Casino Poker Tournament BETA

52 replies 1915 views Edited Mar 14, 2013

Attention Poker Players:

This season The Casino will be starting a monthly Poker Tournament, but first we're having a BETA weekend. This two-day tournament is the perfect place to prove you have the best poker face. Participate in this event and you'll have a chance to win 25,000 chips and an exclusive reward plus everyone who participates in the tournament will take home a poker tournament BETA bracelet.

We're hoping to host the BETA on April 6-7. If you want to find out how you can get in on this intense poker action, head over to the poker room for more details!

Details:

Get your best poker face ready because The Casino is about to host its first monthly Poker Tournament, but before we do we're going to have a beta test and  we want you to be part of it!

To qualify for the beta all you have to do is play in 10 or more Casino poker games in the 30 days before the tournament. If you meet these requirements, a voucher will be given to you during the week leading up to the tournament and once redeemed will give you access to the Poker Tournament Qualifying Room. The tournament will take place over 2 days: Saturday and Sunday.

On Day 1, you'll enter the Poker Tournament Qualifying Room and play as many games as you can in 8 hours. At the end of the day, the top 36 players will move on to the semi-finals the next day.

On Day 2, each player will be assigned a seat at one of the six tables in the Poker Tournament Finals Room. The winners of each table will face off against each other in a final game later in the day.

The top 3 players will win chips (only 10% of the real tournament payout for this beta), and the champion will get an exclusive item (not as exclusive for this beta).

Watch the weekly Casino message for more details on when the Poker Tournament Beta will run.

I hope DL modifies the blind structure for this tournament. Their poker tables are by far the worst on Home. The last time I played, the blg blind hit 12800 chips with four players remaining. Ludicrous.

 

A little work on the randomizer couldn't hurt either.

I wonder if that includes the free table.

Haven't been using Home much lately, but I like tournaments so I'll more than likely play. Quick question tho, where are the "free" poker tables, are y'all referring to the Home Hold'em poker rooms or did the Casino add "free" tables? I looked around the Casino but all the tables have a buy in of 500.

I like the idea, but there are several things that I think it's essential that they fix before they can even start a tournament. Or at least inform us how they will deal with them.

 

DC- problem, happens in all 3 poker rooms everyday, and how will this be dealt with as it's most likely it will happen during tournament?

 

Troll, bad playing and so on. Ever since this was announced the pokerroom has been nothing but a freakshow, playing thats far below acceptabel, constant all ins or high raising on nothing etc etc. And I am convinced that this sort of gameplay will happens in the tournament. So how will this be dealt with?

 

And how will trolls be dealt with? That Sony doesn't give a toss about trolls is obvious when you see what almost everyday turns up in poker room, destroying the atmosphere. So how will DL deal with this?
