PokerDIY has poker games and poker events. This can be a little confusing so I am going to explain the difference as they serve slightly different purposes.

Poker Games (middle icon on top  Find a Local Poker Game) are like poker game ads - ie. the intention of holding a poker game, looking for players, leagues etc. Here is an example of a proposed poker game in Manly, Sydney. You can drill down by location, search by distance from your closest town etc. As you can see, it is essentially an ad (always free ;) for a poker game or league to try and get players or to find a game.

Poker Events (main menu bar under Find) are useful for poker league managers to schedule, manage and organize an ACTUAL poker game, event or tourney. For example, you know you are definitely playing a poker tourney next Thursday as part of you poker league and you want to see which of your poker league members can make it and who is busy etc. You can schedule an event and make it private (so only your poker league members see it). They will receive an invitation and can RSVP (you'll get notified) so everyone can see who is busy etc. This works very much like MeetUp, Facebook events etc (you can export your poker event to Outlook via iCal). Here is an example of a poker event (for an online freeroll - it doens't have to be a live game!)

You could of course use both methods - post your home game in the Poker Game section if you are looking for players and then set up an event everytime you have an actual game scheduled. This is what we do for our Sydney Poker League.

Sorry, one last thing just to confuse you even more- after you have uploaded your scores for your poker league on PokerDIY (you do have a poker league scoreboard right?) you will notice that your profile shows "Last x Poker Games". Basically a poker league has one or more seasons which consist of one or more poker games. So here is my poker league, here is the 2008 Season and here are the poker game results from last week.

I hope that clears it up a bit! Let me know on the poker forums if you have any queries!

To play a team game we always need some of the friends who
can come and play with you and have a nice time as well,but what you will do when there is a tough schdule and you and your friends have no time to interact with each other, which is equal to Problem
This problem can be solved here you can catch up this lines.
