    Default Crown 8game

    Hello all,

    I have spoken to a few people now and there has been rather suprising interest in a live 8game at the amazing Crown casino. I am not talking about the 200/400 that went last year. I am thinking of something smaller.

    The key thoughts to consider here are:

    - Is there actual interest
    - What stakes would be sustainable
    - When is it best to run

    Now in my opinion, 20/40 would be a good starter level. I'd suggest 8handed with a time charge. Perhaps smaller stakes would be better to encourage more randoms. I'd suggest Thursday or Sunday.

    We would get a list and starting time from these forums.

    All opinions welcome and appreciated.

    JT

    I'd probably play but I'd be more comfortable if it were 10/20 so it's only 5/10 for NL and PL.

    It will be 5/T blinds for NL and PLO

    The blinds in the FL games will be 10/20 for '20/40' limit.

    Buyin of $200 min $1000 max same as Pokerstars.

    Sigh. I will probably confuse limits for blinds until the day I die.

    I think 20/40 is about right to start, maybe we should have a 9th game of chess.

    So it looks like Tsapy and Seabeast and I are the only locals so far, like I said we need about seven more to have any chance of running this, any ideas people?

    In the past, we've tried to get this game up and had a full table of eight players.

    However, although people agree etc, everytime it has been put on the board, it never gets up.

    I'm not saying there aren't enough players to fill the table, its just going to be hard to get them all done to Crown at the same time.
