Selling % of myself in the EPO & my gf still hasn't popped!

I have secured my seat into the English Poker Open today. I have had a surprising lack of interest in people wishing to buy a piece of me, but I guess it is a large ass buy-in ($5000+300). I was originally relying on this to be able to play the tourney, but with doing well recently I've decided to take the risk of not selling my action and playing whatever happens. If you are interested in getting a reduced price seat for the event, check out this page.

I'm selling at a $400 for 10%, $40 for 1% rate. This is effectively selling at a mark-down of 0.75:1 . I've sold about 25% so far, and am willing to sell up to 35% more. Whack me an e-mail or leave a comment if you are interested.

It will be really cool to play such a big event, it's been a while since I played a noteworthy tournament. There are a few big names being mentioned will be present, Phil Hellmuth and Doyle Brunson amongst them, but I'll be more bothered about getting a table full of qualifiers than playing with name players.

My girlfriend's due date was yesterday, but no sign yet. I am happy we hit September 1st because I was hoping he'd be the oldest in his school year as opposed to the youngest. It's a weird feeling waiting for something that you don't know when is going to happen. It's kinda like waiting for the toaster to pop, and if I'm around her when her waters break, I'm sure I will shit myself in the same way that I do when I'm around the toaster and it makes me jump!

Good luck to you both mate, it's a great experience.

FWIW, Mrs P was overdue by a week and she went into labour the day she was meant to be induced.

BTW James, thanks for those card mods, at first I didn't like them but I think they are pretty awesome. So simple but effective IMO
