It’s Time

BELLAGIO, LAS VEGAS–While feeling good about turning $600 into $2,300 playing 5-10 NLH last night, I caught the back of Phil Hellmuth’s head as he stepped into Bobby’s Room (the high stakes poker room). I was hoping to see him again so I could tell him he was my number one draft pick. However, my thoughts ran back to…One buy-in down, 53 more to go. That’s right, tomorrow starts the race for the WSOP gauntlet, the cash games in Vegas are already packed, and across the highway the Rio is getting ready (hopefully) for a big turn-out.

Tomorrow starts with the inaugural $5k mixed NL/Limit Holdem event at noon, followed by the $500 Casino Employees Event at 5 pm.

Saturday is the first $1500 NLH and people are already in line registering.

    I wonder how many of the uber-excited early-bird registrants will cash.

    I predict a lot of Day 1 bustouts from that group.
