Xtratime Poker Club

We've had some discussions in the past about holding an XT poker tournament and in fact there were some threads and freeroll tournaments several years ago:
*** Calling all POKER players ***
Xtratime Poker Tournament - Sign up & discuss here

It was a bit hard to hold these kind of tournaments as not many rooms offered to set up private tournaments. However, Pokerstars has now made it very easy to set up private online home games so I created a room and a tournament league for XT members in pokerstars.com:

Club ID: 131967
Invitation code: calcio100

If you already have an account in Pokerstars and want to join then simply click the TRY HOME GAMES button below the main lobby in the Stars client. Then click "join a poker club" and enter Club ID, code and your XT username.

If you don't have Stars account you have to download the client from pokerstars.com (NOT pokerstars.net) and install it and register an account. Also you might want to deposit some money. But you can start with free play money too.

At the moment I've set up 4 cash tables in our group lobby (3 real money and 1 play money where everybody can play). 4 tables is the maximum amount allowed.

I've also set up 2 tournaments. One has $3+.30 real money buyin and the other is a play money tournament so everybody can join it. Both start at Monday 24th 21.00 CET. Basically if enough people are interested we could have an XT poker league with weekly tournaments.

questions and suggestions are welcome

I'm good at poker but I'm also a poor student so I'll be playing at the play money table for now.

I'll be in too, if this takes off.

P.S. Watch out for Zaj, he's sick.

If she takes care of her husband's diet she will have less time to speak about me.

Is this Texas hold 'em?

He didn't specify. But if it is, I may be interested. I just have to ask Mrs. Pila for permission, and a raise.
