Default Please Read I Am Buzzing My Tits Off

I don’t know where to start.

I am going to apologise in advance for my swearing and my haste.

I am absolutely ****IN ecstatic.

I play a little online poker at pokerstars.com, only $10 games…… anyway I was playing tonight (its 6.45pm here) – my wife Helen was due back, anytime, with the phone calls “you better be off that computer when I get in�

I was playing because it is the night someone would play the 200,000,000 (two hundredth-millionth) hand. I was playing in a 50cents game and had $5 in my pot (Jesus I cant bare to type this my hands are shaking like **** – I just need to tell the world)

Out of 66,000 players and around 40,000 whatever tables – my table landed the 200,000,000th hand to be dealt

All 6 players would definitely win $2500 just for being on the table – man this is the best day of my life………………⠦…..YES YES YES

But I can’t ****in believe it I WON the hand…. I had a pair of fours and Ace Queen King came on the flop… nobody was gonna fold, and I won the ****er with 4 4.

I HAVE WON a $11,500 Caribbean cruise on the world poker tour from Miami, all the best players in the world will be there paying $10,000 just to enter the comp…. and I have a seat for the $1million prize tournament and much much more

I will have all my clothes provided for me… stay in a top Suite…

And get this… they have already (within minutes of me winning) paid $1000 into my account to pay for my flights.



PART OF MY E-MAIL

Hi Dylan -
Congratulations on winning the 200 millionth hand dealt at PokerStars! As you realize by now, that means you're going on the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure!

Here are the details...


* In the next 48 hours, you will be contacted by our travel
planner, Polar Bear Travels. (THEY PUT NUMBERS ADDRESSES ETC)Francine
will provide you with a login to your private cruise planning
web site.

* You should make airline reservations as soon as you can, as
the cruise takes place in the height of the travel season
to the Caribbean. Francine can assist you with this to get you
the best airfares available. You should already have received
$1,000 for airfare (deposited in your PokerStars account) -
if you haven't, please contact me at…. immediately.

* If you are not a resident of the US or Canada, you must have
a passport. If you are a resident of the US or Canada and
don't have a passport, consider getting one between now
and January. The cruise line will accept some alternate forms of
identification (like a birth certificate with a raised stamp plus
photo ID); however, we STRONGLY recommend that you bring a passport.

* We'll be providing you with a variety of PokerStars gear to wear
on the cruise, including t-shirts, cap, polo shirts, a
Hawaiian shirt and much more. These will be delivered to your
suite once you're onboard. Make sure to give us your size
on the registration web site.

On board ship, we'll have a full poker room, daily tournaments,
one-table tournaments, and of course the PokerStars Caribbean
Adventure Main Event and the PokerStars World Cup of Poker
event, both of which will be taped for the World Poker Tour.
You will be required to sign a television broadcast wiver; we will forward this to you at a later date.

If you have other questions regarding the event, please feel free
to contact us at the following email addresses:

We look forward to seeing you onboard on January 18, 2004 for
the most exciting poker tournaments of the year!

Regards,

Lee Jones
Poker Room Manager
PokerStars.com


I CANNOT BELIEVE MY LUCK………. THIS IS THE ONLY THING I HAVE EVER WON IN MY LIFE Jeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeesus

That is not funny, you should have rolled into his legs, to knock him over and run away with the ticket
