Having now gotten over the strange tournament structure and also over my own poker purist views I have to say the night was very enjoyable. All of the guys that played were really welcoming and good fun. There was a mix of players ... some that obviously play regular and some that like to hold two cards whilst they drink beer. The main thing is that they all enjoyed themselves and obviously are a group that meet weekly for this event.
I have to say also that the guy that organises it certainly does his bit and I think you earn points on a weekly basis for prizes at the end of the "season".
So if you are in the vicinity of the Bath Road near Heathrow and can get to the Jolly Waggoner pub I am sure that these lads would welcome you to play.
Will I be going again ... ?
Well I would personally like a to see a better structure; perhaps a freezeout from the start with 3000 chips or a limit of one add on at the end.
But it is what it is ... its only a fiver ... its poker ... and it gets me out of the hotel.
So if they'll have me back I'll be there.
Until Next Time
Keep it Tight!
