    How about a team of Red Hot All-Stars. These are notable players who Russ has verified that they are who they say they are and get free subs and RHP merchandise to wear at their OTB tournaments. Obviously this is a crossover idea from online poker.

    You were thinking of whom? Greenpawn? Fat Lady? Weyerstrass?

    I was thinking of the top-rated players.. but greenpawn might qualify as a "celebrity"

    a celebrity....a poxy celebrity?

    Looky here matey.

    These bozo's might be OK taking days over a move but sitting OTB opposite
    me staring into my mad maniac eyes with half my chess set hanging has
    wilted the best of them.

    Even my own pieces tremble with fear when I sit down at the board.

    a Celebrity indeed. the damn cheek of the fellow.

    Call it Greenpawn's All Stars, make me captain and I might, I might, consider it.
    (and I want paid).

    ps:












    Actually if they sent something I'd wear it.
    I'd even put a pic of me on The Corner wearing it - why not.

    What happens if one of the Red Hot All-Stars gets banned in the future?

    We would send him the:

    "I got Banned from Red Hot Pawn." T-shirt.

    "I got Banned from Red Hot Pawn because of section 3(b)."

    And on the back of the t-shirt the TOS would be written out in full

    To be fair it could also be a 3c offence, when witch hunter went too far
