We have some details on the poker "game" (actually, mainly a tournament) in December in Dallas...
The one day that works best is Saturday December 22. CCM, BudaKleck and Full House Rob will all be in town from Moscow, Budapest and Houston. We are going to play at 5:00 at my "house" (actually, in the garage).
My plan is to get a multi-table tournament together. Probably like a $50 no-rebuy with a blind structure that wraps it all up in 4 hours. As quickly as the losers can form a new table, cash games will start. We easily have enough interest for 2 tables, maybe f0r 3. I plan to kick everyone out of the "house" at midnight, but I have a hunch that I'll be well lubricated and my gambling juices will be overflowing, so it will probably be a very late one.
If we get multiple cash games going, we can probably mix up the games between the tables (either have separate HE and O/8 tables or, more likely, have a high-stakes and a low-stakes table.)
If you are interested, and if you actually know me, I'd love for you to join in on the fun. If you aren't interested, then why do you read my poker blog? If you don't know me or know anyone that knows me, I am honored that you read my "poker blog" (actually, just a random subject blog), but you aren't invited to me house! I am also looking for some volunteers to bring some extra tables and/or chairs.
If you have played in my tournaments before, then you know they are lots of fun. I love to trick them up with little things like bounties and other odd prizes. I also favor flatter payout structures than most tournaments. Another trademark of "my" (actually, my and John's) tournaments is the trophy. To my knowledge, all 6 previous champions prominently display their trophies in their house. There will be a trophy. (Kim, let's talk).
There are two new rules to playing at my house:
If you complain about the music, I will kick you in the right testicle.
If you fail to bring a sweater to play poker in December in my garage (there will be a space heater), and you complain about being cold, I will kick you in the left testicle.
OK, now I can go back to rehabbing my "shoulder" (actually, just random mess of torn ligaments).
