Quick WSOP Update

by The Poker Academy |  Published: Jul 01, '15


It’s been I while since I have had some time to sit down and write. I just wanted to give a quick update on how the WSOP had gone.
I have played 27 events so far.
I have cashed in 6 of these. 3 were big field NL events and 3 were 10k championship events. 4 cashes was my previous best. So I am happy with that. I haven’t been able to run deep enough to have a big payday yet. In fact, if I don’t cash again, I will only be a small winner in tournaments for the summer.
I have 3 tournaments left to go, the 10k HORSE, 10k Dealer’s Choice and the Main Event.
The Horse is today (Weds the 1st). The DC is Friday and I plan to play the main on Monday the 6th. In between, if I am out of those events, I will attend the Chad Brown memorial tourney on the 2nd, and relax the 4th and 5th of July with the family. But I am really rooting to be “stuck ” at the Rio winning one of these tournies….
