and just cause you start a thread doesnt mean you have some great power. no one should trade any money with you. if you wanna pay your investors, just trade it straight up and send them the money online. or if you want to actually not be a huge idiot/scumbag, take 4% and send all the vig to your investors, keeping none of it for yourself.

well, a lot of people gave him the benefit of the doubt and kinda just overlooked it (or just flat out didnt know about the thread).


i am sure if i went into every thread he was selling shares too, and posted a link to this san remo thread, i would have been called a troll/idiot 100x over.



thats ok though.

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

Getting into Heathrow at 9 pm tomorrow (Monday), Continental flight from Newark. If anyone's on that or getting in around that time and wants to chop some form of transportation to the hotel/casino, PM me.

Also, how much is a cab going to be to the casino from Heathrow and is there any convenient cheaper alternative? Going to have a lot of luggage so not too interested in carrying it up and down large staircases.

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

ok revised prices for cash in person/buyins to live events in return for online money + vig:

Stars - 5%
FTP - 6%

Only dealing with reputable 2p2ers. For cash you will need to meet me at casino/bank to collect and for very large amounts will need a few days notice. CR pro, references available etc.

It's less than 20 miles so you'd expect change out of 60 for a taxi... obviously the tube is a lot cheaper but a good deal more hassle.

Despite having an N in its postcode, The Int Club is not really North London! It's East Central really, being in Shoreditch, zone 1. Their 2pm tournament pretty much fits your bill:

2pm- 25 Deep and Steep NLH Freezeout
5,000 chips, 15 min.clock. Early bird option of 1,500 chips for 3

It really depends on actually how much work you want to do. A cab will be 60-100 depending on how busy the taxi rank is.

You can take a train; http://www.heathrowexpress.com/Home?...FQ1t4wodWX1eZg

Or there will be all manner of buses that get into London;
http://www.milesfaster.co.uk/informa...-bus-coach.htm

And there will be a tube which will run regularly; http://www.tfl.gov.uk/

I do understand that in a city that you don't know very well public transport can be a bit daunting. All I would say is that if you take the train/tube then there won't be a long of stairs considering that all the stations have escalators these days. Basically if 100 is less important to you than the hassle then just get a cab

The free wireless is the worst ever. I paid like 15 pounds or something to get plugged in high speed and it's working well.

EDIT

May have jinxed it will keep you posted.

last year my backer gave me a cashiers check for $20k USD and I just took it to the cage at the Empire and they bought me in and gave me the change in pounds. I don't remember the fee but it was totally reasonable and was zero hassle.
