Vote early and often

I have been nominated for Ultimate Poker Challenge Player of the Year, and you can vote for me at their web site. I'm not sure what I win but it can't be bad. I haven't even seen three of the four episodes I'm in because the Seattle affiliate dropped the show for season two. Maybe if I win they'll send me a set of DVDs.

I have also been nominated to serve on the World Poker Tour player advisory committee. I did not ask to be nominated and there may well be five candidates more qualified than I but if you are voting and think I would do a good job, I will serve if elected. They should already have sent you an email if you're a voter.

Wish me luck in the Full Tilt $1000 WSOP Main Event Super Satellite tonight.

Translation software has come a long way

I received the following letter from a fan in Japan:

Besides it is a Japanese fan at the start.

I am an office worker with a normal housewife.

Your book was useful for me with many troubles very much.

Therefore I want to convey a feeling of thanks and, with translation software, write a letter towards a foreigner for the first time.

Because you are rich, I think that there is not the thing which I can present so.

I thought what it was to have on me.

I take a supplement to call Japanese D balance.

I came to drink this and got well very much.

Though it seems to say diagram bacon in U.S.A., it is what even I who am not a doctor sell it to a person in Japan because it is a supplement, and it can offer.

Is not this terrible?

Surely I do this story though good information will gather to you like a mountain from all over the world because I liked at all your book.

It is my feeling of small thanks.

Thank you very much for Richard Brodie.

This story of you when have like it, is glad.
