I was just reading about the WCOOP 2018
World Championship of Online Poker - so exciting!
is in September 2-17 are 60 events, buy-ins from $2.20 to $25,000
On September 5th is a $55 NLHE [deep stack] guaranteed $250k, start 8pm PDT
How about this?
we save up monies separate (not daily budget money)..
we enter this
we see which of us gets the furthest!
for our APT Team I shall get a special ball cap made, with your name on back and front say "APT Online Champion" and I will mail it to our winner ok?
come on lets play this - be so much fun and we can see each other progress (I kcorbee) there
who down for this????
It looks like you're new here. If you want to get involved, click one of these buttons!
ok I in!
who with me????
Interesting idea and I'd be up for it other than for the timing. An 11pm start where I am would take me way into the wee hours of the morning if I played (and didn't bust early). Maybe one with an earlier start time?
I like the thought of getting some competition going among a group of us so we can all push each other to get better. The single biggest thing I think this site is missing is an active community. Software and bots are fine but I think the best training players can get is through interacting with other players. Right now, there seems to be half a dozen active posters here. Not enough to achieve a critical mass where ideas and strategies could be put forward and robustly debated.
Was watching an Alexander Fitzgerald video yesterday and one of the most important things he said was key to succeeding was surrounding yourself with like-minded people. I think this is true, for poker and for everything else. Aspiring poker players would do better within a community of poker players rather than on their own. We need people to challenge our ideas and make us think.
ohhh I sad no one wants join in this... I did pick a medium time for APT.... personally I rather play in $55 main event one for 1 million but it starts late 10pm (my time) i think...
I happy do it for any of the events, start times.. if APT friends like?
Warlock you pick ok? here list
just not more than $55 thing ok?
I goin play in WCOOP, I just hope APT friends come too
Warlock I agree... nice if we have more community. I have no poker friends other than APT people. I wish more people join into the forum things like I HAVE A PLAN
I see so many people read them wow... but few comment and join in, I get private messages of some stuff and wonder why no say public
No be SHY, i am brand new... maybe if you and Highfive no make things that technical maybe scare new people?
How about this?
Mr. Blay make a poker playing table, where any member could drop-in and play anytime... a cash game thing... Warlock could say "its Friday lets play some cards at 5pm who down for that?"
could be lots of chat, fellowship and fun?
@krista = I looked at the schedule and it looks like they have the starting times posted in military time, so 11:00 is 11am, not 11pm (8am PST not 8pm). That's fine for me but may be too early for you. The $55 1M guaranteed event would start at 7am PST. Again, I can easily do this but you'd have to crawl out of bed very early
Actually, never mind. US players can't access Pokerstars for real money. We can do something on Betonline or Ignition (most of us anyway depending on state). The US couldn't figure out how to tax online poker after Black Friday so decided to make it hard for us to play for money. Its a real shame, especially since they are in the process of legalizing sports betting.
ekkk ok .. this just another bad Krista idea ... hahaha
Not a bad idea - we just need to find another site we can all play on.
i a poor leader I shy - you do it ok?
you know i can make a play for fun thing on PokerStars but it tournament i think
ok Warlock this what I goin do
i goin play in WCOOP $55 main event
you wrong is in my time 10pm see..... (PT is pacific time)
I know i loose my monies but i want to try - i can afford it - i know pros be play it too
and it no count my account of start $500 - is extra ok?
we goin see how far I get and i goin play it each year
will be a zillion players - my goal is get past 1/2 of the field... and cocky blonde b*tch wants get into money hahaha
(and if I win the 300k we all goin to Tahiti holiday hahaha)
@krista said: "you wrong is in my time 10pm see..... (PT is pacific time)"
I was wrong? Can't be. I was already wrong once this month and what are the odds of it happening twice? LOL.
Being serious for a moment - I looked at the schedule again and the start times do appear to be in military format. That would make 11:00 11am, like 16:00 is 4pm (in whatever time zone you are using). The latest start time I saw listed was for 17:00 or 5pm. Just want you to be sure you don't make a mistake and miss out. I did that once and it was not fun.
I owe you huge apology! you 100% right... i see thing listed as WCOOP - 58 - L and assumed the L meant late ... it absolutely isn't means 'low' so yes its 10am my time
guess i need roll out of bed early that sunday lol
ty likely saved me $55... i never register early anything anything, so good to know
and when i stupid don't be so damn nice correct me ok?
lol - you're welcome Krista.
Krista blushes with embarrassment sighs
