Poker is in the air
I'm signed up for the WSOP Event No. 30. I'm glad I did it today. It took more than an hour of waiting in line. I've heard the crowds are larger than they thought they would be and I'm guessing it will be a madhouse for those who buy their entry Friday morning.
If the Poker Grump reads this and ends up playing, please drop me an e-mail letting me know your seat assignment. I'd like to come shake your hand for the pleasure your blog has given me. dave dot memphismojo at gmail dot com.
The playing areas are full, the lines to the bathroom are long and the 2011 WSOP is under way. I did some recon today and checked out the playing site, the eating arrangements, etc. Then I got a five minute massage which was wonderful. I'm ready coach, put me in.
Here's one of the bracelets that go to the winners. Some say they care about the bracelet more than the money. I don't think I'd go that far, but winning one would be pretty cool for a blogger.
Even the shuttle buses have ads for the WSOP.
