BCPC Team Event at Broadway Casino SATURDAY APRIL 28TH

on 2018-01-19, 18:24
The Black Country Poker Club Annual Team Championships will this year take place on SATURDAY APRIL 28TH and in their 10th year as a Club, for the first time they will be playing the event in a Casino.

BROADWAY CASINO in Birmingham will be hosting the event.in 2018, although the format of previous years remains the same.

The entry fee this year will be £220 per team, which includes £20 towards the hiring of the casino. The BCPC will pay the rest.

There will be prizes for the teams finishing 1st and 2nd on the day, with the winners also receiving the coveted BCPC Silver Salver to keep for one year. There will also be prizes for each individual table winner and also the top two overall points scorers over the three games.

Each game will feature a 5000 starting stack on a 20-minute clock and the opening game kicks off at 1pm with the last game expected to finish in the early hours of Sunday morning. Each game normally lasts 3 1/2 - 4 hours.

There will be a food break set for around 6-7pm following the first game. This food is purely optional and you will be offered the opportunity to pre-order nearer to the date of the event.from the menu available at the casino.

All games will be self-dealt and players drawn in seats 1 and 6 will be the designated dealers for alternate levels, unless someone decides to deal throughout.

The casino will be open from noon on the day and while you do not need to join, you WILL need to register before you gain entry and have your photo taken so please arrive in plenty of time to complete this process. If you look under 25, you will need to bring photo ID or risk being refused entry.

IF FFORUM MEMBERS WOULD LIKE TO TAKE PART IN THIS EVENT I CAN REGISTER OUR INTEREST BUT PLEASE LET ME KNOW ASAP.

This event takes a massive amount of organisation behind the scenes and the earlier Brian knows about team numbers, the smoother everthing runs.

All payments must be made by SUNDAY APRIL 15TH.

I will play if needed to make up a team, Dave, but I have no problem in standing aside if there are sufficient others.  It`s my birthday that weekend and the wife will probably prefer me to take part in some sort of family gathering.

It would be a shame if we don`t participate, I think.  We narrowly missed out last year and certainly have the potential to win it.  Also, the Broadway will be a more pleasant venue than previously.

Underwhelmed by the response to this - so I guess that's a no then?

Not necessarily, Dave.  It could well be that some of our regular team haven`t seen the thread.  I`m going to be at Hill Street for the 25/25 tomorrow and will have a chat with any of the guys I see there. 

Mike is usually keen to play in anything that`s not in a Grosvenor so that he, as a Grosvenor employee, can take part.

How about texting people like (for example) DaveG, Wurzel, Jinx, Deadly, Mike ?  I probably have some of their phone numbers, but it`ll come better from you as gaffer.

I was unaware of this till this morning. Broadway is a big plus but self deal a minus. How many players needed for a team?

I would probably be able to play if we had a team and maybe be able to round up some others if needed.

If it`s the same as last year, it`s teams of four.

I didn`t personally deal a single card last year.  There were always enough volunteers at each table, and they were reasonably competent.  But, of course, that`s not gauranteed.

I talked to Mr.Glonk at Hill Street.  He would be happy to play but is not sure about his availability.  His services have also been sought by another team and they have prior call on him, should they succeed in putting an entry together.

I'll be up for it then, if we get a team accepted. We could do with winning it so we get our name noticed for next years APAT team event.

Thought it was five to a team? Last year it was teams of 5 and consisting of 3 STT games. Will check with Brian ........

Deadly has said he is in, so interested parties appear to be:

Fluence
Hmrcustoms
Deadlyscfc
Ascot
need one other assuming Panfried is getting a birthday treat somewhere .....

Anyone else interested?

WILLING BUT NOT VERY ABLE ?

Hi All, 
Not playing many live tournaments this last year, so, following my dismal performance in previous BCPC tournie, I thought that I would let others have first go at getting a team together but if I'm needed I'm always willing to come along.

As a stalwart of the team event in the past, I am sure everyone would be glad to have you back on board Graham. Given the format of this event I imagine it is less likely that you will run into a team mate in a key pot!! Can I put you down as playing?

I have advised BCPC that we WILL be putting a team in. Brian seems very keen to get the money in early, but I shall hold off as long as is reasonable - it's not till the end of April, after all. It'll be £44 a player and when everyone has given firm commitments I will communicate payment arrangements.

Graham has been in touch and confirmed he is up for this so the lineup will now be

Wurzel
Fluence
Hmrcustoms
Deadlyscfc
Ascot

If nobody else is desperate to claim a place then that would appear to be our lineup.

Brian is now hassling teams to get the money in. Although it is some time away, Broadway have only guaranteed him 12 tables (so 24 teams) and 26 teams have so far registered an interest. So he is adopting a first come first served approach and unless Broadway can allocate more tables, two teams will lose out. I think I trust Brian to be sitting with £5000+ without running away to the Caribbean!!

As a result I aim to send him the money before the weekend, so if any of our team think they wont be able to make it please say so now.

I will pm the players who have volunteered to play with my bank details, and will need £44 of each of you as soon as you can please.

I have gone ahead and paid for the team just to ensure our place is guaranteed. I also asked Brian not to invest the buy-ins in Bitcoin over the next two and a half months, but he's a good lad and has been trusted with the BCPC finances over many years Very Happy

You should have a pm in your inbox with my bank details - have received Darren's money so let me know on this thread when you have sent yours.

Good luck us!

Deadlyscfc - PAID
Fluence - PAID
Wurzel
Hmrcustoms - PAID
Ascot - PAID

Sorry for the delayed reply Jon, I have been in Spain for the last week (hence the bulk upload of schedules before I went!).

Team members are now all paid up, but happy to start a reserve list as something may come up for any of us between now and the 28th April :

Deadlyscfc - PAID
Fluence - PAID
Wurzel - PAID
Hmrcustoms - PAID
Ascot - PAID

1st Reserve: Tandyman

looks a pretty reliable bunch but thanks. I might pop up on the day to say hi either way.

Looks like you enjoyed Spain.
