Warming up for the WSOP

Above: Seminole Hard Rock Tampa is the venue for the World Poker Tour for the next 10 days.

I'm leaving next Wednesday (June 13) for my mandatory pilgrimage to Las Vegas for the World Series of Poker. The Seniors is a must-play event and I might/probably play in one other bracelet event. There are so many tournaments to choose from (besides WSOP), that I'm not even sure what else I'll play in. Twitter will be a place where I occasionally report my status. Look me up as @memphismojo.

This blog will also be active during that time (I return Monday, June 25). If I do lousy, then, hey, I'll at least try and post some interesting photos.

To warm up for the Series, I decided to trot over and play in the World Poker Tour Deep Stacks which has just come to Tampa to the Seminole Hard Rock Casino Tampa. The first event is one of these with multiple Day 1s with the qualifiers gathering together Sunday for the final. I played Thursday and advanced nicely being on of the early chip leaders. (See here, scroll down.)

Above is what 242,000 chips looks like, the amount I'm advancing to Sunday with. Big blind will (I believe) be 4,000, so I have lots of them.

  1. Here we go again! I know how much you enjoy these events, and I wish you the best of luck and everything else. May you come back home richer than when you left!

  2. Nice way to warm up.

    Make that a smokin' way.

  3. Way to go Mojo. I might try to come see the Sunday action over there. If so I will definitely look for you. If not, good luck at the Hard Rock and in Vegas at the WSOP.
