Many of my readers have had a chance to meet my brother, Chapel, in person over the last several years either through blogger events or tournaments. What some of you may not know is he is kicking out quality poker content over at his blog, Gettin' Hammered. In addition, with my online poker play taking a nose dive since poker's black Friday earlier this year, he's playing way more poker than I am with various cash games and tournaments (including quite a few charity tournaments in and around North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia).

In the past year Chapel has traveled to Canada with the AceTenBomber team (pictured above), where he played at The Montreal Open (here are Part 1 and Part 2 trip reports on his blog). He has also been interviewed on Short Stacked Radio, a new poker radio station that debuted in July of this year, boasting some pretty impressive interviewees, such as Phil Hellmuth, who was recently on with the Short Stack crew. One other experience he managed this year was taking down a bad beat jackpot at one of his various underground games. I can't say I've ever taken down a big bad beat haul like he did, but just hearing the story, several times by several people in one weekend, made me feel like I was there. If you ever get the chance to meet Chapel - he's also known as TheGetSomeGuy by some - be sure to ask him about the bad beat jackpot.
If you enjoy reading poker content and are looking for another great blog to add to your RSS reader, be sure to jump over to Chapel's blog and give it a gander. Hook him up with a few comments as well. I know he'd love to see you visit.
Until next time, may the felt be with you.
