Suggestion for tournies the rest of 2010

Although most of our players are located in the same timezone, I suggest that we alternate on picking the day/time the rest of the year in order to increase attendance and fairness to the players.

My suggestion is that Benko picks date/time in August.
MrSmith selects September.
Klokkhammer selects October.
MrE selects November.
Seabreeze makes his pick for December.

If one of our non-regulars (Jane, Wollmar, BeatFreak, Barbapaps.....) wishes to arrange an extra tourny inbetween, that would also be welcomed. A tourny every fortnight works for me.

Any thoughts?


  1. I like your suggestion MrSmith. I can do the actual setting up of the tourney at Pokerstars as long as the player responsible lets me know the date and time (feel free to suggest a password too!).

  2. In August I'll be located in a new time zone, GMT+7. I don't mind getting up or staying up late to play at 9:00 p.m. Oslo time on a Sunday so, Roland, why don't you pick a Sunday in August which you think would suit people's summer holiday schedules. Password: juanda The main issue for me will be internet speed and reliability about which I am receiving conflicting reports.

  3. Good luck on your new adventure benko! I would be interested in knowing the details such as when and where if you get a chance (in an email).

    I'll pick a Sunday, but will check with you before setting up the tourney. i think we all can be flexible with the time slot if necessary.

    If you are stuck without broadband, then I sure hope there is a decent casino close by!

  4. I do like the idea too :-)
    I'll wait a bit b4 picking a date in Nov though
