Maybe it's not sabbac, but...

    Boston Rebel here, newcomer to this forum.

    We all know that Star Wars has a game called sabbac, but I've seen at least a couple of different descriptions of the game in the EU, so coming up w/ a good simulation of the game would be tough. However, we do know that sabbac is supposed to be Star Wars' idea of a poker game. Which got me to thinking...poker is quite popular these days, so why not see who in FanForce would make the best Han Solo or Lando Calrissian?

    I'd like to explore ways of having a FanForce poker tournament online. If there's interest, I could see if Poker Stars or Party Poker (or some other online poker site) can help us set up a tournament. I'd like to keep it free to enter, which would likely mean allowing the tournament host to show ads to everyone while we play. The game will be No-Limit Texas Hold 'Em (the game most often shown on TV), which is relatively easy to learn.

    CRs who wish to help determine interest should point the discussion to this thread.

    TIA for your consideration.

    You might want to change the title of this thread to get a better showing.

    You can usually play for free at any of these poker sites, Kyle. It's the stuff like satellite tournaments (such as the ones Chris Moneymaker and Greg "Fossil Man" Raymer entered to get into the World Series of Poker when they won it) that require money.

    Awesome. Poker has been huge in my area, and I'm one of the few kids who don't know how to play well. I just started learning it last weekend..

    I've actually started having second thoughts about it. It's not going to be easy to get people on both coasts together at the same time for a tournament. And I might only have a couple of hours at a time to play.
