  1. Re: Punters Lounge Poker Tournament (2) Doesnt look like were going to get the required 20 players, just hope they let us play with however many turn up. Jezza Suzy Jay Topnotch Tufty FC Norfolk CJ MFC Mark Alien Laidback Wayne Doddsy Northern Red Anyone else??? I'll try and drum up some others.

  2. Re: Punters Lounge Poker Tournament (2) Cheers Oskar, well done on your recent gains! I was a born pessamist so we'll wait and see, i'd love to run a regular PL tourney and the times, dates, success or failure is down to us. I'm sure you will hear all about it!! Maybe next time.

  3. Re: Punters Lounge Poker Tournament (2) Tufty thats ok till saturday, i think it said 9% for the house so it will be $10 + 90cents entry fee? First 3 places get paid, the more enter the more we play for. Thanks mate. Anyone having difficulty in finding the tournament? I couldnt see the private tab for ages, still i am old and knackered! For anyone else; Select 'Tournament' tab from lobby. On new screen look towards bottom and among the multi-coloured screen the tabs show Multi,STT and so on, Private tab is on that row. Select that and another screen comes up with all the private ones on there. Look for the 8th of Jan and we are there. Click P.Lounge and the details come up, after 6pm it will say 'register' and then it will ask for password. 'punters' (lower case) then i think it will ask for entry fee. I'm guessing all this, but best to be aware of what may happen. Should be interesting watching the prize pool go up each time one of us enters. Im quite worried that i will end up heads up with Suzy coz no-one else turns up! Norfolk, hope your not as hot at poker as you are at winding people up!!

  4. Re: Punters Lounge Poker Tournament (2) Your welcome Northern Red, solo is accepted, ive just checked. Try to open your account before saturday if possible coz if i remember rightly they have to send you an email to activate it, dont want people doing it the last minute. Should offer you a bonus code, but if not put in 'first25' for a 25% bonus. You get your bonus after playing for so long but its free i suppose! We can register for the tourney after 6pm on the night. See you there.

  5. Re: Punters Lounge Poker Tournament (2) Thanks to CJ and Tufty for joining our 'adventure' Right guys heres the latest news; Recieved e-mail below from The Poker site and the tables are all set up and ready to go. Just had a look and it seems registration opens 2hrs before tournament begins. Also had a look at other private tournaments and some have been played with less than the 20 player requirement, so it looks like we'll be ok but obviously we want as many as possible to make it more enjoyable. Tournament is called : P.Lounge (can only use 9 letters so couldnt call it Punters Lounge) Password is : punters (this will be needed to register for tourney) from 6pm Saturday. I just hope we get a good turn out, any probs put it on here. E-Mail recieved; _________________________________________________________ Hello Graham, Thanks for your interest in our Private tourney feature. Your event is now set up under the Private tab within Tournaments. Please note your password for P.Lounge is punters. Enjoy! Please let us know if we can be of any further assistance. Best Regards, Lara, Paradise Poker Support ______________________________________________________________ Looks good seeing it on the site!! Cheers BH

  6. Thought i'd start a new thread as the other one is a bit confusing now. Venue : Paradise Poker Date : Sat Jan 8th - 8pm Game : No Limit Taxas Hold'em Buy-In: $10 Info on Starting Chips, Blinds, Password will follow. Upto date we have 10 Definites, 4 Maybe's and 2 No Shows. We need 20 players minimum to be able to play at Paradise, so anyone else would be more than welcome. Players in so far; MFC Mark BillyHills Jezza AlienSyndm Norfolk Laidbackbloke Topnotchbloke (no relation?) Waynemcke Doddsy Jay Maybe's to be confirmed; Dave George StaffordRangersFan Northern Red Cant make it; Oskar MrMuzeman We have quite a few active posters on here so come on put your name down, its only a game, CJ, Johnny, KSportz, Zebedee, Chala, etc. Thanks

  7. Re: Online Poker Tournaments, where do you go? I plat at William Hill's and Betfair mainly, i like the fact that you can play in sterling, some sites only deal in dollars, nothing major but just a little extra i prefer. Also like the feel of the software at those places and its not that difficult to get in the prize money on the STT's if your paitent. Worked for Hills for 10yrs so i may be biased!!

  8. Re: Punter's Lounge Poker Tournament Dont worry mate, quite a few of us are just first year apprentices, with the odd shark or two, be a good laugh and who knows may become a regular thing, its up to us really. Definites BillyHills Jezza MFC Mark (thanks for your help) Aliensyndm Laidbackbloke Got a couple of mates who are going to join PL in the new year anyaway now we have a poker section, so i'll get them to register with PL asap. I'm sure they will play.

  9. Re: Punter's Lounge Poker Tournament I make it 12 people have expressed an interest so far, we now need confirmations for Saturday Jan 8th, 8pm. BillyHills Norfolk Jezza MFC Mark Dave Topnotchbloke Oskar George Jay MrMuzeman Laidbackbloke StaffordRangersFan So we need another 8 at least, thats if the above will play? If you can definitely play in the following please state below. If you deffo cant then let us know also. Texas Hold'em No Limit Jan 8th at 8pm Be able to open account at Paradise Poker $10 entry fee (minimum on that site) Switch/Maestro/Visa/Mastercard all accepted. Obviously the more the merrier so anyone you know on the lounge that would give it a blast then recruit them now. Lets get this on lads! Cheers BH

  10. Re: Punter's Lounge Poker Tournament I'll keep searching Jezza, but so far cant find any sites that will entertain us that use switch! Laddies told me they dont do private tourneys? So did VChandler. Some other sites either only allow players that have been members for ages or only do Single Tables which isnt what i had in mind. Other problem with pokertropolis is that its $20 minimum deposit. I'll keep trying.

