You are the Tournament Director Series 3: Introduction

We know that many of you enjoy reading the 'You are the Tournament Director' articles in series one and series two. These were twenty different situations that our panel ruled on in the first series and fifteen situations for you to argue, agree on or just laugh at in the second. 

Well we are back with some problems that happen every day and some that hopefully will never happen again. We hope that they make you think as well as make you laugh. We also hope that they make you realise just how tough a job it is being in charge of a poker tournament or card room. It is often a thankless job.

For the next round of questions we have a new panel with four new faces. Matt Savage (USA) and Thomas Kremser (EUR) are still with us and remain the backbone of the sensible rulings and whilst all the others made some great contributions we wanted to get some different views and a wider selection of opinions.

Tournament director for the current WSOP and WSOPE Jack Effel joins us as well as Jeff Leigh, veteran card room manger of the infamous Vic Cardroom on the Edgware Road in London. Thomas Lamatsch from Vienna who has worked at EPT, EPM and E-WSOP events and David Lamb whose Vegas CV is impressive reading and who was also one of four founding members on the board of the Tournament Director's Association (TDA) complete the six.

For the next round we have taken questions that at various times have been posted on the Mob Forum or emailed into us so some of you might recognize the situations. If any of you have any scenarios that you would like our panel to consider feel free to send them through for when we do the fourth series at some time next year. You can send them to themob@thehendonmob.com.
