We're hosting a private Poker gather on PokerStars, you can join for free, but winners get real money!
Sound good? Cool, read the thread.
Hello everyone! Recently, I've been playing a lot of online poker with Ed and Imprez, and having a lot of fun.
We thought it'd be fun if we did an LDT PokerStars homegame, so we can have an LDT exclusive poker tournament, like that PKR one we did.
To make this a little bit more interesting for you guys, we decided to sponsor this tournament with real cash prizes!
Each of us has put $5 of our own money towards this tournament, for a total prize pool of $20. (Because Gio also put in $5)
In the future, we hope to have people pay their own entry fees for some regular friendly low-stakes poker. =)
(Stakes are necessary for people to take the game seriously)
We'll play tournament of Texas Hold'em, No Limit.
Starting chips: 2000
Blinds start at 15/30
29th of December, 21:00 CET (Dutch time)
Please register well in advance.
How to join
1. Getting PokerStars
First,if you haven't got one already, you need a PokerStars account and you need to download the PokerStars client at https://www.pokerstars.eu/.
(Yes of course it's free)
2. Joining the poker club
Once you've got that sorted, you need to join the LDT Community poker club.
To do that, open the PokerStars client and find the 'Home games' button on the right, you'll probably find it under 'More'.
Click the 'Join a Poker Club' button
Enter the Club ID number: 2034767
Enter the Invitation Code: urbanddpat
Next you'll have to wait for me to accept your application.
Be sure to let me know if your PokerStars name is one I wouldn't know belonged to you.
3. Registering for the tournament
In the 'Home games' window, you'll be able to find the tournament scheduled under 'My scheduled tournaments'.
Simply click on the tournament and press 'Register'
The exact way the money will be distributed among players is dependent on the amount of applicants.
I propose the following:
3 to 12 players | 1st place $12, 2nd place $6, 3rd place $2
12+ players | 1st place $10, 2nd place $5, 3rd place $2.50, 4th place $1.50, 5th place $1
In addition, for the early dropouts, there is a losers' bracket tournament scheduled 45 minutes after the main tournament.
The winner of that tournament will receive a copy of Postal 2 on Steam.
Cash prizes will be awarded, in order of preference:
- By purchasing a game or market item on Steam and transferring it
- By PayPal transfer
- By PokerStars money transfer
Oh yeah, hopefully needless to say: we reserve the right to withhold prize money as we see fit if we believe you haven't been playing fairly.
Don't forget that the prize structure, game settings, and even time and date of the gather are up for debate!
Let me know if you have any questions, suggestions or comments.
There's no real maximum amount of players, so everyone who applies can join.
If you've registered, or plan on doing so, please let me know that you're joining and what your PokerStars username is.
I will not accept usernames I don't recognize into the Poker Group!
Finally, because there's real money involved, you're only allowed to participate if you've been with LDT since before this thread.
I hope to see you in the game!
