High-stake Texas Hold'em [Players Wanted]
High-stake Texas Hold'em [OOC]
High-stake Texas Hold'em [IC]


Introduction


As you check the mailbox, you notice one envelope with flashy colors, which turns out to carry the logo from the rather exclusive casino located down town. Opening the letter, you discover it's an invitation for a very exclusive cardgame, with some big money at stake:

You are invited to a high-stave Texas Hold'em game!

The receiver of this letter is invited to a special Texas Hold'em tournament coming this saturday, in a private back room of our casino. This invitation is not tied to a specific person, and can be handed out to a third party, and used as long as all requirements are met:


Tournament requirements:
  • Only people in possession of this invitation are entitled to enter. Only ony person is allowed entrance per invitation. It is not allowed to bring a partner or observer.
  • Participants need to be aware of the rules of Texas Hold'em. Participants that are revealed to be unaware during the course of the game are removed from their tournament. Their entrance money will not be returned.
  • All participants must be present at eight o'clock sharp. The doors to the back room will close at eight o'clock and will no longer allow entrance.
  • All participants must bring in US$ 250,000.= entrance money, including the host. This money forms the tournament prize, with the winner receiving all.
  • Participants are not allowed to wear more than four articles of clothing, including all accessories and jewelry. Articles that come in pairs, such as shoes, socks, gloves and earrings count as a single article of clothing. A wardrobe will be available to store excess clothes.
  • All participants need to be over the age of eightteen.
  • All participants need to appear properly washed. Participants with poor hygiene are not allowed entrance to the game.

Details about the poker rules:
  • Every participant starts the game with 20 chips.
  • The positions at the table will be randomly decided at the start of the game by drawing cards. This will also determine the dealer for the first round. The order of the participants does not change during the game.
  • As long as there are four or more participants remaining, the dealer will not participate in the game for the duration of that round. When three or less participants remain, the dealer will be involved as normal.
  • After every round, the participant to the last dealer's left will be the new dealer.
  • The small blind will start at 1 chip. The big blind will always be twice the small blind.
  • Every time the dealer chip completes another round around the table, the small blind doubles.
  • As long as three or more players remain, the participant left of the dealer will have the small blind and the participant to his or her left will have the big blind. When only two players remain, the dealer will have the small blind, and his or her opponent will have the big blind.
  • There is no limit to the number of chips a player can bet.
  • When participants need to pay more chips than they have to call a blind or bet, they can go all in. A sidepot will be created that contains all the chips that are bet in excess of the broke participant. If the broke participant wins the hand, the sitepot goes to the participant with the next best hand.
  • Participants are not allowed to reveal their cards until after the end of the round. At the end of the round, all participants that haven't folded are required to reveal both cards.
  • If two or more hands are tied, the pot is split among the players. If the pot cannot be evenly split, the remainer will carry over to the next round. If any sidepots are present, the sidepots will be handled first. All chips that can't be evenly split are added to the main pot.

Special rules for this high-stake tournament:
  • After the end of each round, the winner of that round must propose a dare to each player with no remaining chips, if any. Different people can be offered different dares.
  • Participants that decline to perform the dare must discard an article of clothing. Participants that were already naked when they decline a dare are removed from the game.
  • When more than one participant is out of chips, they can be offered a dare to perform together. If one participant declines the dare (and thus drops an article of clothing or is removed from the game), the other participant must still perform a different dare chosen by the game winner.
  • Participants that decided to perform the dare can still back out during the performance of the dare, whereby they have to strip as if they declined it in the first place. If this dare was tied to someone else's dare, the performer of that dare still has to perform a new dare.
  • The game winner can offer a dare that involves the game winner itself or a volunteer. If either the game winner or the volunteer backs out of the dare, the participant that was required to perform the dare is assumed to have completed the dare.
  • A variety of BDSM equipment and toys will be provided that can be included in the dares.
  • If a participant disagrees to a dare (and thus drops an article of clothing), that same dare (or something highly resembling it) cannot be asked to the same person again. If the dare involved another person, a dare is only considered the same if the other person is of the same gender as the first occasion. If it's unclear if a dare resembles a former dare, all remaining participants can vote. If the vote ends in a tie, the dare is considered to be highly resembling the earlier dare.
  • Dares that cause injuries or permanent alterations to the body are not permitted.
  • Dares that require the touching of bodily wastes are not permitted.
  • Dares that require someone to eat or drink anything are not permitted.
  • Dares cannot include any equipment other than those provided.
  • After all participants without chips performed a dare or discarded an article of clothing, they receive an amount of chips equal to ten times the current small blind.

I shall participate myself as well, of course chipping in my own entrance fee. All drinks for the evening will be on me. I hope to have peeked your interest and will be looking forward to the game.

Sincerely,
George Meeson,
Casino Owner.



What I'm looking for


I've already ran this game a while ago, but due to reason not related to the game itself, I had to bail out. If people are interested in this, I want to give this game type another chance.

I'm looking for players that are interested into winning the game. Of course they can enjoy the dares they force others to do, but they have to keep their eyes on the money. There will of course be lots of sex along the way thanks to the dares, but the evening will not end up with everyone hanging in each other's arms in a big orgy.

