Who's up for one

Say $10 or $20 buy-in, give out $20 or $40 in chips, tournament style, top 5 winners take $$ home.

I have a set of clay chips, but that's obviously not going to be enough. So those of you with chips, please bring them. And if you have ****ty bicycle chips, don't. I'm talking good casino type clay chips.

Now my question to past UVA attendees or cheater/old_skul:

Is there a place to play? We would need multiple round tables that seat about 6-8 people.

You might could do that in the bar early afternoon, it's pretty empty in there, and they have decent size tables.

thing to think about:

1. running a multi-table tourney during the LAN will be hard, especially with LAN tourneys going on. talk to tom, mark, or yankee about when you would have time to do it and not interfere and let everyone play who wants to

2. hotel gambling policy. they may not be happy with a bunch of people taking over their bar to gamble illegally. you may not be ale to multi-table simply because it will draw too much attention from the hotel staff

3. different chip sets combined to cover a multi table tourney may be a pain in the ass

just trying 2 help

should make it a bigger buy-in. im pretty sure everyone who can afford the total costs of the lan could afford $50 on a poker tourney.


would be amazing if you got a good amount of people to play so that the 1st place dude walked home with a few thousand dollars... ultimate bragging rights :o

alternatively

everyone who just paid the total costs of the lan may not want to drop another $50 on a poker tourney they most likely won't win

Have you considered that some people are spending most of their free money on this LAN? Wrong logic there.

i think everyone knows in a "big tourney" with a nice prize on the line, anything can happen. take a look at the 2003 WSOP :o



seems it would be more luring to spend 50 and possibly win thousands than spend 10 bucks and maybe win a few hundred ;(



could be wrong though

1.2. i plan on talking to tom and mark about it.

3. if people bring different chip sets, i plan on keeping one chipset per table 6-8. Each chipset should be able to cover it's own table if we give out $20 per person in chips. If this tourney is feasible, then i plan on doing pre-signups so I can split tables accordingly, and winners from each table play, etc.

btw, if you can make this happen, I'm down

no, if this goes down I plan on keeping buy-ins at $10 or perhaps $20 max, depending on our chip count. It will not be going higher because I plan on this being a casual fun alternative to playing computer games for the LAN-goers, not a moneymaking opportunity for hardcore poker sharks.

People are willing to drop $10 or $20 to have some fun playing poker, even if they are beginners or just terrible. $50 is too hefty a sum.

ok so you're doing a shootout tourney

neat, i think those are a better test of skill

yes, they tend to work the smoothest with the least amount of hassle anyways.

plus if this goes down, it might encourage a few more people to sign up, since they now have something scheduled to do besides sitting in front of a computer.


edit: Just thought of something?

Does anyone live in the area? We could do this at 2 people's houses (split the group initially) or something if a venue at the LAN is not possible.
