If it sounds too good to be true...


You know how the saying goes... "If it sounds too good to be true, then it's probably a scam." Well, not according to Al. I believe the comment I left on his blog was "I just shat myself." And no, this wasn't when I was reading blogs on my treo on the pooper. I mean holy cow. Not many things cheer me up on a Monday morning but this certainly did!

The Battle of Blogger Tournaments held earlier this year was a huge success. Though there were tons of discussions/arguments regarding the points system (mmmmmm, points), all in all, I think everyone would agree that it was a success considering the number of participants, consistency of the bloggers showing up for the events, and just in terms of getting to know bunch of people. I know that I just started blogging late December 2006 but this BBT was how I got to "know" bunch of other bloggers. So, suffice to say that I couldn't wait for BBT2 (or BBTwo) if there ever was going to be another one. Well, Al and FullTilt came through big time... again.

Go read his blog to get the details. But to summarize, there will be 27 events in the next 8 weeks and the winner of each would be entered into a tournament of champions where the 1st place prize of the 27 maximum runners would win a $18,000 Aussie Package. Yeah, that's right. That's EIGHTEEN THOUSAND. DOLLARS.... I'll give you a minute to wipe yourself too...

Craziness. So, all you bloggers and nonbloggers alike (remember, you don't have to be a blogger to play in these events), come and join the madness. That means you, PouringReign and InigoMontoya76. Even you donkeys might have a chance. If you read this blog and you're interested in playing but don't have a FullTilt account, click on the banner to the right and use the bonus code "pokertachi" (shameless marketing plug).

And what's even crazier is that there are many other prizes. Basically, they're giving away money. How can you not participate??? Again, go read Al's blog for more details. But you might want to keep a roll of toilet paper handy... (sorry for all the pooping reference. Just watched SouthPark last night where Bono was #2... you'd get it if you watched it. YEAH YEAH YEAH HELLO HELLO!).

And I'm sure that some of us will keep gunning for the win every time... I say that because there are 27 events... well, if you win, that's one less contestant in the Tournament of Champions. So, let's say you win 3 events. That's one seat for you and 2 less seats for everyone else, thus increasing your chance to win the Aussie package even more. This set up is just downright sick. SICK.

And it all starts this Sunday. Don will be hosting this so start getting your tier 2 tokens... or if you're a cash gamer, start earning your cash to play in these events. No matter what the case is, get in there!

While I would love to win the trip to australia, I would be psyched as long as I'm not the second from bottom money loser I'll be happy. Actually, just kidding. My new goal is to just beat YOU! :)

I guess I am going to have to take these things seriously again.

I am so looking forward to this.

You see, it all makes perfect sense... this is why Bono can do so much good, and still come off as such a piece of shit!

password: donkey. kind of funny actually.

And by the way, Australia is kind of money. It's pretty much the new black right now.

I gotta get my Internet back up (yes, I know that sounds ghetto but I just moved). Should have it up and going by Monday. But if I don't...it's ok to miss the first few tourneys right? I mean, the point is to just win one of them....right? Ok then.

I think you need some therapy on your points addiction.

Pretty sick that the starting times of these events are 3 and 4 am...
Maybe I'll go to sleep early one of those nights...
