Thank you, thank you very much.
It is with great honour that I take this check. I've been enjoying PokerStars since the 2007 and have made GREAT friends around the world. I would like to dedicate this win to all my PSO friends, who have given me knowledge, competition, but especially FUN. Thank you.
What will you do with the money?
Not of your business........LOL
Kidding aside, I will put aside $1,000 to play the Seniors WSOP in June. This would be my third attempt to win this event. I would also put aside another $1,000 for one of the members of PSO to attend this event through a few tournaments organized with the Home Games. Of course the winner will have to be 50 or older as it is a Seniors event. I will also keep donating to the Drunk Tank Club.
How generous of you, is that like the AAA club and what about the other $3,000?
Thank you, like I said earlier, I've made lots of friends in PSO. No no no, the Drunk Tank Club is a Home Game Club which is based on friendship and especially FUN. We have both types of play, money and play money. The play money is for our American friends, so that we can continue our friendship until they are allowed back into real money play.
As for the other $3,000, I would keep $1,000 on PokerStars and probably play the Honu challenge at $0.25. Like everybody knows, you have to use bankroll management wisely. It consists of playing 100 games in a month and to be a positive player. I would also play my favorite game, the 2 re-buys, 1 add-on tournaments
As for the other $2,000, $1,000 would go to my daughter, so that she can spoil herself and my four grand kids. The other $1,000 lets see, me, wife, me, wife, I think there's no doubt, the wife gets it. She's so tolerant when it comes to my poker, even though I did have to make some adjustments, she deserves it.
Any last words to your poker buddies and poker players?
Sure, nah nah nah nah.....I
To all my buddies, I'll see you all in the tank tonight. To all poker players out there,  Poker is a game, treat it as such. Enjoy the people you play with. Take the time to learn how to play the game, remember patience is a virtue and 27o is the way to go.
Sorry we still have 2 minutes, any thing else you would like to add?
Not really, but if you insist. I would like to thank PokerStars for allowing me to be part of the World Blogger Championship of Online Poker 2012. I would also like to thank them for giving me a place that is original, innovative, but especially fun, especially were friends are concerned. There's something for everyone's taste. Sure there will always be complaints, but that's human nature. So to all, embrace life, enjoy life and enjoy the company on PokerStars.
Thank You
