Let’s send a player to the WSOP Main Event.

Even if you’re not the lucky one to go, you will have a stake in the player that does.
Each AMESS game you play will earn you a 0.1% stake.

Buy-in: $80
($50 Pool + $30 AMESS)

Pool payouts will be the standard:
1st – 50%
2nd – 30%
3rd – 20%

Top 9 players at each game will earn 1 Crown each.

Point Average x Crowns = SCORE
The player with the highest overall “Score” will earn the right to play in the WSOP Main Event*.

Now for the technical mumbo jumbo:

There’s not a pre-set number of games as there’s no way to predict how many players will be attending each one.
Instead, there will be and end number of entries. Minimum entries to award the champion is 360(Winner takes all).
However, we will keep playing, as to be able to payout three runner-ups.
Once we reach at least 471 entries(Max 510 entries), this will be the final game of the series.
Any money remaining after paying the Champion($11,600) will be awarded to the next 3 runner-up players(based on top scores) at 40%, 35% & 25%, respectively.

Due to the number of entries and games being unpredictable, ending the series early or playing on until the following year may be required. This will be determined as the series progresses and decided upon accordingly as needed.

By entering any of these AMESS games, you understand and agree to the terms within.
Each game is played down to at least a final table of 9 players. At final table, a chop can be proposed and can only be done after a player is knocked out and before the next hand is completely dealt.
Points will be based on chip stacks. In case of equal chip counts, you will receive an average of the sum of points in your respected positions.

The goal of this series is to reach $11,600 and send a player to the WSOP Main Event.
*The player with the highest “Score” is the first eligible. This player(if able to attend WSOP Main Event) is scheduled to receive $11,600 and must use $10,000 to enter the WSOP Main Event. The remainder is for travel and food expenses or to do with as they wish.
If this player is unable to attend, then the main prize will be awarded to next player(under the same terms) in line with the highest score, and so forth and so on, until we have a runner-up player that can attend.
Runner up cash prize(s) will be awarded accordingly to players that can not attend the WSOP main event.
In the rare case that none of the 4 top players can attend the WSOP Main Event, I propose paying them the runner-up prizes as promised with $1,600 from the Main Event cash going to the Champion.
Then using the $10,000 meant for the WSOP Main Event towards our top players that can attend other WSOP events in the current season, with each promising the returned stake percentage winnings to all those that invested in the AMESS.

Also, let us be civil and avoid any legal issues. Please adhere to paying out the stakes that everyone has earned. Any taxes will be the winner’s responsibility and stakes will be payed out accordingly pre-tax.
