PLEASE NOTE: HARD LUCK IS SUSPENDED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE
A new year and a new weekly Pool Tournament at The Stoke Pub & Pizzeria – but it’s a Pool Tournament with a Twist… it’s called Hard Luck for a reason!
The first thing you need to know is that Hard Luck starts on Sunday 8th January with a bumper 1st place prize of £200. We’ll be playing Hard Luck every Sunday thereafter but with a 1st place prize of £100.
The second thing you need to know is why it’s called Hard Luck… we’ll here’s why:
- Each player can buy 1, 2 or 3 lives (up to 7.50pm)
- Each life will be placed into a hat
- Two names/lives will be drawn from the hat at 8pm to play the first Pool game
- Then it’s winner stays on, with their next opponent drawn at random from the hat
- If you are playing and your own name is called, you loose 1 life
- The winner is the person that wins the last game
Get why it’s called Hard Luck now? If not let us explain… you could be on the table from the first match until the last match winning each and every game and then right on the last game someone who hasn’t played all night comes along and beats you! They win £200 and you go home with nothing – ouch, Hard Luck mate! It’s all down to luck, when your name is drawn, who you play against, how many times you play and eventually if you win or not!
We think the game is fantastic and we’re very excited to introduce it to our weekly events and we hope you are too.
Now then, just a final bit of information for you. Each life will cost you £1 (£3 total for the max. 3 lives) and the game of Pool is paid for by the new opponent (£1) – so the maximum you will spend in an evening will be £6 and the minimum would be £1 – not bad considering the prize is £200 initially followed by £100 each week thereafter.
So please come and join us for our first game of Hard Luck this Sunday evening, first game starts at 8pm and last chance to buy your lives is 7.50pm – no late entries will be accepted.
See you Sunday!
