Big Guns XIV
ARE YOUR HANDS STRONG ENOUGH TO HOLD
BIG GUNS?
 

(RULES - SO YOU CAN’T SAY YOU DIDN’T KNOW...)


1.  House takes no cut.  All proceeds will be distributed to winners after covering expenses.


2. Arrive early to size up the other Big Guns. Play begins at 2pm sharp!  If you check in before 1:45pm, you get an extra 100 bullet chip!


3.There will be no scheduled breaks until Dinner.  If you are peeing, smoking, crying, or otherwise engaged and not at the table when it is your turn, you will be folded (and if you were in a blind you’ll lose that too).  Don’t be a whiney-suck-tit if this happens to you.  Take it like a Big Gun.  (Exception to this rule is if Troyer or one of his cronies is on “tournament business.”  In that case, wait patiently for them, and tell them how nice their hair looks when they get back to the table.)


  1. 4.There will be TWO DECKS (different colors) on each table. 


5.We burn cards (to cover up potential flatulence).  Burn one card pre-flop, pre-turn, and pre-river. 


6. The minimum bet is the size of the big blind. 


7. The minimum raise is double the previous bet. Save your tiny raise for the bedroom.


8. There is no max bet.  This is no limit, baby.


9. No string bets.  If you don’t know what a string-bet is, ask somebody. G-strings are OK.


10. Protect your hand.  It is up to you to keep your hand from inadvertently becoming part of the muck pile.  Put something on it, or watch it closely.  Once it’s mucked, you’re mucked.


11. NO FLASHING CARDS.  You cannot show an opponent one or both of your cards to influence them while action is still live.  This is also known as the “Cut it out, E & Zip, Rule”


12. In order to raise, you must do one of the following: 

1.) say “raise”

2.) OR say the amount you’re betting, for example:  “I bet three hundred, suckah!” 

3.) OR don’t say anything, but throw in at least two chips. 

If you bet ONE large chip without any verbal action, it is considered a CALL - and it means you would like change back, no matter how big the chip is.


13. We will combine & balance tables throughout the day.  The computer may do this, and it won’t always be fair.  But it’s not fair for everyone, so again no whining.


14. Any disputes will be handled by Tournament Chair Troyer.  His word is final, but he may seek assistance from Professor Moose Moriarty, whose veteran word is even more...finaler.


15. Each player starts with 1500 (or 1600 if you’re there by 1:45!) in tournament chips. There are no re-buys or add-ons.  Since the first round blinds are only 5/10 (instead of 25/50) it’s essentially like starting with 7,500 in chips in a normal tourney.  The low blinds result in a DEEP STACK TOURNEY format.  (See blind structure below...)

16. The final table will be whenever the tournament is narrowed to ten players.  There may be a ten minute break at this point.


17. Payout will depend on number of entrants but plans are to pay out top 9 or 10 finishers, as well as some special prizes throughout the day (bounties on previous champs, etc.) Again, after room/food is paid for, House takes no cut...
