    Poker

    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

    *think* i should be OK for both of those days although I'm having my brother over on Friday. He may well be in bed by 9-ish though.

    Yeah, I'll be in.
    To be honest I haven't even installed Pokerstars since I got a new laptop at Christmas.
    Will do so and get back involved.

    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.
