My friend is hosting his annual Christmas time poker tournament, and I'm looking to help him out a little. Last time I played in it, he was pretty unorganized and blinds didn't escalate...ever. It was also a shootout with about eight tables with four guys each...kinda weird. I know I've seen at least a few different pieces of software for organizing a tournament like this, and I'm looking for suggestions on a free tool for him. I think we're expecting about thirty people, and have eight hours or so to play NLHE. Thanks in advance.

im still not sold that many of these people that get these big online scores are winners when it comes to the live game, which, by the way, is real poker.

I run a pretty successful home game once/twice a month. We average around 32 players. Each start with 5,000 chips 25 min levels and the blinds run:25/2525/5050/10010min break75/150100/200150/30010min break200/400300/600400/80010min break500/1000700/14001000/20001500/3000I used thetournamentdirector.com when I had my PC but I had to switch to Tournamenthero.com for my Mac.

Thanks! I actually did try that out, just looking for suggestions on which one to go with, I found a few. I am lazy, though, so good call.
