Championship or High Roller; Either Way 116 Too Small

by Roy Winston |  Published: May 29, '10


I am taking this weekend off to relax and have some fun before the real excitement begins for me at the WSOP. I was however surprised that only 116 played in this championship event, it probably should be renamed a high roller event, not championship. I think it should be held closer to the end of the series, not right at the start. I would certainly of played it in that case. As of now I am planning on playing my first event on Thursday June 3rd, the pot limit holdem and will spend the following week to ten days playing continuously. Last year I was at the WSOP or playing cash games the entire time and got a little burned out. This year my plan is a week on and a week off. Of course it’s entirely possibly that once I start I will be like a crack addict and not be able to stop, I guess I will know soon enough.

For those of you in Vegas for the WSOP or any reason really there is a great event for an extremely worthy cause Friday the 4th of June at the Golden Nugget. Fellow Full Tilt Pro Karina Jett is hosting a charity event for Autism. Here is the link to the invitation; your support will be greatly appreciated.

This year, for those of you not able to make it, Full Tilt Poker is running the MSOP or Mini World Series of Poker online, which will have events that mirror the WSOP events on a daily basis at 1/100th the buy-in per event.
