51,581 and counting
The final table included two friends of the blog:
1. darth_forte (Crofton, MD)yestbay1 is a longtime reader, fellow actor, and all-around supercool guy. Congratulations, DW! Also, GoodRev42, who is a fellow Metroblogger (he writes for The OC Metblog, but I won't hold that against him) busted me out, follwing in the footsteps of stardawg, who busted me on Monday, and went on to finish second in the $5 tourney. The moral of this story is: if you bust me out of a Katrina Relief tournament, you will make the final table.
2. kkalin (Sterling Hts., MI)

4. chico6y (Basel, Switzerland)
5. Saturn21 (Ottawa, ON, Canada)

9. yestbay1 (Grapevine, TX)
I'll be live blogging the action in tonight's $50 event over at CardSquad, for anyone who is interested.
And the whole reason we're doing this is kicking ass. Our two events so far have raised $51,581.00 for victims of Hurricane Katrina. A whole bunch more will be added tonight.
