Hi,

Connie's on snooker duty this week. AFAIK online sats start next week. I'll post here what date when I'm certain. A list of live sats around the country can be found here. This is being updated at the moment and more will be added.

Live satellites at the Olympus card club, waterford.

i know there's a link further up the thread regarding live sats, but I was in the Olympus in waterford last night, and there's so much interest there for it, they've changed date and decided to go with 2 sats.

They are on Sunday June 13th and Sunday June 20th.
Both sats are €150 freeze-outs (incl reg of €10). They expect to generate 3 tickets per night.
12,000 starting stack. 20 min clock for 4 levels. 25 min clock from there on. All levels included.

For further info, contact Fox at 086-1035798.

I think the 3x turbos are running nightly - these are the ones with 10 euro rebuy and 30k topup at the break right? Jumped into one last night having never played one before so will be having a rethink on my play before playing another
