I am pleased to announce the first FEZ Texas Hold-Em poker tournament.
Time to put your FEZs aside and try something different!
The tournament is scheduled for Sunday April 3rd at 4PM EDST (2000UTC).
The tournament will be played on the training site for PokerStars, the largest online poker casino. POKERSTARS.NET is a play money site, no real money can be used. When you join, you are given a $1000 of play money, which will be replaced if you lose it.
While it will not cost you any money to play, there are real prizes to be won. GHI has agreed to provide several gift coupons for the top winners.
You don’t know how to play Texas Hold-Em? PokerStars has a free poker school. There is plenty of time, before the tournament, to learn how to play and practice. We will be playing No Limit poker, just like the games you see on television.
PokerStars has a feature called “Home Games”. This feature allows anyone to create a private poker club, and invite their friends. Games can be scheduled for the club, which only members may play. I have created the “FEZ Poker Club”.
How do you get into the tournament?
The first step is to install the PokerStars software, which runs on Microsoft and Mac machines. Go to www.pokerstars.net to download the software.
The second step is to create an account. This can be done through the software. When you select a username, I suggest you use the form “fez_XXX” where XXX is your tinyclr forum username. My PokerStars user name is “fez_mike”. Once you have installed the software, you can access the poker school and start practicing.
The next step is to join the FEZ Poker Club. To join the club, you will need the club ID number and invitation code. Once you have an account on PokerStars, you should email your user id to me at the address below. I will then send you the necessary information to join the club. Once I have accepted you into the club, you will be able to register for the tournament.
The email to send you user id is: fezmike at cranbury.com.
You must be a member of the tinyclr forum to win a prize.
Good luck at the table!
