Schaubs has a nice post. Still no sidebar link. Suck it. I do like his post. I wonder how many people have missed more than one event? I have no idea how you could tell.. perhaps Full Tilt Poker could pull logs or something. I would send eviction notices to people who have missed more than a single event though. It is rude and why put free chips on the table. It gives a HUGE advantage to people who have these guys in position.
I think in hindsite Al must be wondering what the fuck he was thinking with this invitational thing. It is funny. The first week the invites go out and I get a zillion IM messages "WTF DUDE! I am not in it!! I have ______ credentials!!! What was Al thinking!". I of course am like send Al an email or something. I am in it. Fuck you. Heh. No. I was actually very supportive of my friends. Now that week three is in the books I get a hundred IM messages saying "Holy shit! ________ was added to the event but I was not!!! My ________ credentials should make me an instant invite and ___________ has not even blogged in a million years!!! And Michael Craig sucks!!!!". Ok. I made that last part up. Fuck you Craig! (As A side note I had a dream the other night that I called Michael Craig on the phone and he gave me awesome advice. WTF?!?!?!).
I am really sorry to the people who feel slighted by the exclusion to the BBT5 invitational. It is inevitable in hindsite that someone would get their feelings hurt. I think some people might have a really good argument and possibly should have been invited. I think some people who were invited probably should not be. I am sure Al did his best to make everything as fair as possible. I do believe that if we have another one of these events Al will decide to do some MATH with spreadsheets instead of this invitational idea. I could be wrong. Lazy asshole brought this on hisself!! heh.
Seriously though despite a few hurt feelings the fact that we can even get an awesome event like this from Full Tilt is really amazing. AlCantHang is the man. The other two events are still HUGE value. I mean eleven bucks to get a 1/4 shot at some kind of WSOP seat. Incredible. So thanks for this opportunity Al. You and Full Tilt rock!
