I bumped the start time back an hour, as a few people mentioned that being slightly more convenient for them. Like the first one, this is a freeroll so you've got absolutely nothing to lose and, oh my, so very much to gain. Remember, too, that I'm adding an overlay to the overall points leaders when the first series is done (3 freerolls followed by a buy-in tournament), with the following prizes to the top 3 at the end of the first leg:
1st place: $60 + $25 Gift Certificate to Omaha Steaks
2nd place: $25 + copy of High Low Split Poker, Seven-Card Stud and Omaha Eight-Or-Better for Advanced Players by Ray Zee
3rd place: $15
I mean, come on people, if a monkey like me can win the first one only Jebus knows how well you would do.
I'm also going to add a wrinkle for this one. Starting at 8 PM CST (an hour before the tournament start), I'll be sitting at an $5 Omaha PL Sit n Go table (my username on Noble is scurvydog). If you knock me out of the SnG, you get a $10 Amazon gift certificate. I was hoping to get more hot blogger on blogger ring game action going last week but didn't organize it well and everyone got dumped out of the tournament chat when the tournament finished. So come take a shot at me at the SnG table. We'll squeeze as many in as possible before (or after)the tourney, with a bounty on my scurvy-ridden head for each one. Until, you know, you people break me and I have to go back to peddling my ass on South Congress.
Leaderboard is mostly done, save a little formatting. Thanks for bearing with me until everything is up and running at TPTK.com.
In other news, I got a new desktop PC for home yesterday. As much as I like shiny gadgets and tricknology, I'm also kind of stubborn and will continue to use something as long as its functional and does what I need it to do. I'd had my old one five or six years, it was pretty clunky at time, still running Windows ME, would go through spells where it'd periodically freeze up exactly once shortly after booting, etc. But, you know, it worked. So I kept using it. And kept using it. And kept using it.
But Dell finally wore me down with assorted deals so now I've got a sleek, shiny new computer. I'm keeping the old
All of which my wife is finding infinitely amusing, especially yesterday when I was still getting used to it, grabbing the wrong mouse and/or typing away on the keyboard, staring quizzically at the screen, monkey brow furrowed, confused as to why what I was typing wasn't appearing where it should.
