A Wyatt By Any Other Name Is Not The Same

As I told Speaker... I apologize to all Hollyweird type celeb fans that will have to deal with their idols and overpaid divas naming their kids Wyatt over the next couple of years. Its tough being a trendsetter.

Me. Cabin. Leinie 24 pack. Ice Cream. Turkey. Captain. Golf.

See you after the holidays :)
If you're going to be out of town like myself, please make sure you're throwing a buy in towards the Darfur effort at PokerStars this Sunday. In case you haven't already read about it here is Pauly's plea to get more of us blogger tournament donkeys involved:
PokerStars is running the Ocean's Thirteen Darfur Charity Tournament next Sunday afternoon at 3:30pm ET. PokerStars is teaming up with the cast of Ocean's Thirteen to help stop the suffering in the war-torn region of Darfur in the Sudan. If you have not been paying attention, over 400,000 people have already been killed. They launched Not On Our Watch. Their mission is to... "focus global attention and resources to stop and prevent mass atrocities. Drawing on the powerful voice of citizen artists, activists, and cultural leaders, our mission is to generate lifesaving humanitarian assistance and protection for the vulnerable, marginalized, and displaced."
PokerStars is donating $1 million and you can help out by playing in two diffeent charity events. You have a shot to win a ticket to the Ocean's Thirteen premiere in Los Angeles. See below for specific details.

Overview of the Ocean's Thirteen Darfur Charity Tournament:These tournaments are special re-buy tournaments - the entire prize pool will be matched by PokerStars and donated to the Darfur relief efforts. At the conclusion of the event the prize pool, which will be temporarily awarded to the 1st place finisher, will be removed from the 1st place finisher's account. The amount will then be matched by PokerStars and sent forward to the Darfur charity. Thank you for participating — go re-buy crazy! — it's for a good cause.
Good luck!

Buy-in: $10 plus rebuys.
Prizes: Top 4 receive tickets to June 5th premiere in Los Angeles plus 2 nights hotel and $2k for travel/spending. Top 18 receive autographed copy of "Oceans 13" DVD.
Total prize pool will go to charity. PokerStars will match the donation. The tournament is open to all players. Good luck!

I managed only my second final table last night in the BloggerPokerChallenge, getting bottom money while watching Zeem run over everything in his path. Checks are on the way for the WSOP ticket purchase, once I cash those in I'll be purchasing $1,500 in tournament chips for the WSOP Event #42 and hope to have more then just a drawn out story for those who were gracious enough to back me in the event.
Thanks for dropping by, now I'm going to go enjoy some tasty cinnamon crusted bagels that were just delivered :)
