Neil Channing Brings Black Belt Poker Academy to Cumbria

New postby VBlue » Sun Nov 13, 2011 5:52 pm

Massive, exclusive, and hugely exciting announcement from us here at Northern Poker Stars. Many thanks again to Robbo for allowing us the opportunity to post here.

Without further ado....

Black Belt Poker and Northern Poker Stars

The culmination of sporadic communication with Neil Channing since early 2010 resulted, earlier this year, in striking a long-sought partnership between the coolest, most innovative, online poker site 'Black Belt Poker', and our local members' club Northern Poker Stars.

The fruit of this partnership, and something I have been hugely excited about for some months now and that I am very proud to be able to announce to our members, is confirmed.

I make no apologies for the early announcement of this event, as it will be hugely popular and we expect to SELL OUT.

Black Belt Poker Academy - Subject: Live Tournament Play

Your Host: Black Belt Poker founder, Neil Channing
Venue: Hallmark Hotel, Carlisle
Date: Saturday, 25th February, 2012
Time tbc - but expect a morning start

Exclusively secured for our members at a knock-down price of only £119, Northern Poker Stars are the first venture for BBP's Academy away from their home at The Vic Casino, London.

The value that will be delivered on the day and that it will add to your game in pounds sterling is quite simply unbeatable in the UK poker market.

15 players will secure the tutorage of Neil on the subject of Live Tournament Play. How about the 2008 UK Irish Open champion, 2010 Luton GUKPT Champion, a 2nd placed $5k shootout finish at the WSOP for $273k, and with over $2.8m in live tournament winnings, dropping by to chat with our players a little on how it's done on the live felt?

If we go on to sell another 15 seats, Neil will be accompanied by one of the highly successful BBP pro team to ensure that tutorage is not spread to thinly and each and every attendee can gain maximum benefit from this session. 15 more seats and they will add a third instructor.

With 6 hours of their time devoted to helping you the players improve your live game, you can expect presentations, workshops, and hand analysis throughout the day's Academy.

Did I mention the cost is only £119? Unbelievably great value and one of the very reasons we choose Black Belt Poker as our partner.

Followed by.....

Black Belt Poker meets Northern Poker Stars - NLH Tournament
Format: £25/£25/£7 Double Chance
Venue: The Ukranian Club, Carlisle.
Time: expect an early afternoon start

5k starting stack with a 6k double chance stack - those players who want to start with the full 11k stack just pay £50 up-front.

90 min double chance add-on period - so take you stack at any time before the close of the 90 min period.

Neil will stay on after the Academy and will play our tournament. And he's offered to add some value (I could see that one coming) so we kindly accepted. I will confirm the added value as soon as I know.

This is your chance to meet and play alongside one of the UK's most popular live poker players, TV personalities, and poker commentators.

Neil is truly a great personality and always finds the time to speak to the Black Belt players through the community boards, his Facebook page, the BBP league games, and his own private online cash table. And he seems to just keep finding new ways to add even more value for his players.

The Academy ticket can be purchased separately for only £119.

The Tournament seat can be purchased separately for £25 + £7 as an upfront charge.

You can purchase the combined Academy ticket and Tournament seat for £151.

To purchase your seats for either or both the Academy and Tournament we will have a priority as follows:

1) Northern Poker Stars members who have opened a Black Belt Poker account from our website using our banner:


and linked their account and is showing as Yellow Belt or better:

(Come and join us at our fortnightly online league games and private cash tables - see event invitations for further details)

---If you have an existing BBP account but signed up direct please get in touch so I can help - vblue@sky.com or on Facebook chat---

Find out more here on how you can start to reap the rewards through the Belt System and climb to Orange belt:

2) We will then open up sale of tickets to other Northern Poker Stars members who do not have a Black Belt Poker account.

3) Finally, any remaining seats will go on sale to the general public.

Please contact NPS owner, Ken Johnston, on 07860 697204 , or email him at ken@northernpokerstars.co.uk, for your ticket.

If you have any questions at all on:

- the Academy day and Tournament
- the Black Belt Poker online offering
- how to link your account to become Yellow Belt
- how to earn enough points to get your Orange Belt

or anything else you can think of - then I'm your man. You can catch me on vblue@sky.com, or on Facebook chat anytime.
