PCF in ATX
12-14 Jan 2023

We're trying again! But this time, I actually have a house.​

I tried running this for this past January, but our house build was significantly delayed. Thankfully, we've been moved in for a few months now, so I'm gauging interest for a 2-3 table meetup. For now, I'm capping the list at 20. If there is high demand, I will bump this to 24. We'll have 2 main tables and a flex table as necessary. All tables will be 8-max.

Accommodations
I live within 20 minutes of the Austin airport (ATX) and there are numerous hotel options 15 minutes away.

Meats and Beers
Yes, I live in Texas and have a giant smoker. I also dry age my own meats. I will be cooking on Friday and Saturday.
  • Thursday: BYO-Doordash
  • Friday: Smoked burgers, hotdogs, brats
  • Saturday:
    • 60-day dry-aged ribeye, smoked whole and then cut and seared. Likely a 10-12 pound cut
    • St. Louis ribs
    • Buffalo chicken dip
Beers on tap:
Also expect a high-year scotch group-buy. If interested, DM me.

Excursions
We also live very close to COTA, which has a very nice karting facility. These karts top out at 55mph. With interest, we could put together a couple karting sessions for Friday, before gambling. @Schmendr1ck: there might be a height maximum.


Tables - Thurs/Fri/Sat
  • Main Table - Circus Games 8-max
    • Expect lots of big bet mix. Generally speaking, I expect this table to be $200 initial buy-ins... on Thursday. Full details to follow on format, but this table will be free-flowing and running bigger. We'll have at least 5 limit-specialistas present, so we may even splinter off on Friday for a limit-mix session. (@Payback will have ample opportunity to take all my money.) If you desire to gamble, you're in the right place.
  • Second Table - .50/1 NLHE 8-max
    • This will be a staple the entire weekend. $100 max buy-in or half the big stack. Of course, if the entire table agrees we can adjust limits and add in a game if desired, but otherwise the lowest common denominator will be all NLHE.
  • Flex Table
    • We'll open a third table as necessary based on player demands. Whatever the players want at this table is what we'll run, and we'll default to the same format as the Second Table.

Tournament - Saturday, 14 Jan 2023, 12pm
$100 Unlimited Re-buy NLHE/PLO
Unlimited re-buys through the first 90 minutes. Re-buy rules TBD, but likely either below half-starting stack or bust-to-rebuy only. Open to discussion
$20 from everyone's initial buy-in will go towards the meat and beer offerings.
Change games every 8 hands
Side-bets and last-longers are likely and highly encouraged.
Structure TBD - targeting 4-6 hours max.
@Darson offered his CPC set for the tournament.

Chipsets
  • Thursday - ??? (Guest sets welcome! DM me)
  • Friday - Empress Joliet Primaries
    • 40x 25c Slot Tokens (I found a MINT $10 roll of slot quarters on eBay, still in the wrapper)
    • 320x $1
    • ~1000x $5
    • 200x $25
    • 120x $100
    • 10x $500
    • 10x $1k
  • Saturday Cash - Windy City Bar & Poker Room
    • 100x 25c
    • 1200x $1
    • 1000x $5
    • 200x $20
    • 100x $25
    • 100x $100
    • Empress Joliet $500s and $1ks as warranted
  • Saturday Tournament - ??? (DM me as well if interested in bringing a tourney set)

And of course... SASSY
What is Sassy, you say?

Sassy is a 6-card stud hi/lo variant played with a button. The button must ante for the entire table, and it also determines draw order for the post-6th street draw (see further).
First betting round - dealer ante, dealt 4 cards. Pick your 2 down cards, 1 up card, and discard the remaining card. Bring in based on lowest card shown. 4th/5th/6th streets are all played normally.

After 6th street, all players are given the option, in order starting with the left of the button, to either change out exactly 2 cards or stay pat. This occurs by initially declaring ‘Sassy’ or pat in sequence. Then, after all players have declared in order, starting with the first player to have announced ‘Sassy’, that player may discard any two cards and receive two new cards. These cards may be 2 down, 2 up, or 1 and 1--there are no limitations here, but they are a one for one swap, i.e. you will always end with 2 down and 4 up and you cannot make down cards up cards (and vice versa).

After all players have exchanged cards, a final betting round is played. This is a 6 card hand at showdown and all normal stud hi/lo showdown rules apply.

We also play this as Sass-dacey, Sass-deucy, Sass-dugi, etc. Really any way to get as much money in the pot as possible. 3rd 4th and usually 5th streets are capped. Yes, these are very special degens.

This is the same weekend of my tournament of champions. Can you waitlist me in the event the (my) date changes?

SWEET! Was a little disappointed you had to cancel last year, but I know how it goes. My son was building in Austin at the same time and kept getting delayed.

Please count me in, and if possible, I'd like to also invite my son who is not on PCF. Since he will be my lodging when I'm there, seems only fair to give him an invite if possible. He's played a couple of times at the game that @nlhenerd hosts if you need an objective PCF reference.

As someone who has been begging for another Texas meetup, please let me know if I can help in any way.

I’m in for Friday night and Saturday all day. Kids will be in school by mid Jan so will have to see if I can attend Friday during the day events. Thursday night is also likely and I can bring a guest set.

That’s the same weekend as VMX in Orlando - the largest veterinary conference in the world. Maybe I can get them to reschedule :rolleyes:
VMX Remote?

Yeah--it was 14 months from contract to closing. You guys are both welcome!

98% in. My company has an office in ATX so I could likely swing it.
Awesome!

Put me down for this as well
Done

I would like a seat at well. Thanks!
And done

Not much happening in January that I know of and work will probably be slow.
Unless something unforeseen comes up, I’ll plan on riding down.
Look forward to meeting you.
Driving down from DFW I take it?

So glad you're finally settled. Gotta break in that new house :).

I look forward to it! In!

Depends if a couple of the deals I'm working on right now hit or fall through. if 1-2 hit I'm likely going to have a crazy January and wouldn't be able to make it unfortunately.
Do you want to be waitlisted just in case?

If you think there might be any interest in a micro stakes cash NLHE or PLO at any time - maybe late in the evening when a few of us are broke or drunk - I have a couple different sets I can bring for nickel / dime, 0.10 / 0.20 or 0.25 / 0.25 blinds.
