Hi Guys and Girls,

To run alongside the Formula One 2014 season I'm inviting all of you to take part in my Whacky Races.

How it works

You don't have to be a Formula One fan to take part and it's open to all real money players on PokerStars.
  • Simply pick a driver from the list below and post your selection in this thread.
  • Then play in the 'Whacky Race' tournament in my home game club.
  • If your finishing position in the tournament matches your chosen drivers finishing position in that weekends Formula one race I will ship you $5

Rules:

You can only pick one driver and your first selection only is counted.

Edited posts will not count and will not be considered.

Basically post what driver you choose and that's it, do not edit your post after that

The tournament in my home game club will always take place before the Formula One Race each weekend.

Divers are taken on a first come, first served basis. You cannot pick a driver thats already taken.

Winners will be shipped funds within 3 days of race ending.

For example, if you choose Fernando Alonso and finish 5th in the home game tournament you'll have to wait and see if Fernando finises 5th in the motor-race. If he does I'll ship you $5

Congrats to Ed for taking down the tournament tonight

Let's see if Rosberg does the business for him tomorrow in the F1 race.

I'll be at the Irish Poker Open on Sunday and Monday so if there's any whacky fivers to be awarded I'll ship them on Tuesday when I'm back home.

Happy Easter Whacky Racers!

Hope you enjoy the Irish Poker Open Raiser.

Looks like for the 4th time in a row I was one place different to my driver - with Nico Rosberg fighting back to 2nd place after a poor start.

Third win in a row for Lewis Hamilton.

Think your whacky fivers are safe this week.

Thanks again for putting on this fun competition Raiser.

See you in Spain in 3 weeks time.



Ed

Cheers Ed, just on break now after Level 4 with 12K chips, average 16K with blinds at 15/300 .. early days

Taking Lewis this time around was a little whacky strategy from me ... thought he would finish 1st or 2nd.

I'll double-check the results when I get home just in case but if there is no winner Spain will be a bumper pot of $10
