WSOP 2008

I'm going to Vegas for the start of the WSOP for the first time. I've booked from May 29th till June 20 which will be my longest stint in Vegas so far. I'll probably come home for a week and then fly back for a few of the final tournaments.... here is my rough schedule!

May 30th - World Championship Pot-Limit Hold'em $10000
June 2nd - Pot-Limit Hold'em $1500
June 3rd - No-Limit Hold'em w/ReBuys $1500
June 4th - No-Limit Hold'em $2000
June 5th - No-Limit Hold'em / Six Handed $2500
June 7th - No-Limit Hold'em $2500
June 10th - Pot-Limit Omaha $1500
June 11th - No-Limit Hold'em $5000
June 12th - Pot-Limit Holdem/Omaha $2500
June 13th - World Championship Heads Up No-Limit Hold'em $10000
June 14th - Pot-Limit Omaha W/Rebuys $5000
June 16th - No-Limit Hold'em / Six Handed $2500
June 18th - Pot-Limit Omaha W/ReBuys $1500
June 29th - World Championship Pot Limit Omaha $10000
July 3rd - World Championship No-Limit Texas Hold'em $10000

I reckon a disasterous trip would set me back around $90000 in buy ins! I also need to take enough money to play cash games too. So it could be a sick month....

Hi Ben

Good luck with the tournaments. Look forward to the blog updates. Any plans to play high stakesa cash?

most of these tournaments are on consecutive days so how can you play them all because I assume if you go deep they last more than a day?

Seriously Ben..that's one heck of a schedule. You're an animal. Good luck man!

I plan on playing some cash in Vegas. Not sure how big yet. Would probably take a shot at $100/$200... no bigger though as i wouldnt want to lose all my tournament $$$

Yeh if i make day 2 of a tournament then i won't enter the one the following day :-)

Your time has come Ben, this is your year !
Seeing as it's gone so far, and how zen you seem to be compared to the previous couple of years (check out january...), I am sure you'll get there with so much confidence and zenitude that you'll make it a great WSOP.

Good luck.

Eek. That's a sick line-up. Hope you're well rolled for the cash games. If you lose in the ring games, will you still play all the tourneys.

I'll be working at ringside with PokerNews during those dates, so see u there.

Good luck with the tournament. The community card games are my favourite... It looks like you have enough Omaha and Texas games to last you a while. Good luck!

Best of luck with the WSOP tourney. I'm thinking about signing up for the WSOP Academy for the poker training courses. I heard they are offering an Advanced No-Limit Hold'em Academy... might be fun!
