                        Hi,

                        Will it be the same structure in ME as last year?
                        Is there a link to the structure of ME?

                        Looking forward to it again

                          Hi Structure for JP Poker Masters will be the same as last year.

                          I will get JP today, he's in meeting for most of the day with the Hotel so it will probably be tonight.

                              Norwegian Championships Main Event has the same structure.
                              Only difference is we've added a 3rd starting day on Tuesday 15th

                                Hi Jp hope your keeping well. Just wondering what is the story for both online and live satellites for the masters game. Also how many attended last year/how many are you anticipating this year?

                                  Are any of the games rebuys/reentries, or are they all freezeouts?

                                    Cash games

                                    Hey JP, when do the cash games kick off and what is the rake and stakes available.
                                    Thanks

                                      20+ Cash Tables on first night in Citywest. 1/2 NLH, 1/2 PLO, 1/2 ROE, 2/5 NLH and PLO and lists for 5/10+ - plenty of action and as usual a great atmosphere. Can only imagine what its going to be like when all the Norwegians arrive.

                                          Hi no online sats unfortunately.

                                          We have a Norwegian Championship Main Event satellite on Monday and Tuesday at 8pm it's €80 buy-in with €50 rebuys.

                                          Any non Norwegian player who wins a €800 ticket will have it transferred to a €550 JP Masters Ticket and will get €250 in cash.

                                          I also have a satellite in my Club on Wednesday night at 8pm, €60 with 1 rebuy €30.

                                          Jp

                                              Will you have a results thread this year?

                                                        With the main event Day 1 today could this see some side events tonight being pulled / moved? I will be leaving Limerick around 4 for the HORSE later, if someone could post if there is any chance of it not going ahead as planned, ta.

                                                          Hi Ciaran,

                                                          Yes I'm going to get it up shortly

                                                          Either an unfortunate choice of words, a Freudian slip, or a little too much information ...

                                                            Sorry for the late reply. Should be no problem with all games today. Tomorrow will be the busiest of the 3 starting days of the main event. But we do have more tables than last year so hoping no games end up cancelled this year.

                                                                Not there but going on yesterday I'd imagine a least 20 at this stage. If you have twitter follow Larry Santo as he's looking after cash and tweets regular updates.

                                                                Heading up later myself but fun watching a few €20k+ PLO pots last night

                                                                  2k HR event had 66 runners with about 20 minutes left to reg.
