Words fail...


Some time around 2am EST amidst the excitement of planting the biggest, juiciest cherry I could ever imagine atop my very own BBT2 sundae, a funny thing happened...I was reminded that despite any progress I had made as a poker player, my blogging skills are laughably unrefined. I wanted to throw up a picture of the final leaderboard--much like the one above and complete with obligatory BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOM! header--but damned if i couldn't manage to get into my own blog without my computer freezing up. Then when I did, the best I could do was attach a file list screenshot (not very exciting). Finally I quit, after several unsuccessful attempts to preserve this, my single greatest achievement in poker-to-date, for all of posterity.
This morning, a miraculous thing happened....my friends did it for me.
As I sit and write this, I am still humbled by the compliments and respect that have been paid to me through the various blogs and comments across our not-so-little-anymore blogging community. Elated to say the least, but humbled.
My sincerest thanks go out to Al, Mookie, Don and of course, my boy Hoy. You guys have put together something pretty spectacular here. And to all who have offered their congratulatory praise, thank you for helping to remind me that poker is a game of people played with cards...and that this particular group of people is better than most.
It will be an honor and privilege to represent you all in Australia.
Thank you.

Congratulations on a well-earned title. I hope I can grow up to be like you some day. Please be sure to update us via your blog regularly and often when you go Down Under. And come back so we can get revenge (lol!). Preferably bringing back with you jewelry and cash profits, to go with the guaranteed memories. Happy holidaze!
