Main Event wrap-up

Above: The Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino is the venue for the World Series of Poker.

Now that I'm home, it's time to look back at the WSOP Main Event. Most tournaments are ho-hum, but there's something about the Main that gets your blood pumping. I'm hoping to play again next year to atone for some of this year's sins.

Do you have a fitness band? I wear a Fitbit Charge 2, a toy/gizmos I enjoy. It displays my pulse, and I have a low one (in the 62-66 range). While playing in the main, I noticed it was often 72ish. After one big hand where the villain (unsuccessfully) bluffed me, I noticed it was 85.

My fitness band also records my sleep. I noticed the three nights before I played, I only slept 6+ hours. The nights in-between, I slept 8 hours. Sleep is important. What can I do next year to improve on this? I also noticed late in Day 1 and Day 2, I lost chips. Was I tired and not playing as well?

I did eat properly. When I play, I see guys on their dinner break with plates piled high. You will find me eating a salad.

What else can I do to maximize my chances next time?

Above: Bring money. There are plenty of things to buy if you have coin of the realm.

Above: The Masquerade Tower is part of the Rio. I think it's for the high rollers. Guess what? I've never stayed there.

  1. How can you improve? First get better cards! Second get lucky. Third take chances when you sense weakness. Fourt be patient while waiting for the first three.

  3. The third photo is pretty nice, I think it's the angle and the colors. I can't answer the question since you have many more years of experience than me!

  4. In a lot of ways, it's a war of attrition stamina contest. Prepping for the main event is probably very similar to prepping for a long multi-day bridge event like the Spingold (or its mini-variants)

  5. Great trip report! Thanks so much. I really enjoyed the information about your heart rate. I now wear a smart watch and will be interested to see what it records the next time I play poker.

    You're very right to focus on sleep as an important aspect of the Main. This took me a while to improve on. It helps a lot to be used to the tournament; when it's less of a novelty, it's easier to unwind after the day's play.
