There's another charity poker game coming up in about a month. Same group that did that terribly-run one from a few Christmases back. Due to the rough economic times, they've lowered the buy-in - $100 rebuy.

They haven't decided if it'll be 1 or 2 rebuys, and there will be an add-on (likely a top-off). They expect a decent turnout (140 cap for players) as well, and the prize they're thinking of sounds decent. Plus, it's for charity.

But they're also likely using the same gang of dolts that ran that one in '07. The same group that decided to shorten levels and even drop some after the first break to make up time. The same group that had dealers who couldn't keep track of what level we were on. The same group that didn't know how their rebuys worked until I asked.

But it will likely also have the same players who got trashed and couldn't play worse if they tried. I figure this HAS to be +EV, even if the staff will be frustrating.

Also, the bar they're holding it as has very good... hiring practices.

Isn't the definition of insanity doing the same thing over and over again expecting different results?

I guess I should sign up.
