Nope, anyone wants to join in PM me now...
If you don't mind me asking Niall, did our poker tourneys attract Betfair to offer this freeroll or did you approach them about it?
Or are the Caf poker touneys and this tourney just a random coincidence?
Good luck to all who's playing.
And by all I mean RedNome.
I know how to play Texas hold 'em but never played online.
I've got a Betfair account and downloaded the thing.
Is it easy to play if you know Hold 'Em or do you have to know online poker?
Just had a PM from a newbie with zero posts looking for the password.
From the looks of the player's list it looks like someone's given it to him aswell.
boxer13 I would guess is not a Caf regular.
You'll figure it out, the Betfair client is very basic (too basic) and easy enough to understand.
not that random if you know my initials, and surely less random than nome
Not much we can do about this really if he's already got the password, maybe Niall can sort it out with Betfair?
You may very well have a point there lad.
It will be very disappointing if that is the case. Anyway for you to check Niall?
If someone from outside the cafe or who just joined the cafe wins this then I would assume he would not be eligible for the prize.
I'd bet half my stack Revelz is on one of the tables tonight.
Betfair were aware of the regular poker tournaments so that might have influenced them but it wasn't brought up in our discussions.
28 now, ready lads?
He sucks bad at poker anyway.
28? Might take a while then. Whoever wins will have earnt it!
No one picked up on this?
Shame we can't get these kind of numbers for ours.
I noticed it.
Needs clearing up one way or the other though.
Decotron the latest player.
Yes, anyone who joined after the competition was announced and is in the game is not eligible for a prize. They can still play but whoever finishes behind them will receive any prize they would have got.
30 odd is a pretty poor turn-out really for such a good competition
That's fairly cool is that, glad we may have helped bring this to the Caf.
Nice one guys.
I was just thinking...do we all play on the same table?!
I didn't expect this many tbh Niall, quite a decent game we're going to have I recon, 30 ain't too shabby at all.
So is it going to be like 30 odd round a table?
Will that not take ages between turns?
So is the prizepool as per your opening post Niall or as per the betfair listings ?
No, 9 seat tables.
I'm assuming it's as I posted but I'll confirm with Betfair.
Whats the craic will this be non stop till the end ? Should I make a packed lunch?
Don't laugh at my ignorance.
And is it just who has the most money from each of the individual tables?
Sorry, nout personal, but that just really tickled me mate.
I've got a bottle of morgan spiced rum sat next to my pc, but only one can of coke so this may get a little messy
Good to see a familiar face in the list. Packed lunch, flask of coffee and few pre-rolled ones will see you through fine.
Good luck all!
Oooo we have a countdown
I know it did sound ridiculous.
5 minute countdown.
Anyone got pre-match nerves ?
