Anyone playing in this event at Crown?

I entered the first event - No Limit Holdem - today ... which is on Wednesday night. See how it goes.

Maybe one day I'll play a chess tournament again ...

Good luck Kerry! :)
Finished mid-field in the No Limit Holdem event, around 320th in a field of 625.
Another player who was a regular at chess events in his younger days, Ian Wright, finished in the money in 29th.

I did somewhat better in the Limit Holdem event, finishing around 45th in a field of 188, though again out of the money.

Methinks I'll play one more event in the Vic Champs & return to either online play or limit play at Crown for a while.

Well, well done in any case!

One thing I learnt from watching tv poker is that the really good players don't always make it to the final table. The element of luck can work against the very best players as much as it can work against the patsies.

I wish you well in your future poker excursions! (I wonder if GM Holden will ever sponser a Holdem tournament! ;) ),
