2012 FOH International Poker Tournament Registration Thread.


Recommended Posts

Sunday 20th of May (8PM Brisbane Time) commences out 2012 FOH International Texas Holdem Tournament!

The Sunday (Brisbane Time...we are a day ahead of most of the world biggrin.gif) is reserved for Aussie members as they have trouble playing midweek midday. If there is enough demand from the Aussies we will have 2 rounds on that day.

The competition will be played at the same time each day (knockout rounds at 11am local time/9pm NY time) and run over 5 days. I will work out a tournament schedule (schedule to be completed 13th May) once you have registered on this thread your intent to play.

Please nominate your preferred play day on this thread. The rounds will run

  1. Saturday NY Sunday 20th May Brisbane 8pm Aussies Only
  2. Sunday (NY)/Monday 8pm Brisbane time/9pm
  3. Monday (NY)/Tuesday
  4. Tuesday (NY)/Wednesday
  5. Wednesday (NY)/Thursday.

From the registrations (on this thread) I will work out the round robin knock our comp. Final date for registration of the comp is Sunday the 12th of May . I will post the scheduled knock out rounds on the 13th of May.

This thread is simply for you to register. The knock out rounds normally run for 5 days so please advise in your post which days (if any) you prefer and I will try. Remember it kicks off 9pm NY time each day. You will only play one knockout round.

Top two from each table will move to the final, date of which will be advised after discussing it with the finalists.

From that point the rules are:

1. Each registered player is to look at the tournament schedule and advise if they can make it. Let me give you a hint....make it. If you need to be moved to a different day e-mail me [email protected] and I will do my best to accommodate.

2. The times are unchangeable.

3. Each day of the tournament you are nominated for, there will be a PM to you as a reminder. Proceed to the Poker room 10 minutes before game time. I will confirm you are there through the poker room SHOUTBOX. DO NOT SIT AT THE TABLE UNTIL I CALL YOU TO DO SO.

4. Late arrivals will be ruled out. There are no second chances. Sorry Gentlemen, we are working with unsympathetic software.

5. This is a winner take all competition. Where there are 5 or less players on a knockout table, the winner only will progress to the final. Where there are 6 or more players in the knock out table the top two from that round will make the final. You are to advise on the forum who the player/players progressing to the final are.

6. I suggest you play a few hands before the competition starts. Each day at 11am M-F local time there will be a practice round.

7. It is up to you to make allowances for time differentials. We are working on NY time and Brisbane time. Go to World clock etc to ensure you know when the game will start and try to be on the forum 30 minutes prior.

8. I will advise all participants of who is in the final

9. I don't intend to lose :-D

Please Register and I will see you at the tables!

Prize? $350 USD $500 AUD cigar voucher.

***Top 2 from this tournament will automatically qualify for our Special Christmas tournament****

We will run 5 of these comps throughout the rest of the year.

Good Luck to all competitors! :D

El Presidente

I would like to be in on this!! For the Sunday 20th (Aussie time) if possible. I'm all signed up for the poker-ma-bob thing now, so I'll familiarise myself with the layout before the day, make sure I don't embarrass myself!
