    For the foreseeable future, I will have a reoccurring game on pokerstars. We currently have 58 people that have registered, but need people to register for our reoccurring THURSDAY night games @7:30 EST.

    The information is below.

    The VMB Poker Stars free tourney will happen every Thursday – at 7:30pm EST – New York Time). You will need register on a laptop (and I understand it now works on your mobile device.
    https://www.pokerstars.net

    This will be a free tourney. You will need to "buy in" with 20,000 of play chips which you can get for free (this is the lowest amount that the game will allow for the "buy in").


    General set-up:

    1) We will have 10 minute blinds - $5,000 in starting chips.

    2) There will be a break. I believe it’s a 5 minute break every 55 minutes.

    3) There will be a “payout” to the top 15%. But, bragging rights in the real reward here.

    Here are the steps to get into the game after you have gone to the website:

    1. Open the main poker lobby

    2. Click on home games tab in lower right corner

    3. Click join a poker club button

    4. Enter club ID - 3605838
    5. Enter invitation code – wemissvegas


    Please note, you need to register for the specific tournament!

    Good Luck!

    If, say, someone knew nothing about poker but thought it would be fun to play anyway - is that ok? (Totally not asking for a friend.)

    I'm going to set-up another game for next Thursday, and hopefully my kids will not be as dramatic this time. Don't they know the importance of me playing in a free online poker tourney?! :)
