Doppler’s at the doggy sitter’s. We’ve taken the show on the road. Four hours in the car and we’re in Las Vegas.
This is a very exciting part of the Vegas year because the World Series of Poker is underway. There is the main event, guaranteed to pay over $10 million, plus five dozen more smaller tournaments.
Tomorrow at noon Helaine sits down at Event #53: Ladies No-Limit Hold’em Championship. She’ll be playing for cash, plus a WSOP bracelet.
I am VERY excited for my wife. She’s a really good poker player and gives up nothing against this field.
There is lots of skill necessary to play competitive poker. But, of course, there is the element of luck. A poorly played hand can win. Aces sometimes can be beat!
Only the top 10% of the finishers get any cash with the majority going to the three top. We expect close to 1000 players.
Most likely Helaine will come home with nothing more than a fun experience.
This is the big leagues and she’s going to be seeing big league moves. That’s worthy of some adrenaline. She’s a little nervous.
We have no expectations.
I’m very proud and very excited.
