I'd be down too, though I have questions about how feasible the payments, etc are? I thought it was illegal for US people to play online nowadays? I haven't even tried in 3+ years, but I don't remember hearing things changed?

I remember that lots of US banks stopped allowing transfers to the sites that made it possible as well...

Any details on this?

its technically illegal for the banks and other methods of deposits to allow it, but technically its not illegal for you to play, is my understanding. if you want to hear more details, pm me. :-o ;-D

the only thing that may suck, is that if we have a $10 tournament, people are more than likely just depositing for this (minimum deposit is probably 25 or 50 i would think). if you finish in 3rd you'd probably be getting something like $15 or $20 back depending on the number of people.

id be playing for fun and competiveness and not necessarily money, so its not a problem to me.

I'd play if I'm available when you guys play.

Sunday USA time would be good for me, as I've got that (Aust. Monday) off. ;-D

I think Sunday's tough this time of year, as football always throws monkey wrenches in. I'm swamped myself...Aussie, can you not do Saturday?

I don't think so, because the prime times for people in the USA to play on your Saturday/our Sunday I'll either be asleep or working.
And I don't think you want to play at 2-3 am your time when I finish work. :-S

Unfortunately, if it's Sunday, I'll have to withdraw... I'm definitely down for future games, though...
