START A TEAM - OWN A CLUB

START a TEAM & OWN the CLUB - Anyone can Start a Team and Own a Poker Club. The start of any team is also the start of a club. A club can consist to any number of potential teams, and players can move from one team to another within a club at will for new event entries, but can play on only one team per event. Players can belong to only one club at a time. When the NO-CONTACT RULE (the game option does not allow club/teammates to play on the same Ranking Game at the same time) for Seating Protocol is used in an Event it applies to all Club Members. By protocol the No-Contact Rule takes precedence over the FULL-CONTACT RULE in overlaying Ranking Events. The individual who starts a club is the club owner, and owns all rights to the club and its teams. The owner can delegate club administration and management, but they are ultimately responsible for all club actions.

RANKING GAMES

PLAY NOW: The RANKING GAME is used to rank both Individuals and Teams. Ranking Games are the same as what is known as a “Sit-&-Goes (S&G) in the poker industry. A S&G is a single table tournament. Registered Players can create or join a Ranking Game and there are some options for the speed of the game, but the Ranking Game doesn’t start until there are ten (10) registered players. Players can play the RANKING GAMES for FREE and top ranked monthly players FREE ROLL into the STAR CLUB™. The RANKING EVENTS (are a number of Ranking Games over a period of time) also use the Ranking Game to establish the Individual and Team rank, finish position, and point scoring for event prize pool award. Ranking Events can overlay each other and the same Ranking Game can be used for more than one event, and Individuals can be playing for different event rank within the same Ranking Game. The “No-Contact Rule” (teammates can not play on the same table with other players) is used for event seating protocol for subscription, cash and other serious events. The No-Contact Rule takes presidency over any “Full-Contact” seating protocol events where teammates can play on the same table.

INDIVIDUAL RANK

START GETTING RANKED NOW FOR FREE: Poker and TEAM POKER® is about and starts with Individual performance. Team events are just the composite of Individuals Finish Positions (Team Scoring). The majority of RANKING EVENTS offer INDIVIDUAL RANK, and an Individual Prize Pool. RANKING EVENTS can be for Individuals only, both Individuals and Teams, or just for Teams. Because the TEAM POKER® HANDICAP allows team size to vary some smaller team structures can consist of Individuals only, and all Monthly Team Poker® Open Events offer Individual FREE ROLL potential along with Teams. Team play is comprised of Individual performance. There is always a place for Individuals in TEAM POKER® (TP). The TP NO-CONTACT RULE makes it impossible for Club Teammates to collude … as they cannot be on the same table with opponents on the table.

RANKING EVENTS

PLAY NOW FOR FREE: RANKING EVENTS are the backbone of TeamPoker®com (TP) competition. They consist of a number of RANKING GAMES played over a predetermined and defined period of time, resulting in Individual and Team Scoring and Finish Positions. RANKING EVENTS overlay each other in the RANKING GAMES. Individuals in a Ranking Game can be playing for various events and League Rank at the same time. Individuals and Teams are able to compete in various Leagues in RANKING EVENTS including: FUNDRAISING, CLASS LEAGUES (e.g. Country, Military, University, etc.), CLUB & TEAM, the STAR CLUB™, and WORLD TEAM POKER® CHAMPIONSHIP (WTPC), along with other Local, National, and World Events. The RANKING EVENTS can be run under two seating protocols: 1) No-Contact (for cash and other more serious play where Directors want to eliminate the potential of collusion) where teammates are not allowed on the same table; and, 2) Full-Contact (for fun and Class Events) where teammates are allowed on the same table. Users can join TEAM POKER® RANKING EVENTS, or they can create their own RANKING EVENTS in the TP Event Manager in the TP Controller.

CLASS, CLUB & TEAM RANK

START OR JOIN A TEAM FOR FREE AND GET RANKED: The start of any team is also the start of a club. Besides Individuals, Fundraising Teams, Class Teams, Clubs, and “Teams" (Teams are subsets of Clubs) are Ranked in the various Leagues in TEAM POKER® EVENTS. Individuals can belong to only one Club at a time, but can play for more then one team in the club if participating in different events. Using the patented method, teams of any size are possible. Teams can be required to be of equal size, or the event structure can allow teams of varying sizes using the TEAM POKER® (TP) HANDICAP (Any team size is potentially possible). An Individual can even be allowed to play and compete as a Team for scoring purposes. Individuals and smaller teams, can use their skill and the TP HANDICAP, which equalizes their finish position relative to teams of larger size, to fight for the team prize pool (An Individuals scoring as a team is typically only in smaller team events[e.g. 1-2 players). Poker Skills become more of a factor with the composite scoring of individuals in teams (team scoring), and the TP HANDICAP makes skill even more of a factor by allowing smaller team sizes to compete against larger teams (leveling the playing field). In TEAM RANKING EVENTS, as it is for all STAR CLUB™ Subscription Events, the TP NO-CONTACT SEATING PROTOCOL RULE can be required so there is never a chance of collusion among teammates.

