FanimeCon tried this last year, but it never left the planning table for some reason (I'm not sure, but I'm going to say "laws").

We also can't award or charge anything for playing (I think prizes is okay for a reward though).

There will be poker at the tabletop gaming room this year too (there was poker and other "regular" card games there for like 3 years). Just there's no buy ins and no money involved (legal stuff, you know). There will be prizes though.

Off topic:This makes me assume that money matches for video gaming are NOT allowed at Fanime. I'm just assuming.

On topic:I'll just watch the Poker games.

There is going to be Texas Hold'em at Tabletop Gaming.  I'm volunteering as one of the dealers.  The info above is correct.  Prizes are available.

Do we have a time on when this is starting? Just so the board-viewers know. :)

The tourament went really well this year. Friday I was knocked out early (by someone who picked up a set of 8s on the turn) but Saturday I came out better and placed fourth.

What I would like to see next year is more people, and actual felt tables that we can bring in that stand on their own, and not like one that is put over a table. Also, whoever is working on this project this year can find out if someone can donate a bracelet ala the WSOP, have the FanimeCon logo engraved in it, and given out to the winnner.

Suggestion: the round tables used in the Console gaming area of E-gaming would work perfect actually, if you wanted to setup a dedicated poker/texas hold'em/blackjack station or two. I'll be your number one visitor, as I love this type of stuff.

So just barely finding this thread ( ehee...^^; ) I arranged Tabletop 07 with more long tables than round ones knowing I only had two legitimate dealers to do Texas Hold'em andm more support for traditional TCG games and like... Apples to Apples. Maybe if I'm running Tabletop next year I'll consider putting in more round tables if I get more dealers. If that happens... then CERTAINLY. I'll hold a Anime Poker Tournament.
