Have added some dates and other info to the calendar.

Later in the year I'll add WPT 8 and EPT 6 dates.

added ANZPT Queensland which unfortunately coincides with the Crown Casino Vic Champs:

http://www.anzpt.com/tournaments/queensland/

- no tournament fee !!! Entire $2500 entry returned to the prizepool !!!
- fields will play at either Brisbane Treasury or Gold Coast Jupiters, with all Day 3 players assembling at Jupiters
- cap of 280 players plus 20 alternates.
- Day 3 Brisbane players will be coach driven (oh the luxury) to Jupiters on the Saturday morning
- Day 3 Brisbane players that do not make the Day 4 final table can catch the late evening coach back to Treasury Casino
- Brisbane players who make the Day 4 final table will receive a complimentary night’s accommodation at Jupiters Casino Hotel.

The scheduling of this really stuffs things up for tourney whores, those wanting to be the 2009 ANZPT Points Leader and play the Vic Champs at Crown, well, you'd miss the $550 event (guaranteed $250,000 prizepool).

Peoples, look what we got now: :spades: :hearts: :diamonds: :clubs:

Now, I found those icons but they're a bit small, so could someone find some larger ones, ones more the size of our other smilies?

If you do, can you make a post in the smilies thread in the Suggestions Forum?

You can write :club's': :diamond's': etc. just add the s, not sure if that was what you were after.

Do others agree that we would prefer :spade:, :heart:, :diamond: and :club: ?

With regards to size, I checked out some icons from flopturnriver.com and think what we have is ok.

BigFooty: :spade: :heart: :diamond: :club:

FlopTurnRiver:


Opinions?

Praise your esteemed leader (not me, Chief).

You now have

:spade: - : spade :
:heart: - : heart :
:diamond: - : diamond :
:club: - : club :

:thumbsu:

:heart: :heart: :heart: :heart: :heart: :heart: :heart:

Just don't go overboard using them for anything other than hand histories.

I have retired the first Burswood thread and started a second one. Congrats to all especially ash for their contributions.

In other news, I am considering unsticky-ing the Poker Terms and Poker Sites threads. They don't get much action and people should be able to find them by first referring to this FAQ thread.

When I get a chance, I'll fix up the Tournament Calendar. I really should just include the most relevant tournaments here in Australia and Asia, then perhaps the WSOP/WSOPE, and maybe, maybe WPT and EPT. Any suggestions?

Have done the calendar for January to April, 2010. Might add info re buy-in amounts for each Main Event. Will get around to May-December later.

I hope having an up-to-date calendar encourages some of us to try to satellite into tournaments around the country and throughout Asia, and perhaps a few of us can catch up for a drink. I'm going to see what I can do about winning a seat to Perth, Christchurch and Sydney. But given that I'm an uber tourney-donk, my chances are not great :(

Cleaned up the tourney schedules, made it easier to maintain. Still have to add Crown tournament series.

Added PokerStars SCOOP, WCOOP and MiniSOP; Full Tilt MSOP; iPoker ECOOP and Mini ECOOP; Bodog Poker Open, Sydney Poker Champs.

Think I've covered most online series. Probably need to add more local live tournament series, like from Perth and Adelaide.
