As an addition to the GUKPT and 25/25 Series Grosvenor have now announced a ‘deepstack’ series

http://www.gukpt.com/deepstack/

Of note,
£130+£20 entry for a £12,000 gtee
2% deduction from prizepool to fund a league table that applies across ALL Grosvenor Tour Events
£11.25 from every entry is converted into a 25/25 seat which becomes part of the prize pool
Any overlays will be paid out using Grosvenor Poker Tournament Credits

Form an orderly queue...

Couple of corrections
For every 20 players a £225 seat will be taken out towards any 25/25 of choice. Capped at 10 seats.
Any deepstack overlays will be paid out in cash. They voucher system will only be used for local events


What’s the idea behind these Jim, will the take over the one day specials at Luton? Or are they in addition too?

Not a fan of taking seats out of the prize pool, much prefer the Last man standing option. Not sure if personally I’m gonna play these, be a shame if the one day specials were lost.

Hi Scott they are in addition. It won’t afffect anything else going on at Luton. It’s just a new prize point comp for players to play under the 25/25
A lot of clubs don’t get 25/25s such as Plymouth or Aberdeen. So they have these now

You say every 20 entries = a £225 seat
I say £225/20=£11.25

I stand corrected on the overlays.
I trust that this will encourage them to be more aggressive in their guarantee setting

The reason why it’s different is if you got 139 players it’s still 6 seats taken out. Not 6 seats plus 19x£11.25

The form, results & (non) performance of Sanchez, who cost Man U a pretty fortune, is a bit sad to see, & something of a mystery to me.

Are you now the resident football thread fluffer?




Well, when time permits I'm trying to breathe a little life into a few of these threads, yes. A shame to see such indifference, though when posts are made it does seem to get folks posting. August was blonde's quietest month for 13 years, & September might not be much better.

The Liverpool thread is a real shame, the glory days are well & truly in sight, everything they do excites, & yet there's barely a post on the thread. 

This is because for months and months the thread asked to be policed but due to bias it was not and people like baron and kinboshi are no more.

Warnings were given and ignored.

How much are we going to lose on Stoke this year.

Can’t believe I’m not going on holiday again. Two years running.

Maybe they will be a big club in Div 1

He's gone, £140 million.

Nice bit of business, that.

Yes, good business. We've got a strong attacking force without him and our transfer record signing Keita coming in the summer.

Spend the £140m on a goal keeper and another CB for £70m each imo!

Next year is our year! Cheesy Cheesy

Former record transfer signing is coming

I'd walk a mile in tight boots to avoid daft aggro, & I am very happy playing at Luton these days, a really great bunch of lads. But I managed to get involved in not one, but two, spots of bother down there last night.

After leaving Feltham, & being busy all day, I really fancied some cash-action, so rung up Jim McShane (77Dave) to ask if there were any seats likely to be available in the Dealers Choice, as I frequently do. He said there should be a seat soon, & he'd put my name on the list. I don't know the Rules at Luton about this, but Jim seemed to think that was allowed. I subsequently gathered that you can do that as long as you arrive within 1 hour, which I duly did.

I arrive, check the Board, & I'm "next up" for the DC, with "12.32" chalked against my name, which was when I rung up.

I find a seat in the £250 Hold'Em while I am waiting, & suddenly, I'm involved in a bit of grief.

I somehow get it all-in pre- all £250 - after a Raising war with a deep-stacker. I've got AK suited, & I flip my cards on their back before the Board is dealt. Matey Boy, holding A-Q it later transpired, keeps his cards concealed - his perfect right in a cash-game. I flop trips, but it comes 4 clubs, & I don't have a club. Matey Boy is studying his hand. We wait 5, 10, seconds. "Turn 'em over please mate" I say, "then we can see what you've got". It's a weird Board, all Paint almost, & 4 clubs, & to be fair, it's tough to see what's what, but I know I've got top trips. We wait another 10 seconds, but by now, Matey Boy is shaking his head, & about to muck it appears, & the Dealer starts to push the pot my way. "Turn your hand over mate, then we can see" I repeat. Suddenly, he produces the A of Clubs, & it's his Pot, fine. But the whole table are shooting black looks at him now, for his slow-roll. Which, to be honest, it was not - he just never realised he had it. Which is the whole point - when there is no more betting action, & the Board is out there, there is no excuse for not tabling - or mucking - your hand - reasonably promptly. A few words are exchanged along these lines, & so I decide to pop outside for a gasper, I don't want this crud spoling my evening by his poor manners & ignorance.

When I get back, he's apparently had enough of the comments from everyone, & has upped sticks & gone. Oops, but such is life, & the game continues in good spirit. One player less, thanks to tikay......

A few minutes later the Seat comes free on the Dealers Choice, & one of the players, knowing I'm (officially) next, calls me across. "Seat here for the Fish", thank you.

At which point, Ambro, a good mate, & huge fun, claims the Seat. "It's mine, I was here before tikay arrived". (which he was).

OK, OK, I'm not that fussed, I can wait, & I don't argue, there's a few words spoken by the players to Ambro, returned with interest. I really don't want the atmo marred, so I say, "look guys, leave it be, ty very much, but I'll take the next Seat". But Ambro is chuntering now, he's in full flow, & he's got the Seat. No probs.

Now Nina - who, I'm delighted to say, is back from Holiday (much missed) sees the situation. "Seat at the DC for tikay" she says. And it all goes off again, Ambro is getting hot under the collar, I'm sat at the Hold 'Em Table, somewhat embarrassed. "Ambro, I'm not fusssed, you have the seat Mate", but he's head-on with Nina, & it's all going off now. Eventually, she & he agree to differ, (it seems Jim was right, & players CAN book their seat provided the arrive within 60 minutes), & suddenly, Ambro gets up & walks out in a huff. Bloody hell, I just wanted a quiet evening with a bunch of mates......So that's two players less, thanks to tikay......

Now, Nina says "come on tikay, it's your seat, it's empty" & I skulk acrosss, feeling rather bad.

Why is everyone so tetchy about everything these days? It seems the world & his wife go looking for aggro. Sheesh.

I really ain't that fussed about such trivilaties, but everyone wants to go to war over the daftest things these days. It must be the e numbers.

Oh, & yes, I do sypmpathise entirely with Ambro, & told him, sincerely, that he could keep the Seat.

Blasts from the Past: Edition III

LOLZ, this could just as easily have happened last night in the new Luton G. There's still kerfuffles about the table waiting lists - especially if Lalit's involved

When was the last time you came to luton tikay ?
Dc runs nearly every night.

The question for me is:

Was this some of money spent by the police because of the strength of the leads the police had at the time and any leads they have now

or

was it spend because the case caught public interest and was carried so strongly by the media

Are they announcing this extra fund to get to a place where they can stop the search
