I'm hitting the road today. I can't wait. I'll be back to poker blogging by August 18th. Check the Tao of Pauly for on the road updates and setlists. No serious poker for me the next ten days. I will be seeing the final six Phish concerts all over the East Coast, ending up with a two day festival called Coventry.
8.9 Hampton, VirginiaThe Vermont shows will be held in the middle of nowhere, and Coventry will balloon to the largest city in Vermont for the weekend as over 75,000 Phisheads traveling from all over the country to say good bye to their favorite band. I'm shooting some footage for my personal archives and when I have time, I'll eventually splice everything down to a documentary film. I will be meeting up with Daddy from Snail Trax and maybe we can find some dudes to play some late night cards. Here's a gallery of pictures from IT, last year's summer end Phish festival.

I'm on hiatus, so you know what that means? I'm starting up a new Hilton Sisters Challenge 4!!
Hilton Sisters Challenge 4
Your mission: Holding QQ you must crack AA in any game on Party Poker (except a $5 or $10 single table SNG). The time period is from: Monday August 9th from 6:00 PM EST thru Aug 16st at Midnight EST. That's 150 hours for the contest. Send me the hand history and make sure you type: Dr. Pauly loves Paris in the chat.

Your prize: An authentic Pauly painting. And if you are not into the visual arts, I'll send you an autographed copy of my latest, unpublished novel The Blind Kangaroo instead.
I'll be adding a Bonus Bounty, but only poker bloggers are eligible for the bounty.
Super Bonus I: If you crack Al Can't Hang's AA with the Hilton Sisters, I will send you a Pauly Painting and a copy of the Paris Hilton sex tape, autographed by Al Can't Hang... of course. In addition, I'll also send you a bottle of Southern Comfort, and a hair net.
Super Bouns II: If you crack Maudie B's AA with QQ, you get a copy of Finding Nemo on DVD in addition to a Pauly Painting.
Super Bonus III: If you crack Iggy's AA with QQ, you'll get a Pauly painting and a case of Pabst Blue Ribbon! And I'll send Iggy a case of Guinness.
Super Bonus IV: If you crack HDouble's AA with QQ, you'll get a Pauly painting and a copy of The Big Lebowski on DVD.
Super Bonus V: If you crack any of the previous winners' (My brother, Chris Halverson and Bad Blood) AA with QQ, I will send you a copy of Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance and a Pauly painting.
And in all fairness... if any of the bonus bloggers get their AA cracked this weekend, I'll send them a Pauly painting.
