Monday's Forum Triple Takedown Competition

What's this then?

This is a long-standing competition which takes place every Monday, awarding prizes to the top finishers both on the night and across the month as a whole.

How do I enter?

There is no registration required, everyone who plays all 3 of the listed tournaments on the night is eligible for the weekly prizes. Do this 3 times within a calendar month, and you're also eligible for the monthly prizes.

The games are cheap, rake-free, and have a deep structure:

19.15 Forum Triple Takedown 1 is 5000 chip starting stack,12 min clock, buy-in £2-00
19.45 Forum Triple Takedown 2 is a 4000 chip starting stack,12 min clock, buy-in £2-00
20.15 Forum Triple Takedown 3 is a 3000 chip starting stack, 12 min clock, Bounty Hunter buy-in £2-00

How does the scoring work?

Your 2 best finishing positions are added together to determine your score on the night: if you placed 3rd in FTT1, 15th in FTT2, and 9th in FTT3, your score would be 3+9=12. The lower your score the better.

In the event of a tie, the player with the best finishing position in their set will place higher. If still equal, the third tournament score is used. In the unlikely event of all 3 scores matching, then we'll go to the number of entrants in the tournaments that accompany the scores, larger being better.

After the final Monday in the calendar month, a player's 3 best weekly scores are averaged to create the monthly score. Monthly ties will be separated similar to the above.

What can I win?

Weekly prizes:
1st - main event entry (£33 or £22)
2nd - mini major entry (£11)
3rd - a week's entry into all of the FTT games (£5)

Monthly prizes:
1st - any combination of MTTs (£5.50+) up to total value of £22
2nd - any combination of MTTs (£5.50+) up to total value of £11
3rd - a £5.50 MTT entry or a week's entry into all of the FTT games

How do I claim my prize?

In a change to how we've done things in the past, @Tikay10 will be helping by administering any prizes won. Results will be confirmed in this thread the day after the competition, and players must arrange with Tikay the games they will be entered for. Given this is a manual process, please give a day's notice where you can.

What else do I need to know?

I think that's it, but if anyone has any questions feel free to shout.

Thanks, good luck, and have fun.


Mike

    Here's Monday's (3th Jan) results:

    ...and they're off!

    Rumour has it that one of our entrants was celebrating a special birthday, and spent the evening kicking back (and crushing) the FTT competition - well done Peter @EBBERDON. @Tikay10 will arrange your present with you :smiley:

    A very close battle for second which went down to the competitor's third score. @ray01 edges it with @BEACHBABY first to exit in FTT2.

    Here's the final table with everyone who played all 3 tournaments this week:



    and so congratulations go to:

    1st @EBBERDON wins a main event entry (£33 or £22) of their choice
    2nd @ray01 wins entry to the Sunday mini-major (£11)
    3rd @BEACHBABY who wins entry to the FTT competition next week (£5)

    Thanks to everyone who played, see you next week.

    Thanks @bbMike.

    Just a reminder that the way the prizes are awarded has now changed.

    @EBBERDON (1st) just needs to let me know, on this thread, which Main Event he wishes to play, & I'll get him registered. At least 24 hours notice preferred please.

    @ray01 (2nd) will be automatically entered into this Sunday's Mini Major. (9th January).

    @BEACHBABY (3rd) will be automatically entered into next week's (10th January) FTT.

    @Summers119

    @bbmike will know better than me, but I'm pretty sure they have always been weekly as well as monthly. Given that these three MTT's are rake free, it's a stonking deal.
