My Best Poker Buddy is going to the World Series…….

It’s that time already, the 44th annual World Series of Poker® is just around the corner!

I have a Poker Buddy who has already bought into (won a satellite) the June 7th $1500 HORSE Event at the Rio…………..

Can You make to the Final Table?

Can You make it to a Final Table?

He is now working on collecting another $1500 for the June 10th PLO hi-lo/8 better Event…

Says if he cashes enough on either, he’ll stay for the $5000 buy-in PLO hi-lo/8 better Event on June 13th.

He plays every chance he can (weekly, when possible) at a local poker room, and has won that $1500 seat on a satellite.

I know him well, I guarantee he”ll try a few ring tables to get the feel of Las Vegas Poker and the atmosphere that will be rampant there at that time.

He has told me, he will play a few WSOP satellites while in Vegas, and see where it takes him.

He’ll win something…….I know it!

His style is completely different from my own way, I’m cheap and basically tight/aggressive…..

He’s a maniac, constantly on you, pressuring players, taking chances–but he seems to know just when to back off, he’s ready, he will win something………

He is a outstanding Live Omaha hi-lo 8/b  Player, and is determined to be at a final table and on TV.

From me, and all my readers:   Good Luck, Rod…………………….

2013 WSOP® Details

Last year World Series of Poker® payouts totaled over $222 Million with over 74,700 players competing on 61 Tournaments, this year will see 62 events and even more paid out.

The 2013 Event is planned to be bigger and better than ever, there are plans to spread over 480 tables this year and a couple of new twists have been added, like re entry tournaments which are planned.

A re entry tournament is where you can re-enter the same tournament after you are eliminated. There is a time limit (within the 1st 4 levels) on when you re enter, just like a re-buy tournament.

There are single re entry (only one allowed) and unlimited re entry (as many times as you wish) tournaments

These Re-entries should bolster the pools dramatically and make make it another Record Payout year.

There is also a turbo tournament planned, where the levels at the beginning are set at to play quicker than the later levels. Level 1 to 4 are 30 minutes, level 5-17 are 40 minutes and all levels past 17 are 1 hour.

The Little One for One Drop, (unlike last years $1million buy-in) has only a $1111 buy-in ($111 donated to One Drop).

This means just about everyone can join in, not only helping a very honorable cause, but compete in what looks like will be a very huge tournament pool (unlimited re-entries), my guess would be at least, if not over, a $1 million pool (just 1000 total entries, no problem)…….

Other Events:

Like always, there will be a tournament to match your skill sets.

These include 4 max NLHE, 6 Max NLHE, 8 max NLHE, 2-7 low ball, Omaha, PLO/8b, 7 card stud, 7 card stud /8b, Razz, eight game mix, 512 player NLHE  heads up, a 2000 player shoot-out, ante only NLHE, ladies only event, senior only event and others.
