The Admiral Codrington

The Admiral Codrington

Among the many financial institutions that have disappeared in the last year, one in particular is to be mourned. The European Real Estate Private Equity Mezzanine CDO Group Poker School no longer meets in the Admiral Codrington.

Theories vary as to the cause of its demise – do the players have a new pastime? Do they find they are so busy losing other people’s money, they have no time to lose their own? Do they no longer have any money? I prefer to think they are simply ashamed to be seen in public.
