The BBC 500

The BBC500 these past weeks have been packed to capacity. 40 seats filled each night, with maybe a dozen other players sitting around waiting for the ring game to start. Even the street outside was jammed with cars, taking up two lanes of that major thoroughfare.

And to think, the first major tournament i played in 5 months ago, a 50-seater, filled 41 seats, and it was the biggest ever back then. Those were the days...

Hard to believe we'd be doing it weekly after such a short period of time. But anyway, the BBC500 is arguably the best regular Multi-Table Tournament in our poker community today. Pretty soon we are going to have to move to a bigger, better venue for this tourney, since 40 seats seem to be not enough anymore. hmmm...

Congratulations to the recent winners of this awesome tournament. JJ the Duke, Skippy winning it TWICE in 3 weeks, and The Attorney winning his 2nd BBC500 just last friday.

Soon, we wont have enough space to host this tournament. Hey, i'm not even afraid to bet that soon, a DAILY 40 seater will be a reality.

This is just the tip of the iceberg my friends! There will come a time (very soon!) when we will be up to our noses in poker tourneys and games and we wont even know what to do!

Quote of the Day

  • The best poker I've ever played has always entailed peace. A relaxed comfort. Eyes open, ears open, radar up. Absorbing my opponent's every message. Taking them as they come. Not mixing what those messages are with what I want them to be. It's like an aerial view. A view from above the myriad luck-dependent reactions of those many people who never gain such a peace. And when you gain that view, that peace - when you'd rather have the truth, no matter how disappointing, over a false hope, no matter how desirable - then you're a player. The hand you're on slips into a stream of thousands of other hands, no one of which, because of your lofty view, seems unduly important, no false fearful emotions rise within you. When you gain the peace of lofty perspective, you're a player, and when you're a player, you're free.- from "King of a Small World" by Rick Benett
