Hosting a single-table bounty tournament, here's the details:



DATE: Saturday, Aug 8
TIME: 6pm - 10pm (structure should run around 4 hrs, give or take)
BUYIN: $40 (no rebuys or add-ons. $30 to prize pool, $10 for bounties)
FOOD: Will provide soda/water, byob. Plan to chip in $5 for pizza or Chinese for the group.


IMPORTANT NOTES: Game is non-smoking (inside & out) as my wife is highly sensitive to smoke. We also have two indoor cats. The poker room will be closed off with an A/C unit running, the cats are not allowed inside, no matter how cute they look. If you have allergies, plan to take something just in case.

We aren't playing for life changing money here, so please act respectful of others win or lose. Bad attitudes, berating other players, etc. will not be tolerated, keep it friendly (friendly ball-busting is encouraged, we are all grown-ups)

Starting Stack = 200,000
(500 x 12, 1K x 14, 5K x 16, 25K x 4)

Level Length 15 Minutes


500/1K
1K/2K
1.5K/3K
2K/4K
2.5K/5K

**color up 500 chips**

3K/6K
4K/8K
5K/10K
6K/12K
8K/16K

**color up 1K**

10K/20K
15K/30K
20K/40K
30K/60K
40K/80K


We'll be using the Championship Poker Series chips, switching to the higher denoms since the black 100 and blue 500 run too close and are easily mixed up (plus I REALLY want to get those beautiful 5K oranges into play). Game is structured to run around 4 hours.

Please let me know if you'd like a seat locked up. This is strictly a tournament event, no cash games will be played.

Do you not have a cash game due to space issues? Just curious.

It's for a few reasons:

1. I only have one poker table and a dedicated room for poker, wife would slit my throat if we spilled out into the rest of the house

2. I've tried doing cash and tourney in the same night before and it just hasn't worked (because some of my tourney players won't do cash)

3. My tournaments are structured as fairly deepstacked, so that means the bustouts are waiting too long for a decent # of players to make the cash game go

I was just curious.

Good luck, hope the event goes without a hitch. Live action report expected :)

There's a chance I will make it but don't count on me. I would still need to find another activity for the weekend to make it worth the drive.

Hard Rock Tampa is just 15 minutes away, weekend night cash games should be juicy! :D

It also appears moving forward I can't have smokers attend my games at all. it was pretty clear on the meetup group there is no smoking inside or outside. Two different people showed up reeking of smoke, and my wife noticed someone had turned on the fan in the bathroom and smoked in there, hoping that would cover it up.

These smokers think they're slick "they'll never know I smoked, I can cover it up!" Nope, you can't, and now you can't come. sigh.

OK, I just don't get this. One tournament for the night, no cash game to follow, just after 10pm -- why chop?
She and her boyfriend had somewhere to be and blinds were 30\60k and i had around 900k to her 700k and the prize money difference was 40 bucks so we just agreed to the chop
