for those who havent been, a shot of liquor other there is smaller than over here, so buy doubles (double jack and coke, instead of just a jack and coke)!

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

Sorry if this has already been asked I went through most of the thread but could have missed it.

My understanding is that barclays is connected to bank of america and I can go to barclays with my BOA debit card in order to get cash while in london. Has anyone used this method before and if so has it been a struggle to get large amounts of cash out.

Other thing is I saw for wsope registration by wire is an option.

Quote:
Please note: Transfer must state name of remitter (who is sending the funds)
Transfer must state name of beneficiary (who the funds are for).
Funds transferred should belong to the beneficiary, and must come from their personal account, in the absence of this confirmation the player may be asked to sign an indemnity.
Third-Party payments will only be accepted if approved by corporate sponsorship and licensing. Unless approved, Player Name must match remitter name.
International Wires: Please be aware that all transaction fees are the responsibility of the sender. This includes all fees charged by correspondent banks. Wires received with fees deducted from the buy-in amount will require an additional deposit to complete registration. We will make one attempt to contact the remitter via email to notify of payment shortage. Pre-Registration payments that are short will not be confirmed until complete payment has been received.
Payment is a deposit only. You must complete registration at The Casino at The Empire, Leicester Square, London for the events as set forth in the rules available at www.worldseriesofpoker.com. Your

Does this mean that if i'm trying to wire in buyins for 3 or 4 people it might be an issue or can I wire any amount I want to the casino and it will be there waiting for me and i can take it out for buyins other then my own once there.

Sent them an email inquiring but i'm pretty new to all this and headed to europe really soon so need to get this done asap. Thanks in advance to anyone who gives me helpful replies

Booking flights.

If i'm at 11.30am at luton, and want to play EPT 1K event at 16, does that leaves me enough time to transfer, stop at hotel and make the proper registrations ?

Yes. Luton's not that far from London. 4 1/2 hours is fine.

Hi All,

Agus - #182 - Step G's are now running in the Euro Client. There will be no Step 6 in the USD Client for EPT London. Rather than split the pool between both currencies we focused on the Euro since we already have PokerStars.FR Euro tourneys running for EPT London. There are no Pound () Steps as there is no Pound Step System at this time.

Cheers,

Surely there are more than enough players in the United States interested in playing Step 6s to EPT London to justify running $-denominated EPT London sats. And those players probably aren't going to bother creating Euro accounts for the sole purpose of playing sats to win a seat into an event whose buy-in is in Pounds.
