All John, all day. We're so excited for him! And this is just an awesome picture. Thanks so much to the Poker News staff and especially Change100 for keeping us updated at the final table. This finish was great to wake up to!
Have a lot of fun tonight guys!!!!
Here's what Poker News put up in their News Flash box:
Schecky Suffers ‘CrackBerry’ Withdrawal Always-connected PokerNews.com Editor-in-Chief John ‘Schecky’ Caldwell found himself unable to access his beloved ‘CrackBerry’ (BlackBerry) or cel phone recently, but with good reason --- he was at the final table of Event #4 in the ongoing PokerNews Cup in Melbourne, Australia. Schecky entered the final table third in chips, then stayed in the mix to be one of five players with nearly even chip counts to participate in a late deal, pocketing $24,800 in Aussie dollars. Schecky eventually took down the title, coming from behind to eliminate runner-up Marcel Roosen and claim the AU $29,800 first prize. Congrats, John!
John will be back in the U.S. on Oct. 31, 2007.
