Who can play

Anyone who is a member of this forum. If you want to play, please post your forum username and prima poker username below.

Structure

Multi table private game every week, with a $10 buyin (It will be $11, $1 for the house rake - thats about £5) to be played on the Prima Network. I recommend Bet365poker but its up to you which room you want to play at so long its on the prima network.

Scoring

1 point for showing up, and as well as that:

if < 10 people play
1st - 10 points
2nd - 9 points
3rd - 8 points
..
5th - 6 points

if > 10 people play
1st - 15 points
2nd - 14 points
3rd - 13 points
..
10th - 6 points

if > 20 people play (ok hopeful)
1st - 20 points
2nd - 19 points
3rd - 18 points
..
10th - 11 points

I believe this should work well but if you have better suggestions please do say before we kick off.

When

Every Monday at 9pm. Under the private tables tab in your poker client, look for the game "Kiwis Poker League". Each week I will announce a password on the forums for the game which you will be required to join in.

The league will last for 10 weeks in which the winner is decided by the person with the most points (duh). In the event of a tie, a heads up game of $10 will be played. If its a three way tie then a mini knock out thing will occur, but I doubt that will happen.

Other

The game will be No Limit Texas Holdem, although a couple of Pot Limit games may be played.

It will be a social game, the $10 buyin is just to make it interesting and stop people playing like complete morons.

You may join the league at any time during the season provided you meet the criteria (registered on the forums) but obviously you start with 0 points.

The first match will be played May 9th 2005, at 9pm.

The IRC channel for the league is #all_in

Feel free to ask any questions here or in the room.

Not signed up with a prima network site, so will sign up on bet365 and edit this post with my username.

BTW if anyone wants to use me as a referrer when signing up to Royal Vegas and/or 7 Sultans I can try to offer some sort of rakeback (or a cash incentive ... not sure if I joined the revenue or cash advance programme)

I dont have affiliate with bet365poker, but this site is offering 25% - http://www.paidpoker.co.uk/365info.htm

Its okay you dont need to play them all (obviously if you want to win the series you need lots of points)...

We've christened the Kiwis Poker series, the KSOP (Kiwis Series of Poker)

Scoring System:

I dunno what sort of scoring other series use, might be worthwhile looking into...

My proposal would be, 1 point available per entrant.

Eg, 10 entrants, 1st place gets 10 points, last place gets 1 point.

Eg, 20 entrants, 1st place gets 20 points, 10th place gets 10 points, last place gets 1 point.

But yours works well enough for me.
