20 SBD Weekly Freeroll on @SPL
Dear Steemians, as you may know, @adsactly supports different projects which are connected to the Steem blockchain, being on the chain or off the chain. One project that we will support from now on is @spl with a weekly freeroll starting on Monday, the 14th of May, 23:00 UTC (18:00 CST).
Poker is a game that was developed in the USA sometime in the 19th century. It is a descendant of the Persian game As-Nas which has almost the same rules as poker without having the sequences or flushes. As-Nas has been forgotten as poker took over the world.
In the past 50 years, poker has become a global phenomenon due to the start of online games and the world series. For winning a tournament one has to have a good skillset of mathematics, psychology, and patience. Luck might be needed short term but if you play the game right, and by right I mean mathematical and psychological the statistical pattern will show a winning percentage. All dealt hands have a statistical winning chance. It is up to the player which choice he makes. Naturally, if you play a hand that has an 88% chance to win from the start on the long run you will see that you will have won more than 80% (depending on the choices) of the hands dealt with it. Also, a hand that has a 12% chance of winning shall not be played that often. Psychology is also important because you need to know how to read the other players and to act accordingly.
@spl is the account for the Steem Poker League. What is the Steem Poker League? It is a Steem Project which has been started by @tuck-fheman, one of the Steem veterans. He built up the site lucksacks, where the games are hosted. It is tied to the Steem blockchain, so you need to have an account on Steem to be able to play on lucksacks.
The site has grown in less than one year to over 1000 accounts, 1010 at the time of writing. This is from the over 10000 applications received. All applications are thoroughly reviewed by the @spl team. This is why @spl has managed to keep a high quality level. To be able to play one must to have a certain reputation on Steem platforms and also has to have a verified account with an introduction post. This is a common sense requirement so that @spl is kept clean and the community shall thrive.
The list of the daily tournaments appear on the page, so that the users can plan in which to take part. The screenshot shows the tournaments for the 13th of May.
The project is not built for profit, but rather for establishing a community of players who are active on Steem platforms. Also, no one can deposit money on it because it is not a gambling site where people can lose money. This is very important and this is why @adsactly supports it. It is not a platform where you can get ripped off. You can earn SBD which you can use for different tournaments, but you can't deposit. You can build up a bankroll only by playing freerolls like the one @adsactly is sponsoring.
To access the tournament, first, go to the lobby where you can see the tournaments section. Set to arrange it by the time of the tournament and then you will have to scroll down till you find the @adsactly tournament.
Registration is open 90 minutes before the start of the tournament. The structure can be read on the tournament info section. The tournament is a No Limit Hold'em type of play, open for 180 players with a minimum 18 players needed for registration. The blinds increase every 10 minutes with a 7 minutes break after every 5 blind increases. Each player has 30 seconds for each turn with a time bank of 60 seconds for longer thinking choices. At each table there are 9 players.
