Unofficial Poker Smash Tournament!


High Score Tournament


Well since no one really has bought this game, I will host an unofficial tournament, so no site award, but I will make badges for your sigs.

RULES:
  • Tournament runs for a week, from Sunday February 24. to Sunday March 1
  • You MUST take a picture of your High score, then post it in this thread
  • Please be legit, and get the score yourself
  • Top 3 will be crowned with a special badge
  • You can start at any speed level you want
  • You must use action mode!
  • NOTE-This is not an MP tournament, it is for individual high scores!
Good Luck Poker Smashers!

Once you've taken the picture, copy it to your computer.
Then go to a website such as http://imageshack.us or http://photobucket.com/ and follow the uploading process.
Once it's finished, it'll give you a few links for the picture, copy the "Direct Link" and paste it into a post.
Then just add the [img] tags around it and it's all ready.


The other way is once you've got it on your computer, start a post and add the picture as an attachment.

I scored a nice 225,000. Is there an acceptable way for me to bring up that score, take a picture and post it, even though it was last night?

I've got a question, are we supposed to take a picture of right when the game ends, or of the final screen that states the game's score and its breakdown along with our best score?

Google is your friend.
Just search "uploading pictures" and you'll find out easily.

What score do you have, by the way?

Here is my BEST Score 417,280!!!!! I hope that it holds up against the current zero other entries!!

And by the way if anybody wants to play me - send me a friend request (please with a NOTE attached) and we can play some POKER SMASH!!!!!!!!

Well I got a better score today and while playing my game froze so I wasn't able to finish so who knows how high my score would have gone. I don't know if you will accept this so I am not going to delete the above picture by here is my screenshot of my new entry 733,335!!! Can you belive it how close I was to the 1 mil!! Damn 1 hour and a half for nothing............

Now I hope very dearly that you accept the 733K score because today I did a 530K score and didn't take a picture becuase I still firgured it was under the 655K from lionsfan.... Now lets see what otisbum can come up with because I would love to WIN this !!

I'm counting on only three people entering.

(edited) Okay, at least this is a decent score.

There's no way to completely lose something, along with Gamerscore, I'm sure you gained a few friends and what not through the competition. [/optimism]

And if it were me, I wouldn't want to win after someone goes easy on me.
You might get lucky though, I might completely forget or have something come up.

well, in case I don't get a higher score (and I don't expect too) here's my entry, just so everyone else can feel excellent in having beaten someone!

I only really got that far because I happened to get every single challenge hand up through level 35-ish, then got scattered ones every now and then.

I think I got two 100k point challenge hands, so that helped a lot. Even with all that, I think I'm only ranked 70 for highest Action Mode scores. I'll have to get 100 million to play it safe.

That's where skill comes into play, though, getting those challenge hands. I still have trouble with flushes.

badges ftw!

I have much more trouble with straights than I do flushes. I can do them, it just takes a bit more concentration than flush since they have to be in a specific order.

Congrats to everyone who won, and better luck next time TheGoal. If we have another tournament, hopefully we can get a lot more people in on it, this was fun.
Maybe have best score in Action and Timed and find some way to combine them and make it an overall tourney.

EDIT: I think I'm gonna put together a table of all my stats for three of a kinds, full houses, etc. and try to break a certain amount of each. I'm pretty close to 1000 four of a kinds.

Those would make nice contests. First to reach a certain number of some of the hands. Like 1000 4 of a kinds. 100 straight flushes, etc.

If we did that though, we'd all have to make sure we start at 0 or some common number, to make it fair. It'd be hard thing to take into account, since pictures aren't the most reliable things.

Of course, if we got a predetermined amount of people signed up, we could have whoever is in charge make new Live accounts for each person and just hand them the e-mail and password the minute the contest starts, just to be sure everyone starts fairly.

It'd take a lot of planning and organization to do something that complex, so we should probably just stick with score-based competitions.

I would love to do something like that though. Maybe sometime in the future so enough people have the game. If there's just 4-5 people, it won't be very diverse, and some of the same people would win each time.

I plan on holding unofficial tournies, for games that arent so popular. If you guys like the idea, leave some feedback. These things add some excitement and competition IMO.

I agree, this was pretty cool. Be sure to let me know if you do one for another game.

I'm all for another one for Poker Smash, hopefully more people would take notice and join up.

I think it's a good way either to get people playing these games or to reward people who're already playing them. Plus, if they're high-score contests, there's much less overhead in terms of running them: it's not like, say, setting up 4v4 matches.

Yep. The easier they are to run, the more often they can happen.
