AJ Masthay’s Print For The Phamily Poker Classic 3

Only a week and a half until the band steps on stage at Bangor to kick off their summer tour! If you’re going out to the Tahoe shows, and you like poker, check this out. Great cause, great print!


Via Phish.net:

Lake Tahoe is looking an awful lot like Gamehendge as Evil King Wilson plays his winning hand on this gorgeous new print created by master printmaker AJ Masthay for the upcoming Phamily Poker Classic 3 charity poker tournament. This 5-color linoleum block print was hand-crafted in an edition of 150, and the only way to get one is by joining the tournament at Harveys Lake Tahoe on July 31st. Held to benefit The Mockingbird Foundation, the Phamily Poker Classic 3 features a generous cash prize pool, great bonus prizes, and one of these stunning prints for each player.

Our plan is to give each player the print number that corresponds to their final position in the tourney. So, for example, if you bust out in 100th place, your print will be #100. But for those with the luck and skill to make the final table, we have something special. AJ has created a unique Final Table Variant of the print … an edition of only 10 … on a special wavy metallic paper that really pops. Check it out here! The only way you’re going to get one of these beauties is by making the final table, so get practicing your cards!

Seats are filling quickly for the Phamily Poker Classic 3, and once people feast their eyes on this print, we anticipate a quick sellout. Sign up today to reserve your print and seat in the Phamily Poker Classic 3, and we’ll see you in Tahoe!

Phamily Poker Classic 2013: Harvey’s Lake Tahoe

Phamily Poker

Here we go again!  We are extremely happy to announce the Phamily Poker Classic 3 to you first!
The Phamily Poker Classic 3 is once again a Texas Hold Em Event and will take place on July 31st at Harvey’s casino in Lake Tahoe.  This is the same casino that is hosting Phish’s July 30th & 31st shows. Seats at this Phamily Poker Classic tournament are very limited as it will be played only during the afternoon of the 31st.  As at the prior Classic tournaments, blinds and chip stacks will be structured so that nobody will miss a note of Phish.
This tournament will once again benefit our favorite charity The Mockingbird Foundation.  The entry fee will be $140 and at least half of that amount will go directly into the prize pool along with a slew of great non-cash prizes that will be raffled off throughout the tournament.  Every player in the Phamily Poker Classic 3 will receive a limited edition custom poster by AJ Masthay and the final table will get a special signed/numbered edition different from the rest in the number that they’re eliminated!  We anticipate a large number of exciting non-cash prizes to give away!  I’m sure you all remember the great prizes we’ve had in the past. The remainder of the buy in will go to the expenses for the tournament and for the donation to The Mockingbird Foundation.
In appreciation of you having participated in our past events we will be opening up the opportunity to purchase a seat in the Phamily Poker Classic 3 for you in a special pre-sale that will last until Wednesday April 10th, prior to the general on-sale at 10am pt (1:00pm et) on April 10th. The special pre-sale is open now.  You can purchase you seat here.  We hope that you’ll help us sell this event out, whether you can attend or not, by telling other fans out there how much you enjoyed the past tournaments.
We hope that you will join us again and make this event as special as the previous Phamily Poker Classic tournaments, which raised over $10,000 for The Mockingbird Foundation.  With your continued support, we can keep these events happening and support a great cause.
As always, we will keep you posted on any information that you need to know at www.phamilypokerclassic.com.  If you have any questions we can be reached at phamilypokerclassic@gmail.com.

Announcing the 2010 Phamily Poker Classic!

The Phamily Poker Classic is a No Limit Texas Hold-em event that is for the phans and taking place in Atlantic City in the afternoon of October 30th with the final table taking place in the afternoon of October 31st. The Phamily Poker Classic is a completely non profit event with a portion of the proceeds going to The Mockingbird Foundation and the rest to the prize pool along with other cool donated items. The Tropicana Hotel & Casino is being gracious enough to help us run this event and with their help, I know that this will be a great experience for all involved!

Every player in The Phamily Poker Classic will have an opportunity to win the Tournament Bad Beat Progressive Jackpot. As of 9/12 the jackpot is currently at $49,768. Full details and rules for the Tournament Bad Beat Jackpot can be found here.

Each table will have a bounty player. This player is playing for the benefit of The Mockingbird Foundation and a special prize will be given to the player who knocks a bounty player out of the tournament. If a bounty player knocks another bounty player out of the tournament, then the latter bounty player’s prize (or prizes) will be added to the former bounty player’s prize(s). In the off chance that a bounty player wins the Tournament, the prize(s) that that player has will be auctioned off following the final table. While you will win a non-cash prize if you bust out a bounty player, we anticipate that the number and quality of non-cash prizes you receive for doing so will depend on the stage at which you knock out that bounty player and what prize(s) are carried by that bounty player at the time of knockout.

Tournament tickets are $120 and are available for advanced purchase at Cardboard Spaceship. If there is a demand to expand the tournament; additional seats may be available. Do not count on purchasing tickets at the door as this event is likely to be sold out in advance at 100 players.
