  1. **Note: I personally am running this contest and it is not sanctioned, endorsed or in any way associated with the P5s business.**

    I'm running an individual PLB contest started February 12 and ending February 19 (two Sundays). I plan to run a team and/or individual contest during Poker Maximus and figured it wouldn’t hurt to have a one week competition before then to test it out. And a little extra motivation to grind doesn’t hurt...

    Dates are fixed because those are the only weekends I can play in February. If anyone else wants to run the contest, we can change the dates.

    Tournaments: All freezeouts and all rebuys (FYI - we could limit to 40c for rebuys. The 100c, 55r and 75r only get 75+ runners on Sunday so PLBs won’t be available during the week. This is up for discussion though, let me know your thoughts).
    Buyin: $100 per person
    Scores: Top 10 PLB scores per person
    Payout: 1-5 winner takes all; 6-14 pays top 2 (75/25); 15+ pays top 3 (50/30/20)

    Post here with your name and skin if you’re interested. Your name also must be posted in your P5s profile to be eligible.

    Will post details for sending/collecting funds once we’re closer to the competition. FYI - I may also need to include an extra $5 per entrant to pay for a scorekeeper and/or to facilitate skin to skin transfers via an intermediary. Still working out those logistics.

    Good luck and feel free to share your thoughts on any of the competition details.

  3. In. Not sure why we need to exclude anything though. Would be simpler and better imo to just let any/all that qualify for plbs count. 1phatcat1 (hero)

  4. Great to see someone running a contest for US players. Was just thinking the other day it would be cool to have something like this.

    Any thought towards doing something for lower ABI players? Maybe using the Tourney King Leaderboards as a guide for how to bifurcate the groups.

    Yeah I agree. I edited OP. Only issue is the 55r/100c aren't tracked during the week b/c <75 entrants, but I'm fine with counting them whenever the necessary number of entrants is hit. Most likely will just count the 2 sundays, but that's fine and people that win them on sundays should get rewarded anyway.

    I think we can definitely do something for lower ABI players during Poker Maximus. It's a bit of a pain to run, and a 1 week competition with two tiers will take more time than I have right now, unfortunately. In addition, I want to run something fairly straightforward and work out any kinks prior to March and adding two tiers will make that more difficult.

    But in March I'll definitely have a low and high tier that will run during the entire series.

    Tourney King would work as well. My issue with tourney king is once midnight hits on the last day, it resets and you can't see final standings. In addition, I don't like the way tourney king measures rebuys.

    I said that because I know he is a strong opponent and it has nothing to do with slow rolling or hate. Personally I had no idea he was Eskimo and based on your comments you have some growing up to do. You really think a slow roll is going to get me tilted or off my game? Sorry for derail Tyson gl in your challenge.
