i am already in for the North West Cracker at Didsbury. But i am going to support The Stoke leg.Not too worried if i do not get through,it is for the sake of Grosvenor Stoke.Hopefully they can attract about 30 runners,which will be good for them to partake again.

I think it`s unfortunate that the Midlands hasn`t followed the same plan as the North-West, where all evening Day Ones start at 7.00pm. 

An 8.30pm start (Hill Street) means that players who get through will be lucky to get their chips counted and get out of the building before 3.30am;  not an appealing prospect for those of us who have to go to work the next day.

Usually 10 levels on these comps, but i am not sure whether Stoke will go the full 10. In which case if they play to normal format then there has to be a minimum of 9. All other venues if they play to 10 levels then the clock has to be turned back to what ever level Stoke goes to, in which case day 2 will be longer.

I guess the Midlands is following the North-West, in which case the format is this:


"Day 1 - 12 Levels of play.


If 9 players is reached before the 12 levels have been played the clock will be stopped. If this happens at any club Day 2 will re-start from this time point. "

Apparently the Midlands are playing to a minimum of 3 instead of 9.

Hill Street (quite likely to be the most player entries) chip counts are here:

Just the 252k huh? Not bad! I have 43k. Bit of work to be done! Rumours we may be re-starting from Level 11 though due to Leicester wrapping things up early? More likely Level 12 though I'd say, so 800/1600 blinds.

18/19 of us made it through from Coventry. I didn't see a full chip count but I didn't see a bigger stack than around 140k.

Really good tournament though. Love the GUKPT structure.
