Count Me Out
I will NOT be playing in the PokerStars World Championship of Blogger Poker Playing Online People (I think that's the correct name of the event). This is because poker hates me.
No, not really. At the point when the cards for the PokerStars Event Unmatched in Historical Significance Plus Bloggers are in the air, I will be crawling into my 5th (6th, 7th) Bloody Mary of the day while hoping for a seat in some Vegas sportsbook, while explaining "Tampa 2" coverage to Div and prematurely counting all the money I will make from fading the picks of DonkeyPuncher and Uncle Bracelet.
Were I going to be home in my desert outpost, I would also have to find a computer to play the PokerStars Universal Blogger Pageant because, as you all know, I am now a Mac user and though online reports say a Mac client is on the near horizon for PokerStars, it ain't there yet (no, I am not installing windows on my Mac or paying any fees). Rest assured, I'm looking forward to that day because I've been missing the Crazy Re-Buy like...uh...crazy.
Of course, I will sign up, proudly display the blinky ad and give PokerStars access to my vast readership.
In all sincerity, I love PokerStars and am a little bummed I won't be able to make it this time 'round. Best of luck to all y'all out there and bring home the title of PokerStars Most Excellent Blogging Poker Guy/Gal.
