Two years?

Well it's been awhile, that's for sure.

I pretty much gave up on all the online games, well before the netteller and other services were shut out of the US market.

I'll be back when we get legal access again.

Poker tables

I've been kicking around the idea of building my own poker table, because I don't have enough crap in my basement.

Here are some links to some good resources. Most found with a quick Google, but I'll put this post here, if nothing else to save me time later.

Home Poker Tourney Lots of links to other table sites, as well as the original PC Potato

patmulry.com home of the ultimate portable poker table. Interesting folding design, and portable wooden legs. Plans in Adobe.

Mark Junell's table. Very nice, well worth the effort.

Flash or animated gif on how to build a table.

Scott Keen Poker Forum including a poker table area. Good read.

Colorado Poker Championship


First of all, get rid of the blinking border. It's annoying.

Saturday , January 29th. Lone Tree ( South Denver, maybe 45 minutes from DIA)

From the web site (in small font):
There is no cost to participate in the tournament. Those people signing up for
the full day event will be automatically registered for the tournament, unless
we are advised otherwise. Please click here to notify us if you plan to attend
the seminar, reception and dinner but do not wish to participate in the
tournament. Additionally, if you wish to participate in the tournament but not
attend any other part of the event, click here to register. If seats are
available, you will be notified. Please note that as this is a charity event, if
a seat is available and you participate, while it is not required, we would
encourage you to consider making a meaningful donation to YouthBiz.
So, you could play for free for prizes, which would keep this legal under Colorado law. However, I expect if you really want to play, you will need to pony up the $350 for all the events, and a automatic seat.

For $350, you get:
2:00 p.m. 4:00 p.m. - Seminar by Howard Lederer
A complete set of Howard's DVD's, a $120 value!

4:00 p.m. – 5:45 p.m. - Reception/Buffet Dinner Tournament starts at 6.

$100 gets you just the seminar.
