1st Annual TBC "Memorial" Meet Up Has Been Set for Wednesday, January 25

The Man ... The Myth ... The Legend ...
Tony Bigcharles

After much TBC Inner Circle haggling, posturing and fighting, a decision was finally reached to have the first ever international Tony Bigcharles meet up in Las Vegas this coming week. All friends and followers of Tony across the world -- and beyond -- are invited.

Actually, I had been kicking around this idea for about a year. Of course, the purpose, u see, is to have a FUN gathering for many of people who seem to live and breathe poker on social media sites like Twitter and/or who have at least a passing interest in the blog or gambling exploits of Tony Bigcharles. Come and meet or say hi to people you interact with or have read online. Have a drink or some food and come and go as you like.

@grrouchie -- Drink too much, my friend, and you might find yourself the head of the Inner Circle once again. You have been warned.

@Kat -- Tony says he will be there. It means time away from gambling, however, so I'd say there are some odds at play here.

@Koala - Found out about a family wedding, so hoping to go to Las Vegas starting July 17 or so.

@AC - Info is posted here with a referral from Twitter, so Chris and Flushh should see it. Kevin G is welcome to come. I am not friends with The Trooper. You should invite him if you want.

If this actually becomes a memorial I'll be there, else I invite everyone to Bally's/Flamingo/Venetian afterwards for a *quiet* game of poker.

I hate to be a nitpicker, but wasn't the first TBC Memorial Meetup the tournament at the Riviera in 2012?

July 17 would work for me. Gives me a chance to get over my jet lag from the week before.

I have probably played more times with Tony than the rest of you combined.
I have read the blog since 2008, which is when I started playing poker and when I first met Tony.
I feel I know many of you vicariously and will try to be there.

Can you turn it into a roast?

Also, go to a casino and film him as he points out if women are hookers or not. He seems to think 78% of all women are hookers so I want to see him in action.
