My Best Wishes to ringo's in the $1,000.00 Buy-in Event 54 this weekend. I watch all the stats and updates, and will be looking and hoping my other site's fantasy picks won't be taking you out, unless it's Scott Montgomery from Perth Ontario, sorry dude, have to cheer for good Canadian kid there....rofl, j/k guy, take him out, along with KidPoker if they're in

Would really like to hear that you took out the unCanadian, as I saw the last couple years he's taken the US Flag as his home in WSOP records. Wonder where he's playing online from now-a-days?....lol...probably some Island he bought that's just off the US shore...rofl...

Anyways Ringos, you have a blast, and we'll be here to read your blogs, and looking forward to your post when you return, regardless of where you finish, should be a cool experience.

Stake.

WSOP 2011 at the RIO LAS VEGAS - Tue Jul 05, 2011, 09:22 PM

I attended the WSOP 2011 and played in 2 events, one a bracelet event and the other a daily WSOP event. I played the $1,000 WSOP Bracelet event that started on Sunday, June 26th with 2,890 entrants. To back up... the WSOP in Las Vegas is very, very large, has it own kitchen/restaurant and many side rooms with stores and corridor vendors down the main hallway. The registration room is approximately half mile from the front desk....lol.

In playing the event I was sitting at table 378 to start about 1.4 mile from the main room. After playing successfully for about 5 hours we were finally moved to the main room, which was about as big as 2-3 football fields. I was sitting in seat 4 at table 48, by the rail, when they seated Phil Helmuth at seat No. 2. He didn't really look at anybody when they all said welcome. He had headphones on so he couldn't here the guy in seat No. 1 jabbering nervously to him...lol. I said nothing, nor did I even look at him, in case I happened to get in a hand with him, I wanted to be obscure so he couldn't get a read on me. He played most of his hands with his arm across the table in front of him and his head down on his arm. Mainly, because the railers were snapping pictures and he was trying to keep his composure, which went into outer space very soon after he arrived. He got in a hand with the guy in the 7th seat and played it wrong by not betting on the flop. So, he pulled his "Phil" act out and, stood up slammed the table turned around and replayed the hand out loud. It went on like this for an hour...lol.

Anyway, out of the 28,90 players I made it down to just under 600, but the ITM was at 297, so I failed to cash in my first WSOP....wahhhh.

I also played the WSOP daily event on Tuesday, July 28th, at 10PM. that lasted till the next day, when I went out 19th, right on the bubble, since they paid 18 players.

I've been playing live for only 6 weeks, since the middle of May, at the Bicycle Club Casino in Los Angeles. I've only played in 5 tournaments prior to the WSOP, so I may play it again. It is so much different than the local Club. The players are from all over the world, play pretty straight-up poker and no donkeys. If you're willing to fly thousands of miles from a different country and put up $1,000 per tourney, pay for a hotel and food, you have to be pretty serious about your poker.

The PSO, playing every day for 5 months, taking all the seminars, really, really helped form a battle plan of precisely how wanted to play. That, and being a Statistics Professor, made my first WSOP experience enjoyable. I made no mistakes and couldn't have played any hands differently. I do have to learn how not to be so tense, as the sides on my neck were board stiff due to being tense, thinking of the possible hands on the board, the odds of hitting certain hands, pot odds and all the many other things I had to go through on every hand, not just mine. I couldn't have done it without the Pokerstars tutorials, seminars, odds calculator and hand relaying benefits....So, "Hats off to Pokerstars"!!
