Rebuy/Add-on Fiesta Insanity!

Yesterday we had the novelty idea of having a low buy-in, Unlimited Rebuy/Add-on Tournament at the Nortshide Place. Due to the small buy-in of 300+30, we had a full house with 55 players trooping over and joining the festivities.

Nothing could have prepared us for what was to come.

From a players point of view, man, it was loads of fun and crazy poker play! But for guy like me who RUN the games, my god, what a nightmare! Running around getting rebuy s and add-ons and all at the same time making sure they pay for it, get their chips, their change, etc. gave me quite a cardio workout! whew!

After the dust settled at the end of the rebuy period on the 4th level and everyone had made their last add-on, the final tally was insane!

55 entries, 116 rebuys, and 50 add-ons!

For a 300 buy-in game, the total pot shot up to P66,300+! Nice fat payout awaited those who would have the endurance to make it to the final table. And what a great final table it was! We had mostly familiar face like NickG, Che, Ariel, Benjo, Aris, skippy, and a few other regulars. Che had the HUGE chip lead mot of the time, having about 250K of the total 750K of chips in play most of the time. Final 4 players saw Aris finishing an amazing 4th place after having less than ONE BLIND on the bubble, and managing to do a J.C. miracle comeback (think 5 loaves of bread and a couple of fishes feeding thousands) when he turned it into 80K in chips! Three way action got a bit intense before, finally at around 5am (yep), with almost equal stacks, they decided to chop the pot for a nice P15,500 payday for each of the warriors. Note that ariel and benjo never even made a rebuy and only had one add-on! Che had maybe 2 rebuyss and one add-on, so not so bad either!

Congratulations to the guys who made it in the money! Till next time... NOT! haha!

That was too crazy. ;)

That was really fun. I'm sure you all will do it again! Totally Lucky! LOL


Oh, something else to add... poker is all luck anyway! No skill involved!

Quote of the Day

  • The best poker I've ever played has always entailed peace. A relaxed comfort. Eyes open, ears open, radar up. Absorbing my opponent's every message. Taking them as they come. Not mixing what those messages are with what I want them to be. It's like an aerial view. A view from above the myriad luck-dependent reactions of those many people who never gain such a peace. And when you gain that view, that peace - when you'd rather have the truth, no matter how disappointing, over a false hope, no matter how desirable - then you're a player. The hand you're on slips into a stream of thousands of other hands, no one of which, because of your lofty view, seems unduly important, no false fearful emotions rise within you. When you gain the peace of lofty perspective, you're a player, and when you're a player, you're free.- from "King of a Small World" by Rick Benett
