<p>Not since the <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thrilla_in_Manila">Thrilla in Manila</a> has there been a contest so hyped, with so much on the line. This is bound to be the most remarkable, exceptional event in Vegas all year.</p> <p>Of course I refer to…</p> <h2>The 2009 Railsconf Poker Tournament</h2> <p>We’re pleased to announce a no-limit Texas Hold ‘Em poker tournament tomorrow night (Thursday) at 9pm at <a href="http://is.gd/xjNn">The Poker Room at Caesar’s Palace</a>.</p> <p>The buy-in is $65. Caesar’s takes $15 from each person to set everything up for us. We’ll have our own dealers, and the casino handles everything.</p> <p><strong>Winner takes the rest.</strong></p>
Send an @reply to @thoughtbot on Twitter. We’ll call Caesar’s at noon tomorrow with the final count. We’ve got 15 right now.
For more than two months now, the thoughtbot guys have been enjoying a weekly round of poker. This has been an excellent opportunity to unwind, get to know each other a little better, and see each others apartments.
Taking the opportunity to relax and have some healthy competition has been a lot of fun. Featured in the picture (from left to right) is Floyd, Eric T, Jared and Eric M (Floyd is dealing) the three remaining players in a game of 8.
