Liverpool 1 - 3 Aston Villa

Quality…….. ;-)

Went to the Ricoh Arena at the Coventry football ground last night as G casino’s have taken it over from the isle of Capri and they were having a £15 rebuy with 15 seats guaranteed into the £330 main event this Saturday for the GUKPT Summer series

Approx 50 runners turned up generating a pot of just over £3300 so the Casino had to put in around £1500

I bust out with around 24 runners left

I also bumped into Dave Griffiths from Poker Tour Radio who informs me that they will be back for next months DTD £300 event and they are looking at a new sponsor that will give them funding for bigger projects, Dave was still in the mix when I left so hopefully he won a seat.

This Venue has got to be one of the best and biggest venues in the uk, the card room only has around 12 tables but take it from me you can quite easy get another 40 tables around the floor if they needed to.

Having travelled down the M6 Toll road to avoid spaghetti junction, as I know there are road works on the southbound section from my house, I arrive at the casino some 35 minutes later.

Paul Davies the ex manager of Grosvenor Junction 10 is now the manager of this venue and I imagine that he will soon be getting some games arranged on a regular basis and a proper card room schedule the I can see myself travelling over here a lot more often

Hoping the weather turns better for the aworldofpoker golf and poker day later this week, went to get a round in yesterday but had to stop after 9 holes as I was soaked through.
