      hiya all,

      early july i would like to organize in Arnhem a gathering/meeting/tournament/give it a name for the dutch players from pokerstrategy.
      have some plays and beers and laughs.


      what are your thoughts about this? give me some comments how to make this a nice day/weekend.

      what i have to offer?
      i can rent a beer draft. proffesional kitchen. enough space for at least 12 tables. chippies. losts of internetconnectionpoints. sleeping facilities for 10 players from far far away. free parking space. even more sleeping places if u bring a sleeping bag. private cardroom for high rollers. pancakes and falaffel.

      so i need some reactions on this. 7/8 july? who will come? wich brand of beer? wich games? should i rent some proffesional pokertables or will the good old kitchen table do fine? splitting the costs? cheerleaders?

      the main issue will be fun.

      i will keep this thread open for 3 weeks and if there is enough response i will decide if i'll go through with it

      Man that sounds great actually.
      I live in Amsterdam, so it would be far, but not impossible.
      Lets see what other players think about it

      Actually wondering how many people from the Netherlands are on these forums :) , if there are enough for a nice day like this (though as bosch said, pretty traversable for some germans probably as wel).

      What do you want to play there Bosch? Tourney or cashgames? Just Hold'em or some stud as well?

      If people who are interested have preferances please throw in your idea's.

      i was thinking about some sngs or a 3/4 table tour and some cashgames.
      we can talk about the limits on these cashgames but i really want to have some mircro or low limit also, so everybody can have some fun. real high limits can be played in a private room so nobody will be bothering the players.

      if there are enough players we can make a bigger tour, perhaps 50 euro.

      and heineken isnt beer, its a pils and undrinkable.

      i wasnt thinking about stud, because that is not a ps.de game.

      Learn something new everyday, really had no idea you were :) .



      Actually Bosch, ps.DE does have section for the other games :P


      And jup, I guess it doesn't really matter, but I think it's a "Good Idea (tm)" to get an index of the people interested and their preferances so they'll know in advance what games to expect (perhaps some pure FL players don't want to travel the distance if we're only holding NL games for example).

      accordig to the arrest vd Hoge Raad (high council) of march 3 1998 poker is a gamblinggame in the sense of the WOK (Wet Op Kansspel = Law Of Gamblinggames).
      the only place were gambling games are allowed is when Holland Casino is the organising party. exeption is there when the "college van burgemeester en wethouders (lets say towncouncil)" of a place gives a license to an other party according WOK 1a, if the profit of such an event is for the better good (really, it says so in the dutch law).
      But WOK doesnot applicate for places who are not open for public or who are not commercial.
      so it is legal to have a cashgame or tournament in the privacy of your own home as long the organising party has no intentions to make a profit.

      god, am i great

      Great idea. But i doubt playing on a table full of TAG's is going to be very profitable =)

      newsflash: my house mates asked me to keep it down to max 50 players.
      to avoid disappointments, when u say u will attend, be sure u can come.

      btw we solved the beer question: it will be GROLSCH (yeah)
