Today is the first Tuesday edition of the Friday Game. Since I didn’t play last week, and was therefore unable to be knocked out by someone, I decided to make good on a threat I issued at the WPBT Winter Classic, and named this week’s game after the blogfather himself, Iggy.
What: WWdN: Bonus Code IGGY Invitational
When: Tuesday December 20th. 7:00 PM EST
Tournament number: 16742725
We are already in our ninth week, which just blows me away. It rules the most that these tourneys continue to draw as many players as they do. Like PokerGeek said, "It’s the world’s biggest homegame."
Last week, I mentioned that a major announcement regarding the tournaments would come out, and sugggested that wild and rampant speculation should immediately ensue. Well, the speculation wasn’t particularly wild or rampant, which I’ll chalk up to holiday exhaustion, rather than a soul-crushing lack of enthusiasm, but here’s the news:
Every player who wins one of the Tuesday Night WWdN Invitationals will be freerolled by PokerStars into a WWdN Tournament Of Champions Sit-N-Go, where they’ll get to play against me for some serious money. A PokerStars table seats nine players, so every eight weeks, we’ll play a WWdN:ToC where I will join the eight weekly champions to crown the Super Mega Totally Awesome Champion. Since we have eight winners already, I’ll work with PokerStars to schedule the first WWdN:ToC in the very near future.
I will be live blogging tonight’s game at CardSquad, so if check it out if you’re into that sort of thing. I hope to see lots of players tonight!
