Now we wanna hear about your April Fools' Day. Maybe you fooled your friends or even a family member? [...] Read more » "Phil Ivey quits poker": Did you fall for it?

OK! I called my mother who was on hers job (she is lawyer), and I told her to download Full tilt fast in her office because there was 100 000$ freeroll for Balkans only that starts in 30 minutes (yes I was inspired by Davoo). I told here also that only first 1 000 people can participate. She had some work to do but she sad "Fuk work I must play that!" Well she somehow managed to install it (she doesnt speak english at all) and istead of working she searched for tournament 30 minutes! Boy, she was sooooo disappointed My mother, she LOVES poker!

I didn't believe it, why I never commented on the original story. They said in it that, they would be back in a few hours to elaborate further. They never did, so I knew it was bogus. Ivey quit poker, that's like saying Obama quit the presidency....

Oh and I told everyone here about Admins sticky fingers, now no one belives me.

You would have had to get up PRETTY EARLY IN THE MORNING to pull that one over on us !!! Again, Ivey's earnings ALONE on FTP are about 14,000,000. He truly does bleed poker !!! When he is sleeping, he's dreaming poker...

I didnt fall on this one, but i had on others from some BRM members, like the FT tourney, i was working and just thought "how great it will be to play a big tourney after work" but it was a joke. I didnt made none roll, but there was one thing that came in every newspaper on April 1st that i thought it was a prank and it was true. Read this: a big football club forbidden the supporters of another club to bring flags into the stadium. And after all, it was real. It happens so many strange and hilarious things in Portugal that we (inhabitants) sometimes cant distinguish about what is true or not!

We organized a tombola (I don't know that's the right word it's somekind of local lottery where you can win some prizes) at our local soccer club. The trick was that we arranged a special first prize being a first class date with a nerdy girl known as weird Wendy . The winner, who appeared to be one of my mates, totally freaked out when he "cashed" his prize. Everyone went hilarious went Wendy wanted a kiss but then he was told it was all a joke
Oh and Wendy had a drink from the house for her wonderfull performance
