    Default Corporate Poker Tourney

    Hey guys,Was just thinking of holding a Poker tourney for my work (a semi team building exercise PLUS an excuse to play some poker ;-) ). What I would like to know is the best way of going about it - ie. where to hold it/legality/costs, etc... Only going to have 20 - 30 ppl involved maybe a $15 - $20 buy in + a rebuy or two... Any help would be gratefulCheers,Nick

    Unless you can do it legally such as with one of these guys, for gods sakes don't hold it yourself. I don't think your boss would be too happy with you landing him in court for illegal gambling operations! If you do it yourself, it can't be for money...if the company wants to put up prizes such as a free day off, or gifts or something non financial you'll stay out of trouble...Be careful. Nothing hurts ones career like landing your boss in the slammer !Tam

    Thanks guys, I will certainly run this pass higher management (prolly not a good time though - one of our senior managers has just resigned due to health reasons...) but should get one up and running soon hopefully, have had a lot of interested parties at work...
