I knew I was going to win $$$$ so I didn't bother  ;)

Sorry, my bad.  I jumped into the 1st tourney late and hadn't kept up with the thread for payment.  You can definitely take it out of winnings.  Would you rather just keep it and use it for future tournaments as I plan on playing more or just send it and we'll keep doing transactions each time?  Whatever you think is easiest, doesn't matter to me.

I'll just pay it out. It's easier that way - too much trouble to track it.

Alright. Great job everyone! Everyone paid with no real issues. All winners should be paid out now. If you think you have money coming, or if you think I sent the wrong amount, let me know.

Hey fellas, just so everyone knows for some reason PokerStars isn't allowing late registration for these tournaments now. Just looking at twitter I think they've had some bugs allowing some late regis

Yes he did!

It's not that hard to manage the money, just takes a little time. For future payments:

1. Let's use PayPal only. It's too hard to use different payment methods. A lot of folks know each other on here, so maybe the non-PayPal people can pay a friend and then they can PayPal the banker.

2. When using PayPal, do NOT put anything about poker, gambling, etc. in the comments.

3. When sending money, put both your PokerStars name AND your FBG name in the comments.

Let's keep this going - it's a lot of fun.

Wow, that's a great turnout.  I remember the days of struggling to get 5 people or so.

It was.

Can we also get a running list of PS names with FBG names so we know who's who (if it's not obvious)?

a google doc with this and pay pal addresses, so if @kutta isn't banker, it can be easy for all to pay out at end of day.

Also, I'm happy to bank as needed.  Even if not playing for the night, I can settle it out the following morning as needed.

That should have been said last night in this thread. LOL

I meant a Google doc with all the addresses listed. Let's not do that.

So I may seem like a tight ### but I did not want to spend $3 to buy fake chips. A couple hours before kickoff last night I had 11K chips after playing around familiarizing myself with the PS software, I needed 9k more to make the entry fee for the real money tourney put together here. All I could think of was Lee Trevino when he said, "real pressure is when you're playing $5 a hole with only $2 in your pocket."

So I went out into sit and gos and pounded out 10K to make entry. All to save $3.

And yes, I lost $20 coming in at #6.  But it was really fun and I look forward to tonite.

You can get $15k in free chips every 4 hours if you click the button at the top of the app that says "Free Chips".

Ah yes, thankfully I checked in around 4:00 and my timer says I'll be eligible for more very soon. Can it be set any lower?

I have enough chips to dump after shooting the lock off my wallet for the $2.99 last night  :)

Let me know if anyone wants to go that route and the easiest way to do so.

Lot better value with the 2.6Billion chips for $499.99

I think the 1st time you enter one of their tourneys you get auto credited 50k chips. At least I did or so it seemed. 

they have tourneys for as low as 10K chips and for free entertainment I have played a few. I think I have cashed in all but one of them just not being dumb.

How do we know if we've been approved? Is there something visible once you are? I don't want to keep spamming this thread.

If you click Home Games on the bottom right it should take you to the area where the FBG club is.  I don't see any pending requests, so you should be good.

Do I want PokerStars Lite or PokerStars Play ?

You will need to install the PC application on the Pokerstars website.  I'm not familiar with Lite vs Play, but it sounds like these may be options in the App Store?  Unfortunately the PS App doesn't allow for home games.
