Hey, wouldn't Absinthe Rolls be awesome with turkey and gravy?
In other news...
In the past four major tournament series he's played (two L.A. Poker Classics and two Legends of Poker), our fellow blogger Absinthe has made at least one final table in three out of the four series. You'll recall, he won Event #1 of the 2006 L.A. Poker Classic for a tidy sum. In the 2007 Legends of Poker, Absinthe chopped a big event for a nice score.
Last night, Absinthe clawed his way to another final table of a $545 No-Limit Hold'em event that started with more than 500 players. He did this after running into aces twice after they were in the money.
As he made the final table long after I was already in bed (and about the the time my kid was waking up), I'm not sure of his chip position relative to the table. I'm also not sure of the payouts beyond point. Regardless, it's another final table where he is guaranteed to at least quintuple his money.
So, here's to a blogger who consistently gets it done.
