Let's face it: You're a trendsetter. When this poker craze first hit, you were already all over it. Challenging your friends, playing on the computer at work, watching it on TV: Your life was a nonstop poker fiesta. You're really good at the game, yet now you're so over it -- but you love charity. So break out those cards one last time, and start practicing seven-card stud for the 24th annual Budweiser Poker Classic. This thing's been benefiting the local chapter of the Muscular Dystrophy Association far longer than you've been playing, so the cause is good and the time is right. Your last opportunity to enter is at 7 p.m. today at the Holiday Inn St. Louis Southwest-Viking Conference Center (10709 Watson Road, Sunset Hills). Bring $30 for your suggested donation, and either register at the door beginning at 5 p.m. or call 314-962-0023 to pre-register.
