    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.

    Just awaiting the creation of accounts from the poker manager for @UrABawBag2 @uistdon & @Jimbo70 and we will be good to go.
    Make that 7 bb. Seems a bit immoral me playing for the package. I know I could forfeit it but I am too stingy to donate a tenner :p

    if you've still to create an account don't forget to put in your casino membership number for a free 20. I had an issue as my old Grosvenor number wasn't recognised, so I joined the Grosvenor casinos (again) on line with some help from a receptionist, got my new membership number and registered for on line account (I couldn't add my number in registration, but was promised it would be added and bonus deposited when my account were set up, which it was)
    now , once you've your 20 in your account, you need to bet it on the grosvenorcasino.com site and once you've bet your 20 only then can you transfer your winning over to your poker account
    4x 5 bets in roulette on 1st 1/3 board won me 45 for my 20, already transferred over to poker account, and waiting now for Gerry's satalite
    The secret is keeping your head when all around are loosing theirs

    Had my last go of trying to qualify in those sats. I always hated ipoker at the best of times and only deposited to play those sats. The structure is so bad and it really is v much of a lottery with a shove/fold game getting to most folk pretty soon. Start with 6k stack but after 1 hr the blinds are 25/500. Tonight I had about 9k which was ok in relation to others but still only 15x or so.

    When I got reraised all in by 22 holding QQ the river 2 made my mind up lol

    Ahhhh that's a shame Gerry. Can't believe you didn't get a seat after the final table qualifiers you were getting to. Of course, aas you say by the end it's really push/fold and not too much poker.

    Put you down for playing the bonusbanter game now :) I think everyone would agree it would be great for you to play and again maybe end up with even more in the banter pot.

    That's not neccessary BB. I am merely saying I have had it with those sats and ipoker full stop

    It seems as though therte are some really bad issues which for some reason they can't seem to create a manually added account for 2 of our players. This is slowing down our game creation to play for the package.

    The best alternative is for us to create a private game for only the people mentioned in this thread on a site such as pokerstars (which we all should have I am sure)


    Sorry about the delay guys, it's getting close to the event and Grosvener appear to be quite helpless in an online capacity due to their problems with their software.

    I will keep you informed over the next day or two while I work out the best way forward.

    Sorry to hear of the problems. The package is a great idea, so hope it can get worked out in time, just sorry I can't play for such an amazing prize!

    I think everyone will have Stars mate. No need for anyone to drop out, as there are 2 of you anyway and it wouldn't be fair at all just because of a sites issues.

    Will get us sorted and someone will end up winning this damn main event !!!!

    Glad to hear this will be done soon. I am 90% sure I will be going to the event to play too but obv I want to wait and see who the winner is so I can judge them on my obnoxious company scale before committing..............

    As a thought, I believe that there are 3 day 1's for the event can you confirm this BB? If this is the case it would really make most sense for the winner to play the 3rd flight which I think is Saturday evening so as to minimal travel costs if they make day 2

    The Saturday is the only likely day that I can go anyway if that matters

    It's fine mate, @hendy27 has already said he isn't going :)


    Yeh just looking at the structure, it does appear to be 3 starting flights with a rebuy available during each flight, but I would not think many would rebuy at this cost ?

    Playing the 3rd flight is the obvious choice I agree mate.

    Can you post a link to where you are getting the details for the 25/25 game Billy as I seem to have misplaced it and I am getting lost trying to find it on the net now. I just want to confirm it is indeed Saturday night for flight 3 and if that is the case I should like to see how to buy in ahead of time

    Direct buy-ins are dead easy, and can be done quickly and simply through your Grosvenor Poker client. Select the event you wish to buy directly into, and then choose "direct buy in". That's all there is to it!
