I just got private tournament creation privileges at Poker Stars. The lowest stakes are $1 + .10 fee. I would gladly send a dollar for Bitcoins at a very good rate. Poker stars software is topnotch. I will also cash the winner back to Bitcoins if they wish.

Let me know if this sounds good.

Do stars take a rake?

Seems like a lot of transactions.  Kind of defeats the object Smiley

pokerth.net is pretty decent now ... you can play 2 - 10 players

If anyone fancies a quick game of 1 on 1 (heads up) ... would love to give it a try Smiley

Yes Stars rakes. They don't rake transactions though, those are free. We could wager privately though and only play the lowest stakes there which would cost 10 cents each.

Until a Bitcoin poker client is set up we will need to manually transfer all entry fees and winnings anyway.

I enjoy playing online poker ( Texas Holdem ) and so I've decided to run a tournament with Bitcoins ! No 'real' money will change hands. We are playing for electric bottle tops only. Grin I don't encourage gambling and this will probably be a 'one-off' event for fun. Poker is a skill game anyway, like chess Grin

Introducing...

The 1st ( and only ? ) Bitcoin Forum - Online Poker Challenge Event.

" The Worlds First Sudo-Anonymous Poker Tournament ? "

A Password Protected - Private Game using the Free Open Source - PokerTH - http://www.pokerth.net/

Sat. 20th March 2010 at 3pm ET

50 Bitcoins + 5 Bitcoins Buyin | 1000 Bitcoins added to the Prize pool | 10-Max Table

10,000 Starting Chips, 10 Starting Blinds, Blinds will double every 10 hands !

4 places will be paid. 1st 750 Bitcoins, 2nd 375 Bitcoins, 3rd 250 Bitcoins, 4th 125 Bitcoins ( based on 10 players )


I will be playing and hosting the game and providing the 1000 Bitcoin added prize pool. You are trying to win my Bitcoins ! Cheesy

So, we need another 9 forum members to participate. Entries will be on a first come, first served basis.

Please PM me with your Bitcoin address and a random 'username'. I will then PM you my Bitcoin address to send the 55 Bitcoin entry fee, you will then receive the password for the game lobby.

If a player is a 'no show' or their are less than 5 players, actual players and / or opponents will be 'made up' of computer opponents. Any Bitcoin prize that a 'computer' player should win will be equally divided by the number of actual registered players and equally returned to each participant.

Please download the free pokerTH software to get used to the client. You can also practice against the computer. We will use the 'default' IRC / server and Lobby. You can work out how to connect it through Tor if you want to remain anonymous.

Bitcoin.org or the Bitcube will be advertised in the game lobby whilst we are playing !  Cool

If their is not enough interest or participants I will consider canceling or changing the date / time.

Thank you.

BitcoinFX.

pokerth now has ranking, yay!

Maybe we should start with some 'freerolls' to get the game going ... I'd donate 1BTC to a freeroll jackpot ...

I'm a college student, so I'd prefer to play during the week... don't want to cut into my bar time at all hahah.
Also, 1800(6PM) EST is like 1500(3PM) PST, which kind of screws over out brethren on the west coast/in the rockies.  Might I suggest 1900(7PM) EST?  That would give them some more time to get home.  I'm in Minnesota though, so it doesn't bother me at all.

Played 3 games (with eps) on headsup today ... was pretty fun! Smiley

Next game scheduled for Thursday ... around 5PM uk time (I think that's 5 hours behind EST, so midday EST).

Would be great to have some more people play ... let's chat on IRC too ,,,
