@ NI snooker.

Is White rocking an iffy syrup?

More of an iffy thatch unless that's fallen out - he's been wearing one for decades now.

It looks like he still has his hat on underneath.



I have noticed that the latest version seems a little crowned.

I love Jimmy and have known him since he was 16/17 years old.

My first memory of him was seeing him and his then girlfriend playing gin-rummy in the room above Pepe's Mazurka club in Soho whilst waiting for Ted Isles's nightly poker game to begin. When the late lamented Victoria snooker-hall was closed down c1981 many of the regulars of whom I was one moved to Wandsworth just across the river to feed our addiction for the game. It was the lair of many and various characters from tic-tac men at the local greyhound tracks to dealers in the West End spielers one of whom was a well-dressed lad who played a decent game of snooker and also happened to work as dealer at The Mazurka - Steve Jermyn - who when he realized I was a gambler and interested in poker offered to take me to the club, introduce me to the gang and have a game if I fancied.

So started another major change of direction in my somewhat chequered career.

Such a tease Ralphie.

did you beat any of those guys tom?

Oh I wasn't playing Iron, I was there in a managerial capacity.

 

Robert Manns, a good friend of mine was managing Bill Werbeniuk, Danny Fowler and Alain Robidoux at the time.
He was all set to travel to Bangkok with the players when something went tits up with one of his other business ventures. Apparently it was an emergency that required his personal attention so he was unable to go to Thailand.

The flights and hotel were booked and paid for, so I did the right thing and offered my services. He deputised me and I went in place of him.

It was my job to make sure the players got enough sleep, didn't drink alcohol and stayed away from girls.

That went well.....

Have to say I prefer sky commentary team compared to BT Sports. Found Boycott especially annoying on commentary.

they need to follow the richie benaud, dan maskell maxim of let the pictures do the talking.much too much babble

i was dozing away to TMS instead of the TV after an hour

I like Graeme Swann (as a cricketer and a character) but just couldn't put up with him chuckling mid sentence at his own jokes for too long!

(still better than the horrendous Tufnell though)

Assuming his name is Tony then yes it is, certainly if he has played for BCPC twice it his the same one, just watch him with Taps in Blackpool (they tend to break).

I'm already looking forward to it and I've got to survive January first which can mean 24 hour work days trying to get everyones tax returns in!

Ralph, I know you're not keen on their rebuy/reentry policy but the Monday comp at DTD is a decent structure, isn't a shove fest IME and attracts a pleasant crowd.

Thanks Grant - perhaps one of these Mondays I'll relaunch my live poker career.
