Would it be worth my time to organize a no-limit holdem poker tournament? I'm thinking that we have a final table on Sunday, and then on Saturday have satellite tables to win your seat at the final. Depending on interest (i.e. how many satellites), we have the top one or two people from each satellite advance to the final table. It would be a freeze out structure for simplicity (meaning no rebuys) and the blinds would steadily increase to make sure that they keep moving along at a brisk pace. I've got a good amount of poker experience to help run this smoothly and I think that there would be many PAX-ers that would be interested in playing "that game on the travel channel where you wear sunglasses and say, 'all in!'"
Before it's asked, this can't be for actual money at PAX due to WA gaming regulations. This doesn't mean that there can't be a cash game in some hotel room later that night! However, I'm sure if there are enough people interested, we could twist a sponsor's arm into providing some lovely parting gifts.
