The chronicles of an online poker player

Instant Tragedy

The BBT is back…

And once again Alcanthang and Full Tilt Poker are absolutely AMAZING!

I’ve participated in I think almost all of the BBT series, have been lucky to qualify for the TOC’s and surrounded by very skilled players.

I truly believe that if you can win, in our group of friends and donkeys, you will do well in any event anywhere.

Tonight I was very honored to play in the BBT Invitational.

The Invitational: Sundays at 19:00ET
The last ToC qualifying event is the Sunday evening Invitational, 6 events fielded by many of your favorite poker bloggers, players, and media personalities. Full Tilt has invited a lot of old school poker bloggers to battle the younger generation, the mainstream media, and a few surprise celebrities. It’s a great chance to rail the writers you’ve been reading for years while they play for one of the two ToC entries up for grabs in each tournament.

Just be be involved with this competition was an honor and then I’m in the elite 79 players tonight to start the fun.

Look folks, EVERY starting table was a TV table, at one point I had Lucko, Otis, Smokkee, Poker Shrink , Michelle Lewis at my table.

I spewed some chips and went out in the fifties.  It is still going on now.

Look, I’ll be honest, I was VERY rusty as the work on the book and another project has had me off my game.  But just sitting down to the computer and knowing that I had a chance to win a portion of $2,000 in prizes to the top 15 players were good enough for me.

The other events in the BBT are :

Poker from the Rail Series: Mondays at 22:00ET
On April 19th we are introducing our new Poker From the Rail tournament series and everyone is welcome to join us for this deepstack NLHE event with a buyin of $24+2 (or token) starting at 22:00ET. In addition to first place money from the prizepool, the winner will earn an entry into the BBT Tournament of Champions. The Poker From the Rail tournament will run each Monday from April 19th through May 24th.

The Mookie: Wednesdays at 22:00ET
The Mookie tournament is one of the longest running blogger-hosted events on Full Tilt. It’s been running so long, in fact, that the original blogger-host has retired and the tournament is now being hosted by the folks at Buddy Dank Radio who have been running a fine game. This tournament, also a deepstack NLHE format, runs each Wednesday at 22:00ET with a $10+1 buyin. Every Mookie winner between April 21st and May 26th will also earn an entry into the BBT Tournament of Champions.

The Invitational: Sundays at 19:00ET
The last ToC qualifying event is the Sunday evening Invitational, 6 events fielded by many of your favorite poker bloggers, players, and media personalities. Full Tilt has invited a lot of old school poker bloggers to battle the younger generation, the mainstream media, and a few surprise celebrities. It’s a great chance to rail the writers you’ve been reading for years while they play for one of the two ToC entries up for grabs in each tournament.

And closing it all out with the :

Blogger Battle Royale: Sunday June 6th
After the ToC is one final event: the Blogger Battle Royale, a freeroll thank you to all the participating bloggers. The stakes: a $2,000 WSOP Bracelet Race package and another $2,000 in cash. The Battle Royale is open to any blogger who actively participates in the BBT. Qualifying is simple: put the BBT badge (available at the soon to be created BBT webpage) on your blog and play in a Mookie or Poker from the Rail tournament and you’re in. (Please note: your blog must have been created prior to April 15 to be eligible.)

So what are you waiting for?

Get INTO THE GAME NOW!

Good luck to those who participate, unless I’m at their table, then …

Let’s GET IT ON!
