This thread is to contain:
- the rules,
- tournament-wide discussion,
- rule modifications, and
- tournament status updates.
Addtionally, this thread is meant to be the repository of various in-game activities, including listing the tables at which players are playing, and to contain all "tournament-wide" discussion (be it conversation of interest to all participants, to rule modification announcements, to "interesting hand alerts" at your table).
Additions/modifications/clarifications to the rules will be noted with a time/date stamp.
Please post in this thread if you have any questions. If you're curious about some of the mechanics at work, chances are that you're not alone, so other's would likely want to see your Q's and my A's.
The Meal is your Tournament Director, and as such his powers are boundless. If down the road I decide to divvy up my duties, I'll make explicit the powers I've granted.
