Iâ€™ve weaseled my way into the press room here at the G Casino Manchester for the UKIPT event sponsored by Pokerstars. Over the next 4 days iâ€™ll be speaking to players and uploading audio from the pros at the event. If youâ€™ve got any questions you want answering let me know. Several Pokerstars pros will be in attendance such as John Duthie. Keep up to date with the action via UKIPT twitter account http://twitter.com/UKIPT .
As for the press room itself, it has a high beard to non beard ratio, clearly a lot of overworked reporters with no time to shave. The venue itself is one of Grosvenor casinoâ€™s brand new G Casino brand. Large poker room with restaurant and licensed bar, so thatâ€™s me sorted for the next few days. Hopefully at some point the cash games will start and there will be PLO in addition to the NL hold-em.
Anyone needing to message me can do via skype, just add â€˜ribbo.comâ€™ and say where youâ€™re from :)
