Poker night at Pock

Pocklington Rugby Club is holding a poker night on 12 May in aid of the Under-12 team.

They have 36 places available for a tournament with great prizes for the top three players who make it through three gruelling rounds of Texas Hold’em poker.

Entrance fee is just £20 per person, which includes your first pint, food and 10,000 chips to play with.

First round (7pm-8pm): 36 players on six tables for one hour. If you go bankrupt you are out. Top three chip winners go through to second round with their winnings

Second round (8.15pm-9.15pm): 18 players on three tables for one hour. Stakes are doubled. If you go bankrupt you are out. Top two chip winners go through to final with their winnings.

Final (9.30pm-11pm): Six players for 90 minutes. Stakes are doubled. If you go bankrupt you are out. Top three chip winners get the prizes.

But don’t worry if your poker face is more like a story book - after the first round there will be three loser tables where, for an £8 fee, you will get 5,000 chips to play with until 11pm (or when you run out of chips). The winner on each table will win a prize.

To book your seat and stand a chance of winning the star prize call Chris on 07595 022075 or visit www.pockpoker.com.

They also need sponsors for the evening and are asking you, the businesses of Pocklington and surrounding areas, to help secure the future of the town’s rugby club.
