I almost feel like I should have redacted Skidoo's name there. Almost. nh Fuel and xfer of your massive winnings made on FTP.

That was fun. I should come up with more junk to give away.

Speaking of things that make me LOL, the last hand of WSOP Event #2 was reee-DONKalus. The recap, from PokerNews (official real time news provider or something like that of the WSOP) --

Grant Hinkle has the button in Seat 10. He raises to 350,000. Akenhead tries to pop it up again, this time by raising to 1.2 million. Hinkle moves all in and Akenhead quickly calls. Here it is! The moment we've been waiting for over the last two hours.

Akenhead is the one who is all in. The hands are opened:

Hinkle: {10-Diamonds} {4-Diamonds}
Akenhead: {A-Clubs} {K-Hearts}

Wow, a stone bluff from Hinkle and now he's in very rough shape. The shouting has begun from the gallery, who have all suddenly found that last reserve of energy to remain on their feet. Side bets are being made on what the flop will contain. Here it comes...

{10-Hearts} {4-Hearts} {10-Spades}

Pandemonium in the Milwaukee's Best Light All-In Lounge! Akenhead is dead to running cards. The crowd is absolutely floored. Akenhead cannot believe his misfortune. He knows he's on thin ice. And just to add insult to injury...

{10-Clubs}

Hinkle makes quad tens! Akenhead is drawing dead. The meaningless river {5-Spades}

Grant Hinkle is the winner of Event #2. He earns $831,462 and a coveted gold bracelet for his triumph. The winning hand was the all-powerful {10-Diamonds} {4-Diamonds}.
completes the hand. Akenhead is eliminated in second place and collects $520,219.

Live poker, so f---ing rigged.

BTW, great reporting so far, PokerNews crew.

One last thing. I got three pieces of mail today. Three pieces total.

No bills.

No credit card offers.

In the mail today, I got one offer from the IP, one offer from the Rio and one offer from Harrah's.

Yesterday, I got offers from the Venetian and the IP.

You think Vegas is hurting for business?

I have been getting amazing deals for months now. This week, I got one for Tunica that included two airline tickets along with the usual room and assorted and sundries.
