it. Out of interest, is there an option on PokerStars for no late registration ? This option, plus an 8.10pm start would be my preference.
  3. I'm not actually against late reggers per se, but it does seem to go on for too long. The 10 min rule seems way too short to me. What time did registration actually close? Maybe we should introduce a rule where anyone who doesn't register by the first break, isn't eligible for points in the league?
  4. So QQ is the very bottom of your 3-bet shoving range? What would you do with 88 here? Fold?
  5. Only just seen this, and unlucky on the run out, but I think the call with AJo is mandatory against all but the very tightest of ranges.
  6. Nice one! I've had 4 online and 1 live. The live one was AA v AQ. AA won with a royal
  8. Pokerstars have cancelled late reg for the home games. If you want to play on Wednesday then please register early.
  9. Thanks Dan. I didn't mean to push the bounty onto you! We should probably get some sort of consensus before changing things around. Maybe if the bounty was picked at random once the registration has closed? Some years ago a local casino used to have a Mystery Bounty, so no-one knew who the bounty was. It could only be won by someone who had registered at the start and would roll over. I won it one week for 500 quid!
  10. Just to point out, it is a disadvantage to be a bounty, especially when the bounty is so big relative to the buy-in. It seems unfair that the same player should have the burden of being the target every week.
  11. First of all. if you win the tourney then you should win the bounty! Secondly, would it be better if the bounty changed each week? My suggestion would be to put it on the previous weeks winner.
  12. Instead of PL mug and pens this month, can we have a PL loo roll and hand sanitiser?
  13. My two penneth. If anyone would be out of pocket due to hotel cancellations, we should stick with the original date and forego our place in the APAT comp.
