Chimps go to Washington

by Lee Watkinson |  Published: Jul 19, '08


Well I went out of the Bellagio Cup on a a bad call. Paid off David Phams set of dueces with top pair of Jacks, drawing almost dead.

I am now going into a month of not playing other than at home on internet. I will be doing some work on the Jewelry line and going up to Washington State to visit a group of chimps we helped get out of biomedical research, this is where the proceeds from a recent charity tournament I hosted on Fulltilt went, and thanks again to Fulltilt for doubling the amount actually raised through the tournament before sending it on. Check out what is going on there at..

It may not look like much to you, but to these guys, comming from a dungeon where they basicly only ate the equivelant of dry dog food, this is paradise.

This afternoon I am heading over to Anaheim to watch Fedor's fight. He is consiered by most people to be the greatest heavyweight MMA fighter. I don't ussually like to attend fights, prefering to stay home and pay-per-view, but this is special. I am very excited. Then when I get home I will be able to watch the Tivo of Anderson Silva's fight, it should be a mismatch even though he is moving up to light heavyweight.
