Today kicked off Day 1b of the $1,000 NL Holdem Event here at the 2010 WSOP. As some of you know, blogger Frank Wilburn registered in this event. I personally did not get here in time to see this event kick off but Frank did hang in there long enough for me to get there and get a shot of him. Looks like he is having my Day 1a yesterday.

Today is the day

Here it is.   Today is the day I play in my very first WSOP event.    And let me say that I am excited.   Yesterday we decided we wanted to play some card, so we went down to the Excalibur and played in the 9am $25 tourney.

Goal 400x300
Today was the start of Event #3, the $1,000 NL Holdem Event. I got up and was well rested for today’s event and did most of my usual preparations. I arrived to the Rio about an hour early for the event and decided to hang out in the media tower until the start of the event. I didn’t want to be packed into a hall with potentially 3,000 other players.

I have arrived

Well my plane landed here in Las Vegas with no problems.   We got our rental car and drove out to the house.   I am staying in a house this time around instead of the hotels.   Its a great house and I think I will be much more comfortable  and relaxed here.

2010 World Series of Poker Day 1 - Employee's Event Kicks off 2010 WSOP

28 May 2010 , By: compncards
Event 1 400x300
A new chapter in poker history begins today. The first event of the 2010 World Series of Poker kicked off at Noon with the $500 Casino Employee’s Event. Jack Effel, Tournament Director for the World Series of Poker, kicked off the event with introductions and a couple of brief announcements. He then “attempted” to get the room to join him in the obligatory “Shuffle Up and Deal” call, but in reality it was just Jack that made the call.

Well here I go.   Today is the day that I leave for Las Vegas and the Series.   My trip will not be like Comp's.   I am flying and it is but a two hour flight from Amarillo to Sin City.
