Any poker fans?

Well...I don't know if anyone here is a poker fan, but I know it's been a craze sweeping the nation the last few years, and my Uncle has been in a few big tournaments in Vegas. Only three to be exact. His first was a year ago and he took 36th place and then a couple months ago he finished 5th!! And then....Last night he finished in a BIG tournament in 2nd FRICKING PLACE!!! Check out the payouts!!!!!

We are all so excited! I wanted him to win it just so I could get a picture of myself wearing the WPT championship bracelet!

Actually, Paullee...Believe it or not, he has never played online! He has only been playing poker for two years!!! Here is a video of an interview with him before play started at the final table yesterday. He talks about never playing online in the interview...

That's awesome Brandt!
Not a poker fan...but an addict. Morels would be my first addiction, but poker is my second. The time spent to give such a nice payout is such a sweet victory. Congrats to your Uncle. Big Time!
