What is WRGPT5?
WRGPT5 is a no-limit Texas Holdem tournament in which all game activity
takes place via electronic mail. A program, written by
acts as dealer and manages all aspects of the game.
This year's game started October 25 with 535 players from all over
the world, and should last until mid-June.
The tournament rules are similar to those for
World Series of Poker
main event. The dealer program has a
rich command language
allowing players to mail in their betting
actions out-of-turn; these actions only manifest themselves to the
other players in turn. Even with these advanced actions, the game
moves rather slowly, with most tables averaging fewer than one
hand per day.
There will probably be another tournament next year; keep
tuned to rec.gambling.poker
for signup details.

current WRGPT5 standings are available for anonymous ftp.
Table assignments for the current round give each player's bankroll
at the start of the round, plus links to the showdowns at that table.
I have made all the showdowns for WRGPT5
availble via anonymous FTP.
There is one directory per table, and one file per hand played.
There is also a
showdown by date collection, with
one file per date here, containing all that day's showdowns.
Player Summary Lists
Since WRGPT5 is so big, and because it's very hard to watch all the
tables and players, I've made some web pages designed to make it
easier to find out about how other people play. The
elimination list has a list
of all eliminations, sorted by the player eliminated. The
(compressed) has a link
from every player (sorted by nickname) to every hand in which that
player has shown down cards. Finally, the
(compressed) has a link
from every player (sorted by first name) to every hand that
player has won. I usually update these pages after each table
