A quick note of congratulations to a couple of friends who qualified for the Main Event of the WSOP this weekend.
PokerStars ran a 200 seat guarantee for the ME this weekend with satellites all week long.
Congratulations to IGGY and Brian the Pro who both won a seat.
We'll be sweating both and hoping Brian will be bringing some of that WSOP cash to a homegame near us.
I got the note from Brian early this morning:
Ship it... Won my WSOP 2008 Main event seat last night on that minefield called the 200 Main Event Seat Guarantee...
See some of you in Vegas sirs...
And here's Iggy's last post, short, sweet, and uber- in its own way:
Monday, June 16, 2008 Stars 8000 runners.
226 win a ME seat.
I played the best weak-tight poker of my life.
Nine drunken hours later.
On a whim, I'm in the WSOP Main Event.

I'm playing in a Stars freeroll for a seat next week. Wish me luck. I'd love to stack these fools in Vegas!
