Default Team Event No.2

There will be a Team Event on the weekend of 17th/18th Nov. There will be 2 team games on the Saturday and 3 team games on the Sunday.

Estimated team sizes are 4 or 5 members per team. The first 4 events will be 2 players from each team, the final event will be full participation.

22nd Oct until 25th Oct 10:00 ET - Team Captain volunteering and seconding/thirding (see here)
25th Oct 11:00 ET - Captains Announced
25th Oct 12:00 ET - Sign-up list opens for team event members (Sign-up Sheet)
12th Nov 12:00 ET - Sign-up list closes
12th Nov 13:00 ET until 14th Nov 17:00 ET - Captains select there first 2 team members on a rotational basis (choose one, next captain chooses one etc)
14th Nov - All points schemes/details put into Team Event forum
14th Nov 18:00 ET - The rest of the sign-ups are put into teams, and the full team line-ups are announced in the Team Event forum
17th Nov - Team Event starts

During the last team event, I gave a way loads of free money, and this encouraged a few too many cash whores. The previous captains know what I am talking about I am sure. So this time it will be different. Each member will pay $1 to enter, and I will add $2 of my own money for every $1 of members. This will make up the prize pool for the winning team.

Each event will be a $2.20 buy-in, and captains should decide with their team members who plays what, and how much of any winnings from each game is going back into the team kitty, and things like that.

The whole team event will take place that weekend, and the Team Event forum will be made a main forum on the 14th Nov and will contain the points scheme, leaderboards etc etc.

Venice and Jen,

I am going to be on vacation the weekend of the Team Event, and won't be able to participate.

But I want to show my support for Surfers Poker, and for what you two are doing here. How can I do so?

Can I stake one or two Surfers Pokers members by paying their $1.00 entry fee?

I would be looking for good players with good standing at Surfers Poker who are low on BR.

But I don't know how to make the mechanics of a stake work with Team Event.

Thanks.

Staking an individual wont work, because every individual is competing for a team, contributing to a team, and getting prizes for a team.

Sponsoring (or more to the point, staking) a team rather than a player is also not permitted due to the "buying money" rule in Surfers Poker money added events.

If you want to support the event you can contribute to the prize pool by all means, or run a sweep and add money to that sweep, things like that. But if you are looking primarily for a stake then that isnt posssible/allowed I am afraid.

In the first post of this thread, there is a link "Sign-Up Sheet" - that is where you sign up

The first post of this thread also contains the timeline of the event. Your captain will organise specifics such as who plays which games
