Well that's what usually happens.

Its was sooooooooo badly organised last night that it didn't start til 10pm. there were arguments galore and it eventually went to a chip count (5 people involved).  The whole situation wasn't helped by people drawing seat numbers who werent even paid in or had taken the place of a 'friend' - it was chaos.  The managers tried their best to sort it but when you have up to 15 people at a time all giving their opinions and shouting at you it must be difficult.

Not much of a report i am affraid as we started the final at 4:50am and last 3 hands were at 5:30am.  All i can say is that the 5 shortest stacks all went more or less in order (they included greek/scouse/bald headed/loud fella Chris (10th) and Adrian Swingler from Sheffield/Retford/Cloud Cuckoo land (8th) )

The final result was:
1.Sean O Donnel took the lions share of 7500
2.Scottish 'Steady' Eddie (5000)
=3.Myself and Ali Ahmed (not bag of bollocks Ali but the other one - yes! there are 2 Ali Ahmeds) both got 3800
5.Corrado Lane took (3100)

I was chip leader going into the final with 103,000 but had sean immediately to my right who was 2nd in chips and acting like a man possessed.  He raised at least once a round and showed several of his hands (AQ, AK, 66 and alike) - it was obvious he didn't really want any action so kept showing his hands in case there were any non-believers in the house.

I went COMPLETELY card dead and even when i had a marginal hand to raise with, Sean fecking well beat me to it - pah!

Anyway - 99 seats sold my 7:25pm, which meant some of the players began selling their seats for more than face value, which lead to arguments from the guys who were on the reserve list, which all meant we didn't get going until 10pm after we had a register of names (just like being back at school) and a few people were unceremoniously ousted from their overly priced black market seats and replaced with the genuine 'reserves'.

All fun and games and i am now assured that it WON'T happen again. - things are gonna change for next month apparently!! hmmmmm! - we'll see.

Next month is a 200 PLH re-buy comp and you can and must register beforehand to avoid dissappointment,  they will have another 2 tables by then, which means 120 capacity. - value folks - come and get it (1st Sunday of every month)

Well done Greg, and thanks for a nice response.

IMHO and plenty others I think, there is a real problem with pre-registering for tourneys like this.
It is basically why I stopped playing the Sheffield 50er:
Some toerag has bought a ticket just to sell it on at a profit.

Well it ain't gonna be me! and I cannot believe that the casinos allow it.
I'm damn sure that the gaming board would have an opinion.

OK, enough ranting for one night, got a new driver ordered must rest, I'll be be knocking it by you next week !

wow, i'm astonished this sort of thing can happen!!!!
I'm pretty sure you can't transfer preregistered tickets at all and you have to show your face/checked against your piccy to pick the ticket up!!
Is this just a notts thing or do blackpool have the same problems hehehe,

Only 3rd Greg?

Wasamatter wiv ya?

You oughta EAT them boys!

But well done, another fine result.

Rumour has it that the fading star Thewy was down at Notts last night, & made his 24th Notts appearance in a row without finalling. Methinks he's past it, they've got his number now.

Nice result Greg
I have to say that it really was a shambles tho-
From my point of view pre registration is the way forward,- and preferably pre drawn seats bit like they manage in Walsall.
In any event although the Nottm Gala is a good tourney my biggest complaint is that they never start on time.
Just grumbling really cos I went out 14th and had to wait till 4-15 am. to do it!

Any news on the STG or NL at Nottm Gala yet-- Malc M
