Changes to Seat Confirmation System

Because we are getting busier, we need to streamline the seat confirmation system as well as finding a fair way for regular players to secure their seats before new players can be seated. To do this, all seat confirmations will now be done by email. The text message system is being discontinued.

Also, early registration invites will be sent out to current players (those who have played within the last year) on the Friday prior to the event, giving them the weekend to confirm their seat. On TUESDAY, the general invitation will go out and from there it is first come first serve until all seats are filled.

If you have any questions, shoot me an email.

Thanks!

Season 8 Summary

Again my apologies for not keeping the website up to date.

The Second Chance Tourney went off without a hitch in October, with a couple of veterans securing their spots at the Championship table. Congrats to Darren VR and Greg B for making it through the tough Second Chance Tourney.

The Championship was held in November as scheduled. The single table deepstack tournament lasted until after 1am. Khanh sucked out on Pat to knock Pat out 4th. Grant was eliminated in third place, leaving Khanh with a major chip lead over myself for the heads up match. No miracle come-backs were in the cards, and Khanh dispatched me in about 15 hands.
Congratulations to Khanh L for being the League Champion for 2014!

Second Chance Tourney this Friday

The Second Chance tournament will be running this Friday, for the 10 people from 9th place to 18th place. A lucky couple of people that finished in 19th and 20th place will be able to play in place of some that were not able to make the tournament.

The tournament starting chipstacks will be based upon the finishing points of the regular season.

Note, there will be no other tournaments playing this Friday.

Good luck to all the players.

Event #9 This Friday!

To remind all of our players how the points system works in making the Championship Tournament or making the Second Chance Tournament, here is how the points affect things:

Points are awarded for each league event based on the finishing place and number of players. Your top eight finishes count towards your total points.

The Championship table players are set as follows:

  • The top eight players in points through the regular season automatically get their seats at the Championship.
  • The Second Chance tournament is a single-table tournament with players #9-18 determine the final two seats at the championship table. This means that anyone up to 18th place in the standings can make the final table.

So if you are on the fence whether to play this Friday or not, have a look at the standings and see how important this tournament is to your league standings. For the majority of players, this is a very important tournament.

Having said all that, here are the details:

Friday, September 19th . Arrive by 7:15pm to check in and pay, cards fly at 7:30pm.

  • $33 buy-in + $7 league pool* = $40
  • T5000 tournament. 20 minute blinds.
  • No Rebuys or Add-ons.
  • Attendance will be capped at 30, so get your responses in to secure your seat.
  • If you do not confirm your attendance and arrive after 7:10pm, you will NOT be seated for the tourney.
