05-12-2017 New Regional Format
Beginning May 1, 2017 the Regional Format will be revised. Regional Tournaments will be held bi-monthly with new qualification standards. For those of you who indicated that bi-monthly means twice per month, the dictionary defines bi-monthly as twice per month or once every two months and ours is the latter. In order to qualify to play in Regional Events, a player must play at least 10 games in any qualifying period and must either have a win or must place in top 75 non-winning point totals. Bi-monthly tournaments will have a prize pool beginning at $1,000.00 and will increase as we add more venues. Best of Best will be eliminated as the lack of support for venues does not support this award. Annual events will occur each summer and will have a larger prize pool and will have a separate event for the top 50 point earners for the entire year. Those prize pools will be announced in Spring 2018. Annual point accumulation will run from May to April each year with Annuals in May or June.
05-04-2017 New Games in Howard County
We have a new venue starting in Howard County. The Hideout at 9855 Washington Blvd will begin games on Tuesday May 9 at 7 and 9:30 and on Saturdays at 1 and 3:30 beginning May 20. Come out for great food and first night chips.
09-02-2016 Bonus Structure
Beginning September 11, 2016 the traditional bonus structure will return. I have allowed the bonus structure to degrade thus removing the incentive to support our venues and league. Beginning on Sept 11 each player will receive a starter stack of 8,000 chips. Bonus cards, hats and shirts will be claimed at sign in. you will present your bonus cards, show your hat and your shirt(WORN , NOT CARRIED) and you will receive your bonus chips before the game commences. Once play commences no bonus chips will be given to players. Bonus chips will be given to late players thru the end of the Second Blind and nothing thereafter. Bonus Cards are 500 extra chips up to 2 cards per game. Hats are 500 and shirts are 500. Early birds(those there at least 20 minutes early) will receive a bonus card on sign in.
