The Metafilter No Limit Hold 'Em Tournament is set for this Saturday, June 4th at 21:00 EST. (Old thread) (Wiki page)
posted by ODiV to MetaFilter Gatherings at 6:22 AM (26 comments total)

The $5.50 No Limit Hold em tournament will be held on Full Tilt Poker. I suggest between now and the tourny that you sign up, make sure the software works, and play a few practice ones.

The tournament can be found in the private section and its number is 756160. The password to register is the word before the "at" in the email in my profile.

My icq# is 5159963, my MSN is saforum at odiv dot net.

As luck would have it, seems to be having some problems so the best place to reach me by email is "" on google's email service. Or you could ask questions in this thread as well.

I can provide transfers of the $5.50 buy-in to ten people. Please email me in order to facilitate these transfers.

This is a neat idea. Good work at putting it together.

This is really weird. I missed the old thread, and somehow scheduled an IRL five-dollar poker night on exactly that evening with several local friends (including Mefites splatta and nomad). There'll probably be less beer and less yelling at your game. But probably more poker playing, too.

I'd like to go to Plutor's game. :)

Hey it's actually near me.

Okay, I'm signed up and can also arrange transfers for people who need them. (accepting payment via player to player on other sites, or via paypal)

You can email me at, or possibly catch me on #mefi IRC.

Well, I was going to post and I say that I would be in and suggest that raise the ante up to $100 to make it worthwhile... but then I saw that mosch joined, and thats just not fair.

I don't mind throwing money away while I lose at poker, but I'd like to have some chance to win. Mosch is like l33t p0ker pr0, so I think I will be out.

I would really like to join, but this Saturday would be impossible for me.

Good luck to all and count me in for the next tournament.

I'd also be in but for the timing. I'll be there for the next one, or any weeknight games. Thanks for organizing...

Don't worry Dios, I'm pretty sure I'll be the first one out.

Good luck y'all. If it weren't for my crippling gambling addiction* I'd be right in there with you.

* "crippling gambling addiction" = "total inability to bet intelligently"

Humor me.

21:00 EST is 6:00 p.m. in California, right?

Yeah, and I think he meant 21:00 EDT. But that's a separate issue.
posted by knave at 2:01 PM on June 2, 2005

Timing and interest both in my favour, but a Mac with only Windows 95 running Virtual PC means no can do :-(

i would also like to say, wow, is the single most difficult and stellar email address i've seen in a while.

anyway, guess i'll sit this one out with the other mactards.

Well... Only five so far and under five hours to go. :(

We need 9 or the tournament gets cancelled. If anyone is waiting. Now would be the time to join up.

One more, we need one more!
posted by Capn at 4:50 PM on June 4, 2005

I might just invite a friend of mine to round out the 9. That cool with you guys?
posted by ODiV at 5:27 PM on June 4, 2005

great idea!
posted by drscroogemcduck at 5:38 PM on June 4, 2005

Whoops. Looks like I jumped the gun and now we have 10.

Oh well...
posted by ODiV at 5:56 PM on June 4, 2005

I was playing in a live game and couldn't make it. Who won?
posted by HSWilson at 5:54 PM on June 5, 2005

Ok, I just saw the wiki, sorry.
posted by HSWilson at 5:55 PM on June 5, 2005

Yeah, I had to go out that night, so was unable to do some sort of summary after. Sorry.

If we have another one, I'll make sure to take screenshots and the like.
