    yep but the 10 includes MVP and high hands. It is optional although about 95% participate...

    What is it again now?

    Everyone plays NLHE and Heads up and Omaha
    Split the team between Stud and Limit?

    I can't remember since y'all changed it like 3 sessions back.

    You got it...

    Not sure we are going to be able to run this as Moose told me last night that he is out since he has lost a couple of people and the rest don't seem interested anymore. Not sure what's going on there but his team has been a stalwart for ever. I'll give it a couple of weeks and see if we get another team but then will have to make a final decision. If it doesn't go this time I'm afraid our beloved Royal dies at 19.
  • compueasecompuease Administrator
    Bump guys, we need someone to step up with more teams or this dies.. Holychow?
  • I blame this whole situation on the god damm Pringles can. People are afraid to play because they don’t think they can beat our Pringles can. This is what happens when someone brings a ringer to play in a friendly game.

    Yep, when the Pringles can beats 2/3 of the field you know the field is pretty weak. Maybe someone can enter a whole team of Pringles?

    Is the problem that the venue won't host without a certain headcount?
  • compueasecompuease Administrator
    That's one problem, since we get it for free they count on food and drink, I was told 60 but we have gotten away with 48 before.
  • BankItDrewBankItDrew Full PFC Member
    Cane we try to get away with what we have? My team and I love this event and would hate to see it die. Unfortunately, we're not able to create another team at this time.

    I might have someone interested in entering a team. I'll let you know ASAP

    Please do, we are down to the pretty well last chance..
  • sn1perb0ysn1perb0y Full PFC Member
    I know no games other than NL holdem, a bit of Limit holdem and PLO.

    I'd like to come join in this tournament and support the royal cup. I can learn basics of new games too, if any team wants a member, let me know.
  • bigslik77bigslik77 Full PFC Member
    I have tried to recruit for this as well with little success. I have played in the Royal twice over the years and would be willing to play if there is a need for players.
  • compueasecompuease Administrator
    Can you both post in the free agent thread if you don't mind. I think Justin (Holychow) is putting a team together and I may have someone else who is trying to put one together as well. Looks hopeful.
  • compueasecompuease Administrator
    Looks like Justin is out but Pete is going to try and gather the rest together, perhaps with some guys from the Free Agent thread?

    However I do have a 6th team captained by my former co-captain Mark who couldn't make the last one so I think we are good. Would sure like someone else to step up with a team as well. I am committing my $100. deposit with the venue now so please do not back out.
  • BankItDrewBankItDrew Full PFC Member
    Thanks for putting down a deposit. If things don’t pan out and you lose the deposit - I’ll pitch in for a portion of it.
  • compueasecompuease Administrator
    No need to Drew, I appreciate the offer though.. I think we are going to be ok.

    Tim Jackson here. Steve Simonson referred me (we play cards together). I am happy to enter a team if there is space. Please let me know.

    Absolutely, I have asked Steve to give you my email address. Glad to have you. I assume you have looked at the format?
