oh, that's a relief! i have totally forgot about this occasion, and it really was amusing for me.i'm glad that was a joke, even though i am not one of the Humphrey's

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 Big Smile. 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 Tongue

Oh and Wendy had a drink from the house for her wonderfull performance Big Smile

I would never belive Phil Ivey would quit Poker and i was aware of they day.
I don't like April Fools and I doesn't care. Just a normal day for myself.

My friend got secretly married on April 1st ... nobody knew it except he and his wife...
But they had told all theirfriends they were gonna have a party that night.. And during that party they suddenly told every1 they got married and it was a wedding party instead of a regular party : ))
Nobody believed it at first since it was April 1st : DD
What a great idea Big Smile
 Macubaas06/04/2011 10:53:43 GMT
It's clear it was a 1st April Fool.
 dealmeout106/04/2011 11:50:13 GMT
And I was gonna move to Vegas and take over the high-stakes scene. Now my plans are foiled because Ivey remains. One day. One day.
 leaf6407/04/2011 13:29:20 GMT
I got up early and put a nice thin layer of vaseline on the toilet seat for April fools day and watched my friend go for a wild ride when she sat down on it.She woke up quickly !!
 andy552107/04/2011 16:27:27 GMT
When i saw it i thought what the hell but then thought phil ivey wins millions a month playing poker so why would he quit, hes like one of the best players in the world after tom dwan.
 Fackinas07/04/2011 18:12:54 GMT

I just couldn't believe that someone as well known and skilled as him would quit. You see him all the time on the TV shows and it just wasn't logical for something like this to be true. I'm pretty sure Phil will be playing poker into his late 70's, just like Doyle Tongue
 eorituz11/04/2011 12:07:50 GMT
haha I falled ^^ nice one Smile
 jewelz0313/04/2011 05:11:20 GMT
An player like him who play high stakes and make millions of dolars profit will never end play poker...
