Can you explain a little what this is about? Exactly what is a poker league and how would it work? Also how would it get more users and more people to notice the site? Smile

I'm definitely interested, though, like stated above I'm curious how this would work exactly.
rheanna
Easy, They start a private league on one of the poker sites Like say carbon and a lot players play there and you have some poker hoes that just go around trying to get into these tournament so they look up the sites and join. *GUILTY* But I would gather they would contact the poker site to start to the league. I could ask wass poker and see what they say on how to start a private tourny.

And prizes could be for points or frih bucks ya know. doesn't have to be cash.

That does sound like quite good fun actually. I wouldn't want to play for cash though.

Actually what I mean is the forum could offer

A]

A freeroll to all the members that have at least 20 to 50 post in order to get into the freeroll

or

B]

They can offer a $1 or $2 buy in amount and disperse it in like first top 10

something like that.

In Belgium, without a proper licence (which only some casinos and similar have), organizing poker for money (everything more than a few cents) is forbidden, whether it is public, private or on the internet. So sorry, but I really can't have Frihost related to poker. (and no I don't have anything against poker, I sometimes play it with some friends)

I think it's a great idea.

I would participate in it, and I would even pay real money to enter it.

I don't think a poker league really fits well with Frihost. Plus, as sir Bondings pointed out, in many places it is illegal.
rheanna
Oh darn... We have to change that rule Bondings... It was worth a shot at least .. Oh, well if you want to play with me at the tables then come look me up in my poker site post. Sorry guys. I got you all excited. lol Laughing Laughing
vvforgs
I think it will be good!
HamsterMan
That's a really great idea, but then again, I am a sucker for poker tournaments.
AftershockVibe
I would assume that Bondings wouldn't mind if someone set up a table/room/whatever (I don't know what they're called, I don't play poker online) in their own name and then invited interested Frihost members (or anyone else!) provided FriHost's was no way associated with it? Even better if it's not for money (which is my preference anyway).

But it could be real cash?

That's ok I guess, definitely ok if it's not for money.
Wuppie
Just for Frih$ would be great! I like poker (are we talking about Texas hold-em?) but I never play for money or prizes...this is a great idea, I hope there's coming a real frihost poker tournament soon.
rheanna
I guess I can do that and try to set it up for us Wink in my name Cool But for no money because I worked hard to make that $50s on Spadeclub not to have you guys take it away from me. Laughing Laughing I'll talk to Wass and see what they say. Yes, No Limit Texas HoldEm
Genesiz
Getting Frihost members involved in a community type game would be great to generate some more activity. And i'd most definitely consider joining a poker league, for fun or frih$ not for cash. A kinds annoying porblem that springs to mind is that Frihost has members from all over the globe, so it could be hard to find a time when a high enough number of people could play. If you found some way of overcoming this then come on.

PS - rheanna, nice to see you posting again Smile
rheanna
^ Thank You. I contacted a couple of places so just waiting to hear back from them. Please be patient while I try to set it up for us.

And I'll take prize out my frih bucks like 50 to 100 win frih bucks but your going have to have a least a min of 50 posts to join to get the pass word for the tourny if I'm able to set it up. This way it weeds out the nonposters

I like poker very much and I play well (I think so at least), so I'm in.
Tell me, what is the way you planning to do it?
Pretty interesting.

Hmm what do you mean?

I plan on a No Limit table. with a start of 1000 chips maybe 2000
Arseniy
No Limit? That's good.
But I mean the system of software with which you planning to play.
rheanna
Oh , something like on wass poker because the owner there is setting it up for me. I'll try to see if I can't do one on Bodog. I like that place.

Let me know what software u would like, so, I know.
amanda009
Yes i think its a great idea,, and it will help to expand there money power in market too...
Ghost Rider103
I like Fulltilt Poker.

But any software is fine with me.

I have never heard any of the two softwares you just mentioned.
rheanna
I hate full tilt. Place is so disorganized it's pathetic.
