We're getting 2020 off to a bang with the return of the PL Poker Championships and Meet Up. :cheers

The venue is again the fabulous Genting Casino and Poker Room at Resorts World Birmingham, who looked after us so well last time.

Date is Saturday 1st February 2020.

The plan is to hold a Pot Limit Omaha tournament at 2pm and the No Limit Holdem Main Event from 7pm, with a break in between so you can get some food.  Buy-ins likely to be £25 and £50 with an added registration fee. We will confirm in due course.

PL will be adding some £££s and trophies, watch this space!

To help us with organisation please vote in the poll if you will be coming.  All Punters Lounge members are welcome to come and play and if you'd like to bring along a non-playing friend, partner/spouse/family there are lots of things to do around the centre. If they would like to play they need to register on the forum please. :ok

This is great news, already sorted it with SWMBO 😀

I spent an hour or so trawling hotel websites last night. If anyone finds somewhere decent, in close proximity to RW and at a reasonable price could you post it up on here please ?

With the Genting hotel (which I was impressed with last time) seemingly already fully booked and before noticing Ian's post, I've booked into a b&b 1 train stop/short taxi/3 miles down the road. 

Reviews/pics seem good although of course the room will be basic. 

They do have a 2nd room if anyone is looking for a cheap option, £50 single occupancy of double room with breakfast, parking on the road. I've checked & they're happy for me to roll in merrily at 2am/3am although I've of course promised to be as quiet as I can be. It is however a PL do, so might just turn up for breakfast! 🤣

Message me for details.

Other hotel options locally still available from around £92 to £163 from the usual hotel comparison sites.

I am getting vibes that the APAT Team Event may well be happening on the same weekend as as the PL Poker Championships. I want to stress that this is not 'confirmed' but I would exercise caution when booking hotels without a cancellation clause until such time as an announcement is made.

I really can't see how they could organise it so quickly. We are usually asked to submit team applications in October for a January date, and even when it was March teams were submitted in November. I'm not worried (much! 🤔)

It was mentioned in hushed whispers at the APAT Counties Championships at Resorts World last weekend (not by an APAT Official though), and has been reiterated since by a trusted APATer. The longer it takes for them to make an announcement, the more likely it is that they will not be able to organise VCG in time for the end of January.

It wouldn't do any harm to put some feelers out on Sunday though Wayne :ok
