Thanks to Maudie for the T-shirt design!
4 days until Vegas. How about an update? I just got off the phone with the Poker Prof. It's confirmed... Evelyn Ng will be attending the breakfast Meet & Greet. As you know Charlie Shoten, Ron Rose, and Tom McEvoy are all expected to be there as well. Wow. We now have four professional players to hang out and talk shop. As I said before, being able to pick the stellar minds of some great players will be an amazing opportunity to help improve all of our games and also a chance to ask questions about life as a professional gambler.
I just picked up a prize for last place. So for the poor blogger KO'd first... don't fear! You won't be coming out to Vegas for nothing. I will reveal the prize on Saturday. I will be running a Hilton Sisters Challenge during the tournament and online at Party Poker on the same day. Stay tuned for details.
We will also be getting some free stuff. The guys over at All N Poker are giving out t-shirts to the final table. The online site Check n Raise will be giving everyone a free jacket, in addition to awarding the winner of the tournament a $100 bonus to play on their site.
What: WPBT Holiday ClassicI hope I didn't miss anybody. We have a few names on the maybe list and a few on waiting list. Stay tuned for more updates. Any questions? Shoot me an email. I'll be sending around a group email in the next few days. Check your inboxes.
