Whatever happened to the poker tournament we were once planning, anybody still up for the idea?

There is a problem with organizing this though. In the past, it has been difficult to get all players to register for the site we use and all get in the same room together. I've spent well over an hour waiting around for everybody to get their ducks in a row.

previous poker thread
not much happened I'm afraid, the problem was, i think time zones and also being able to get private games.

I would play if the time was right....
Here are some suggestions on setting it up.
Set it up to a "neutral" time to accomidate as many different timezones as possible. (but you are never gonna please everyone so they might just have to wait for the next one)
Have everyone preregister and pay their fees a few days, or a week before the tourney is set to begin.
Let them know what website we will be playing on, so they can register with that website ahead of time.
Set a deadline for the start of the tourney.... "If you aren't at a table at 10:00 A.M. sorry you aren't playing :P" (you could have extra "players" on hand to sit in seats of missing players and automatiaclly fold every hand until someone shows up.... but that seems like way to much work. In my opinion if you want to play, be there when you are supposed to)

Is Poker PG?
Gambling is bad for adults, certainly more so for teens and children. I doubt if reference to Poker, or to Poker gambling sites online is permissible.
chuck its play money that we'd use, so lighten up man
Anyways, Jon says that it won't be an "official" part of game. But it's up to the player after that. So it doesn't matter.

Poker in and of itself is just a card game, man. People decide what kind of currency to use to play, it doesn't have to be anything adult, we always used to play with Oreos when I was a kid.
