Both seeking reliable action, convenience of NSA poker thrills!

There’s a new Tom in town! (And this one has four bracelets, not just two.)

So we may or may not have gotten a little drunk one night … you know how it goes, a little joke, some playful touching, and suddenly somehow our friends at Face Up Gaming are now friends with benefits! The start-up social gaming online poker site will be giving Pokeratizens unprecedented insight into the process of building an online poker operation from the ground up — and we’re happy to have Face Up Gaming as our official online poker subscription site partner!

Read the announcement of our casual maybe sometimes sorta kinky in-bedness here.

So sign up with Face Up  and … well, um, uh …we’ll surely do something special for you! I do know there are lotsa prizes in play already at Face Up. Trips to Aruba, iPads galore, real cash … all up for grabs should you pony up for the US online poker equivalent of a Sam’s Club membership. (It’s the American way to play!)

Executive Instapokerer AlCantHang is big into it, too … I think primarily to make sure the executives don’t eff things up that the Face Up Gaming experience is the best online poker experience in the future of ever!

LOL, but seriously, it should be a great time. Hope to see some of you at the tables.

Blatant shill: @FaceUpGaming League play for real-$ action

by , Jun 1, 2012 | 2:18 pm

Face Up Gaming really wants to be the darling free/subscription site this WSOP, you can tell. This not-yet-gambling operation has been around for awhile, developing their live-interaction social-media-friendly software, and are finally busting it out in force to get players. In addition to paying a few shills* they’re starting to pay out winners, too, giving them a taste of real-money play.

* full-disclosure: including yours truly and legendary battle-of-bloggers king and new Pokerati power forward/gaffer AlCantHang.

Just this past week, Face-Up paid out some $50k in cash or cash-equivalent prizes (Supposedly Oklahoma Johnny Hale took second in one event) … I’m still figuring out how it all works, but I have slapped down my $25 to get a seat at various non-gambling tables that pay out real money. We’ve got Al’s blogger freeroll coming up, and I think I signed up for some CardPlayer Cruises. Face-Up’s next 8-week leagues start today.

There are two levels of qualifiers … one for a $30k prize pool where 35 percent of the players finish ITM, and another $20k prize pool with a more traditional Top 10 percent payout structure. Other events available include ladies qualifers into the LIPS Poker Queen Championship, WSOP Seniors event, and a Tom McEvoy training seminar (with live tourney part of it, I’m pretty sure).
