SEO No Limit Texas Hold’em Poker Tournament

On Saturday, May 27th at 12:15 Eastern, SEO Black Hat will be running a private No Limit Texas Hold’em Poker Tournament at Party Poker for the SEO and Blogosphere Community. The entrance will be $110 and prizes will be paid out based on the number of entrants.

Some big names in SEO have already agreed to participate including: Jeremy Shoemaker (AKA shoemoney), Jim Boykin (we build pages), David Naylor (AKA DaveN), and Jason Duke (Strange Logic). You can listen to DaveN and JasonD on Strikepoint and shoemoney here.

As we SEOs are always battling the search engines, I invite Matt Cutts, Jeremy Zawodny and Robert Scoble to play: I will pay their entrance fees should they choose to participate and, if I am knocked out of the Tournament by any of them, I will donate $10,000 to a charity of their choice. (note: They must accept in the next 7 days for the bounty to apply).

No limit means there is no limit to how many of your chips you can bet on a given hand. It will be a $110 dollar buy-in and everyone will start with the same number of chips. So, $110 is all you could loose. If we get more than 100 entrants, 1st prize will be more than $2,500 with payouts down to 20th place or more.

If you would like to play poker with some of your favorite Bloggers and SEOs – here is your chance. Everyone who signs up will be put on the Tournament Participant list along with a link to their websites. This way everyone will know who they are playing against.

It’s going to be a lot of fun. I’m sure they’ll be some colorful table talk, some great networking and I expect a healthy turn out. So what are you waiting for? Sign up now.

  10. [...] As a side note, I was talking with quadzilla from SEO Blackhat (who, btw, is running a SEO blackjact tournament for anyone who is interested) and he gave me another idea regarding XSS detection that I have been thinking about for quite a while.  One of the major problems on the internet today is the fact that a ton of websites are running canned software with bugs in it (drupal, PHPNuke, etc…).  If you subscribe to some of the webappsec mailing lists you probably can see the sheer volume of new XSS exploits being discovered on a daily basis.  It’s fairly trivial to use Google to detect which websites are running the software in particular (by searching by keywords used by that software), and then use the returned lists of sites to launch automated XSS attacks, to improve pagerank.  Pretty scary, and pretty easy.
