If we're going to go with BitInstant, we need a live LCD tshirt playing the "Why Wait" video. 8D

Is that physically possible? If yes, SO DOWN!

Not sure how viable it is... but it looks like it's certainly coming.

I can do my polo at cost ($22) and provide one of them free if there was support.  Time is an issue though.  To get eight in one size (I stock 2-3) i would need to know by Friday.

I personally believe the polo is best as it peaks interest and looks good but A tshirt design with sponsors could be done as well and I could sponsor half of it myself or with others.  I think something simple like:

Why would anyone donate to a guy who just won $960,000?

Still around.

Due to the DOJ repeal of the wire act pertaining to online poker it might and probably is legal to play online poker for U.S. citizens.  All you have to do is find a poker room that accepts player to player transfers.  Merge, Bodog, Cake I don't think allow these transfers.  But a good BTC business would be a middle man of BTC to poker site transfers.   Make the business, then advertise those shirts on tv.  I say this because I think it is 100% legal, however consult your lawyer.  Also have a rakeback system in-place to make more money and lower fees.  I just want to play internationally again with my right as an American to pursue happiness.

Not to put a damper on this, but I used to play poker as my main income for 2.5 years. I've never heard of Moon Kim, and it looks like he just got lucky on one tournament:

http://www.pokernews.com/news/2012/03/moon-kim-wins-2012-world-poker-tour-bay-101-shooting-star-12204.htm

If you look at the hand histories, he binked favourable cards to put him in the lead when he was behind. Like the hand where he had 44 was badly played (chasing a one card open ended) unless there was some meta game going on (which is unlikely for an amateur). So he's unlikely to get far in this event - these events usually have loads of people (especially the WPT which is a mega crowd drawer) and only the final few tables are televised.

Kim went all in with Pocket 4s preflop. He wasn't chasing anything. Unless you're referring to a different hand in the article which I didn't see.

I think he must be talking about a different hand, because in this one the draw wasn't open-ended either.
