summary of M. Haven posts re tourney

Zoo vs SS vs Touns NLHE Tourney. Feb 5th. TruePoker. 8.30pmEST


Basically, this is a normal Multi-Table Tournament, held at TruePoker.com. It is a $20+$2 No Limit Hold'em game, although because of various bonuses that True gives participants, most players only pay $10 each.

To make it interesting, and to give the winning forum's posters bragging rights over the other forums, at the end of the Tourney I allocate points to each player according to where he finishes; the points are added up; and the Team with the highest number of points is declared the winner of the Team Event. (There is one overriding Rule: "We are all gentlemen." Obviously, there must be no softplay of one's own team-mates, and no chip-dumping to one's own team-mates, during the Tournament. It is only after the Tournament is over that the Team Points aspect comes into play.)

These Tournaments are amazingly good-natured fun but also intense poker. It is joked that the flop percentage has dropped to zero on occasions. (Maybe that isn't a joke, in fact.)

Please join us at the tables - our intention is to start a League in due course, and this Tournament is helping to pave the way for that exciting ambition.

Good luck to all who play in her.
