VENUE CANCELLATION

After many years, Frank's Place has decided to cancel poker.  While Saturdays were still good, unfortunately attendance had dropped on Thursdays and Sundays, and was enough for them to decide to go in a different direction.  

I'm already working on replacement venues and nights.  Please be patient.  It might be difficult to quickly replace these nights right before the holidays, but stay tuned to the website for updates.

Changes to the BSPL Mini-Deepstacks Tournament at The Daytona Poker Room
We have two changes to our tournament beginning with our next tournament December 3rd

First, the start time will be moving back to 11:10am.  This will give those of you in Central Florida an extra hour of sleep before heading over.

Secondly, we are making a slight change to the format.  We will be implenting a "Bounty Hunter" aspect to the tournament.  This will be similar to our game 3, with a slight twist.  Each player will be issued a "bounty ticket" at the beginning of the tournament.  When you go all-in, you will put your ticket in the pot with your chips.  If you get knocked out, the player will receive your bounty ticket AND any tickets that you have earned previously.  This will continue until we get down to the money.  At this point, the clock will stop and bounties will be counted.  The player with the most bounty tickets will win the $100 bounty prize.  If two or more players are tied, the player with the highest chip count among those players will win the bounty.

The benefit of this change is so that every player will get an equal chance at the bounty, as Jim doesn't always get moved around to every table.

Congratulations to Barbie Sheppard, winner of the Volusia Fall Quarterly!  After a 55 minute heads up battle,
she defeated Danica Lakic to win her second Volusia tournament.  Pictures will be posted later this week.

Congratulations to Judy Kolbinskie, winner of the Central Florida Fall Quarterly!  Judy defeated Howard Gale in
just a few hands heads up, after nearly 30 minutes of 3-way action.  Pictures 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:

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

NEW FOR THE FALL QUARTER
HIGH HAND
If a bounty ends up with the high hand for the night,
everyone who earns chips that night will receive 500 extra chips

TRIPLE CHALLENGE
*All games must have at least 10 players to qualify*

The triple challenges will now be:
3 wins in 1 night - 5,000 chips

3 wins on ANY back to back days - 10,000 chips
(second day of the back-to-back does not ALSO count as the first day of a new back-to-back)

CENTRAL FLORIDA - 3 wins on Saturday between Frank's and Clermont Bowling Alley - 20,000 chips

CENTRAL FLORIDA - 3 wins on Tuesday between Sanctuary Ridge and Hagan O'Reilly's - 20,000 chips
VOLUSIA -

BIG STACKS POKER LEAGUE HAS JOINED A NATIONWIDE LEAGUE!

Now, you can compete to play in the Bar Poker Open Main Event,

all consisting of other bar league poker players just like you.
Finish 1st and you'll earn entry into the Bar Poker Open Main Event ($150 value), along with a travel package of airfare ($400 value) and 3-night hotel stay!
Finish between 2nd through 6th and you'll earn entry into the tournament ($150 value). 
Earn additional entries to the online tournament, place

Again, the only way into the tournament is by playing at a designated BSPL venue to get into the Sunday online tournament.
