Sixty Cent Main Event

Aaron Todd won 60¢ in a free online poker tournament. When the US government passed the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act, he was left holding the check and had no idea what to do with it. He asked the readers of his blog what he should do with the money and one suggested he trade it for something better - until he had a ticket to the Main Event at this years World Series of Poker

Mr. Todd, traded his sixty cent check for 500 poker chips, which he traded for an original ABA basketball (one of the red white and blue jobs) autographed by the Indiana Pacers, which he has since traded for two pieces of the house that Jimi Hendrix grew up in.

Mr. Todd has a long way to go and a short time to get there - he's gonna do what they said can't be done. He's east bound and down, rollin up and truckin' his way to the WSOP. If you've got something you want to trade for scraps of Hendrix' house... visit his website and make an offer.
