      Dear Diamonds,
      Dear Coaches, Moderators, Freelancers and Community,

      We and the sponsor William Hill are glad to announce/invite you to our first ever Diamond Community Event.

      The event will be held on the 24th July 2010 as of 4.30pm in the dignified premises of the Casino Hamburg, Germany.

      Casino Esplanade
      Stephansplatz 10
      20354 Hamburg


      4:30pm: Doors open
      5 to 9pm: Diamond Summer BBQ
      9pm: Welcoming by OnkelHotte (Head of Education) and William Hill
      9.30pm to open-end: Diamond Social with lounge music and numerous representatives of PokerStrategy.com and William Hill.


      This is our great package for you:

      • 4 hours free drinks: wine, Prosecco, beer, Fanta, Coke, water, juices - from 5.to 9pm
      • A nice BBQ that should satisfy all appetites (meat and vegetarian)
      • One free companion who will also enjoy the drinks and free BBQ
      • A small amount of chips to get some drinks at the subsequent Social from 9pm on
      • The possibility to multiply these chips at special tables of the Casino (Black Jack and Roulette)
      • Free entry to a big party in the same building - unfortunately you can’t use the chips there, but drinks can be taken from the Social to the party area
      • Free entrance to the Big Game, which refers to the regular gambling activities at the casino – please additionally request this at the registration (Keep the dress code of the Casino Hamburg in mind –if you don’t wanna care about the dress code, you can still enter the entire event without admission to the gaming area)

      PokerStrategy.com will be there for you:

      To get to know you better and especially to give you the opportunity to bring up feedback we will send representatives from all major departments to the event:

      The main host will be Dr. Tobias Georgi aka OnkelHotte, representative of the PokerStrategy.com senior management and the Education department. Hadi will represent the Community Management. In addition, we invited colleagues from the Human Resources Department, senior IT personnel and a booth of our online shop for you. There you’ll be able to check the looks and quality of known articles, see our latest additions to our product line and directly buy them without any delivery time. And of course the organizing Event Team (Marina, Lars aka havox and Pius) can be found at the event (in case they don’t work behind the scenes).

      We also expect many freelancers, moderators and coaches, who are also invited to the event.

      William Hill

Not only are they gonna attend the event to get your feedback, but William Hill is also running some great promotion prior to the event. During the event’s qualification period you will get double StrategyPoints at William Hill until the 7th July – which means you get 10 SP per $ / rake.

      Information about the party in the Casino Hamburg:

      If you’re more into clubbing than a chilling Social Event, we have good news for you: We’re organizing a party in cooperation with the Casino, so that you don’t have to leave the location to celebrate. The party is not run by us, so the chips for free drinks can’t be used here. But you can enter the party for free and furthermore we achieved that you can take the drinks from the Social Event to the party. So you can switch locations between the Social, the party and the Big Game in the Casino Hamburg all night long.

      Information for entering the Big Game in the Casino:

      As mentioned earlier, you’ll have to tell us at the registration, if you wanna use the free entry for the Big Game in the Casino. We’re going to send the first name, last name and date of birth to the casino, address or other contact details will not be forwarded.
      To enter the event you will have to present your ID - no entry without ID.

      To get into the Big Game you need to wear a proper shirt and leather shoes. We were able to get rid of the obligatory jacket, the casino would anyways be happy to see some jackets.


      For the safety of all guests, we would like to point out that “problems” due to excessive alcohol consumption will lead to the exclusion from the event. We would therefore like to ask everyone not to overdo the alcohol.

      To counteract excessive alcohol consumption, we decided to NOT serve "strong" alcohol, but wine, Prosecco and beer. Of course anyone can get vodka and other drinks at the party.


      The entire team of PokerStrategy.com and William Hill is looking forward to meet you. Just ask in this thread for any questions or tell us your feedback.

      Best regards,

      Your Event Team
