    ty dave, I'm speechless! Earlier on today I loaded up a few micro cash tables on PokerStars and I was about 10 mins into what I though would be an hours grind when my twitter and skype started going slightly mad with notifications. I was directed to this tweet by the official PokerStars twitter account.
    I nearly fell of the chair and still don't, as I write this, fully believe it. I was still an unbeliever and I shot off an email to support asking if this was true. Here's the reply I got: Thank you for contacting PokerStars. I can confirm that the information you received is very true. Congratulations. Our PokerStars judges choose you as the winner. You will be receiving an award of $5,000 as well as a trophy. You will be contacted within the next 72 hours with further details of your reward. We appreciate your participation and again congratulations on your win. Whoop Whoop! I am World Champion! Apparently my blog was chosen by the pokerstarsblog team as one of the 2 wildcard entries. I will donate half of the prize to Temple Street Children's Hospital like I said from the very beginning and will post up a photo of the presentation here. I'm proud to be able to do this for both myself and the PSO community here! Raiser umbup:

      Awesome news - well done!

      Despite my often overblown vocabulary I cannot even think of a word that describes how many times better than 'awesome' this gesture is.
      Great to see a PSO regular firstly do so good, then do some real good.

      You have my heartfelt congratulations and utmost respect.

        Hey Raiser! Bigtime Congrats.umbup: Great idea on your choice of charity for 1/2 of it. I'm very sure that they'll appreciate it and put it to very good use. Since you're getting a trophy for it too... be sure to get a pic of you with it and put it on here. Let us know which UKIPT tourney you're going to play in, so that all of us can follow you in it. Congrats again! John (JWK24)

                  Congratulations Raiser! Not many people would actually give half their price money away just like that. They obviously picked the right winner! ....

                    It's actually more like giving a little back! That hospital was very good to me. I explained why I wanted to do it in my BLOG , you'll have to scroll down to the bottom to see it. Give me a week or two to get everything sorted and I'll post up a pic of the presentation and trophy. I'll also post up a blog about the whole experience in the next day or two. Thank you guys for all the good wishes! Raiser umbup:
