New York City
Many years ago on Thanksgiving evening after our family dinner, I played poker at my brother's apartment. I had recently bought a chip set and he had just learned the intricacies of the game. We prepped for an impending poker trip to Vegas and had a blast that night. We forged a bond and never could we ever imagine the amazing journey that we'd both set off through poker over the next six years. That momentous evening of cards on Thanksgiving were the origins of Turkey Cup.
Last year I created Turkey Cup.... a special Thanksgiving tournament that came to life at the last possible moment. Derek won the tournament and took down the title. The coveted cup and the honor and the bragging rights were all his own. And now it's back. Derek will try to defend his title on Thanksgiving night in the second annual Turkey Cup.
Yes, that's Derek and myself circa 1980. And you are cordially invited to join us.
Turkey Cup is a $5 NL tournament hosted on PokerStars at 9pm ET on Thanksgiving night. It's the perfect the post-dinner activity and a chance to get away from your insane family members. Or Turkey Cup is a nifty activity if you are a bored Canuck or a Eurodonk with insomnia.
Everyone is invited. Hope to see you there. And if you can't play in the Turkey Cup, there's always Saturdays with Dr. Pauly this coming weekend.
