Your Standard Update

If you’ve been reading for awhile, then you know how much I love numbered lists…

1. All the donations coming in for Alexander are great. We have raised over $300 and learned about what kinds of things we can do for him to get him up to speed with the other kids in his school. None of these people asked to have their name mentioned, but they all deserve it. Jason Senti, Mark Lazarchic, Wedding Day Sparklers, Foam Records, Poker Joker, Paul Skjerseth, Dan McCabe, John “GStacks”Hayes, and Caden Logan have all been very generous. If any of you ever need anything from me, just say the word.

¬†2. The Spring Poker Classic has started and I’m already up for the series. I cashed in the $2k lammers cash satellite last night. I bought in twice, so I made $1,560 for the evening, a nice start to the series. These cash satellites are great and I would play today as well but I am going to the Timberwolves game with my wife. Thanks to my pal Kou Vang for the Wolves tickets and good luck to him in the High Roller event tonight. Starting tomorrow I will be playing everything.

3. The Pocket Fives Poker Tour is ready to announce our first pro. (Insert drum roll in your head here) And the winner is …. (more drumroll) … Kou Vang! Kou made over $120,000 in tournament winnings¬†at Running Aces last year, and he’s a great guy to have representing the Pocket Fives Tour in Minnesota. We’re glad to have him on board, and we’re looking forward to putting a bounty on his head during our Celebrity Bounty event on April 5th. We will be announcing two more pros for the celebrity bounty event in the next week.

4. Molly Mossey has signed on as our local pro for the LIPS Ladies Poker Tour event that is part of the Pocket Fives series. The Ladies event will happen on Sunday April 6th and Molly will be playing and covered in Pocket Fives gear! We’re honored to have her on board and look forward to working with her more in the future.

5. The schedule for the Pocket Fives event will be out in the next few days. We have it ready to go, we are just waiting for the graphics team at Running Aces to put a shine on it so that we can all release it at once. Look for it this week!

6. The Horseshoe in Council Bluffs tweeted out part of my book cover today as a little pic attached to an announcement of one of their tournaments. I’m not real mad at them, but I do wish they would at least tweet the whole cover or a link to a place to buy the book. That graphic was definitely created by Adam Stemple (@hatfield13) and I’m sure he would appreciate it if they were to at least tweet the whole cover so we can get some book sales. It was a great cover design though, I can see why they would swipe it! I’ve found my articles in hundreds of places around the web, sometimes with people claiming they wrote them, and it’s just too much work to try to get them all pulled down, though I should probably send a form letter to all of those people one of these days.

    Yeah, I’ll be there. It was ridiculous watching Budinger, he was a mess. The team really just didn’t have it together, but I thought they had a shot in the third.

    I was at the wolves game last night too. They got back to an even score for a little bit. Playing PLO tonight?
