That's right. Just like you see on TV, almost.

Big Dog is hosting a "Heads Up" tournament.

We will do a single elimination format, 16 players min., 32 max.

I have obtained single elimination brackets from the internet that will accomodate any number of players, but we will shoot for at least 16, no more than 32.  The initial seating will be random draw process.  Draw a card to determine your starting bracket position.  The bracket system will decide the rest.  Lose and your out.

The buy in is $40 + $10 for house fee and food.  Pay top 3 with a 60/30/10 split.

We will have 7 minute blinds and deep starting chip stacks.

We will have four "heads up" tournament tables to start, 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 $10.  All proceeds from the game (house fee and rake) will be donated to a deputy dog who is experiencing some medical set backs and could use the help.  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 have a maximum of 32, so sign up fast.

The blind schedule was well paced last time. Here's is the breakdown for 16 players:

    I certainly will come and support Randy. Since all proceeds go to our friend, it would be nice if players want to donate a food item. I will bake cookies cuz I know Randy loves cookies. Will also bring a full crock pot of some hot food.
