The Ultimate RIP HUNL Tournament *2017 Edition*

Hi guys,

I would like to invite you all to play another edition of the 2p2 RIP HUNL tournament. We already held this tournament last year, and feedback from the players was really positive!

Old thread: http://forumserver.twoplustwo.com/58...ition-1614874/

This year's edition will be very similiar to last year's:
  • Buy-in: 350.
  • Min. amount of players: 16; max. amount of players: 32, first-come first-serve.
  • Participants will be randomly drawn into a tournament bracket.
  • Matches will be played over PS homegames using play money chips as buy-ins.*
  • The winner of a round is determined using the best-of-five modus (win three matches to get through), and matches are effectively played as deep HUSNGs, using these settings:



    which produce the following structure sheet:

    .

    * As you can see the min. play money buy-in for this game is now 20k chips -- last year it was 1.10. If somebody doesn't have that many play money chips, the alternative would be to play with real money where the cheapest option is $0.11, which should be ok.
  • Matches should be played on two tables at a time unless players have to wait for the new table to pop up or if there is only one match left to play.
  • The payout structure is 50% for 1st, 25% for 2nd, and 12.5% each for 3rd and 4th place.
  • The exact time table is to be determined -- I suggest that we play mid-September. Last year's edition had 16 runners and took about 2 weeks in total to finish. Players will coordinate their matches over Skype or 2p2, and will have a few days to set up and complete each round of play.
  • Just like last year, I have asked PS for permission for this tournament (as well as using an escrow to collect the buy-ins and distribute the prizes):

    Spoiler:


    The first part of the correspondence can be found in the old thread.
  • We need an escrow, if anyone reputable can help out it would be much appreciated!
  • Obligatory: I reserve the right to disqualify players from participating; obviously I'm not planning on using this strategically, but if I know you and you have a scummy rep, I won't let you play.

Please indicate your interest by posting "in". We will wait a few weeks and see how many ppl are interested, and make a decision about the time table and eventual byes/other stuff at the end of this month. Everyone can join the home game, PM me for info! Help spreading the word!

Looking forward to it, let's go!

No idea how to play HUNL in 2017 but **** it, in.

Can I pay via Skrill or Bitcoin or something (Estonians don't have Stars transfers)?

I know that it was possible to play playmoney games with people from usa earlier, but i think that got removed actually. I would log into stars and test it.
