Familiar Poker Tournament - Friday! Aug. 8th - 12 PM Game Time Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote

Back by popular demand!

Re-Arranged will be hosting another awesome Familiar Poker Tourney! With a twist!

Join us for fun on Friday!
Playful competition
Fun banter
cool games and prizes!


And there is a Twist!

In addition to our awesome poker tournament:

This time we are introducing-

Mini-Games!

(see below tournament details for more information)



WHEN: FRIDAY AUGUST 8, 2014 AT 12 NOON GAME TIME
(type /info in your game chat to see game time)

WHERE: ON A SHIP! You will see our large ship from ALL FOR ONE
jobbing a half hour prior to the game starting

COST: ENTRY FEE OF 100K PER PIRATE FOR TOURNAMENT ( Due before game begins to secure your seat)

MINI GAMES: TO PLAY THE MINI-GAMES ONLY - FEE IS 5K PER MINI GAME


~~~ DETAILS of the GAME ~~~~

It is extremely important to pay attention to vessel chat at ALL times.
If Game Instructions are given by the coach and you miss it -
It may upset the tide in the ocean and a green flying platypus will swoop down from the moon and probe your ear-hole


** A non-refundable entry fee off 99,800 is paid when you enter the tournament by placing it in the hold of the ship for records. Keep 200 poe for your initial table buy-in.

** The game begins when there are 10 players entered, present and ready to begin. Let your hearties know to come for the challenge!

** The table is set at 2-20 no limit. Each player buys in with 200 poe when you are told to start.
The reason for the small buy-in is experience. We host these on free poker days and try to make it as easy as possible for all interested to play.

** When instructed, enter your table and join with the 200 poe buy-in. PLEASE DO NOT JOIN/SIT AT TABLE UNTIL YOU ARE INSTRUCTED TO DO SO. Usually the coach will call you all by name to a certain table where you will WATCH but not join until the coach says for everyone to join and buy in.

****** HOW DO YOU WIN??

The game is then played until there is one player left at each table. The remaining players name and poe amount is logged and you are asked to leave that table to join the final round.

The tables face-off:

The final table will be raised 20/200 no limit.

IF THE TOURNEY LASTS PAST 90 MINUTES -

-- you will be instructed by the coach that the remaining hands will be played ACOF (all in, check or fold)

Reason being is, this seems to be a pirates comfortable time period such as when joining SMH runs, etc.

THE LAST PERSON AT THE TABLE WITH POE WINS THE FAMILIAR.
2nd place: To be determined
3rd place: TBA


******* WHAT NOT TO DO *******
- Doing any of these could/will get you disqualified and booted from the game! - remember entry fee is non-refundable!


** DO NOT RE-BUY POE! If you are caught re-buying in you will be immediately planked.
** DO NOT CASH OUT - unless you are told to do so by the game coach. In case of an emergency it is up to the players at your table to let you leave and return (as soon as possible- determined by the players) - you will be told by the coach to cash out, logged and timed. If you do not return by the allotted time, you are out, sorry.
** DO NOT BE RUDE/MEAN - UNRULY BEHAVIOR IS NOT TOLERATED - although losing isn't fun, don't ruin it for others. Anyone being offensive to other players will be considered for planking.
** DO NOT DISCONNECT: If you d/c from the game you will have the normal time to reconnect. If you can not connect in that time your seat will unfortunately be forfeited and entry fees are non-refundable so make sure you have a good connection!

SPECIAL NOTE ***
IN THE EVENT THAT THE GAME SERVERS CRASH AND MULTIPLE PLAYERS ARE LAGGING BADLY OR D/C'ING - THE GAME WILL BE CANCELLED AND YOU WILL BE REFUNDED YOUR ENTIRE ENTRY FEE AND NO WINNER WILL BE DETERMINED.




Mini-Game Information

Since we had so many watchers at our last tournament we decided to give you all something to do too!

Mini Games will be played during the tourney and the cost to play and prize will be announced in advance so you could choose to pay to play, or sit that one out.

To play the next mini-game, pay the amount announced by the coach to be eligible to submit an answer.

The amounts will range from 100 poe to 25,000 poe- Cost of the game is determined by the prize.

The coach will announce the mini-game, cost and prize something like this.

For example:

Next mini-game in 10 minutes. Cost to play: 10k. Prize: Sloop
** instructions, details and rules on the mini-game will follow the announcement such as amount of entries, etc. some games can only have 5 players, 13 players, etc. so the first to pay get to play

Do not place mini-game entry poe in the hold- you will not get entered -
- Once the main poker tournament starts, the coach and her team can not leave their tables they are observing to check the hold for poe.


The Mini-Game introduction is on a trial basis so please be patient while we might work out some kinks. We will be as organized as possible beforehand, but things always come up!


Come get some fun!


Any questions please feel free to contact any R-A royal members, or send a tell directly to Bizkit or Seamystery or simply post a reply to this thread.

Best of luck to those that are entering, and stay awesome!

I can tell you its not a SH, or a Serp. I can also tell you what I make is not very much profit at all > If you have ever been in one of my poker tourneys in the past, you know I do it mostly for fun and to be social, sometimes i take a loss and oh well!

But as for the familiar, as always, I won't tell and its a mystery- You will have to win it to see it.

I can tell you to date I have never had any players complain and they have been very grateful for the fun and prizes.

In fact 100k for a chance to win a Familiar is pretty good - if you have the poe. If not, then feel free to join our mini-games for fun.

The 2nd and 3rd place prize will be announced in a post this evening.

Any questions just send me a tell :)
