Lemmings Forums club on PokerStars
« on: July 27, 2016, 01:11:21 pm »
We have a few players (including myself) who are quite into Poker, so I thought I'd set up a club on PokerStars so we can play! :)

Because I want this to be for forum members only, I'm not going to post the invitation code here. PM me if you want it; I also give full permission for members who already have the code to tell other members what it is via private means (note: mentioning it in the #neolemmix or #lix channels does NOT count as private because the logs from these are publicly viewable; but private message on IRC is acceptable), so that there's no need to wait for me to be online if someone wants to join (although note that I still have to approve the joining, even with the code; this just means we don't need to be online at the same time). Those who aren't members of the forum itself but are established as part of the community elsewhere (for example, #lix members who aren't registered here) are welcome too.

All forum staff can also give you the invitation code even if they aren't in the club themself, as I posted it in the private staff board for exactly that purpose.

To join the club, open PokerStars, go to Home Games (under "More" on the right of the main lobby), click "Join a Poker Club", and enter the club ID (2071858) and the invitation code (you'll need to get this privately from me or someone else who has it). EDIT: I've attached an image that should help show what to click.

See the second post for information on the currently-available tables / tournaments within the club.

According to PokerStars support, even US-based players should be able to join, but they will only be able to participate in play money games (with the exception of New Jersey residents, who can also join the real money games).

(Don't forget - you'll need PokerStars play money chips to play. Don't ever buy them (unless you want to, I guess); every four hours you can get 12.5k chips for free by clicking the "Free Play Chips" in the Cashier. Since the lowest buyin a tournament can have is 20k chips, I recommend doing this from time to time even when we're not playing, just so you're ready for when we are.)

EDIT: I did have the various tables / tournaments listed here, but there hasn't really been much activity so far, so I removed the list, as PokerStars seems to remove the games after a while if they don't get activity. If things do pick up, I'll put a list back here, otherwise I'll use it for upcoming one-offs and stuff.

Just to remind everyone that you need to click the 'More' button on the bottom right side to access the 'Home Games' option.

Edit: Also, to make it clear, you type the password in the 'invitation code' box.

What a group of friends and I used to do after Black Friday in the US is play something like 2/5 play money, or a play money tournament, with the backing that, say, the 2/5's chips were worth a cent each, and the game was $.02/$.05, and the tournaments were a $5 buy-in, or something. We'd have a trustworthy person hold the money on PayPal and receive/send it based on results.

I'd play, and be willing to play for real money under a system like this. Also, assuming my account hasn't been wiped (I don't see why not), I have like 2.5 million play chips in case people need to reload and lose their play chips quickly.

I don't want to be responsible for managing a system like that, but I won't stop other people from doing so (and it's possible I might even join in playing).

I've PM'd you the invitation code for the group.

I'm going to set up a Texas Hold'em tournament to run in about 15 minutes. (This will be a play money tournament. If you need play money chips, go to the Cashier in PokerStars and there should be a refill button; this is free.)

If you haven't already joined the group and you're interested, PM me or ask on #neolemmix for the invitation code. If you have, come join!

The tournament is the "#NeoLemmix Tournament" one. You can find it in the club's "Schedule" tab.


Late registration will also be available for 10 minutes after the tournament starts, but please be aware that I'll be focusing on the tournament (and not on accepting group joins) so you'll need to at least join the group before it starts.

Even with only three players, the tournament was fun! :) I also recorded it (though of course, you won't be able to see players' hole cards apart from mine, unless the hand went to showdown), the video is here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0itSBdNZec8

(There's no voice, due to the fact that I was using earphones that have a broken mic (but I didn't know they had a broken mic), but you can still see the gameplay.)

Hopefully we'll get even more people for the next one!

As you saw in the video, I was the one that missed out. :( If you've given everyone let alone me more notice then more players would've easily joined in.

I'm just wondering when will the next game take place? Just note that for this week I can't do Friday after 16:00 or Saturday 11:00-18:00 (all times BST) because of shift work.

There's no set schedule. We decided to have a game as a spur-of-the-moment thing in #neolemmix, and not wait too long (or have a game that lasts too long) as both other players wanted to do Lemmings recordings soon after.

With that being said, if people are interested in having tournaments as a regular thing, I can definitely set up a recurring one. The previous ones I set up didn't really take off, but perhaps if we discuss what time and day(s) suit the majority of members (keeping in mind that of course, there's no obligation to play every time the tournament runs), it'll be more successful - and of course, we can still have these "spur-of-the-moment" games too.

