    Wasn't Care International the non-profit that FTP was matching donations to last year after that typhoon hit the Philippines?

    Here's an update from their website on the work they've been doing there:




    Wonder how many people'll show up to play - maybe this might a fun thing to do, especially if it's for charity ...

        Looks like this promo got a nice turnout - about 1,000 people showed up, even though Rafa's only playing about a hand every 10 minutes


        Guess I'll just go play at the regular tables - am a little behind schedule ...

          I got to play a hand with Rafa and it was a "corker" of a hand to see.
          Nice feeling to be right there and I could almost feel his pain.

          Check it out.
