Seeing as how we would have spent the prior evening showering our significant other with a romantic evening, I seriously doubt even the most whipped dude out there will have trouble getting a pass to go.
Also, this is a rebuy tournament. It seems that the WSOP- and WPT- induced craze of no limit tournaments have generated tournaments that follow the WSOP/WPT format, one without rebuys. So, this will be new to most of the participants, and presumably, they won't appropriately adjust their strategy. There is lenghty discussion of the adjustments needed in all poker tournament books, and I hope to write a summary between now and Feb 15.
