What: WWdN: Donegal Invitational
When: Friday, November 4th. 7:00 PM EST
Tournament number: 14391236
It's hard to find a starting time that can accomodate everyone who wants to play, but the 7:00 PM tourney a couple of weeks ago drew the largest field, so I'm trying that time again this week. I know that it's not the best start time for West coasters, but if I set the start time much later than that, it blows it for almost all of the people East of us. In an effort to accomodate as many people as possible, I'm going to add a game for us on Thursdays, which I'll call the WWdN West Coast Warm-up, unless someone can come up with a better name. It will run as long as there are people interested.

If you play a lot of online poker against total strangers, the social element of the game is largely lost. That's a real shame, because when I play with friends, I always have a good time, win or lose. That's the goal of the WWdN tourneys, and I'm sure Dr. Pauly would agree. Check out last week's live blog to get a sense of what I'm talking about:
6:39 PM - The tournament is shocked into silence as we learn that the blogfather has busted. GG, Iggy.
6:44 PM - I finally got to checkraise! w00t!
6:45 PM - I'm sweating PokerGeek's table, and -- no shit -- they had THE HAMMER the same time we had THE HAMMER on my table. I think that's a goocher.
7:13 PM - Bouncin' around the room: Ferris and Riley were playing really rough in the hallway behind me, with the barking and the running around and the wrestling . . . I guess it was too much for Ferris, because she just walked into the room and flopped down at my feet. Her little dog head is resting on my foot now :)
8:05 PM - Spaceman just made another set with pocket rockets, and busted penneriii. Spaceman has 18100 now, and lept over patrickjst to take second place. GRobman is still the man with 25089.
Penner42 said: three sets in one orbit? Must be nice.
Spaceman said: I'll take what I can get, Alan :)
EVDevil03, who is clinging to life with 4785, dryly observed: I just want to get out of this table alive.
See? The biggest homegame in the world. :)
If anyone has suggestions or comments about the WWdN games, I would love to hear them. See you tomorrow!
