The Game : Hunt Atrox at OLA39, collect Globals to make a poker hand. For example, a global up to 59.99 ped is a '5 card', in the 60s is a '6 card', and so on. You can make pairs, 3 of a kind, straights, etc. Best hands, at the end of the event win the pot. Game starts on Saturday 3rd Oct and runs for 7 days until Friday 9th Oct.

The PEDS:
Free to enter, register here with your full avatar name. I will anti up 30peds per player and add 5peds for each global scored. 25/30 players would likely produce a pot bigger than 1000 PED. If this works out and I don't go bankrupt, we can probably follow up with a big money game.

3 places paid out of the pot, 60%, 25%, 15%. Draws are possible so prizes may be split. The Atrox Codex is worth progressing and, of course, there's all that delicious liver oil to look forward to...

The Venue: OLA39 is an extensive LA, well stocked with Atrox up to Old Alpha (some prowlers, maybe) & a few Neconu. It's a short distance SW of the Akmuul Island TP , easy to reach. It's no longer part of EntropiaGold - the name will change soon...



Details and Rules

IMPORTANT - You must make sure that your globals appear on Entropia Life - I have no other visibility.

1. To be a player, register on this thread with your full avatar name.
2. Solo players only.
3. Only globals logged by Entropia Life as being within OLA39 will be counted. Be careful not to stray outside the LA.
3. My decision is final.


Global.....................................Card

140.00 - 149.99 Ace
130.00 - 139.99 King
120.00 - 129.99 Queen
110.00 - 119.99 Jack
100.00 - 109.99 TEN
.
.
.
60.00 - 69.99 Six
50.00 - 59.99 Five

Making Hands

There are no flushes in this game.
If you get 2 globals in the 70s, then you have a pair of 7s.
If you get globals of 56, 61, 77, 83, and 95, then you have a 9 high straight. Straights must have 5 cards.
You do not need 5 cards to make a hand, if you only have only 2 globals in the 50s, then that counts as a pair of 5s. One global of 135 counts as a King high.
Globals over 149.99 don't count for the game. You got a nice global, just be happy with that :)

The hand precedence is not quite the same as poker since there are unlimited cards available in this game. Hands are ranked below, low to high.

High Card If you have no pairs or straight and your highest card is a King, then you have a King high. Ties can be broken by using up to 4 more cards.
Pair 2 cards of the same order. A pair of 9s beats a pair of 8s. Ties can be broken by using up to 3 more cards.
Set (3 of a kind) 3 cards of the same order. 3 Kings beats 3 Queens, etc. Ties can be broken by using fourth & fifth card.
2 Pairs QQ33 beats JJ99, 9988 beats 9977. Ties can be broken by using a fifth card.
4 of a kind KKKK beats QQQQ. Ties can be broken by using a fifth card.
Boat (Full House) 3 cards of one rank and 2 of another, TTT77 for example. In deciding precedence, the triplet counts first.
5 of a kind YES! You can get 5 aces.
Straight King high Straight beats a Ten high straight.

This event looks good!
So a 10-J-Q-K-A is possibly the highest right?
I kind of don't understand what " Straight King high Straight beats a Ten high straight. " this means..
Sorry not a huge fan of poker, I just know the basic rules..

Yes that's the best hand possible in this game. If two players get a straight then the highest card wins, so we describe straights in this way - Ten high straight is 6-7-8-9-10, Queen high straight is 8-9-T-J-Q.

I've been doing some hunting in the LA to see how it goes. In a one hour hunt today I got globals of 185, 52, 88, 67 and 108. Would only count as a Ten High hand, in the game, but possibilities of a straight. I'm using a daily token gun, 116dps no amp or enhancers.