IMO, it'd be great if we have at least two regular recurring tournaments - one for Texas Hold'em and one for Omaha. :) Play money seems to be most people's preference, though as I've mentioned before, I'm not averse to having the odd real money (though, low stakes) game too. :) For the record, the lowest-stakes real money tournament I can set up would be US$0.11 for entry; though it is worth noting that PokerStars' minimum deposit is $10.00.

(It might help if we use UTC (GMT) times, rather than our local timezone, to discuss what time would work best for everyone.)

I'm fairly flexible, though something around midday UTC would work best for me.

Best time for me would be anytime between 8:00 and 14:00 (2:00 AM) UTC. Though on the later side the better.

Best times for myself would be midnight-3am in GMT. I can be available any night at those times really because my work shifts are always the same hours at the moment and midnight is just after I get back from work.

Even though it was just 3 of us earlier, it was pretty fun. I can imagine it would be even better with even more players :thumbsup:

I've put a poll up with some options (I only covered the weekend at this stage, as I figure that's when people are most likely to be available). Of course further discussion is good too, but if no other widely-liked alternative is agreed on, I'll probably set up a Texas Holdem tournament at the most popular time, and an Omaha at the second-most-popular.

(I strongly encourage people who are only used to Texas Hold'em to give Omaha a try, by the way - it's really fun, and very easy to learn if you're familiar with Hold'em.)

So far, it's looking like (in UTC) a Saturday game - including perhaps at midnight between Saturday and Sunday - is the most preferable option.

My next question - if we're going to have two games, do we want them close together (eg: 18:00 Saturday and 00:00 Sunday), or a bit further apart (perhaps 00:00 Saturday and 00:00 Sunday)?

I notice that out of the people who voted, these three options were all selected by all but one person (I don't have any way to tell if it was the same person, or different people for each option). So to the people who didn't vote these options - which is your preferred game out of Texas Holdem or Omaha? That way, I can set the game you're less interested in at the time that you're less likely to be available.

BTW I was the one who voted for all times except for 00:00. Looking at the Omaha rules on Wiki I see that it's a bit more complicated. So there's a high and low hand right?

Whether it is or not I still prefer the old fashioned Texas' Hold'em. With two cards rather than four I can make better decisions on what hand should I play.

@Minim: The variant of Omaha which namida plays is not Omaha Hi Lo, he just plays Pot Limit Omaha where there's only a high hand winning like in Texas Hold Em.

The only main difference is that you will get 4 hole cards instead of 2 and you must use 2 of your hole cards and 3 of the community cards to make a hand. So for example if a Royal Flush comes out on the 5 community cards, no one can represent it because they must use 2 of their hole cards and only 3 on the table. It reduces split pot situations mostly and it can be a more complicated game to learn when consider hand strengths when you have 4 hole cards.

I'm sure namida could explain it better than I can though ;P

@namida: I'm easy as long as there is at least 1 midnight game, 18:00 would only be possible if I happen to be off work on that day which is uncommon.

I actually had a practice of the game using a separate Poker app (WSOP) on my IPad before I saw this post. So now I understand what to do. Also I've heard of pot limit before. It's good for beginners because at least you don't need to call all in if someone raises big.

In WSOP the Omaha game is a high hand winning, but with no pot limit.

Anyone up for a one-off game (no real money involved, of course)? Come by #neolemmix or post here if you are, I'm thinking perhaps within the next hour or so (EDIT: might be a bit later than that, as one person's showed interest in playing but is busy right now). :) Texas Holdem or Omaha, whatever people feel like.

Okay, the tournament will be starting at 7PM UTC (in about 30 minutes from now).

If you want to join, set up a PokerStars account (you don't need to deposit any real money to do this!), download the client, and follow the instructions in the original post to join the club so you can see the game. PM me (or anyone else who's in the club) or come on #neolemmix if you need the invitation code or otherwise need help getting in.

If you missed the last game (or just want to play another), we're going to have another one at 23:30 UTC (about 25 mins from the time of this post). Late registration should be available for about 10 minutes after the start of the game.

Looks like we're having a good day today, with a couple of new players joining the action!

We're starting a 3rd tournament in an hour (01:20 UTC). Note that this one will be Pot Limit Omaha rather than No Limit Texas Hold'em.

Good morning!

Just to let you know I'm available at any time this week except for Friday afternoon if anyone wants me to play. I've been working and sleeping throughout these tournaments so far and I just feel like I can't afford to miss too many sessions.

