Common Cents: You could be sitting on a gold mine

The best thing about the Common Cents Series, which started on PokerStars yesterday, is that you already have the buy-in.

There's no need for satellites, or saving up.

The choice isn't between the buy-in or a new car.

The choice isn't even between the buy-in or a weekend away.

It's more like the buy-in or a cheeseburger.

What's more you might already be sitting on a gold mine.

The sofa, for instance, is usually home to a few lost coins.

And all those pennies you keep in a jar. That'll go a long way to covering buy-ins.

And what about that junk drawer in the kitchen?

That place in every house where things mysteriously gather, along with string, arcade tokens, and superglue.

Pennies too.

Before you know it, you'll have the buy-in for the next event.

Maybe even the $12.77 to play the entire series.

Because here's what's coming up this week.
