1 Updated Team League Rules 10-4-09 on Mon Oct 05, 2009 5:59 pm

I have been given the job now of completely taking care of leagues and I have found it necessary to update a few things because of problems that have arised, you will find these in red. Also if you have any questions, problems, or concerns, please send them to me now, either by pm here in old forums, get me on yahoo at jo_rich33, or you can email me at jo_rich33@yahoo.com Thank you for your cooperation.

This post will be in two sections since there is not enough room to post it all in one.



What is a Team League?


A Team League is a league season that your team can enter to challenge other teams for FatChips. A regular team league season is usually 8 to 20 weeks depending on how many teams register and play. Points are awarded to the winning team based on the number of players from their team that remain on the table once the last person from the opposing team has been eliminated from the match plus one point for the win. Therefore there is a possible of 5 points being awarded during each match (one point for the win and four points for having all four members from your team once the last person from other team has been eliminated)

What are the requirements?


1. Your team must have a minimum of 10 members on a team at the time that they join the team league.

2. League registration fee 0 FATchips.

3. Each team must have a lifetime overall team FatChip count (these are total chips credited to the team at the start of the season based upon CFC internal records) of no less than 100,000 FatChips at the time you join the team league.

4. Team Table and Forum Requirement: Each team must have to have a team forum page. We need leaders to communicate with the rest of the teams for the Leagues games to be set. If you do not have a team forum page at this time please create one and advise Team League director(s) of the location or locations of your team forum at the time of registration.

FatCat Team League Rewards

Each point is worth 2k payable at the end of the regular season.
• Regular Team League shall consist of each team playing all other teams that have register two times and shall have a minimum of 2 games a week. The total number of games will depend on the number of teams that enter and if there is an odd number of teams registered than a bye week will be created.

• Team shall communicate with each other to set day and time for their scheduled team league match and once scheduled both teams must advise FatCat of the date and time of their matches by posting them in a thread that will be designated by the Team League Director(s). Please coordinate dates and times that is convenient for both teams and try to have that game posted a day before the game is to take place so a mod can be present. ALL TEAMS MUST HAVE BOTH GAMES THAT ARE SCHEDULED EACH WEEK PLAYED BY MIDNIGHT OF THAT SATURDAY, IF TEAMS ARE NOT ABLE TO AGREE UPON A SET TIME AND DATE, FATCAT WILL DESIGNATE A DATE AND TIME FOR THE LEAGUE GAME, WHICH WILL BE SATURDAY NIGHT AT 8PM SERVER TIME, IN THE CASE THAT ONE TEAM HAS ON NUMEROUS TIMES TRIED TO SET UP A DATE AND TIME WITH A TEAM AND THE OTHER TEAM IS NOT COOPERATING OR REPLYING TO THEIR REQUESTS, THEN I WILL SEND THE OTHER TEAM A PM LETTING THEM KNOW IF THEY DO NOT SET UP A DATE AND TIME BY FRIDAY NIGHT THE GAME WILL BE SET FOR A TIME ON SATURDAY THAT IS CONVENIENT FOR THE REQUESTING TEAM. PLEASE SEND ME ANY PROOF AS TO HOW MANY TIMES YOU HAVE TRIED TO CONTACT THE OTHER TEAM THAT IS NOT REPLYING SO I KNOW THAT YOU HAVE TRIED TO GET A GAME SET UP WITH THEM. ALSO PLEASE MAKE SURE YOUR TEAM LEAGUE COORDINATOR INFORMATION IS UP TO DATE SO HOPEFULLY WE WILL NOT HAVE ANY MORE OF THESE PROBLEMS.


• Bye games are freebies and 5pts. (no need to report these)

The winning team is required to post the results of their team league games by completing the information required in the results section of the league forum. Failure to report may result in points not being awarded.

• If any team forfeits 3 games, for any reason, that team will be eliminated from team league and shall not receive any FatCat rewards for participating in team league. In addition, points will be recalculated to reflect that all teams scheduled to play against that team shall be treated as a bye and each team in the entire league shall receive 5 points as if that team never registered in the first place.

