Bump !

Please note that all who are playing have to register via the Grosvenor holding tank by Jan 6th.  If all eight are not registered, we lose our team place, which might rather irritate those who have already booked their hotel room.  Shocked

Dave, I`m confident Deadly has registered.  I was talking to him at Resorts World a couple of days ago when he did so.

Yes he has now confirmed he has registered so Irish Tom has been sent all of your names and screen names to check off his list.

A full complement of registrations with 6 days to spare, many thanks to you all and have a great new year!

Blackpool (Beach)
Yeadon Way.


Friday afternoon/evening I will drive up, not sure what time yet but I won't be playing the Friday night comp so I can get an early night. Played it last time we went and regretted it the next day.

Might just have an hour or so on a cash table if the mood takes me a quiet drink.  Shocked   Very Happy

Deadly has advised me that he is in the Premier Inn at the airport for only £30. Assume Foggy and Panfried will be in the usual Premier Inn. I may play the Friday night game if I get there in decent time but it could be just a quiet pint or two ....

Quite surprised that Taxreturn and Wurzel are accepting a lift from Britain's champion dodgem car driver.

He offered me a lift but due to "work commitments" I was unable to accept. I run so good.

Grosvenor have struck again

You couldn’t make it up

We're really sorry to have to announce that this weekend's UK Team Championship will operate as self dealt until we are down to the final five tables.  NLHE side events will also be self deal, but Fri PLO and Sun ROE will be dealer dealt though capacity may be limited.

Working with the Grosvenor team, we have done everything in our control to try and improve the situation, but unfortunately time was against us in finding a solution.

To enable us to have as smooth a Main Event as possible, it would be HUGELY appreciated if a player from each of the Main Event starting tables were to come forward and offer to deal for the table - the table/seat draw can be found on the APAT Forum here bit.ly/UKTeam19seats and please let me know asap if you could volunteer to deal. 

To make up for your disappointment, Grosvenor have added 8 x Goliath seats for members of the winning team and a GUKPT £500 seat for the individual event winner. The event will run as registration fee free of course and refunds are being processed to your accounts as we speak.

In addition, Grosvenor will put on a free hot buffet for Main Event players on both days.

We are also running an Online UK Team Championship Reunion on Grosvenor Poker on Sunday 3rd February.  This will be a password protected MTT with a GUKPT £560 Main Event seat for the individual winner.  All players will be emailed the password, but feel free to ask one of the APAT team whilst in Blackpool and we will share those details with you.

We do hope that this doesn't detract from your enjoyment of what is our most popular event of the season and would appreciate your understanding under the circumstances.

Again, our sincere apologies. 

Tom

Words fail me. I don't want to piss on APAT's chips or I'd be writing a blog post right now slating this. 

I've not heard but clearly G have decided not to hire any agency dealers at all for this event and the 5 tables will be dealt by in house G staff.

I won't even attempt to play the Friday evening comp and the list on the cash games all weekend will be F'in rediculous.

How much do you want bet me they will have plenty of valets on duty and a fully staffed kitchen on Saturday lunchtime. Or will they say the usual "oh its not normally busy at lunchtime that's why we've only got one valet on"

Marvellous.  Shocked 

We could have been playing the GP at DTD this weekend or the 25/25 at Walsall, instead of trekking to the frozen North for self-deal torture.

Tania the CRM at Blackpool (for years) walked out before Christmas - don't know if it was a local dispute or she could see which way the wind was blowing. JB at Hill St had mentioned getting grief from Head Office if there was an overlay there, so there seems to be a move to leave little discretion for local management.

I'd guess some genius at head office is behind this - £1960 rake wont cover agency dealers for two days, so lets ignore the enormous sums we are going to make from having 280 pissheads in the place.

I for one will be attempting to minimise my "spend" in the G, and if/when I bust will not put a penny on the cash tables - would prefer to get a cab to the Genting.

Not APAT's fault, they have been had over.

Traffic permitting, I reckon to be there by about 7pm.  Probably won`t go to the Grosvenor, since it sounds like being a shambles.  If anyone else is around mid-evening, maybe we can meet up for dinner or a drink at the hotel ?

Aiming to arrive around the same time all being well. Think Andy, Graham, and Jonathan are arriving early so will probably be a few pints ahead of us.

Even if we boycott the Grosvenor, perhaps a trip to the Genting would be in order, as Foggy suggested? £23+£7, £1000 GTD. Could always eat there - I assume they have a restaurant? Happy to go with the flow.

Seat draw below - nice to see I am at least STARTING on the final table.

Midlands PF Dave Allan 1-4
Midlands PF Graham Cutler 3-1
Midlands PF Andrew Bailless 5-3
Midlands PF Darren Sutton 9-4
Midlands PF David Griffiths 12-3
Midlands PF Jonathan Stocker 16-2
Midlands PF Chris Filus 23 -5
Midlands PF Michael Hart 26-8

APAT TEAM TOURNIE 2019

on 2019-01-25, 17:08
Arrived safe and sound.

Think that Andy, John and I will be staying local, eating early and perhaps wandering down to see the state of play @Grosvenor before any decisions are made.

See the rest of the 'soon to be victorious' MPF TEAM TOMORROW.

P.s Following my experience in 2016, I would like to discuss what, 'if any', team tactics are going to apply (first day, day 2 or is it a free for all if/when we end up on the same table) ? Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad

I actually got knocked out towards the end of Day One, Chris.  Organisation was poor, I`m afraid.  They are evidently not tracking players` results accurately.

Re: APAT TEAM TOURNIE 2019

May i say it was a fantastic weekend away with all the team members even though we were only informed of major changes to the game 24hrs prior. The volunteer dealers in my opinion did a great job looking after the 280 players. Yes i know nobody knew who was still in or how many players left etc etc but no blame can be laid on APATS doorstep. Me and John played the Friday evening Mtt, i say played i mean we entered and after an hour we hit the pit for some side games. John is definitely the roulette king or very lucky and maybe that's his calling.

Deadly always reminds me that every team needs a head banger (not sure what he means) and apparently i'm it! I think it means any 2 cards? On the Friday night in my usual style of berating players i was in top trump mode and created enemies everywhere with individuals stating they would have my chips within an hour in the main event.

Without going on and on i will mention 1 hand that nearly caused mass vomit incidents all round the table. But there were plenty more and i mean plenty more.

In the BB i have 5,6 off and UTG shoves for 55K all fold and its on me, at this point he's punching the air and clapping saying call me call me cause you play awful. It was red rag time and with me sitting on 175K from my awful play i called. Get ready for the sick bucket. player tables QQ with one being a club and i think god i am an awful player. Flop comes down with every card higher than mine and 3 clubs, here's the miracle Turn card a 6 and river a five, i nearly fell off my chair. Whats more interesting is later on i popped to the toilet walking past Fluence and Ascot and they mention that some players were having some bad experiences at the tables (they knew it was me as the all said a Midland Poker forum player.

But anyway it was a good event and great to meet up with forum members and lets hope we can get a place in the BCPC event at resorts world in March.

Regards
Andy
