    A member thought it might be fun to do a poker tournament in which all entrants pay a small fee (only a few dollars).
    You don't have to worry about lag. It's all Poker :)
    Winner takes all.

    So it'd be like this.
    If you want to participate pay $2-5 to the keeper (me)
    Appear at the tournament
    Everyone plays through a few game (I'm thinking 3)
    Top players play vs each other or top player from the 3 rounds is declared the winner.
    Winner is awarded all entrants fees (so if there are 8 players who paid $3 each, then you get $24)

    Someone will have to help me hammer out these rules as I'm no poker expert. Good fun and real winnings.

    If it goes well we can host a match on a regular basis. I know some players lag out of poker matches, but it's at least a lot more fair than headshot lag ;)


    This would all take place through paypal. If you can't use paypal PM me what you can do and I'll see what magic tricks I can pull out of my hat lol

    Well 3 people are interest so far. I think a table has a max of 6 players.

    I'd sponsor players but it'd be unfair to others.

    Just updating that I have not forgot about this. I just had a recent issue with paypal, and I didn't want to start this and run into trouble.
    Everything should be fine by today, so i'll start this up by the end of the week and get a date by then.

    Paypal :( it doesnt like me right now haha. I sent money to someone a while ago and the froze my account for investigation :(

    I can use another paypal account from a family member if needed.

    one of the participants is on gmt +1
    I was thinking of holding this next Saturday at (PST)/ 7PM (EST)

    That is not the final time. I have to double check everything. I dont want the guy being up at 1am lol. Trying to make it fair.

    Yeah there were 2 others who actually committed but due to some personal issues I was unable to show up and seriously promote the event. A lot of people said they were interested but only 2 'put their money where their mouth is'.

    I'll be more than happy to host this before the end of the month.
