    Thanks Colin for posting this the website is http://www.cbgaffiliteweekend.com .We will update website with this info soon.Just wanted to publicly Apologise if any friends waiting on me to reply to things this week and to my affiliate managers as well.

    Monday afternoon my husband and daughter were involved in a car accident.My daughter suffered a concussion and some neck and back injuries ,my husband has some shoulder and back injuries.The New car we bought , his baby was totally destroyed when a driver went through a red light and made a left turn in front of him.

    Anyway been a crazy week with 8 hours yesterday in the hospital for my daughter to get a CAT scan and confirmation of her concussion plus dealing with insurance companies etc.Specially want to say thanks to my friend Hakan who has helped keep things running for me and I have not even had time to talk to my friends here to even tell them of the accident.

    Cars can be replaced but now i am so lucky that my husband and daughter survived ,the car is totally destroyed all airbags went off and it was like you see in a cartoon or funny movie , when we went to get some personal things from the car in the storage facility ,Dean closed the car door and part of the fender fell off.Yes it is that bad ,the other guy has been charged and we will get the car replaced ,we got the head rest covered (custom made) and license plates that was about all that was salvaged from his car.We are definitely thanking God it is just a car loss.

    Wow Judy, I'm happy to hear Dean and your daughter came away relatively unscathed. You're right, cars can be replaced, but this was Dean's baby! What a shame.

    Family first! Everything else can wait.

    Way to trash talk him Judy - get him tilting, that always makes it easier to win, especially heads up.

    Doug - I thought there was only one game and it was going to be held the weekend before the CBG Weekend.... Aug 22 - I think.

    The new Gr88 rep posted something about it on PAL. I'll see if I can find it.

    Default Got it!!

    Took some digging but here's the info...

    Affiliates attending the CBG weekend can qualify for the Great 8 in the following 3 ways.

    1. By playing an online qualifying tournament in the GR88.com poker room on Sunday August 21st at 3pm EST. The top 3 finishers will qualify for the Great 8 final table, and the winner will received $500 in their GR88 player account – which should cover their hotel room at the CBG weekend.*
    2. By signing up as an affiliate at GR88affiliates.com and placing a GR88 Poker advertisement on your affiliate website between July 21 and August 21 2010. We will randomly draw an affiliate’s name to play the Great 8 final table in the week preceding the event.*
    3. By showing up on the night at 8:30pm and participating in one of the qualification events to be run by GR88 staff in the first hour of proceedings. Four affiliates will be chosen to play the Great 8 final table on the night. We’re not announcing beforehand just how we’re going to decide these 4 lucky affiliates, but you can be assured it won’t be poker related, and should be a lot of fun.

    Hey guys,

    GR88 is about to be listed as a sponsor here at GPWA, so I can now post in the forum and keep you updated.

    There is information about the event on our website - http://www.gr88affiliates.com/affili...ampionship.htm

    CBG is also sending out an email soon to all attendees.

    We cut the event back to a single online tournament, because in my experience most affiliates don't have the time to play online much. I certainly never used to. To play, just email me and let me know your GR88 player name. (kris@gr88.com)

    It should be a lot of fun, I might even join in and put an extra bounty on my head. If you have any questions, please get in touch.

    Kris you do not have to play to get a bounty on your head LOL. I disagree with you on affiliates not having time to play ,we run poker games all the time for our players what's one more.Oh well , you saved Doug great deal of pain lol

    True, I'm a marked man atm anyway. Judy, let me know your player name and I'll give you the coupon so you can knock me out....

    I hope a lot of people play, but when it is only attendees of a live event that are eligible, it narrows the field. We've only had a couple of people request the entry coupon so far, so get in there folks, it could be an easy $500.
