FPT 10 - Prologue

I've intentionally blocked of this day as the day for me to prepare for the Filipino Poker Tour 10 - Metro Hi-5 tournament. I'm scheduled to do absolutely nothing and I've achieved that pretty easily. Actually, I used a little bit of time to get a haircut. I now have my mohawk on and I'm ready.

I'm mentally prepared. I've slept comfortably. I will last a whole day of playing poker. I've envisioned myself playing tomorrow until heads-up. This tournament is mine...

FPT10 Metro Hi-5 Pre-registration

I just signed up for Day1A of the FPT10 event. I was the second person to do so. Excited.

Saturday, July 11, 2009


They showed FPT4, the charity event. This is the one I was able to join but busted out early.

I personally didn't like it. I didn't see much action. Real poker action at least. It was a long drawn out commercial. And when they're not hyping up poker, it becomes a Tessa Prieto show because Tessa steals the spotlight from everyone on the table.

I understand where they're coming from because they want to promote poker in the Philippines but it's far from WPT, High Stakes Poker, or any other foreign poker shows.

I hope that next time there'll be more hands shown.

Filipino Poker Tour on TV

Finally, the Filipino Poker Tour will be airing on local television. July 11, 11pm on Studio 23. I think this is FPT1 that they're showing. It's been so long that I forgot who won.
