Your Good Deed For the Day
If you read this blog, and you like poker, then I strongly recommened you check out the goodies that are up for auction at eBay as part of the fundraiser for little Peyton Novoa. If you scroll down a bit you'll see a big red banner ad that leads you to the ForPeyton
website where you can learn more. You can either make a donation direct or you can bid on merchandise that a number of top poker pros have donated. Want an autographed Phil Ivey Full Tilt basketball jersey? A T-shirt autographed by Phil Hellmuth? A Full Tilt hockey sweater autographed by WPT Player of the Year Gavin Smith? Or, if you want to break my heart, you can bid up the Card Player cover autographed by Isabelle Mercier. I don't know if my 401(k) will be liquidated in time for me to make a ludicrous last-second bid, but maybe the paperwork will come through in time...
Seriously, check it out, you might find something that will dazzle the folks at your neighborhood poker game. You can also make a direct charitable donation if you're not into poker swag. And what better cause can there be than helping out a little girl?
Darn it, that magnificent bastard Al
has the high bid on Isabelle's picture. I have a feeling lots of bidders are lying in the weeds, waiting for the eBay fish to think they've got the object of their desire already in the bag before springing a last-second, soul-crushing bid. Never play eBay chicken with a bunch of degenerate poker players fresh off a long weekend in Vegas.
