Blogger Donkey Race 2008

I think there'll be enough interest, so here goes.

Blogger (& friends) donkey race. Venetian private tournament this Saturday.

15 buyin.

Pick five donkeys. I'm not going to list everyone who's planning on playing, but you can get a pretty good idea from checking out Pokerstage. He says about 70, could be as many as 90. Any entrant is eligible, blog or no.

Also pick an alternate (or two if you're not going to be in Vegas) if you wish. If one of your chosen donkeys does not start the tournament, your alternate will be subbed in.

Points are awarded for a final table finish -

13 points for picking the winner
10 for 2nd
8 for 3rd
6 for 4th
5 for 5th
4 for 6th
3 for 7th
2 for 8th
1 for 9th
Highest total score wins.

If we have 10 or fewer entrants, winner take all
11-20, will pay 2 places
21-40, will pay 3 places

You do NOT need to be present to play or win. You do NOT have to be playing the tournament. You do NOT need to pick yourself. You will pick Da Rooster because he will win, but doing so is NOT mandatory.

Entries can be posted in the comments below or emailed to me at res/ipsa/poker/at/hot/mail/dot/communism without the slashes (no spaces either). Cutoff for online entries is 11:59 pm Thursday (not that far away). You can also enter in person in Vegas. Changes are allowed up to tournament start time - if you're not going it might not be a bad idea to have a cell phone buddy who is, since I'm not bringing a computer.

Also, if any of y'all would mention this in your blog posts today it might bump up the pool of entrants, since not everybody stops by this dark, dusty corner of the blogosphere every day... TIA.

EDIT: FYI, according to LJ's blog, she won't be in Vegas, so those picking her might want to reconsider or name alternates.
