                          Hi Emers guy, structure is ok. You will have plenty chips. Also if you pay optional €5 you get 2K more in chips. Don't worry you will enjoy as much poker as you will need holiday after tourney... :-)

                                  Hi Emers, you are probably use to pay something like 200 + 20 reg. There is not reg. here, but you guys can pay optional €5 and for that you will receive 2K more in chips and that €5 goes to the tourney league. That is how we do regular tournaments here and running leagues with €10000 gtd every 3 months.
                                  So max buyin is €200+ €5.

                                    so if someone takes the max buy-in of €205, €200 of that goes straight into the prize pool?

                                                  4 players out so far. Biggest hand in the first 2 levels was a 3 way all in on a JQ3 board. Denis Kovalenko open shoved pocket JJ in late position. Geoff Kearney called from the big blind with 33. Mid position called with AA. Turn and river were both blanks. Two players down and Denis is our chip leader.

                                                    Derek Murray caught a huge break in the first level after getting it all in bad. The chips went in on the turn when Derek 3 bet shoved on Hector Garcia with a flopped set of Qs only to be insta called by Hectors nuts straight with a re draw to a flush. The board paired on the river knocking Garcia out and giving a double up to the local hero.

                                                                        Albert hero called with top pair on a four flush board against keit only to find that keith was bluffing with top 2!!! Then just a couple of hands later he flops top pair and runs into Jamie Flynns aces who sets up on the turn.
                                                                        Tough love for the ex- chip leader. Jamie now in pole position with mounds of chips in front of him. We will have the Ukipt final tablists exact chip count in 20 mins along with all of the other players counts

Coley Carrick, Niall Henderson and Tony Harte all made early exits after staring the day quite short. The pick of the hands so far was a double up for Conor Ainsworth. He got it in with AhKd against Fionntan Darcy's AsKs and rivered a flush. Sick 60k pot for Galway local. Is it a sign of things to come?

Jamie Flynn and Adam Carlin have fallen back a bit. Ross Flynn in great shape with around 300k. The field is generally quite even. It is anyone's guess who will be the bubble boy.

There is not reg. here, but you guys can pay optional €5 and for that you will receive 2K more in chips and that €5 goes to the tourney league. That is how we do regular tournaments here and running leagues with €10000 gtd every 3 months.
                                                                                                                        So max buyin is €200+ €5.
                                                                                                                        Its pretty clear you stated a couple of times all 200 was going into the prize pool, not 180