Players should have at least some knowledge about poker, though they don't have to be experts. We will work with chips, so there will be actual betting. The choice between Drawpoker and Texas Holdem is up for debate. If you're interested in joining, please state your preference, or indicate that you don't mind either way.

We are actually going to play out the hands of poker. Yes, this might take a while, but it's actually the aspect of betting that is part of the charm. To manage this, all players take turn in being the dealer, and the dealer himself will not participate in the current round, but instead hand out the cards to every player over PM, keeping track of which player has what cards.

I don't mind playing the host, but if someone thinks he or she could play a great host, then that person is welcome to take the role of casino owner. The host will participate in the poker game just like any other player would, but the character is also in charge of making sure the glasses of all the ladies remain filled. He's also allowed to describe the room layout in the initial post, but that's optional. Of course it can also be a she, and the name can be changed as desired.

Considering the nature of this game, players shouldn't pay too much attention of the O/O threads of the other players. You are never ever forced to perform a dare. If all the dares kept the offs in mind, people would never be stripping. Likewise, players should not look at each other's O/O threads to seek out something that will make that player pass on the dare. This game will not be on the NC boards, since no NC is included whatsoever. A few generic offs (Mutilation?, Scat?) will apply to the game, though.

Oh yeah, I'd also prefer people to play their own gender. In addition, having a roughly even amount of males and females would be nice.

Thank you for the interest, but you seem to be the only one this time around.

Would people be interested if it wasn't aimed as competitive as this was? For example, a group of friends coming together to play a not so serious game, that's more likely to end up with everyone naked and having fun. Perhaps instead of individual players, there could be couples, and instead of Poker, there could be a more casual game like Liar's Dice.

Hey, this was the first game I ever played on Elliquiy!  I'll totally reprise my character whenever you can get enough people together.

I have to warn you, though, I am now quite a lot better at poker.  :)

*hugs September*

I thought this thread would've almost silently slipped off the first page.

You're welcome aboard, but it's a case of wait and see to discover if this game will draw enough attention :)

Well, what do you know, suddenly I'm getting replies! :) Welcome aboard the both of you.

I put the type of poker up for debate, but if nobody who's currently in minds, we can lock that to Texas Hold'em. :)

I'll keep the thread open for a little longer. I do prefer the number of males and females to be close, but it doesn't have to be exactly 1:1.

There sure is. Welcome aboard!

That brings us to 3 male and 3 female players, which is enough for an interesting game. :)

While the game is still open for others to participate, I'm going to open up an OOC thread so that people can think of working out their characters.

Since the game rules never force a dare on any character (they can always bail out by either stripping or forfeiting the game entirely), but since I do want to keep the possibility for bondage and similar material open, I'm plannong on using the BON board.

So far there is, so welcome. :)

Should we perhaps cap it at 4 men, 4 ladies? Any more than 8 might slow down the game considerably.

I've opened up an OOC and IC thread. While we might still accept more players (Personally, I think one additional lady would be nice before closing signups), I see no reason why we can't yet meet the characters.

I've created an OOC and an IC thread:
High-stake Texas Hold'em - Chips/Clothes Overview and OOC Discussion
High-stake Texas Hold'em - Story thread

I would like each player to make one prologue post in the story thread, which you can use to describe your character, his/her reaction to the letter and/or his/her motivation to actually attend the tournament. When all players have posted, I'll describe the casino owner at the Casino, and after that post, the characters can make their entrance.

You sure you would not want to join? That would bring us to 4 lords, 4 ladies, which is a nice even ratio. :)

EDIT: I was thinking to include character appearance in their prologue post in the IC thread, but I noticed Aiden post his in the OOC thread. Either way is fine for me, but if we use the OOC thread, I think it would be nice if we all claimed one individual post in the OOC thread to post our characters in, before using it for other discussions, so we don't have to search through the thread to find our characters.

I'm not 100% sure Elina realized there was still an open spot. If she had wanted to join, I don't mind to bring her on board. Other than that, I consider this game full.

Just in case some players skimmed over the previous post, the IC and OOC threads are up (check the first post for the links).

All players should make one prologue post that introduces their character and their reason to attend this tournament. When the seven characters other than the casino owner are introduced, I'll introduce the casino owner, and open the door, allowing the characters to enter the room.

Likewise, you might want to include your character in the OOC thread, like Aiden did. Please keep questions in here until all participants have had the opportunity to post their character, so they're grouped together instead of spread around the OOC thread.

I haven't heard back from mrsjaz and ivygrowth.

mrsjaz has been online since I sent the PM, but has not informed me that she is still interested, so I'm assuming she lost interest.

ivygrowth hasn't been online for over three days, which is somewhat of a concern to me as well, but perhaps something's going wrong on her end and she'll be ready to rejoin us.

So we're looking for 1, maybe 2 ladies to reinforce the ranks. :)

Ivygrowth contacted me, that she's unavailable for roleplay for the near future, and has stepped out of the game, which means we're looking at two slots to fill.

Could you make a placeholder post in the OOC thread?

That leaves us with one more female participant slot. :)
