Aw man, having a Holdem tournament would be sweet. I'd go for that. But it would have to be on Saturday or Sunday..

Fanime needs to get their act together if they have more Texas Hold 'Em tournaments. They have you go and sign up for a specific time and then start early anyway. I got there ten minutes early and was told that they were sorry but gave my seat away because they wanted to start early. I don't know who was in charge but maybe they shouldn't be.

Yeah, it was really unorganized and they need to have it set up to be on the schedule for next year.

Agreeing with this. I really wanted to play poker, but didn't even realize one was planned the last minute.

This can be attributed to the fact that person who originally did the Hold'em tournaments at FanimeCon 2008 couldn't make it at the last minute for FanimeCon 2009.
I actually didn't think there would be tournaments, but alas there was...
I'm hoping that the person who's been doing it is coming back for FanimeCon 2010 so that order can be restored and we can do this the right way.

If there was a Poker Tournament set up at FanimeCon 2009, it was set up at the very last minute. When the Pocket Schedule + Program Guides went to print, the Poker Tournament was already canceled.

My dream is to rent out some poker chips and tables for the convention, hold a multiple-day tournament with prizes donated by sponsors. If only this could happen without anyone one of us spending our own money...

We should do a $5 buy in! OR people could bring some of their favorite mangas and though would be what we play for.

I dont think the $5 buy in would work either, but the manga idea sounds like fun! Pocky gets a little boring you know? I can only eat so much! And of course I am down to play!
