£20 No Limit Hold Em Tournament raising money for Cancer Research

  • May 6, 2013 · 1:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

1pm start. Registration opens from 12:00 onward.

This special game will be hosted at Snooker City under the Broadwalk Shopping Centre in Knowle with your TD Thomas Pancake (aka John)

The game is NLHE with a buyin of £20.

12 players minimum/48 players maximum.

This game is not a leaderboard event. This game is a special game I will be running to raise money for Cancer Research following on from the two successful games I ran last year raising money for Macmillan Cancer Support after the death of a friend of mine.

As such £10 from every £20 paid to enter will be given to charity and the rest will be put in the prize pool. Similarly half of every rebuy will be donated to the charity and half will go into the prize pool. Last year we raised £380, I would like to get something approaching that figure this year too if possible.

The winner will also receive a trophy I have ordered, "The Michael Jefferies Memorial Trophy"

IMPORTANT - The game is also being advertised through my Bristol Poker League website, Facebook, Twitter etc. so not everyone will be signed up as a "yes" on here.

If it fills up to the maximum 48 you will NOT be guaranteed a seat by registering here. You will need to turn up and register early enough on the day to play. I will not be able to register all the people outside of meetup who wish to play so the number here is simply a guide.

Starting stack will depend on the number of runners as follows:-
8 - 32 runners, starting stack = 10k

33 - 48 runners, starting stack = 8k

Players Choice Rebuy Option: There is a choice between a full stack rebuy for £20 OR a half stack rebuy for £10, but this will only be available if you go bust within the first four levels of play.

The draw for seats will be promptly at 12.55pm, announcements will be made, then "shuffle up & deal" at  1pm sharp. If you're running late for whatever reason (traffic, whatever), make sure you call or text  You can confirm your registration by phone up to 12.55 pm. We will allocate you a seat and blinds will be posted off until your arrival.

IMPORTANT BIT! If you have not registered and paid at the venue by 12.55 pm, or confirmed your registration by text or phone by 12.55 pm any alternates/reserves waiting for a seat will be dealt in the place of no shows.

Blind Structure (20 minute levels throughout)










Break (Chip up 25's)





Break (Chip up 100s)




4000/8000 CAP

Payouts/Donation will be announced when rebuys are calculated and announced after first break.

Final table deals must be agreed by all.

Anyone wishing to set up/play in a cash game on the side will be obliged to donate £2 to the charity before sitting down.

This venue serves it's own food and drink so please do not consume your own or it will be highly embarrassing (for you) when I throw you out if I see you eating/drinking anything not bought on site. No refunds will be given to anyone ejected from the game.
