Since my wife , Sculpt51 and myself must get our poker fix elsewhere, we are considering playing in one or both of the WSOP events in Indiana in October and we are wondering who else from PSO we might meet there?

BTW, she won a 100 person tourney , $50 buy in , $1900 first place, at Soaring Eagle casino last week.
Since black Friday the two of us have been playing live games regularly and are actually about $2500 to the good, and a lot of the credit can go to PSO.

Since OCT is a ways away, I may well try to cobble together the cash to attend. those are going to be at the Shoe again?

I am pretty sure The Langolier and Sailor Moe are likely to make a quick stop in, even if I cannot make it!

I probably won't play any tournaments, but the cash games are always great when they're in town, would love to meet you and the wife. Let us know when you'll be up here.

I am waiting for the schedule to see when we will be there. The one event I plan to definitely play is the H.O.R.S.E tourney. We will be there a few days so there should be time to meet up.

I'm going to Vegas at the beginning of Oct, so gotta see what the bankroll is to determine whether I can play or not. If I play one, it'll probably be the last one (wsop on my b-day was when I played in it last time... and could do so again).
I have played in one of the $300 NLHE ones there before and was a real good big tourney (1100+ in it).

Even if I don't play, as long as I'm home when you're going to be there, I'd gladly drive over for a day to run into everyone, as I'm only about an hour or so from there! Guess that gives me a good reason to build up a bankroll for live tourneys, if possible... start with 2 I'm playing next week, hopefully.

Ericnnancy (Eric) said to me that he's planning on playing in at least one of them in Hammond too.

based on the last two yrs, the horse tourney was basically directly in the middle of the range of days.

I do plan on playing a couple of the satellites during the tourney and maybe a PLO or Stud tourney.

We'll have to coordinate and see if we can all meet up one day for dinner or something!

Well, they just released the Southern Indiana schedule and it looks like there is no Omaha, so I will be waiting until Hammond to go down for the WSOP. Hope to see some people there in October.

Hey guys, they just posted the schedule for Hammond. The 19th there is a $200 buy-in Stimulus event (non-ring) and the 20th there is a Limit Omaha, so those will probably be 2 events I will be playing.
