Does the lure of the bluff make you nervous? Think you can read your opponents face even when they’re a playstation home character? Have you got what it takes to challenge first the English forum, and then finally the world? If so then read on!

 

Welcome to the 1st OPC/Home Poker World Tournament! Over the coming weeks you’ll first do battle against like-minded gamers here on the English forum. If you make the cut, the rest of the world will be waiting to dish out their brand of hustling. Tough enough to survive them, then you’ll be crowned the OPC world poker champion. It’s time to show them who is boss.

 

What do you need to do?

 

  • Firstly, apply for the tournament by signing up here in this thread. Everyone is welcome, from noobs to hustlers! Applications for the tournament are open for the next two weeks. The closing date is 9pm, 2nd of April.

 

  • If you haven’t done so, download Home (and its patches). When the tournament starts you’ll get an invite into the tournament.

 

  • Check back here regularly for more information.

 

  • Brush up on your poker skills!

The hosts

 

Here on the UK forum the hosts for the tournament are RenegadeXtreme and englishgolfer. They will be posting more information in the coming days.

 

The set up

 

Some dates to look out for:

19th March – 2nd April: Get your applications in!

 

5th April: Start of the tournament

 

3rd May: Semi final

 

10th May 17th May: World Championship final 20:00 BST

 

We’ll be playing no limits Texas hold ‘em. Pending on the amount of applicants, it will determine how people progress. More details closer to the closing date! The top two forum players will then go on and represent the English forum at the semi final. From there, the top six players from that tournament will then face off each other in a one-table sitting. Only one will be crowned World OPC Poker champion!

 

The prize

 

Our very own TheNarrator has created these special one-of-a-kind avatar and sig that the top UK player can proudly use on these forums.

 

However, the greater prize will be knowing that you are the best poker player on Home and these forums.

 

 

The Final six:

 

Le_Belge76140 - France

thelink19 - Italy

DanceNinja - Russia

mazbot - France

Brandoino1984 - Portugal

Inimeg13 - Russia

just a quick heads up concerning the poker league. everything is in place - we've got a brand new thread in the pipe line, plus a number of us that will be hosting it. we're just going to wait until this tournament finishes to kick off the league!

but turning our eyes back to the grand final this coming thursday - how many of you will be showing up to cheer on the finalists?

Awesome EG. I will pop in for the final even though there's nobody for me to support. Perhaps I'll support the worst dressed or something :D

Not at all, i think if you have already been sent something from the machine then by rights you should have one in your inventory. Next time your at your harbour studio, click redecorate and it should be in the active items slot :Thumbs:

LordRoss should be coming out with a new date and time very soon for the finals. on a downside, for those of us waiting for the start of the poker league, i'm afraid we'll push it back until after the final. stay tuned!

I've been saying I will not participate in today's final as the representative of Portugal.
He died one of my best friends from motorcycles with 24 years, was the day of his years. A child with 3 years old.

If they can get another player for me in Portugal. say something in our forum.
