That's right. Just like you see on TV, almost.
Big Dog is hosting a "Heads Up" tournament.
We will do a 16 player, double elimination format.
I have obtained double elimination brackets from the internet that will accomodate any number of players, but we will shoot for 16. The initial seating will be random draw process. The lovely Poodle will draw names. Once your name is drawn, you get to reach in a bag and blindly draw a number that will determine your starting position. The bracket system will decide the rest. Two losses and your out.
The buy in is $50 + $10 for house fee and food. Pay top 3 with a 60/30/10 split.
We will have 5 minute blinds and deep starting chip stacks.
We will have two "heads up" tournament tables, playing one match at each end.
We will also have a $1/$2 cash table available all day long for your entertainment. We will provide a dealer who is working for tips, so show the love. $1 rake on pots over $20 to help pay for food. Big Dog is non-profit, we are about the poker and the fun.
Since there can be a lot of down time, the food will be served throughout the day. A selection of fresh deli cuts, breads, and cheese, along with all the fixin's for the killer sandwich, choice of soups, baked goods and snacks, plus the usual sodas and water. REMEMBER: IF YOU LIKE BEER, BRING BEER.
Becasuse of time restraints, we need to limit it to 16, so sign up fast.
The blind schedule was a little aggressive last time, so I will soften up the blind schedule so matches end based on play, not chips vs. blinds. Here's some of the breakdown:
Round 1 / games 1-4 / blinds start 5-10 / 2,500 chips / Noon
Round 2 / games 5-8 / blinds start 5-10 / 2,500 chips / ~13:00
Round 3 / games 9-12 / blinds start 10-20 / 5,000 chips / ~14:00
Round 4 / games 13-16 / blinds start 10-20 / 5,000 chips / ~15:00
Round 5 / games 17-20 / blinds start 25-50 / 10,000 chips / ~16:00
Round 6 / games 21-24 / blinds start 25-50 / 10,000 chips / ~17:00
Round 7 / games 25-26 / blinds start[masked] / 20,000 chips / ~18:00
Round 8 / games 27-28 / blinds start[masked] / 50,000 chips / ~19:00
Round 9 / games 29-30 / blinds start[masked] / 100,000 / ~20:00
This is going to be a lot of fun, so don't miss out! Sign up while you can.
