Hi All,

Before for tournaments I set-up a game under the Private tab on Pokerstars and had to be pretty specific regarding times and dates. Also you had to have over a few VPP's to set a game up. This made things a little awkward as really we couldn't play if I wasn't about. Not anymore

Now on Pokerstars they have set-up an option called Home Games. I have set-up a club called CHAMPMAN0102 (can't put the rest of the url in as it's a no-no). This will allow us to run games essentially whenever we like and whatever time we like.

One of the HUGE advantages of this is the list of options. Setting the buy-in is the same but now we can chose:

Blind Structure i.e. the times between blinds going up
Payout: More or less to the winner or winner takes all
Starting chips: This one I really like. you can now start with up to 5k in chips which means players will get more value for money (except for Cafc )
Breaks: yes or no, great if it's a short game or people just wanna get on with it.
Game speed: The amount of timebank. Standard is 60seconds per hand, fast is 15seconds per hand. Good to keep the game moving
Players per Table: The option allows 9, 6, 2. 2 could be interesting as we could have heads-up grudge matches
Format: Freezout (regular), Rebuy (rebuys for players who bust) and the most interest one Knockout. In Knockout the player who's busts another receives a % of the pot (usually 20-25% of they're buy-in) - there is still a prize for 1st, 2nd . . . also.

There is also the option to schedule these. That means we can set-up a repeat game and whoever's about can play. It also creates a table in the lobby of the Club of past results. With this we can have our own league going without anyone have to kep track or how anyone is doing.


***Big Difference***


CASH GAMES - yup, we can now create our own cash game tables and set the blinds, min big blinds, game speed, game type, players per table.

The great thing about these is that they can remain open at any time (tournaments still need scheduling). It means that a couple of players can arrange to have a game at any time via the chatbox or w/e. It also means they can get up and leave when they feel like it.

It also helps to counteract the time differences we have with some members and this I can see being a plus.

Also if a player busts the money they buy in for they can rebuy and continue playing. I reckon this is where most grudge matches will take place .

One huge advantage of this is that it's totally private i.e. only club members can see the games (as opposed to before lurkers could come and watch which may seem unfair but as community is all about involvement )


This post is just information about the new set-up and what people would like created. New tournaments will be going on via the club even if we stick to the randomish set-up from before). The invites come to you through Pokerstars via my invites with the password so there's no need to send pm's or hide a password or any of that

Looking forward to hearing your thought's, ideas and requests


How to join:

Just go to the Pokerstars lobby and click on Home Games > Join A Club > Enter 53460 for the club code. When prompted for that password enter: tsigalko9

Evening lads!

How does this work then? I like a game of poker and play with mates now and again (Texas hold 'em) and also played online for a while but got addicted and started to lose money so removed from computer! (think I was on party poker)

Anyway, if someone gives me a brief on where, when etc, illtry and join when u can.

On hols again on Thursday for a week so if it's tonight or Wed then I am in but otherwise will join in again

Cheers

Dortmund - Bayern playing next week and after that CL for Bayern as well on a Wednesday, so doubt I make it. We'll see though.

Redknapp69
03-04-12, 06:50 AM
Do you go to Bayern games then Pat? Allianz is a top stadium and mad atmosphere behind goal!

Patinoz
03-04-12, 07:13 AM
nah man, munich is 470km away from where I study which makes it impossible during the week and even on the weekends it's a pain. I go once or twice a season with my dad and a friend of his but thats about it.

Redknapp69
03-04-12, 08:10 AM
So can you not play poker and watch TV at same time then?! :)

Dermotron
03-04-12, 08:33 AM
That was thinking behind Wednesdays, people are going to be watching UCL anyhow and more than likely on here too

Patinoz

Redknapp69
04-04-12, 08:56 PM
guys - first time on tonight

Is it Texas Hold 'em LIMIT?

Also, what are blind sizes?

Do we play in $ or £ - seems like you have to transfer money to play in that currency - (just had a test game - didn't do very well!)

Finally - approx how much cash shall i binbg to table? £10 £50 etc?

