Tournament Information:
  1. Tournament Directors: @RocAFella1 and @sat guru
  2. Start:
    1. Please arrive no later than 12:30PM so that we can do the buyin and take care of seating arrangements.
    2. 1PM sharp (people can be blinded in if arriving late)
  3. Buy-in and re-buy: $80
    1. $60 for 10,000 chips
    2. $20 for progressive bounty
  4. Payouts: First four places paid out (40%/27%/19%/14%)
  5. Rebuys: Unlimited for first four levels
  6. Bounties:
    1. Progressive bounty structure: Bounties will be $20 in $5 chips. When a person is knocked out 50% of their bounty (rounded up to the nearest $5) is immediately cashed out and the remainder is added to that person's bounty. E.g. A has their own bounty and an additional $15 in bounties for a total of $35 in bounties (i.e. 7x$5 chips). If B knocks A out, B immediately cashes $20 and B's total bounty is now increased by $15. If C has only their bounty ($20), then if D knocks C out, D would immediately cash $10 and $10 would be added to D's bounty. (Every rebuy adds an additional $20 bounty.)
    2. 2018 Champion Elimination Bounty: Additional $40 bounty on Battle of the Bay 2018 champion @sat guru to the player who busts me from the tournament. (If I rebuy I am not eliminated from the tournament.) . This bounty stands alone from the progressive bounty and is immediately cashed by the person who busts me out.
  7. Structure/blinds/BB Ante:
    1. BB Ante: Any ante goes into the pot before a player bets unless that player has less than 2BB. If a player has less than 2BB, then the player places the BB into the pot first with the remainder of that player's stack as the ante. (I.e. A has 1.5BB, then A bets 1 BB and 0.5 BB in ante. If A is called by 3 players then the maximum A can win is 4BB and the 0.5BB ante.) I appreciate that there are different approaches to BB antes which are debated at length elsewhere, this is the way we will be playing it.

I've added a cash set volunteers list in post #3, let me know what stakes the set can handle and if there is a need to leave early potentially.

All of my sets can handle the stakes NL, should be enough bank, just need a frac on the condado plaza cic, (it's a nice set to play with)

So it's unofficially a 2 day event. Mimosas and Mission burritos/tortas?
The next day IS St. Patrick's Day. A holy day of obligation in the old homeland. Not how we do it here. And pul-ease, no corned beef and cabbage references. That is an American dish. No good faring Irish fella would be caught dead eating that stuff.

On Sunday morning I want to wake up to a good fry with black and white sausages, a few rashers, some sausages from the butchers, and three eggs freshly fallen from the arse of a hen in the back garden. Oh, and some fried mushrooms and tomatoes with fresh brown bread straight from the oven dropped into the fry pan to capture the goodness that is left over. And a cup of Barry's tea. Now that is breakfast.
