I'll just start a new thread here:

As you know, there was a forum poker tourney yesterday on 32red. Although only a few people participated it was still good fun and we had a blast. Whoosh came out victorious after playing some solid poker and the fact that it was all rigged against me :D when we got to heads-up play.

I really think we could make this a recurring thing and this is why:

* a low buy-in, say $5 or $10 so everyone can afford to play
* we get to chat and know each other a bit better
* it would be a nice break from spinning those reels or whatever it is you do days on end ;)
* a chance to win a few bucks
* bounties abound, I'll gladly put up something extra to make things even more interesting

So what do you say? Should we try to hold another sometime during the summer?

Feel free to post your opinion here; anything from which type of game you prefer to when the tournament should be held to how almost illegally handsome I am.

Let her rip!

we could beta test our poker platform, I could issue every entrant a free 10$ for the signup fee, what do you think? Definitely better than the prima software (IMO).

Excellent idea! :thumbsup:
Only problem is (presumably) no USA players allowed...?

As for software - ANYTHING is better than Prima IMHO! :rolleyes:

I'd go for that! Which network is it?

You should create a tournament on stars.
If you can not, I will do it for you.
That way all forum members can play US included!

Yup, make it happen and I'll be there. With a little luck we'll have 3 events to look forward to; a Stars battle, XXL:s beta tourney and KK's mystery bash.

Aim for saturday or sunday afternoons imo with a few days notice and go for it.

I may have missed it, but what is KK's mystery bash? And will there be strippers there? :D

Seriously, when and where?

Edited: *putting dunce cap on* - obviously, if you knew when and where, it wouldn't be a mystery, would it? I need a vacation.

:lolup: :D

It's a project in the making I belive. And of course there will be strippers, do you think I would show even remote interest if there weren't? :p

Give me a day and a time and I will set it up for you.
Great! That'll be 3 tourneys to look forward to! :thumbsup:

My problem at the moment is time - never enough of it :mad:

I'm going to do a poll to find out what most people want & when.
I will probably go for Prima as more people likely to have accounts (almost anyone with an MG casino account), and may have to chat up PurpleNaomi to help set it up the way I want it.

This coming weekend is too soon.
Saturday 16th my misses might be organising a party, so that only leaves Sunday June 17th.

After that I'm away on me hols from June-22nd to July 5th....

So if Liquid or XXL want to do theirs first it might be easier for me, but please don't have it while I'm away - I wanna play! :p

She meant male strippers. :)

Maybe so GM, maybe so...but in this day and age you never know, people swing in just about any way and direction :D

Here's what I'd like to see:

KK sets one up on Prima the 17th, naturally. Get on it already! :cool:
soapy aims for the Stars, any afternoon is fine by me
XXL hosts one on the beta ware when it's convenient

Like I said before, a couple of days notice is needed imo to get as many players as possible.

I guess we should better setup a poll and see when most players can join the fun. Time and date should be defined. Then we can setup the tournaments.

Its all fine with me, we should set up a Casinomeister Poker league.
With the winners getting WSOP seats (paid for by none other than KK) :).

Okey-dokey guys - here's the bad news & the good news...

I've been quietly working in the background to try to set up the tourney for the 17th with the help of PurpleNaomi, but there is a problem.
I left it a bit too late and then found that Purple Lounge (or any other Prima site) can not set up a pot-added tourney themselves, they have to get Microgaming to do it which could take a few days.

So here's my proposal:
I set up a normal buy-in for the 17th (this Sunday).
Then if LiquidSoap & XXL could set dates for theirs, I'll arrange another one with the help of Purple Lounge, maybe in about 6-weeks time...?
The good news is my second one WILL be pot added by myself, and possibly by PL as well making it a more juicy proposition! :cool:

So for this Sunday, $5 or $10 buy-in's chaps?
Limit, Pot-limit or No-limit?
(I'd prefer $10 Pot-limit).

Chicken!! :p

I prefer NL myself, but that's just me. Long as you're not playing with a bunch of cowboys, that go all-in every hand cause it seems like fun. :rolleyes:

If you set it up through Purple Lounge, I don't have to join through there, do I? For this one I mean, not the pot added one. I can join through 32Red right? The tourney will be available throughout the Prima Network?

Thanks KK. :thumbsup:

For this Sunday, you definitely can join from any Prima site.
For the pot added: Hopefully the same (if all goes according to plan! :p)

I prefer pot-limit for the very reason you mention - muppets going all-in pre-flop just spoils the game for me.

What will be required in order to play in your tourney?
Is just being a member of your casino enough, or do players have to join a separate poker room?

It's unlikely I'll be able to play myself as I'll be in the Czech Repulic... unless I can chat up my sister-in-law to see if I can use her PC... ;)
