2014 / 15 format proposal

Season broken into four quarters, each 5 or 6 weeks long.

Each quarter yields one Champion who earns a top-four seat at final table. (The four “winners” will be seeded by their season-long totals for the finals.)

Final table “wild card” seats 5 thru 8 are determined by season long +/- totals. (If someone wins more than one quarter, the number of wild card seats would be increased.)

Seats 9 and 10 are up for grabs via the usual pre-final table among the also-rans, eligible part-timers, dumpster divers, cheap women etc.

The three breaks between the quarters would allow for some tournament style events (off the scoring chart) to give us some variety while we freeze our asses off in the garage.

I haven’t looked too deeply at a calendar, but if we start in October this would wrap up by about the time we all get sick of each other. Again.

Just thinking here. Anybody got anything to say?


The Speed of Light

Last night was a real pain in the ass. The cards were being dealt at an amazingly fast rate, nearly the speed of light. It really sucked. I could hardly talk to Geno without being interrupted to bet. Seriously, I didn’t come to play poker just to have my conversations be to interrupted all night. Thankfully Bill showed up and put an end to it.

Versace Sunglasses


At first I didn’t know that “Satchi” was Chris’s nickname. Now I know it is and it comes from Versace sunglasses. You guys are so uncouth you hardly got it right. It’s “Sace.” I have corrected the standings to with Sace.
