BBT5 004: A Little Somethin' Somethin', For The Brothas Who Be Frontin'

Goodness gracious, look what I backed into.

So I'm the first one in the second half of the pool, and Jim McManus, author of the awesome poker book Positively Fifth Street, was right in behind me. And let's be perfectly clear what this prize was. It was $500 that I didn't have to risk a bit of my own money to get.

It was also a 1 in 4 chance at a WSOP package.

It was also a 1 in 8 chance at a Main Event package.

Are you kidding? I get to play for this?

Seriously? Thank you, Al.

Here's the competition thus far:

Seat 1. JJOK.
Seat 2. Maigrey.
Seat 3. VinNay.
Seat 4. xkm1245.
Seat 5. dignitasODEE.
Seat 6. All In At 420.
Seat 7. hoyazo.
Seat 8. KeepFloppin.
Seat 9. NY Rambler
Seat 10. April
Seat 11. oossuuu754
Seat 12. LJ
Seat 13. Julius_Goat
Seat 14. Jim McManus

Good luck to us all. By which I mean, me.
