Day Two of the WSOP Begins in a Few Hours

by Lou on July 10, 2007

I woke up this morning to a news item on Las Vegas television telling me that this year’s World Series of Poker had 6,358 entrants. That’s far less than the more than 8,000 players who entered last year, and a drop off was to be expected, given that online sites could no longer preregister players and the effect of the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act (UIGEA) was to reduce the umber of entrants under any circumstances.

The news story also said that first place this year would pay $8 million or more, plenty of money by anyone’s standards.

I survived Day One, which was a grueling affair. We played from noon until past 3:30 AM, which is more than 15 hours of poker. I’m hoping Day Two is a bit more humane and that I continue to play into Day Three.

If I survive today, I’ll have a day off tomorrow and will post to this blog as soon as Iawaken. If I’m knocked out, I plan to drive home and post from there. Stay tuned.
