Punters Lounge Exclusive £150 added Poker League - May Leg 4 - Wed 26th May - NLHE


Recommended Posts

The Punters Lounge Poker League continues this week for May running on Wednesday nights. Once again we have £150 added to be shared between the top 3 in the league at the end of the month. 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. 

This month we have a NLHE 3000 chip tourney in Legs 1 & 2 and a 5000 chip NLHE for final leg.   Leg 3 is our PLO Leg with 5000 chips.

 > Leg 1 : Wednesday 5th May at 20.10 BST in the PL Poker Club Home Game - NLHE 3000 chips

 > Leg 2 : 12th May - NLHE 3000 chips

 > Leg 3 : 19th May - PLO 5000 chips

 > Leg 4 : 26th May - NLHE 5000 chips - (double entrants in points 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 logo mug and 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.

@Zidane123 (and any other new players) if you'd like to join in this month you'll firstly need to request to join our Home Games Club on PokerStars, preferably today as I might not be around before the game starts on Weds to accept you. :ok

The weekly game itself is a $5.50 game on PokerStars, not a freeroll.   $5 goes to the prize pool (top 3 or 4 usually depending on numbers) and is paid out automatically by PokerStars  (50c is their fee).  The £150 is added for free by PL and paid by Paypal to league top 3 at the end of the month.

Last week's bottom two turned the form around to finish top this week, well done to McG and ASE5. :clap   Muttley and Girly hold on to the top spots in the league. :ok 

Great to welcome back some more returning players. 

Next week we have our PLO leg with 5000 chips.  Looking forward to a full turnout, have one of these at home. :beer

Apologies for the late update. 

Things are hotting up at the top of the league.  McG makes it two wins in a row :clap to knock muttley off the number 1 spot, Leo moves menacingly up the table with a 2nd place finish, and ian gets 3rd place for consecutive weeks to move into, erm, 3rd :ok with Girly very close behind. 

Lots to play for in our final leg, which is the usual 5000 chip NLHE with the points multiplier.  Game all set up ready for registration.

Many thanks to Ian for his regular screenshots, and to Helen for the table updates, to Punters Lounge for their continued financial support, but most of all to Kevin for keeping Paul off top spot yesterday as (by my calculations) we would have had a tie for 1st if he had won and I don’t know what happens in the event of a tie.

Good fun, as always, with none of the vitriol found in other online poker games.  I don’t understand why more of us don’t try it.

Here’s to next month ?

Sorry folks,  was updating this today but I've just been called away and only got my phone with me. I'll finalise when I'm back at home.

Pretty sure McG is right and is our champ :clap


He definitely is! Well played McG.  Not sure who got 3rd place in the league....

Result is up :ok Firstly well done to Kev on the final leg win :clap 

McG is correct that had muttley won that final leg (and McG 4th as was) then we would have had a tie for 1st place.  In which case it would have been an equal split of 1st + 2nd prize money, half a mug and 5 pens each :D

However, Kev's intervention settled the matter and it's congratuations to McG on being May's champion :clap with muttley runner up :clap and in 3rd place with 3 top 5 finishes is GirlyWirly :clap  Well done to all of you and thanks again to everyone for taking part.  June league continues straight on this week, new thread on its way. :ok


I'll message you all to get your Paypal details so we can make the payments

1st  @McG  £75 + PL Mug and Pens

2nd  @muttley  £45

3rd  @GirlyWirly  £30
