Leicester had a total of 71 entries tonight in their Easter Beast Day one putting the total collected so far at £19,600.

Stoke's leg will be tomorrow starting at 8pm.

Then Walsall Saturday 3:30pm start & finally Coventry with a 4:30pm start on Sunday.


Smashed guarantee - can this make £50,000???

Have requested the Leicester chip counts but no reply yet. Think Walsall and Coventry should get good turnouts. Good luck to all taking part.

13 players from Stoke will be making the journey to Coventry on Monday

H. Sahnan - 164,200
D. Mckenzie - 140,300
K. Hoswell- 99,100
S. Mellor - 95,800
A. Green - 94,300
C. Filus- 92,100
D. Daw - 63,600
N. Dawood - 60,100
A. Phelan - 53,100
D. Green - 46,400
C Dell Isola - 45,400
P. Stock - 43,600
A. Booth - 42,000

Seems like Stoke attracted a few players from outside the city, which is good for the cardroom.

Why is it, that we have all weekend - 4 days, starting Thursday night ( for most of us ) and we will end up ( the lucky , brave, foolish or skilful ones) completing post midnight running into the day we are back at work.

Why not finish on Sunday with an excellent structure that can play until 6 am ( or later if required )

Just curious!

Very valid point. But I don't think the majority think as logically as you. The main pull is that "It's a bank holiday!" So come on out for a game of cards, get away from the missus for the day, promise her you'll take her away with the winnings, then invent some horrific bad beat stories that she can pretend to give a shit about when you come home penniless and too tired to look after the screaming kids!

Basically, a bank holiday tournament attracts entrants, hence the crazy numbers for this one. I wouldn't change it to be honest. It's great to have a crack at this kind of money for a small buy-in, in a pretty well-structured tournament. Beats trying to win flips all night for a few hundred quid!

146 entries at Cov today apparently? If that's correct that makes 389 + however many Walsall got. Maybe £50k is on!

Really enjoyed this tournament. Would love to see more of these 2-day structures. I don't think they need to wait for bank holidays either.

Can anyone post the final results here? Would love to see who took the top few places. I busted in 38th (I think) for a min cash.

Next one is usually the summer sizzler round about August.But these comps and the 25/25 sereis and now the GPS mini are good affordable comps with good structures. Next up for me is the 25/25 in Blackpool in April

Blackpool is always very popular and takes good money.Usually one for taking the other half.Go down Friday she goes to a show,I play poker.Saturday the Grosvenor always has entertainment and  I play poker. and go for meal.Spring now plenty going on in Blackpool.The Dungeon,Madame Tussuads,Shows etc.The b and b are usually better value than the chain hotels.You would be surprised how many travel up from the Midlands and south.Some of our scottish friends make an appearance as well. Cash games start at noon most days.Have a weekend away from the bright lights of the Midlands.

Apparently some people went home rather than wait on the alternates queue at Cov which had 30 names on it at one point during the last day 1.

I went to Walsall to play day 1 and scrapped through with 24bb's after an awful spot where I lost a massive pot full house v bigger full house.

Day two didn't go well but I hung on for dear life and even though the 24bb's I started the day with was the high point I managed to cling on with around 15bb's for 4.5 hours till the bubble burst.

1st hand after the bubble went I ran 99 into KK. Weirdly the 99 was the only pocket pair I had all day. 

Although I was card dead throughout I can't complain, as I actually got lucky twice with AJ. 

Last 10 mins on day one I open shove my last 10bb's and run into KK and he rivers a K but it gives me a middle pin straight. Then on day two I ran AJ into AQ and hit a Jack on the river when we were just 4 places off the money.

All in all I think the comp idea is terrific allowing all the players to punt for £50k for just £100. I bought in directly which I wouldn't do for a 25/25 as I feel £220 is just a bit too much to make it anywhere near good bank roll management for me.

The structure is great and Jon Baker did the business as usual at Walsall and on day 2 at Cov.
