I will be playing, Rodney Charters ASC, Shane Hurlbut ASC, Vincent LaForet and Kevin Shaninian too. Unfortunately the only poker I used to play was the more adult variety and I was always the chilliest one by the end 😉 So I will be probably be done by about 815PM! Rodney also tells me he sucks, but I think he is bluffing!
