I just want to point out that Iowa already has two seats in the year end Tournament of Champions.Just join the Wed night league and represent your region. Q3 just started last week and it takes your top 9 finishes out of 12 weeks.
I would be interested it run through Poker Stars.No I'm not talking about the Movie and Karate Tournament below. We already know who won. I was thinking about having a PSTARS TOURNAMENT for the PCF during this COVID19 Pandemic to see who is the Best of the Best on the PCF. I wanted to see who the best overall player was and where the best "Team" of players come from. Which State, Region, or Country, or Continent.

Many years ago I used to run Tournaments at my old home(This was Pre-Marriage) where my Tournaments kept growing and got up to 80 Players and full Tournament Director Software. I had 9 tables at my very last tournament. We had full catered food and all the snacks and non-alcoholic beverages you could drink. It was BYOB for those who wanted alcohol. I miss those days of running Tournaments. I've decided to take a shot at running a large virtual Tournament on PStars so we can have some fun during this unhappy time of being trapped in our homes..
The way I think I would like it to work. We have teams of 8 members from a specific State, Region, Country, or Continent. Each team would nominate a Captain. That Captain would be in charge of collecting the entry from all people on his team beforehand and would be in charge of PPFF to the Captain of the winning team and PPFF to the overall tournament winner. I was thinking 6 from each participant. There would be a 1 portion from each entrant that would go to the Tournament winner where it would be a winner take all format for all the 1s from everyone and they would be crowned the "Best of the Best" on here. Everyone's 5 Would go towards the Team who wins this "Best of the Best Tournament" as a team. Points would be awarded to each team member based on the level which someone busts out of the Tournament. Lets say you bust out in the first Blind Level you get Zero Points. If you bust out in the second level you get One Point. Third Level Two Points. Fourth Level Three Points, Fifth Level Four Points, etc.... The team with the most points when the tournament ends will get the Title of "Best of the Best" team. I'd have to calculate it manually. I would like to keep teams to players in close general geographic area. So lets find out who the Best of the Best are on here.
EDIt - I just thought about what if multiple teams tie in points. The Tie Breaker would be the team with the highest place finisher in the Tournament wins.
I set up a Club in the P*.NET site. Club #32770055 and setup a tournament for 4/11 at 10PM EST. We can change the date and time if needed. I didn't post the password yet.
What are everyone's thoughts on something like this? If everyone thinks this is the dumbest idea they've ever heard of then I won't do it. I was just trying to do something different.
What about thoughts on Team size? Would people start contacting locals they know on here and begin forming teams and post their teams on here with the members and where everyone is from on team?
What about Prizes? I thought about keeping it low so everyone can get in.
What about points for determining Best teams?
Running something like this was in my head for a while and I'm trapped in my home so it gives me more time to think about it. I want to hear suggestions and also if people like or don't like this idea. I promise I won't drag this out like the Chip Cage thread. If people don't like it I'll just kill the idea and never speak of it again.
Examples of Possible Teams I just thought of. These are just ideas of teams and not actual teams. Each area needs to form their own team.
