Individual Championship 2010 - 12th June in Carlisle

New postby VBlue » Thu Feb 04, 2010 8:10 pm

We are proud to announce our inaugrual Individual Championship to the members of Furness Poker.

This will be our premier annual event. We are in touch with our sponsor to provide a Cup for the winnner, following their generous donation to our Team Championship of a silver cup worth 1,000.

Buy-in - 200 + 20
Starting Stack - 15,000 chips
Blinds - 45 min clock

More on the full blind schedule will follow nearer to the event.

How Can I Qualify For This Event?

1) Contact me here by Private Message to book your seat directly and arrange payment for a total cost of 220.
2) Play one of our monthly online satellites. Follow the banner at the foot of this message to sign up for membership at Northern Poker Stars and a Pacific Poker account.
3) Organise your own live STT satellite. 22 x 10 players with the winner taking the seat.

We currently have 18 players already qualified for this event through our online and live satellites.

We would like to attract players from across Cumbria and further afield would love to see as many of Furness Poker players represented as possible.

We are currently working on some further announcement for this event and I will drop back on as soon as I have any information.

Cheers

Mark.

I really think this will be a great day out for us locals and may I suggest we think about maybe putting on qualifier game to get seats.
Also if anyone local is interested in playing and is looking for a part sponsorship or stake please let me know

I will likely be buying straight in to this as I won't be in Barrow much before then for any live sats.

Is it planned to be an afternoon/evening game or over two days? The structure seems nice and deep.

Think it is 2pm start, maybe extending to two days depending on numbers.

Actual structure hasn't been confirmed yet Callum, but believe it is 15k chips on a 45 min clock. Be no good for a young "raise", "raise", "raise" hoodlum like yourself :lol:

Thanks Jon.

It may be a challenge to slow my aggresion in a long format like (may have to cut out the four betting) that but it will definitely whittle out the weak. I may have to 4 table on my laptop at the same time.

Callum, thanks for your interest in the event.

I have asked Ken Johnston to send any further event details as and when they become available.

I will ensure that I continue to keep you all as informed as I possibly can.

Kind regards

Mark.

I am real sorry and dissapointed, but I don't think I am going to be able to make this as I have something come up on that w/end. Hope it goes real well though.

OK Jon. Sorry to hear that you won't be there. Thanks for letting me know.

You will have to wait another year to make your claim for the title of 'Poker Champion of Cumbria'.

I see this clashes with England's opener in the World Cup against USA.

Are you sticking with the date? Asking out of pure selfish reasons.

Yes mate. I did bring this to the attention of Ken Johnston.

We are looking into putting a big screen up with the match on.

It seems that whatever date you pick, there is always something on somewhere else.

Cheers.
