FLOP teams use the daily ESPN Daily 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. If you would like to be notified when the next FLOP draft will be held or have any questions, just email us. prohta is the current FLOP commissioner.

MBI- The Message Board Invitational, or MBI, is a grueling 10 week series that keeps an accumulative score for each player and has periodic elimination of low scores.

There are generally plenty to go around and it is very rare that someone that wants to play cannot do so. As the name would indicate a general familiarity with the EPC Message Board is necessary. The MBI is played Saturday evenings at 9pm. It is run by Mr_Dastardly aka Twice Racked.

PMBO- The Poker Message Board Open is held every once in a while, there really is no set date or time, and as the name would indicate, the same as the MBI, a general familiarity with the EPC Message Board is necessary.
