    Event Gauntlet Season XI: finished won by Keith

    Ok So here is what I started with and scheduled the First month of games on the PokerStars Home game page. Anyone that is a member of FTR and has posted regularly is eligible. There are some exceptions to who can play in this. This comes down to the admins and mods. If you have to ask if you can play it's probably unlikely unless and FTR Veteran member is the one asking. I only put in the first few events. I want to have room to change the game times and formats in later games. I will try and run between 20 and 24 games which is about 12 weeks. This will allow enough people to find time to get in enough games to make it fair for everyone. Your top 12 finishes will be what counts. I need someone that knows how to handicap these point systems to either explain them to me to do or to run the points. I want to allow for both field size, placing and maybe some kind of minimum bonus for games played.

    ------

    To signup for the Gauntlet, follow these steps below:

    1) Create a free FTR Forum account. The Gauntlet is only open to registered users.

    2) If you don't already have it, download the free PokerStars software from www.pokerstars.com. (Anyone can play, even those from the US!)

    3) Open the main poker lobby, then click on the Home Games tab. Click the 'Join a Poker Club' button. Enter my Club ID number: 907696. Enter my Invitation Code: Iwannaplaythegauntlet. This will place you in the queue and we will approve your membership within 24 hours.

    4) Link your PokerStars and FTR accounts. This so we know who you are on PokerStars. (Failure to do so will mean you are not earning points for any games you play and therefore have no chance in winning.)

    You are not an official member of the Gauntlet until you complete all 4 steps.

    ------

    This is the tentative schedule. Only part of April is set up to go. We will work on changing the rest as we go. Majority rules. I will also post prizes information after we have an idea how many will be playing.

    green is scheduled games red are complete


    EDIT: There are quite a few names registered that I don't recognize. Just so people know, You can join the Gauntlet as a new member to FTR but you will not be able to stay in the gauntlet and win prizes as an invisible member. 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.

    Getting a good group. Still wondering about the scoring and where to post it. The stars home group will score every tourney so the score won't be right, Something to work on this week I guess

    I've allowed everyone in so far, if you don't see your name in the club, you probably didn't register right. Jack?

    I don't expect the first few Wed games to get too big of a show. I think the Sunday events will get more players. I still have to work out a scoring system where you earn points depending on how many players are in the tourney. If Wednesdays are always going to be slow turn outs then I might switch the day.

    By the way, Registering but no showing won't count in the points total.

    We are actually going to postpone this to get the word out. In talking to a few people they hadn't noticed it was starting and they really want to play. I don't want to take waway what happened so far so if it comes down to a tie break we will use this game to make a decision. But we need more players or why bother.

    FTR is going to be kicking in some prizes and money for this event so I want to make sure it is competitive and successful. We are going to start on the 16th and I will work out the scoring as well.

    u cant start a league then shut down and restart 2 weeks later, just because there was a low turn out for that game , get a grip the all new when the league was starting. what about the players that turned up.

    Why do you care? Would you rather play in 3 man tournaments?

    This isn't a democracy, it's a dictatorship so FTR can do anything it wants, just as you can decide to play or not. Instead of FTR giving away some FTR gear and tourney tickets they are throwing a couple hundred dollars in to the prize pool to make up for the fact that we need to hold off. I personally don't want to play in a league where a bunch of people missed out on the beginning because they were off playing real poker in real places for real life changing money.

    IamSavy hit's it on the head, do you really want to play against 4 or 5 people all season? We aren't restarting the tourney because of the low turn out for one game but because there was a mix up on both the Social media, Calendar and other communications behind the scenes.

    OK, posted new schedule and it's locked for dates for the first 10 games. They are also the right dates since nobody noticed the first time.

    This schedule will stay for the first 10 games and if we need to swap a night for another for the second half to make it fair and more available we will. I cna only put in a few games at a time in the stars client so if we want to change up the structure, again, majority rules.

    Cool, looking forward to the second start of the gauntlet. Thanks for putting this together, jyms.

    One minor comment -- Apr 20 is Easter so turnout might be really low, esp from the US since it's right in the middle of the day. I don't have a good solution, but I thought I'd point it out.

    20 games, best 12 count. Sounds like a good chance for someone to make up some good points. Everyone will get a chance to make up their games so no need to sweat.

    Yay, Easter! I know that story. Back in Jesus days, little white furry rabbits ran around shitting chocolate eggs for children to find.

    Fun fact - the day before he started fasting for 40 days and 40 nights, Jesus invented the first ever pancake, when he threw some batter mix and milk into a frying pan in a desperate attempt to take on some carbohydrate before he starved himself for some reason.

    Works for me.

    Altho -- it's top 10 games, right? If not, you should update the OP. Also, you have 20 weeks listed in the table, which would be 40 games. You might want to chop off the last 8 or so since the plan isn't to go past 12 weeks.

    It was top 12 so you have to play at least two other games to make it (fixed). As for total weeks, it's two games a week so I have 20 listed, that makes 10 weeks

    Thanks for accepting me into the league and restarting this thing on an even footing for everyone.
    It was May 2013 that I played in the last gauntlet league and only played in the last two
    gauntlet games of the season. Ready for my first complete season.
