In an effort to make electronic communication a little easier,
we will be changing our email accounts. I know bigstackspokerleague.net is a lot to type, then throw in "registration"
with that, and I'm sure you're thinking we need something a little shorter. Well, here it is!

I will gradually stop using the bigstackspokerleague.net accounts
over the next 30 days to give
it a little bit of a transition time.
seems to be confusion with scoring, especially at the busier venues. I'm going to try to explain as best as possible.
If you still are confused, feel free to call or email me, and I'll explain it personally.
There are two attendance
numbers in play. I post on the home page what the OVERALL NIGHTLY VENUE ATTENDANCE must be for double (sometimes triple)
chips. This means the total number players who play at the venue from start to finish. Actual number of bodies
that pass through the entire night. This has nothing to do with how many players are in the building at one time, or
in any one particular game.
EXAMPLE - DOUBLE CHIPS, 20 PLAYERS; TRIPLE CHIPS, 30 PLAYERS.
A venue might have 17 players to start the night. After game one 3 players leave and
2 people show up. Overall attendance is now 19. After game two 4 players leave but 5 new ones show up. Overall
attendance is now 24, so we're at double chips. Throughout the night 4 more players come in, so overall nightly attendance
finishes at 28, which means that all scoring will be double. Every SNG game pays top 5, double chips.
THE 26 OR MORE IN A SINGLE GAME SCORING DOES NOT COME INTO PLAY,
AS EACH GAME IS A SIT-N-GO AND ONLY
HAS 10 PLAYERS
EXAMPLE - DOUBLE CHIPS, 20 PLAYERS; TRIPLE CHIPS, 30 PLAYERS. MULTI-TABLE VENUE
venue might have 24 players to start game one. We're already at double chips for the night. During game one 3
new players arrive get in before the game is closed. This means that 26 or more players (27) went through game one.
This means that game one will pay TOP 15 SCORING (see below). After game one 6 players leave, and 4 new players
show up for game two. Overall attendance is now 31, which means that scoring for the night is triple chips. No
one else comes in, so that means 25 players went through game two (the 21 that were remaining from game one and the 4 new
players who came in). Since less than 26 players went through game 2, TOP 10 SCORING applies (see below). Games three
and four are played, each with 21 players. Both of these games will be TOP 10 SCORING, since less than 26 players went
through that game. All 4 games will pay triple, because of the overall attendance for the night.
1 will pay TOP 15 SCORING, because 26 or more players went through game 1.
Games 2, 3 and 4 will pay TOP TEN SCORING,
because less than 26 players went through those games.
All games, regardless of top 10 or 15, will be triple chips,
because there were 31 total players for the night.
DOES THAT HELP?

Paul Lewis Memorial Tournament of Champions! She outlasted the field and battled Samantha Tonnellier heads up to take
down her second tournament in a row.
Pictures for the tournament and the last two quarterlies
should be up by tomorrow night. I made significant progress yesterday in downloading and getting the pages ready.
I appreciate your patience as I've been catching up.

Florida Winter Quarterly!

NEW FOR THE WINTER QUARTER
Well, we've had lots of feedback regarding the double, triple and sometimes quadruple chips nights. So, we're going
to incorporate some new scoring on regular games while scaling back double, triple and quadruple chip nights.
Here's how it's going to work:
| MULTI TABLE GAMES |
|Less Than 26 Players ||26 or more players |
| ||2500 ||1st ||3500 || |
| ||2000 ||2nd ||3000 || |
| ||1500 ||3rd ||2500 || |
| ||1000 ||4th ||2000 || |
| ||800 ||5th ||1500 || |
| ||500 ||6th ||1000 || |
| ||400 ||7th ||900 || |
| ||300 ||8th ||800 || |
| ||200 ||9th ||700 || |
| ||100 ||10th ||600 || |
| ||0 ||11th ||500 || |
| ||0 ||12th ||400 || |
| ||0 ||13th ||300 || |
| ||0 ||14th ||200 || |
| ||0 ||15th ||100 || |
| || || || || |
| || Same rules still apply to single tables:
||pays top 3 || |
||pays top 4 || |
||pays top 5 || |
||pays top 6 || |
||14 or more players
||pays top 10 || |
| || || || |
| SIT N GO'S|
| No change to Sit N Go's. Stil 10 players per table, still paying top 5. |
There may be occasions
where we will sit 11 total players for a SNG (for example, the last game of the night and there are 11, or even 12 players
left). We will attempt to only sit 10 at a time, but the need to sit 11 may arise due to time constraints (remember,
we will try to seat everyone - imagine if you are that last player that isn't going to get sat, you'd want for us to get to
you as well).
New bonus prizes for the following (in each area):
$50 Mini-Deepstacks Seat for the player with the most chips for the quarter
Mini-Deepstacks Seat for the player with the most wins for the quarter
