    I've been playing single player scenarios since Wednesday and having great fun, but it's getting to the point where I can work out the some of the AI and the game becomes a little easy/dull at that point.

    Playing online against a completely random bunch of strangers doesn't really appeal to me in this game, and although you're all pretty much strangers, there's at least a minimal tie through these forums.

    So without further ado -- Would anyone be up for a regular poker night on Sundays (what better way to round off the weekend than to gamble away pretend money). Say starting at 8pm -- enough time for people like me to get back from the football on a Sunday afternoon, but not too late that it'll kill off the opportuinty to do something else after the game is over.

    I think it'd be much more interesting to play online with a regular group, where you can get to know the individuals and try to work out who regularly bluffs, who only goes in when they've got a great hand, etc. etc.

    Might be a bit short notice to get one going this Sunday, but if enough people say they're interested before then I'm up for starting it up this week.

    I didnt' notice anything else like this being organised, if there is something, point me in it's direction please :)

    When:
    Every Sunday, 8pm. At 8:10pm we will start with however many people have already joined the tournament.

    Rules:
    Tournament play
    Blinds: $25/$50
    Buy in: $5000

    All private seats, if we can't get 8 then we'll play with however many people we can get.


    Poker Night Players (Tournaments played/Total poker night winnings)
    Each Sunday I'll simply go down my friends list and invite everyone who is online from the list below at 8pm. First come first served if there's more than 7 folks interested on any given night.

    Would love to have a dabble, not sure about his Sunday due to the short notice.

    Not had the 360 too long, and only just gone on line via live. Really enjoyed a game last night even though I am a bit crap at the moment. Should be easy pickings for someone.

    Spot on! Sunday 8pm is ingrained in my mind as Top Gear time but count me in until the new series starts!

    What sort of stakes we going to play?

    I was thinking of the following setup, to start with at least -- maybe raising the stakes further down the line:
    Tournament play
    Blinds: $25/$50
    Buy in: $5000

    All private seats, if we can't get 8 then we'll play with however many people we can get.

    The first week's results:

    We started with 5, a few folks turned up a little too late to join the game otherwise we'd have made 7 this week.

    In an eventful first ever hand henke took a big loss to durera and never really recovered. In round 6 durera won a big gamble to turn the tide of the tournament it seemed, all-but-eliminating c225 and reducing mike mustafa to a little over $4k.

    The tournament lasted just over an hour and a half, with mike mustafa entering the showdown with only $5k versus durera's $20k, before pulling level and eventually ahead. A couple of big losses in round 8 reduced mike to a little over $4k, and with blinds running at 1k/2k in round nine, he eventually succumbed to defeat.

    It was good fun, shame I didn't get my mic working til the latter rounds (forgot I had muted it earlier) as it was even more exciting with some banter flying in the showdown -- I'll remember for next week.

    I think I've added everyone to my friends list that said they were interested. If you are up for this, post here and send me a friends request, that way there's less chance of me missing someone out.

    Week 1 results:
    1st -- durera, winner ($12500)
    2nd -- mike mustafa, out in round 9 ($7500)
    3rd -- c225, out in round 6 ($5000)
    4th -- fantasticlees, out in round 5
    5th -- henke7, out in round 3

    Sounds like you had a good time, I never managed to get on until just after 9pm so missed it this week, should be around next weekend.

    I had a little go else where and really got a good hiding, shame really would have been some easy chips for you guys.

    Until next week!!!
