Default Private Draw Tournament

With PokerRoom's latest update, players now have the ability to set up private tournaments without emailing support, very similar to PokerStars. I bring this up because in addition to holdem (*yawn*), omaha, omaha/8, stud, and stud/8, five card draw is a choice. I would like to set up a five-card draw tourney for my friends to play in and would like some feedback as far as a good time and some of the options we have.

The lowest buy-in we can have is $5+0.50. I want it to be a small buy-in social event. It is possible to have a rebuy event, but I want to avoid that for this tourney.

We can play fixed limit, pot limit, or no limit. Fixed limit will give newbies the most play, but will last a while and is kind of boring. No limit will go the quickest. Pot limit is the best format for skillful play.

We can have either a "turbo", "regular", or "slow" structure. I don't know exactly how this works on PokerRoom, but I'd suggest "regular".

For prizes, we can have "flat", "normal", "steep", or "winner take all". I suggest "winner take all" because I want all of your money [img]/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] Actually I'd suggest "flat" for a social game.

This won't be like the "Weird Poker" series that I pulled the plug on. I'm just looking for a one-time fun little event.

I am in - depending on the day and time of the day it gonna happen. I live in Brasil @ GMT+3 now GMT+4 due to Daylight Summer savings. But weekends are usually OK. I'll bring the beer and peanuts - and please have at least one ashtray at the side table! [img]/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

By the way I have no account at pokerroom so if there is any member here with a bonuscode and/or referral please let me know before I download/subscribe.
Thanks,

Does Poker Room have 5 draw cash games and everything?

Nevermind, I don't know why I ask, I'll just go download the software.

How are the games on PR? Maybe I'll deposit $100 to work on my five draw game.

Anyway, if I get some cash on PR I'll be in for a tourney for sure.

More players than paradise. More 'active' limits. Worse software.

Make it a limit tournament. PL has too much luck to it, (it basicly boils down to who has the best hand preflop).

Thanks for the feedback everyone. I've decided on the following:

$5+0.50
Pot-Limit Draw
Normal Blind Structure (1500 starting chips)
Flat Pay-outs
5 Players/Table

November 27 (next Sunday)
Starts at 6PM Eastern Time
50 player max
Look for "Anna1978's Tournament" (that's my nick on PokerRoom)
Password: bayes

If this is succesful, we can play some other tourneys in the future. Although I prefer PL to limit in draw, I would like to play a limit draw tournament in the future (as per bygmesterf's suggestion).

I apologize to those who won't be able to play next Sunday. I'll try to have some other draw tourneys in the future, or you can just make your own!
