    Default snooptodd mentioned in the Wall Street Journal

    snooptodd has been trying to trade his way to the WSOP by starting with a 60-cent check from an Internet poker room. Right now he has a Super Bowl XXXVI football signed by former Patriots field goal kicker Adam Vinatieri.

    The idea was inspired by Kyle MacDonald, who traded a red paperclip for a house. Kyle has just published a book about his efforts, and the WSJ did a review of the book which mentioned young snoop.

    Mr. MacDonald is a likable dude, always getting "pumped" or "stoked" by his adventures, which he relates in an amusing and breezy way but without much analytical rigor. That's a shame, because he has inspired any number of imitators who barter-off the detritus of their lives. A young man named Aaron Todd did quite well recently with 500 poker chips embossed with an image of William Shatner's kidney stone--which Mr. Shatner himself had auctioned off to the casino that issued them.

    what do you mean "snooptodd has been trying to trade his way to the WSOP " ???

    does he want to play and needs money for the entry fee?

    if yes, how much is the entry fee?
