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 screen name 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 me, our new champion who took home $35, 2nd place went to Gutshot recieving $21 and 3rd place went to Veedub paying $14.

Thursdays format:

This is determined by how many people enter:

1-30 people = 1st-3rd share money
31-50 people = 1st-5th
51-150 people = 1st-10th
151-200 people = 1st-20th


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

Just click here - Ladbrokes
Click the "Poker" button and then click on the "Download Now" button

All I would ask:

Once you buy in, post a reply on this thread stating your Ladbrokes Poker name.
I will collect them up, and add them to the "OLBG List of Players" thread.

14 superheroes donated their bank holiday to support the cause, it rained mostly but that did'nt stop the sunshine that is the main event from warming our souls.

I managed to snag another main event trophy for the mantlepiece, it was a hard slog, especially the final 5 players, I got decent hands in good spots which allowed me to keep my head above water, albeit still swimming with the sharks!

Gutshot, as always, was a worth heads up opponent, he continued to put pressure on me and I got lucky in a couple of hands, my good hands stood up and that was the difference between yours truly and Gutsy on the night. Superb display Gutsy :cool:

I must say, I got disconnected for a minute or two during heads up play and I had virtually the same sized chipstack (if not a shade more) upon my return. Not every poker crew would slowplay in such a situation, but credit where credit is due, Gutsy was a proper gent and a credit to his crew :nap:

Veedub scooped the remainder of the spoils with a quality effort, he may still be a victory away from his green jacket, but with performances like that, it certainly is only a matter of time. Cream always rises to the top! :win:

Many thanks to all who played in the main event and after party :kiss:

The OLBG Poker leaderboard has been updated

Thursdays tournament is open for registration, support the cause! :D
