    Default Gauntlet Intro Tournament (Free T-Shirt!)

    Hopefully this tournament will show a) interest in a regular FTR tournament and b) be a bit of fun!

    Date: 5th May
    Time: 3pm EST (8pm BST)
    Buyin: FREE
    Prize:: the latest, hottest, Pokerstars t-shirts. You'll be irresistible in clubs, I promise

    How to join:
    1. Log in to Pokerstars (even you, Americans)
    2. Join the Home Game club: http://www.flopturnriver.com/pokerfo...ad-191663.html
    3. Register for the massive expensive of 1.10 Play Chips
    4. Playyyyyyyyy

    Also set up a couple of cash game tables, one play money and one 2c/5c for some fun around the tournament or before/after. Happy to do a last longer etc if anyone fancies it

    If you can't play, don't worry, hoping to make these a more common occurrence.

    This is ONLY open to FTR regulars, no t-shirt for freetrollers

    Also it's 5k starting 3 mins blinds (Gauntlet was 10k 3 mins) so won't last for very long and should be plenty of action

    I believe FTR is rigged to make sure I never win a free t shirt.

    Does this event not start at 8, not 6?

    Also Pascal, please accept me into the group when you get time so I can play.
  20. #20
    Starts at 8, stupid timezones!

    Will fix the calender.

    Accepted everyone now

    I applied to be in the group. Been trying my best to stay away from Pokerstars as I am a U.S. player, but when they came out with the mobile app... Can't wait for the year when I can play real money poker from my cell phone. Hope the wait is not much longer.

    i applied as well , status in stars client still says applied though
  23. #23
    Applied this late because I did not know if I would make today's Gauntlet game. Did not want to be a sitout.

    Accepted you Keith before I made that post and just accepted you now eberetta1
  25. #25
    stars client just has my status as applied though . should that have changed and can't see any touneys . why i click on the FTR home game "it comes up do you want to withdraw your application?" so i can't get into the ftr homegame to see the tourney reg page.
  26. #26
    hmmmm
    just moved off the homegame tab and back on and it comes up member . obviously doesn't update the status while the "home game" tab is open.

    Knew that would happen. Friend says they bought me Church's Fried Chicken and gotta go to his house to have it. Gonna be late to this tourney... hopping in car now. Well, I'll unregister to give everyone a fair chance.

    I think this was the best hand played.

    PokerStars No-Limit Hold'em, 1 Tournament, 40/80 Blinds 10 Ante (3 handed) - PokerStars Converter Tool from http://www.flopturnriver.com

    Pascal (t5,315)
    BB (t765)
    eugmac (Button) (t8,920)

    Hero's M: 59.47

    Preflop: eugmac is Button with J, 7
    Hero bets t160, Pascal calls t120, 1 fold

    Flop: (t430) 5, J, K (2 players)
    Pascal checks, Hero checks

    Turn: (t430) 7 (2 players)
    Pascal checks, Hero bets t240, Pascal calls t240

    River: (t910) 7 (2 players)
    Pascal checks, Hero bets t720, Pascal calls t720

    Total pot: t2,350

    Results below:
    Spoiler:

    Hero had J, 7 (full house, sevens over Jacks).
    Pascal has Q9o.
    Outcome: Hero won t2,350

    I can't believe I spaced this event.

    I played a rather epic HU match with chipeaterman on Sat. in the FTR home-ring-play monies, though.
