2nd QUARTER ACCOMPLISHMENTS BRING 3rd QUARTER IMPROVEMENTS
2nd QUARTER ACCOMPLISHMENTS -
Back in March, while discussing the concept of a 2nd tiered league, there was a major concern that we would not be able to populate it with even 10-20 new members. So how could we even think of “stealing” members from such a small new league by advancing its players to the larger Golden Donks League? To alleviate the potential problem, it was decided that each quarter we would only advance 6 Foals to become Donks, and we would replenish the Grey Foals League by “demoting” some Donks from the bottom of the leaderboard. That’s when our senior Donks went into action. They went on a recruiting crusade by talking up the league with their qualified RP friends who had a ranking of better than 2000. Also, while at the RP tables, they encouraged good quality players to join our leagues. Thanks to these senior Donks, we went from having a Foals league with zero members on April 1 to having an exciting and thriving league like we have today consisting of 52 extremely talented poker players!
3rd QUARTER IMPROVEMENTS -
Improvement #1 -
Our increased level of recruiting means that there is no longer a concern about an under-populated league. For this reason, effective immediately, there will be no “demoting” of Donks to the Grey Foals League. This policy will continue as long as we have more Foals than Donks at the end of each quarter.
Improvement #2
At the end of the 3rd quarter, we will be advancing 8 Foals (instead of just 6), to the Golden Donks League as follows:

  1. The 3 who finish at the top of the Sunday leaderboard
  2. The 3 who finish at the top of the Wednesday leaderboard
  3. The 2 who accumulate the most carrots on both leaderboards

Improvement #3 -
We feel that there were way too many Donks and Foals who got mathematically eliminated weeks before the end of the quarter. Moving forward, we want to keep more members in the hunt by intensifying the late competition. So for the final tournament of the quarter on 9/25/19 and 9/29/19, we will have 150% Carrot Tournaments. This means that we’ll be multiplying the carrot formula by 150% for the final tournament of the quarter. This is HUGE and could mean the ability to gain as much as 40,000 carrots on the leader in the final week of our quarterly competition!
We want to keep this league momentum going, so lets continue this outstanding level of recruiting and participating:

  1. Recruiting means getting RP players to send a friend request. It means messaging qualified friends to send a friend request. It means chatting with qualified opponents at the tables to send a friend request. Qualified means that they are ranked better than 2000. Afterwards, we will vette them on the Forum to be sure they are worthy of competing in the Foals League. Simply have them do a search for “Badonkidonk” and click on “ADD AS A FRIEND”. You can leave the rest to us. Or you can simply send them here:
    **THE ONLY WAY TO PLAY WITH THE DONKS**
  2. Participating simply means continuing to have fun with us at 7pm ET on Sunday and 9pm ET on Wednesday. On the final tournament of the quarter, we had 48 total registrants! That;s outstanding!!! All we ask is that you continue to participate in at least half of one of our weekly tournaments. We are offering 26 tournaments this quarter. That’s 13 on Sundays and 13 on Wednesdays. Try to break away from the stress of your lives at least 7 times in the next 90 days and enjoy the competition.

To all my friends and foes (you are all both…just at different times) good luck in the 3rd quarter!
With apologies for the lengthy but important post,

I very much like it, as a matter of fact, I think you (or I) should have replay staff pay attention to what is going on here & try to incorporate it into there own site, As an event or regular tourney. Possibly with different prizes or maybe purchasing points (carrots) for memorabilia & paraphilia, Like coffee cups, t-shirts, and other self valued ruminants of our ventures on the Replay Poker site. I am sure it will be the biggest in the world within a year or three.

Very nice post BD. You have done a great job. I really enjoy playing in your league and one thing I will add to what you have posted, is how nice all the members are. Basically just good poker and good friends. Almost never any whining and chat is friendly, some kidding and mostly all in very good spirits. Thanks for all your efforts and all the work you do in making it go.

Thanks Badonk for the scouting effort. I had no clue this league existed. Thank you Chuck Cox and Maine Cats for reaching out to me! I look forward to playing in the group! Helen

All I want to say is “Ditto” to what Seville just said.:grinning:

Hey everyone! This is my first post here, I was invited a while back but somehow missed the messages so this week will be my first foray into the fight. Super excited to have some high caliber hands with all of you!

Just putting it out there that I can definitely make %50(min) of the tournys. So please start the induction period. Also, what exactly does that entail? Is there anything I need to do?

Thank you for the post.

We hope that our private message answered all your questions. There is nothing more you need to do, but register to play in your first tournament on Sunday and you will be able to do that on Friday after you are inducted.

Many thanks to Badonk and all the great Donks…I’m so happy to see our league growing strong! I am a believer that the Donks are becoming the best MTT players on this site. I originally came to RP to get more hand experience in an effort to improve play at my local live MTT. At first I was not convinced RP was providing this with all the loose action and questions about random card dealing and such. I hung around long enough to find places on RP that serves my original purpose, with my Donk membership becoming the best place to do this! For a student of the game, the quality of play of us Donks has really improved my MTT play…thank you all! I have been crushing in 100k/250k/1m MTTS…With such great format, nice players, and creative leadership, a serious player will thrive here in our weekly tourneys…Good luck to all! (you’ll need it fer sher) Be well always. Your friend Goldie ;}
