Week 8 Results

St. Patrick's Day appeared to put a dent in the turnout, but we still had 14 possibly inebriated players for the HOSE tournament. Arcturus came in third, leaving goateedude and EJ89 to battle it out for the win and the bounty - EJ89 with the chance to become the first to claim a self bounty. It wasn't to be, however, as goateedude put him away for the win, the bounty and a big jump in the league standings.

The results:

The updated Top 8 (lowest score for the season dropped):

ravensfutbal(1) 133.29
HiRoller88(1) 130.87
Biggfella(2) 122.37
Arcturus(1) 104.58
goateedude(1) 99.62

Game Day!

Heads-Up! It's time for Week 6 of Season 2, and this week's format is... NLHE Heads-Up. If you haven't played one of these before, everyone pairs off for a one-on-one match. When all of those matches complete, the winners are paired up and the next round begins. Note that the first round will likely have an off-number of people for the brackets, so some (random) folks may get a bye for the first round. Also, if you finish a match early you may have a bit of a wait for all of the other matches to finish.


As people lose matches, PS will give you a finishing place based on when you go out. That is rather arbitrary though, since it doesn't matter who goes out first in a round; only the winners move on. So for the league points, they will go as follows:

1 player gets 1st place points
1 player gets 2nd place points
2 players get 4th place points
4 players get 8th place points
and so on...
