The Gilpin has some weird tournament tonight.

http://thegilpincasino.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=123&Itemid=291

Has anyone played this tournament? It has the "kill" button in effect and has "Progressive bounties". I'd like to know what the progressive bounties are about. Thinking of playing tonight if I can get off work in time (server blow up this morning).

They always leave out one highly imporant piece of information and that is a blind structure. I would never pay that much for a tournmey with 20 minute blinds. if it is 30 minute blinds then good if not, good luck. Also $1 on stars says the blinds start above 25/50.

Oops, I posted this in the wrong section. It should be under "up the hill" not online poker.

I believe it's a 20 minute blind structure, but thats not too bad considering the amount of chips to start and it does start with 25/50 (all Gilpin tourneys start at 25/50 with no antes). I'm just kind of curious about the progressive bounties and kill button. Kill button in a tournament structure seems very odd. Good for limit, but I don't see the benefit during a tournament.

I don't even know how a kill button is played. I definately don't want to put 225 into a game that I'm not sure how to play.

25/50 blinds with 20 minute levels and 13k chips? That certainly seems like quite the big stack tourney. I'd be interested if: 1)I knew how to play a kill and 2) today wasn't my daughter's first birthday. Apparently it's an important event that I need to attend...

Kill is a lot of fun. I played a full kill at the Bellagio once at 15/30, but watch out when someone has the kill as blinds jump to 30/60. Good action at the right stakes.

I've always been pretty happy with the Gilpin tournaments with stacks above 7k even with the 20 minute blinds. There are a few blind jumps that I don't like 2000/4000 to 4000/8000 and another one in the middle (can't remember) something like 300/600 to 600/1200, but the rest of the blind increases are pretty much slowly progressive (i.e. 100/200 to 150/300).

I don't know why you might think this is important... Shocked Happy birthday to your daughter!

So, how do you do a kill in a tourney? Since the rules for a kill pot vary from house to house, how is it applied here?

Generally a kill is enacted when one player wins 2 pots in a row. If a player wins two pots in a row the blinds are doubled for that hand and the player with the "kill button" (the one who won 2 hands in a row) has to post that double big blind and the small blind and big blind also both post a double blind. So for example if you are playing 25/50 and there is a kill pot the small blind doubles to 50 and the big blind is 100 and the player with the kill button has to also post the big blind of 100 for that hand.

One variation is a half kill (the blinds only increase by half of what they were so in a 2/4 kill game it would be 3/6 with the half kill on where in a full kill the next hand would be played 4/Cool.

With a full kill the limits double. Generally the blinds return to normal once that hand is over. Some places require a player to win 2 more pots in a row for the blinds to increase again, some will allow the player with the kill to keep winning and keep the kill going and I have even heard of instances where the kill will keep going up as long as the same player is winning the pot Shocked

Doesn't look like I can make it anyway as my daughter is having lacrosse practice until 6. Unless anyone want to pick me up from downtown. Rolling Eyes

If I were going, I could...but my recollection of limited Friday night experience is that their 7pm tourneys usually fill up early enough that you probably can't get there from downtown in time anyway, unless you left at 5:30 or so, 6pm won't do it.

That is usually the case. My wife was going to pick me up at 5:30 and head up for the tournament, but our daughter has a late lacrosse practice due to a game tomorrow morning. Originally I was going to play a tournament Saturday, but my daughters game was rescheduled for Saturday. Finally get a chance to play some live action for me B-day and the weekend gets swamped. *sigh*

The joys of having kids and getting older. Last year my parents didn't know what to get me for my birthday so they just got me a $50 gift card at target. Needless to say it was spent on toys for my kiddos...

Along those lines, anyone know someone looking to purchase 2 children? I've got a pair that are really starting to run my wallet empty rather quickly... Razz

I hear there is a demand for these things called "kids" for some people in the US. Many will go to far reaches of the world and pay many thousands of dollars for them. That could help your empty wallet syndrome and take them off your hands. Not sure how to get around the legality of it, is there a lawyer on the forum that might offer a suggestion? Another bad beat about the target gift card...maybe next year will be better. Keep up the good work at the tables dex and I hope the good run continues.

My teacher was talking about his teenage daughter leaving the window down on his $40,000 truck right before a snowstorm and brought up an awesome point.

Ever notice how it is legal to leave a newborn at the firestation if you cannot parent it?

He was wondering where you could drop off teenagers Very Happy

Dude, you have no idea. I have two teenage girls, one that will be starting college in the fall as CSU. Everybody together now, "OUCH!". Another one in middle school and still one grade schooler left. After I got laid off a couple years ago, the old poker bankroll has not been the same. Good times!
