September Poker Night raises more than 300 pounds

Thanks to everyone who supported the FCUM Poker League last season. We kicked off again with the first game of this season last Friday night. 19 players turned up and, as usual, it was a hard fought but very enjoyable contest.

First place went to newcomer Martin Cosgrave. Stephen Hughes, despite having around 100,000 chips at the cut-off break, could only finish second. The third paid prize went to regular final table player, Bev Kilroy. Perhaps the biggest surprises of the night were Simon Fry and Lee Booth, without doubt two of last season’s best players, both failing to make the final table.

£330 was raised for FC United, with a further £310 being split between the winners. We plan to raise over £4,000 this season so if you fancy a game and want to support FC United at the same time then come along to October’s FCUM Poker Night which takes place on Friday 19th at the Grosvenor Casino on Regent Road.

The points for the night were as follows:
