Challenge #9: What You Have All Been Waiting For!
Yes, it is finally time for the POKER challenge. The poker game will begin on Tuesday at 8:30pm EST. We would like anyone who is playing to be registered by 8:00pm EST!
We are posting this challenge early so that all participants can download the software and make sure that it works. In the past, Survivor has used NoPayPoker…I tried to update today and my Norton antivirus said that it was unsafe. I ignored the warning and pop-up adds were appearing everywhere. My account also had zero dollars, so I needed to “earn” more money by subscribing to websites.
So this season, we are using a different website…www.pokerstars.net. Ghutton and I tested the software yesterday, and everything worked perfectly! The instructions are below:
You are invited to join my private poker club for Home Games online
- If you don't already have it, download the free PokerStars software from www.pokerstars.net
- Open the main poker lobby, then click on the Home Games tab
- Click the 'Join a Poker Club' button
- Enter my Club ID number: 753122
- Enter my Invitation Code: bcsmidmajor
The winner of The Masters challenge will be allowed to have 4 members in the poker game, while the losing tribe will receive 3 entries. Wait, that’s only 7 poker players…so who else will be at the table? Well, it will be none other than your Survivor XII hosts…Ghutton9 and Horvie78! We know that some of you would love to kick our a**, so here is your chance!
We ask that each tribe by former determine who will be playing and register for the PokerStars “Home Game” group ASAP. Also, we suggest that each tribe register an alternate member to our “Home Game” group, just in case something comes up. Captains must sitemail survivorxii with their list of players (and an alternate) by Tuesday at 7pm EST.
The Survivor XII contestant who lasts the longest will earn their tribe immunity. The other tribe will vote to send a member to Redemption Island. If the winning Survivor XII contestant also outlasts Ghutton and Horvie, their tribe will receive an advantage in the next challenge.
