Is this the Hill street one?

Getting spoiled for choice on the 20th April. Quite fancy playing a bit of live PLO.

It is indeed. The monthly Omaha has been running for a long time, probably 18 months, and has "seen off" the rival event that Broadway started in competition with the old Gala. Jon and the team at Hill St get no end of compliments on here and elsewhere about the quality and structure of the tournaments and how well they are run.

No idea why they get all the plaudits just for doing their jobs right, it cant be hard LOL ... Very Happy

With so many poker venues in the midlands fighting for the ever decreasing number of players it's great to see a cardroom recognising the games players want to play and brave enough to make such major changes to their monthly schedule to provide them.
This is the best cardroom schedule I've seen for some months, I will definitely be playing this venue. Well done guys!!!!

Thank you for the kind words guys...

We believe in offering good value with no gimmicks - No add-on's, no hidden agenda & no multi re-entries!

We also believe in offering the best quality of dealers & the most consistant rulings/standards possible.

Only time will tell if we are successful with this format or not.. one thing is for sure we will have some sizeable overlays especially as the guarantees start to climb and we ram into a big event somewhere. We can only reward the players who play here so guys - make your choice.

Oh, and by the way, don't think we have forgotten about you cash players out there... we're working on something that will make sure you'll want to play here... Very Happy 

Regards,

I think the best part is no add-ons, chips should be won not bought.

Anyone know the last train from New Street to Wolves? Would love to get over for a few of these but not driving at the moment and fear I would have to wait around until 5ish in the morning if I busted around midnight.

Ahh just checked. Bout half 11 in the week and 1.42am on a Fri night. Looks like either driving or winning the tournament and getting a taxi  Razz

An update on Growing Guarantees...

on 2014-05-02, 00:33
We are now into week three of our Growing Guaranetees and finally WE ARE GROWING THEM!!!

After running up against Dusk til Dawns Grand Prix in week one we knew we wouldn't be huge in week one but the signs are promising for a successful promotion!

The Guarantees have grown most on our Thursday £40 - 20k chip game with it now sitting on £3100. So far we've hit every guarantee this week increasing Monday to £1900, Tuesday to £2100, Wednesday to £1900, Friday currently £1900 & the weekend's Tournaments sitting on our advertised (but still great value!) guarantees above.

Next Saturday (11th - 5pm start) is our Monthly £50+5 - £6,000 Guarantee tournament so hopefully I'll see plenty of MPF players that day. 

Regards & Best of Luck
