    LOL, Tim, these are great! Definitely a fun year filled with highs and lows throughout.

    But none of the laughs and learning would be possible without this site in the first place.

    Thanks for all the hard work and dedication. It shows.

    I defer one award to TIME: "Most Consistent Purveyor of Puns."

    I cannot hold a candle to the master.

    Sorry, Danger ... I plan to go two years in a row with that one!

    Thanks for the awards, Tim and has been said by others, thanks for Pokerology and the forum.

    Also, thanks to the Quesmeister for flipping first and seconds on the puns! What a guy ... you're next on my meet and greet list.

    I think I should have won 'most consistent purveyor of puns'. It's a fix!

    Happy New Year everyone!

    So says the man who is sitting in the secure, headquarter bunker of Pokerology controlling all the buttons and switches!
