I just saw this thread right after offering to set up a forum free-roll in a different thread!
I'd better talk to Andy.
A couple of years ago I set up quite a few monthly free-rolls, but as Andy said it is very disheartening when after a lot of effort (and in my case, funding them from my own pocket) not many players turn up.
So before we get too carried away we need to find out what is the best day of the week & time for everyone, where they are prepared to play (which poker site) and which game they want to play.
I propose to get this info by running several polls - once I have Andy's agreement.
great result in your tourney KK, turning bugger all in to 750 dollers cant be bad. I managed 15th out of 80 odd players in my first live tourney at the weekend, The final nail in my coffin came when the last remaining woman busted my QQ with A10.
I am in contacts now with a couple places that I held our poker league before here about a year ago. It went pretty well even with only about 9-15 players a week. I am basically checking how much extra money they will give me for the prize pool.
At worst, maybe we can get some added money to the prize pool, then run a weekly league for 4-5 weeks one tourney a week. At a time that fits the majority of people. Then I can keep the stats are results of the players and we can give out a prize for the 1st and 2nd top players of all the tourneys combined. you could drop your worst finish or if you cant show up one week, drop that week. Or basically take your top 4 finishes if there are 5 weeks.
Again, if i cant get a deal with some of the poker rooms I work with, then I will let someone else take care of it, but if they offer me something good, then we will go with that. I know for the last league, we got an extra 500.00 added for the final table of the league. Probably wouldnt be able to get that again but if we have a month long league and get an ok turnout, they might kick it up to that or higher for the next one.
Only bad thing is the buy in everyweek would be 5.00usd. But that is pretty reasonable and we will get a decent amount of extra money added for sure.

Anymore news on this, if we can get a decent prize pool for it then thats great but i would be happy to play for no winnings(which is what i would end up with anyway) is all about the bragging rights anyway eh!
