First off - The WPBT Warm Up.
Alright kids what is it, like 10 sleeps 'till the WPBT gathering officially gets under way? WAY TOO LONG! Having no patience for waits such as this, I asked AlCantHang to co-host a little WPBT Warm Up event with me. (read: I asked him to do all the work and I'd just tag my name on at the end somewhere!) We figured a pre-WPBT event would help serve a few important purposes.
1) It gives everyone going to our gathering a chance to make a few mobneys. Mobneys that of course, can be used to buy Al and I a drink at the gathering. :)
2) With a good showing of support for the event and a win by Al or myself, we'd at least have some idea of how we were going to pay for approximately 1% of our planned bar tab at this years gathering.
3) It gives those that have to miss this years event, a chance to participate in the WPBT in at least some small way.
4) Hopefully it helps everyone to kill a few more hours of the friggin' wait.
So this Friday December the 4th at 10:00pm ET, there will be a WPBT Warm Up held on FullTilt. The game will be deep stack H.O.R.S.E. for a measley $10 + $1 buy-in.
As you can see,
I'm already registered.
The very clever P/W = vegasin1week
Al and I hope to see a strong showing of WPBT gatherers for this one! As starting The 2009 WPBT gathering with bragging rights like a win in this event, surely has to be hard to beat!
Whether you're actually going to make this years gathering or not, we hope to "see" all our friends out for this event.
If you get the chance, pimping this event will obviously gain you magic karma bonus points for life!

As mentioned sometime last week, I sat down at the virtual felt with a few of my good friends in Pauly's Turkey Cup last Thursday night. What a great time!
Now that may have been because of the Donkey start I had, where I luck-sack cracked Aces. Totally miss-read the hand, but sucked out just the same.
We'll mark that one down in the category of, races I win. Okay, Okay! So we'll have to start a new file for that one, since I've never won a race before.
My starting table where I was placed just to the left of the lovely Mrs. Dank, improved once again with the additions of my fellow BB and CHANGE 100.
That made for a much prettier table indeed!
UH, CHANGE that is!
BadBlood tossed 400 into the pot for a raise on my big blind soon after. Having a little fun rather than actually playing Poker, I made it 700 on top of his raise.
It was probably just the opportunity for that screen cap. that made me make a hammer raise there, but who knows? Maybe it was a "little" Poker after all.
As is typically the case for me, I went out on a pretty good read. I put Shiesty on a mid to strong Ace here and quite honestly said, "gotta' be the Asian-Jew" out loud, before jamming my stack into the middle. There was a quick call and all the chips were in the middle pre-flop.
I was off by one card on my read and naturally, I was kicked in the junk.
Great chat did follow though;
Badblood44: Damn Bammer. I thought you were always making that stuff up.
BamBamCan: I won a race once.
Badblood44: The guy must've been a cripple!
That left me with 500 chips and a prayer. I jammed with 9-10 into a pot that would quadruple me up, but it was not to be. So out I go.
32 place of the 84 runners. Great time though and as always, it was great to "see" everyone along the way.
Well, that's it for now. I hope everyone can see fit to pimp and participate in The WPBT Warm Up this week.
Ten sleeps kids!
Just ten more sleeps 'till Vegas!
My sincerest thanks for dropping by....
