Anyone found to be listed as registered for the current tournament without having registered with OLBG first will be removed from the tournament immediately

Distribution of the password to non OLBG members is not allowed and will effect your ability to join future tournaments.


I must demand that you post your Ladbrokes Poker username on the latest thread in the OLBG Poker Nights Forum before buying into your first tournament.

I cannot stress this enough. Failure to comply with this reasonable request will effect your ability to join future tournaments.

Hello, to the OLBG community. Well done to Gutshot, our new champion who took home $32.50, 2nd place went to Aces Jones recieving $19.50 and 3rd place went to Zagreb paying $13.

51-150 people = 1st-10th
151-200 people = 1st-20th


To join in you must first have a real money Ladbrokes account. It's very easy to set up:

All I would ask:

My lord do I feel fat this morning! My belly is still swollen with Woodybrau and I just could'nt stop eating the buffet at Interceptor, if you really are what you eat, this morning I feel like a pork scratching wrapped in parma ham and dipped in humous.

Congrats to Gutshot for demolishing the field last night. When it got down to the final table it was looking like a repeat of the Aces Jones show, with AJ knocking out superheroes two at a time, but Gutshot had other plans. He stole the show when it got down to the last 4 or 5, it's this sort of form that I remember most about Gutshot last season, he's got what it takes to beat our best, which, over the last 20 months has proven no mean feat. Top notch pokering Gutshot. :cool:

Aces Jones showed he's no pushover with yet another fine performance, it's hard to keep a good man down and he earned his money last night for sure. Heads up lasted 10 hands, of which flops 3 were seen, the last of which saw Gutshots AJ hold up against AJ's KQ, ooooh the irony! Nevertheless is was a sparkling performance, job well done AJ. :win:

Zagreb took the remainder of the spoils with a typical Zaggy performance, it was another fine effort from this superhero and fully deserving of his share of the spoils. He represents OLBGs vintage with flair and style, it's only a matter of time before the queen sends him a knighthood in my humblest. Nicely done Zaggy. :win:

Many thanks to all who took part in the main event and after party
