CHANGE TO THE BSPL MINI-DEEPSTACKS AT THE DAYTONA POKER ROOM

Beginning in June, the BSPL Mini-Deepstacks tournaments will be moving to the
SECOND SATURDAY
of every month.

Start time will remain at 11:10am.

Our next Mini-Deepstacks tournament will be Saturday, August 12th.

NEW SUNDAY SCORING - CENTRAL FLORIDA
Regular chips at both the Clermont Bowling Alley and Long Shot Bar and Billiard
Double chips if you earn chips at both venues
Triple chips if you earn 1 win at both venues
25,000 chip bonus if you earn three wins between both venues.
Any win earned for the triple challenge must have at least 10 players

A few of you have expressed that I'm not being considerate of the players who only play one venue.  Please keep in mind that I don't think of the individual player.  I think of the players as a whole.  If you don't want to play both venues, that's your choice.  I'm giving everyone the same opportunity, and it's up to you to make the choice of playing at just one venue, or making the drive for both.

NEW SUNDAY SCORING - VOLUSIA
Regular chips at Uncle Waldo's, Port Hole and Just 1 More
Double chips if you earn chips at Uncle Waldo's and either Port Hole or Just 1 More
Triple chips if you earn 1 win at
Uncle Waldo's and either Port Hole or Just 1 More
25,000 chip bonus if you earn three wins between

Uncle Waldo's and either Port Hole or Just 1 More

Any win earned for the triple challenge must have at least 10 players

ANNOUNCEMENT
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!

To register for a tournament:     bsplpoker@gmail.com
To send an email directly to Jim:   bspljim@gmail.com

I will gradually stop using the bigstackspokerleague.net accounts
over the next 30 days to give it a little bit of a transition time.

There 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.  SIT-N-GO VENUE 
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 
A 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. 
Game 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.

Congratulations to Midge Serignese, winner of the 2017 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.

Congratulations to Midge Serignese, winner of the Volusia Winter Quarterly!  
She defeated John Browning to win the tournament.  Pictures from the fall quarterly and the
winter quarterly will be posted later this week.

Congratulations to Curtis Schultheis, winner of the Centrla Florida Winter Quarterly!  
He defeated Gates LaChance to win the tournament.  Pictures from the fall quarterly and the
winter quarterly will be posted later this week.

NEW FOR THE WINTER QUARTER
NEW SCORING
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:                               
  6-7 players             
pays top 3  
  8-9 players              pays top 4  
  10-11 players              
pays top 5  
  12-13 players              
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).

PRIZES
New bonus prizes for the following (in each area):
$50 Mini-Deepstacks Seat for the player with the most chips for the quarter
$50 Mini-Deepstacks Seat for the player with the most wins for the quarter
