It's been a busy weekend, but at least this made me smile when it came in the mail today.
Anyhow, I haven't even had time to listen to the podcast and see what's on tap for AIPS VI, but whenever I can, deets will be posted. I'll figure out a way to update the sidebar pic too.
EDIT: Ok, finally listened in and hit the site - Cliffs for AIPS VI are:
*20 events, twice monthly through December, down from 24 events in AIPS V
3 NLHE tourneys and the HOSE event get cut.
PLO8 now LO8 (boooooooo)
2-7 Triple Draw now NL Single Draw
2 NLHE tourneys switched to PLHE and a half-and-half NLHE/PLO tourney
*Freeroll gone in place of a once-monthly $1.10 satellite to the $5.50 main tourneys.
*Schedule is really odd - as it's the sixth season, all tourneys are on days with a 6.
6th - Freerolls
16th, and 26th - Tournaments.
Now, the start times are the same (9pm Eastern on weekdays, Noon on weekends) but hopscotching the days around even more than last season should be an interesting experiment.
*ToC expanded to at least 48 players with tourney winners plus points leaders, sponsor exemptions and those who play most (18/20) of the events. Stars freeroll money will go to this prize pool instead.
*With some Blue Shark Optics sunglasses given to AIPS tourney winners, there's an over 4K overlay in the prize pool for the series.
Assuming you can remember when the tourneys are, it's worth mixing it up with these guys... I think for the most part these changes are for the good, and it's a credit to Chris and Scott that they've been able to run such a solid series, and built so much from the ground up with the whole Ante Up operation.
Go play already.
