Here's how it works: there will be three qualifying matches with eight people each. The top two players from each qualifier will advance to the final table! Pretty simple, huh?
Not sure how to play? You have time to learn! A simple search of "texas hold'em" on teh intarwebz will yield plenty of sites that'll give you the basics of the game. As the poker adage goes: "Texas Hold'Em is a game that takes five minutes to learn and a lifetime to master." :P
Here is the tentative schedule:
Qualifier 1: Friday, 8:00pm-10:30pm
Qualifier 2: Saturday, 9:00am-11:30am
Qualifier 3: Saturday, 3:00pm-5:30pm
Final Table: Saturday, 8:00pm-10:30pm
The only event I do not wish to conflict with is the fursuit parade, so assuming that will start at 1pm on Saturday, this schedule will stand pat. :)
Oh yeah! Did I mention art prizes will be awarded for first and second place? :)
As your host and dealer for this event, I would be happy to answer any questions you may have!
"May your cards be live, and may your pots be monsters!"
