PostSubject: Weekend Poker Run   Thu Nov 07, 2013 12:41 am

So OK the people at poker stars have thrown a monkey wrench into our Saturday showdown game.  We can no longer send the 5K for the big hands.

So I have an idea for a new game to play on Saturdays, I call it Poker Run.  

The rules are simple.  I will have a deck of cards on my desk on Saturday.  Every time any player wins with a five card hand (straight or better) they will get to draw a card from that deck.  Every player will be able to draw up to five cards from the deck and I will let them know as we go which card they drew.  At the end of the night the person with the best poker hand made from those cards will meet me at the payout table and will win 20K chips.

In addition, if the person who wins is on a team, they will get a bonus 5 points added to their tank score for the night to help their team.


Tell me what you think.

Note that I have changed the Saturday game.  Those that were signed up will have to get back in the new game.

Hope this works and it adds some fun to the game.

Remember to let me know when you reach the showdown with a straight or better, Yes quads count as a five card hand.

I will draw a card for you and let you know what it is. Note, you must go to showdown for your hand to count and you can only draw up to 5 cards total.

Let's see if I can keep up with you guys,

And the winner is ...

We did not have a lot of participants last night. Hopefully that was not because it was a new game. Remember all you have to do is let me know when or if you win with a Straight or better. Then I do the rest.

Anyway the winner of last night's Poker Run was Howitzer2007. He only got to draw one card, but that card was an Ace of diamonds. That was the highest card drawn.

Howie will be invited to join me at the payout table for 20K free chips. In addition he won a bonus of 5 Tank points to add to his score. Sadly Howitzer is not on one of our 3 teams yet, so it will not make a difference.

If you enjoyed the game we will do it again next Saturday.

Tell me what you think.
You are so creative! I think it is pretty cool. Now pay attention to the chat darn it or at least talk even when we aren't discussing "beavers".

Just a reminder that we will be doing the Poker Run tonight. Come on and play. Remember all you have to do is let me know when you reach a showdown with a 5 card hand (straight or better). I will draw a card for you.

Best poker hand from those cards will get a bonus 5 points for their team.

We had two nearly full tables last night.  Don't know if I will be able to keep up if we ever get to three, but would like to try.  Remember all you have to do is let me know when or if you win with a Straight or better.  Then I do the rest.

Anyway the winner of last night's Poker Run was HoboJim11247.  He also won the tournament and drew a pair of 9's on his last card.  That was the highest hand for the night.

Hobo will be invited to join me at the payout table for 20K free chips.  In addition, he won a bonus of 5 Tank points to add to his team score for the Pokerholics.  

If you enjoyed the game we will do it again next Saturday.

We only had 15 players last night, but it was a fun evening.  Remember for the Poker Run all you have to do is let me know when you win with a Top Five hand (Straight or better).  We will also be adding a new rule that you now get a card for a Knock Out with any hand. So just let me know when I owe you a card.

Anyway the winner of last night's Poker Run was Rhino4646.  He did not win the tournament but drew a pair of angry Jacks early in the contest.  That was the highest hand for the night.

Rhino will be invited to join me at the payout table for 20K free chips if he wants them.  In addition, he won a bonus of 5 Tank points to add to his team score for The Wizards.  

Come back again next Saturday.

We will be cancelling the Poker Run for January. Too much work, not enough interest.
