The phrase “Wife…K” has risen in popularity since the phrase was discovered to be a chat violation on the Full Tilt online poker software.  We’re not exactly certain as to why the phrase is disallowed, but the hilarity of the phrase has launched several chat bans in chat rooms across Full Tilt Poker, with probably none more than the $5+1 events on Thursday Nights.  The popularity of the phrase led to the creation of the “wife…k?” t-shirt, which is now available in the TPT Apparel Shop in mens and womens sizes.

On Thursday morning, avid Twitter Poker Tour enthusiast Tracy Snell (@TracyJSnell) made this pledge on the Twitter Poker Tour Facebook Page:

If you’re in the game come by my table and say ‘wife…k?’. Donating $1 to Fallen Heroes USA for every player that does.”

However, as hands can sometimes go awry, Snell was eliminated early in the event and wasn’t able to make the size pledge that he would have otherwise liked to.  So, TPT President and CEO Geoff Manning (@cprpoker) stepped up to the plate after Snell was eliminated from the tournament and made the offer to continue the pledge promotion saying on Twitter:

We’ll carry the torch from here, we’ll donate $1 to @FallenHeroesUSA for every “wife…k” we see in the chat at the TPT.”

As soon as the tweet went out, the floodgates were opened and “Wife…K” was again dropped at every available opportunity, giving out chat bans and making a relatively silent chat box in the TPT Event, except for the occasional notice from Full Tilt about the abuse of the chat privileges.  In the end, a pledge was made for every member of the TPT on the Thursday night points event meaning that $1 was sent per participant to the charity, which totaled $55.

The Twitter Poker Tour is happy to call The Fallen Heroes USA Foundation a partnered charity and we encourage you to make your own pledge to this worthwhile cause.
