OK Gang the 2007 Negreanu Open leaderboard website is now up and running at:http://www.negreanuopen.comI applogize for the few week delay in getting this up as I was in Tunica for the WSOP and then a couple weeks of vacation.As of right now the main page along with the FAQ pages are up so you should be able to get answers to just about any question you may have about the 2007 season.The leaderboard has not been updated as of yet, but should be updated with the last 3 weeks tournies by the end of this week if all goes to plan.Unfortunately with the new FCP software there is not a nice tournament summary page where I can pull the info and update the leaderboard with so my hands are tied awaiting a manual email from FCP for the results. This could delay the results being posted for up to a week after each tournament so I appreciate everyones patience in that regard.------------------------------------------------------The 2007 season will be pretty much ran exactly like the 2006 season with a few minor changes.Every week there will still be a $100 bonus money overlay where 1st place will receive $50, 2nd place will receive $30, and 3rd place will receive $20.Every week there will also be a random drawing where one person will win 2500 FCP points which can be used for anything in the FCP Store.The top 9 cumulative points winners for both the mixed league and the regular nlhe league will play in championship SnG where Daniel Negreanu will play in the 10th spot. The winner of that tourny will receive $200 in real money.The top 2 cumulative points winners for both the mixed league and the regular nlhe league will receive a custom Fullcontactpoker Hockey jersey with their choice of username and number on the back.3rd - 9th place in cumulative points for each quarter will receive 7500 FCP points in their accounts to be used for anything in the FCP Store.The top 9 each quarter will also advance to the year end Tournament of Champions (TOC) where the winner will win the grand prize which is a 1 hour phone consultation/coaching session from Daniel Negreanu himself! There will be a Tuesday night mixed league grand prize winner and a Wednesday night NLHE grand prize winner.------------------------------------------------------A couple other important notes that I know everyone has been awaiting:I realize we have not had the 3rd quarter Championship SnG, 4th Quarter Championship SnG, and the year end Tournament of Champions. Daniel has been on a tournament frenzy as of late and scheduling these with him as been difficult, but rest assured they will be held and I will post the details in this thread once they are available.Also regarding the winners for the 4th quarter. Since we only were able to hold 5 of the scheduled 13 tournaments we will be awarding the top 9 of both the Mixed League and the Regular Wed night league 5000 FCP points to their accounts which can be used to purchase anything in the FCP Store. I hope you will find this is a fair compromise to the originally announced prizes for the 4th quarter.Congratulations to the 2006 4th quarter winners .....Tuesday Night Mixed League Winners1 blacktie310 2 armen130 3 _4LoM_ 4 captcanada0 5 gilbertology 6 Barbie270 7 cfinnn 8 TENaciousB. 9 LostLeader1 Wednesday Night NLHE League Winners1 n8 da sk8 2 icemanrulz0 3 mcpickl 4 zsta2k6 5 PkrFloozie 6 sjbhawk33 7 olnumber70 8 Santzes0 9 j2k999 If there are any other questions regarding the 2006 or 2007 season that I have not addressed thus far feel free to post them here and I will do my best to answer them as timely as possible.Thanks again for everyones patience and I look forward to 2007 being the best Negreanu Open season yet!PS - I am leaving this in the General Poker forum for a few days for exposure, but this page's eventual permanent home will be in the FCP Leagues section of the forum.

A) Bonus money does have to be cleared as outlined in the FAQ .. http://negreanuopen.com/faq.html#22B) 2500 FCP points is a random prize as a bonus incentive and is equivalent to about $25 in prizes C) Of course its collect, duh. sw

So wait... If the cards are $1.59 for 1149 points, wouldn't that make 2298 points = $3.18? How are you getting $25 from this?? ....It's because I'm a charter member, isn't it?

The only flaw in your arguement is the bolded section. You have to assume that each deck of cards contains 2 Jokers, as well as the rules card, and that other useless card talking about the company that makes and distributes the cards, making a total of 112 cards.The free envelopes are pretty sweet though.

LOL I guess if you wanna look at it that way.Regarding the value of points you can get an FCP hat for around 3000 points and FCP shirts start around 2500 FCP points. Before the random drawing was for a hat/shirt, but it took alot of logistics to get the winner, the info, mail the item, etc etc. So for simplicity we just put 2500 points in your account and you can buy what you want. ITS A FREE RANDOM PRIZE!Also the other thing to remember is we are running a full set of prizes on both nights now in essence doubling the number of prizes, random drawings, bonus overlay, etc.Again guys this is a $10+$1 tourney that is meant to be a fun thing for the forum and Daniel and his team have stepped up pretty big in my opinion to offer all these weekly, quarterly, and yearly prizes so I hope everyone appreciates it and has a good time this season, I know I will.

ok got my 5000 points.........still think it should have been at least 6700 points...but really the jerseyas no where does it say if all games are playedOK Kids!Tonight is the first tournament of the 4th quarter of the Negreanu Open!Everyone has a fresh start with 0 points and its your last quarter to go for the big year end prizes.Remember top 9 each quarter get their choice of a customized and autographed FCP Jersey or an autographed FCP chipset.Also every week the top 3 winners get extra FCP bonus money. $50 for 1st, $30 for 2nd, and $20 for 3rd.We are doing things a little different this quarter with the random drawing. Instead of getting your choice of a hat or a shirt you will get 2500 FCP points deposited into your FCP account and you can buy whatever you want from the store.Also dont forget the top 9 from this quarter will join the other 27 winners to play in the final tournament of champions where the winner will get the grand prize of 1 hour of poker consultation and coaching from Daniel Negreanu himself.As always you can find all the details either in the official thread in the forums section ( http://www.fullconta...showtopic=43625 ) or on the official website http://www.negreanuopen.comGood luck to everyone tonight!but when will we learn who the the point winners were for jan 16th,17th,23rd,24th?

Jan 9th, 10th, 23rd, 24th should be updated by the end of this week and tonights and tomorrows tournies a few days after that.As I put in my original post there was some delay with the new format so I am dependant upon the FCP network getting me the tournament summary results.

maybe not a win, but better than if you would have stayed....Of course I went out like 40th this week so feel free to continue ignoring me.
