    You guys are always boasting on how prettier your women are. I'm sure you'll be too busy sleeping with beautiful women to be playing poker.

    I think the American players are scared of the Europeans playing poker. Have you ever seen Phil Helmuth's reaction when he gets beaten by a 9 4 off suite double raise from a Euro?

    That is cue for those clowns from the soccer threads to enter and tells us about the obvious superiority of American poker players.

    In all seriousness, I avoid Scandinavians like the plague.

    OK.. I agree. what's the best time? 1PM EST whats that like 7PM in the UK?

    Since the tourneys are limited to 60 players we will give preference to any poster located outside of the Americas. Once all those who are outside of Eastern, Central, Mountain and Pacific have registered we can let anyone who wants to play at that time round out the 60 players. That way anyone outside the Americas could play at 1PM Eastern.

    So our new schedule will be 1PM, 8PM and 9PM all times Eastern.

    (PS - American players are certainly not scared of you Europeans...see you in Feb)

    Good job John. Europeans can have one tourney so they won't have to be up late and if it doesn't get filled some Americans who can play in the afternoon can always fill in.

    I've played in a few different countries and in my very humble opinion Americans are far far superior Holdem players. That may not last long. Americans are certainly famous for eventually getting beat at their own games as my near worthless GM bonds attest to.

    Yes. The plan is to give everyone outside of the Americas preference so all of them have a seat. That will probably leave about 25 open seats for anyone who wants to play at 1PM eastern.
