I was thinking about doing something like this, but I know very little about poker rules. :S

I guess I will shoot for something like this at gencon. can anyone say "Twisted Poker"?

for the alt group, you could run a game using commons/UC and rares and not the trent chips. Then as people get knocked out they could be added...just a though

You'd be welcome as an alternate for this one, and would also be welcome to come and learn about the tournament structure. etc.

I don't know when youd want to do poker at GC, but I would likely be in.

The problem would be as more people are added, they would then need to play with trent chips.

Also, there are space considerations to be concerned with, as we need to make sure we have enough tables.

thank you, wade, for the invite. I would love to be an observer.

as for running a game or alt table, i'm not sure I would be the best choice.

I was thinking maybe a small game in the crown plaza during gencon. I was wanting to introduce some new angles as well. I am calling it "Twisted Poker".

We don’t have a 4th dealer yet either,
But there are some other options
We need to look into,
