Last week, 101 players showed up on game day for the Ultimate Poker Forum Open, the biggest Blogger Poker Tour tourney to date. Good old No Limit Texas Hold'em was the name of the game, which saw kufolem battle back and overcome Haley's massive chip lead.

4 events remain, and while it's still anyone's Blogger Poker Tour, the lead lap seems to be defining itself. Viezeman sits atop the leaderboard via 2 top 20 finishes and a launch bonus. brodoughno, perhaps the most consistant playa on the tour, with three top ten finishes sits in fourth place. Winners kufolem, and natsdad sit third and fifth respectively, while DawgRoyal, week two host sits in second place.

Today, we add a twist to the blogger poker tour. No longer are we playing NL Texas Hold'em. Omaha is the name of the game. Irongirl's Omaha A Go-Go is next and we're here live at the Poker Pub with complete coverage of Event Four of the Blogger Poker Tour Season Two.

As always, we'll be following the action of the Beer Guy, the hostess, and some of the top players of the BPT Leaderboard. For up to the minute and 100% accurate chip counts, feel free to pop in to the official tournament update page.

There's still plenty of time to register for today's event. With two hours remaining before we shuffle up n deal, we have 90 peeps registered. I wouldn't be the least bit surprised if we surpass last week's field.

Anyone wishing to become a member of the Blogger Poker Tour may register here. Must be a blogger and have a blog to join...

We'll be back shortly for live coverage.

2.50... 10 minutes from go time, and we're five shy of the century mark.

2.52... comments are adjusted so that anyone participating in today's BPT event can come in and talk shop... Be it a bad beat story, braggin bout a suckout, or just to say hey...

2.55... Just been seated, with Brunsia, z0ot62 to my left, followed by OhioMike, ZowieZ, last week's winner kufolem, isinm2006, and finally Twodogs69 to my right.

*** other table of note, ViezeMan - our tour leader, with Enortone, Meerkat, Just1ce, purechaos, mpgabriel and astinaguy.

Our hostess, irongirl, sits with kugr84, biggestron, abstratto, goliath2180 (represented poker.com at the aussie millions in 2006), sweblackbird, skinski, and chatuba

4.26... down to four tables... maybe with playing and three tables, my commentary can be a bit more managable... though the whole four cards in 1 hand does in fact kinda throw me off a bit...

4.27... blinds 200/400... astina leaves my table, heads on over to chill with lightning...

4.30... mtldon, pearlsnapman stop over, as we're now three tabling...
