    Yes I enjoyed HU play but format makes for very long tourney with a lot of dead time waiting to play. I will be away from home till early next week so will not be active in forum for few days and will not be playing sundays game

    I will haveto make a new tourney so registering early will be a futile effort for now. Most of the guys registered right now I think will be deleted anyway. I will change it to 5 mins blinds and leave the chips. I don't wnat HU to be a crap shoot, I don't want it to be a shovefest bingo early.

    at 5min. blinds I'm probably back again at 5K and 10min. definitely not!


    Nice weekend all

    I know I will enjoy a heads up tourney with 5 minute blinds. 10 and 15 minute
    blinds is asking for a lot.
    It takes 2 years to learn to talk, but a lifetime to learn when to shut up.

    New Tourney with 5 min Blinds is set up for tomorrow. Do not register early. I deleted 3 from the league and I have suspended the others that were registered early except Eberetta1. Again, Eberreta do not register too early for this. If you do they all think it's ok because you do. I can't set the registration for 1 hour in home games.

    I'm not home. Don't have the stars client on any computers and my phone won't play home games as far as I know.

    Just a tip: you can also schedule 1 hour before the start of the tournament. So do you stop people register earlier. I have this rule really overlooked. But now i know it. I hope that my suspension will be deleted.

    Do you think FTR admins are just going to sit around and wait to schedule things an hour in advance? I have a Job, a family, and a life. I schedule FTR Gauntlet games when I have time. Same as the other freerolls and money added events. The owners of FTR have several businesses.

    You could always just come to FTR once in a while, maybe post a little and hang out and get to know the people that are here. Give back instead of just taking and demanding. Just a tip obviously.


    Oh, here is a Guarantee in case all of you playing haven't caught on. An FTR reg will win the Gauntlet money. You can choose to become an FTR reg as of now or not, that is your choice.

    theres also another rule that you've overlooked. look at the first post in the signup thread and repeated on the 14th april by jyms

    That said, I welcome any and all of them if they do, I would love everyone of them to start posting in the strat forums and they would get far better to not need to chase the free money.

You must start to contribute as a new member to be eligible to win FTR prizes. I will be deleting non posting players as the league continues so make sure I know who you are.
    so with all the warning s that people have to contribute to FTR or be booted from the gauntlet your only contribution is a single whinging post.but since you obviously ignored the warnings not to register early because you didn't bother reading or contributing to the forums why should you continue in the gauntlet. not actually reading the threads in the forum until you got suspended indicates you are only here for the prize money rather than for the community spirit and banter at the tables that most of the regs are entering for.For us the prize money being added is a bonus and we'd have played even if the winner only got a custom undertitle ,for a lot of people with hardly any posts , it seems its the only reason you entered.

    Changing the blind levels to 5 minutes was a huge improvement. The entire tourney took 2.5 hours, which is much better than the other one.

    Yeah format was spot on. Deep stack meant plenty of poker, turbo meant it didn't drag on.

    Good. We will have one more week of HU going forward. I will make the next two weeks games up tonight. I will also update the standings from Sundays games. I should be able to play in quite a few going forward too. Still plenty of games for people to get 12 good placings.

    5 minute blinds improved the HU game so much. Like that starting amount is $3000, not the $1500 that most free tourneys are.

    Hello Jyms,

    Is there a possibility that i can return to this tournaments?
    What can I do!
    I have learned my lesson well.
    I would very much appreciate if I get another chance.
    I will read the rules and I will comment if I can.

    I am sorry for the misscommunication

    Greetings
