New Jersey GSSS Contest

Recommended Posts

Neither Pocketfives or Partypoker/Borgata are responsible or affiliated for/with any of this.

Ok ladies and gents, it's that time of the year again. The granddaddy of NJ poker series The GSSS

This draft is going to be an auction draft, which I believe is far superior to snake draft when we only have 4-6 guys on a team. It is much more fair to every captain, who would have an equal chance on every available player.

All captains will meet with me in a skype room the night of the draft. It will also be on Twitch

Each captain will start with a fixed budget. One by one every available player will be put up on the block and the captains will have 45 seconds to bid on said player. During the last 7 seconds of bidding, anytime a captain makes a bid the clock will be reset to 7 seconds and start again until the timer runs out or someone else bids higher, resetting the clock to 7 seconds again. This process continues until all players are bid on. I will be resetting the clock manually (on screen) as the under 7 seconds bids come in so it will not all be exactly precise (as I also monitor the bidding in the room Maybe Dennis can do this). I hope all of you understand I/we will get it as close to right as possible and play no favorites.

Depending on amount of players we will have 5-6 players a team (including captains)

Total cash earned is how we will keep track (Top 30 scores per team, must include at least 1 score for every player or you cannot win)

All players who declare themselves eligible to be drafted MUST (IN THIS THREAD) say how much they plan on playing this series. We need an honest assessment so there are no whisperings and back room deals going on between captains/players before the draft.

So now we need captains and players

The Draft can be either Friday or Saturday night right before the comp 9:30 or 10 works for me either night. If you want to be a captain let me know and which night works better for you or either one .

In terms of the actual competition, I am going to need all Captains to keep a running total of each teams scores and update it as frequently as possible. Im not going through every lobby searching for every name. You list each score as they happen in the comp thread and Ill go and check the lobby .

What: GSSS Auction Draft

When: Either Friday or Saturday night 9:30

Where: On Twitch

Who: You filthy animals

Why: Because degen

How much: 150 bucks

Payable to Dennis via paypal. PM him for his information "Ricanphenom"

I hope I covered it all. Any questions concerns please let me know. All are welcome, please show interest in here (and if you want to be a captain) and how often you plan on playing the GSSS

Price is pretty much non negotiable as we will never please everybody. I actually think it should be more, but am trying to make it welcoming to everybody. Im willing to listen to arguments as to changing or adjusting the Top 30 cashes count rule.

Let me know if I missed anything

I will be happy to keep score in a Google Doc spreadsheet for everybody. Can we make this pocketfives PLB formula based rather than total dollars as we did in previous contests? Total dollars is too heavy towards one big win in my opinion.

I'm in and I agree with seedload. A mincash should have SOME value, and it has much more value when doing leaderboard points than it does when someone binks 20K in the main and then the competition is just over.

As far as my volume, as of now I've been playing Sunday-Thursday and taking Fridays and Saturdays off and that would most likely be what I do for this series. I'll be playing every buy in level (with like a 10% chance I don't play the 1K but odds are I'll be in).

Thanks for setting this up Rich/Dennis/anyone else putting work in!

Agree, thats fine if you want to do the work.

As far as the winning team needs to have everybody cash rule, I think Im going to amend it to the amount of players who need to cash on each team is the same number as the amount of players on the team with the least amount of players on it .

In other words If Team A has 5 players, Teams B-E have 6 players, then the winning team has to have at least 5 players cash on it. There is no minimum or maximum amount of players per team. If Team A has only 2 players and Team B has 5 Team C has 7 etc, then the winning team only needs 2 players to contribute to be eligible.

I'm in and i also agree with seedload regarding scoring.

Will probably play around 75% of all $215 and lower buy ins.

$500/$1k im undecided but leaning towards playing just the bigger $500 events but not the Tuesday 20k's or the 1k.

Definitely more of a cash player, but i donk around from time to time in the MTT"s.

And much thanks to you guys for setting this up, was hoping something like this would run.

I might miss the first sunday if i make day 2 of parx $1650 but should be playing nearly every other day. I'll play all of the $215 and lower buyins and some of the $500 and !ks. Hopefully Party/Borgata have addressed the satellite issues that have been a problem every time they have a series.

In - probably about half the schedule it looks like - whatever is still open 9-9:30, so probably the 7 and 7:30 starts, some of the 8's pending what time the turbo registration closes. None of the earlier weekend tourneys. Probably no Omaha.

Would suggest modifying the everyone must score rule to everyone must have a score count. So, could be a 0 instead of a DQ.

I'm in. Will play a minimum of 15-20 up to 215 bi. I will likely play more if my results are not great because I want to win. I should have decent amount of tickets and T$ to fire by the time it starts so LFG.

Thanks to everyone who set this up and gl.

The way I look at it is, hey this is a team competition, and all members of a team should contribute. I dont know if you saw but I modified the rule so that you only need to have the amount of people on the winning team cash equal to the amount of players on the smallest team. ie: If Team A only drafts 3 players for a Total of 4, and all other teams drafted more than that. All teams need to have only 4 players cash regardless of how many they have on their roster.

If more people like it your way and are vocal about it, Ill be happy to change it. Not trying to be a dictator or act like this is My competition. The one thing I wont change is the price point. Too many different perspectives and literally infinite choices. The other issues have more of a Yes/No type of solution to them for the most part.

We also need some folks who want to be captain. Looks like we have 15ish interested players so far, hope we can get that to 30. Spread the word on Social media and at the casino.

For those who are ready to ship the buy in for the contest,send me a PM for further instructions. The deadline to send payment is by Friday at 11pm. If I get funds after this cut off, imma decline it and you get your funds back. Through the week I'll share my spreadsheet via google docs so you can see people who are interested and who paid. Thanks.

Its just a really silly rule in general...something bizarre could come up where someone cant play as much as they thought and it will be hard for them to cash once. Odds are everyone will prob cash once bc theres so many fucking events..but please get rid of it. If two people crush and their worst player didn't feel like playing for xxx reason you cant penalize them bc they didn't chose to have that person on their team.
