Joe Slap Head Winter hammers it out

Nick’s killing spree pays dividends

Our November 11 event saw 19 players, five new, with an influx from the University of Sussex Poker Club. Nick Jeffery came top, winning £76, heads up verses Joe Winter, whose £57 winnings made him the top cash winner this season at £190, third Alex KT and fourth Raul Sasaran. On his route to victory, Nick executed ten opponents.

Care in the community & Young Gun winner

Raul Sasauran won our 19 player tournament on November 4, 2019, after coming back from a chip deficit in the heads up to beat Jonno Vulture Cook. In third, cashing for the second week running was Steve Powell and in fourth Dez Fry. Wnnings were £76, £57, £38 and £19 respectively. The table draw in the evening produced an interesting battle on table one, giving the Tournament Director plenty of headaches in keeping the game moving, reminding of blinds, shuffling, sorting pots and the like.

Hallowe’en games and prize pumpkins

First time player Steve Powell won our Hallowe’en themed tournament on October 28. Twenty one runners provided a £210 pot, which first place took £84, second place Joe Winter £63, third place Perivale Tony£42 and Nick Jeffery fourth and £21. ‘Twas a cracker of pumpkins, lollipops, jelly fangs and other tat provided by Poundland.

It was hardly a premium hand, but The Hammer (72) was sufficient for Joe Winter to rule our November 18 tournament and take home £76 for his troubles after the blinds reached 30k/60k. The heads up was a fairly long stint between Sandie Cresdee and Slap Head, with Joe eating into Sandie’s chip dominance, after being close to being busted a few hands before. Sandie won £57, Carol Burtenshaw, £38 for third and Steve Powell £19 for fourth. Our bubble was Mike Burtenshaw.

Three new players again tonight gave great feedback.
