Two important points here, so please take note!
1. Christmas Break
This year Champions Poker League will be handling the Christmas break differently to in previous years.
Previously we have had a two week break for all our venues during which we do not accept points. This has proven to be confusing for both players and TDs and therefore this year we will not be having any Christmas break at all.
For many venues, this may mean that one of your tournaments will fall on a holiday, be it Christmas day, new years eve etc. In this instance we recommend that players and the pub agree on a different night to run the tournament either leading up to the date or shortly after.
Which brings us neatly onto point 2...
2. End of season
The current season will end on the 26th of December, boxing day, and the next season (season 3) will start the very next day, December 27th.
Usually we give venues 4 days to enter results after the close of a season, but this time, due to the holiday season, we are extending that to 8 days, so points must be in by mid-day on Monday the 3rd of January.
What this means for you, our players, is that if you venue misses a game due to Christmas Eve, Christmas Day or Boxing day, you can hold a replacement game any time up until the 2nd of January, provided we receive the points by mid-day on the 3rd!
If your venue misses a game due to New years eve, don't worry as that will be a part of season 3 and you'll have a further 13 weeks to make up the lost game!
So if your venue plays on a Friday (Christmas Eve), Saturday (Christmas Day) or Sunday (Boxing Day) please discuss with your pub manager when to hold your replacement game!
