Bobby's Poker Night: Season 1

edited January 10 in Gaming

I'm going to start running Poker Nights weekly for the foreseeable future. I'm going to call now through the end of June "Season 1" with the first event being Saturday January 2, 2021.

Each player will start out a 50,000 chip (c) stack at the beginning of the season. Your chips will be tracked in a Google spreadsheet which will track all additions and subtractions from your totals. Participation chips will be given out for each event. Details for each event will be listed here and spammed to discord.

Season 1 Stack Spreadsheet

Standard Events will be Texas Hold 'Em, minimum 2 hours with 25c small blind / 50c big blinds. You do not have to bring your entire stack into the game but there will be a minimum amount to bring in along with a minimum amount of play time to earn the participation chips. Participation bonuses will be added to player stacks at the end of each event.

If a player runs out of chips at a table, this will count as them getting up from the table. If they wish to rejoin, they will be put at the end of the wait list and anyone at the beginning of the wait list will be prioritized for the seat. If a player runs out of chips during the season (or their season stack is lower than 10,000c), they can borrow up to 10,000c at the beginning of each event and this will count as a negative in their stack if they do not play it back.

The player with the biggest stack at the end of the season will be given a prize (to be determined)

Games will be held at https://www.pokernow.club/
This is a free website, just click and go. When you join the table (link for event tables will be posted at the beginning of each event) you enter in your name and starting stack. You must use a name that is generally recognizable to others (such as your forum or Discord name). The starting stack that you enter will be verified by me before you are allowed to sit down.

Event #1: Saturday January 2nd, 5:30p / 6:30m / 7:30c / 8:30e
Minimum stack: 10,000
Minimum Playtime: 1 hour
Participation award: 10,000
Notes: This is designed as an introductory event. If you bring 10k and play for an hour, you guarantee to at least break even with the Participation bonus at the end of the night.
Event 1 Table (Archived)

There is a limit of 10 spots at a table. Reservations will be taken from the time of the announcement until the end of the event. Any players over 10 will be considered a wait list and invited to sit in once a spot opens.

Helpful notes:

  • You can sit down at any time the table is open (and there is a spot open)
  • You do not have to put all your money on the table. There is a minimum to qualify for the event bonus but you can bring in as little or as much as you want whenever you sit down. There are strategies for both small stacks (mitigate loss) and large stacks (scare players with your stonks).
  • You do not have to participate in all events. There are participation bonuses for each event but there is no penalty for skipping any.
  • You can leave at any time. Lost or Made enough for the night? Step away and prepare for the next event. Again while there is a minimum play time to gain the event bonus, there is no penalty for leaving at any time.
  • Say what you want, or nothing at all. We'll be hanging out in Discord but you don't have to say anything. Once you are comfortable with the flow, you don't even have to if you don't want to. At a casino table it is not uncommon to see straight faced players with sunglasses on. This is so they are the same no matter what their hand is. Tells are huge in in-person poker. There is the option to stream yourself at the poker table, this is not necessary for most events (Including event #1) but there will likely be at least one video mandatory event.

I'll add more info here as it comes up. Feel free to reply here or hit me up on Discord with any questions.

    The table for event 1 is full!
    Kelso will be the second on the wait list. As soon as a spot becomes available at the table, I will reach out to the wait list to join in.
    Don't hesitate to let me know you want in even if you can not participate this week. There will be lots of opportunities!
    Also, you can join in and spectate at any time. Feel free to come hang out with us while we play. The only thing that we ask is for only players at the table speak while there are cards dealt.

    Event #2 - Sunday Sit and Go. January 10 12p / 1m / 2c / 3e
    Minimum stack: N/A
    Bonus Minimum Playtime: 30 min
    Participation award: 1420
    I'll open the table to sit at 11:30p / 12:30m / 1:30c / 2:30e and start play 30 min later and it will be open for 3 hours. Take a sit and play as long as you like. Blinds will be the same as last week 25/50 for the duration.
    Seats are first come, first served for this event. Hit me up to be added to the wait list if the table is full. Running out of chips counts as getting up and sitting back down will require going through the wait list.
    The logs on PokerNow are pretty amazing. I'll be able to track what you started and ended with and how long you played so we don't need to monitor that during the event (Other than if you are playing for the bonus, you need to make sure you play for the amount of time listed). I will update the Stacks spreadsheet after the event.

  • RyderRyder Kalamazoo, Mi Icrontian

    Would like to be on wait list, I probably won't be home by 3, but likely before 5. Would sit if seat available then.

    I'll clarify
    Seats are first come, first served for this event once the table is open. Hit me up to be added to the wait list if you get to the table and it is full.
