    Imagine making a selfless key worker feel guilty for winning something from a promo.

    @waller02 you should be utterly ashamed of yourself.

    Ive no excuses.

    Know I can't play on phone though lol!

    I did think might be able to swap the seat for something else, but promise ill not enter it again and after all it was a raffle based on points accrued. Good luck to all.

    It is a slow structure. You should be able to play this at some stage.
    Good luck.

    Don't apologise and don't worry about it - I didn't get a ticket but I will be playing.

    Poker players saying they wouldn't enter a free comp in case they couldn't claim the prize are either a) not telling the whole truth or b) unlike any poker player I've ever met. I've seen people do ridiculous stuff for free ****.

    I was sat with @thefall with a couple of tables to go in a £22 that he had accidentally bought into thinking it was a £2. He was delighted to have cashed and was thoroughly charming.

    It's a pretty deep structure, might be worth checking in on it every couple of hours and just shoving a couple of hands to see if you can double up a couple of times and make day 2.

    If you are a nurse in these times regardless of specialism you deserve any little boost to the morale. If that's a free ticket that you can't use then so be it.

    Reminds me of the old days when the Sunday Million was a $215 and it started 2am here due to the US people. I bought in with VPPs as I did most weeks and preregged as I always did. Went to bed early evening and set my alarm for 1am so I could get ready. Fell asleep, woke up and the sun is out. Clocks went forward on the stroke of 1am so my alarm didn't go off.

    Run down stairs and had blinded out. Genius.

    Good luck hope you win big in something down the road.

    (Obviously it should have been me who got it instead but saying that would get in the way of my virtue signalling.)

    Thanks for the positive comments and the negative well its only a game dudes!

    Im still a raffle winner after all ( who said I couldn't win one lol ) thank you to those who have been kind.

    I think the 200 points will push me over the five pound barrier for the week too so not all bad!
    So if your sat at 'my' table tonight be careful how you pinch my blinds lol!

    Good Luck All.

    I'm a key worker and if I was at work all weekend then I wouldn't have entered a promo to win a seat to a tournament that I can't even play. It just makes no sense that's all. It's like buying a ticket to a football match that you can't go to.

    Why should I be ashamed for telling it how it is? Are you ashamed about being regarded as the biggest moaning child on the forum?

    Unfortunately @thefall this forum is full of toxic clique members. You enter a promo, get lucky enough to win a seat, ask a innocent, genuine question not knowing you won't be able to transfer the seat into 4x £55 tickets, get negative comments and they'll most likely be taking the pi** out of you in their discord as well.

    Being a bounty hunter tournament, and IF you can manage to find a way to get on for just a few minutes, I definitely think that the shove all in a bunch of hands option is the way to go.

    You might pick up a bounty, and if you're lucky enough to double up a couple of times you're all set for day two.

    Good luck.

    Look, all I did was question why someone would enter a promo for something that they can't play. That's all. If you scroll through the thread you will see that I said hopefully he can try to play at least some of it on his phone or whatever.

    Toxic?! Give it a rest, slight overreaction. Some of you are carrying on as if I'd slept with his wife or something.

    Well that's opened a can of worms, did you sleep with his wife?

    I stand by my comment. All you clique members spend all day slagging people off in your discord but when someone says something negative about you, you get butt hurt.

    If you cant handle the heat stay out of the kitchen.

    @hanlan123 the discord is open to the public, it's not a hidden away thing, clearly you aren't in there because you'd know you're talking out your backside, everyone banters everyone in there, usually for there poker abilities as we try and shred a piece of joy out of the **** days we currently live in. However on the whole it's a fantastic spirit in there with lots of wishes, rails and general chit chatter about all sorts including having someone to talk to when times are getting particularly hard as I have reached out to more than one person in there in recent times. There are probably 50-100 active members in the discord now and it gets bigger and better everyday and long may that continue, stop whinging about it and come and have a look for yourself if your that concerned.
    As for what waller said he wasn't nasty, he put his point across and his views on the matter which he's entitled too and left it there, the only one creating an issue about it now is yourself throwing out the term "toxic" directed at the biggest softy I have come across on the site.

    Have a good afternoon

    @waller02 is pretty toxic IMHO. He said he had more muscle than me!

    Once again, I stand by my comments. As a mere observer it seems whenever someone questions, goes against, or disagrees with a member of the clique that person is automatically in the wrong. You'll all talk about it on discord, calling them 'see you next Tuesday' then one by one will pitch in on the forum defending your fellow clique member. The hypocrisy is brilliant, when waller puts across his point he's more than entitled to do so, as you put, but when Greg puts across his point (which he's more than entitled to do isn't he?) He's automatically in the wrong it seems. I'm sure I'll be labelled a see you next Tuesday just for posting this...

    Let's just put this to bed now shall we and agree to disagree.

    For the record, not once have I suggested that @thefall shouldn't have his seat, in fact my exact words were he won it fair and square. I hope he does get chance to play at some point in the evening and wish him the best of luck. If he doesn't get chance to play it then so be it.

    Always said @waller02 was a nasty piece of work. This Discord thing sounds very toxic.

    Best Wishes
