Hi there lads,
We're looking forward to the festival here as well. One thing about the Maccau festivals is that they always have a class structure( whick you should post in your opening post as not only will your great tourney structure attract more quality players, it'll also keep the mods happy)

We'll be running a couple of satts as well. See ye soon

Im playing this. Anybody else heading? This is my first trip to Cork for Poker so I have some questions of those who have made the trek from Dublin before?

Accomodation - where is the best place to stay?

Transport - Is the train the best option? Driving to Cork on a Bank Holiday weekend is surely not desireable?

Anything else to note?

the macau is the best place in the country for a game of poker - i love it down there and am really looking forward to the festival - i've gotta build up one million brownie points with mrs bops & mini bops 1 & 2 first!

cash tables are v soft during festival, you'll fall in love with all the female staff (like you always do - and these ones are even good looking!), and the toasties are free and yummy!! - i can't wait!!!!

accomodation: i think the gresham metropole do a special rate for the macau - 99 quid per room or something - but i'm gonna stay in the clarion (coz flipper says it's classy like his polo shirts) - they are both within 2 mins walk of the macau

transport: drive you sissy! public transport is -ev

anything else: fold aces preflop

unlike the murphys i am bitter

this should be a good laugh sorry i am missing it

cant wait to hear about all the great rulings that the ahem Td will be giving if its anything like the last festival it will keep boards busy for a few weeks afterwards.

inconsistent rulings, furnace like playing conditions, tournaments starting in one area before another and players getting turfed out and not being reimbursed their entry fee

dont expect to see many familiar faces amoungst the dealers most have left recently

i do miss the waiting staff though

waiting for the excrement to hit the proverbial

good tourney structure , have to balance the books

Bob, if you have nothing nice to say, dont say anything!!!

I am in the Macau every week and I find it a great place to play!

There will always be some commotion at these events, but thats all thats remembered, not the great events that went without a hitch!

Agree with Bops on accomodation, The metropole(***) is literally beside the Macau.
The Clarion is also quite near and Jurys is across the road from the Macau.

On transport, the train takes 2hrs 50mins and is also very near both the Macau and the Gresham Metrepole.

Heres a Map!

Best of luck, if i had that sort of cash i'd play!
