Easy

The toaster in Red Dwarf, Season 2 i believe??

Been a while.

Used to have Season One on VHS, and watched on repeat. :)

The Cat/Rimmer YoYo sketch is still the best Red Dwarf moment ever

Cash Championship Leg #1 in T-minus 71hrs!!!

Really hope to see it hit capacity as i feel its the most unique poker event, and a genius idea by those who invented it (yes, i know who!!)  and really hope APAT"rs support the event, now that they have lowered it to NL50>NL100 from NL100>NL200.



Have to agree with this. Initially i was very sceptical of this format/concept, but having played in the inaugural cash tournie at DTD i totally changed my mind. It provides a really subtle yet interesting change in dynamic and is well worth playing to any of those who are on the fence...

Why the double-n?


It happened as a mistake when i was about 13 at school and has stuck ever since.  A teacher thought that was how i spelt in on a peice of work (i had actually put Danny), and changed it on register etc.  It caught on and stuck.  My "real" 1st name is actually double barrelled and is "Daniel-James", but everyone has used Dann since aged 13.

When i say a mistake, it was a mistake made by the school and only at 16, when i got my GCSE"s (O levels for you older folk) did i notice they had updated all school records to Double-n.  So my GCSEs etc all have double n.



And Robin, i couldnt agree more!!

Some of you out there that read this (ok maybe 1 or 2) will have noticed the name has changed.  Thats because i have realised that this blog is less and less about myself and pool, but more about the emergence of a Super Group of Poker Heroes/Villains, that are taking the APAT Tour by storm..............................Hmmm ok maybe not, but its good to dream!!!

I invite all of the members of "Team Gotham" to post in this thread, whether it be tourney reports etc.

I will also post some "in-depth" Player Profiles, of all the members of TG, and we can see if the pseudonyms match the real people!!

A quick roundup of Coventry goes like this.

4 TG"s playing (Dave "Batman" Howard, Chris "Robin" Webber, Dann "Joker" Williams and Tony "Two-Face" Johnson)
3 APAT events played. (Cash, Main, Omaha)
6 FT"s (3 in Cash, 3 in Omaha)
1 Day 2"r (Chris)
1x 1st (Dave in Omaha)
2x 2nds (Tony in Omaha, Chris in Cash)
1x 3rd (Dave in Cash)
POTY Points earnt (Total = 17)
OFC Hands played = 3 (shocking!)

Since inception (Worlds Season 6 - March 2013)  Team Gotham Stats:

6 Active Members
12 events
1 x Bracelet
1 x Gold Medal
2 x Silver
1 x Side Event win
2 x Side Event R/Up
11 FT appearances
15 cashes
4 New Card Games Invented/Taught

Total Cashes: ~£9400

Bring it on!!!


EDIT.....

Looks like we are going to aim for £10k in cashes between us in Season 7. :)

Running total after Wembley and Cov:

£6095

(Now if i can just bink Cardiff for £3k ish, that would be lovely!!! "insert Welsh Accent here!")

Prop bet POTY standings. (NB all events included from S7)

1 - Dave (8pts)
1 - Dwayne (8pts)
2 - Dann (5pts)
3 - Tony/Chris (4pts)
4 - Perry (DNP)

*nb we include top 9 in all open events too (thank god - wonder whose idea that was!!)

I think you missed the flop on the one hand you played in Level 1?

Oh and Dann...

Obviously when you"ve edited the title this will make no sense!!

PLO is great, only bettered playing it in split pot format alongside a bunch of other mixed games.

Told you.

I now no longer need fold the Omaha orbit of the Horse games.

Thinking about it NLH is boring, Des can the Cardiff leg of Cash Champs be Omaha or at least Dealers Choice??
