    I just received an e-mail from Dr. Bass who informed me that he made the final table for the big tournament on the UBT Cruise. Didn't hear who any of the other players were in the finals.

    He told me the finalist all chopped the pot, didn't hear how much each player won. They had a total of 19 players for the blackjack tournament.

    First of all, congrats to Dr. Bass and the others who made that final table.

    Oh, geez - Rick - please tell us that "19 entries" was a typo. For their so-called big tournament?
    If that wasn't a typo, it's a really sad statistic. :(

    Congratulations Ted

    Way to go Ted, that is three members that we know of that made the final table, (TedinNaples, DrBass, and BJMace). Congratulations to all three players.

    The 19 players was correct, but thats not unusual on the cruise tournaments. Passengers that are not part of the tournament group are not allowed to play in events not organized by the cruiseline.

    I have the same problem on my cruise events. If we could open the events up to ALL the passengers we could have alot bigger tournaments.

    I haven't heard how many poker players were at their event.

    What was the prize fund?

    Congrats to Ted, DrBass and Mace!

    The entry fee was something like $200+$35. So, that means that the final 6 players probably split $3,800.

    From the wayback machine... LVA Forums, 1/9/08

    Looks like I was being overly optimistic back in January. :) My guess is that very few people bought an entry (for a small field, it was probably pretty difficult) and that the prize pool was made of almost entirely package winners using their free entry. But I would still guess that the Poker tournament will have around 30 entries (as poker is still more popular than BJ on ClubUBT).

    Well, congrats to Spore as well! Looks like the cream of the crop at the final table. Sounds like the SNGs are where a lot of the action is at. Good Luck Mace...don't let them catch you!
