I know this has been brought up before (by me) but what are the chances that FCP/OnGame will expand the game selection? I'd love to play 2-7 TD (which is available on Ultimate Bet) or Badugi (Doyle's Room), but I'm not too confident that OnGame will ever change. Is there any update on that front???
I've got half a foot inside their organization. If I start working for them, I sure will try my best to add some more games, mainly all the HORSE games.

I would actually deposit in FCP and play these, but Tuesday is my dart night. Great idea and after the 1st of the year, if the open continues, count me in!!!

Looks like fun, I'll definitely do some of these, although it sucks there is no Razz on FCP.

Where is Limit Hold'em? Where is Stud Hi/Lo?This ain't mixed until you mix those two in...*Edit*Ok I'm gonna try to give some intelligent feedback instead.This strives to be a mixed format league. The problem is that right now the emphasis is on No limit and Pot limit which only constitutes 2/3 of the available formats.Allthough PL hold'em and NL hold'em isn't fully overlapping they have a lot in common skillvise compared to limit hold'em. Furthermore this is the Negreanu Mixed format league, and I can't see why Daniels own favourite game, Stud Hi/Lo, isn't thrown in. If this is an Ongame issue it sure must be very simple to fix. I've even recently got in touch Ongame personally, maybe I could pull some strings?And about the crapshoot that you consider limit to be in the later stages. IMHO NL tournaments are equal crapshoot contests in the end so the point isn't valid. The blinds get high in both games.My suggestion would be:Omaha Hi/Lo (limit of course)StudStud Hi/Lo (with a fix from Ongame)PL OmahaNL Hold'em (since there allready is a NegO league with NL this could and should switch to PL)Hold'emThat's just my opinion.
Thanks for the feedback and suggestions. Again this is the first quarter trial run and we will take a look and see how it went. Stud 8 is just simply out of our control and LHE is certainly an option.

I'm tempted to just tell you to wait in the Bodog lobby until you see us.... but this might actually be a serious question... so the answer is, the games are playing on the site that you are on right now.... Full Contact Poker.

After seeing the results of the O8 poll it was fairly even with a slight favor going to Limit O8 so I have made a compromise and made the first O8 game limit and the 2nd one PL. The championship SnG for the top 9 which was originally going to be played as PL O8 is now Limit Omaha 8. Hope this makes the majority of the people happy, but I realize its not going to please everyone.Again this is my first run at this and I am always open to listening to more feedback and suggestions for the 2007 season. Hope everyone has fun

I would love to be able to play that or A-5 triple draw, but Ongame doesnt offer it.

I've played quite a lot recently on the Ongame network and haven't experienced one single crash?

+1 rebumpoh, and a mixed league tourney that doesnt include limit holdem makes no sense, take out 1 of the nlhe ones and replace it with limit, if people want more nl they can play the regular wednesday tourneys.
