MARGE (Mississippi Autumn Rec.Gambling Excursion) will be played at the Biloxi Grand Hotel and Casino the weekend of November 2-5. This is the second of hopefully many, annual MARGE meetings. We currently have 48 registered attendees from 13 states plus Sweden.

Also the (3) first place finishers and our Best All Around Player will “qualify” for an entry into the Tournament of Champions.

I have confirmed that there are still rooms available for Marge at the discounted rate of $75 per night. We have the following left:

Thursday Nov 2nd – 8 rooms

Friday Nov 3rd – 5 rooms

Keep in mind that we get the 75$ rate for 3 days before and 3 days after but there is no guarantee of rooms available. October 3rd is the date we lose our guarantee on these remaining rooms.

Lou Krieger is our featured speaker on Saturday night.

I hope you will be able to join us for the fun. If you have any questions please contact me at to register.

Poker EM 2000

Casino Austria really knows how to put on a Togel Hari Ini poker tournament! I was really impressed by the level of pomp and circumstance surrounding the European Poker Championships (Poker EM). With a couple of hundred people surrounding the last table, and a live internet audio and video broadcast of the final table, it felt pretty special winning the Poker EM. The level of excitement and screaming of people over every big pot played, wow! After I won the Poker EM, Casino Austria must have taken over three hundred pictures of me, my two sisters and brother in law with me, and me just holding the trophy. They had me throwing chips up into the air, snap, they had me hugging my sisters, snap, they had me with two casino girls, snap, they had me hugging and kissing my trophy, snap, snap, snap, snap. I know that my ‘Phil Hellmuths Player Panel’ had this event ranked the 11th most prestigious poker tournament for the year 2000 (and that in itself is awesome!), but it seems to me it should be ranked higher than that. The pomp and circumstance was second only to the World Series of Poker’s (WSOP) Championship Event, but unfortunately, the money was only about $107,000 for first place. Well, at least I didn’t make a deal this time!

They tell me that I am the first American to win the European Poker Championship. They tell me that I am the first player to win the WSOP Championship Event and the European Poker Championship. They tell me that I have won 4 out of the last 9 poker tournaments that I have played in. That’s all very cool, and its been awhile since I have won a history making event in poker (1997 WSOP pot limit hold ’em), but just give me the trophy and I’ll see you later!
