Welcome to the Arcadia Poker Series!

Our goal: To provide a fun and safe place to play TX hold’em
With a $60 buy-in, it’s affordable and builds a decent prize pool.

Keep in mind that $10 of your buy-in goes to either a cash Bounty or Qualifying Crown and bonus chips for The Royal Championship at the end of the current year.

We have players that do all-time dealing but welcome volunteers in times that our regulars can’t make a game(this doesn’t happen often)

Starting stack: 40,000

Early bird bonus: 5,000
(Must be paid at least 10 mins. prior to schedule start time)

All tournaments are freeze-outs(No re-entry, no rebuy, no add-on)

Crownty

Something new here for even the seasoned player.

Each player is given one Crownty and they work a bit different than your normal bounty tourney.

When player is knocked out, they lose ALL their Crownties to the villain.
Not just one, but all of them.
This changes once you reach final table.

Once at final table, crownties are lost as they would be normally, just one at knockout.

If you have any extra, you must decide then if you want $10 cash per crownty or crowns for the Royal Championship.

Each Crown is worth 10k in bonus starting chips. You also need to be in the top 20 crown holders to get a direct invite.
Those with some crowns but not in the top 20 will still have a chance to play in the Gauntlet

Final Table

Some special rules apply when players want to discuss a chop. First and foremost, if even 1 player says “No” to a chop, then there will be none. ALL players must come to an agreed chop for it to happen. 
If no chop is accepted, then it can not be proposed again until a player is eliminated, and before action starts in the hand immediately following. Once action starts in the next hand, a chop can’t be proposed til another player is eliminated.
