Going to the WSOP

by Lou on June 1, 2005

I made my reservations yesterday and will be leaving for the World Series of Poker Sunday June 5. I’m going to be staying through June 8, with plans to return at the end of the month or the beginning of July for the main event. Right now my plans are to play in the limit hold’em event on Sunday June 5, the Omaha/8 event on Monday, and depending on a gazillion other things, I may play in the Short-handed (6/table) no-limit hold’em event on Tuesday or I may skip it and take care of other business. On Wednesday I’ve got other things to do that include visiting with the editors of Nevada Sunday, dropping in at Gambler’s Book Store, and visiting with any of the folks from Royal Vegas Poker and from Bluff Magazine who might be around.

I went round and round about where to stay, and finally opted to stay at the Horseshoe. Even though the WSOP has moved to the Rio, I like being downtown where I can walk from one casino to another. I’ll have my car with me so getting back and forth to the Rio won’t be a problem at all. And besides, I’m used to the Horseshoe. I’ve stayed there so many times it’s almost like a second home. But it will be interesting to see if it still feels the same way now, one year and a few months after the new management took over. Somehow, I don’t think it will, but I’m approaching it with an open mind.

If you see me around, please say “Hello.” And if you’re playing in any of the events, good luck to you all…..
