Northern Monkeys reunion poker night coming soon?

Ok well myself and Mr Banks arranged to meet in Manchester for a game.

Initially we decided on a £90 £10k guarantee at the 235 Casino (where he once had our forum do) in Manchester last Saturday of the month when they run it.

But seems some of you busy Northern Monkeys might not be able to make it, as you have arranged to tug one off in advance on that night?

So the alternative is G Casino central Manchester also on Bury New Road, as apparently every Tuesday they have a £7500 £50 with £50 rebuy/addon.

So we either make it the 235 on the 25th May or as that don't seem to fit many, we go for the G Casino Tuesday game a bit later let's say 4th June?

Can anyone interested state their preference please?

It will just be a friendly meet/piss up.

Just whack down your preference or if you got a better idea then fire away?

I would prefer the 235 game on a Saturday, but seems like Nils and Emmerson can't make it, and they are proper Monkeys so we need them on the firm? :D

So either one we got two definites so far:

25th March 235

Banksy

4th June G Casino

Emmerson
Harry (this HarryR or Man City Harry :?: )
Longines 6/4 to go

Thought we were playing poker son and a few bevvies not having a tare up?

Not sure if it matters when you are sitting playing poker does it?

Well you can't do last Saturday this month? Neither can Austin, end of June I am in Vegas, so with your idea would have to be end of July?

So how about we do the 4th June, then have a Saturday tare up end of July Nils ?

If we were going on the piss in the town I would understand mate, I would prefer the Saturday game, but would prefer having more the merrier? But it's just a game and a meet up with a few beers thrown in?

To be fair I don't mind doing the 25th at the 235, and the 4th June too, its only an hour drive for me.

How about we just say who fancies/can do the Saturday 25th May and also the 4th June? :help:

Rivher 25th and 4th June.......

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.

4th June then will be best by the looks of it?

Although a school night seems a lot more are available then.

Seeing it's only a game of poker and not a forum event, hope to see a few of you there?

The Tuesday holdem game is a good structure, even I've made the final two tables so it's obv soft as well.

It's probably not that soft, it's more down to only 2 bottles of red instead of the usual 4 🍷

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 cash game normally gets going around 10.

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.
