Re: Northern Monkeys reunion poker night coming soon?

They did an even eight way chop when average stack was 12bb, Banksy took just short of a bag.

Favourite hand from the olo cash, raised button blind to £25, 4 callers. Bet £25 on flop blind, small blind shoved £73 and folded to me.

Well I'm not folding and I'm not looking. We do a win :-)

Re: Northern Monkeys reunion poker night coming soon?

If you are going, don't be late. They only have a limited number of dealers - many of them have resigned and moved to 235 where apparently the pay is better - so the comp is limited to 5 or 6 tables. A couple of weeks back there was a 15+ alternate list right until the last opportunity for late entry.

Re: Northern Monkeys reunion poker night coming soon?

8pm start, 3am-ish finish. They put on a free meal at the break for the players. The fact I've finished 16th and 10th in a two card comp tells you all you need to know about the standard. First level blinds are 100/100, most opens are to 700 and get 4 callers. More importantly Chris, a 1/1 PLO456 ca...

I'm working in Manchester occasionally at the moment, I usually end up at Bury New Road on Tuesday nights for their regular 2/2/5 Dealers Choice game. I might be there on the 4th.

Re: Brexit

Agree 100% that's their normal role. This isn't normal though. Biggest cultural, economic, societal event in 70+ years, going to dominate the nation for another 20 years at least.

Re: Brexit

Interesting times for Labour. Is your primary aim hurting the Tories or helping the country? Can't help wondering if they were to be seen to get something over the line, change leader and call a vote of No Confidence whether they might then be in power for a decade or more.

Re: HORSE DEAD HEAT RULES

What they've settled seems to agree with https://help.ladbrokes.com/s/article/Dead-Heat.

Your horse can only finish in one place i.e. joint 3rd. There is no 4th place.

Nice try though :)

Good question. I consider home somewhere I've never really lived. Like you I was born in Norfolk, my folks had just moved there a few months before. Left when I was 5 and before I was 11 we lived near Worcester, Glasgow, Leicestershire and Reading, I then spent 20 years in Reading and nearly 20 year...

Re: SOME EXAMPLES of today's standard of online poker

(A2)36 vs (A3)67 in Superstud, it all goes in for 4x ave pot, I end up with A236KKK and lose to a house.

And he went on to finish 3rd, sigh.

And I felted him when he joined the cash game later when I bust his rolled up Aces. Life is sweet.

Total noob here when it comes to betting, however if I was to do a e/w Super Heinz and I got a 1st a 2nd and 2 x 4rth places should I be expecting a return?
I would think so yes.

Well done to the winners, PM me your bank/paypal details and I'll sort it out later tonight.

Special mention to '27 misses in a row and only avoided the wooden spoon in the last race' Sheddy :D

And thanks to tipsters for making it easy to run as always.
