Thread: How About A Poker Tourney For An Entry Into....

    Exclamation How About A Poker Tourney For An Entry Into....

    ....the LVH Super Book NFL contest? I always tried to get one going at Phoenix Sports, but they were afraid it would violate some sort of rule which was ridiculous.

    I mean, we're only talking about a $1500 entry + about $250 for a proxy. There's no reason that we couldn't get one going since we already have a poker tournament going each week, so I'll bet there's plenty of interest.

    If we got a $40 entry fee and got 50 players...which we should get easily...that would cover the entry fee + proxy, and air fare to go to Vegas to sign up.

    What do you say JK or Kinger or whoever would run this thing. We could make a name for EOG as the Premier sports gambling site!

    Depending on the weekend/weekday this would take place I'd be game. Sounds like a nice idea. Remaining money would go to 2nd, 3rd place depending on entries.

    Great idea on paper... but like Bricker said... most guys wouldn't put up $20.

    We had over a dozen guys put up $500 for a wsop main event seat in '06 (the shrink/eog covered the shortfall). Times have changed.

    I'd pay $50 and if I won I'd give the entry to someone who has a chance of actually winning the contest. I'm sure you can get like 30 regs to play it to make up the $1500 entry.

    I'm sure that if we put this up as a contest, we would get 50 players. I don't see why people are being so negative. They don't play in the other contests because they aren't playing for much. This would be a chance to win over $300,000 for a small price. I'd bet we'd get 100 entries.

    I'd guess the amount would be $60 for 30 people to cover the proxy cost. King message me where to send the check to you. I'm not going to do the $50 for the other contest just because I went back to Bovada and I don't want to put money anywhere else to play poker right now (hint hint). It would be fun to watch someone from here try to win the contest.

    So now you need 29 people.

    If you guys can come up with enough people, I will do the proxy part as a favor to Kinger. Now you need 30 in to make it happen

    Yes.

    My guess is this would be more likely to happen at a slightly higher buy-in ($100-$150?) requiring less entries...
