Come one come all for the

25 for 25

holiday raffle



I would like to take this opportunity to announce that we will be bringing back the Tanker Team Challenge in January of next year.  We will be using a slightly different format that involves more teams with fewer members.  It should be fun.

However, it will depend on using the player standings from the previous month (December) to be successful.  So I would like to invite all of the current and older players to come out and play.  We would love to get the games back to having all of our old friends playing together again.

So with that in mind I am offering a raffle for the month of December.  I am putting up a 25 dollar prize to one of our members.  If you are in USA, you will get a $25 Visa Gift Card.  If in Canada, you will get a $25 PS transfer.  If you are elsewhere, we will figure out something.

Here’s how it will work.  There will be 31 total games in December.  At the end of the month I will throw the names of all qualified players into a hat, and my granddaughter will draw the winning name.  To be qualified, and have your name in the hat, you must have made the Final Table for a total of 15 times during the month.  I will be tracking the FT’s every night and will make a post here to let everyone know when they have reached their goal.

Now here is the good part, you can increase your odds.  If you continue to play, and reach a total of 20 FT’s you get to have your name in the hat twice.  And if you can reach 25 FT’s you can add your name a third time.  So 25 FT’s could win you 25 dollars.  Remember that most FT’s have 9 seats, so at least 9 players will qualify most every night (8 on Mondays).

Post here or send me a PM if you have any questions.  And pass the word around.  I would like to get all of old regulars back into the club, even if I have to bribe them.

Note: Managers and Administrators of the club are not eligible for the prize.

Eff and Johnny

Just another announcement.

As you play in the Tank in December you will notice that I am experimenting with the game style slightly. The blind intervals will now be 5 mins instead of 10. The starting stacks will be 5000 instead of 3000.

This should make the games not last so long. So if you are one of the ones that have to work the next day, and this was the reason you stopped playing in the weekday games, come back and try it now.

However, if you are one of the ones that liked it the way it was, be sure to let me know that as well. We will go with majority rule. Or mix it up somehow.

The goal is to make the game as much fun as we can.

The people make it fun for me, love ALL of you. Each day I think, yes I get to play tank tonight, and smile. I do so wish more would play with us, ALL of YOU!!! I'd play 30min blind stud or hyper turbo ante-only HORSE so long as I know tankers will be there!!!

Come on everybody, we miss you all. I love you

OK we have officially started our 25 for 25 holiday raffle.


Attached is a copy of the stats sheet for the first five nights.  I will post and update to this sheet every 5 days so you will know where you stand.

It seems there are some players that have already collected 5 FT's toward their raffle chances.  This is a good start.

Remember 15 FT's gets your name in the hat, 20 FT's gets your name in twice, and 25 FT's nets you a third opportunity.

There are still 26 games left in December so there is still time and an excellent chance you could be our winner!  drunken  cheers

Standings for our 25 for 25 holiday raffle.


Attached is a copy of the stats sheet for the first ten nights of December.  I will post and update to this sheet every 5 days so you will know where you stand.

It seems there are some players that have already collected over half of the FT's needed to secure their raffle chances.  This is a very good start.

Remember 15 FT's gets your name in the hat, 20 FT's gets your name in twice, and 25 FT's nets you a third opportunity.

There are still 21 games left in December so there is still time to add to your score and increase the chance you could be our winner!  drunken  cheers

Standings for our 25 for 25 holiday raffle.


Attached is a copy of the stats sheet for the first 15 nights of December.  I will post an update to this sheet every 5 days so you will know where you stand.

It seems there are now several players that have collected over half of the FT's needed to secure their raffle chances.  And there are 2 people who only have 5 more to go.  This is a very good start.

Remember 15 FT's gets your name in the hat, 20 FT's gets your name in twice, and 25 FT's nets you a third opportunity.

There are still 16 games left in December so there is still plenty of time to add to your score and increase the chance that you could be our winner!  drunken  cheers

Bonus Nights Added


I would like to announce that I have added 2 bonus nights into the chase for FT positions.

On December 24th and 31st, (Christmas Eve and New Year's eve), anyone who is still in the game after the first BREAK will earn a FT position. So all you have to do is make it to the first break and it will count as a Final Table seat.

Standings for our 25 for 25 holiday raffle.


Attached is a copy of the stats sheet for the first 20 nights of December.  I will post an update to this sheet every 5 days so you will know where you stand.

It seems there are now several players that have collected well over half of the FT's needed to secure their raffle chances.  And there are 3 people who only have 2 more to go.  This is a very good start.

Remember 15 FT's gets your name in the hat, 20 FT's gets your name in twice, and 25 FT's nets you a third opportunity.  
Although anyone getting to 25 is looking pretty slim right now.

There are only 11 games left in December (but we have thrown in 2 Bonus nights) so there is still time to add to your score and increase the chance that you could be our winner!  drunken  cheers

When I first started this contest, I thought that we would have lots of names on the list. I did not realize how hard it would be to get 15 Final Tables. But we cracked the ceiling last night.

We had our first player break through and get his name on the list.

GandalfDwite has made it. If you want to join him, better get in the Tank.

Standings for our 25 for 25 holiday raffle.


Attached is a copy of the stats sheet for the first 25 nights of December.  I will post a final update to this sheet at the end of the month so you will know where you stand.

It seems there are now four players that have collected the required number of the FT's needed to secure their raffle chances.  

The four names in the hat so far are GandalfDwite, Phoenix Maya, FLSnookman, and zzHoneyBeezz.

Remember 15 FT's gets your name in the hat, 20 FT's gets your name in twice, and 25 FT's nets you a third opportunity.  Although it doesn't appear anyone can get to 25 right now.

There are only 6 games left in December (but we do have 1 Bonus night) so there is still time to add to your score and increase the chance that you could be our winner!  drunken  cheers
