September 29, 2017: Event #1 and 2 Results on Standings Page

I will try and find time for a write up later this weekend here, but for now the points results can be found on the Standings page.

 

August 24, 2017: Event #1 Happens this Saturday at 6pm

Hi everyone. I am looking forward to starting up the league on Saturday. As always, its exciting to kick off the season. There are a few changes so please pay attention. Everything you need to know about the 13th edition of the Die Hard Poker League!

 

1. It starts on Saturday at 6pm! Please be there to buyin no later than 5:30pm. I will be ready to accept buyins at 5pm. I will not accept buyins after 5:50pm until the tournament has started. I don't care if you are in a line prior to 5:50pm, if I haven't accepted your money by 5:50pm you will wait until after the event starts.

 

2. WE ARE FULL. I mean REALLY FULL. 100 league members. Anyone expecting to just show up and play as either a drop in or to join the league will likely not be able to play. If you are wanting to drop in please send me an email and I will let you know your chances.

 

3. League members must pay AT LEAST $150 USD of their league fees on Saturday or they will lose their spot in the league. This goes for those that can't make it as well. If I don't receive money from you locking up your spot on Saturday, you lose it. You can etransfer or paypal to me ahead of time if you prefer. If you choose to do that the email address is darrenkennedydk@gmail.com 

 

So to be clear for the entire year your league fees are $500 USD. $150 USD is payable on Saturday. In lieu of USD I will accept $200 CAD for league fees. There is also the $50 buyin for the nights tournament. I am always happy if you can pay the whole $500 USD up front as it makes it easier on administration for the rest of the year.

 

4. Lets get ready to play some poker!

 

August 24, 2017: League Start Info

We have 99 interested people for the league at this time. Please note that your spot is only guaranteed if you show up at the first event and pay $150 USD (or $200 CAD) towards your league fees. ($50 USD or $70 CAD will be league fees each Event). If you don't pay at Event #1 your spot will go to the next person on the waitlist. If you know you will be missing the first event, please arrange for someone to pay your fees for you.

 

I prefer USD over CAD since any CAD I get I will need to exchange. I also would greatly appreciate those that can pay the full $500 USD up front as that means I am carrying less cash on any given night during the season.

 

For those asking I have not set up any golf tee times. If someone would like to step up and organize that, I would appreciate it. It would have to occur at a different course as they are booked with a Gescan function. 

 

And finally, if you know anyone still wanting to join please have them email me ASAP. Let your friends know that is it EXTREMELY unlikely that just showing up for Event #1 without emailing ahead of time will get you into the league.

 

August 24, 2017: Rules Update Ė Only ONE SUB

This year rule changes are as follows:

    a. This season you will be allowed only one substitute. This is a compromise, but this will only be for one year. Next year there will be no substitutes at all. I feel that giving everyone 1000 points to start, guaranteeing that they get to play in the Final should make up for any perceived loss in having substitutes.

    b. For league winners that win money in the WSOP, the first $5000 USD of the prize is kept by the league winner. The League will get one-third of anything won above $5000. In this way, the league will still be able to participate in any truly big wins, but the winner can reap higher rewards from min-cashes.

August 15, 2017: Only TWO SPOTS remain officially open

We are literally down to our final 2 open spots for the league this season. We wo have 3 uncofirmed returning players, so if any of those are not coming back then we may have a couple of more spots open up. At this time I am taking one more name and then will be creating a wait list for anyone else interested. We typically have 4-5 people who say they are interested that donít show so there will still likely be some spots open.

 

Once again, we cannot play golf as Gescan has a tourney running that day.
