re: Poker & Extreme Poker Tournament
Whats so extreme about that?
I once played in a pit full of venomous snakes. Also, when you lost a hand, they shoved a bamboo shoot into your fingernails. During the game they had ninja squads randomly beating players to the brink of death. This was all reasonable, and I was able to play my A game anyway. What got me was the swinging "pendulum of death", that swung back and forth at 60 miles per hour while they spun the whole pit around at ever increasing speeds. I got knocked out early Im sad to say.
The tournament winner got to take the poker table and all the chips, and jump over a shark in shorts and a leather jacket... Lucky him!
