Announcing Royal Cup XX Apr 21st, 2018; 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
25 50 100 200

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.

    Spoke with venue today and just want to remind folks that there is to be no outside food or drink brought into the building. They do give us the beautiful venue at no cost so expect to make revenue off the food and drink. The menu is always good and I believe quite reasonable. Their beef stew (if they have it this time) is to die for...

    Also would like to remind everyone not to bring any nuts on site as we have at least one player with a very serious nut allergy.

    Lastly they are in the process of installing a new POS system in preparation for the upcoming golf season and it is possible that they will only be able to take cash for food/drink. I should know prior to next Saturday but just want to get it out there.
    Please tip the staff as well since we really don't have another place to hold this event and no one can beat the price.

    Someone correct me if I’m wrong but I’m pretty sure it’s:

    Don't want the address public please... Comp. Anyone who needs it email me or pm me, All captains have it for sure... I personally sent it to them in an email a few days ago. It is the same as the past few events
  • compueasecompuease Administrator
    Hopefully you all have an email or other contact with your captains as I also informed them that the venues POS system will likley be down as it is getting upgraded and I received another email today from the venue that it is confirmed not available. Please bring cash, smaller bills appreciated for food/drink. Please also remember to tip as we do get this beautiful venue for free.

    No outside food or drink to be brought into the venue please!

    Yeah!!

    Thanks to my teammates for picking up the slack after I tried bluffing my stack into the (eventual MVP) calling station.

    Does this mean we have to change the saying to FUCK YOU MVP!?!?!?
  • moosemoose alces alces
    Has the level of play dropped that much that trigs is mvp?
  • trigstrigs Flop smasher
    Obviously moose. You weren't there.

    Great day everyone, obviously another fantastic success despite some doubts.. Hopefully we do another in the fall likely late October/early November. A very real possibility of having 8 teams next time because there is a rumored all female team being assembled so look out guys.

    A special thanks to Yuliana of HBK and others who cleaned up afterwards, your help was much appreciated.

    Thank you also to Mike aka Toronto Pimp who bought me lunch and donated his high hand winnings to the venue staff. Very classy Mike..

    Special thanks from KitWho? To Comp, /g2 and our own DataMn Al for all the work you guys put into this.

    Great to have the new teams out. Great job by Waltsfriend, Mark and Tim putting teams together.

    Great day. Thanks all.
