in addition there will be a Calcutta to wager on for everyone there!


Someone will walk away w/ a few hundred $ by choosing the winner of the tourney before it starts!


We will start off w the top finishers from last year's tourney & start bidding at $10

Anyone can bid & highest bidder gets that person - if they win the tourney they get the pot!

Once all of the top finishers have been taken we will go through & offer a "field bet" for everyone left - if anyone from the field wins the tourney whoever has them wins the pot $!

Enjoying getting caught up on the games from the RSG stream. I noticed in bracket play, starting with Danny v JP,  that they had a tap meter. Were they playing a rom? Is it possible to get a cart with the tap meter from Brudog or elsewhere?
