We haven't had a poker tournament since New Years, ask and you shall receive! Yee-Haw!
The tournament will be on July 21st. Check in starts at 6:30 PM CST and the event will start at 7:00 PM CST. Everyone that wishes to play in the tournament MUST show up in Teamspeak for check in. You are not required to stay in Teamspeak AFTER the tournament begins. If you are not present during roll call you will be removed from the tournament. Please do not wait until the start of the tournament to show up, if I do not hear from you 15 minutes into Check-In, you will be removed from the tournament. We don't need people sitting and losing to blind bets. You must be a member on the forums for at least 2 weeks to participate.
PokerStars has decided to force a minimum buy in of 20k chips. As time goes on they may increase it further. They want people to buy chips basically. If you make new account our current information tells us you start with 35k chips so new players will be ok in playing. If you already have an account make sure you have the needed chips. The client has a free chip button in the top right corner. It refreshes every couple of hours so you could log in once a day over a week and have more then the necessary chips to participate.
If anyone would like to donate a prize to the prize pool message @Sean on the forums/Discord.
Please try to donate only keys to games. Last tourney, because of steams gift policy, a steam inventory game couldn't be given like the norm because of region restrictions.
Current Prize Pool:
1st - $80
2nd - $50
3rd - $20
Pocket Aces Award: Mystery Prize!

As promised (though later than I'd like), here is a quick Staff update focusing mostly on changes related to Advisors and Recruitment Officers. Our goal with these changes and changes in the near future is to maximize Staff activity on our servers and the community. In addition to these changes, we are hoping for more applicants to fill additional positions, mainly server Advisor positions. Lastly, we are planning this to be the beginning of a few incremental Staff changes, so please stay tuned for them in the (hopefully near) future.
Next, I would like to go over the changes to Staff. First, I would like to thank Fugner, Dakka, and Lindsay who have stepped down for their time put into Staff and the community overall, and wish them the best of luck in the future. In addition, I am sad to announce the departure of the following members of Staff:
Lastly, I am pleased to announce the addition of the following members being added to the Recruitment Officer team:
Furthermore, I am pleased to announce the following members will be joining Staff working with ZachPL on our Garry’s Mod servers:
Henceforth, I am delighted to declare that we've reallocated resources in our staff team and put Karma to good use. She will be our new GMOD Engineer!
P.S. Staff Applications are also open and can be found here. We are always looking for Engineers as well as Recruitment Officers, so feel free to drop in an application if you are interested. In addition, if you are interested in assisting in a Advisor role for a server, please drop in an application as well.
