Monsieur Hawkins, you have rocketed in my estimation. Ever since I saw Peter O'Toole playing the title role in Jeffrey Bernard Is Unwell, I've been utterly in love with the man. Indeed, much of my early university life was spent sequestered in the library archives, sifting through back issues of The Spectator. Pure gold.

'The ambassador' puts so called poker celebs like D.Coldcough in the shade.

Dear Fellow Journalist:

We were thrilled with the response to the 2005 World Championship of Online Poker (WCOOP). Thank you for making this the biggest online poker tournament in history.

Due to the overwhelming response, I am pleased to announce that is hosting the first annual Online Poker Blogger Championship (OPBC). With the explosion of poker's popularity over the Internet, many talented writers have turned to blogging about poker and we have created a special championship event for this exclusive group of poker aficionados. We are also inviting bloggers from other fields to join us, so they may experience the fun and excitement of online poker.

I would like to personally invite you to play in the OPBC which is to be held on October 23rd. The starting time is 4 pm EST. The game is No-Limit Texas Hold'em. Your entry is free.

For the winners, we are giving away a number of prizes, including an all-expenses paid vacation and entry into the Caribbean Adventure to be held at the Atlantis Resort in the Bahamas in January 2006. The top prize, valued at $12,000, includes a chance to play in a World Poker Tour event and be featured on television. Also, five flat panel LCDs will be given away, in addition to ten Xbox 360s, and twenty ipods.

To be eligible to enter, all that is necessary is that you have a blog that has been in service for at least two months. To register, simply go to:

The website contains all the information that is necessary to enter and play in the tournament. If you have any questions or want more information, please contact:

Again, I stress that this invitation costs nothing. No deposit is necessary. Simply come to, set up a player account (if you do not play there already).

I look forward to seeing you online and competing in the championship. Someone out there will win his or her way to Atlantis. Many others will enjoy some very nice prizes. On behalf of, the world's top online poker tournament site, welcome to the place "Where Poker Players Become World Champions."

Very Truly Yours,

Nolan Dalla
