Re: Glasgow, Scotland Poker Thread

Might play the turbo 2morro night at the Alea then join a cash game after, is there a 0.5/1 game running at the riverboat ? better to play cash at alea of riverboat ? not rolled very well for the stakes of live cash but feel like taking a little shot.

Last time I went to the Riverboat it was a Wednesday night and it was just the usual 200NL game that was on. I don't know if they actually do a 100NL game on other days though. From past experience, there's likely to be more action at the Alea though.

I usually stick to the deeper tournys, namely the weekend ones, although the add on tournys are not that bad. So many play really bad and make huge mistakes with big stacks, then try to play tight when they start getting short late on instead of making standard short stack moves.
I remember this and I am pretty sure it was me who you talked to... Donking away your chips like there was no tomorrow...

Re: Glasgow, Scotland Poker Thread

I doubt it was me. I've only really had one brutal night playing cash there where it was rivered flush > set all in on flop, top 2 < flopped set.

Must have been tourny then Go through spells of playing like a retard admittedly. I'll pm a pic Then you can tell me my retard plays

Re: Glasgow, Scotland Poker Thread

Do games run all the time or just towards the end of the week heading up to the weekend? What were you playing 1/2? was there more than one table and what time mate?

Re: Glasgow, Scotland Poker Thread

Every night usually - there's been one every time I've been anyway. Yeah it was 1/2 NLHE - there was only one table open with a short waiting list but I've been before when there was 2 tables and a waiting list to get on them. There will definately be a lot more action on a weekend.

I ended up going quite late (maybe arrived just before 11pm so everything was well underway) as I was playing a tournament at the Maybury in Edinburgh beforehand. Their tourneys start registration at 7 and then play starts at half 8 so I imagine there would be a cash game kicking off around then - especially if there's no rake.

For Summer, the Alea's actually running cash games without any rake being taken 7-10pm Mondays-Fridays. They also have a jackpot thing running until Sunday where the highest ranked hand, using both hole cards, wins 1750 (i think). Prizes for 2nd and 3rd as well.

On Wednesday, quad jacks were 1st and I'm currently joint 2nd with quad 6s (K kicker but I don't know the other guy's kicker). Think 2nd was paying about 800. So hopefully I get a phone call on Monday morning about winning some more money

Re: Glasgow, Scotland Poker Thread

Does anyone know if the Alea manages to get a game running for their rake free times at 7-10pm? Would obviously like to play when there's no rake but don't want to travel through to Glasgow and have to wait for hours if there's no game running.

Very rarely. The Tournaments run at this time so everyone is playing them, and it takes a while to get enough people to go up and play cash.

Re: Glasgow, Scotland

Hi all

I'm moving to Glasgow (from far away) for 5 months in feb and looking to play professionally to save for travelling round the world. Are there daily 200nl games running in the city? Also, are there ever 500nl games anywhere?

Thanks