Patinoz
04-04-12, 08:59 PM
no limit, 1 dollar, gets you like 5000 chips, blinds start at 10 / 20 or so

only need 1 dollar, no rebuy


dermo mate, doubt i am even gonna be there at 11:30pm, gonna get pissed tbh, left my car at home

Redknapp69
04-04-12, 09:03 PM
OK - looking at my summary - I have $15 in dollars, £40 in £ and then I also have 1,000 in play money - i'll just join the table in 30 mins and see how i go from there!

I fuckin hate poker! Down to 6 players in a SnG, i raise in mid pos with A10S, get reraised all in........ and i make the call, muppet's got Q10! Happy days! Apart from the Q on the flop........ and then another Q on the turn......... fuckin suck out bastards

Mark
26-04-12, 10:57 AM
So it's on for tonight instead? Good stuff! Don't think I have anything planned.

Last night was obviously distracted by the football and by the time it finished, I decided to go bed instead.

Dermotron
26-04-12, 11:06 AM
Good stuff lads. I'll set it up to go at 9:30 GMT again so. 50c rebuy was good fun and a decent game last time, might go with that again

Mark
26-04-12, 11:21 AM
Why 9.30? Seems a bit late considering poker goes on a while at times.

Dermotron
26-04-12, 11:38 AM
Seemed to be a suitable time for all (possibly due to the football too). Can make it earlier if peeps want no hassle :ok:

Redknapp69
26-04-12, 09:11 PM
Is it still 9.30?

Mark
26-04-12, 09:24 PM

Patinoz
26-04-12, 09:25 PM

26-04-12, 09:27 PM
Yeah, rescheduled from last night (read earlier posts)

Mark
26-04-12, 09:28 PM
Actually, no sign of Derm online and it looks like there's no game scheduled. Just logged into pokerstars to check.

Patinoz
26-04-12, 09:33 PM
i can schedule a game in the club any time since he made me admin a while ago. yes or no? who would be in?

Mark
26-04-12, 09:34 PM
Me for sure now that I'm here. Redknapp too possibly? Could do with just 1 more reallya as any less than 4 is pointless imo.

Patinoz
26-04-12, 09:56 PM

Well played Derm - u bossed it tonight!

02-05-12, 10:56 PM
It was set for 2-5 players = winner take all.
It split the winnings if we got 6 or more.

Dermotron
02-05-12, 11:19 PM
It was set for top 20%, that usual pays out 1st and 2nd, usual split 70-30

Mark
03-05-12, 10:06 AM
Sorry I didn't get involved - I had the email saying you've set it up with rebuys so I didn't want to play. Hate rebuy games. If you're out, you're out as far as I'm concerned.

Bring back Poker nights btw! If my home internet EVER gets sorted, then I'll be playing again!

Redknapp69
26-09-12, 11:42 AM
Yep - I only played twice so have cash sitting on that account!

Dermotron
26-09-12, 11:44 AM
As I mentioned in a different thread in the Mods office, is seems wrong playing Poker when the sun is shining so now the weather is crap and its dark earlier we'll get some games going again soon :ok:

I'm thinking of some sort of 8 tournament series or something ;)

Patinoz
03-10-12, 03:52 PM
sounds all good, lets do it

Mark
03-10-12, 04:11 PM
Well my nets sorted now so I'm free :) I think Tuesday or Thursdays suit me best!

It's my boy's parent's evening but hopefully back in time.
Will register if I make it.

Mark

I'm in :ok:

Dermotron
17-10-12, 11:22 AM
1 rebuy, 1 add-on ok with everyone?

Think it should suit most :ok:

Mark
17-10-12, 11:23 AM
Hate rebuys personally but will go with the majority.

ebfatz
17-10-12, 11:28 AM
No rebuy from me if I play. Only got $3 in the account! :lol:

Dermotron
17-10-12, 12:01 PM
My thinking was some want to play higher. Some don't have the funds to for a bigger game. Some like rebuys, some don't.

1 rebuy, 1 add-on kinda covers everyone. Max can be spent is $6

Mark
17-10-12, 12:04 PM
What's an add-on mate?

