POY Schedule 2011
Pokertips Player of the Year 2011

All are welcome in the tournaments

There will be 2 tournaments per month. Rounding off with the Main Event
  • Tournaments are held on PokerStars, at 15:00ET on Saturdays or Sundays
  • These are friendly tournaments (although very honorable) - keep the chat nice
  • Points are distributed according to pokerstars
  • Most points over all tournaments wins the POY title. This will be modified if the Pokerstars points system is crappy.
  • Must be 5+ players in the game to get points (Stars rule).
  • Tournaments are a mix of different poker variants - here is your chance to min bet shame free
  • Buy-in is always $5+$0.5 except Main Event and TOC.
  • You must sign up via pokerstars homegames.
  • We have space for more players so sign up now.
  • I'm the ruler and judge on any issues.
  • Winning an event gets you a ticket to the prestigious "Tournament of Champions" where you'll play all the other winners. (Buy-in not included).
  • TOC is played as the last tournament of the year (Could be in the new year).
  • Please sign up for the league asap - its 1st come 1st served.
  • If an event does not meet the 5 player requirement a "Standard" NLHE game will be added the following week as "make up".
  • English only at the tables please unless its an all German/Canadian table
  • Announcements will be made in the Pokertips Lounge and Poker Allgemein.
  • I may add a couple more admin players to help manage any issues or rescheduling needed.
  • Non POY tournaments and ring games will also run throughout the year.
  • All are welcome - lurkers, regulars, trolls, losers, fools, winners, men, women(moli/queenie), Ozone, young, old (25+), immigrant, northern .. you get the picture :smile:

Did I forget something or make any mistakes? Comments? Speak now or be forever a lurker.

Finally a big thanks to Moli for running this the past couple of years and having an old POY post I could plagiarize.

Good luck

Hi ishbu.

Is there anyway to the member list to be viewable by all club members?

Currently all players tell me they can't see the member list.

That seems akin to a home game with ski masks required.



Thank you for your interest in PokerStars Home Games.

At this moment, the members list is only available to Club Manangers and
club members are not able to view this list. Nonetheless, we have forwarded
your feedback to our Home Games Team for their review.

Please keep in mind that we receive thousands of emails containing ideas,
suggestions and feedback each month, so unfortunately we cannot respond on
the merits of every one. However, we read every single email and give each
report careful consideration.

We really appreciate the time you have taken to suggest improvements to
PokerStars Home Games.

Thank you for choosing PokerStars.

PokerStars Support Team