TEAM POKER®

POKER IS NOW A TEAM SPORT … through the “teamification of poker” that the patented TEAM POKER® process provides. However, TEAM POKER® like all poker, starts with the INDIVIDUAL. The patented process enhances the performance and skill of the INDIVIDUAL in poker and adds new and exciting dimensions to poker that have not existed until now. Individuals can now join and play together in TEAMS to try and maximize their individual skills & finish positions for team rank, team finish positions, and team prize pool award in tournament events. The patented system consists of three essential elements for team play. The elements start and evolve around the Individual Finish Positions in tournament events. The objective of TEAM POKER® is to enhance Individual play, importance of skill, and create the comradery and synergism that only teams offer. The team events typically have two prize pools: one for Individual finishes; and, a second for Teams. TeamPoker.com can create any and all types of events, and User administrators can also structure Free, Fundraising and TiP, Individual and Team events in their users EVENT MANAGER with options of structure and scoring elements: 1) TEAM SCORING: The patented system creates Team Scoring by allowing a composite score of Individuals for Team results. Teams form in accordance with the event structure, play the required number of RANKED GAMES and IFPs are added together and averaged by teams (composite scores) to determine team finish positions. 2) SEATING PROTOCOL: Tournament Event Administrators have two options for their event seating protocols: 1) Full-Contact among teammates and opponents; and, 2) No-Contact among teammates with opponents on the same tables. 3) TEAM POKER® HANDICAP: Using the TP HANDICAP, Poker Team sizes are able to vary within the same events. Any size teams are possible, creating another unique and truly new paradigm in gaming.

EVENT MANAGER

RUN YOUR OWN EVENTS FOR FREE: You are the Event Administrator, if you want: Run your own Ranking Event and Challenge other Individuals, Clubs, and Teams as part of the TEAM POKER® CHALLENGE - SERIES. Set your own structures (name, date, time period, prize pool overlays and add-ons, etc.), event entry fees (Fundraising Campaigns, TiP$ or Free), and advertise your event. All events are run in RANKED GAMES and can be run as Full-Contact (teammates allowed to play on the same table); or, No-Contact/ TEAM POKER® PRO Seating Protocol (club teammates not allowed to play on the same table). Or, Individuals and Teams can just join TEAM POKER® RANKING EVENTS. However; whether or not users play in User Administered Events, or Team Poker® Events, the Individuals’ and Teams’ Event Rank provides the opportunity to FREE ROLL to Large Prize Pools.

The Controller allows the users to access their game events and site options including the EVENT MANAGER, Wallets, Profile, Club, and other information, some of which (e.g. Rank, Event Schedule, among other things) can be displayed in the Video Display.

EVENT OVERLAY

The TEAM POKER® RANKING EVENT Process allows events to overlay each other in poker rooms. Administrators can create events in the TEAM POKER® ROOM and users can enter any number of these overlaying events that they qualify for. The Individual Finish Positions in any particular event can be used in as many events as applicable that the Individuals are entered, to rank Individuals and their Teams.

FOUR GAME TYPES

PLAY NOW: Users can create or join one of the four (4) game types that are available, and are identified by these four symbols and the optional Lock feature on Standard Games (triangle) and Registered Players (pencil on paper) only games. The PRIVATE POKER TABLE™ (player with +) and the RANKING GAMES (TP Trophy) round out the 4 player game options. The RANKING GAMES are the backbone of the Team Poker® RANKING EVENTS and Individual and Team Ranking in general.

DIRECT PAYMENTS

THE FUNDRAISING TOOL™ by TEAM POKER® is used for fundraising entities to raise funds for their cause and start a campaign to have fun raising funds. All Fundraising Entities: Sports Teams, Charities, and any Club raising funds (USA Requirement of 501c3 status) are offered FREE Listings in the TEAM POKER® RED PAGES™ where they can identify their fundraising campaign. Fundraisers can us a Crowdfunding Campaign or preferably just list their DIRECT PAYMENT method in the listing.

