    SBR World Poker Cup 2018

    SBR World Poker Cup 2018

    USA vs Confederates vs Canada vs World


    How to make a team



    • Rank in the top 12 for points won during SBR Poker tournament play Mon-Fri from April 23rd to August 1st.
    • Twelve slots will be assigned for each region. Leader boards will be posted with standings by country. Confederates refers to 12 US members who do not qualify for Team US.




    Team Match Schedule (August 6th to August 9th)



    • Twelve tournaments per day from 12:00PM-11:00PM ET.
    • Four players per tournament (1 player from each region).




    Scoring details
    Each tournament will award 2 points for the winning team, and 1 point for the runner-ups team. Co-champions will be crowned in the event of a tie with an equal division of the pot. A leader board will be maintained in Players Talk showing how many points each team has.

    Prize-pool
    Winning team: 10,000 betpoints per person
    Runner-up: 5,000 poker pts per person
    3rd place: 3,000 poker pts per person
    4th place: 1,500 poker pts per person

    Fine-print



    1. Must be an SBR Pro to represent a team.
    2. Users banned during the qualification period may lose their right to make a team at SBR's discretion.
    3. One entry per household.
    4. Tiebreaker will be SBRforum join date during qualification period. If contestants joined the same day, # of cashes will be used. If # of cashes is tied, # of points won will be used.
    5. It will be the responsibility of each team to decide which player will represent them per tourney. Players may compete in only one tournament per day. Players may not share the password with players that have not qualified under any circumstance - no points will be counted for that region. Events will be PW protected & player usernames altered to include region.

    Well guess it's back! Can't say it was what I was hoping for, but obviously nice to have a promotion of any kind. Am I correct in assuming the structure of the dailies will stay the same as it has been for the last few months?

    badges? badges? we don't need no stinkin' badges!!!!




    who needs badges when we still have the "_confeds" suffix behind our poker screennames?

    I take it we're already on the team!!!!

    Team Confeds keeps its twelve members while the promo qualifies only teams usa, world, and canada.....

    we earned the chance to defend our title!

    Wow, real original. This shit again? 4 months of playing for only 24 USA spots? The fuk'ing worst disadvantage for USA players and the best for overseas guys. Colossal waste of time with this bullshit format. Enjoy, broke dik fuks who got no life.

    That’s why this is a garbage event whether my posts are edited or not. 90% of SBR Poker is fighting for 24 spots. Last year the canucks were actually competitive but every other year since I’ve been around one daily win got the Canadians on a team.

    It it would be nice if for once the RSH didn’t piss on our leg and tell us it’s raining, just come clean and say we’re recycling a tired event to save points. We’ll all understand and I guarantee the complaining would not be nearly as loud.

    lets not forget the 50% cut in daily touney pts AND the payouts for winning this WC are LESS than last year

    Yeah, Downsouth had some good ideas on how to improve this shit. Whatever happened to him? Is he still around, never see the dude post anymore. Well good luck mpas, although you probably wont need it, they like you bro at the rigged shithole. Damn if I'll waste my time on this shit. I get more fuk'in bad beats here, than at Bovada, and that shit hole is rigged too, but at least I can win there occasionally.

    I can only play my 2 days off per week, wish SBR would give you a max amount you can play per week 5 instead of 1 per day. It would be giving people that couldn't play everyday a fair chance , I could just use my 5 per week on my days off.

    What we should be doing is having weekly and monthly tournaments with 100 to 200 point entry fees with some type of overlay by SBR. And then the top points leaders after 3 months could battle it out in a championship. Fuk this stupid 4 months shit to qualify for peanuts and 24 spots, only to be bubbled out by a bad run in the last 2 weeks. It's a joke, just like this old fuk'in outdate software!

    Autodonk, you seem a little too proud of not being good enough to make team USA. Let me guess -- you're gonna intentionally suck so that you make Confeds again? You're great at that. I believe in you.
