PokerPalz will be using an advanced trial version of their live tournament blogging software all weekend at the IrishEyesBet.com Legends Cup taking place at the Citywest Conference Centre from Thursday May 23rd. The blogging software is designed to give both player and railbird accurate updates of the tournament including who remains and how healthy they are at a glance. There is a live Twitter feed incorporated into the blog so players and non PokerPalz members can send and view quick updates via the Twitter #pplzlegends hashtag.
There is also a private comment field that allows PokerPalz members to upload and view content that is not for general viewing.
Live tournament blogging, giving players and their supporters the ability to interact with and update the blog is one of PokerPalz key goals as everyone of us has been frustrated at one time or another by not being able to find recent updates for the players we are most interested in. The privacy element is also very important to PokerPalz and players, so members have the option to post in a private comment feed on the live blog that is only visible and searchable to members.
To celebrate the launch of this blogging software, PokerPalz and Irish Eyes will be adding money to a members only last longest wager which will run across the weekend. New and existing members can opt in to this last longest wager up to the end of level 2 on Day 2. PokerPalz members can participate in the last longest for €10 with all monies collected from players going to the ultimate winner of the last longest bet. PLUS PokerPalz and Irish Eyes will add €150 (total) to the last longest wager making the prize a nice added value bet.
A little about the event: The Legends Poker cup is a very unique event where a player can play any number of the four available day 1’s. Starting Thursday May 23rd at 19.00 and the last Day 1 will run on Saturday May 25th at 10am. Main event Day 2 begins that Saturday evening at 19.00 and Day 3 plays from 13.00 on Sunday May 26th until a winner is declared. The structure allows everyone to “take a shot” at a single Day 1 and rebuy into a second if they feel there is value there for them. Indeed you do not have to bust out of a Day 1 to play a second Day 1 and some players will play all four Day 1’s as the chips accumulated in all Day 1’s are carried forward to Day 2 so a player could potentially amass a good Day 2 starting stack by playing all four Day 1’s giving them a significant advantage going in to Day 2.
Full details can be seen at the links below and there are some important things to note here:
