  • Drunk Tank Team Challege for Sept.

    Hi everyone.

    Just want to start off by saying a BIG THANK YOU to all of the players playing in the original Drunk Tank that Effsea 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.
    As you may know for the last two months we came up with a little friendly challenge to make the game more interesting, and it worked. This month we would like to continue to get some more people to play and try to add a few more things to the mix.

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

    There are now two start times; 7pm EST and 10pm EST


    Here are a few suggestions and new rules to make it fair to everyone..

    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.

    New Rule 1 – The two teams will be called the RED team and the BLUE team. Some people didn’t like being referred to as ODD.

    New Rule 2 – Teams will consist of 12 players initially assigned to each team. If any member of a team has not played for a 7 day period within the month, they can be replaced by the next highest eligible player. All points earned by the replacement up to that point will be added to the gaining team’s score.

    So here are the teams,

    The RED Team consists of the following players:
    JWK24
    Johnny Oak
    Joe Dawg 57
    TrumpinJoe
    JerseyRon
    Mtnestegg
    Mcrissinger
    Nobisquit
    Brkn80
    JDean
    Sandtrap777
    Phoenix Maya


    The BLUE Team consists of the following players:
    Flsnookman
    Julestubby
    GmaJudy
    !!!111Dan
    MeowSasKitty
    Tom905
    Cheon57
    Faery Tats
    TheLangolier
    Chelle867
    Effsea
    Vman279


    At the end of the month the teams will be reassigned by player position and the first 24 players who have at least 3 games in will be added to the new teams.

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

    I will add updates to this thread at least once a week 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

        Wasn't me. I've been called ODD, or worse , most of my life. How boring the world would be if we were all the same.

            Team Results - Day 5



            Red Team Standings Points – 25.18

            Blue Team Standings Points – 27.04


            Despite first place showings by TrumpinJoe, Sandtrap, and Johnny Oak, the Red team still lags behind. Contributions by Thelangolier, Julestubby, and GmaJudy have pushed the Blue team in the lead.

            For a complete listing of the team standings including point distributions see the attached PDF.

              any team I'm in charge of is 'Team Hoss' (my nickname, hence the avatar). Hold down the fort until I get back from my vacation... and get a new computer delivered... and I'll do what I can to get us as many points as possible. New Dell being ordered tomorrow night, so hopefully it'll get to me a day or so after I get back, next Monday.

              Spent some of my time well at least. Finished both 'winning poker tournaments one hand at a time' books... along with picking up Super System on closeout at Borders! I've got a few new tricks to try out on you when I get back. Hopefully they'll work for me in Detroit, when I play live Thursday night!

                OK Let's get FLsnookman to give a new name to the Blue team.

                    I like it,

                    Team Drunk vs. Team Hoss


                    Sounds like a challenge has been issued. Now all we have to do is get our head Drunk (effsea) and our Chief Hoss (JWK) to get back to the table and start winning for their teams.

                        Hopefully I'll get my new computer sometime next week. As soon as it happens, I'll be back at the tables... that's for certain.

                          Team Results - Day 10



                          Team Hoss Standings – 45.24

                          Team Drunk Standings – 42.47


                          Despite strong contributions by Tom905, GmaJudy, and Vman, team Drunk now lags behind. Last night there was an all Hoss team finish ITM, including first and second place wins by TrumpinJoe, Phoenix Maya, and Johnny Oak,

                              Crossing my fingers. Supposedly my new computer shipped today and I'm supposed to get it on Friday(a week earlier than their estimated delivery date when I bought it). If so... goal 1 is to get everything onto it (which I can hopefully do some while multi-tasking in the tank!).

                              P.S. Was card dead the whole tourney in Detroit. Still made the final table, but unfortunately, being in it for 3.5 hrs made me just miss cashing. In 8 rounds at the FT, I saw one A (A7 with 3 all-ins that I passed on), one KQs (doubled), one Q10s (ko'd me on river to 35s that spiked a 5 on the river)... no other A, face, suited, pair... not much I can do with that!
                              Hopefully the 3 tournies in Vegas and WSOPC event 1B in Hammond treat me a bit better.
