Announcing the first WWdN poker tourney
After playing tournaments every day for almost a month, and then hitting a terrible losing streak, I just wanted to walk away from poker for a bit. It's been a nice break, but I've recently started to get the itch to play again.
Anne and I went to Vegas yesterday for the opening of the new Blue Man Group show at Venetian (full review is coming soon -- short review: it's awesome). We stayed at Mirage, and though I was more interested in sitting with my wife than sitting at a poker table, walking past the poker room reminded me of how much I miss the damn game.
So, I think I'll get back on the horse with a WWdN semi-private tournament, this Friday afternoon. It's just a $10+1 buy-in, so it's affordable for most people. To come and play with me and other WWdN readers, sign up for PokerStars and then when you log in, go to Tourneys -> Private -> WWdN: Where's My Burrito? Invitational, or you can just search for tournament number 13722477. The tournament will happen on Friday the 14th at 4:00PM EST. I know this is a little early for West Coast players, but it should make it easier for international players to join us. The password is "monkey."
In easy-to-cut-and-paste-into-your-own-blog form:
What: WWdN Where's My Burrito? Invitational
When: Friday, October 14th. 4:00 PM EST
Tournament number: 13722477
This tournament is open to anyone who reads WWdN or WWdN:IE, or who happens to know that the password is monkey. :)
It should be fun, a nice warm-up to the PokerStars Blogger Tourney, and if enough people show up (and enjoy it, of course) I will make it a weekly event, with the time (and buy-in) rotating to accomodate everyone who wants to play. As an added incentive, I'll name the next tournament after the player who knocks me out.
I know two days is short notice, but I hope lots of you can make it. I'll be sure to give more notice for future tourneys.
I hope to see you there!
