Announcing Royal Cup XXII Apr 6th, 2019; Discussion thread

compueasecompuease Administrator
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.

    Must point out 2 venue rules that have been broken a few times and I have been told that future infractions will mean we will no longer be able to hold the event there. Please make sure all of your team members understand this, I'm sure no one wants to be the cause of this event being terminated.

    1/ NO outside food or beverage. We are getting the place for free so they need to cover their costs through the food and beverage service.

    2/ Absolutely no cash, even loonies and toonies on the tables at any time. In other words they don't want to see it. This is a legal thing to them so very important. I would suggest that perhaps we use chips for flipaments then settle up outside. I think I am even going to have to count the prize money outside in my car, promise I won't take off with it...

    Noted. Thanks comp
  • compueasecompuease Administrator
    One more thing I forgot, please bring cash for food/drink as they are getting their debit/credit system overhauled and it may not be working by then. All captains please advise your team.

    Any special instructions for collecting buy-in’s and side bets?
  • compueasecompuease Administrator
    Nope, just do it discreetly, ie captains collect the 400 and give to me all together. Side bets is really no big deal, the biggest issue was the flippaments as that is so obvious. As I suggested before, maybe one person be the banker and use chips for that if the need is really there.
  • BankItDrewBankItDrew Full PFC Member
    Can our contact here inquire about an update on the debit/credit machine?
  • compueasecompuease Administrator
    Sorry got confirmation on that 2 days ago, it will not be available. Bring cash...
  • compueasecompuease Administrator
    Everyone still good for Saturday? Any issues?
  • WolffhoundWolffhound Flop smasher
    KitWho? is all confirmed and ready to go.

    See you there Jeff.
  • BankItDrewBankItDrew Full PFC Member

  • compueasecompuease Administrator
    FYI, Our "official" side bets co-ordinator Hobbes is now out, anyone available to take on that job prior to the start?
  • DrTyoreDrTyore It's phonetic!

    Job qualifications include:
    - printing between 5 and 7 PDFs (you will not be reimbursed for that pricey colour ink unless comp has money left in the budget)
    - sitting at a table (we are all well practiced)
    - putting checkmarks next to names

    Send resumes by way of PM'ing an email address to g2 (questionable behaviour, someone please warn the mods). Warning: risks aforementioned PDFs being sent!
  • compueasecompuease Administrator
    I can print the pdf's and bring them if someone else can do the collecting and checking off... I will be kind of busy with the rest of the setup.
  • WolffhoundWolffhound Flop smasher

    Despite the danger, someone please bring scissors and 8 or more pens, and maybe some tape to get the sheets on the wall
