MATCH REPORTS...


London Ladies are back in business

Inter CountyOur day began with Captain, Gill Buckingham's team talk where she praised the team spirit we had at the Kent game last month and urged the team to keep that going and concentrate on the task at hand. The team were in no mood to disappoint.

The match was close throughout the first set, however once we got our noses in front at 14-11, we went and won a straight 5 frames to leave the winning post in sight at 19-11. Although it seemed to be just a matter of time before we picked up the frames we needed, Sussex to their credit made a fight of it, but I had the rare satisfaction of sinking the winning black (rare for me not the team!) as we ran out winners by 28 frames to 16.

Player of the Match (awarded by Gill) was Linda Redwood who played exceptionally well to win 4/4 and showed a good level of concentration throughout. It was a great team effort and even those who didn't get the wins they expected played very well. The individual highlights were Corrine Grattan also winning 4/4 and Sarah Long, Sue Studman, Gill Buckingham and Sarah King each getting 3/4. A mention too for super sub Keely Clarke with 2/2, hopefully she has done enough to get her name on the team sheet for the start of the next match.

Hampshire visit next on 17 May. I think we have given them something to think about.

JFKs Poker League

CompetitionsI will be starting a poker league at JFKs on Monday nights .

Basically, it will be £10 entry and thats all you will pay for the night. The aim is to get 30 or so players. 30 players would mean £300 in the prize pool. £150 would be paid out on the night and the other £150 would go into a kitty, which would build up over time.

The league would run till November and each week the people in it would get points for where they finish, ie, 30 pts for 1st, 29pts for 2nd etc down to 1 point for 30th.

In November the top 9 players would be the final table.

1st prize would be entry into The Grosvenor UK Poker Tour - entry for this event is £3,150 and will give you a chance to become a MILLIONAIRE.

Any left over money would be shared in proportion to where you finish on the final table.

Anyone interested please contact me.

I would like to start this no later than 27th April.

A Team Captain's report: Kent 18 - 26 London

Inter CountyThe A team continued our good start to the season with a 26-18 win away to Kent on March 22nd.

We lost the first 2 frames but caught up straight away, and thanks to solid performances all round (except from the captain, I’m sorry to say) we were always ahead and comfortable from then on, without ever quite looking like pulling away for a really big win. All the sessions were won with scores of 6,7,6, and 7… which it has to be said is a bit unusual – whatever the final score, we normally have one great session and a dodgy
patch.

Apart from myself, no-one won fewer than 2 of their 4 frames, which is very pleasing. There are some very talented players in the B team who will be breathing down our necks more and more, and it seems like the A team incumbents are responding well to that pressure. As times goes on, though, it's possible that even a consistent 50% average won't be enough to retain a place.

Equally pleasing was a great performance from Joe Prince, who recovered from the disappointment of losing all 4 in the first match by winning all 4 in this one.. the only player to do so.

Surrey registered a 28-16 win at home to Sussex, who are our next opponents (also at our place) on 19th April.

[sorry for the lateness of this report! If anyone has anything to add, please feel free to do so in the Comments section]

Kent C vs London C

Inter CountyA game of 2 halves. We got off to a magnificent start and a winning streak of 8 frames helped us to a healthy 15-7 lead at the half way stage.

Kent moved up a gear or two in the second half and we weren’t quite able to respond. At the end of the 3rd session we were still 3 points ahead and should have finished them off but they won the last 4 frames to take the match.

Notable performances were: Tony Bailey 4 out of 4, Patrick McLaughlin 3 out of 4. John Munro, Peter McCafferty, Danny Moffat, Rob Chalmers and Mark Eldridge 2 out of 4 and Lee Mager 1 out of 2

B team Bashes Kent

Inter CountyWe arrived at Kent confident of winning our 2nd match in row to get our campaign of to the start we wanted. After battling through the heavy traffic, most of us got there at 1pm instead of our planned 12:30 and never got the practice we had planned to have before the match, but we did have time for a quick meeting before we started.

I had dropped 2 players to the C team for the day, Tony Bailey who wasn't present at our first match and Rob Chalmers who although has been playing well lately, did only get 1/4 against Berkshire. both players went on to do play their part against Kent with Tony running away with a star performace 4/4 on the day.

We had a few people absent due to work commitments and the fact that our match clashed with Mothering Sunday. All I asked of the players was to carry on where we left off and I would expect and hope that we could win each set 8-3. This you may think might be a bit ambitious, but I know my team and know what we are capable of.
