Sunday 23rd September sees the June/July/August 18 Midlands Leaderboard (Area Final).
I will again be your TD for the day.
As per normal I plan to be at the Venue around Midday to get the tables set up then registration will open.
Registration will close at 12.45 prompt.
Any spare seats at this stage will be offered to qualifying reserves in Leaderboard order.
Only 4 of our 7 Venue Champion Seats have been claimed this time meaning the first 3 reserves in Leaderboard order are guaranteed a game so long as they are at the Venue by close of Registration at 12.45.
Can all qualified players wishing to play in this Event please be at the Venue before Registration Closes otherwise you may risk losing your Seat to a reserve.
Once Registration is closed, The seat draw will then be done using, The Tournament Director Software. This should then allow plenty of time to get everyone seated and start the tournament on time at 1pm.
Hopefully we won’t have any of these, but just so that you all understand the ruling on this.
Once the game begins, providing all seats aren’t already taken then (Pre Qualified) Latecomers will be accommodated (with the relevant chip deductions) until the end of Level 2 depending on certain criteria’s being met by that player.
For full ruling see below.
Reserves cannot be Latecomers !
LATECOMERS – PLAYERS WISHING TO JOIN ONCE THE GAME HAS STARTED
NOTE! STARTING CHIPSTACKS AT AREA FINALS WILL BE VARIED AND MORE THAN AT THE REGULAR LPPL GAMES.
LATECOMER JOINING IN LEVEL 1 WILL LOSE 1000 CHIPS IN TOTAL
LATECOMER JOINING IN LEVEL 2 WILL LOSE 2500 CHIPS IN TOTAL
Latecomers may join in the game anytime before the start of the 3rd Blind Level but providing that there is at least 24 players remaining in the game BEFORE THE LATECOMER JOINS OR if there were less than 24 players who actually signed-up and started the game on time, the Latecomer may join if, at the point of joining, no-one has actually been knocked out of the tournament - eg if 24 players started and they are all still in the game when the Latecomer joins then they can join, but those who join during the 1st Blind level will start with 4000 chips (deduction of 1000 chips) and those who join during the 2nd Blind level will start with 2500 chips (deduction of 2500 chips). start stack).
If a player arrives within 5 minutes of the game start and the above ruling regarding the number of players who started the game is still intact, the player may join the game without penalty of loss of starting stack. The player however must immediately post a dead big blind to "enter" the game, even if he is seated in a blind position.
Under no circumstances are players allowed to register in advance without being on the venue premises – all registered players must take their seat for the start of the tournament or they will be treated as a Latecomer – anyone not seated at the ‘shuffle up and deal’ call will have the appropriate number of chips removed from their stack by the TD (1000 during 1st blind level) after 5 minutes AND the table will post their blinds when due until they take their seat, where their whereabouts are unknown and potentially they have gone AWOL (ie not in toilets, at bar, finishing off a smoke etc) – if they have not taken their seat by the start of the 2nd blind level a further 1500 chips will be removed by the TD.
As always, If anyone knows of any qualified players who aren’t intending to play, can you post on here or our Facebook Group, so that we can let any reserves know that they have a potential place pre game. Cheers
