    Good afternoon ladies and gentlemen. My name is Larry and I will be your poker tournament facilitator for the 11th annual gathering of the buffoons.:peace:

    I've set up a NL Hold 'Em tournament for us at the Flamingo poker room for Saturday, 15 March at 1100 am.

    Buy in is $50 per person. Of that, $35 dollars goes to the prize pool, $10 goes to the house, and $5 goes to the dealer/s.

    1st Place gets 50%
    2nd Place gets 30%
    3rd Place gets 20%

    We need a minimum of 10 people...I'm hoping for more. I need to know who is playing by Wednesday so can I let the Poker Room boss know. If we have more than 10 people, he'll have to get another dealer for us.

    Oh. Did I forget to mention that my conference got moved to April?
    I'm in!
    :beer::drunk::ssst::wave::beer::thumbsup:

    Consider this an open invite to those that don't really play poker (no Mike, I'm not talking about you this time.) If you are in town and just happen to be around the Flamingo around the time of the tourney, stop on by and say hi. I'm pretty sure Larry will be on the rail and can say hello :evillaugh

    hehehe.

    for anyone that's thinking of going for this - it is not a serious tourney. Its more about bragging rights etc. Complete novices welcome. some have won it.


    Not only has nobody ever repeated a win - I think I'm the only one to reach the last three twice - and I still haven't won it.


    We do have to let the staff know to let worst behavior than normal for our tourneys...

    This post in no way constitutes endorsement by Vegasmessageboard.

    Since the Poker tournament is at the Flamingo, I thought I'd share this groupon link for Johnny Rockets. http://www.groupon.com/deals/johnny-rockets-16

    I know I'll be hungry after poker and drinks.
