My girlfriends best mate has been given 10K to start her own business.. I've suggested that they give the money to me so I can play the GUKPT and the UKIPT. Guess what the Mrs told me to do haha!

Joking aside, what would be a good way to use this money? it would be nice to see her do well from it

similar sort of figure i gave my daughter.

we leased an indoor stall at a large shopping mall and she sells costume jewellery and accessories etc which i import from china.

profits are very good.

ie we had 1,000 baseball caps xmas time we paid 1.10 each so you can see the mark up.

also as it is cash there is quite a lot of scope,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,if you get what i mean.

do yr homework on the chinese import export sites, so many goods to choose from and haggle for a stall as they are negotiable.

good luck

i suppose playing poker with high ranking guardia civil officers, and having the mayor of our town as a club member, comes in handy!

That's what ACES in mijas thought, until one day the national police decided to pay a visit. You've never seen a poker room disassembled so quickly...

lol was you there that day rob? gutted i missed that.

they did put it a little too, in the face, though.

new owners seem to have no problems and are busier, so someone is being looked after!

new club i use is in the hills, just 5 tables and cosy.

yeah I was there that day with timmy the tooth and a coule of (old) gib casino regulars. We got in and the owner's son (gavin iirc) came in and said he's seen a guy prowling round the carpark, when he approached him he got a gun pulled on him. Then after about 5 minutes they showed the badge. Then he came in, the chips were removed from the tables etc hehe

now you dont get that sort of excitement in the UK.


i was in a cash game in banus 2 summers ago, bought in for 600 and had queens full 2nd hand so was over a grand up, was half thinking of leaving the game quickly whilst up.
Didnt have to make my own mind up as seats 3 and 8 decided to pull guns on eachother arguing over a string bet, so the owner closed the game after that.

you just dont get these stories back home,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,or do you?
