Start of 2022 Q2
Get ready for the second quarter of 2022! Our regular league games for the 2nd quarter of 2022 start on
Sunday, 3 April, at 3PM ET and 7PM ET (New York time).
Experience has shown that those who play often and well tend to finish high on the leaderboards. So don’t miss the chance to have a great start into the new quarter!
This rest of this message contains important information about leaderboard awards, advancement to Gold, the Tournament of Champions, our quarterly All-Donks-In series, and minimum participation requirements. Please take the time to read it.
Like last quarter, we have five quarterly leaderboards (one for each weekly game and one composite board) for both the Silver and Golden Donks tiers. At the end of the quarter, each leaderboard winner receives a virtual crown (Silver or Gold depending on the tier) and is inducted into the Hee Hawl of Fame. This quarter’s leaderboards will be hosted on our league website here:
In addition, don’t forget that we have two ongoing annual championships, the winners of which will receive a virtual Ring of Flames award at the end of 2022:
The European Annual Championship is based on all 2022 regular Wednesday 3PM ET and Sunday 3PM ET league games from both the Silver Donks and the Golden Donks tiers.
The American Annual Championship is based on all 2022 regular Wednesday 9PM ET and Sunday 7PM ET league games from both the Silver Donks and the Golden Donks tiers.
Also make sure to regularly check out our League Results and Updates thread:
This quarter we will advance ten Silver Donks to the Golden Donks tier (up from seven in recent quarters):
The winners and the runners-up of the Wed 3PM and Sun 3PM leaderboards.
The winners of the Wed 9PM and Sun 7PM leaderboards.
The remaining spots are filled up with the highest finishing Silver Donks on the composite leaderboard. There are at least four spots for advancement via the composite leaderboard but note that there could be more if the same player occupies more than one of the other advancement spots.
The reason for advancing the top 2 finishers on the 3PM leaderboards is that these games have attracted a significantly higher number of Silver Donks in recent quarters.
Invitations to the Tournament of Champions
The Tournament of Champions is hosted weekly on Mondays at 3PM ET in the Hee Hawl of Fame League.
Members of the Hee Hawl of Fame are eligible to play in the Tournament of Champions. In addition, the chip winners of all other league tournaments from the preceding Wednesday and Sunday games are invited to participate in this prestigious tournament. The winner of the Tournament of Champions leaderboard receives a virtual Tournament of Champions bracelet.
If you are eligible to play, you will be able to register here a couple of hours before the start of the tournament: https://www.replaypoker.com/leagues/22
Bye Week and All-Donks-In
The bye week for this quarter is scheduled for Wednesday, 25 May and Sunday, 29 May. On these dates, instead of our regular weekly games, we will host our quarterly All-Donks-In Series (ADI). All Donks (Silver and Gold) will compete together in four tournaments (at our usual times). The winner of the ADI receives a virtual All-Donks-In bracelet.
Minimum participation requirement
I would like to remind all Donks that the league requires its members to commit to playing regularly in at least one of our four weekly tournaments. If extraordinary circumstances prohibit you from meeting this requirement, please get in touch.
Good luck and I am looking forward to seeing you at the tables!
