Didn't get any standard raising hands all night. Only won 2 hands in total.

Went down to 1.3k but quintupled through just be4 the break.

No luck after that. Made a move with JTs. Maniac reraised with A6! Too much value not to call. Out.

Ah well. Next time.

"I did not post that"......

Nice one Ian!

I occassionally blame the cat for unintended posts, but that's a long story which I won't bore you with. True one though.....

How times have changed.........


"Im looking to travel up to for tomorrow nights 100 Freezeout.    Problem i have is that ive just discovered that Grosvenor Cardiff cannot transfer my membership up to Walsall without me signing a form at Cardiff.
Since i dont exactly live next door, and the 24 hour rule comes into effect, im snookered.

Is it possible that someone could sign me in as a guest member?

BTW: Grosvenor Walsall state that you cannot pre-register by phone.    They assure me that it should not be sold out, but i dont really want to make a 3 hour roundtrip for nothing".

In those days, you had to be in your seat when the Tourney started, or that was it, you could not play.

Simon Trumper, who was sponsored by 365Media at the time iirc, turned up 1 minute late for a £1,000 event at Blackpool one day & was turned away.

Walsall & Luton, used to delay the start time to accommodate any latecomers who rung up & said "I'm stuck in traffic". So an 8pm start, where we'd all be there nice & punctual, would eventually start at 9.30pm.

I find it hard to believe that IFM had a wayward child.

Haha, I remember that used to cause some aggro!

I was friendly with Pokerkong1 back in the day, and he came over for a £1500 at the Vic with LuckyULSA and another one of the prima/Laddies HSNL guys. Those were the good old days, he 'highhand' transferred me £10k on Laddies, I went and ordered it from the bookies, and just gave it to him at the Vic. You'd probably need to give blood to do something like that today.

They had all come over from Norway, but didn't have shoes when they got to the casino. All went to a store to get shoes, but the tournament had just started when they got back, and they all got given their £1500 back. Travelled over for a few side events, but got some nice new shoes Grin

Just looked him up; looks like he barely plays now.  He was a beast back in the day.

Most of the bets placed so far seem more like hopeful punts rather than value spots

Not a lot of them do, that I'm aware of. That said, I'm so out of touch with poker, I couldn't be sure they're not still floating about somewhere.

He flew up the levels from  $50nl to $5knl in about a year Cheesy

That was when everyone was worse than me, and even I did alright in the cash games back then.

Walsall was my introduction to live poker back in 05/06. 1000 chip rebuys, self dealt tournies, murderers and dealers, 6 card plo cash games with five quid session fees.

Good times.
