      High pay-out for the persons at the final table? Who needs 0.50$ for 50th place anyway?

      Something like GMT+1 20:00 would be nice?

      Cool, finally a freeroll that could be worth investing time in.
      A steep structure would be nice and 20.00 GMT would be perfect.

      Can we decide about the payout structure after it's been played.
      So if I finish 40th, I think the best payout structure would be

      1. $30
      2. $12
      40. $968

      hmm i wonder how many germans will join us at the english forum for this freeroll. ze will all zpeak english for a zudden.


      personaly i prefer a high pay out for the first 5 players. i would like it this way

      1. 40 % :club: 1 hour private coaching
      2. 30 % :club: 1 hour private coaching
      3. 15 %
      4. 10 %
      5. 5 %
      (6. a free trip to kernnwasser wunderland)
      (7. 1000 PP)
      (8. a ferm handshake)
      (9. a date with stefan)

      maybe u could give all the players at the final table a t-shirt with the logo of PS
      blind intervals 15 min.

      since i am a weekend daddy i would like the tournament to start at 19:00 Central Dutch Time, gives me the change to clean the house and scrape the panncakes from the ceiling.

      I think you should have a prize structure for each continent...then have a special tournie as a world PS challenge

      (given I'm in Australia, this suits me as I find our players terrible)

      fast

      I'd definitly play for #9! ...or maybe not :D

      Have to see if I can make the PP though, exhausted and pretty much sleeping all the time right now.


      Oh btw Stefan, I don't know if this will come up, between the above and Bosch's ceiling pancakes, but Bosch and me are on the association list at party since we've played at each others homes with our accounts (dead internet connections or simply "coaching" each other) and as such can't sit down at the same ring table. Will this be a problem for the tournament?

      Shouldn't be a problem. The "ban" should only be at SnGs and cashgame tables :)
