Omaha 8 Tournament: Friday, March 18 8:00 PM CST

All righty then. It's on like Donkey Kong.

Where: Noble Poker
Cost: $0 ($50 freeroll provided by Noble Poker)
Who's Invited: You (bloggers, readers, whoever)
Tournament Name: Omaha

The good folks at Noble Poker have set us up with the first of a series of Omaha 8 tournaments. The first 3 or 4 will be $50 freerolls, followed by a $10 entry no juice tournament to cap off the first leg of the Omahatastic series. It's a Omaha 8 limit tournament, so we should get plenty of play with no early exits, and the tournament structure at Noble is pretty reasonable as far as blinds and starting chips.

I haven't quite worked out all the fine details, but the plan is to run this as an ongoing league with weekly tournaments, if we can drum up enough interest. I'll maintain a leaderboard at (nothing there now, but coming soon) and kick in some additional cash/prizes for the top 3 at certain junctures. You'll get leaderboard points for participation and finish, but I'll try to weight it so that missing a week here or there doesn't kill you, as I know it's hard to schedule something weekly like that, with assorted life stuff going on and all.

Sorry about the hassle of hosting it on yet another site to sign up with, but Noble Poker is a newer site that's working hard to build a player base through cool promotions and private tournaments such as this. While you don't have to deposit for the first freeroll tournaments, they're currently offering a nice 100% signup bonus for March, up to $300. The site can be low-traffic at times but it's usually not too hard to find a table at lower limits, and they get some crazy gambooler casino players that drop in to play some cards. The bonus clear fairly quickly and is added in $10 increments to your account, with weekly emails letting you know how much of the bonus you've cleared, how much remains, etc.

We need to have a minimum of 15 people to get the tournament going, so if you can, I'd appreciate assorted spreading of word and pimping and what-not. Like I said, anyone is welcome, and hopefully we'll generate enough interest to make this an ongoing thing. Many thanks.

I'll try to get there. It might be tough in the middle of St. Patrick's weekend celebration/inebriation.

Nice job setting it up.
