If anyone has any questions about me, fire away!
APAT-wise, I played all 4 of the WCOAP events at the Vic and have played Cardiff twice and Luton once. I managed 4th in the first Online Stud champs. Hold Em wise, aside from a 100% satellite success rate, I've not got anywhere near the final table, let alone winning - though I've had a fair amount of deepstack success over the last few months (no more brag, I promise!). Have played very little online (I am a live specialist if truth be known) but intend to change that in general this year. I also post frequently on The Hendon Mob forum.
As mentioned, I am heavily involved in the live scene (not quite as much now as a few months back - numbers have died recently) and am surprised to not recognise a single name from my live exploits? Aside from the two people I know personally on the list. If anyone has any queries about the live scene in Southampton, then I'll be happy to field any questions, a schedule of what's currently available is below. Not sure what P********h or Bournemouth have poker wise.
Has anyone played in the Southampton casinos before? Any reason for or not? Will be interested to know and I can relay any feedback to relevant TDs!
Leigh mentioned to me the possibility of some kind of informal meet up, so again, any suggestions/ideas - post them here! Perhaps one of the tournaments below...
Harbour House, Town Quay, Southampton:
Tue - £20 rebuy, NLHE, 1000 starting chips, £4k guaranteed with 35 runners
Thur - As above, last Thur of each month is a £100 double chance freeze with 2x3,000 chips
Sat - £10 rebuy, same structure, £2k guaranteed with 35 runners.
Have been a lot of overlays the past few years, and the Saturday comp is one of the few where numbers are holding.
Grosvenor, LeisureWorld, Southampton:
A new Grosvenor-wide league is starting 19th January. £100k and Vegas trip to play for.
Mon - £10 rebuy Bounty, 1000 chips, double add-on. Think it's a 75/25 split prizepool/bounties
Tuesday 20th January - £200 freeroll, 5,000 chips. If you want to see what the place is like, this would be ideal, get there early though!
Other Tuesdays - £40 Drag Race freezeout, 5000 chips, £2k guaranteed. Not sure what they've done to the structure, I think it's fast early, and slows down after 4 levels, that's a guess though.
Wed - £25 semi-freeze, one rebuy OR add-on. 3000 chips for each. Good structure for this one, great little comp if it gets 40+ runners.
Thur - £15 semi freeze and 2500 chips. Not sure about structure for this one.
Sat - £50 Deep Stack Freeze, 10,000 chips
Sun - £30 Triple Chance, 6000 chips in 3 lots of 2k, to be taken whenever you like in the first 2 levels.
All comps start at 8, last reg is 10 mins before for the Gros comps, whereas they start a bit late at Harbour usually.
Harbour charge 10%fee, give you a buffet for the £20 game and sandwiches for the £10 game. Gros charge higher fees, and give you bugger all.
Good crowd at the Grosvenor, ok at Harbour. Cash game 50p/£1 every night at the Gros dealer dealt. 5% rake. Harbour have a 1/2/5 dealers choice game which usually has a few thousand on the table (Marc Goodwin played there last week apparently).
Oops, prob too much info, but if you've got to this point - congratulations
