Do you wanna be in my gang, my gang?

As you may have read elsewhere, I've been appointed the new Team Irish Eyes Poker captain. The role is different from the traditional "sponsored player": essentially my role is to provide a player's point of view to improve the player experience.

I've been playing on Irish Eyes Poker for a while now, mainly because the network is so soft :) I'm particularly looking forward to meeting all Team Irish Eyes Poker players at July's EMOP Dublin leg in Clontarf Castle. This promises to be one of the highlights of the Irish calendar with local players pitting their wits against the regular European crowd the EMOPS attracts. Players who sign up using signup code 'doke' to join Team Irish Eyes Poker get a great 30% rakeback deal and a 10% live bonus which can be used to buy into live events as a Team player. In addition, Team players receive an EMOP Bubble guarantee, hospitality at EMOP events, and the Last Team player playing at EMOP Dublin wins a 2,000 euro EMOP package to another EMOP event.

If you already have an account and want to join the Team, drop me an email, tweet or message at Facebook or Irish Poker Boards with your account details and I'll get the good people at Irish Eyes to sort it out for you.

To launch my captaincy of Team Irish Eyes Poker, Irish Eyes are running a new league online from this Monday 16th May to Sunday 12th June where the winner of the league will get a Free seat for the Northern Open, and hotel accommodation for the event, on from the 17th June in the Fairways Hotel, Dundalk.

Play in the Deep Stack tournaments on Irish Eyes Poker every day at 16.00pm or 21.55pm. These have a €10 entry fee and have a €1,000 gtd prize pool.

EDIT: Irish Eyes Poker have generously added a ticket only prize in a special private 9 man tournament, for players that come in positions 2 - 10 of the league. We can stagger the chips based on the finishing position, and suggest as it is a deep stack tournament league, the following chips stacks will apply:

2nd = 6000
3rd = 5500
4th = 5000
5th = 4500
6th = 4000
7th = 3500
8th = 3000
9th = 2500
10th = 2000

This final game we propose to set up for Tuesday 14th June at 21.00.

There are 56 in total between Monday 16th May and Sunday 12th June. Play as many as you like and the best 8 results will go to your league points.

How it works: You MUST register to take part in this league by emailing your username to team@irisheyespoker.ie

The 'LOWEST' point scorer in the league wins. Your finishing position in each of your best 8 Deep Stack events are totalled to give your final point score.
Winner of the Deep Stack is in 1st position which equals 1 point. The player that finishes in 42nd position gets 42 points. So the higher you some in each of your best 8 tournaments, the lower the points you will have in the league.

Player positions will be posted on Irish Poker Boards.

Best of Luck. I'm going to play a few of these but I'm excluding myself from the league. :)

I made my Dublin City FM debut with Breifne today. It was good craic and hopefully I'll be back there regularly. Breifne came up with a great bankroll management type project that hopefully will get off the ground.

On the online poker side, I had a pretty good week, some very deep runs on Irish Eyes and Party. I've also cashed in most of the SCOOPs I've played so far, but nothing to get overly worked up about.

I'm heading to Cork on Wednesday with Mick Mccloskey for the UKIPT. I expect I'll have to make my way to some roundabout or other for Mick to pick me up cos that's how he rolls.
