I've lost count of the WWdN tourneys, but I think we're near 30 now, right? I must admit, I really look forward to this weekly game, even if it's massively -EV, because it's a minimal investment, and whether I make it deep, Gigli, or bust with the hammer on the bubble, it's always a great time. Here are a few WWdN Tourney news items that I've been meaning to post:
I have finally spoken with the appropriate people at PokerStars, and the first WWdN Tournament of
Champions is ready to go, as soon as I turn in a list of the winners. The date and time for the match will be released
shortly. If you won one of the first eight WWdN tourneys, look for a notice from PokerStars in the coming days.
There will be no WWdN tourney next week, April 25. Instead, I'm teaming up with TripJax for the DADI 5 on April
24, which will feature a whole slew of prizes, including a seat in a $1500 WSOP event! All the details are at the Donkeys Always Draw Invitational blog. Because this is a WSOP satellite, the
buy-in is $28, rather than $11, but the prizes are sweet and make a nice overlay. However, if the buy-in is out of your
budget, don't worry: the regularly scheduled WWdN tourney will be back on May 2.
I'm putting the WWdN
Thursday games on a break. While I've come to really look forward to the weekly games, playing twice a week, every
week, without any sort of break, was starting to take too much time away from my family. I'm going to set the West
Coast games up for once a month, just like the Eurofriendly Fridays (which needs to happen this week, I've just
realized.) However, for those of you who want to play with the regulars on thursdays, you can look for NOT WWdN in the
tourney lobby, and I think you'll be happy with what you find.
Now, questions: how many people would be
interested in playing a higher buy-in tournament every couple of months, like $22 or $33? How many people would be
interested in the occasional heads-up challenge?
Hope to see you all tonight. Let's get it over 100 for a
two-table pay out!
