Make me an offer for 500 poker chips

The story ...

Last summer, I won sixty cents in a free poker tournament at I planned on playing until I lost it all, but decided not to take U.S. players for real-money games when Congress passed the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act. I cashed out and asked my readers what I should do with my sixty-cent check. One suggested I try to trade it for something better. So here I am, trying turn my sixty-cent check into a World Series of Poker Main Event entry through a series of trades. And while my plan may seem ridiculous, it's no more ridiculous than the UIGEA.

I love Norwood

I moved to Norwood, Mass., last summer. It's a great little town about 40 minutes southwest of Boston -- far enough from the city to feel like I have some space, yet close enough to catch a train in to watch a game at Fenway.

Norwood also has a great little weekly paper called the Norwood Bulletin, and Matt Cook wrote about my quest to trade my way from a sixty cent check to a seat in the World Series of Poker. I really enjoyed the story.

But just to clear up one detail, so I don't have to spend thousands of dollars putting my wonderful son through therapy during his teenage years, I'm perfectly happy to give up what used to be a weekly poker game to spend more time with him!

On a completely unrelated note, the ICC Cricket World Championship is tomorrow, and I'm picking Australia at 2/5 to win. They've been so dominant the entire tournament, it's hard to pick against them.
