I might just be getting old but 9.30pm seems a bit late for a start time.

12 levels at 30mins plus breaks would make for a 4.30am finish? OK for the end of an event but not when you are back for a Day 2.

6am bedtime (after driving home) isn't good for a family man.

8pm start time

9.30pm late reg

my bad

I did say I was getting old

I'm confused. Are you paying the £20 or not?

Having recently done sbout 20hours in a 24hour period for the DTD Speed Poker Challenge I think this bet should be about 1/100

i dont mind paying for things that i want or need


let say there is a building with 2 levels
there is a staircase and a lift too go up too 2nd level
the stairs are free but too use the lift you have too pay a yearly charge
99.9% of abled bodied people will use the stairs  i dont get the choice and have too pay
for the lift

to me this is same

Would be interested to see your evidence for this. I for one would pay the charge and take the lift because I'm fat and lazy.

Also, it isn't the same. If there was a separate lift, available only for those that had the pass, then it might be closer.

Iron. Most people on this forum are advising you not to take this stance. Some of these people may even consider you a friend.

How do you think the general public are going to react if you take this to the extent you say? I would guess they also will quickly be persuaded that the charge is reasonable and fair.

All you are likely to achieve here is a lot of frustration for you, and a lot of worry for your parents.

I think it is very unfair that a disabled person should get the VIP spot without paying for it. I am denied that space because I am able bodied. You don't have a free choice of space, I accept that. But neither do I. I just happen to have a greater number of spaces because there is a greater number of able bodied people, but there is also a greater demand.

I also think it is wrong to assume that because someone is disabled means that they need financial help. Some do, some don't. Just like able bodied people. (I'm not saying you assumed this BTW). If someone can't afford the cost of the badge then I think it is reasonable for some of my taxes to help that person. But someone who is disabled and can afford it (my Mum for example) should contribute the tiny amount being asked. £Million's of tax payers money is being spend on things like DDA so I don't think it unreasonable that those that can afford a blue badge pay for it.

Seriously?

Not really no. Just trying to point out that it isn't a one sided argument.

For the record my Mum is disabled and I do get frustrated at perfectly able bodied people using disabled spaces without a blue badge meaning she has to sit in the car and wait for one to become free.

But I think Iron is wrong in making this stance for a few quid.

OK, please help me understand this.

Some disabled drivers don't pay road tax (but can use the services that the road tax pays for).

why is this?

I signed up for the cash games before the GP promo with the intention of signing up for the sponsorship £££s.

I don't think I have reached the £100 rake requirement yet, will I still have this option when I do?

6 card omaha, ton of money in the pot both players still have money behind.

Board is QJTAK no flushes.

Player 1 says fold and turns his hand over showing KTxxxx for the nuts.

what happens now

Easy one Jim - chop the pot.

Of course, we could claim it, but thats no way to go through life, explotiing silly mistakes. If the boot were on the other foot & all that.

There is not a poker player alive who has not misread his hand. Some more than others, but I plead senility.......
