          Wow, those Ciaffone door prizes are excellent. Whoever get;s teh Ciaffone stuff is very lucky.

          Please tell me these prizes came about because you are in discussions with him about joining the school as the big-bet instructor. Please! Pretty please! That would be the best Christmas present ever. I would never leave the school, ever, if that was the case lol.

            Wow, that would be nice.

            What are you wishing for this Christmas Noodles?

              To actually win more than 1 close decision out of 20 all-in showdowns.

              I emailed Mr Ciaffone, and he said there has been no negotiation. However, he said he would consider joining in the future if the deal was right.

              Incidently, I think PSO should get Rolf to concentrate on pot limit omaha games. We already have a number of excellent limit holdem instructors at PSO. The balance of the lessons would be better if Rolf did the pot limit omaha.

                Add another to the list, Kathy! I just recieved a copy of the book "SERIOUS POKER", authored by Daniel Kimberg. This prize was generously donated by Mike Rosen, of Books For Gamblers.

                Web Site:
                Address: 6021 Yong St.
                Box 807
                Toronto, ON
                M2M 3W2
                Tel: 416-223-2877

                Mr. Rosen has been very cooperative and helpful. If the membership would take a look at his site, and help him out some, he says he would appreciate it a LOT!
                The book has mixed reviews on Amazon, and I have not looked through it, as I do not want to mess up the binding, but his donation is the 1st I have recieved, and I am grateful to him, as I hope the Membership will be. I have several other prizes I am working on, and will keep everyone posted as they come in.
