Irish APAT - Great weekend
« on: June 04, 2007, 16:24:27 PM »
Hi everyone - Big thanks to APAT for the event this weekend.  Once again I thoroughly enjoyed myself even with the early exit.  Hello to everyone I met and I hope you all enjoyed it as much as me.  Congratulations to the winner and roll on the next one!.

My mate Gerry Smyth went out in 35th with QQ against K10.   UL Gerry.  A double up there would have pushed him to 36k and back in the hunt.

P.s.  - Own trumpet blowing here!  Well - why not.  To my great suprise I won the Omaha / Hold Em event on Saturday evening so the weekend was made even more enjoyable!!  Hi to everyone I played against in that tourney too as other APAT players had enrolled too.   I really enjoyed the switching poker formats and we had a great game. 

See you all soon.

I have to say too a big THANK YOU to Tikay, Des, Richard and all the APAT staff for a great and enjoyable weekend, organisation was perfect and I had a blast.  Also have to say how outstanding the staff were at the Fitz, one guy in particular (didnt catch his name) but he pretty much organised all the tourney stuff and I dont think he slept, 1st class job by him all the way.

Looking forward to meeting you all again at the next one, such a great bunch of people and a pleasure to meet you.

Cheers

Just like to add mine and the wifes thanks for a fantastic weekend.

There are so many names I could mention but I"m bound to miss one out and upset someone, so to everyone involved a BIG THANK YOU.

Also a word of warning to any young and unsuspecting Apat members out there.
If you get invited to play in a Sit "N" Go on a Friday before the event with Tikay, Richard, Colchester Kev, Brendan, Lee Mulligan, Jane, Ben and Aisling and many others (sorry cant remember all your names). BEWARE, it maybe called Poker but not as we know it. This was the most enjoyable few hours of Poker I think I have ever played (sober), Richards dealing and making up rules as we went along was classic. Hope to be lucky enough to play in one of these again one day.
Thanks again.

Just like to add my thanks to the APAT guys from me (Jack) and Petch (FrankyWortho) absolutely fantastic weekend. Great to put more names to faces and indeed to put more faces to names! Met Dewi, MickeyP, NewportLad and Foggy for the first time - all top blokes. Doc Farrell was a pleasure to share a table with and even offered us a lift to the airport on Sunday night - thanks!

Could have been even more memorable if Steve Lacey (Steveinhants) hadn"t knocked me out in 22nd (despite the fact Tighty said I"d made it through to the last 20 and day 2!) - he also crippled me in Newcastle. I could get quite annoyed if it wasn"t for the fact he"s such a lovely bloke.

Oh and Des - thanks for giving me the medal - twice! A thing of beauty and I"m sure a joy for ever.

Bring on the next one!

Yes, agree with everyone, the weekend was a good weekend out even though I went out 5 mins before dinner on the saturday..!!

The following trip to the bar around the corner found loads of APAT players and an enjoyable moan about losing, LOL...

Look forward to next one..!!

Cheers
