Poker Night

On Thursday 14th Dec there will be a Poker night at the Downshire. This is a combined initiative between Graham Dibley and Sara at the complex and we have them every few months.

Whilst some people take the poker pretty seriously, it is always a fun night with lots of laughs. Each player buys in for just £5 and if you lose all your chips before the break then you can buy back in for an additional £5. So the most you can lose is £10 and your credibility (for going all in on a couple of pairs).

The entry fees are split, usually between the 1st, 2nd and 3rd placed player on each table. You will not be able to take a holiday on your winnings but it does give you gloating rights until the next time.

The game starts around 7.30 and usually runs till about 10.30 but a lot of people get eliminated early when you can either stay and see who wins or go for an early kebab and lick your wounds.

If you are interested in joining us for a game, then talk to Sara, Graham or email me at Do not worry if you have never played before as there are people who are willing to show you the ropes.
