    Announcing Royal Cup XXIII Oct 26th, 2019; Discussion thread

    Announcing Royal Cup XXIII Oct 26th, 2019; Discussion thread

    The Royal Cup of Poker XXIII 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
    50 100 200 400
    Colour Up Break 10 mins
    100 200 400 800
    200 300 600 1200
    200 400 800 1600
    300 600 1200 2400
    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.


    Fixed Limit Hold em


    FL Hold em Starting with 5000 Chips
    14 min Blinds SB BB Stakes

    1500 3000
    2000 4000
    2500 5000



    Basic Rules of Omaha are the same as Hold em with the exception of each player being dealt 4 pocket cards and when the showdown occurs the best hand must use 2 pocket cards and 3 community cards.


    NLHE
    5:00 (or earlier) to 7:30 NL Hold em

    Just an FYI for those who may not have noticed-this event does conflict with the Niagara Poker Classic. Players and/or captains may want to check in and confirm before playing satellites and/or committing to a team and having to drop out. I had a player drop out last night when we noticed the conflict.

    Could I start a new team; a team of one. Or one (me) and a small army of Pringle cans? My team name would be Narcissistic Megalo-ego-maniac. Ideally I'd be permitted to hop from table to table and sub into which ever Pringle can I feel like controlling temporarily.

    Just to update everyone, please pass on to your teams especially regarding outside food and drink..

    Good morning Jeff thank you for the update, I was thinking about your event.

    One other thing I'm thinking about. Considering just once a year in the fall. It's just getting to be a chore to get enough teams, spring seems to be the worst although only 6 this time is not great. Will bring it up at the introductions and get a consensus. If anyone has any personal thoughts please approach me at the event. Jeff..

    Today their machine was working but being where they are they regularily have issues. Bring cash just in case.

    Also it appears as if the fresh cut fries will not be available, so back to frozen.
