What: Inaugural Jersey PCF Meetup - The Barrel House Battle Royale - NOW ONLINE!

When:
June 26-27, 2020 August 8th, 2020

Where:
Virtual! Poker Mavens & Discord (Video Chat)

The Important Stuff:

The golden rule applies above all in my house, be it virtual or live. These meetups are meant to be fun – so please leave any drama at home, there’s no room for it here. Anyone in my house - anyone – deserves full respect, and anyone showing a blatant lack of respect is out, period.

All poker for this event will be on my Poker Mavens server, which can accommodate up to 100 players. You will need to create an account prior to the meetup, it's really easy and takes about 5 minutes, all you need is an email address to validate the account. The site is SSL secured and the server resides on an amazon web server, it's been up and running since early April for my private games without any issues. The main event freeze-out tournament will start at 4pm EDT, and I’ll have cash tables available all day as well. Cash games will, for the most part, be lower stakes; there will always be a 10¢/20¢, $40 max buy-in NLHE game available. I will post a list of cash games below in a few days, if there are any particular requests let me know! There will be no fee or rake taken at any time!

Participation via video chat will be available through Discord and highly encouraged! I have created a server for the meetup with a Lounge and numerous tourney tables . Each person can independently control where you "sit" - so you can move between tables or to the Lounge whenever you'd like. I would ask that players try to stay at the table your sitting at in Mavens as much as possible to minimize cross chatter. Your Mavens table number appears in the window title area when you're playing.

To participate in the video chat, you need to download the Discord software from Discord.com and register a free account. It's really easy and quick to do! Please do this in advance of the tourney!

Payments for tournament entry and funds for cash games will be conducted either through paypal (friends and family) or Venmo.
I will send out PMs to all those playing with additional information, including links to the Poker Mavens and Discord server links as well as my payment information. All funds need to be sent prior to the game.

Thanks Dan! Would love to have the Maryland / PA PCF contingent make the trip, I had a blast at @krafticus 's Maryland meetup this summer. While I've been toying with the idea of hosting a meetup for a while, I spent the 2 hour trip home from Mark's in full on planning mode this event :)

Some quick points:
  • This will be a 2 day event, Friday & Saturday - cash games both days and a NLHE main event tourney starting Saturday afternoon (starting time and entry $ TBD)
  • While I'm all for a little degeneracy, I'd like this to more of a social event for chippers than a bankroll buster. Cash games will be lower stakes, there will always be a 25¢/50¢ $100 max / half the big stack NLHE game running. I'd also like to have a "circus light" instructional/fun table on Friday afternoon/evening for those who'd like to dip their toes into more mixed game, then maybe get a $2/$4 limit dealer's choice circus game going later on, depending on what the crowd wants to play. I'm shooting to tailor this meetup similar to MiM or this year's Maryland meetup.
  • If top priority is this being a social event, second priority is cool poker chips. I have enough nice sets to run all the games that will be played all weekend if needed, but I 100% don't want to do that. The main event will be on my Barrel House CPC tourney set, and I figure we should probably get the PNYs in play at some point - but other than that, I'm very open to having lots of guest sets - especially customs and/or group buy chips!
  • Meeting commemorative chips are being designed...
  • The event is open to all well established PCFers and chippers. I won't draw a sand in the line with regards to # of posts or member duration, but this event is for folks active in the chipping community. Unless of course you're an outsider with Isle of Capris $1s to sell, then you can come too. :whistle: :whistling::whistle: :whistling::whistle: :whistling::bag:
  • I'm 95% sure that attendance will be limited to 20 players. I can fill in spots with locals, but I really don't want to, I'd like this to be a PCF / chipper only event. @CantSpellPoker , @Phish1321 & @theewpice "no locals" doesn't apply to you guys, you're all coming :ROFL: :ROFLMAO:
  • Please post in this thread if you're interested in attending. I'll be looking to lock down the final attendance list next spring.
  • Food TBD, will likely be some good Jersey / NY pizza, subs, hoagies or Italian food. Any requests feel free to shoot me a PM.
  • I believe my family will be around during the event, and as such I do not think I will have any spots available in the house for folks to crash. There are a few hotels in the area within 10-15 minutes.
  • I'm located about an hour south of midtown NYC, an hour north of the jersey shore area beaches, and a little under two hours north of Atlantic City. I picked June for the meetup because it's a nice time of year to visit the area and either hit NYC for some sight seeing or AC to get your degen on full time.
I'll update the OP with more info and details during the year. Chime in with any other questions!

I am a very big "MAYBE" so far out. Have a little one to worry about and I don't know what life will bring in the next year between weddings, vacations, and such. I'm super local and would love to stop by for a cash game on one of the days.

While I'm certainly not asking anyone for a firm commitment 10 months in advance, I will reserve adding anyone to the attendance list that's really unsure if they can make it. I completely understand, I'm usually in the same boat with my job and family obligations, for past meetups I have usually expressed interest up front and asked to be added to the list a few months out when my schedule solidified.

Long story short, if you're interested and have better than a 50/50 chance of making it, I'll put you on the list. If not, interest is noted and I can add you to the list down the line when you get a better idea if you can make it.

Definitely interested! Does someone close have a place to crash, or anyone up for a room chop?
