Is anyone interested in playing a poker tournament (not at the Casino) on Friday 6/20?
Tournament poker (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tournament_poker
), sounds like fun, but I've never tried it. The Wikipedia page says that "Texas hold 'em tournaments are very common." Buy-in could be something like $10 for the tournament. We can split the proceeds among the top three winners with something like 50% to first place, 30% to second and 20% to third (depending on number of players?). Or we could skip the buy-in and just play for the challenge of winning all the chips.
Also from wikipedia, "Some tournaments offer the option of a re-buy or buy-back; this gives players the option of purchasing more chips." I don't have a strong preference on that either way but it seems like fun to have the option to continue playing for those who lose early (or perhaps we could start a consolation tournament).
We don't have any chips or cards, so it would be helpful if someone could volunteer to bring them.
Looking forward to seeing you there!
