Announcing Royal Cup XX Nov 4th, 2017; Discussion thread



The Royal Cup of Poker XX will take place at the same location as the last one.

The Royal Cup is a team event, consisting of 8 players, in which each member of your team plays 3 different SNG's as well as one heads up NL match. Points are received based on finishing position in the SNG's and are accumulated between all your team members. The team with the highest point value at the end of the event are declared the champions. The point system is at the bottom of this thread for reference.

The schedule/blind structure will not change from what is posted below. Please arrive as early as possible

Schedule

10:00 - 10:30 Registration.
10:30-10:45 Rules. If you have questions before hand just ask.
CARDS FLY AT 10:45 Sharp.

Captains will collect their teams entry fees and pay me directly the full $400 amount.

Side pots are as usual, $2. for high hand in each SNG plus $4 MVP ($10. total). These are strictly optional but do add some fun to the day.

Our 50/50 Points draw is an event where you pull a players name out of a hat and if they are the days MVP you will split the pot with them. So the pot goes to the MVP and the person holding their card.

Also, each variation of poker that day will have a High Hand Jackpot.

Stud
FL Holdem
PL Omaha
NL Holdem

For all the SNGs you must show your hand to be eligible but a showdown does not need to occur. In the Hold em SNGs you must use your 2 hole cards to be eligible for the high hand jackpot.

So for $10 you can enter all the side pots.



10:45 - 2:00 FLHE/Stud (4 players on each team play Stud and 4 play FLHE.)


- Cards are in the air at 10:45am sharp if players are not there they will be blinded out.

7 Card Stud Starting with 5000 Chips
14 min Blinds Ante Bring In SB BB
5 10 20 40
10 20 40 80
20 40 80 160

400 800 1600 3200
500 1000 2000 4000
800 1600 3000 6000


These will be the rules for the Stud SNGs
Antes are paid and then the dealer deals 2 cards down and one up per player
After the first three cards have been dealt, the player showing the lowest up card must make what is called a "bring-in" bet.
The bring-in bet, by the way, is the only significant time and place in poker where card suits come into play. The highest suit is spades, followed by hearts, diamonds, and clubs
After the action has been completed on the opening round, the dealer gives a face-up card to each player remaining in the game. The dealing will go in a tradition clockwise fashion. Unlike the first round, where the lowest hand was forced to start the action, in this second betting round, the highest hand on board has the option to start the betting; that is, the player showing the highest hand is called upon first to either bet or check.
On fifth street, you receive your third up card, and then there is a round of betting, again started by the highest hand on board. (This person may be different then the first bettor on 4th street).
Sixth street is virtually identical: an up card is dealt, the highest hand acts first.
The betting on seventh street is identical to sixth street, but the card dealt is the last card you will receive, and it is dealt face down.
There are 4 bets max per round unless heads up where the betting is unlimited.

    i vote to get rid of fixed limit holdem. it is the nut worst. granted, i do choose it over stud but that is only because i suck at stud and i choose the shitty game i'm better at for my team.

    anything is better limit holdem - PLO8, razz, 2-7 triple draw, anything.

    i'm assuming it won't change but just wanted to voice my opinion.

    Shady Poker will certainly participate in the Fall 2017 event.

    I don't mind LHE as much as I mind Stud. I HATE Stud.
  • pkrfce9pkrfce9 SHIP IT, BITCHES!
    Just a thought... get a deposit from each team captain by a specific date. Might help you to decide to commit to the venue.

    Update?

    Shady Poker is ready to go anytime anywhere.
  • compueasecompuease Administrator
    As of the moment we don't have a free venue for an event this fall..:'(
  • BankItDrewBankItDrew Full PFC Member
    Should I look around for a free venue?

    I'm assuming 9am-9pm, 60-70 people.

    If you can find one, great.. Let me know.. Timing and numbers is correct.
  • BankItDrewBankItDrew Full PFC Member
    Venues are not inclined to provide us with a room due to the gambling aspect, due to their liquor license rules. One venue offered a room for $20/head + drinks and food but the topic of gambling never came up.

    For our previous venue, what was the issue? Was it the gambling or that they wanted to not provide a free room? I believe my team would be willing to pay a small head fee.
  • compueasecompuease Administrator
    There is no issue at the other venue other than they booked up for the Saturdays in October and November, mostly weddings as I recall. No issue with the gambling and no fee as long as we were buying their food and drink. Hard to beat that and we wouldn't have if we didn't have a good connection. We will likely just try again next year.
  • BankItDrewBankItDrew Full PFC Member
    Do you think 60-70 people will mind paying $20/head? I can book something in this case.
  • compueasecompuease Administrator
    Not for a $50. tournament... That would mean we are paying like $1200 for rental. That's like 30% rake. Where is this place?
  • compueasecompuease Administrator
    Potential of running this Sat Sept 30th. They have a golf tournament booked then at the moment but there is a possibility of it moving to Brookville. Should know shortly. Can the captains see if that would be feasible?
  • moosemoose alces alces
    Sept 30 yes
  • BankItDrewBankItDrew Full PFC Member
    That place was Lowville.

    Brookville on sept 30 will be feasible for us.
  • WolffhoundWolffhound Flop smasher
    KitWho? will be there.
  • compueasecompuease Administrator
    Unless something drastically changes at the course we won't be playing this fall. All Saturdays mid Sept to Xmas are booked.

    There's a chance I can have a venue for a Fall 2017 event. Is there still enough interest to make it happen?

    Fyi the venue would be The Niblick Pub in Oakville. They have stated they would close the venue for us, but then opening up to the rest of the public at around 7pm.
  • compueasecompuease Administrator
    I think we'll wait until next spring at our regular location. Thanks for trying though.
  • BankItDrewBankItDrew Full PFC Member
    Okie dokie. I'll let them know.
