Poker Tournament

Postby FatLipMurphy » Mon Aug 19, 2019 6:29 pm

On Friday night, we'll be doing the traditional No Limit Texas Hold'em Poker tournament! Since Dave did a really good job describing the event last year, here's a copy/paste of his post from last time:

The tourney will begin at 9PM on Friday evening.

Don't know how to play? Enter anyway and you'll get all the help you need. This is your chance to learn! A copy of the basic rules will be available and poker hand cheat sheets will be provided for your reference. The game is just for fun, and an ideal opportunity to get to know other people at the event and share some beers and be in with a chance to start winning points, and trading them in for prizes!

THE RULES: (subject to change)

All players will have a starting stack with a total chip value of 2500.
Blinds start at 25/25 and will be raised every 30 minutes to the levels listed below.
There will be a maximum of 8 players per table.
Starting table and seat positions will be picked randomly.
Players will be moved between tables to maintain balance. The table with the most players will have one moved to the table with the least. The player directly behind the dealer button will be moved.
A bounty of 4 LAN HERO POINTS will be awarded to any player who knocks out a member of staff.


25 / 25
25 / 50
50 / 100
100 / 200
250 / 500
500 / 1,000
1,000 / 2,000
2,000 / 4,000
4,000 / 6,000
6,000 / 12,000

The blinds will never increase beyond this maximum.

At the start of Level 6 (500 / 1,000), there will be a short 10-minute break to allow for a "chip change". All chips with a value of less than 100 will be removed from the table and changed up to higher values. This reduces the number of chips in play at any one time and makes the later game move quicker. Staff will come around to all players and chip change each players stack. Smoke 'em if you got 'em.


1st: 8 points
2nd: 5 points
3rd: 4 points
4th: 3 points
5th: 2 points
6th+: 1 point
Bounty knock-out: +4 points
