I personally would love to see tournaments split in to categories-weekly casino tournaments, which as mentioned above should be regularly updated by the casino themselves. And also a thread dealing with event trnys, but it would be great if it were divided into a buy in sub category. I enjoy scrolling through all the tourneys but im not exactly rolled for the bigger ones and spend a lot of time searching for 100-250 buyin trnys. Just a thought! Thanks for reading!

Hi,

I would like to see ShoutBox on this forum. It is really useful when you are looking for a quick help.
Also if there was somekind of the calender (one place), where you go and see, e.g.:
- There is tourney weekly tourney in Dundrum on Monday
- Cash game on Tuesday in "some" club

Today is very hard to find where you can play in specified day.

Would love to see the tourney calender back was a great way to see what was happening for the year.

couple of suggestions:
not necessarily for festivals but could include any decent tourney that wasn't part of a weekly/monthly schedule
If the calender and tournament schedule were stickied beside each other in the "tournament and events" section
I know they all have their own threads anyway but can be spread out over a number of pages and in two seperate sections hard to see what is on when or can miss some threads altogether.
Think this would help both players and promoters

Regarding the Tournament schedule(read it hasnt been updaded in months) i'm sure it takes a lot of effort to keep that updated constantly if there was a way for each club/casino to keep their own up to date or at the very least a simple e-mail every time they did change their schedule. Im sure it is in every clubs/casino's interest to have their schedule posted on here.

As much as I enjoy the site I find the threads quite cluttered regarding events.

There bundled on top of each other... Perhaps if the events were categorized into areas.. Say north Dublin / South dub ... leinster coonnacht munster Ulster.. Just an idea..

Sort of agree with fishtank.
A good start would be to list all major Irish Festivals in the Irish Festivals sub section eermmm where they should be.

They had tried this before and it didn't seem to work so it was scrapped

Would love to see the return of the calender for MTT's was a great idea

We tried this before and it was found not to work. We don't generally police those forums unless something is brought to our attention, so threads often ended up in the wrong place, and it was generally decided by the users of the area that the region specific forums were not a good idea.

On the festivals thing Mick, same as above, if they are in the wrong place we generally won't know unless someone tells us they are in the wrong place, which no one has done. I know I rarely look in that section unless there is a reason, and I think the others are the same.

Local games getting a look in

I would like to see local grassroots games not affiliated with casinos or having big festival buy ins getting a chance to advertise. I think the future of the game lies in local games being capable of attracpting decent numbers and in order for to this they need a platform to advertise and protote local poker in their localities. Therefore I'd like to see boards setting aside a section for local poker tournaments with modest buy ins where local organisers can advertise their games and provide information about start times possible numbers and whether the event is going to be cancelled etc. I've tried to create a thread promoting a local game that I attend and for which I'm not associated with in any capacity except as a player. The title of the thread is Texas hold 'em tournament in Athlone Wednesday nights and I think such threads should be allowed by poker boards as it potentially can provide a fgteat service to local players to find out when and where local games are happening in their towns.
Just putting that out there.
Please poker boards don't ban me or my thread. Thank you.

Why would we ban you for that?

There has always been a policy in place here where any organiser of any game, no matter how small, can post their event in the tournament forum. That is what it is for. All we ask is that people follow the specific format of advertising their game which will give the relevant information to people who may wish to play the game.

If you post a thread with details like:

Game in XYZ Pub Athlone, €50 buy in.

Then it will be deleted if spotted as it doesn't give the required detail. This is true of a large event as much as a small one. We receive no money from anyone for using this forum for their games, no matter who they are, and we would never even think of doing so.

This is all generally speaking, but there may be some specific cases (yours may be one of those, or may not be, I don't personally know) where people in the last have not provided the relevant information when asked, or have failed to address allegations of irregularities in games, and when these are not addressed posting privileges may be withdrawn. These are the only circumstances where games won't be allowed to advertise. There are also places who were previously prevented from posting for whatever reason, who subsequently engaged and provided answers and were allowed to post again.

As I said above though, I don't know what the situation is in this case as I am not familiar with it.

Edit: I've just seen that you registered an account earlier with the charming name of glennfogartyisafag http://www.irishpokerboards.com/forum/member.php?u=4871 and posted the same information. I'm sure someone who is more familiar with this than me will clarify later, but even from first glance, you have not followed the posting charter for tournaments. You found this thread ok, you have no excuse for missing the one right beside this one. http://www.irishpokerboards.com/foru...thread.php?t=6

As I said in the post I am only player who would like to see a decent poker game going my town. I don't own the game or have a financial interest in it. However I would be fully willing to provide as much information as I have about my own experiences of the game which I tried to explain we're positive. Yes I'm advertising and promoting it, but this is based on my own personal experience as a player. What other information is required namely about irregularies or the like all I can provide is my own experiences playing the game which if you must know where of the highest standards of gentlemenly conduct and Integrity.
Boards needs to understand that postings given information about a tournament especially a small local one are not always by people affiliated to that tournament in a financial or organisational capacity. Very often they are based on a player wanting to get the word out about a tournament so that it increases the numbers and consequentially increases the prize pools. I'm not sure if this is advertising or just word of mouth or a players opinion. I believe boards needs to make this distinction as it will help the forum immensely by making players not advertisers as the focus of information exchange within the forum.
As regards the glennfogartyisafag name I can only apologise to those concerned and hope that boards is in the spirit of Good Friday a forgiving soul.
