Happy Easter...thoughts on National Championship FREEROLL

I wanted to drop a quick post to tell everyone HAPPY EASTER ...and all that good stuff.

Bill and I hit the Coushatta Seven Clans event and I was not able to play any of the events as my job has kept me busy, but I was present as we have an office near there so I was able to show up and play the cash games. I am really getting excited about the Million Dollar National Championship FREEROLL as it looks like it will be a major event this year and on everyone's radar. I mean where can The PokerBrat go to play an event in the WSOP to win a bracelet with only 200 players and Johnny Chan and Doyle can't play even if they wanted to. I somehow think that once we get down to the wire, and that fact comes out they "Powers that Be" will somehow come up with some sort of ruling stating that they can in fact play in this years National Championship...something like "anyone with over 10 bracelets also gets to buy in"...mark my words.

I think it will come down to the wire after tracking all the action, and I believe that if you are anywhere in the bottom 10 players in "The Red" on the leaderboard...that you will have to do something in New Orleans in order to get in the FREEROLL. I have lots of friends (including Wild Bill) that are in that hunt and I just think the baseline will be about 110 points and if you are not there come New better get there. I am expecting a HUGE turnout in new Orleans with lots of players coming in to take a shot at that FREEROLL, and I believe that anyone in the 75 point range will have a shot at getting there in they come into New Orleans and play well.

I will see you guys around St Louis...I will be around but wont be playing in any of the events except on weekends...but playing the cash games and sweating all my buddies.

This blog post will be short and sweet...good luck to all my friends in that FREEROLL hunt...gonna be exciting when the end is near.

I have not read any good books in past few weeks, but I cannot recommend GoT (Game of Thrones on HBO) any higher if you haven't seen any of them yet...They rock big time. I am tempted to go buy the books to see if there as good as the show and see what happens to all the characters.

"You'll come to see that a man learns nothing from winning. The act of losing, however, can elicit great wisdom. Not least of which is, uh... how much more enjoyable it is to win. It's inevitable to lose now and again. The trick is not to make a habit of it." Albert Finney as Uncle Henry in "A Good Year"
