TOURNAMENT STRUCTURE: BIG BLIND ANTE
- In the later levels of poker tournaments, an ante is introduced to further drive the action besides the incentive to enter the pot formed by the small blind and big blind.
- Typically, the ante is paid by every player at the table. A lot of poker players and poker tournament organizers believe this slows down the game, especially when players argue over who has, and who hasn't paid their ante.
- In tournaments operating a big blind ante, the player in the big blind pays the ante for everyone at the table. As the big blind moves every hand so does the responsibility to pay the ante.

- Teams will be formed in two stages
- Stage 1 - Primary Draft
- In the primary draft, Captains will draft 4 players from their assigned region (North, South, East, West, JeffCo)
- Stage 2 - Lottery / Supplemental Draft
- Any player not drafted in Stage 1 becomes a "free agent" and their name will be placed in a hat, forming a lottery system of sorts. Thirty names will be pulled using said lottery system. Then the team captains will continuing drafting from the 30 players whose names were drawn by lottery system. The creation and use of the lottery system assures that every player interested has a chance to get drafted to participate in DeepStacks Civil War.
We are still working to find a draft date/time that works best for all Team Captains. Drafted players will be notified via email and a list of players and their assigned team will be published online (Facebook / Website).
