Our good friends at SURF Incubator welcomed us back this month — thanks Seaton and Neil!  And we welcomed back the awesome Thai food from Mae Phim that had been a staple of Poker 2.0 for years and years.  We tought we’d try some other catering options to mediocre effect — what were we thinking?!

Thaks also to our long-time sponsor, Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati.  WSGR hasn’t placed in the money in a while… congrats James Gannon for breaking that streak. This Poker 2.0 event couldn’t happen without the help of our sponsors — so thank them when you see them!

We had a special guest at the tables, Techstars Seattle program associate Egita Polanska — and she was packin’ Techstars t-shirts.  Egita has

played in a couple of Poker 2.0 events in the past and has shown some flashes of brilliance.  She didn’t make it to the final table this time around but she wasn’t there for the fame and

fortune.  Egita’s mission was to spread the word about the opening of the application process for Seattle Techstars program.  If you have a startup ready to take a massive step forward, email Egita at egita.polanska
