Hi,

I'd like to extend an invite to you on behalf of Oxford University Poker Society to the Oxford Cup 2 tournament on Sunday 30th November!

This is really just a student (and ex-student in my case)/ celebrity promotional tournament with a suitably small buyin - 20 plus rebuys - but the invite list promises to be impressive with many top european players and celebrities having confirmed already, so theres always the promise of decent side action. Phil H. is also confirmed to be jetting in to play, and its set in the ultra-swakny Randolph Hotel.

I dont know if the mob are scheduled to play in slovenia around this time (or Vicky as well?), but you're all very welcome to attend if available - it should be an interesting day. Photos of last years event can be found at;

http://users.ox.ac.uk/~poker/tournaments/oxford_cup.htm

and details of this years event are at (though the confirmed list has grown substantially since this went up);

http://users.ox.ac.uk/~poker/events/oxford_cup2.htm

I trust you can get my contact details off this site, but ill check for replies here anyhow. Congrats to the mob on recent form, and the prima tour diary - it would be great if you could come support the event. And congrats to Vicky on her burgeoning fan club - hope you'll be around on the 30th to set some young hearts on fire...

Cheers,
Phil.

That's very kind, and thanks very much for the invitation, but unfortunately the date you've chosen coincides with the world's greatest charity poker tournament, the Holdem 100

( www.holdem100.com )

which I can't possibly miss. But lots of luck with the tournament and do please ask me again next year!

Hi,

Is there any chance of an invite for me?

My first live tourney was in Paris, the second in Dublin, and it would be neat to make yours my third.

I'd be on my best behaviour and promise not to oversleep the night before like in Paris!

Warmest

Phil Rouse

With his ott, self cogratulary,pompous,arrogant,self serving approch to poker;Mr Britton would not be a quality addition to the Oxford cup, and an invitation should be avoided at all cost.

While this may or may not be true, I believe that the Jim "The Bandit" Britton who posted in this thread is an imposter.

First of all Stoner, who are you to say I would not be welcome.....I think I would be a popular choice - as you may have noticed, I caused quite a string of threads on my previous postings - which is more than I can say for you! So why shouldn't I be invited?

Gazza me ol fruit -

I am the one and only Jim "The Bandit" Britton. I did have me very own stalker but he hasn't been around for a wee while.

Ah yes Jim ,those threads! seemed to be almost 90% negative. Most contributors pointing out your Walter Mitty lifestyle, and your grandious claims regarding your returns. It is in everyones interest to keep you away from these new young entrents to the poker world, now back to the $10 tounys at Laddies with you.

sorry eric. But as I mentioned before were one of the first to doubt Mr Brittons claims I can now say as a follower of his on vc poker he fares very well infact almost rarely loses. Now I am certainly no fan but sense a little de ja vous when this post sinks to the depths of britten/!!!!

cheers for the response. Anyone interested can contact Joe Barnard at:

poker@herald.ox.ac.uk

for full details. Marty and Howard, we'd be more than happy to have you there for the day! Anyone else, youre certainly welcome as well i think, but please check with joe. Oh and as i understand it, theres a full weekend of events planned with cash games and Hellmuth speaking at the union on Saturday 29th Nov, so if anyone who cant make it Sunday (like Vicky) wants to come and sample the atmosphere on the saturday thats fine too.
