A warm welcome from the Methuselah Foundation volunteers and supporters to the newest members of The Three Hundred: Justin Bonomo and Patrice Levin. Those of you familiar with the poker world might recognize Justin’s name:
The results speak for themselves. I played eight out of the twelve events, and I final tabled FOUR of them. Literally the toughest players in the world were playing all of these events, and only a few players were able to make two final tables. NO ONE made more than three final tables, except for me of course. There is no debate that I had the best performance at this tournament.
I am also happy to say that as I promised a few months ago, I will be giving 5% of my winnings to www.Sens.org. I said this would include the two 5k events and the 15k events, but it seems silly to include only 3 of my 4 final tables, so I will be giving them 5% from all of these events. This comes out to $13,250 which I hope can make a difference. Peter Theil pledged to match 50% of all donations towards SENS research, so this will actually be a $20,000 donation thanks to his help.
Patrice Levin had this to say:
I encourage everyone to consider this most worthwhile project. I for one, would like to be around to see my Granddaughter graduate; the first settlement in space; a trillion sunrises and have time for at least a thousand walks on a beach with my spouse… I want a tomorrow without illness, without memory loss, without the many problems that plague our species. Please give to the Mouse!
Thank you both for taking the initiative to support the Mprize and SENS research! Your donations will join those of many others to help accelerate us all towards the defeat of age-related frailty, disease and death.
