  • The "Original Drunk Tank" still going...

    Hi everyone. Just want to first start off by saying a BIG THANK YOU to Effsea for allowing the US players and everyone else to keep playing int he original Drunk Tank he opened. For those of you who have been coming in and playing it's great!!! We have fun and even though we are playing for fake money, we have a blast. A bunch of us who have been playing have been trying to come up with ways to get more people out and about and into the games. We finally came up with a little friendly challenge for July and if it gets some more people to play we will continue it and try to add a few more things to add to the mix.

    For July, we made up two teams who will be playing for top points and bragging rights. Anyone who has played at least two games from the prior month has been added to the teams. For those who didn't please stop in and play so you can be added into the next months Challenge.

    Start Time is 10pm Eastern (for those who are usually in the game that's an hour earlier then Junes start time)
    Chip Stacks: $3000
    Type of Tourney: Knockout
    Buy-in: $500 + $30


    So here are the teams, and the few suggestions to make it fair to everyone..

    The Odd Team consists of the following players:
    Johnny Oak
    Brkn80
    JerseyRon
    Effsea
    Sandtrap777
    Chelle867
    Joker41673
    I needsome$$$
    Roomik17
    Mphnascar
    Razzys


    The Even Team consists of the following players:
    JWK24
    Julestubby
    Faery Tats
    Moxie Pip
    Kvance1972
    BttredMdgt
    GALadyluck
    Joe Dawg 57
    Nobisquit
    Tom905
    Ssuglia


    This is a fun challenge and a friendly competition...NO ganging up on opposing members OR taking it easy on your own members.

    Play as you normally do and at the end of the month after the final game is played the points will be tallied to see which group gets bragging rights.

    Teams will be reassigned by player position and all new players who have at least 2 games in will be added to the new teams.

    All odd number placements will be on the odd team and all even numbered placements will be on the even team. We will post a list of teams each month.

    I will add weekly updates to this thread as to how the teams are doing.

    Good luck to both teams and hope to see some new faces at the felt.

    Johnny and Tits

      Sounds like a very good idea I have always enjoyed the tank games, the people are great, and nobody has ever laughed at a donk move I've made. LOL( I don't know how you hold it in, but thanks). Really now, it is a great group. What makes it even more special in my opinion, is the number of Canadian players who come to the table. They could just as easily have played a cash game and made some bucks, but instead choose to hang with those of us using monopoly money. They are with us for the friendship and camaraderie. True friendship is one of the great gifts life gives us for free. umbup: I'll try to be sitting in on as many games as I can. I miss the people and the chat. Sometimes I just can't make it or end up sitting out due to stuff going on at home. I am glad to see the buy-in amount lowered from what it used to be. I wouldn't have been able to play very many games at the bigger buy-in, but I got a generous donation from brkn80 and at least one other person. Thanks bunches, it means a lot Wishing everyone good luck and good cards. Look forward to seeing you tonight.

        Anyone else needing a boost of play money, please don't hesitate to ask. Many of the players would be willing to help with a transfer. Thanks to brkn for helping mphnascar.

        This should NOT be the reason you can't play.

          Johnny Oak - Finished 1st
          Brkn80 - Finished 5th

            Monthly Birthday Bash.......

            Hey Drunk Tank members, we came up with another little twist. Once a month we are going to have a Birthday Bash game for whoever's birthday it is that month. The birthday guys and gals will have their buy-ins shipped to them prior to the game, all you have to do is come out and play with your birthday chips and party hat.

            A week before the Birthday Bash I will list the names of the people celebrating for that month, if any member would like to sponsor a birthday guy or gal just PM. The night before the Bash I will list everyone who sponsored the birthday players.


            Format:

            NLHE Knockout
            Top 20% payout
            Starting Chips $5000
            Buy-in: 500+125+30
            Date: Second Sunday of every month
            Time: 8 PM


            Birthday Bash results do not apply to club standings and statistics so they will not affect the monthly challenge tournies.

            All we need from you guys is the month you were born and we can get this started for this month.
