  • PokerCon Update

    Just an update as to what has been going on with PokerCon lately.

    Its been posted on the website for awhile, but for those of you that didn't know, there will be no cash prizes. This just eliminates alot of hassle. Don't worry though, the prizes for winners will still be more than worth your while. There is a rumored rare thin black shiny object up for grabs for the first place winner...

    All the proceeds from this event will be going to the EFF (No official endorsement from them yet, but what non-profit denies donations? ).

    Dealer volunteers, thanks for putting your hat in the ring to help, but the odds are we won't need you. An outside company will more than likely be coming in to do the dealing, set up tables, etc. This will also make the event much more professional in atmosphere. Stay on your toes though because now anyone that would have been a dealer is general staff. It isn't confirmed exactly WHO will be doing the dealing, but it will probably not be anyone who isn't trained to do so.

    Which brings me to another point. With the dealing being handled by someone else, it frees up staff time. This means more mini-contests in breaks and for people that lose! Any good ideas would be appreciated.

    Registration will be opening as soon as the details on the event are finalized. Stay patient, its still four months until Con.

    Most importantly, A big thanks to Russ, DT and BlackBeetle. They are all being a HUGE help in getting this event off the ground. If you see any of them at Con make sure to give them a high five, oat sodas, and a warm thank you.
    The dude abides.
