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 stolen the format from 2012 Little League World Series, so if you have questions about how this will work search "brackets" for the 2012 LLWS. The initial seating will be random draw process. The lovely Poodle will draw names. You then get to reach in a bag and select your position.
The buy in is $100 + $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.
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.
We can only seat 16, so sign up fast. This was half full before it was even listed!
I anticipate 45 minutes per round, and 9 rounds to finish. The winners will be done before long before 8pm.
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 / 12:45
Round 3 / games 9-12 / blinds start 10-20 / 5,000 chips / 13:30
Round 4 / games 13-16 / blinds start 10-20 / 5,000 chips / 14:15