CLASS TEAMS

A CLASS TEAM is any set of Individuals, Clubs, or Teams that form to compete as a group together in a TEAM POKER® CHALLENGE - CLASS LEAGUE EVENT or SERIES. These events are played against other Class Team. Class Teams are distinct from Clubs in that users can belong to as many Class Teams they want, and that they “qualify for”. Qualifying for Class Teams means only that an Individual fits the definition of a Class Team (e.g. Men versus Women as Class Teams is a good example; or, a graduate, sponsor, or person associated with a University versus other Universities). Individuals can belong to only one CLUB TEAM. However, Individuals can participate in Class Events without being a member of a club. Club-Teams also can compete in the CLASS LEAGUE SERIES in the CLUB-TEAM DIVISIONS of any CLASS. Examples of Class Teams help explain and define what Class Teams are: Cities, States, Regions, Countries, Schools, Military Branches, etc. Any “group set” is possible to be a CLASS, and TEAM POKER® will adjust to the demands of the users to add or delete CLASS SETS for competition, fun, bragging rights, and prize pool awards.

FULL-CONTACT SEATING PROTOCOL

FULL CONTACT – TEAM POKER® (TP) SEATING PROTOCOL allows teammates to play on the same table. Like a “Rugby Scrum” the FULL CONTACT SEATING PROTOCOL allows teams and teammates to play poker “head to head” on the same tables with fellow teammates. FULL CONTACT is used in RANKING EVENTS that are for fun, bragging rights, and TiP$. The converse to the Full-Contact Seating Protocol is NO CONTACT – PRO SEATING PROTOCOL (teammates are not allowed on the same table) and it is used for subscription and other TiP, or prize pool events by administrators/ creators choice in the EVENT MANAGER. Since teammates are known and identified in either seating protocol, FULL or NO CONTACT, by definition collusion is not a factor, and collusion is not possible in the NO-CONTACT TP SEATING PROTOCOL.

NO-CONTACT SEATING PROTOCOL

The NO-CONTACT TEAM POKER® - TP PRO - SEATING PROTOCOL does not allow teammates to play on the same poker table until they are playing heads-up, or they are the only players left in the tournament event. There is no possibility of collusion as teams, and teammates are known, identified, and never allowed on the same table with opponents. The randomness in seating is adjusted, and mandated so teammates are never allowed to play together on the same table with opponents. When the NO-CONTACT RULE is in effect in a RANKING EVENT, and a teammate tries to enter a RANKING GAME, where a teammate is already seated, they will receive a message letting them know that a teammate is already seated, and they must join another Ranking Table.

TEAM HANDICAP

The patented TEAM POKER® (TP) HANDICAP system allows teams of any size to play against other teams of any size. Poker skill is more of a factor in TEAM POKER®, and skill can become even more of a factor when the TP HANDICAP is used. The TP HANDICAP levels the playing field, and provides comparative scoring of various sized teams to determine team finish position. Event Administrators creating TEAM POKER® CHALLENGE Events can structure their events to allow teams size to be within a range of players are mandate teams must be the same size. Also, the flexibility of the TEAM POKER® HANDICAP can make it easier to form teams and compete in RANKING EVENTS.

MILESTONES & RECORDS

MILESTONES & RECORDS are maintained for Individuals and Teams, by Leagues and Divisions. The highest ranking Individuals and Teams in the Team Poker® Open League earn a FREE ROLL into SATELLITES for the STAR CLUB™, or directly into STAR CLUB™, and the potential of large prize pool award. All Individuals are ranked in RANKING GAMES and besides the RANKING EVENTS the ranks are used to identify performance over time and track Milestones and Records. Milestones and Records will be an evolving process for several reasons and TEAM POKER® will focus on developing the most effective way of measuring both Individuals’ and Teams’ poker playing abilities and milestones reached.

WORLD TEAM POKER® CHAMPIONSHIP™

The WORLD TEAM POKER® CHAMPIONSHIP (WTPC) is the Individual and Team League Poker Series World Playoffs (including various: Open, Class, Club, and STAR CLUB™ Leagues) that lead to the World Championships. These League WTPC Series are started with SATELLITE and LET IT RIDE™ EVENTS that lead to the Individual and Team WTPC and Large Prize Pools.
