arrrgghhhhhhhhh, patience is a virtue and all that (espeially in poker as Mr Kendal keeps reminding us) BUT even mine is starting to run out now.   And yeah, I know I shouldn't but I'm starting to worry a little...

Just had that conversation with Tighty - may not be as clear cut as we would hope - lets all just think positive thoughts....

Why not clear cut??? could you explain ...or would it be inopurtune to do so at present?

Was there ever a time mentioned for the announcement - or is it just a case of them deliberating and conjugating and then telling everyone when they're ready?

Tighty knows nothing  (about anything at all actually) we were just talking and guessing like everyone else. Sorry.

Yes, I've got his voice in my head now.  It's not pleasant.  Especially when there are already lots of other voices in there, all arguing...

I had to leave the hearing at 12pm today, to attend a funeral at Redditch of one of my longest serving staff, Lisa Bayliss. She took her own life tragically last week at the age of 35 - I decided that no matter what was happening at the hearing, I would make it to the funeral, when events like this happen, it really puts a casino licence into perpective.

Anyway, the latest news from today (Day 2) is:

1. The 3 Magistrates visited dusk till dawn today and were given a tour by Simon Trumper. They also visited London Clubs International's card room, apparently they were already familiar with Stanleys and Gala casinos.

2. All evidence from dtd, Gala and Stanley has been given now. Gala and Stanleys put one Director from each of their companies on the stand today.

3. Tomorrow at 10am, each of the three Barristors will give the "closing statements" to the court, then the court will break for lunch, and between 1pm and 2pm we will get a decision.

My next post (and maybe the final one) on this thread will be THE RESULT, good or bad.......the dtd project - "the set up of Europes largest poker club" will be at last over...............

Cheers Rob




Point 3.  But you never know with these things.

63 reading this topic ...Surely a Record... If not a record then a clear indicator of how much the DTD issue is supported by the poker playing public and how much it has gripped us

No, he used to talk about 'cogitating' not conjugating!

Happens to me all the time - girls always tell me the wrong names, along with give me wrong phone numbers. They must just all get nervous, I suppose.
