Vegas Blogger Tournament

So the Vegas trip is getting closer. Badblood and Maudie are in. Maudie created this cool chip design. She's turning it into a t-shirt in honor of the first ever Live Poker Blogger NL Tourney. It's becoming known as the Las Vegas Holiday Classic. As everyone knows by now, the tourney is going to be held in Vegas at Sam's Town Casino. We have almost 30 seats filled. The tourney is going to be on Saturday, Dec. 11th at about 1pm The buy in is $50 ($45 prize pool + $5 for the dealer toke). I'm getting really excited as the days go on. It's going to a big party with all the poker bloggers. Even a few pros might play. Supposedly Charlie Shoten (link courtesy of the Poker Prof) will be there. My brother, The Poker Prof, and Sam’s Town poker room manager, Dick Gatewood have all done a great job in setting this up. Many thanks to all of them. The Poker Prof says there's going to be a complimentary continental breakfast the day of the tournament. We'll get a chance to talk to some of the pros. Charlie is trying to convince other professional players to attend. The WPT's Five Diamonds Tournament will be going on at the Bellagio that week. Tom McEvoy who is a WSOP Champion might be at the event too. He won the main event in 1983. How cool is that! There might be some bounties at the tourney too. Dick is being really cool with hosting this event for us. He's even willing to arrange room reservations if you need it. Who will win??
