WSOP season!

The start of the WSOP each year is a cause for optimism for poker players worldwide.  Many thousands of aspiring poker players arrive in Las Vegas each year to take their shot.  Maybe they will just play in the Main Event or maybe they will just play in one or two preliminary events or maybe they will play as many events as they can for two months.  All of them harbor the secret fantasy that they will catch fire, make the right moves at the right time, and win a bracelet or three or four.  Will some newcomer arrive and be this year’s Jeff Madsen, winning multiple bracelets and fame and fortune?  Will it be you or me?  We all have those dreams and there is no better time than now, when all dreams are possible and there are no bad beats.

I’m planning to play as many events as I can squeeze in starting this weekend and I hope to be able to report fantastic success to you in a few weeks.  I’ve foolishly accepted money from friends to “invest” in my play.  It is a small percentage of the money I’m putting at risk, but it makes me feel a bit more pressure.  I don’t want to squander their cash.  I feel very sharp and I have been playing pretty well lately.  I think I’m seeing the game as well as I ever have.  If I can just get the right breaks here and there, I hope to report on some good outcomes in the coming weeks.  I’m traveling on my own, so my focus will exclusively be on poker and playing well.

Fingers crossed.
