IT WAS FUN BUT THIS IS THE END OF MY ERA AS YOUR MAILOUT AUTHOR!

Hello lovely Poker People,

If you hate good byes then this is where you stop reading hahaha. On a serious note, this is my last mailout this year and probably ever because we now have a communications officer. But don't worry, I am going nowhere. I love y'all and the society too much to leave you all alone after just a year together lol. 

Well, read below for a round-up of the year as it unfolded at Poker Society.

E-mail sent by Member 131cd2e, Wednesday, 19th March 2014 @ 2:37pm

18TH TOURNAMENT, AGM 2014 & INTER-SOCIETIES DODGEBALL COMPETITION

E-mail sent by Member 131cd2e, Tuesday, 11th March 2014 @ 7:03pm

Hello Poker People,

I hope you are all having a good week. Weather-wise it has been great but considering the time of the year, I am sure you are all putting in the extra studies for the summer exams. We are coming to the end of term which means this is one of the last mailouts I will be sending but it makes it one of the most important so read this carefully.

UCL vs Imperial College (16th Tournament)

E-mail sent by Member 131cd2e, Tuesday, 18th February 2014 @ 1:45pm

Hello Poker people,

I hope you are all having an amazing and chilled reading week. Those that had ICAs, hope you aced them. 

Well, as you already know by now, we don't do reading week at PokerSoc so we are on this weekend for our 16th Tournament. 

League tables lie but poker don't so this weekend we have the chance to shut some Imperial students up on the poker tables. It's UCL PokerSoc vs Imperial PokerSoc. Let's be down in large numbers (especially because turnouts at tournaments this term has been a bit disappointing) and use home ground to our advantage. 

TOURNAMENT DETAILS
We will play a standard £5 tournament with them but both societies will be putting up some extra prizes for the best performers from each university (prizes to be decided)!

I hope to see a lot of you there from both universities to REPRESENT!

We want to start the tournament promptly at 1pm so anybody registering by then will receive an extra $1000 chips!

Buy-in: £5 (bring change/fivers)
Rebuys: Unlimited for the first 4 blind levels (£5 = 5000 chips)
Addons: 1 allowed per person if you fall below 2000 chips (£5 = 5000 orange chip)

Location: NORTH CLOISTERS in UCL

Time:1pm
Date: 23rd February 2014

Cash games: As always 5p/10p cash games will be running on the side - for more information on how cash games work please ask any committee member.

15th Tournament of the Year (Bounty)

E-mail sent by Member 131cd2e, Friday, 14th February 2014 @ 2:46pm

Hello Poker Players,

This Sunday, 16th February, 2014 we will have our 15th tournament of the year. It is still the usual £5 but only £4 goes to the main prizepool and the £1 goes into the bounty prizepool. As a result, this weekend you win an instant £1 for anyone that you knock out (if a knocked out player rebuys you can't win their £1 again by knocking them out). Full details below:

Buy-in: £4+1 (bring change/fivers)
Rebuys: Unlimited for the first 4 blind levels (£5 = 5000... chips)
Addons: 1 allowed per person if you fall below 2000 chips (£5 = 5000 orange chip)

Location: South CLOISTERS
Time: 1pm (extra $1000 chips for everyone there before or at 1pm so do not be late)

Membership: Please buy membership before this Sunday. We will be ticking people off a members list as you buy-in, if you are not a member you can still play but will have to pay an extra £2!

Cash games: As always 5p/10p cash games will be running on the side - for more information on how cash games work please ask any committee member.

E-mail sent by Member 131cd2e, Tuesday, 14th January 2014 @ 9:06pm

Happy New Year and Welcome back Poker players. I hope you all had an amazing break but are still happy to be back hahaha.

FINAL TOURNAMENT OF THE YEAR!

E-mail sent by Member 131cd2e, Wednesday, 11th December 2013 @ 5:05pm

Hello lovely Poker People,


I know it's been a while. Well, it's been a weeke but a weekend without poker felt longer haha. The good news is, the term is coming to an end and Christmas is coming. The even better news is......there's Poker this weekend. Yes!!! Our last tournament of the term and 10th of the year so far will be held this Sunday, 15th December in the Lower Refectory.

Please come down and let's wrap the term up on a high. The tournament structure is the usual £5 buy-in for $5k chips with unlimited rebuys for the first 4 blinds. Time is the usual 1pm but the venue is NOT the usual North Cloisters. We are in the Lower Refectory this weekend. WHERE IS THE LOWER REFECTORY? It is where most of you have lunch. To get there from the Main Library, walk past the JBR and you will see a set of stairs on your left. Go down to the bottom of the stairs and two double doors will lead you outside. Keep walking ahead and the Lower Refectory will be on your left. You can't miss it! 

See you all this Sunday and for those flying out before that, safe flight and catch you all next term. Enjoy the rest of the week.

Collins

 

NO TOURNAMENT THIS WEEKEND!!!!

E-mail sent by Member 131cd2e, Thursday, 5th December 2013 @ 8:09pm

Dear Members of Poker Society,

Firstly, I would like to apologise for sending out the weekly e-mail this late.

The major news in this e-mail is that there is NO TOURNAMENT this Sunday, 8th December. I guess you all deserve a weekend off especially those preparing for exams and ICAs next week. We will however be back on Sunday 15th December for the last tournament of the term. This will be an opportunity for those of you that have not made it into the top 9 of our leaderboard yet to earn some few points and get in there for the £100 freeroll.

The End of Term freeroll will instead take place during the first weekend of next term. We will send out details and e-mail reminders to the qualifiers in due time.

Finally, the date for the UKSPC has been set for the 9th to the 13th of April 2014 so anyone interested could start clearing their schedules for that period. It will be during end of term so you won't have to skip any lectures. I will send out more details once I get them.
