WOW! I see that this is post numero 500. That should be big news in this little corner of the intertubles all on it's own. Surprisingly though, bigger things have been going on.
I look pretty good as a winner huh!
As mentioned here a few times before, Peb's and I have been slinging a few chips with the fine folks from The Canadian Amateur Poker Tour. It gets us out of the cave once in a while and with the WPBT coming up, it's good to get the feel of actual chips in our hands. Rather than just clicking some stupid little button.
There's also a few added side bonuses like hanging out with Brudder Carson and DonKaa, who also make the trek out for some fun. Throw in the fact that the games are played at what we can finally call our own little Pub down the road, and it all makes for a pretty great night of Poker.
I'd bitched and complained about free bar Poker on several occasions, comparing the standard play in NLHE free rolls to basically getting repeatedly kicked in the junk. Of course it really can be like that, particularly when you continually get in with the best of it, only to have miracle runner-runners come along to take away all of your steam. But that can happen in any game and I may have been a little too hard on this game at first.
The President of The Canadian Amateur Poker Tour is a hard working guy, trying to really make something out of his vision for Poker around this area. He even deals the final table, making sure that everything is done just right. It is still in it's infancy and quite naturally, there will be some small hiccups along the way on any given night. But Kelly's always there to get everything straightened out and running back to as smooth as the players will allow. If you're in the area of one of the C.A.P.T. games at your local establishment, I suggest you give it a shot.
Up here we don't have access to the best Free Bar Poker running South of the border. But I think if Kelly keeps working as hard as he has been on the C.A.P.T., he might be able to make it the Riverchasers of the North! That can't be anything but great news, for all the kids hanging out around Bedrock!
My sincerest thanks for dropping by....
