Okay, so I got an extra copy of the book (my friend gave me an early Christmas gift knowing I was a big Daniel fan) and I decided instead of putting it on eBay or Amazon or whatever, I would have some fun and make a contest out of it.Now, because I live in California, it is illegal for me to hold a random lottery. So, here's what I'm going to do. I'm going to have nine people give me $4 and one of them will get the book. I'm going to make a private online poker NLHE tournament on PokerStars ($5.50 since that's the minimum) and whoever gets first place will get the book. I will even pay for the shipping (via Media Mail) since the list price of the book is $34.95.Here's how to qualify. Be one of the first nine people to send me $4 on PokerStars (patho) and make sure you include your FCP username under the additional instruction field. When I get the money, I will give you the password for the tournament. Please do not give out the password to others. If I see a name registered for the tournament and it is not one that is supposed to be there this contest will be null and void. So, please do not ruin it for others. I won't be able to cancel the tournament but I will give back a refund of the $4 paid to me.I will stop accepting people once it has filled up or if it has passed 23:59PST on 12-8-08. If it does not fill up by midnight tonight, I will give back the money to those that paid me.Here are the restrictions:1) Must have a valid account on FCP (so I can PM you the password)2) Must have an account on PokerStars (since that's where I will make the private tourney)3) Must live in the US because I'm only going to ship in the States.4) Make sure you can play at the time of the tournament. It is set for December 9, 2008. 13:00PST/16:00EST. Tournament ID is 125802239.5) No refunds unless it does not fill up or the contest becomes void in the way stated above.After you win please PM me with your address so I can send you the book. I will also try to be observing the game, so I can see you win, as well as cheer you guys on as the game is in progress.There's just one request I hope for. When you do receive your prize if you can write a testimonial so people can see I have a good reputation. I hope this is a success and if people like it, I can try it again in the future.PS. This is not a scam, so if you don't have anything positive to say...well, you know. I just wanted to try something different and hopefully fun.
