Three Strikes and You're Out
I was in a blogger freeroll final with a trip to the WSOP Main Event as the top prize. My fourth place finish got me an iPod. Not bad for free, I guess, but far short of a chance to play with the big boys.
A tournament with a trip to the Playboy Mansion as the prize for the winner. Every guy's dream to go there at least once, right? My fourth place finish netted me nada.
Another tournament with a trip to the Playboy Mansion for the winner. My result: third place. My winnings: nada.
As I look back I see that these tournaments were seven years ago -- when online poker was the the biggest thing around. The tournaments were at Poker.com, Dream Poker and I believe, CD Poker. Those were some great days.
