Weekly PJK Tourney at Planet

I have just heard from Planet Poker about the weekly tourney. Here is the deal with pre-registration:

If you have pre-registered for the weekly tourneys, and would like to play for that week, you will be automatically signed up via your e-mail address on Planet. The tourneys are $19+1. You may unregister any time during the week, or if there is a last minute emergency, all the way up until the time of the tournament. You will not be able to register yourself. If you see the tourney listed, and try to register, you will not be allowed. You must go through me or Planet. I get no money for doing this, so don't think I'm trying to scam you in some way. I am doing this purely for us, the poker journalizer's out here in cyberspace.

Planet tells me that only nine of the e-mail addresses I sent her of interested players even have an account on Planet. The rest have not opened an account. You will not be able to wait until the last moment to open an account. Planet has no way to password protect tournaments at this time, although they have promised this for us down the road, if we stick it out until their next software update. As compensation, they are offering us a $1 rake, which is better than anywhere else on the Internet.

Please, if you are interested in playing this tournament, like the players who wrote me on the left side of this journal, sign up for a Planet account. You do not have to sign up via the e-mail Glenn sent out, you can sign up any way you choose, taking advantage of any offer you would like. You cannot play in the weekly tourney if you don't have a Planet account.
