We introduce a twiki page with collections of generated event samples at LHC energies including a heavy quark-antiquark pair. These samples are generated with the POWHEG method and can be used to preparedistributions at the NLO accuracy with first radiation treated according to the parton shower approach. The event files are stored according to the Les Houches accord and standard parton shower Monte Carlo programs can be used to shower these events further and simulate events at the hadron level, ready for almost arbitrary experimental analysis. Currently the available final states are the following: (i) t + T, (ii) t + T + H, (iii) t + T + b + B, (iv) t + T + jet, while the generation of four other final states are in progress.
