Sign up on this one if you are coming only for the 2nd game.  I have added all from the 1st game as guests under Ozzy.

 

It's time to get our monthly Texas Holdem tourney up and going. We have done this in the past and have had some incredibly large turnouts that equated into some really great times.

 This time around we're going to mix it up a little. We'll still have our $20 buyin table. But we will also add an optional $5 buyin table for those that would like to play but are perhaps just learning the game OR would rather play with less at stake. My goal is to have 2 tables of 8 players each at the $20 buyin. Both tables will play independantly of each other with the top 3 players collecting on the winnings. First place: $80, Second place:$50, Third place: $30

Following this first game we will play a second game where the top 3 players from each $20 table will play together. This is a progressive game. This will be a $30 table. $30 will be withheld from your winnings and added to the pot. The fourth place finishers will have the option of filling the additional 2 spots. If any spot still remains open it will open up to anyone else. With the spot being awarded to the first person dealt a one eyed Jack. 2nd game payout ($240)as follows: 1st place $100, 2nd place $80, 3rd place $60.

The $5 buyin table will payout the following: If 8 people playing top 3 positions: 1st place $20, 2nd place $15, 3rd place $5.   If 6 people playing top 2 positions: 1st place $20, 2nd place $10

Bring a snack to share and your own beverage of choice.
