BadBlood's G-Vegas Poker Superstars Invitational

(I'm opening this invite up to readers and fellow bloggers who may want to show up)

Edited - New Date: July 2nd and 3rd!

You've seen it on FoxNet in both Vegas and California, and now it's coming to Greenville. At least I hope so.

This will be quite an endeavor to pull off, but I'm used to pulling....scratch that. Regardless, this is an attempt to run a poker tournament to make all other poker tournaments seem like umm, well, something not like what you're used to.

I'm looking for 18 players to commit to a weekend of poker. The jist of it is as follows:

Each participant will play in three(3) 6-player tournaments over the course of the first day. The object is to accumulate points such that they can participate in the Final Table. Players win points as follows:

1st - 10
2nd - 7
3rd - 5
4th - 3
5th - 1
6th - 0

After everyone has played in 3 tournaments, the top 6 point finishers advance to the finals.

The buy-in for the whole shebang is $100. The prize money break-down will be as follows:

Winning any one of the 9 preliminary tourneys: $50
Final Table Payout:
1st - $900
2nd - $450

And that's that.

The structure of each preliminary tourney and the final tourney will be designed such that they last between 2.5 and 3 hours each.

If all goes according to plans, we would play all 3 initial tourneys on Saturday, April 30th beginning at about 10am. Then play the Final Table on Sunday, May 1st around 1pm.

I'm not sure I'll get enough players with enough interest, but I'll give it a shot anyway.