  11. Re: Punter's Lounge Poker Tournament Ok lads, Saturday 8th January looks like a good starting point and we have to make some definite decisions sooner or later. Not bothered about the stakes but origionally thoughts to keep it low to create enough interest. I'm thinking bragging rights after the event would be reward enough for the first one! Let me know, majority rules. So Anybody interested in: Texas Hold'em No Limit Tournament Venue; Pokertropolis.com Date; Saturday January 8th 2005 8pm Buy-In; $5 or $10 plus 10% to site. (any thoughts on this, not sure what people usually play for but dont want to get too serious, rather have lot of players of all levels to encourage beginners to come and play) Chips; 1500 to start, $10/$20 opening blinds (any thoughts? want to make game last long enough) Try to get Usernames that will identify you to Punters Lounge. When registering you will get a 5 digit Ac Number. I may need this to enter people in to the event. Only problem i see is that they only accept Visa/mastercard Credit cards plus some other stuff i'm not sure about which is probrably for US citizens.?? Let me know if your definitely agreeable to the above and are able to enter. In the meantime i'll e-mail them and ask a few questions like when do we deposit money, how close to the date can we add names etc... Tried to look around for UK sites that does private tables and accept Switch. Heard that VC does private rooms but cant find any info on the site. Laddies dont. Hills dont. Bet365 dont. Cheers BH

  12. Ok guys, after my initial post about Private Poker Tables, there seems to be enough of us interested in having a go at this thing. Never done it before but i'm willing to try and set it all up unless someone else has the know how, experience, time etc... Downloaded the Software from http://www.pokertropolis.com/privatetable.asp and had a look at the tables, looks ok to me. Read the rules about setting up Tourney and it appears fairly straight forward. Can only see a couple of problems; (1) All players will obviously have to register with the site, (Use Punters Lounge usernames) which means downloading the software, some may not want 'another' poker set-up, so if there is an alternative then let us know. (ie; if Laddies do one and most of us are already members at that site then it would make sense to do it there, although this one seems ok, as i said earlier) (2)We will have to pay an entry fee, of which the site takes a cut for the pleasure of having us (usual rake%) Obviously this will mean putting cash into account so access to payment method will be needed. (Only 10cent minimum) If after these conditions are met then we have to decide a few things; (1) Date of Tournament Obviously we need to select a day and time that suits the majority, may be impossible to suit everyone. Something like Sunday at 7pm for example. (2)Type of Tournament I imagine this will be NO LIMIT Texas Hold-Em. (3)The amount of Starting Chips This will be fixed at 1500, we need to choose the starting Blinds. Eg; $10/$20 (The site deals in Dollars) (4)The Entry Fee This will determine the Prize Money, i think it will be split in the usual way but by request we can do what we like. A couple of ways of looking at this but for the first one we may want to keep it at $5 or something and see how we go. The extra for the Site would be 10% ie; 50cents. I thought we could have a go early in the New Year when everybody is back online after the Hols. From the posts already recieved the players interested so far were; BillyHills Jay Oskar StaffordRangersFan Topnotchbloke Jezza Dave George MFC MARK NorfolkEnchance There is no limit to the amount of players, the tables will be automatically provided to suit the entrants. Max 10 per table. Anyway, its all trial and error just now so if anyone 'really' interested in playing put their thoughts up and we can take it from there. My suggestion: Sunday 7pm in january No Limit Texas Hold-Em Blinds= $10/$20 Entry Fee= $5 I am fairly flexible, but Mondays/Fridays are a bit of a problem. Cheers BH

  13. Re: Sign Up Quick! I think someone played for you Dave, coz you finished in the mid 700's. My mate didnt turn up and still finished 380th before his blinds ran out?? I made it til just after the break 452nd. No excuses, just played crap really.

  14. Re: Gala Casino- Leicester No, its very different to both Annabels and Stanleys, twice the size and aimed at the occaisonal punter rather than the 'proper gambler' i suppose. Its Gala's best effort so far by all accounts but i suppose it comes with a price. Restaurant not cheap, bar meals are about £3. A lot of people are put off by the atmosphere in the other two older casinos, small, smokey, not many tables etc.. I agree the food was cheap. Stanleys do a Carvery for a fiver, never got any free sarnies at annabels though. (no poker tourneys either). As i say i think it will be aimed at large groups of people looking for a night out coz they are catering for parties and the like. I'll keep you informed of any developments.

  15. Visited the new Casino in Leicester the other night, very impressive. Asked about Poker Tournaments and was told the card room is still to be finished and in the new year there will be weekly Texas tournaments. Usually £20/£30 to enter, 10 tables, re-buys first 90mins. At Nottingham Gala the other night there was a £200 buy-in tournament for 77 players, so Leicester could hold some tasty ones as well. Another interesting point is that you can hire the tables, £2 per hour with no dealer £10 per hour with dealer We could hold our own Tournament even?

  16. Re: Laddies Rebellion! Funny that, Been playing at Hill's last couple of nights and the amount of flush's coming out are unbelievable, at one time it seemed that anything lower was just no good! Like you say though cant see why the firm would want to risk any bad publicity with all the competition out there. Could be just a glich in the software?? or a coincidence?
