Hey, you guys remember when I humiliated JT Eberhard, crushing his spirit and ripping his soul from his body and making him wear a t-shirt that says “Ed Brayton is a poker god”? Well I’m gonna do it again — and you get to watch. And it’s all to raise money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society as part of his gameathon this Saturday. We’re gonna fire up a table at Poker Stars because, apparently, he still hasn’t learned his lesson yet. Best of all, you can join in on the fun. Not only can you watch us play a heads-up match, but you can sit down and play with us if you make a $20 donation to LLS. You can find some of the details at JT’s blog. Here are a few others:
The heads-up match with JT will be at 9 pm EST. It shouldn’t take more than an hour to destroy his touching self-delusion that he can beat me at poker, so at 10 PM EST we’re gonna fill the table up with 8 others who want to play with us. It’s play chips only because the fascists at the DOJ under both Bush and Obama have destroyed the ability to play for real money at online poker sites. Here’s what you’ll need to do:
1. Get a Poker Stars account if you don’t already have one and download the software.
2. Join the Atheist Poker Gods league:
– Open the main poker lobby, then click on the Home Games tab
– Click the ‘Join a Poker Club’ button
– Enter my Club ID number: 873735
– Enter my Invitation Code: praisefsm
This needs to be done ahead of time so I can approve you for inclusion in the league, otherwise you won’t be able to play.
