The “Admiral Poker League” promotion is intended for all cash game players at the Admiral Poker Room.

(wife, husband, parents, brothers, sisters, children).
The promotion is valid from October 2, 2023 to November 30, 2023.
Who it is aimed at:
Participation in the promotion is not automatic, but voluntary.
The interested player announces to the Floorman, when applying for a seat at the Cash Game table,
the desire to participate in the “Admiral Poker League,” and the Floorman fills out a special file at the Pitstand PC where the player’s first name, last name, and time of arrival is noted.
The moment the player leaves the table, the player goes to the Floorman to declare the close of his or her playing session so that the closing time and the number of points earned by the player is noted on the form.
Incorrectly filled out or incompletely filled out forms will result in the annulment of the score.
It is the player’s responsibility to check the correct scoring and completion of the form at the Floorman’s Pitstand.
It is mandatory to use your own name when registering points, however, you can request to the Floorman that your name not appear on the updated leaderboard published at www.admiralpoker.ch, thus registering your acquired points under a pseudonym.

In case of opening a (new) table, the promotion is active even with a table not yet operational
until the number of 3 players at the table is reached. In that case, if the table does not become operational, the player’s minute count will be suspended i.e. it will not start.
The scores obtained during the mentioned period, will create a ranking in which the top 15 positions will be awarded.
The actual time spent at the tables will be counted for scoring, after an absence of more than 15 minutes the player’s tokens may be removed to yield the chair to players on the waiting list.
In this case, the ousted player’s time at the table is interrupted and will resume from zero when he or she returns to sit at the table. During play, a 45-minute dinner break is allowed in the 7-10 p.m. slot.
The dinner break must be expressly declared to the Floorman, otherwise the counting of Admiral Points will be stopped after 15 minutes.
Once the 45 minutes allowed for the dinner break has passed, the player’s daily minute count will be stopped and the player’s stack can be safely removed from the table.
During the declared dinner break the player will be asked to remove their chips from the table,
but the counting of Admiral Points will not be interrupted as long as the player returns to the Admiral Poker Room no later than 45 minutes.
Whether or not to remove the tokens of players absent for a period longer than allowed by the rules,
is subject to the decision of the Floorman.
The dinner break must always be within the session of play and never at the end; no exceptions are allowed.
It is the Floorman’s right to sanction up to daily disqualification from the “Admiral Poker League,” any player who deliberately spends too much time away from the table.
