Punters Lounge Exclusive £150 added Poker League - September 'Fun' Week Progressive Knockout Wed 30th Sept


Recommended Posts

Punters Lounge is pleased to continue for September with our £150 added Poker League.  We run on Wednesday nights starting at 8.10pm, with a 20min late registration period on top of this.  All games are played in the PokerStars Home Games PL Poker Club.  The first two legs are NLHE, then for a bit of variety we have a PLO leg in week 3, reverting back to NLHE for the final leg.

 > Leg 1 : Wednesday 2nd September at 20.10 BST in the PL Poker Club Home Game.

 > Leg 2 : 9th September

 > Leg 3 : 16th September - PLO Leg

 > Leg 4 : 23rd September - double entrants in formula **

Buy in is $5.50 per leg.

Your top 3 scores of the 4 legs will count towards your league total. We will be using the usual PL poker league format, which will be updated in this thread. (The PokerStars own league scores will not be used.) Formula is -Log(position/Entrants)x100

To help boost numbers overall and in particular in the final leg we are continuing the system of doubling the number of entries used in the calculation in leg 4 (**so if 10 entries the formula will use 20 entrants). This will increase the number of points available in the final leg to make it more competitive.

All members are welcome, however you must post in this thread if asked to let us know your forum username, otherwise your placings and scores cannot be included in the league.  New players are always welcome to join in, so please spread the word and invite your friends so we can keep the weekly numbers up.

£150 Added Value

The £150 added will be split between the top 3 players of the league end, with £75 to the league champion, £45 to 2nd and £30 to 3rd.  This will be payable via PayPal at the end of the league.  Big thank you to SirPuntalot and Punters Lounge for the added funds.  The league winner will also get Punters Lounge merchandise.

Punters Lounge Merchandise

You can now win unlimited Punters Lounge merchandise, even if you have won them before. It consists of our mug with a wraparound 3D logo and also a pack of 10 pens. Unfortunately due to supplier shipping restrictions we may be unable to provide these to members who live outside of the UK.

Seeing as it didn't get enough entrants to run last time, shouldn't we conclude that some of us don't consider Omaha Hi Lo "fun"?

How about a NLHE Bounty?

PLO8 is my least favourite of all the variants tbh.

I had concluded that it was too short-notice as I'd set up the game very late and advertised it at the last minute; but you could be right.  It seems to be 2-2 at the moment (2 post likes against 2 disliking comments), so will see what other feedback we get over the next couple of weeks.

We seem to be letting Kev run away with it at the moment, he's just completed a hat-trick of wins on the bounce :clap :notworthy  and is flying high at the top of the league with 2 wins this month.  It's not over yet though, still chance for someone to take the last 2 wins and maybe catch up!

Next week is our PLO leg with 5000 chips, game is set up and registering now.

Well done to Gemic, will he be the one to catch Kev? Also thebestthere set himself up with a chance with the 2nd spot.

:clap

Plus quite an open race for the runners up positions in the league.

The final leg is back to NLHE but with the enhanced chip stack of 5000 and with the usual extra points at stake hope to see plenty having a go. :ok

Well done to Gemic who makes it two wins on the trot to equal Kev's two wins this month :clap  but is it enough to get to the top of the table?  Kev rounds off another superb month with 3rd spot tonight which keeps him ahead in the league with his 3 bests scores. :clap  And Barry's runner up spot tonight pulls him up the table to take the overall 3rd place :clap

Well done all three, and especially to Kevsul who is league champ for consecutive months after only taking his maiden leg win last month . Not sure what books you've been reading but can you share your secret please! :notworthy

Thank you again to everyone for playing this month. :ok

We have the opportunity for a 'fun week' again on the 5th Wednesday of the month (30th Sept) so we'll have a PLO HiLo game, which we tried to do a couple of months ago. Hopefully plenty of notice this time for this to run!

@kevsul as double league champion you get the honour of making the decision on the 'fun' week game for next week. Any poker variant/format (as long as Stars have it!)

Hi, thanks for this

I go with this : How about a NLHE Bounty

How it works, I presume we have a couple of bounties in the game..


Mant Thanks to PL for doing this league, could do with a few more joining in!

Bounty games on Stars are called Knockouts. They split the prize pool, half to the pool (top 3 etc) and half on bounty. I've set it up as a Progressive Knockout so if you're knocked out half your bounty goes to the person who knocks you out, and half gets added to the bounty on that person's head. I've made it $3.30 as it's 'fun' week.

There is no added money for this :ok  (unless someone is putting some up :lol )
