Also chiming in with up to £50k pounds for sale pre EPT, xe+5% for anything up to £10k, can go slightly lower for more than that. Prefer to deal in apublic place such as the hilton.

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

i had a deal to swap online for pounds with someone but i am having trouble getting in contact with him...so if he doesn't contact me soon, i'll just go with someone else.

what i am looking for: 10,000-12,000 pounds

what i have: Tilt, Stars, UB

I am willing to pay 5% vig on tilt and stars, and 6% vig if u can take a lot of ub. pm me if u are avail TODAY as i need to buy into the main event for tomorrrow..thanks. While i do not have a lot of posts on 2p2, i am a mod on p5's and well known among the online high stakes mtt community..can easily provide references.

Pretty much just a warning and confiscation if it's just an amount suitable for personal use.

Tell your "friend" to be careful bringing through customs though, if they find a decent quantity it will be trouble.

Its really a kind of a grey area atm. This ^^ was the law a few years ago, but they reclassified to so you can actually get jail time for personal use, but no-one does.

Basically if you're caught don't be a dick to the policeman about it.

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

Hi All,

With the WSOPE 10K Heads Up getting 103 players, I want to advise everyone to register early if they plan to play the 5K HU at EPT London. We have 64 spots and that is a hard cap. We can't finish in two days with 128 and Day 3 would then be Day 1B of the Main Event, so we won't be going beyond 64.

For the €5K Heads Up at EPT Monte Carlo, we sold out all 64 spots on the Pokerstars Client 3 hours before live registration opened at the Venue. We had a number of players who ended up disappointed and weren't able to get in.

Please register in advance if you don't want to be locked out!

Cheers,

Neil

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

Hi All,

There have been a number of questions about the £100 + £10 + £10 Charity Event next weekend at EPT London so I wanted to provide a quick explanation.

1. This is a “Re Entry” Event, not a Re Buy Event. The difference is, in a rebuy event, you simply hand the dealer or floor person another buyin when you bust, the dealer gives you another stack and you stay in your seat and keep playing. For a “Re Entry” Event, once you bust, you must get up, go to the registration desk, buy in again and you will be given an entirely new seat with a fresh stack.

2. The INITIAL buy in is £100 + £10 + £10 with £10 going to charity. All of the “Re Entries’” are £100 + £10 with the £10 going to charity. There is no admin fee on the “Re Entries” for Day 1A or Day 1B. There is an Admin Fee on your INITIAL entry on Day 1A and Day 1B.

3. There will be eight levels of late registration. Players can register until the start of Level Nine. The levels are 25 minutes long.

4. You may “Re Enter” as many times as you like on either day 1 until the start of Level Nine. The only players prohibited from playing on Day 1B are all players who cashed on Day 1A. Once you have cashed this Event, even if you were eliminated after your cash, your tournament is completed.

5. The structure is available at http://www.europeanpokertour.com/tou...events/london/

6. Each Day 1 will play down to the final two tables (16 players) and those players will return for Day 2.

7. Each Day 1 will pay 10% of its field down to 16 players.

Example -

a. Day 1A – 496 players, Day 1B – 705 players.
b. 10% rounded in 8 handed tables = Day 1A pays 48 and Day 1B pays 72
c. Day 1A – from 48 to 17 will be paid X, Y and Z
d. Day 1B – from 72 to 17 will be paid X, Y and Z
e. Day 2 – 16 players from 1A and 16 players from 1B return, all in the money and play down to a single winner
f. Day 2 – Play begins at the earliest level between 1A and 1B. If 1A stops on Level 15 and 1B stops on Level 18, play resumes at Level 15 time from Day 1A.

Any other questions, please let me know.

Cheers,

Neil

just send stars a mail and tell them to upgrade the transfer limits from $ to pounds that should work, or thats what I did when I had the problem changing $ into €.