I'm pleased to find out that more players are turning up. :thumbsup:

We're considering having a game in a bit; probably in about an hour or so. Most likely Texas Holdem this time. Come on #neolemmix if you want to discuss or need help getting into the group. :)

We're having a game in about 15 mins (sorry for the short notice, forgot to make a post until Proxima reminded me to). Late registration should be available for 10 minutes after it starts.

If you miss that one, there'll probably be at least a second one.

Time to try something a bit different! We're starting a game in 15 minutes that's a mix of Holdem and Omaha. I believe the way it works is that the game changes after every orbit (though it could be every hand?) - not entirely sure as I haven't played this before.

I'm back from holiday now. :) I'm hoping to get my first game of poker on PS later on today. I'm thinking around 21:00 UTC to give everyone (as well as me) time to prepare themselves.

Edit: Well, having no luck. :( Appears that I'm the only one turning up at this time. Also, I can't seem to create a tournament. I might try again tomorrow.

Only myself or those marked as club admins can set up games. To better cover times when I'm not online, I've granted Flopsy, Insane Steve and Proxima the ability to set up games too.

Anyway, we have a game starting in 45 minutes. :)

I see. Thanks for this valuable info and sorry for my misunderstanding. I'm going to PM these people to see if they can set up a game sometime during the weekend which I can get involved in.

To be clear: They didn't yet have this ability at the time you made that earlier post; I gave them it earlier today.

Ah, it's too late. I've sent the PM just a few minutes ago! :-[

Also, I don't know if I responded to this question that you asked earlier, but I don't have email notificatons on PMs.

For what it's worth - at the moment, we're usually arranging games via the #neolemmix chat, and they're most often happening between 8PM and 2AM UTC. We don't have any specific recurring time for a game, we just happen to be generally playing at around the same time most days.

OK. Fair enough. I'll try and register an account there and hope for better things.

Set up a game for in about 50 mins.

We're thinking of doing something a bit different for this one: Having a Skype voice chat running while the game is played, between all players. We won't outright say "don't play if you can't join the chat", but it'd be great if as many people as possible do. It might work well, it might not; only one way to find out. :)

We have uploaded the videos of the Skype game. It is definitely my favorite episode, and even if you don't normally watch/play poker, you should definitely check them out!

Starting a game in about 20 minutes. Just a regular game, no Skype needed for this one.

Please note: A while back PokerStars made a change to Home Games; the minimum buyin we can set for a tournament is now 20k chips (instead of 1 chip).

Free refills are now 12.5k chips instead of 1k, and no longer have a requirement of "You can only refill if you have under 1000 chips", which somewhat helps offset this. However, it's limited to use once per 4 hours. As such - if you're interested in playing, it may pay to log in every now and again and just use this refill option, so you have plenty for when the games are on.

Alternatively, for those who have the option and don't mind it, we could consider some micro-stakes real money games; the minimum deposit allowed is $10, but the minimum buyin we can set for a tournament is merely 11 cents so such a deposit would last a very long time. The biggest downside (apart from that many people simply wouldn't want to get real money involved) is that this would exclude anyone from the US, except New Jersey.

We have a game starting in about 10 minutes (with an extra 10 mins of late reg available) if anyone's interested.

Been some discussion in IRC of firing this up again. Bumping the topic just in case. :)

I'm always up for poker with you guys, I noticed Insane Steve was on the forums the other day as well so it's strange that this topic gets bumped.

I'm back from my holiday tomorrow anyway and I'm not back at work until 17th July, I can do late evenings and night if I know in advance. There's a Jackbox session on 15th July at 18:00 UTC so as long as it doesn't clash with that, it's all good :)

15 Jul, 6PM UTC... that's 6AM on Monday here, so almost guaranteed I wouldn't be awake anyway. :P

I remember someone mentioned that this weekend wouldn't work well for them, though?

A reminder to anyone who wants to play, but hasn't signed up for an account yet (or hasn't played in a while): Create your account well in advance, and stock up on Play Money chips (you don't need to buy them; just make sure to "Collect" your free chips from the cashier from time to time - IIRC you can get 12k chips once every 4hrs). The minimum we can create a tournament for is 20k play money buyin (or $0.11 in the case of real money games, which would not be accessible to most US-based players and is probably not the preference of most people here). So you'll need to collect at least twice if you want to join a game.

Short notice, but there's a game starting in 10 minutes (with an additional 10 minutes of late registration). And this one should actually go ahead. :)
