They were announcing that the Horseshoe Casino (owned by Harrah's) is holding a 12-day (the flyer says 11 days, but their marketing people apparently can't count) tournament (click here or click here). I played in this last year. It's a nice little tournament, but I hadn't given much thought to playing this time.
But as I looked again, this caught my eye:
The top five finalists in each event will
compete in a Free Roll Tournament for a
$10,000 seat at the 2010 World Series of
Poker Main Event in Las Vegas, Nevada.
It's a dream of any serious poker player to play in the Main Event, but that $10K entry fee is a deal breaker for most of us. I may just have to go play. Stay tuned.
