Amsterdam is pretty great for grinding. How long do you have between? If it's not long perhaps you should go somewhere you can just take the eurostar to london from (about 6 hours from amsterdam i think) so you don't have to deal with flying. If you want to spoil yourself silly with food, Paris is always a great option (might need a vpn though). Otherwise, just pick a city, any city and go.

i realize he said he wanted something else, i just thought it would be relevant to mention that i thought amsterdam was a great choice for that particular activity.

I want to play the WPT High Roller. I'm flying to London overnight tonight and need 15k pounds. I can send Stars or FTP. Let me know ASAP if you can do this. Thanks.

Re: ***Official month of ridiculousness in London thread***

Still have a seat to the English Poker Open (3500+300 GBP) that I am selling for $3400 USD. Only selling today and tomorrow I'm going to grab a flight to London if I can't sell it for that ridiculous price.

With the current exchange rate the tourney is worth > $5400+400 with nothing additional held from the prize pool (and a potential overlay beyond that as the tourney has $1 million guaranteed).

Re: ***Official month of ridiculousness in London thread***

While I'm still open to selling the EPO-London seat mentioned above, I want to also offer this to any budding MTTcers in London that could use the freeroll in a $5400+450/3500+300GBP event and are already in the UK: I am looking to stake someone in the Main Event (as a one-time deal, no markup required). Obviously, the best combination of results/deal will win out. Need to sort this out within the next 24 hours however as the deadline to transfer seats is September 3rd (Friday).

Please PM me with any relevant stats/cashes if interested. Thanks!

I'll be heading to WSOPE for work and would love to stay a few extra days for vacation while EPT London is going on. Does anyone want to split a room for the first few days of the main event? PM me.

Please disregard this post, as I have ended up selling the seat to another twoplustwoer.

That seems like too much for me although having some ppl I know on the same flight as me would be a plus.
flying out the 22nd at 7:30pm on virgin atlantic from jfk

Just booked that flight! Great to know someone on it. Love that Virgin Atlantic has monitors in every seat as well.

sweet hopefully i will join you now, haha. for some reason borgata told me my account said "prohibited from gaming" so assuming i can get that sorted (i have NO idea why, i've only donated money to their pit afaik), i will then switch my flight to this one. currently have a flight a few days earlier but just decided to play the B, if they let me! hopefully see you there!

Re: ***Official month of ridiculousness in London thread***

just a reminder to anyone grinding at the International, whilst it is an awesome place to grind Sundays etc, due to the high volume of players playing on the same IP, it's very likely that Stars will flag you up and freeze your transactions until you contact them
