Season 7 Championship

It's Championship Week, and congratulations to the Top 9 players that will be competing Tuesday: potnets, ravensfutbal, COLUMBIADC, HiRoller88, BeardieDog, thetoycave, EJ89, fatwilbur87, and nekendrick. Here are the tournament details:

Tourney ID: 306735539

Tourney Password: emailed to participants

NOTE: I need an email address for fatwilbur87.

NOTE: Due to the way PokerStars currently runs private tournaments we are unable to disable late registration or limit the players to 9. Because of this, the tournament will start on two tables until the late registration period ends. I tried to get this changed but could not; PokerStars has said they will consider adding this feature in the future.

As we did last season, in addition to the regular scoring there will be bonus points for the top 3 tournament winners, along with a weighted bounty system.

Bonus points
There will be additional bonus points for finishing in the money in the Championship Tournament, as follows:

Place Bonus
1) 20 pts
2) 10 pts
3) 5 pts

There will be a bounty on everyone in the Championship, but it will be a weighted bounty based on the leaderboard going into the tourney, as follows:

Place Bounty
9 pts
8 pts
4)HiRoller88 6 pts
5)BeardieDog 5 pts
6)thetoycave 4 pts
7)EJ89 3 pts
8)fatwilbur87 2 pts
x) fill in, if needed
1 pt
1 pt

The tournament winner will keep his own bounty. There are a lot of points up for grabs in this tournament!

The league prize pool for Season 2 is $180. Three places will be paid based on overall league points for the season, as follows:

1st place - $90.00
2nd place - $54.00
3rd place - $36.00

Good luck everyone!

Week 7 Results

I've been a little slow in getting results out lately - sorry about that, overcome by life and work. I'll try to get it back together for the remainder of the season.

Week 7 had 10 players, a decent turnout for a light summer season. EJ89 placed third, and potnets and ravensfutbal duked it out for a while before a winner emerged. I believe a 10-1 lead was traded back and forth several times before ravensfutbal finally took it down (and the bounty as well).

The results:

The updated Top 9:

potnets(2) 114.30
ravensfutbal(1) 101.36
HiRoller88(2) 80.02
BeardieDog 65.19
EJ89 62.96
thetoycave 59.50
fatwilbur87 58.94
nekendrick 49.25
