|As far as I'm aware mate, yes. There are gold package winners that can use them for Malta, so I'm assuming its the same.

|For those of you not on facebook...
Been back home from the nationals for about a day now, and decided it was time to write out a little bit of a summary.
What a brilliant weekend as usual. Meeting up with everyone from all the different regions, old friends and new. Some great banter the whole weekend, and people looking for me to fall asleep at any given moment! It actually almost happened on the Saturday after being up until 6am on the Friday night/Saturday morning playing a PLO tournament. Managed to get 2 hours kip, but was awake again to play the main event which started at 10am!
Had mixed fortunes throughout the weekend, losing my first game (team event) on the Thursday night. Then on the pub team event on the Friday morning, I was doing well until losing heads up to Mandy Coulthard, then getting totally owned by Dan Tyler in the heads up game which I was tagged in by Gail. (Sorry Gail). Played a Vegas tournament on the Friday afternoon in which I just missed out on the final table. Onto the Friday night and the Omaha tournament. Spent the whole evening building up a lovely stack, and eventually made the final table with a decent amount of chips. Played for hours until about 5am or thereabouts when it got down to the last 3 people of myself John Nixon and Danny Gibney. Chips were moved around for a few rounds, until finally, I got them in with Danny, and he hit the river with one of only 2 cards he could get to beat me! Third place, and one of the two Malta trips evaded me!
Onto the Saturday main event, where I started building up nicely even though it was a struggle staying awake. Got up to about 90,000 chips and moved tables. Got beat a couple of times by Jimmy Vegas getting lucky! He's a proper nemesis that man! Eventually got my chips in against Ryan Mitchell, my 77 no good against his JJ, and that was my main event over. Decided to have a much needed sleep, before returning on the Saturday evening to see Drew Cloke and Dave Hawley on the final table. Both winning nice prizes. The event finally won by Victors, nice guy who I'd ever met before this year.
Sunday arrived, and there were two games to choose from, and I opted for the shootout tournament instead of the £10 rebuy for a Malta package. Little did I know what a great decision that would turn out to be! Started our table 6 handed, with a few good players on it, Lesley Warren joined later, but at the start was a guy from the North East who had been so unlucky on many occasions we had played previously, and was so again here. Also on the table was Marshell Rae, a brilliant laugh, and Matt Telf, who I later found out was a wrestler (Ace Matthews). It got down to myself and Matt, and I eventually won through to the final table after a decent heads up battle. After watching a few of the other tables, it transpired that four of the seven finalists were from the South! Myself, Gail Swain, Lew Laker, and David Kilshaw, alongside Jon Battams, Alan Pearcy and Dai Roberts.
The game was pretty open for much of it, Dai taking a lot of the first few hands to build up a nice chip lead, he looked the guy to beat. That is until Lew took a few chips from him, as well as Gail. Eventually I took him out making a good call. The players kept dropping out until it was down to Gail and me!
We had a few hands where the chips were going back and forth until I got AQ, and Gail a pair of 10s. All in, and with me hitting an ace and having more chips, it was game over and a trip to Malta! Also played the team event with Lew Laker on the Sunday night, but didn't manage to do anything in that.
Thanks to everyone that worked their socks off over the weekend, Kim, Tom, Mojo, Lisa, Jamie, Liam, Pickers, Joe, Abby and anyone else I may have forgotten. Far too many players to mention (apart from those already here), but each and every one of them making the weekend what it is. Bring on the Interleague and Malta!

|Hi Dave. That made interesting reading for me as I couldn't be there in person. How on earth you all do it, staying up all night and all day and then some. You all obviously enjoyed yourselves, and did the South proud. Thank you. smile

|You're welcome Marian.
Staying up was a necessity on the Friday night! The PLO didn't start until 10pm, and I decided to play it to try and win the Malta package, got to last three with two packages and tried my hardest to stay awake to get it along with John and Danny. Got the chips in good, just, but to no avail.
Have to point out that the Southerners had a great nationals again, especially the ones that weren't expected to such as Dave Kilshaw and Drew. Bob also did very well. One exception, he knows who so won't name him, but he was very disappointed this year.

|I think a lot of people (including myself) were very surprised on how well I did for my first nationals.5 tournaments entered, 3 final tables with 1 victory. Look forward to Malta to see how I do there smile

|If there was still a player of the series Dave, you may well have been somewhere near, if not at, the top of those rankings. You done very well indeed.

I cannot remember if I have ever seen this before. but in the Southern League, one player, namely, The Grumpy Frenchman, has just won 4 games in a row at the British Queen. Is this a record?
Congratulations Gavin. smile

|Its likely a record for one venue Marian, although there have been a few 4, and 5 in a row. I myself won 4 in a row (and 2nd in the 5th game) a few years ago.

Well done Gav, nice run mate, top dog beckons!

|Good luck to all the Southern players travelling to Cardiff for the area final.Unfortunately,(depending on how you look at it), I will not be going.I know how upset you will all be not being constantly YUUUPED!! Ha! Ha! but I am sure Terry will provide plenty of laughs. Have a safe trip and hopefully one of the Southern players will bring back the big W gringringringringrin

|Well, what a smashing evening on Thursday at BQ. Lots of players, lots of noise, lots of good atmosphere, and seeing people I have not seen for some time. We were all squashed together in a party mood.
One of the highlights was Hazels' sausage rolls which were delicious.
Thank you to everyone who organised it, and a Happy Easter to all.kiss
