What about the idea of having an old fashion poker table going during PAX?

    Well, we wouldn't be able to play for cash, because there would have to be a gambling licesense to do that i believe, and without cash, there is no reason to play poker.

    I swear, I'm retiring from any game with the word 'Revolution" in the title. I must be the only person who breathed a sigh of relief at not being called for the Omegathon this year.

    Bah, you can play poker with anyone at any time. I plan to enjoy that which will only happen once in a lifetime.

    There was talk of a Hold'em tournament a month or so back, let's see if we can get the specifics nailed down. A free tournament with no buy in is not considered gambling so it'd be on the up and up.

    I know playing in a casual poker tournament is a lot more fun than any kind of console or PC tournament due to the level of interaction with the other players. Someone get on this!

    If someone wants to hold a Texas Hold 'Em tournament, I'll be happy to clean you all out. They don't let me play in my usual groups anymore.

    By "your usual groups" I assume you mean playing with Play Money on PartyPoker.com against Soccer Moms who enjoy poker since they think the player avatars are cute.

    Here's the previous thread on Tourney Hold'em: http://www.penny-arcade.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=57847&highlight=poker

    Antillese, you still up for running the tournament? I know I'd like to see one. Tourney Hold'em is far different than in a ring game, and even more different when you're playing with complete strangers. Hold'em is the most fun I've had at large gaming events, so hopefully Antillese is still up for handling this.

    I'm up for helping with organization, but I think there should be a prize for some fellow who ends up with all the chips (and 2nd and 3rd).

    It was already stated that Penny Arcade would give this tournament "official" status (with prizes for first, second, and third) just as long as someone would help with the organization of it.

    I'd be interested, but it's a matter of timing. I would like to attend the Soul Calibur and Smash tournaments (although I imagine I won't have to stay long for either. ^_^) Anyway, what time are we thinking about?

    By my "usual groups", I mean the cash games I play in, and eventually get kicked out of. I was playing Hold 'Em and Omaha before it was "en voguge". I'm probably not tournament caliber, but I'm good enough that people usually don't let me play for long.

    Count me in for any tournament.

    Poker would be lots of fun, moreso then video games. I think we should gamble with money, cuz its no fun without. But seeing as most people have no money we could play with quarters or something.

    Skill in poker only goes so far. Lots of luck, and lots of statistics. The skill is in how good you are at lying. At least in Hold 'Em

    I work for an online poker gaming company (can't say which one) and would be willing to help this process, either by dealing or by helping organize, if needed.

    2 main questions:

    Where to do it? We need several big tables, and volunteer dealers.
    Where to get chips? We can use several things...

    This might be better if someone volunteered their hotel room and held an 'underground' game for real cash...

    I've been known to lose copious amounts of cash playing NL Texas Hold 'Em a time or two. Might be up for some casual play if it was organized at night.

    Seriously guys... while most folks here *have* probably had the fantasy of mixing gaming, booze, and sex... you don't have to try and work all three into every possible situation. ;) Try Vegas if you really need that combo. It's definitely a cheaper trip than PAX if that's your main goal.

    I've got a chipset i can bring that's good enough for one table. I'll bring it with my PC just in case it's needed.
