Poker Night - Come early for a $10 Omaha tournament that includes pizza and pop

  • This location is shown only to members

The game is No Limit Texas Holdem, and it will begin at 7pm sharp, and the buy-in will be $20 plus an optional purchase of a $5 bounty chip (explanation below).  A player may come in and/or re-buy as many times as they desire as long as it's within the first hour and twenty minutes.  Players may re-buy a full 200 chips as soon as their chip stack is below 50 (you don't have to wait until you're busted out).  As a bonus, any player that is on time will receive an extra 25 chips on top of the 200 they get to start with.

At 8:20, the blinds will reach 5/10 and we will chip up.  At that time, there will be one last chance to re-buy.  Additionally, any and all players may purchase an optional  100 chip add on for $10 or a 200 chip add on for $20, regardless of the players chip stack at the time.

As people start getting knocked out, there will be a cash game available with $0.25/0.50 blinds and you can come and go as you please. That game will continue as long as people feel like playing.

Please BYOB and any snacks you may personally want.  This isn't a typical party, but games and TV will be available for those that want to hang out after they get knocked out of the tournament

Explanation of Bounty Chips

Each player who buys one will receive a “bounty chip” that will be carried by the player throughout the tournament. Whenever you eliminate someone from the tournament, you receive their bounty chip, which is yours to keep.  Likewise, when you are eliminated from the tournament, you give your bounty chip to whoever busted you, potentially keeping any bounty chips that you may have won previous to being knocked out.  At the end of the tournament, or whenever you are knocked out for good, you can cash in all of your bounty chips you've accrued for real money – in this case, $5/chip.

Please note, if you choose to 'not buy' a bounty chip for yourself, you will not be eligible to win other people's bounty chips.  Anyone that does have a bounty chip and is busted out by a person without one of their own will be able to keep their own chip and cash it back in for a refund.

Anyone who is knocked out and wants to re-buy will still lose the bounty chip that they initially bought.  However, they may also purchase an additional bounty chip during the time of their re-buy if they want to continue being eligible to win them.

Details for the cash game

During the optional cash game as people start getting knocked out, the blinds will be $0.25/0.50, so $20 is a recommended minimum to buy in with.  You can come and go as you like, so bring as little as or much as you want to the table.

On an additional note, I will be collecting donations throughout the cash game; for every $5 in the pot, I will kindly ask for a donation to the house of $0.25, up to a max of $5 if a pot manages to go beyond $100.  All money collected in this manner goes back into these events.  Thus far, I've purchased chairs, cards, cups, plates, TP, plastic utensils, etc.

    So, I have an idea and I want to know who would be interested in coming. I am thinking about beginning the day with a $10 Omaha Tournament starting at 3pm. With that $10, I will buy pizza and pop for all those players and then the top 1-3 players will take the rest depending on the number of players. If there is extra time in between the 2 tournaments, we'll have the option of a cash game. Everyone please reply to this comment on if you would be interested in playing, knowing that the $10 you put forth will also buy you dinner.

    I would love to attend... but I'll be in West Branch early Sunday morning. So I'll have to miss this one.
