Weekly Poker Games vs The Elite! (Thursdays at 8PM ET)
« on: January 23, 2017, 10:30:19 pm »
The likes of Grav, Luke, Lockwood, Flicker, myself etc are planning on playing home games on Pokerstars on a routine schedule. Post here if you're interested in playing 9-person games (or more!) for $5 a piece. My plan for money is...

1. Pay me the buyins, and I pay out the winnings to each player. ($45 for 9 people, payout is $30, $10, $5)
2. If we play weekly, we can do monthly payouts and I can track who owes/who gets paid in a spreadsheet.

Thoughts?

FIRST GAME:
THURSDAY, AUGUST 9th at 8:00 PM Eastern Time

its just the time that me and jimbo and the few people we talked to wanted and its more important for us to just get it started and keep it rolling for now than to try and find some perfect time that accommodates everyone around the world at once (which keeps this idea dead forever). when more people join and theres demand for other days/times we will def expand

I'm the one who pushed Thursday, yeah. It's pretty much a lock that Fridays/Saturdays I'll probably have something going on, as will most people imo. Thursdays here are boring and Grav/myself agreed that it's a great time especially during our Thursday Night Football games.
