Spring 2020 season’s bonus points weeks

There will be two Bonus Points Weeks in the Winter Season. The first will be on first Mondays April and FMay. Fifty percent additional points will be awarded at those events. Anyone playing their Joker options at these tournaments will be playing for double points (not a multiplier of the Bonus Points number).

To find us click here

Use your joker this season

All players, after playing three times with us can play their joker once a season. This gives them 50% more league points than normal. If they opt for it in a  season’s Bonus Points week (which also awards 50% more), they play for double points (100% more). Players must declare their intentions before playing the first hand of a tournament and if they have not played their Joker option by the season’s final week and are in attendance at that event, a joker will automatically be applied to their score.

We stage first class low stakes Texas Hold’em poker tournies in Sussex.  Join in the fun with us.

Games suspended due to Coronavirus

In the light of the Coronavirus pandemic, a decision has been made to close the Avenue Bridge Club until further notice. This means that there will be no poker. Sorry about this, but it’s a prudent measure bearing in mind what is ahead. I know that at least two other poker leagues have made similar decisions over the last couple of days. Looking forward to seeing you when it’s done and dusted.

Take care all.

Much love, Jonno.

New names in the money

Our March 9 tournament saw Andrew Bown, Mike Cook and Anthony Robertson cash in a 16 player event. Mike Cook smashed the two league leaders Nick Jeffery and Dean Ghasemi in consecutive hands. That’s my boy!


Hot shot pair continue into new season

Our inaugral tournament of Spring 2020 took place on March 2 with 16 players doing battle for top spots. The two leaders from our Winter 2019/2020 season immediately went into those pole positions with Nick Jeffery winning and Dean Ghasemi taking second. Third place was Mike Moody, who visited from the contact bridge room, as his partner did not show.

Dez wins the night, Dean wins the season

Dez Fry took top spot in our Winter 2019/20’s final game, with Nick Jeffery and Dean Ghasemi coming second the third respectively.

The bragging rights for the season had ebbed and flowed throughout, but Dean stole the march in the last two sessions.

Dean was also top money winner of the period (£270) and took the Inbetweener’s title. Rosario Graziano won our Shiftworkers’ title (first six games), Jonno Cook, the Grumpiest Grand Master and Callum Scott Young Pretender and our highest rated player measured at base points per game.

With 21 kills, Nick was the to assasssin.
