    I have recently set up a private table on a well-known poker site which allows some friends to have a private game at any time.

    Wondered if anyone would be interested in doing the same thing via TRF?

    Sounds good, how do you set up private tables?

    Excellent idea Mr Smith, I’d definitely be up for that.

    Personally I play mainly on the Stan James site as i like the layout more than most – anyone with an account can create a private table there which can be tailored to suit stakes – this table is then password protected.

    I play Ladbrokes mostly and I know they allow the setting up of private MTT’s, with rebuy options for a selected period.

    Do Stan James Smithy or are the private tourneys STT only ?

    It looks like you’ll get a decent response hopefully so a MTT looks to be the only option.

    Ladbrokes & Stan James are the same software.

    You should be able to enter the game through either site.

    Lee,

    The table I have is a cash table so I don’t know about creating your own MTT – if that was an option, I would be more than happy to get involved though.

    It takes less than 5 minutes to set one up.

    In no particular order: –

    Give the table a name.

    Select, STT or MTT with a maximum no. of entrants.

    Pick the no. of chips, e.g. 1500.

    Select the buy-in (which automatically calculates the rake).

    Choose whether freezout or re-buy (in which case you select the period I think – although haven’t set one of these up).

    Select the prizemoney split, e.g. 50%, 30%, 20%.

    I Also think you can select the blind increase period.

    Give the table a password, which could be P.M’d on here to anybody interested (also informing of a start time).

    That’s just about it.

    I have got us our own perminent table which I want to intergrate into the forum so it’s a part of the site like the chat room where we can play whatever we want, when we want & whatever stakes we want, so it just a question of what shall we set-up.

    I think to start us off a nice gentle Multi-Table-Tournament (as we are unsure of numbers), start with a small $5 (US I’m afraid like most are) & have one on a Friday & Tuesday??  What time?? 8pm?  Only suggestions but we have to start somewhere, is this convenient for everyone or what’s your preference?

    Sounds good to me DL.

    Tend to play live a lot of Fridays (including this one) but shall make it when I can.

    Tuesdays sounds perfect though.

    Bit confused though – Are you saying we’ll play by logging onto TRF or will that just be a means for communicating the set-up of a game ?
