Thanks for the help! You're the right person to set this up.

Please create a poker tournament for two Grand Contestants for tomorrow, Thursday, October 12th at 1:00 pm CDT / 7:00 pm BST (that's 6:00 pm UTC).

This are the settings.
500 chips.
5/10 initial blinds.
Every 3 minutes, the blinds increase.
First player to get 1000 chips wins.


To avoid griefers or trolls, I'll send the link to the game via PM 30 minutes before the game begins.

The game will begin at
1:00pm Central Daylight Time, 7:00pm British Summer Time

Once you're there, you may choose a Nickname and play as a guest (you don't have to log in)


And finally, don't forget to click to Request a Seat. I will allow you to seat.
You may chat as well. It asks for permission to use your microphone but that's not needed.



And the absolutely most important thing, the real reason of why we're doing this, have fun!

I am seriously considering renouncing entirely! It is completely unnecessary and unfair to blindly demand someone stop in the middle of their workday (where phones are NOT allowed) to play poker! This is the most ridiculous and disrespectful thing I have seen in a very long time here... making me wonder, why even bother trying anymore

Excuse me, but am I to understand from the above that Txoteu was not given sufficient warning of when the poker round was about to begin, and therefore he "defaulted"?

ETA: I see from Txoteu's application for an injunction that that was the case. I can't condone the Maricopa Government's decision to schedule the poker match without confirmation from Txoteu that he was actually available for the time chosen by the Maricopa Government. I think the Maricopa Government should simply resort to another tiebreaker, one that doesn't need both candidates actively involved, as time is a factor.

I'd ask you to reconsider. This decision has absolutely nothing to do with the work and contributions that we will see from you in the future, which will be very much valued.

While there were choices to be made, time, and opportunities to voice concerns, this decision is final. It was my call as Premieir of Maricopa and I stand by this decision, not only because of what could have been a great poker match (which I *really* wanted to see happen), but because I was expecting full participation from candidates, at least during these past days.

Please do not construe this as bad faith or anything against you -- time was of the essence and only one of two candidates had to be picked up, even if by mere personal preference.
