Straddle: NL and PL games only. Optional Mississippi straddle from any position except the blinds. (UTG has first option to straddle, then button, then counterclockwise). Straddle has last action and option to raise. Action continues with person to left of straddle.
This will be the first time where the Shootout is not an open invitation game. Due to high demand (both online and local) this will start as an invite only event with invitations going to players from previous years. If I have open spots I will fill them with people who express interest, please PM me if you have not attended in the past and would like to attend. Preference will be given to long standing members who I’ve known over the years.
This is super early so many details are not yet ironed out. Please keep an eye on this thread for updates as they become available for events, guest sets, prizes, etc.
