Peer run leagues and tournaments-
There are also several leagues and tournaments run by the players of EPC. They have catchy names like the MBI, the Gauntlet, Aces Up, The Race for the Poker Cup, and Wacky Wednesday Ozzfest, to name a few. Some of these are open, but most have an invite list. Your best bet with these is to watch the message board. You will see them mentioned and if one catches your interest you can always post a question on that thread.


Team Leagues-
FLOP and BRAG are team leagues where collective best scores are counted. Anyone can join. FLOP consists of an open draft while BRAG is a little more cut throat/cloak and dagger. Wait, scratch that, they are pretty much the same.

Here is the link to the BRAG league database- You need to join the BRAG Yahoo Group to be able to access it. _spee is the current BRAG commissioner and can usually be reached via the Yahoo group. You will also see BRAG related posts on the message board. BRAG teams use the Sunday Qualifiers for their scoring.

Here is the link to the FLOP league database- You need to join the FLOP Yahoo Group to be able to access it. FLOP has an open draft before the start of each 10 week session. prohta, the FLOP commissioner, will post news about the draft on the message board well before it takes place, and also the weekly standings and any other pertinent information. FLOP teams use the daily ESPN League games for their scoring. Yeah I know that might sound confusing, but don't try and figure it all out at once; Start by trying to get on a team. ; )
