    Default Gauntlet X Application Thread



    There are two different ways of applying for the Gauntlet this season.


    Method 1: Members with over 35 posts

    All members with over 35 posts gain automatic free entry into the Gauntlet!

    The application steps are as follows:

    1.



    2.



    You must include your forum username in the Your Name section. Failing to do this will mean your application is rejected and you'll have to apply again.



    Method 2: Members with under 35 posts

    If you have under 35 posts, we will consider your application and allow you to play if we think that it's for the good of FTR - this league is meant to be a celebration of the forum and a way for members to get to know each other!

    If you fall into this category, post in this thread. It'll probably be worth writing a little bit about yourself, as well as why you want to play. If you know someone who will vouch for you that would also help, as well as some quality strategy posts etc



    The league starts on the 7th of October and we will be taking applications up until that date. Members with over 35 posts will be accepted after the 7th, with a few exceptions (e.g. if you are rejected with 5 posts and then spam 30 posts to try and quality automatically!)

    What time are these played again? Time is pretty important for me since my time zone is all kinds of crazy.
    That's how winners play; we convince the other guy he's making all the right moves.

    I so badly want to blast you for this but for some reason can't find the will to. You have to apply through stars home games to become a member of any poker club. Read the OP and follow instructions.

    Up to 17 members in the group

    Everyone who plays will need to put their Pokerstars name in the Gauntlet section of the website on this page: http://www.flopturnriver.com/poker-league/register.php

    This will allow for us to track your results and automatically generate standings. If you've already done this then you'll already be tracked so no problems there!

    The Gauntlet Mail group will be in action this season again. I'll confirm when the reminder emails are sent out when I know.

    Hello Honorable Deciders, Please accept my application for the Gauntlet. If (okay fine, ‘when’ is more probable) I bust out at Bay 101 I’d love to throw down. Thank You -m**e

    Ok let me just say this outloud right here. If you have to ask to be included you're probably not going to be included.

    Excuse me? Then what is the point of METHOD 2? Why state that my application will be considered and that I must post in this thread?

    jyms isn't quite correct. If you show an interest in the site, and a willingness to participate, then we'll consider your application. Post some hand histories, give some solid advice, participate in some discussions, maybe have someone you know put a word in for you. simpledude16 is a good example of that. If you just open this thread without looking anywhere else on the site and post asking to join, it's unlikely you'll be successful. If you do make some posts just to get into this season, and then don't post until the application for the next season, don't expect to be accepted next time - keep that in mind. Hope this clears things up

    Thanks. Big J Money and Xianti could vouch for me, though it's been awhile;

    flopturnriver.com/pokerforum/live-poker/big-j-moneys-home-tourney-may-1-a-88826.html

    If I have a seat someone can email or msg me, I've had enough of jumping through ambiguous hoops.

    Probably would save some time around here if instead of getting offended you posted something like this???

    I did some in-depth research and found proof of straw's relationship with Xianti.



    Straw is the weird-looking asian guy on the left. Xianti is not pictured.

    Unlike some people,i would jump threw hoops and just jump for any good cause.I have been turned down for the moment to join the Gauntlet games and i do fully agree the reason why.I will prove myself and in time i do hope to be a qualified member.I do have 2 questions.
    1. Where is the hoops ?
    2. How high would you like me to jump ?

    Was the fact that Xianti showed his ugly mug here a "vouch" or was it to defend the fact that he is not "Spideyberge the weird-looking asian guy"


    Awesome to see a post by a former "FTRSOP Bracelet winner" Great to see you X

    Haha... That was quite a coincidence. I didn't even know Mike (Straw) had come on here for the Gauntlet. I happened to be wondering what was up with the league just yesterday, only to find that season X starts today!

    I know Straw, but I'm not here to vouch for him, as it's really not for me to say either way.

    Game on! Does the fact that this happens to be Gauntlet "X" mean anything?

    So now I've bought in with my hard earned play money, if I turn up 20 mins late I can still play but I'm just down half a stack or w/e, right?

    Sure, doubt you'll have anywhere near as little as half a stack though!

    Poker is easy, it's winning at poker that's hard.

    Default New member here

    Hi everyone,

    I just signed up to this site. I've been a casual poker player for a couple years, but finally decided to make a real money online account at pokerstars. I wish I would've noticed site sooner, or if the deadline was beyond Oct.7. Is it definitely too late to sign up now? Thanks

    Hi Xianti, I'm new here, but after looking around the site. It seems that Gauntlet "X" is the 10th edition of the Gauntlet (roman numerals).

    I know Straw, but I'm not here to vouch for him, as it's really not for me to say either way.

    Game on! Does the fact that this happens to be Gauntlet "X" mean anything?

    No response yet to my application to join. I hope to play next league series so no great rush to join but thought I would post a reminder anyway.
