    Playing poker on pokerstars just now, only a $3.50 SnG and am still shaking! Been playing on and off for fun, small amounts of money for around 20 years now and my best hand was a straight flush many years ago. Just now on a SnG I finally hit it, the 649,000/1 bad boy .... saved the photo to my phone and sent to friends who were amazed!
    Finally I have one!

    Well done to teaulc on winning Leg 2   and a second FT finish for muttley and slapdash see them at the top of the table.  
    Bounty winner this week is tgc100969 who although not winning the outright multiway pot, won the balance of my chips as keaneo6 was shortstack.
    Next week we have our PLO leg again. It looks like the late registration period may have been reinstated, but if you know you want to play why not register now and get in good and early

    Apologies for missing it, was in bed at 5:30pm and not in the hot-jiggedy way lol. 
    Hopefully back next week if my back is back. 
    Great to see a return to the top 3 for the legends that are slap & tickle, congrats all. 😛

    Bounty query, thanks for the input Paul and Dan
    My reasoning is that this is only for the duration of the extra added value, so is only short term. The extra money allowed me to put a good increase into the league leaving a little left over for this.  I don't intend to withdraw money from our standard £150 added to continue it. 
    I just did it with me as bounty, and that I couldn't win my own, because as PL admin I was giving something back to the members, especially as I'd managed to place in the league a few times recently. I didn't want to force it onto to someone else, (eg. last week's winner) as it does potentiallty change the dynamics of your game, and it wouldn't be fair to affect people's chances of winning the league prizes either one way or another. (It doesn't change my game, other than trying not to give it to Dan again!)   Also the potential problem of the bounty not playing the following week. 
    No-one was more surprised than me that I did technically win my bounty one week, but in my position I would have been very uncomfortable taking the money, especially as I wasn't giving anyone else the chance to be bounty!

    Well done to Dan who did the double tonight of winning the leg and taking my bounty.
    Good to see another great turnout to start the month and to welcome back some players we've not seen for a while
    Leg 2 is set up ready for you to register for next Wednesday.

    Depends on which turn of card I decide to take the odds I suppose.  Good job I was deliberately vague in my t&cs, I can't bad beat Ian on his bad beat

    Making a bid for the Bad Beat Booby Prize... having previously ribbed AvonGirl about her bet sizing tonight, she spite-calls my 12BB 3-bet shove with a dodgy hand after a long dwell up... 😀 It's all in pre-flop and I am 89% to win on the turn 🙂 😄

    RIP Paul, you was always on hand to help me out in the early days as a poker mod which helped me negotiating all those added tournaments I arranged when poker was booming and you will be sorely missed by many of us who have been PL through and through as without you many of us wouldn’t of still been here. 
    Thoughts to all your family.

    Very sad news.  Time spent with Paul was never boring, and the way that he befriended PL members of all ages and types was exemplary.  He was not someone to stick just to his own mini clique of moderators at social events, and the way he welcomed Rob in to the PL gang was definitely appreciated.  He loved being involved in banter, but was prepared to take it as well as give it.  We will all miss him in the flesh, but his spirit will live on.  Rest in Peace Paul, a top man.

    RIP Paul ,
    Only met you twice and unfortunately wasn't able to be at the meet up in Feb due to being out of the country. 
    The first time we met was the 1st PL poker event I attended and even though I didn't know anyone you made every effort to make sure every member new and old had a good time. I hope the Punters Lounge continues in the good spirit and example that you lead by.

    It's taken me a few days to compose my thoughts on this matter.
    I don't know Paul as well as a lot of you but over the years I have spent some time with him and found him to be the kindest of people.  I think I first met him in very odd circumstances where he managed to blag PL some seats at a mini poker tournament in the middle of Leicester Square with the world boxing champion - Evander Holyfield of all people - you couldn't really make it up if you tried!  Over the years I met Paul at many of the PL poker meet ups and got to know him much better - I guess as keen boozers we were destined to be drawn to the same fun pursuits!  I think i got on well with Paul as we both shared the view of having a good time and not taking poker too seriously in these events - it was all about the banter and shots!  This was to be a theme as I met up with Paul a few years later in Vegas where we spent some days enjoying all that Vegas could offer - beer pong, one armed ladies, 6ft long tequila slushies, $1k a hand blackjack and free flowing booze  - what was not to like!  This trip will always have very fond memories for me and i was very pleased to be able to spend some time with him at Birmingham recently at the PL meetup reminiscing about those times - him and Kayla i think were quite shocked that i had such a vivid memory and that i still had photograpghic evidence!
    Paul will be missed by all that knew him.  He was a top bloke.  He was the sort of guy that you don't see for a whole year but then you meet up and pick up as if you just saw him yesterday.  Paul was a guy that loved to help people.  He helped me on several occasions when there was nothing he was getting in return other than a thanks.  I don't know a great deal about his business affairs but i do know that what he created with PL poker group was unique and will serve as his legacy.  We have a lot to thank him for. 
     
    RIP Paul.

    I've known Paul since discovering poker and joining PL in 2006 and met him first on the infamous PL race day in York/Leeds.  I sort of fell in to the role of Poker queen but many people have contributed to the success of PL Poker over the years and Paul has always supported this side of the forum, especially in recent years with PL funds in the monthly league.
    The Poker crew were very fortunate to be able to have our live event this February and have the opportunity to get together and see each other.  I know Paul would have loved to have had a race day this year too. 
    He lived life to the max, and didn't give in to the cancer.  He loved Punters Lounge and the best way to honour that legacy is to continue to support and love the place too. 
    RIP Paul, sending love to all the family.  x

    I have been given the sad duty to announce that the owner of Punters Lounge Paul Ross, better known to many as Sir Puntalot passed away in hospital last night after losing his battle with Cancer. He was 45 years old.
    I have known Paul for nearly 20 years and many of the members got to meet him at various PL Race days and Poker tournaments.
    He was a very good friend to me and was always there on the end of the Phone, Skype, Slack etc....
    Paul was very straight forward and always strived to make Punters Lounge the best betting site on the internet, he knew this day was coming and has a team in place to carry on the good work and as he would say, its business as normal.
    The funeral will be next week sometime which will be a small family affair due to the Coronavirus situation.
     
    Many thanks for the continued support.
