just somthing i saw on another forum but how would the good people of this forum feel about setting up a game of poker forum members only?

say somthing like i low stakes game but everyone playing puts up one stick to the winner?

its just a bit of fun but what does everyone think about this?

Thats a great idea... It will be a good chance to brush up our poker skills!
I have never managed to stay awake all night to catch the tournaments of the other forum.

I'm up for it. Means I'll have to boot into Windows if it's anything other than PokerStars though...

I'd be up for it. Not sure I want an all nighter though so maybe a time limit on play?!?!?

It can be a 10 player sit-and-go, should not take more than 1.5 hours

Sounds good to me. I can relive my gamblin' days in the deep south.

I would be up for this but have to check out Full Tilt...will keep an eye on this thread.

Could we do a Wednesday or Thursday evening?? Since it's only an hour or two it might make a nice weekday evening event?

Only reason I haven't confirmed is I'm thinking that's going to be a tricky time for me to commit too.

Like previously suggested, this isn't going to take all night, Mid week would work well for me, particularly Thursday anytime, I can do Wed also, any from 8:30pm on.

It's not that I don't want to, I just could not commit when I was unsure, and still am for Sat.

[QUOTE=Jimmeh;97992]I hear you dont know much about poker?

Well, short stacked Sit & go tournaments are high in luck factor..... and I'm sure other BOTL have an idea how to play too.. :biggrin1:

ACMCC
12-07-2010, 02:41 AM
Mid week might be a better option.... they only take 1-1.5hrs to play, 8.30ish works better for me.... would be better on Pokerstars or Microgaming network, I think for a $3 buy-in, reg fee is $0.30 (better than 25% as mentioned) but I don't mind if you guys prefere Full Tilt!! :smoke:

Mid week is better for me. It appears Full Tilt will run in Wine so I'm happy.

What do you want to do as far as the cigars go?

some suggestions:

we put in a stick each. if its a 6-player, winner takes 4 cigars, 2nd place 2 cigars. If its a 10 player, winner gets 6, second gets 3, third place keeps his own!

We could double the amount of cigars too, and go with 2 each.

good sugestion.

i dont mind what site we play on i only suggested ftp cos thats where i play. we can get a double stack game so it gives us a little more time and less luck involved

ACMCC
12-07-2010, 09:22 PM
A few suggestions.... if you set this up as a MTT it will start at a prescribed time with what ever numbers turn up, likely to be less than 10 in any case so it will play the same as a S&G, this is a bit more flexible, you could maybe have 20 min late reg! 1500 chips and 10min blind levels should be ample, not sure what kind of flexibillity is available on full tilt, pay outs as suggested - upto 6-2, upto 10-3 upto 20-4, as it's just for a bit of fun, doesn't matter if they end up on the shallow side, you need to decide whether this is UK only or open to all, bearing in mind postage etc. Cigar wise - Cuban's only or open to anything?

yiorgos
13-07-2010, 12:31 AM
I think it should be open for all. A cigar doesnt weigh that much, I'm sure it wouldnt be more than an extra or two to ship over to the far side of the pond.

As for Cubans only or open to anything, we have to bear in mind that not everyone can get Cubans... We are all grown men, I dont think anyone will send out dog rockets!

That sounds fine, maybe we can get something up for Thursday! I've not set up private games on ftp, so not sure how long it may take to sort, they have a unique blind structure with some extra levels so 6 mins may be fine, I can do the set up for MPN or stars, let me know if you would like to give those a try, otherwise ftp is fine if you can sort it alec.

Why not set something up and see how many turn up! you could do the first one buy in only if you like so those new to the software can try it out first....:smoke:

ACMCC
16-07-2010, 06:14 PM
Is any one still interested in a game?

daverave999
16-07-2010, 06:54 PM
I am! Would prefer in the week. Anyone else? ACMCC, if you set one up on stars, I'll be there.

ACMCC
16-07-2010, 11:38 PM
Ok Dave... if alec can't make mid week or is away, I'll set something up for Wednesday at 8.30pm, we will see if Yiorgos/Jimmeh/gt3911/Soft Top/moidoid/habana-habanos/SeanP can make it! That will make nine of us, it will be on PokerStars, works in Mac or can be played flash, players will need to sign up to an account, but as Stars is the best poker software and market leader in the world, it's a good site for any new players to start on, we can make this one a test game, min buy in is $1 + 0.10. we can see how this game pans out.

It's an MTT so numbers can be what ever, no smokes on this first one, so if any more BOTL want to join in, but are not quite sure how to play, it's only a $1.10 for a bit of fun, the more the better....

Will post up the details over the weekend...:smoke:

ok can i still play tho. ill need to register on poker stars

I'll try and download it, if people are still welcome, nothing like a good game of hold'em to pass the time away......

ACMCC

Everyone is welcome spooner...It's easy to download, just go to www.pokerstars.com (http://www.pokerstars.com) and follow the download link on the right, you need to reg an account as private games are real money only, I would not bother with the start up bonus unless you play all the time, you need quite a few points to release it! :smoke:


We are all set up ready to go....


PokerStars (Tourney ID 292508306)

Wednesday 21st July at 20.30 (late reg for 10 mins)

No Limit Hold'em

Buy-in $1+$0.10

1500 chips 15min levels (fixed by software at 15 min)

We can try this first to see how it plays, 10min is available I think by special request (other private games have it) but it's not available in the standard set up software. This is the test tourney so we will play this one just for the $ only, should take 2 hrs or so to play.

Everybody from UKCF welcome......

PM me or list your interest in the thread and I will pm you the password to register to the tourney in Pokerstars.....

Once you have registered please list your UKCF/POKERSTARS alias below...

ACMCC = nutdaddy :biggrin1:


















Good luck to everyone.

For those new to PokerStars, the tourney can be found in tourney/private and scroll down to Jul 21 at 20.30. UKCF

When we add the stick each the week after, I'll open a thread in the trade section so the password (and tourney entry!) is only visable to forum members, details of the cigar element will be in the new thread..:smoke:

ACMCC, got your PM but unfortunately I'll be away on Wendesday night this week and can't guarantee internet access so I'll probably not be playing. If I can I will but seems unlikely.

Have a good time if I can't make it.

Remember, there's a casino on the forum:

Under community, casino.

Not quite the same quality as other casinos but may be worth a go if you want a quickie with someone else on the forum.

Damn, completely missed this thread in amongst the five pages I'd got to wade through after my period of asceticism...

Would definitely be up for one of these. Any weekday evening should be good for me, though Thursday's probably the best in the long-run for me.
