poker

the time has come, the UK needs a generic set of poker rules. up and down the country, people get into rucks, because one casino plays one way, and next door its the opposite. poker is big business these days, its grown out of all proportion in the last 5 years.

i was talking to some of the old school, they explained, in the not to distant past, they had to travel 50 miles for a £10 rebuy on the Tuesday, then Wednesdays game was 30 miles away, and so on. we are lucky, the poker explosion accommodates our every wimb. they had to get six in a car, and set off at 6pm to reach their destination, they were lucky to find a game seven nights a week. but that was then, and this is now. each week, we can play any stake, within a 10/20 mile radius, casinos love the poker players. we even have a dedicated poker only venue, unheard of 10 years ago

i have had the pleasure of playing poker under the watchful eye, of in my opinion, the best card room manager in the uk(db) and recall, his greatest asset was common sense, and fairness i remember. any disputes were quickly put to bed, without causing a ripple in the water. Blackpool lost a legend when he left, and have not yet found a replacement
