    Default Win a Bonusbanter Poker Main Event Package

    As you will know, our very own BonusBanter member Gerry @TheGatherer Kane was in Marbella for the GSOP Poker main event. With some great play Gerry made it to the final table for a brilliant 7th place finish and a nice cash.

    As a thank you to bonusbanter members for railing him during our live updates and sending him luck, he has donated 500 CASH of his winnings, to go towards sending another player to a main event in which he also hopes to play later in the year.




    So, This year we will be sending one lucky BonusBanter member to a live UK Main Event to play some of the best players in Europe.

    We are currently working on choosing a large event and will update once we have full details.

    The Package will include one paid entry to the main event PLUS expenses for travelling and/or hotel for your stay.

    Default Re: Win a Bonusbanter Poker Main Event Package

    Just to note that the qualifier we will play will be restricted to members of the site who meet a few short criteria. This has been agreed by the bonusbanter admins and also by Gerry himself as a reward for members who took a keen interest in his play in Marbella and also for members who take the time to rail people on the site or are actively posting regularly in the forums and/or playing our private leagues/poker tournaments which we regularly hold.

    At the moment we have a list of 14 members who will qualify to play for the BonusBanter Live Event package.

    The Euros have been cashed in and we have a starting pot of 375

    We have shortlisted a couple of events in August/September time and will aim to send someone to one of those events.

    The shortlist of players who will be invited to play for the package is below :

    bbtipster
    sef
    evilbow
    gatherer
    scottieboy
    jimbo
    uistdon
    negreanu
    sirpip
    holtender
    Urabawbag
    hendy
    tomtom



    The live event will be to play in the Grosvenor 25/25 Series in Edinburgh on August 8-10th 2014. If you haven't got a Grosvenor poker account then I would suggest clicking the banner below and setting up an account so you can play :



    Grosvenor Poker's 25/25 Series are poker tournaments held in Grosvenor Casinos across the UK. Every player starts with 25,000 chips, and every tournament has an unconditional guarantee of 25,000. Their latest event in Leeds had 262 players and over 40,000 in prizemonies so it's a nice event to play in.

    You can see our Grosvenor Poker Review


    The buy-in for the event is 220 plus an extra 5 gets 5000 bonus chips so the total entry is 225. That leaves 150 for the player who is going for expenses. Now, that is fine for us in Scotland but a few from further afield may be happy to have a bit more.

    I would suggest that rather than a straight freeroll, we make the tournament a small buy-in of 5 - 10 with the winner taking all winnings towards expenses for his hotel, food, drink and of course travel expenses. As an extra anyone who deposits on Grosvenor are getting a 5.50 token to a feeder for GUKPT so you wont really be losing out either. There are only 14 of us invited to the game and there may be one or 2 who can't make it so we should have around an extra 100-140 in the kitty for the winner of the main event package.

    If your names on the list please post with your thoughts.

    Now, as Gerry has been very generous in donating this money I think it is right and proper that whoever wins the package should also be obliged to donate 33% of any winnings from the main event to fund the nest banter tournament to send another player/players to a live event. We think this is only fair and with around 10-15000 for the event winner that will still be a massive payday for whoever is playing.


    I have yet to schedule the exclusive tournament for us to play but need questions answered by all players in the above list before I schedule it. Time is of the essence so please post thoughts. If you can't make Edinburgh in August then please post saying so. Any questions, fire away.

    Download Grosvenor on the banner below and check it out. It's on iPoker and you all should be familiar with the software anyway.

    200% Bonus up to 100 + 5.50 Token

    Brilliant gesture by Gerry and happy to pay an entry to pay for the winners expenses. Donation to future pot is fair I would say. Good Luck picking a date that suits everyone Could maybe put a list of dates on a spreadsheet and any date that gets a full set of ticks is it.

    If you take account of the fact that Billy and myself won't be taking the seat and I doubt that Iain can go along with prob 1 other drop out then it is really a 1 table sit n go for the prize so a decent chance for all.

    Up to you mate, just thought a cpl of the buy ins could maybe get lead to another couple of bodies trying to join folk at the ME with still first place getting double the buy in, which is unheard of in sats at the best of times. lol. Just a suggestion mate you have the final say obv.

    I think if we all made a concerted effort we can all get to the main event via the pretty cheap satellites. I know Gerry will be doing it that way and I think Raymie is going to try his hardest via the sats if he doesn't win this package. Should be a few Banter players their regardless.
