Bad news, and good news.
We had something good going on for the poker scene in the metro, but sadly, it was inevitable that someone will show up and destroy what was so lovingly created with the best intentions, and turn it into an abomination driven by greed and selfishness.
The State of Mind is still alive and will adjust to these tough and challenging times. That place where it used to be is officially no longer associated in any way with it. Several people paid a dear price for that, and the person responsible should, in my opinion, be held liable for anything that may go wrong in the future. The man who destroyed everything and is still continuing to do so until now HAS to be accountable.
anyway, on a lighter note, congratulations to Barbiemanila, one of the best poker players in our shores today, for winning fourth place in the biggest poker tournament ever organized and recognized by PAGCOR, taking home a cool 120+ thousand pesos!
i hope we all continue to work together to make the poker scene grow.
in the meantime, we'll keep you posted.
