Punters Lounge Exclusive £150 added Poker League - January Leg 4 - Wed 27th January - NLHE


Recommended Posts

Well it looks like we are set for more of the same fun lockdown times in 2021 that we enjoyed with 2020. :eyes So stay at home with us and we here at Punters Lounge will keep you entertained again and continue to bring you added value with our £150 added Poker League. :cheers

Our January League starts this week and will run on Wednesday nights.  Games start 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. 

Our Bounty leg seems to be popular so we will continue to hold this in Leg 2.  This month will be a standard Bounty format (50% of your buy in becomes your bounty).  League points will be calculated only on finishing position, and bounty payouts will be made according to PokerStars normal rules.   Leg 1 and 4 are standard NLHE, and Leg 3 is our PLO Leg.

 > Leg 1 : Wednesday 6th January at 20.10 GMT in the PL Poker Club Home Game - NLHE 3000 chips

 > Leg 2 : 13th January - NLHE 3000 Chips Bounty

 > Leg 3 : 20th January - PLO 5000 chips

 > Leg 4 : 27th January - NLHE 5000 chips - 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 to the forum 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 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.

Great to see so many new players and returners to the league and another 'lockdown' turnout.   Well done to pablo007on the debut win, and good to see Bart hasn't forgotten his skills :clap

Next week we have our Bounty leg so $2.50 of your buy in will be on your head for the player who knocks you out to win. :ok

Cards fell well for me tonight at the right times.  Sorry about the limited chat from me - chat box covers the table on the IPad version.

That's really annoying, it happens on the Android app also. Besides the lack of information on the tournament (payout, remaining players,etc..) On the plus side is makes you focus.

I'm still smiling at my final hand my pocket aces v pocket jacks both all in pre flop...I flopped an ace  turned away from phone to have a drink thinking I had trip aces and won the hand only to look back at phone to see only 68 chips.I had to check previous hand only to see other player hit river river jack jack.?

Awesome turnout :notworthy  great to see players old and new joining in.

Well done to McG, so much for a bounty game sharing the prize money round a few more :lol :clap  Just rewards for introducing a few new players to the forum :cow

Pablo produced another good performance to hold onto the top spot in the league with McG and Bart close behind. 

Next week we have our PLO leg and 5000 chips so you don't throw them away too quickly :ok

You're welcome! I usually glaze over when somebody regales me with their bad beat story, but this one is a doozie. Note that on the flop JJ has no back door flush/straight draws, and no way of splitting the pot. He has to hit running Jacks.

When I said you are 99.9% to win, I was quoting your actual equity. I wasn't just estimating it!

Well done to the_dak our winner of the PLO leg :clap  and good to see a turn around of fortunes for those on the podium tonight :ok

Top of the league has had a little jiggle round and it's now McG taking the lead. 

Another brilliant turnout, leaving us a the prospect of a race for the top in our deciding leg next week. We have a 5000 chip NLHE for the final leg :ok
