I am looking for 8 poker players to compete against RayVarek in response to his challenge to take on 8 players from the PSO monthly league. This will be a 13.50$ NL Holdem knockout competition scheduled for Tuesday 3rd May at 3.00pm EST. The stakes and time schedule are flexible and I would welcome feedback on both those topics.

These are the players that have caught my eye in no particular order and I would be grateful if they could indicate willingness and availability to play in this thread. Simply copy and paste the list, mark AW against your name if you can play and mark NA against your name if you do not wish to play or be considered.

ThanatOs 666
Damen 1
Easychips4u
Effsea
Darkman61
Toonlad 2
Cosmo 342
Dr3am3R59
Labutestude 7
Monskunk4
Annie_22at90
Strahilius
Lisbonroar
Sandtrap777
X646X
Doob818
Steveis not
Spike8998
Alfranco
Alphaaero
Brkn80
Sacsain
Bman2004
Mol_Je
Zz suglia
Drew 300
Ericlee
Bogweed1964

This is not an extensive list, and I may have missed many that wish to participate, if so please add your name to the list.

There are other notable exclusions but this is on the ground that many excellent players here do not participate in the league and are therefore not eligible to play.

If we get more than eight people willing to play I am then left with the difficult task of choosing the final eight. Everyone is welcome to make their case for inclusion here and I will take that into account in my final decision.

In the event that we are unable to get 8 players I will take the unprecedented step of competing myself

I hope to post the final eight on Thursday evening CET and will confirm that the contest is taking place on the following Tuesday morning CET.

In the coming weeks I will be organising a similar roll call for American players who wish to participate in a play money version of this contest.


PS Could RayVareck also confirm in this thread that these stakes and schedule are agreeable to him?

Not sure why there seems to be a preoccupation with bounties for the home games, but whatever you wish.

My case? Well I didn't think Ray would play without me

Sorry about that Eric, should have realised that you are from the US.

And how could I forget Il Cote who has won the league two months??? Apologies my man.

Keep them coming folks!

Update the list tomorrow everyone. Late night for me and Man poo beat Schalke04... yohoo

Are you still in for this Ray? If so, I would request that we extend the challenge beyond a single table, and if you agree I will even play as well.

TC

OH Drywallman effsea is hosting the challenge and I am sure he will provide some way of it being railed.

Thanks

TC

Unfortunately I have to pass on this, as I can't play for real money "due to government regulations in my area".

I appreciate the consideration though.

Sorry would love to play but being 3pm est. the time doesn't work for me since I'm back to work. If it was around 8pm Est.. I would probably play. Would be an honour to play against some of these great players in a single table game!!!
