Private Tournament Today + Quick Articles Announcement

Pleased, yet somehow a little nervous, to be running the first private tournament organised by myself today! Details are below - I have added $100 in cash from my own account and a $60 token to the Carbon $20k gtd (which I actually won by taking down their affiliates tournament!)

Be great to see a few PG readers at the tables (details below) we also have an Omaha one next Sunday at Full Tilt!

*** Update *** Oops, I won the tournament. Which means we will have to try a little harder to give away the ticket next time... there were only 7 of us which gave an overlay of > $20 per person (well, you have been warned twice now!)... maybe a freeroll next time!

An announcement (or sorts!), we created a new section in the 'SNG' tab at Sit and Go Planet for Heads-Up SNG Strategy to kick things off we have 3 strategy articles from an online Pro, blogger and PokerXFactor SNG Study group moderator 'JackofHeartz'... I was very happy with how these came out (and to get some fresh writing talent onto the site too) take a look when you have a moment... the heads-up section is at the bottom of the SNGs page.

OK - Details of the 'SNG Planet / Poker Strategy Forums' Private Tournament Today

Where: Carbon PokerWhen: 13:00 Eastern Time (18:00 GMT) (will read 12:00 server time' which is Eastern -1) Sunday 20th April
Buy-in: $2+20cGame: No Limit Holdem
Password: 160SNG160
Overlay prizes come in two parts:- $100 in cash added to the prize pool + $60 Token for the $20,000 gtd weekly tournament. Awarding the token will involve 2 steps:

- Winner must send me a PM / comment with their hand history and contact details (including e-mail address registered with Carbon Poker)
- I will then mail Carbon and get the token manually awarded to your account.

Since this may take a day or two to complete the $20k tournament next Sunday may be the first you can aim for.

If you have not yet played at Carbon then you will find this an excellent smaller room with some great in-play features, they have a good range of deposit / withdrawal methods too and a 100% bonus of up to $500 with their code 100FIRST1K (+ freeroll entry). This overlay tournament makes this a great opportunity to check them out for yourself today.

Hope to see as many as possible of you at the tables!

Cheers, Mark
