In some "local" news. Last night 35 players converged on the Eagles Aerie last night for a night of NLHE. When the dust settled, none other then my lovely and talented wife, Big Red, was the last man (errrr woman) standing. Congratulations baby! Sadly for me the night came to an end at the final table in the 7th position... no moneys. :( But a great night of poker, and we had a lot of new players and the word seems to be getting out about our "little" game. Y'all come back now...
