'Technically' won? Care to expand on that?

As you well no the money wasn't split, it was adjusted so the diff between first and second wasn't so big and we played for the rest. Not sure why u feel the need to publicise that (wrongly) on a forum.

Well done on spelling my first name right, about the only correct thing in that post

Wow, sorry man can see how you took my post the wrong way, I really didn't mean it like that though.

Thought it was a long enough time since the heads-up for it not to matter about deals. We were all good friends that week certainly no harm in making the gap less and that obviously doesn't discredit your win whatsoever.

You won fair and square obviously. Guess I was just trying to make Dan sound better than he actually is!

Sorry dude...

tx for the reply james and PM, see you there for a beer.

johnny texas sponsored it for one yr, the one actionjack made the final I think, 888 last yr...shame noone will do it this, maybe someone will come in late, i think that happened before. lol at the plymouth story mike.

ladbrokes have a $6k seat to this tournament ADDED to the $300 HU tournament starting on Sep 9th if you fancy playing it, any mug can become a world champ and it's a lovely city to win in! PM me if you want details.

nice plug jeff Wink might be a good comp that one on laddies.

LOL at texas johnny, one night while at a £300 comp at blackpool i had been busted and was looking for rutter to go out for a few beers. I found him at the bar with a load of people watching jonnhy texas's recent final table in a matchroom comp. I looked round and johnny was there watching it, answering a vast erray of questions like "how can you pass that" or "was there any business" he went on to finish 2nd to Pippa Flanders i believe for around $200k. He then turned round and asked if i was playing all week, i replied yes. he then asked if i could sub him a bit till tommorow, i was like GTFO sorry mate done the lot on cash.

it was the perfect prop for the nip.

Someone may come in late to sponsor it but....we have TV deadlines aproaching and need to secure spots on SKY, Antenna (Spain) and Das Vierte ( Germany) All guaranteed to broadcast the event.. IF we can get a sponsor.
How about pushing Laddies for us Jeff?...HELP! if you can...please.

Pretty obvious imo

Jeff wins the event, event is now considered a farce so no-one wants to sponsor it

How much does it cost to sponsor an event like this?

Just thinking we could all have a whip round.

I'd guess around £140k-ish.

TV poker isn`t cheap tp produce ask blue Sq and Gala, hence the cancelled filming of their tours. We have cut things as low as possible given the guaranteed broadcasts in at least three countries but still need around 120-130K for SKY etc. Some  shows cost in excess of 150k per episode and we are making three 90 min shows so not a bad deal

Its a shame PartyPoker didnt fancy it, they have pretty much sponsored every other event on TV.

Mind you, they dont have heads up cash tables, so they would be a bit daft sponsoring this I guess.
