You may have noticed that the World Series of Poker has started. You may or may not have noticed that I am not there. Let me explain. I’m getting married next weekend, and since I really can only do about half a WSOP without getting burnout anyway, I decided to only play the second half of the WSOP this year. Rest assured, once I’m there I’ll be updating routinely in this space, as well as (God help us all) twittering updates as I play.
In the meantime, when I’m not doing wedding prep I’ve been trying to brush up on some of the games I don’t know as well. If I can manage to get up to speed on those games before I get to Vegas, then here is my likely schedule of events (subject to change, of course):
6/19: $2,000 Limit Hold ‘Em – Event 38
6/20: $1,500 No Limit Hold ‘Em – Event 39
6/21: $2,500 Mixed Games – Event 42
6/22: $2,500 Razz – Event 44
6/24: $2,500 Mixed Hold ‘Em – Event 47
6/25: $1,500 Pot Limit Omaha 8/b – Event 48
6/26: $1,500 Limit Hold ‘Em Shootout – Event 50
6/27: $1,500 No Limit Hold ‘Em – Event 51
6/28: $3,000 Triple Chance No Limit Hold ‘Em (whatever that means) – Event 52
6/29: $1,500 No Limit Hold ‘Em – Event 54
$10,000 No Limit Hold ‘Em Main Event – 57
If I’m running good I may also throw in the $5,000 6-max NLHE event, but I expect that to be a very tough field, and will probably skip it. And of course, making a few Day Twos would cut down on the schedule somewhat. Just think, I could go 0-for-11 and still be $10,000 ahead of everyone who played Event 2 and didn’t cash!
Good luck to everyone already at the WSOP. Try to still have some money left when I get out there…
