My journey to the WSOP Main Event

Hello everyone,



Welcome to my blog!

I have a dream. That dream is to play as much live main events as possible. Smaller events, bigger ones like EPT's, WPT's and eventually my ultimate dream : The WSOP Main Event.

This means not only playing (qualifiers) but also study, study, and study. Read books, watch training video's. Analyzing my plays. Evaluate hands. Pokerschool is a great way to learn as it has a great community where you can exchange experiences and ask for advice.

I have qualified online, through PokerStars, for the Main Event of the Belgian Open Poker Championship 2012 (BOCP), which was held in Namur, Belgium last december.

My first live event; that was some experience I will never forget! And certainly one that confirmed for me that at live events is where my heart is. I was eliminated on Day 2, not ITM unfortunately but being amongst all these great players and learning from them (and hopefully one day beat them too) is something never to forget.

I was welcomed by some PokerStars employees in a very warm and friendly way. I felt at home . On top of that, the package that I won included a meet and great with one of my personal hero's : Marcel Luske. We had an interesting conversation and had a wonderful dinner. The guy is a genius and and funny and easy going personality to go along with.

So this is where my journey starts and with that, my blog....  on my way to play more live events and eventually the WSOP Main Event!
