My $50 /r/poker freeroll had 191 players! The next one will be the same time tomorrow (on Wednesday)
This tournament is open to everyone regardless of jurisdiction. You don't need to register an account on the site in advance. I decided to run the tournament based on the positive responses to my thread from yesterday. The tournament ended up being MUCH more successful than I imagined, with 191 players participating. I confirmed with BlockchainPoker that this was the most players of any tournament in the site's history. Congratulations to user bonecall for taking first place! Here's a replay of the final hand of the tournament: https://blockchain.poke#/history?hand=8b2bf59ec5143a454c030383a66fc8cb To keep the momentum going, I'm organizing another tournament for the same time today. By popular demand, I've also created a second tournament for 7PM GMT so our friends in Europe can easily join in. There will be TWO tournaments today, 7 hours apart. First Tournament: Time: Wednesday March 18 (TODAY), 7pm GMT (12pm PDT, 3pm EDT) Buy-in: Free Prize pool: 0.25 BCH, currently $45 Password: quarantine Link:https://blockchain.poker?tournament=8778 Second Tournament (same time as yesterday): Time: Wednesday March 18 (TODAY), 7pm PDT, 10pm EDT Buy-in: Free Prize pool: 0.25 BCH, currently $45 Password: quarantine (yes, same password for both) Link:https://blockchain.poker?tournament=8776 Note that if you bust, up to 3 rebuys are allowed within the first 30 minutes of the tournament. A rebuy into a freeroll on this site costs 1/50th of the prize purse, or in this case 0.005 BCH (~$1). The blind structure on these tournaments is pretty fast. Yesterday's tournament lasted for about 90 minutes. The site has not yet implemented custom blind structures so be aware that it's a pretty fast tournament. Some people have offered to contribute to future prize pools, and I'm also talking with some Bitcoin-related companies who are interested in sponsoring more prize purses (meaning their logo would be on the table felt), so I'm hoping I can keep these freerolls as a regular thing for a while.

Why you should play for bitcoins only and on bitcoin-only sites
This is long, but it is important, it is about MONEY. Read it carefully, if you want to know a little bit about why you don't have as much of it as you should !! Hi, greetings everyone, I am the person who is responsible for more bitcoin-only poker action than anyone else in the world. I've been playing these sites for years now, and immediately told everyone I knew, back when bitcoins were $2, to buy them so we could all play poker with them. The fact is, the money and the store of value of bitcoin is much superior to dollars. Bitcoin is a decentralized, digital currency that anyone with internet access can acquire. You can purchase bitcoins from various exchanges and keep them stored on your computer or online. To illustrate this concept, consider that the minimum wage in 1976 was $1.25 and could be paid as 5 silver quarters. Today, the melt value of those 5 silver quarters is actually more than $15, so minimum wage has actually gone DOWN. This is because inflation, which FUCKS the little guy, who doesn't have a lot of money, in favor of the big cheese's who can afford to store their value in expensive things like rare art, large quantities of precious metals, and land. These are the things the wealthy have always used to store their money long-term, to avoid the inevitable drain of inflation. However, there is now this other thing, cryptocurrency. You can store your money and it will INCREASE in value over time, if you save it, which makes a lot more sense to me! 2k in the bank is worth like 1900 effectively in a year, but 2k in bitcoins in a year will likely be worth 3k+. It only makes sense to store at least some money in bitcoins, you wouldn't go allin on any investment, so why be allin on US dollars as a currency? Now, I started spreading the word about playing for bitcoins in 2012, but very few people heard me. Today, almost every major site accepts bitcoins as a deposit method. However, they virtually all keep your balance in USD, which as I've mentioned, goes DOWN in value over time, versus UP, so that's bad. They also screw you on the exchange rate, both depositing and withdrawing. Fuck that. There are 3 sites I play on, they all keep your balance in BTC, so if you win a BTC and it goes up to 3k tomorrow, you're now up 3k. Much better than the alternative of playing on USD based sites !! Swc Poker has freerolls you can get your feet wet in. Also very small stakes tournaments where you can get a lot of experience for a short fee. It also has rare game mixes such as 8 game, 12 game mix, with all the draw games like badugi and badeucy, and it has open face chinese pinapple as well. These games are offered on virtually no other US-facing sites !! Nitrogen Sports is one of the best sites out there for gambling, the best sports book in the world in my opinion, and they have a poker room that gets decent traffic and action from fun players who are there for betting sports !! Betcoin dot ag is cool too, it shares tournaments with other major networks, so you get a ton of fun tournaments to play with massive fields, which doesn't happen on these other networks. If you like MTTs, definitely check out this site, and they pay you the tourney winnings in bitcoin, so if you win 100k, it might be worth 200k in a few months !! If I were you, I'd look into using bitcoin to play on these sites. If you're a winning poker player, it will be good for you, and if you're a recreational player, you will likely benefit from this as well. If anyone is in vegas right now, and has questions, I'd be happy to meet up, please PM me and we can set up a meeting. I will exchange BTC for USD, or USD for BTC, both at market rates, I simply want to provide liquidity to poker players who use BTC, so I am happy to do this.
