Poker Royale (29/52)

Postby DaUltimateBully on Sun Dec 04, 2011 2:37 pm

Welcome to the Poker Royale, a merger of poker, Risk, and swiss-style tournament play.

Format
The Poker Royale will be run in three stages:

Stage One: The first stage is a swiss-style tournament stage. Each player will compete in five rounds. Matches for later rounds will start only as soon as all players in the match are ready. After each round is finished, I will evenly divide my trusty 52-card deck(no jokers) into groups of 4 cards, one for each game. Each player, in order of their placement in their game in that round, will get to look at and choose one of the cards in their match's group of cards. Players will not be able to see the cards any of the other players from their match picked. The players with the top 16 hands will advance. In the event of a complete tie for the last available position(s), one single elimination match will be held.
NOTE: Due to how this tournament is set up, more than one deck of cards will be in play. Players are forbidden from selecting a card identical in suit and value to a card they already possess.

Stage Two: The second stage is another swiss-style stage, but will work differently. Players will be dealt 5 cards for their hand to begin the stage. Players will then compete in another 4 rounds. After each round, 20 cards will be randomly selected and split into 4 groups of 5, one for each match. Players will then in turn order elect whether to keep their hand or swap one of their cards for one of the cards in their match's group. The players with the top 4 hands will advance. Again, in the event of a complete tie for the last available position(s), one single elimination match will be held.

Finals: The finals will consist of one, single elimination match. The winner of this match shall be crowned the Poker Royale Champion.

The following game settings will be used throughout the tournament:
  • Players: 4
  • Game Type: 4
  • Map: Poker Club
  • Initial Troops: Automatic
  • Play Order: Sequential
  • Spoils: Escalating

Ranking of Hands

The following ranking will be used for hands:
  1. Royal Flush: An ace, king, queen, jack, and 10 of one suit.
  2. Straight Flush: Any 5 sequential cards of the same suit. Straight Flushes will be ranked among themselves by the value of the highest card.
  3. Four of a kind: Any 4 cards of the same value. Four of a kinds will be ranked among themselves first by the value of the four cards and then by the value of the unattached card.
  4. Full House: Any three cards of one value and two cards of another one value. Full Houses will ranked among themselves first by the value of the three cards and then by the rank of the two cards.
  5. Straight: Any 5 sequential cards. Straights will be ranked among themselves by the value of the highest card.
  6. Three of a kind: Any three cards of one value. Three of a kinds will be ranked among themselves, in order, by: (1) the value of the three cards, (2) the value of the higher unattached card, and (3) the value of the lower unattached card.
  7. Two Pair: Any two pair of cards of the same value. Two pairs will be ranked among themselves, in order, by: (1) the value the higher pair, (2) the value of the lower pair, and (3) the value of the unattached card.
  8. One pair: Any one pair of cards of the same value. One pairs
  9. Junk: Any combination that matches no other named combinations. Junk will be ranked among itself, in order, by: (1) the value the highest card, (2) the value of the second highest card, (3) the value of the third highest card, (4) the value of the second lowest card, and (5) the value of the lowest card.

In the event of a hands still being tied after being ranked by the criteria above, to prevent tiebreaker matches, hands will be ranked by suit in accordance to this order:
  1. ♦Diamonds
  2. ♣Clubs
  3. ♥Hearts
  4. ♠Spades

General Achievement Award

Approved by DJ Teflon at CC Time: 2011-12-06 6:22:00

As you may have realized, the hardest hand to acquire, as can be said in standard poker, is the royal flush. While it is somewhat hard to achieve in the second round, it is almost impossible to acquire it in the first round. Therefore, as an incentive to try your hardest to get first place in the first round, the first player to form a royal flush in the first round will receive a General Achievement Award.

Fremiums

Free members are allowed, but must keep one slot open for the tournament until they are either messaged saying that they have been eliminated or they are crowned champion.

I don't mean this to be critical of your opinion, but how is that going to improve anything?
