Even in this economic climate there is still plenty of free money out there if you know where to look. Free money, not easy money!
Now the Black Friday domain seizures are if not a distant memory then for the moment in the past, the major poker sites - with the exceptions of Absolute and the tragic Full Tilt - have recovered and readjusted to a future without American players.

This Sunday tournament - No Limit Hold 'Em - is fairly easy to qualify for. This particular Sunday it saw 9,569 runners competing for the $5,000 prize pool with a first prize of $730.00. As it paid no less than 1,100 places, you had a reasonable chance of winning at least a dollar if you were dealt good cards, played them well, and had a little bit of luck.
Our hero wasn't doing particularly well to start with but he got lucky later, including beating AQ with AJ all-in before the flop. After winning the hand below with aces, he was in 10th place, and after cracking aces with jacks he was in 7th place. He finished in 52nd place winning $7.00 after a shade over 4 hours 50 minutes at the table. As he was multi-tasking, what had he to lose?
