It's Saturday and that means another JIG Poker Night event is coming your way! We'll be taking just a short break from the competition action this afternoon and setting up the poker tables in our own Triplejack poker lounge, as we do every week. The tournaments will get underway beginning at 12 Noon EST (GMT-5). Be sure to join us for some fun and good times, and you just might win yourself a prize or two. And just like every poker night, we have a few prizes to give away to the lucky winners, too!
Prizes up for grabs: Westward games from Sandlot Games. We also have one month of Triplejack Power Player to give away, one deck of Triplejack playing cards, and one JIG Casual Gameplay t-shirt. But, of course, that's not all. The champion of tournaments will be entered into a drawing for a fabulous grand prize: a Nintendo DS Lite! Drawing to be held Saturday, May 26, 2007.
To join us for poker night, be sure use the Triplejack login form here in the sidebar, or use the registration login page, for access to our JIG poker lounge. From there make sure you visit the table named "READ ME PLEASE" for instructions on how to register using the tournament registration form. Registration opens one hour before the event begins.
We had another great poker night last Saturday, and I have another set of winners to report. Similar to last week, we held a series of standard, 11-player, Texas Hold'em tournaments, in which each player buys-in for $500 in chips (money at Triplejack is free). The player to win all of the chips from all of the other players at the table qualified and earned a seat at the final table. This week's qualifiers were...
- Qualifier #1 winner: redwingwest
- Qualifier #2 winner: pyabo
- Qualifier #3 winner: smonsoon
- Qualifier #4 winner: mr_blonde
- Qualifier #5 winner: alerty
- Qualifier #6 winner: bettyboo
- Qualifier #7 winner: dee2
- Qualifier #8 winner: HILOW
- Qualifier #9 winner: Cynic
- Qualifier #10 winner: secret_player
- Qualifier #11 winner: ndthorn
Once all the tournaments were held, these players all took their seats at the final table for a fight to the finish in one grandaddy elimination tournament. The prizes up for grabs that were split among the top 5 finishers:
- (3) 1-year memberships, and (3) 2-month memberships to Quadradius from Jimmi and Brad at Quadradius.com!!
- (1) FREE month Power Player subscription to Triplejack
- (1) FREE deck of Triplejack playing cards
- (1) FREE JIG Casual Gameplay T-shirt
And the lucky prize-winners are:
- 6th place: mr_blonde
- 5th place: smonsoon
- 4th place: alerty
- 3rd place: Cynic
- 2nd place: secret_player
Champion of Tournaments #7: dee2!
Congratulations to all the winners—even if you didn't win a prize at the final table you still walked away with more Triplejack chips than you started with—and thank you all for working with the registration form, thus making this week's tournaments the best ones yet!
A big shout out to Jimmi and Brad at Quadradius.com for sponsoring us with Quadradius memberships to give away as prizes. If you haven't already played Quadradius, or even read our review of it, I recommend that you do. It's a great two-player board game played online, and in your browser. Great fun for people of all ages. And we also want to thank the folks at Triplejack for again sponsoring their part of the prize package for the tournament.
