QUICK TL;DR
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.

 
 
 
Poker Gather
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.

 https://dl.dropboxus...8724127/pkr.jpg
 

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)
 
 
 
 
Game 
We'll play tournament of Texas Hold'em, No Limit.
Starting chips: 2000
Blinds start at 15/30
No re-buys.
 
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' 

 

 
Prize structure
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.
 
 
Finally
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!

You can apply here, or register on Pokerstars and not show up at all, there's no commitment whatsoever. 

The tournament will just start without you. Late Registration is even available up to 10 minutes after the start of the tournament.

 

Of course I'd prefer if everyone applied and registered to the actual tournament a couple days in advance.

 

 

And yeah, we did a poker tournament at Campzone but Ed, being the shithead that he is, kicked me out when the game turned out full. (Eat a dick Ed) 

We'll definitely do a bigger one at Campzone as well. Also this Freeroll thing is supposed to be a one-time thing. We hope that we can have small-stakes tournaments in the future with you guys, because it's fun as hell. :)

 

The reason we're doing this is because:
1. We want to play Poker with the community
2. Poker is not fun without stakes

3. We knew not a great many people would join if it required them to deposit real money.

That was fun guys. :)
I hope we can do that again soon, except that people pay their own buy in. 
I was hoping to do this on a monthly basis, how many of you would be okay with playing regularly for like a $1 buy in? 
So far, me, Ed, Imprez, SK, Gio, Loadingue, Mornedil, and ManyPopes have expressed interest in that.

I was going to register but I had already made plans for that night.

 

If this becomes a monthly thing I like to join in.

But don't go taking it out in public and don't go around shoving it down other people's throats...

I think I'll keep it at Tuesday nights, same time, if that's alright with you guys?
Friday and Saturday nights people tend to have other things planned.

 

If no one has any comment on that I'll go ahead and auto schedule a monthly tournament, like every 2nd Tuesday of the month.
