Hey all,

Sorry about the lack of my presence at recent BYOC events. I just finished studying for and taking the GREs, so I should be good to go now until next fall when I go back to school. More poker playing for me, YAY!

Anyhoo, I was wondering if anyone is playing in any of the Lucky Derby WSOP qualifiers this year? They have 2 sections: Sunday, and Mon/Wed. 1 person from each will go. $100 or $65 buyin, and 10 or 20 people in each weeks games. 1 or 2 qualifiers, respectively, go to the final tables, where 2 people will get to go to the WSOP, and get $500. Not bad, I think. I'm signing up for a Wednesday game, so I'll see how I do. Allright guys, see you at the next event, and also looking forward to the big tourney we have going on in a couple weeks!

The qualifiers sound like fun. Somebody win one so I can have a roommate in Vegas for the WSOP!

Starts November 7, 2004
Every Sunday @10am
$60 Buy In Plus $5 Entry Fee
First 20 Players
2 Table Satellite
Ten Week Tournament
Top 2 Players Advance Each Week

So my question if anybody knows is whether or not you have to play every Sunday during the two weeks to qualify which would total $600 or if you win one of the Sundays, youw ould be one of 2 people to go on to a championship round after the 10 weeks is up?

I will call the Derby later but was wondering if anyone already got the 411.

I would suspect that the first and second place finishers of the 10 week qualifiers gather on the 11th week (or sometime thereafter) for a 20 person final with the winner getting a buyin to the WSOP. After the $5 entry fee and assuming a full 20 person qualifier each week, there would be $12,000 accumulated. ($10K for entry, $2K for expenses? or maybe as consolation prizes for some places in final?)

If anyone gets the particulars, please post them.

If you win first or second place in one of the ten Sunday (60 buy-in) tournies, you qualify for the final two-table tournament in the 11th week.

If you win first place on either of the five Monday or Wednesday ($115) tournies, you qualify for a seat at the final one-table tournment.

You have to sign up and pay in person one week in advance. So if you want to play next Sunday, November 14, go to the Derby this Sunday after 12 p.m. to sign up and pay.

The weekday tournaments fill up within a day because there are only ten seats. So if you want to play on a Monday, they suggest you get there the preceeding Monday at 7 p.m. to get in line. Sign-ups begin at 8 p.m.

The Sunday tournaments don't fill up as fast - maybe within two or three days.

The winners of the final tournaments win the $10,000 WSOP buy-in, plus extra $$$ for travel expenses. There is no cash prize given to winners of the qualifiying tournaments.

Has anyone signed up for one yet? If so, how was the action?
