WPBT Winter Classic Update – Last Longer

Posted by in Poker, Vegas, WPBT

The lovely and talented VinNay has volunteered to take on coordination of the last longer. (Should that be in capitals? I feel like it I put it in capitals it makes it like a porn film. I’m going without capitals.) VinNay has changed things up a bit this year, moving to teams of 2 with a $20 buyin. You want in on this? You have to get your buddy and then you either: Post your team on the WPBT Facebook event, in the thread VinNay started. Tweet at him –…read more

WPBT Winter Classic Weekend Approaches!

Posted by in Poker, Vegas, WPBT

We’re a month out from the WPBT Winter Classic weekend! Looking forward to getting together with old friends. Looks to be a smaller crowd this year, unless of course you’re planning on going but you haven’t adjusted your RSVP to indicate such, in which case do get on that. And if you’re on the fence; get off it and just come. It’s Vegas. You’ll love it. There’s some cool stuff in the works; including appearances by a couple of old-school bloggers – one of which being Carter aka @cubanlinks. Some…read more

WPBT Winter Classic 2012

Posted by in Poker, Vegas, WPBT

Oh yes, it’s that time again. If you missed the tweets earlier this month, the date is set for December 1, at Aria. We’ll have the regular tournament schedule they use (minus the rebuys) and stay tuned for details on last longer team coordination. We’ll also have some games going for us on Friday the 30th, though this time I’m moving it to earlier in the day – say mid-afternoon; as the past couple of years it’s been near impossible to round up enough folks to start a table around…read more

WPBT 2011 Recap

Posted by in Poker, Vegas, WPBT

Man, someone is behind on a trip report. But at least I can get it out before 2011 ends, right? That’s progress. Kinda. Trip reports are weird. If you were there, you don’t need me to tell you what happened. If you weren’t there, you probably don’t want to hear about every little detail. WE HAD SO MUCH FUN TOO BAD YOU WEREN’T THERE. Right? Right. So. I’ll say this: HUGE thanks for CaityCaity, Jordan, and JoeSpeaker for organizing the assorted side-events. Big thanks to the crew at Pokerist.com for…read more

#wpbt final details + Pokerist.com Sponsorship!

Posted by in Poker, Vegas, WPBT

It’s time! If you’re not already on your way to the airport, perhaps you’re counting down the hours… either way, we’ll be seeing you soon. Here’s the schedule again along with some exciting news! Thursday: Sherwood Forest Bar at Excal – If there’s one thing I’ve learned in my years of organizing, it’s pointless to try and put a start time on the drinking. I suggest keeping an eye on the #wpbt hashtag, you’ll see when folks start gathering. I’d estimate anywhere from 5-8 as a start – really depends…read more

Gamble for Good #wpbt

Posted by in Poker, Vegas, WPBT

I was reading yesterday about a woman lamenting how her generous friend would pay for them to both go to dinner, spa days, etc. and how it made the friend feel bad because she couldn’t afford these things but her friend could, and as a result, was always paying. She wanted it to stop. And having been on both sides of that coin, I understood her feeling but also knew that the generous friend was paying because she could, because she wanted the company, and at no point was she…read more

WPBT Update – 3 days

Posted by in Poker, Vegas, WPBT

We’ve reached the point where you start counting down the number of “sleeps” before touching ground in Las Vegas. Many of you I’ll be seeing this Thursday. I can’t wait. My co-twit Chilly summed up our weekend plans thustly: Couple of changes to that – one, Steel Panther sadly canceled their show Saturday night, so it’s off the table. For Sunday, I’m still on the hunt for a place that could accomodate a large group of people but not make us all share one tab (trouble) or having a thousands-dollars…read more

WPBT Update: Last Longer

Posted by in Poker, Vegas, WPBT

Good news folks! The lovely and talented Katie B has volunteered to coordinate a last-longer contest for us this year. Same drill that you’re familiar with – put together your team of 3, assign a cute name, then post that info in the comments of this post. When we arrive in Vegas, each team will need to give Katie $15. Winner payouts will be determined based on the number of teams entering. Thanks Katie for taking this one on! And now, in the remember when category… While I’ve never taken…read more

Greetings degenerates! Now that November is upon us (holy crap, can you believe it’s already NOVEMBER? Jeez…) ANYWAY, now that it’s November, that means we’re fast approaching the WPBT Weekend – woo hoo! To address a couple of questions that have come up in the past week: 1. Yes, you can still get a room at Aria. I’m sending requests in until they tell me we’re cut off. If you’ve requested a room and haven’t heard back yet, please drop me a line. Everyone should have a confirmation letter (except…read more

WPBT Winter Classic 2011

Posted by in Poker, Vegas, WPBT

Last year I announced plans for the Winter Classic on July 2nd. It would be cute to announce this year’s plan on the same day, but that’s a Saturday this year and it doesn’t really work for me. Today I have a laptop and a train ride in which to type away. Also, this year holds the record for single most easily booked event EVER. EVER. I cannot speak higly enough of Adam Altwies and the crew at Aria Poker. Immediate response to my request, and immediately looked for ways…read more
