Details on how to join the SportsMap/ESPN 97.5 online poker club
SportsMap and ESPN 97.5 are setting up an online poker club, where we eventually hope to do some real money tournaments with charity donations. The idea is to try to have a little fun while we have some down time and hopefully raise some money.
We will be using Pokerstars.net, a free site. (NOT dot.com. That site is not legal in America).
Here's what you will need to join:
1) A pokerstars.net account
2) A PayPal account for when we do real money events
Once you are set up on poker stars, go to home games (lower right hand corner on your laptop, it is not currently available on the mobile app), and join group #3341474
Password is shuffledeal (this is also your invitation code).
You will need 20,000 free chips to play. You get 35,000 at sign up, and can get an additional 15,000 per day. They also offer an option to buy a million in chips for $2.99.
We are doing nightly free tournaments with prizes. On Saturday, we will do a paid tournament. We are also doing nightly paid sit n gos.
It will cost you 20,000 of your original sign in chips, so if you want to play the next one, make sure you acquire additional chips prior to the next tournament. If the test goes well, we will set something up for Saturday afternoon.
