  1. Re: P.Lounge Poker Tournament II I agree with eqinoxx, maybe it would lead to a lot of 'sitting out' hands. Its paradise that stipulate the registration time not us and dont worry about the 20 player thing. You can have as many players as you want but technically you are supposed to have a MINIMUM of 20 players for the game to start, but i think in reality its 10 players before the game can go ahead, otherwise its cancelled immediately. Last time the prize pool didnt show up until the 10th player registered. I suppose they need to get so much 'cut' to make it worthwhile. I'll be there after the Arsenal game. Hope we have a good turnout. Cheers BH

  2. Re: P.Lounge Poker Tournament II Just looking at the table above, on the submit form the buy-in is a minimum of $10, but there seems to be some flexibility in this with some lower buy-ins. The one that interests me is the 'free' one. No not because i'm a tight old git, but i'm thinking if we could possibly get a sponsor to put up some prize money and have 'free' entry tournament, advertise it all over the board, we could get a bumper turnout. The chances are the new people may play again in one of our regular ones. Just thought about the $10 minimum to open account at Paradise, maybe that would put them off. The thought was there though! I think i'll email them anyway to find out how you do it. Cheers BH

  4. Re: Tournament Advice please Hi LadyLuck, welcome on board, in answer to your question which is a very familiar one and one many of us have sought a solution at some time, is simply by playing more and more and watching and learning from your mistakes and noticing why the players against you are more successful? Its quite common in a STT that most players play as you do, begin playing very tight in hope to get to the 'cash' stages, unfortunately the usual scenario is that after getting there you have few chips in which to play aggressively to actually go on and win the thing. The solution is obviously to be more aggressive earlier on, you need to play more marginal hands when there is 5/6 players left and try to turn the situation on its head so you become the aggressor, especially against the small chips. Yes sure your taking a chance of going out earlier and not reaching the prize money but you dont win any tournaments without risk! I had problems when playing 'heads up', i found it very difficult for a while and was getting overrun by aggressive play. You have to realise a marginal hand with 9 opponents becomes a very good hand with only one opponent, and with the blinds so big, calling is usually a poor play. Its only experience that teaches you this. Jezz wrote a superb reply to Northern Red about something similar in Multi's, take a look at that. I'm no expert and i'm sure someone will add to this thread, but glad you made it to our forum and please keep posting. You may even like to enter our tournament. Cheers BH.

  5. Re: Favourite Poker Site I like Billy Hills also, a bit biased maybe, but i do like the feel of the place. Also Betfair i enjoy and obviously getting used to Paradise. Only one place i cant get on with is Laddies, cant put my finger on it but prefer not to play there.

  6. Re: Next PL Poker Tournament? Just like to say for some of those that missed the previous threads, the reason we chose ParadisePoker is that the leading sites like Ladbrokes, Hills, Betfair, Bet365 etc do not have a facility for private tables. Have a look its easy to set up and most found the gameplay to be adequate if not quite good. (accept Visa, Mastercard, Switch, Solo etc..) Some really good replies here lads, my first thoughts are these; Maybe we should try a Sunday this time for those that coudnt do Saturday last time out, and most people are in favour of that day anyway. Mark, is thre no chance od making Sunday PM? Proposal: Sunday 23rd January, 7pm $10 buy-in ParadisePoker. This way its a two-week gap and then next time we could raise the stakes if enough are interested. Looks like 10 are definitely needed for the game to start. I'll start another thread if this is acceptable nearer the time, also give us chance to spread the word further.

  7. Re: BillyHills & CrazySuzy (& anyone else in Leicester) GETT1N, We have been to the Gala to have a look round and was impressed, while there we asked about Texas tournaments and they said the room wasnt ready yet. A friend of mine went last night and asked again and was told it will be in about a months time. Buy-in's from only a fiver, 4 rebuys first 90mins. There will obviously be higher stakes also, but i'm an internet player only, apart from the casual game with friends, so 'live' tourneys are something i want to try but i'll keep to low stakes for now. We will deffo be pleased to get together sometime, be nice if a few others could make the long trip to Leicester. Jezz how much by taxi from Aberdeen? Cheers GETT1N, look forward to it.

  8. Well i think we got away with the Tournament dont you? I think we should keep discussions open about another tournament while everyone has it fresh in their minds and are enthusiastic. I'd hate to think of it just fading away and being a one-off. In the threads leading up to Sat, we had various suggestions and preferences for the best time to play. Some said a weekday would be best and some said Sunday's. I changed the day to Saturday for this one because one or two said Sunday was out. So we need some feedback from everyone on whats the best way to go. I am most flexible-apparently? so i'll go with the flow. Also would like feedback on what people thought of Paradise, the software, any probs we had, i know Suzy had terrible connection problems for instance. The buy-in seemed to work, i thought $77 was ok for our first shot. Any thoughts on this? I know some will want to increase it but be mindful that by doing this too much we may deter new players. Maybe we could have a 'big' tourney every now and then? Anyway we had 17 players and apparently over 40 watching - who were they?? Just want to make one thing clear, just because i set the first one up it doesnt mean i make the decisions, i will gladly help set the next one up but the decisions are for all of us to make. Cheers BH

  9. Re: Golf -Mercedes Championship Think we are doing ok between us, weather supposed to be a bit more testing today.

Thanks to all who took part and 'watched'. Hopefully this will only be the start and we can attract more players as time goes on. I think its typical of the Punters Lounge that this was such a success, the people we have on board are just terrific. I hope the Poker Forum continues to help us all improve our game. Thanks BH.
  11. Re: Punters Lounge Poker Tournament (2) I was wondering about ordering drinks too!! I saw some had a fag on in the ashtrays, that'll be me on Saturday. Like the stats screen as well, it saves direct to excel so you can keep records and then automotically adds to it the next time you play. Sussed out how to screen capture so will hopefully be able to publish the official result. Cheers Tipstar for your spirit and support.

  12. Re: Golf -Mercedes Championship I take Ernie Els,(11/2) has all the credentials, long hitter, always plays well early in year, likes the course, can play the wind (although forecast quite good), and usually plays well when up against Tiger and Vijay. Had a bit of 22/1 E/W Mike Wier to be top International player, another player who is good early season, has played well the 4 times he's played here. Nice to have the Golf back lads.
