Let's Get It On!
So what's been happening? Well, for one there's that Pan-Asia Poker Tour that had a good run this past weekend, getting around 60 players for their $500 buy-in MTT and about 40 for their $2,500 MTT! Wow, who woulda thought it would get that kind of reception? They hardly marketed it and had barely a month before they came here. A good friend of ours Alan E. managed to get ITM in the main event at 6th place too, getting him about just under $4,000! Nice game bro! Mind you, this was a game with the likes of Noli Fransisco playing. I can only imagine how much action there was in the side games!
Ok, now on to the main topic.
The Poker Blogger Tournament.
I've decided (and if it's ok with everyone) to have it on a thursday night, Nov.16, so that it's right after payday hehe. How's 8pm? Let's start at 8:30 sharp. Weekends seem to be out of the question and of course MWF is reserved for our regular poker nights, so thursday seem to fit in just right.
Buy-in at 1,200? We should get at least 1,000 into the pot so as to make the pot nice and sweet.
I figured our expenses for the dealers and maybe one guy at the bar will be around 3,500 at least. Food we can order nalang, pulutan lang naman. Gamefrog said he'll sponsor about 100 bottles of beer so drinks wont be a problem hehe. 200 a head will cover it naman as long as we have around 20+ to 30 players.
Ok, we'll just use the standard tournament at Skylounge, which has 20-min levels and smooth blind increases, with a 5K starting stack at 50-100 starting blinds. We've seen a lot of quality play with this structure, with the consistent players making the money majority of the time.
Headcount muna: (if i fail to mention you, please say so). I'll also include active members of Pokermanila too. The more the merrier!
(the guys from 110 poker league, tell us who's gonna represent!)
(Pokermanila guys, give us a headcount too!)
Who else hasnt been included? if you dont see your name here and think you are eligible for the tournament, please be heard!
So there, that's gotten most of the bases covered i guess. I'm going to 100% confirm our venue but it's 99% sure to be in Sky.
So let's get it on!
I'd like to give a shout out to our very own PokerFilipinas guru nickG for getting selected as Poker Blogger of the Month by Pokerlessons.net! Way to go putting the Philippine poker scene on the online map!
Till next time, may the edge be with you.
