24 hrs to act? I'm going to have to include the potential winnings in my will, assuming my surviving kin are able to pull off the victory. :)

Hopefully people will be a bit quicker than that, but with different time zones and real life there really isn't much else that can be done...

Two questions.

This is no limit, correct?

And why am I "Cecil 3d" in the game thread? Are you trying to confirm that I am actually 3-dimensional, or are you implying that I'm always going to get the 3 of diamonds? :p

It is no-limit.

The 3d was a hanger on from when I randomly assigned seats by dealing a card to each player. Oddly enough since the 2c and 3c were dealt the 3d was only 3rd lowest...

Anyway, I edited it out....

From the actual game thread:
RCC wrote:Seat 4 (shemp) would be first to act by posting a fold, call, or a raise and how much there is a raise. To keep things simple when raising state your raise as a "raise to".

In other words, if shemp wanted to raise, it is easier if he posts "Raise it to 6" rather than "raise it 4 more." Both mean the same thing, but the former allows later players to figure out how much it costs to call without backtracking and extra math.
Aw shucks, I wanted to be able to say, "Kick a buck.", like Cool Hand Luke. :(

Oh, and I want to create a sock puppet for this game if no one objects. I'll be Sam Farha. :)

I would take on the persona of The Unabomber for this game, but people might confuse this with that Kuczinski guy, so I'll just wear my hood whenever I make a play.

P.S.: I used to play chess against Howard Lederer.

Sure thing. I guess you have some time on your hands getting bounced on the first day of the WSOP main event and all.

So when it comes time to show, I guess we just wait for RCC? Otherwise I might just make something up ;). And are we on auto-show if called? If uncalled, can we just auto-muck?

Good questions :)

I was hoping you'd just show :D

Heh, well, if the suspense is just killing you, I could give an unofficial show before the dealer authenticates the hands . . .

I hope to be quicker in the future, but my internet went bye-bye this morning and just came up. I'll reveal the cards when the hand is over, showing all hands in at the end, as I finally did a few minutes ago.

My connectivity will be spotty for the next 5 days. Sorry if I delay the proceedings.

Especially with a mighty hand2 in hand. It's hard not to eye Rebecca's stack expectent of ownership transfer.

What's the buy-in for this? Who do I have to suck up to to be able to play?

I can put you on the alternate list in case someone decides they want to drop out.
