Well as someone who was at Griff's this night, a simple decision was made by the TD for a player to switch tables, and she didn't want to listen to the TD. Come back out sometime! We always have a good time at Griff's!


Posted on 2015-12-17 10:42:31

I was a customer at Griffs on December 15 Tuesday night and was going to play poker. Another customer told me this was the poker league. I was going to ask the leader about entering the game and observed her yelling and screaming at one of the poker players. Are there other venues where the leader is friendly?

If you only play once a week at one location for this league, chances are you are playing somewhere else. That doesn't qualify as being loyal! The TOC is about people that WIN tournaments, not for people who collect points. Win and move up, its the poker ladder!


Posted on 2015-09-16 10:53:38

What about adding venue winners to this list? That'll give people that only play at a certain venue once a week a chance to qualify it's a potential reward to them for being loyal to the league

When your pocket qq that turn into a boat loose to a three person all in you then say let's chop. My fiance Lisa moses goes all in with her ace queen and three people called and the cards come out flop kk. blank then a k . Which gives the pocket queens a boat then the last card a k comes out and Lisa wins with ace high


Posted on 2015-07-02 13:41:12

New Enhanced Player Profile

Posted on January 11, 2015

Hello again, players! Remember that poll we ran last year? We asked you what we could add to the site to enhance your user experience. Well, I took some elements from the three choices given in the poll and have created a new, enhanced version of the Player Profile.

Before, you could only check your results for a given month. Now, when you go to your new profile, a new left side menu will show up with links to all months starting in 2012. Each month has a value next to it that tells the number of games you scored in that month. We also added a graph showing a player's point accumulation per month. Lastly, on the 'Detailed View' table, each date now links to the full game results for that event.

We hope you guys enjoy these new features and please provide feedback about what else we could add to make it even better! To check it out, fill out your name below and click go to profile!

Only one possible answer to the question 'Why are there no points entered for the Philly Shack???'... Points are entered by the Tournament Director. Therefore, that has not happened yet. Please bring this up to them when you next see them.

Why are there no points entered for the Philly Shack???


Posted on 2015-09-07 20:32:58

Hey - I'm the guy that runs the site. Please provide your name so that we can check if you do not have points due to an error, or simply because they have not been entered into the system by your tournament director.
Thanks!

Posted on 2014-09-02 03:21:30

I need to know where you were at that is not how it's suppose to work sounds like your td did not give them to you moment you reached $5 or $10. Please let me know location you were at so I can fix the problem.


Posted on 2014-09-02 00:49:43

It seems that you are trying to promote increased spending with the host venues which is very good. However, waiting until after the break to hand out the bonus chips, for food/beverage purchases, may cause many to wait and place their orders until then because if they bust out before the break they do not receive the bonus chips for spending. Still others will not spend anything unless it appears they will make it to the break. You might want to consider giving out the chips when the player submits their tab to the TD during play. Again this will get folks spending and not waiting to spend.


Posted on 2014-09-02 00:13:40

It includes food as well as beverages!


Posted on 2014-09-01 15:04:02

when you use the term "from the bar", does this mean beverages......or alcoholic beverages.......and/or does it include food?
