  1. Yes, would be gutting to see the PL Poker community die off. Myself, I have hardly played a hand of online poker in 2015. I have 10 days off over the Xmas & will play some Tournaments. Had a quick look around the sites & there is loads of Xmas Tree giveaways, Tournies etc over the festive period. Will post some up later tonight. Keep the PL Poker Community Alive.
  2. Hello All. So looking forward to this. Got my tournament bets in this post & will post my match bets tomorrow. Djokovic, Wawrinka, S Williams & Sharapova ALL to win their Quarters 12/1 @ Ladbrokes 1.5pts win Decent bet to hopefully follow through to the Quarters. Djokovic & Williams should have no real problems. Wawrinka's main danger is Dimitrov who is not playing that well. Raonic has just come back from injury & anything past the 3rd Round will be a decent showing & prepare himself for the US Open. Sharapova danger in her quarter lies Safarova. a battle there but small stakes on this bet, will make it fun to follow. Jo Wilfred Tsonga to win Wimbledon Mens 80/1 @ Sporting Bet 0.5pts ew In Murrays Quarter of the draw but was really impressed by him at the French Open. Played two classic matches vs Nishikori & Wawrinka. He probably gave Stan his toughest game in the whole tournament & JWS was unlucky to lose that. Also considering last round in played a 5 setter vs Nishikori. If Tsonga can reproduce anything of his French Open form, he will give Murray an almighty scare in the R16, where they are due to meet. Agnieszka Radwanska to win Wimbledon Womens 33/1 @ Stan James 1pt ew With Serena Williams & Maria Sharapova in the Top half of the draw it should allow one of the big price players to at least make the Final. Kerber, Halep, Lisicki all deserve a mention but I'm going to have a couple of points each way on Radwanska. Kvitova is in her Quarter but I'm not convinced she is anywhere near the same form that she won this last year. AR just seems to be hitting form just at the right time. Good run at Eastbourne should set her up nicely for this. Yaroslava Shvedova to win 3rd Quarter Wimbledon Womens 80/1 @ PaddyPower 0.5pts win Fantastic price on Shevdova. Dangerous player on grass & should be 25's or 33's to win this Quarter. Couple of really good, confidence wins at WTA Hertogenbosch vs Bouchard & Erakovic. Lost a very close three setter vs Giorgi who went on to win it. Giorgi is only 20's to win this Quarter, so worth snapping up this overprice. Good Luck all :hope

  4. Re: French Open 2015 Last four Grand Slam meetings between these two have taken five sets to complete. Wawrinka is playing on one of his favourite surfaces(on clay) & you think he won't trouble Djokovic? Why?
  5. Re: French Open 2015 Andy Murray to beat Novak Djokovic French Open Semi Final @ 5.9 Betfair (5/10) Ok, Djokovic is playing unbelievably good at this moment in time but having Murray as a 5.9 underdog is ridiculous. How can the bookies have Nadal @3.2 who has been very average by his standards but Murray who is 15/0 on clay in 2015 & IMO should be a 2.8-3.4 underdog. I caught ND 1st set vs RN & from a dominate display made stupid errors which Murray can fully capitalise on. Should be a cracker. Murray 5pts win. :hope
  6. Re: French Open 2015 On that :ok Also Djokovic(-4.5 games) to beat Nadal 1.80 Bet365(5/10) Good luck all.
  7. Just randomly looking for a game to play on PaddyPower tonight & saw these in the lobby.

  8. Re: Australian Open 2015 I'm with Czech on this & the value in my opinion lies with Berdych. I agree with your argument if your comments were pre-Nadal match, but there's something changed with Berdych now...he believes he can win & beat the top guys. Nadal was beginning to improve & last round destroyed Anderson 3-0, for TB to go there & totally destroy Nadal in three sets was mighty impressive.Berdych whole body language & his mindset has changed & that has got to do with his new team & Vallverdu in particular. This 'Berdych' & the 'Berdych' at the 02 in London is a different animal.... He was scared before he hit a ball, frightened & didnt believe he could win vs the 'top guys'...he got semi-boooed when he walked off after Wawrinka defeat, it was embarrassing. Murray IMO does not look near the Andy Murray from a couple years ago(I think he will see the best of him at Wimbledon & Us Open) & believe at this moment in time, Berdych has the edge. Whatever happens it should be a cracker. My tip: Andy Murray vs Tomas Berdych: Murray over 9.5 aces @1.83 Ladbrokes(6/10) At worse 3 or 4 close sets.Last two rounds Murray has hit 13 & 10 aces. His last meeting(got beat 6-3 6-4)vs Berdych at Cincinnati Masters in 2013, on hard courts hit 10 aces in only two sets. I can see Murray getting over 9.5 aces tonight. 6pts win Good Luck all :hope
  9. Re: Australian Open 2015 Really like this bet Czech. Tempted by the -4.5 but best not to be too greedy. A few good bets tonight I like the look of... Raonic vs Becker under 35.5 games @1.83 sporting bet(7/10) Johnson vs Nishikori over 32.5 games @1.92 Pinnacle(5/10) Should be an straight sets win for Raonic tonight + Johnson can keep it tight vs KN + see the line being beat in close 3 or 4 sets. Good Luck all
  10. Re: William Hill World Championships > December 18th - January 4th What a fantastic way to finish the darts with this cracker of a final. What the hell was happening to Anderson with all the 'bounce outs'? That 180 bounce out was ridiculous. Mardell in commentary was blaming the board but Taylor only had one bounce-out compared to Anderson who must have had 10+ That final ranks up with the very best in terms of nail-biting excitement. Missus hates darts but she enjoyed it. Must have been good :D Well done all the tipsters on here, great job.
  11. Re: Punters Lounge Christmas / New Year Tourney 5th January 2015 Yes please Al. Cheers
  12. Re: Grand Slam of Darts - 8-16 Nov Absolutely loving this thread & all the tips from everyone. Well done Kev & Jazzer. Top stuff. :ok While I'm here I might as well put my two pence worth in. Michael van Gerwen v Kim Huybrechts- Huybrechts Highest match check out over 116.5 Skybet(5/10) I honestly think the bookies have this 5 points short here, with the way Huybrechts has been finishing in this tournament. In his impressive win over Norris he took out 118,144 & 155. One other leg he was one dart away from taking out 138.His wins on the earlier rounds vs Dekker took out 143 & vs Webster 126. Its one of them bets I can't ignore.5pts win
  13. Re: PokerPlayer Mag / Will Hill €1800 Freeroll Series - the next 4 Sundays starting 2 I agree with you, 1st point I hope PP never do this email out the passwords again. Has to password in mag+ buy in of $5 or $10. Saying all that I don't see much wrong with the scoring LusitaneaOQC got 90+ points for winning the buy in event with only 32 runners. To win a freeroll with 500 runners deserves its only merits so fair enough he got 50 points in that. Did he even play the next event?? More than likely be another 500+ in Sunday's freeroll :(
  14. Re: January 27 - February 2 Igor Sijsling(+2.5 sets) to beat Tomas Berdych @2.30 PaddyPower (6/10) Berdych had a superb run in the Aussie Open. TB is defiantely favourite today,home advahtage but at odds of 1.08 is crazy.IG is on his favourite surface & this will be a much closer game than the odds suggest. I can see IS at least nicking one set. As above going have a small punt on Sijsling to beat Berdych @11.00 Betfair(2/10) Good Luck all :hope
