Open Letter to All My NPP Friends – And a Tuesday Game Invite

First – Two Announcements

Pre01 has invited the NPP gang to a tournament at the Howell Sharks Club, 7pm Tuesday. For a $30 entry, you get 8000 chips, 15 minute blinds and a $10 add on. Faldo will be there – NPP hat in hand.

Nahanni74 has more information on the loss of our PokerStars and Full Tilt Poker freedom on her blog. See the blog list on the right side of this blog. Check it out!

Now Faldo’s Open Letter:

Our internet league has been squashed by the boot of tyranny. Get used to the feeling – more of this is on the way, but I digress.

I will keep all the records and if we can start up again on PokerStars by the end of the year, we will do so – and adjust accordingly. This will mean another strenuous NPP Tournament Committee Meeting where when Tiffany finishes with her last pole dance, a decision will be reached. Oh heavy is the crown of responsibility on the NPP Committee.

The Walk of Fame will be left on the NPP blog, as will the NPP Player of the Year List.

The 2011 POY will be named should we not play again this year on line (another committee meeting unfortunately. Will the work never stop!).

The site will still feature “New Players at NPP” and I still have to find a caddy. So that will be updated every Tuesday (if for nothing else then for the memory of our league).

Every great writer has an outline they follow. But I am going to try and have one too.

I will continue to update the blog with something at least 5 of the 7 days of the week. Any help with articles, private game invites or news of NPP player tournament exploits are always welcome.

Monday/Tuesday will have a report on Faldo’s body of work in poker for the last week. I might include as a bonus my exploits in chess, fishing, golf - or scoring with chicks.

Wednesday will be an “Advice” article. On what? Usually poker, but maybe other things – like scoring with chicks.

Thursday will be Douge2’s Humor Corner. Doug supplies the bulk of the material, but actually I get it from all the things my friends send me or tell me. Please keep the material flowing.

Friday/Saturday will be an article, picture or video that I thought was entertaining.

Sunday will be The Community Card Review with the truth and honesty not found in any of our nation’s media anywhere.

So that is the plan for the blog. Here is the long term plan of our league.

I think it is best we ride out the rest of 2011 and see what the internet poker landscape looks like in December (unless PokerStars gets turned back on before that).

Maybe we can pick another site and if there is enough interest, and give it another try.

But there is no reason why home games/tournaments, charity and casino outings and other events cannot be planned, RSVP’ed, held and enjoyed thru the NPP network of friends. Pre01 just kicked that off.

Faldo will be here at NPP headquarters at your service. NPP lives on!

I will be trying to play some poker this weekend since all this Global Warming has ice all over my golf course.

I will see if PokerStars is open and let everyone know.

I too cashed some out and will let everyone know if I am successful.