In the semi-finals, each team shall be required to play their opponent in a best of 5 series and shall be completed within one week from the start of the semi-finals.

Team League & Sit N Go Policy


It has come to the attention of FatCat Administration that a written policy needs to be put in place for League and Sit N Go play. Since the concept of team play in poker is unique in itself, the following will be the policy.

(1) CARD SHARING - Cross talking about cards will not be allowed. No player on the table should be allowed to state or discuss at the table what his or hers cards (for example C – D – H – S indicating a suit or AA (pocket aces) AK (ace king), or etc indicating what cards they are holding in their pocket cards) are at any time during the team league match. Even after the hand is over, a player cannot state what they cards were in the previous hand. Penalty: Each team shall be given 1 warning during any given match. If any member of CFC breaks this policy after the warning and during game play their chat will be disabled, if that option is available, during the rest of the team match. In addition, that member shall be fined 10,000 FatCat chips directly from their FatCat account and if that member does not have sufficient FatCat chips in their account then the fine will be assessed against the team account for a first offense. The fine will be increased to 25,000 FatCat chips for a second offense and 2 points shall be deducted from that team’s overall team league standings. Third and subsequent offenses shall be a fine of 50,000 FatCat chips and 5 points shall be deducted from that team’s overall team league standings. In addition, if it is determined that a particular FC member routinely violates this rule and his team does not correct this situation, that person shall be barred from playing in any future team league event during the current season.

(2) No one at the table or watching the match shall tell someone playing in the team league match to fold, check or to give chips to a certain other player while the hand is in play. THE HAND IS NOT OVER UNTIL AFTER THE POT HAS BEEN AWARDED BY THE PROGRAM. There is no exception to this rule even if the hand is over (but not awarded by the program) or that it might be only one team in said hand. Penalty: Each team shall be given 1 warning during any given match. If any member of CFC breaks this policy after the warning and during game play their chat will be disabled, if that option is available, during the rest of the team match. In addition, that member shall be fined 10,000 FatCat chips directly from their FatCat account and if that member does not have sufficient FatCat chips in their account then the fine will be assessed against the team account for a first offense. The fine will be increased to 25,000 FatCat chips for a second offense and 2 points shall be deducted from that team’s overall team league standings. Third and subsequent offenses shall be a fine of 50,000 FatCat chips and 5 points shall be deducted from that team’s overall team league standings. In addition, if it is determined that a particular FC member routinely violates this rule and his team does not correct this situation, that person shall be barred from playing in any future team league event during the current season.

(3) Unreasonable sitting out during play is not allowed. A short bathroom break or to leave the table for a few minutes is acceptable as long as you inform the table prior to leaving and indicating that you have returned. There is a sit out timer that boots players who sit out for 10 hands and will be eliminated on the 11th hand. (No exceptions to this rule since this is a global rule for all tournaments and incorporated into the program).

(4) FatCat does not recognize sub teams or sister teams and therefore there cannot be any substitutes for a team member during the team league match. Each team member must have their team designated on their table avatar during the scheduled game. Failure to have your team name on your avatar will result in a forfeiture of the match.

(5) There is a minimum of 7 day waiting period for new team members to play in a team league match. This should be sufficient time to contact FatCat Administration and have your table avatar corrected prior to the team match. At the time of registering for team league, each team shall provide FatCat Administration with a complete team roster and in addition each team is required to provide updates of any changes to their team roster during team league season. Failure to comply with the 7 day waiting period will result in a forfeiture of the match.

(6) Any team that does not have all 4 players at the table before 15 minutes after the game is to start will forfeit that game.

It is each team’s responsibility to put into place a policy for their team to play by. (How to work as a team) in League and Mini tourney play. The best way to do this is in the private area of your team’s forums and by pm.

A policy has now been set for all to play by; it will be the responsibility of Admin and the Leaders to enforce said policy.
