In the first 37 hands, I've flopped a set of 9's five times.

All the random time changes are making it really easy to plan for these.

Had to adjust it so the 4 guys who like Omaha can get the game started earlier.

And yet another fun night of poker. We do have to figure out the timing, but we'll get it down.

Here are the payouts.

First game (11 players, $220 prize pool)

1. kutta (1st w/ chop of 40% = $88)

2. whodey1989 (@cheese) (2nd w/ chop of 30% = $66 - $20 = $46) - I sent $54 by accident, so if you could send back $8 at some point, Mary will thank you.

3. FBG_Shiznittttt (@SHIZNITTTT)  (2nd w/ chop of 30% = $66 - $20 = $46) - I sent $54 by accident, so if you could send back $8 at some point, Mary will thank you also.

Second game (7 players, $140 prize pool)

1. FBGDRZ (@Getzlaf15) (1st = $100 - $20 for HORSE entry fee = $80)

2. FBG_FDAS (@Fat Drunk and Stupid) (2nd = $40 - $20 for HORSE entry fee = $20)

Third game (4 players, $80 prize pool)

1. kutta (paid out)

I'd really like to establish a rule where we pay BEFORE the game starts. It makes it much easier to pay out when everyone pays, and then the winners get paid out. It just complicates things when I have to take entry fees out of winnings. I know it doesn't seem like a big deal, but I have a fancy schmancy spreadsheet set up for payouts, and it's just much easier to track things when everyone pays.

So, sign up for the tournament, and pay the banker. Make it a two step process. Your banker will thank you.

Completely agree.  I think part of the problem is the folks that join in the late reg period.  They're focused on playing right away.

I agree that’s part of it. But it takes like 10 seconds to PayPal money. 
 

1. Register

2. Pay

It’s a two step process. We got this!

I won’t be playing tonight, so we’ll need someone to be banker. Let me know how the new process works out.

1. Register

2. Pay

How does that even happen?

Maybe I'm on a historic run of bad cards, but I might get pairs pre-flop twice a whole tournament and guaranteed that I get knocked out with someone holding a J-K  or something similar to my 9s. I'm waiting to hear back from an exorcist, but there aren't too many making house-calls during this coronavirus situation.

Nothing to add but I will be donating again this Friday night.  Had far better hands last Friday than I did the Friday before, but still gave it all up in the end.  Ugh.

It ain't poker but thought I'd post this here as we're all looking for ways to be entertained.

Whenever my college friends get together someone eventually pulls out a set of dice and a game of street craps breaks out. It's simple, stripped-down version of casino craps, no odds bets or middle action. You're either with or against the roller and the money on each side has to be even.

If come out (first) roll is 7 or 11, those With win.

If come out roll is 2, 3 or 12, those Against win.

If come out roll is 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, or 10 that becomes the point. Roller then continues to roll until he rolls either the point (With wins) or a 7 (Against wins).

If roller craps (rolls 7 after come out roll) out the roll moves to the next player.

So I created a board on my ping pong table to track bets, here it is during a live game. I've been hosting games for my college buddies every Sat night via Zoom, and we've also had some couples nights with local friends. Each player has their own "betting lane", and everyone starts with an equal chip stack. Before each roll I take bets from each player and move chips into play to match, and move chips into the stacks of winners as points are made. Everyone has a set of dice at home that they roll into a shoebox in view of the camera so everyone can see it. At the end of the night chip stacks are counted, losers Venmo winners.

There's a little bit of a trust factor with this so I'm not suggesting this is a great thing to do with random i-friends, but if you feel like getting crafty and like to gamble among amigos this scratches the itch nicely.

I moved PLO8 back to 10:30pm ET permanently.

@UniAlias   go ahead and move NL back to 9pm if you like.

Let's see if we get it going by 9:10. If not, maybe we just cancel this one and schedule a new one in 30?
