Re: Official EF Poker Thread

Okay, a little bit more on the legal side.

As I said, tournaments outside Casinos are legal, subject to ESBK approval. Under 50 players, such an application would be uneconomical (the application costs 300chf).

Check out the Gaming Commission website (D/F/I)

So for the legal reasons, lets only quote Monopoly Dollars (MOD) as the unit of currency in this thread.

Re: Official EF Poker Thread

Kevin - Duebendorf/Zuerich area. I have been playing since highschool with a half dozen buddies back home. Not a high roller though don't worry, just enjoy the game


I would be uber-pumped to play some games in a good atmosphere without in-your-face people who take it too far! I'm not too worried though

Re: Official EF Poker Thread

I am interested. Zürich/Dübendorf from 6/14. I am a big fish I have been loosing money for almost 3 years now.

But I would assume to play differently. Sngs are ok but with different structure. Blind increase should be based on time, and ITM places should follow the usual structure on the net.(up to 6 players 1-70%, 2-30%, up to 9-10 players 1-50%, 2-30%, 3-20%). Or certainly we could play ring as well.

Re: Official EF Poker Thread

I will play, but I don`t think the structure works in the format you suggest.
Firstly the bUy-In needs to be specified. Standard would be 100 Big Blinds. Doubling everytime someone busts out means the levels go something like..
1/2
2/4
4/8
8/16
16/32
32/64
64/128

Assuming 10 players which means after 5 levels an average chip stack is 200 and so the BB is >25% of a stack. Conclusion? Donkfest. It is much better to have the blinds on a clock for a tourney.

Most people who set up a "home game" start with a tournement and then migrate to a (monopoly) cash game, for the simple reason it offers the most flexibilty. When did you last get 10 people to turn up on time for anything? A cash game is flexible. You can arrive when you want, leave when you want, get up, sit out, take a smokie. I like tournements but think it makes more sense to play them online or in a casino where, when you bust out, you can jump straight into another game and are not left sitting around twiddling your thumbs for 2hours. Worst case scenario for a tourney is you plan your evening around it, bust out in the first hand and have no chance of getting a game for the next 90 minutes..