Dermotron
17-10-12, 12:08 PM
It's an optional rebuy that can be bought after the 1st break/hour. So if we start with 2k chips and you've only got 1k at the break you might buy an add-on

Mark
17-10-12, 12:12 PM
Understood - Had never heard of it before. Either way, I'm just looking forwards to playing again :ok: Hopefully we can rekindle it and make it a weekly thing and attract new faces :ok:

Patinoz
17-10-12, 12:12 PM
i'd prolly leave the add-on out but don't really care. whatever format you guys pick is cool with me

Mark
18-10-12, 05:01 PM
Hope we're still on for tonight boys :ok:

Mark

ebfatz

Dermotron

Do mate, 4 is good. Janis might wake up too :lol:

Mark
18-10-12, 10:51 PM
Congrats to ebfatz on winning the tournament in the end - $14.00

After Patinoz put Derm out of the game, it was left to myself, Pat and ebfatz with me looking in danger of ending 3rd. Pat did put me out but I used the rebuy option for the first time in my life and ended up winning 5 all-in's against Pat and winning them all, eventually knocking Pat out into 3rd place.

With just me and ebfatz left in the game, I think he had about 10k and I had about 3k but I sooned turned it around to go in the lead with about 8k chips where we both went all in and had a full house only for his hand to be stronger with 7s whereas I had 4s.

I tried my best to rally back after that but with blinds going up and taking big chunks in my stack, I finally bowed out as ebfatz won :ok:

Patinoz
18-10-12, 10:54 PM
good game lads

ebfatz
18-10-12, 11:47 PM

Good stats!

I didn't realise I hadn't lost before - I knew I'd won the last two we played before I moved house. Gutted that's my winning streak over then :D

Dermotron

ebfatz
06-12-12, 08:42 PM
Possibly.
Depends on when as I'll be travelling around a fair bit.
Nearer to New Year is better for me but i'll go with the masses.

Redknapp69

Dermotron
06-12-12, 11:17 PM

Looking forward to the next one!

Mark
07-12-12, 09:57 AM
You've taken over my crown, ebz :D Think I had won 3 from 3 before you came along. BITCH! :D

Well done tho :ok: I lost my head a little bit last night when it was down to me, you and Derm. Fed up of seeing my chips whittle down, I decided to go all-in a couple of times. Won the first, lost the 2nd. Game over!

Never happens in the summer months really.
When the nights start drawing in, it'll probably happen again.

Dermotron

Anyone interested in a game soon? How about Monday evening?

ebfatz
06-11-13, 06:17 PM
Up for a game.
Mondays no good until after 9pm for me though.
Can't do Tuesday or Wednesday next week either.

Redknapp69
07-11-13, 02:22 AM
Could be interested - I have deleted the software from laptop tho :)

Mark
07-11-13, 10:03 AM
Same here, redders! Withdrew what money I had left and uninstalled :D

I'd be up for some games but definitely can't do Mondays. Other days are dependent on what shifts the gf is working too.

Janis89
07-11-13, 11:41 AM
I`m up for some poker. But can`t Mondays as got a network game then.

Oooh

Dermotron

I'm out!

Work Meeting.

Dermotron
07-11-13, 12:20 PM
Thursday no good for me, college.

Take it weekends are a total non runner? Sunday evenings always appealed as idle for me, rarely anything at all on.

Janis89
07-11-13, 12:25 PM
Any day of the week except Monday for me :ok:

ebfatz

...Thats what she said

Dermotron
05-02-14, 07:33 PM
Thats the worst thing about the Home Games on Pokerstars, no private sit and go's. think it be a lot more active if there was that choice since could fill up over a half hour instead of everyone needing to be there at a set time

2 German related poker stories and one quiet sad.

Johannes Strassmann was found dead in Ljubljana today http://www.pokernews.com/news/2014/06/johannes-strassmann-found-dead-in-ljubljana-18668.htm RIP :(

On a lighter note, Max Kruse has played a few tournaments and even final tabled one of a game he was playing for the first time!
