BBT5 002: Oh Say, TOC, By The Dawn's Early Light

BBT's off and running! So far let's see who is filling out the 24-seat freeroll for six freaking WSOP tickets, including a whopping 3 main event seats.

Seat 1. JJOK. This guy won one of the two main prizes by taking last year's tournament of champs, so naturally he went out and won the very first tournament of BBT5. By the way, if you are keeping track at home, that means that JJOK has flat out won about 50% of the BBT tournaments he's entered in the last two years. Think he runs good when it counts, or do you think he's just a Jackie Chan-level tournament god?

Seat 2. Maigrey. You want old-school? BBT gots it some old-school. Maigrey had a monster stack from the first break of the inaugural invitational to the end, and is sitting in the cat-bird seat after beating everybody except for JJOK, who is apparently as easy to kill as Wolverine.

Seat 3. VinNay. Vin's hand held up against the big draw of LJ (pvanhairbo), and he played his big stack to victory in the first Poker From the Rail tourney.

Seat 4. xkm1245. I don't know this guy, but he faded 122 runners to take down the Mookie, so he clearly doesn't have to work on Thursday mornings. Give me your blog if you've got one xkm1245, and I'll link you up.

The second freeroll is coming up, with over 100 runners, so frankly I like my odds. Not of winning, no. But my odds of making it really deep before dusting off my stack in a QQ vs. AK confrontation, leaving me blinking at the screen? Excellent. I would also put high odds on me falling in love with TP2K. But hey, somebody (and so

Listen up, you donkeys, there's only 23 seats left. You'd better get in there and play because this just got real. We're talking Main Event.
