Saturday, I took part in the $1,000 buy-in “Stimulus Event” at the WSOP. As expected, the place was a zoo of people and just got worse the closer that we got to the start of the event. Around 3,000 players started Day 1a of the event, and I was one of those located in the Brasilia Room. My table was the pretty standard mix of players.

Checking Out the WSOP

Yesterday, I took a trip over to check out the setup for the WSOP, try my hand at some satellites, and register for the Stimulus Event. The crowd at the Rio was right small due to only cash games and satellites running. The Scene at the Rio When you first arrive to the convention center, the first thing you will notice upon walking in is the typical covered red carpet entry. This has a mist blower operating that tries to help cool you off a bit.

The World Series of Poker kicks off in less than two week. I have made my final plans to head out to Vegas for about a month. I’m actually going to drive cross country to Vegas instead of fly like most people do. I enjoy the adventure of it all and enjoy seeing different parts of the country.
