The weekly email update went out last night and I will go ahead and post it here. If you are interested in playing in the tournament or if you want to get added to the email distribution, send me an email.
Good Afternoon Players -
We are now one week into the tournament and four seats at the final table have been claimed! Winners of first round tables held to date are:
Table #1: Thad Davis Table #2: Michael Padilla Table #3: Kevin Swantkowski Table #4: John Tugwell
Remaining seats in the tournament are as follows:
Date seats remaining Thur Apr 21 0 Sun May 8 7 Wed May 18 7 Wed Jun 1 7 Sat June 4 (table 1) 2 Sat June 4 (table 2) 5
Remember that you may pre-register for as many first round tables as you please, including both tables on the final saturday of the tournament. The final day's tables will be run sequentially and will not overlap.
Each entry to the tournament costs $120 and if you care to skip ahead to the Final Table you may pay $1200 and buy a seat directly.
Note that as of this writing, the game scheduled for thursday night is full. Nonetheless, if you would like to be on the waiting list or if you want to be available in case of a last minute cancellation (not quite the same thing, I think), please contact me with your phone number and I will add you to the list.

Please contact me if you have any questions and I hope to see all of you at a poker the table in the near future.
Have any writers/readers of this blog ever accomplished anything in poker? Never heard of any of you, but you all give advice and analysis as if you were poker authors. Where can I find some background on you guys? Tournament cashes? High stakes games? Anything?
Dear Anonymous, You want some background information? Try this on for size, biatch. I played a $5 sng on Pokerstars the other night, had 5 pocket pairs in a row, and got busted before the first round of blinds were over. How's that for tournament results? I was only 7 spots away from a $4 profit!!!
But you all forgot about the time I put $5 in a nickel slot machine at Flamingo in Vegas and won $50 (1000 nickels!) on the second spin.
Then I sat down and proceeded to absolutely RUN OVER - nay, f*cking STEAMROLL - a $2-4 game full of dumb college kids, foreigners, and drunks until 5:00 in the morning. I don't need any credentials. I got the whole $187 in my pocket, bitches.
