WSOP 2009 & Poker Hall of Fame
Wed July 15, 2009, 10:30 pm
The Main Event of the WSOP 2009 was a bit of a disappointmement again this year as I went out on the 5th level of day one. Overall the WSOP tournaments has record turnouts despite the poor econmy. That is except for the main event which closed day 4 as a sell out, other wise they would have broken last years total since there were about 500 people turned away.
So the story for next year players is to register for day 1 or 2 (Day 1 only had around 800 players). Each days registration climbed in the number of players. I played in Day 3 and wish I maybe played Day 1 or 2.
I can't complain about this years event as I won the Champion of Champions Event :)
I am very excited and honored to be nominated as one of the 10 people for the Poker Hall of Fame. Of course that is only the first stage of the process. The second stage of the process involves a vote from all the living (15) hall of fame members, as well as selected poker writers. The thrid stage is the selection committee of Harrahs executives who will make the final decision.
For the past several years there have been two players inducted. So I guess I will have to wait to find out who the November 9 from the WSOP Main Event are until November to find out who the two inducties are.
Until then I'm off to Florida to host a Poker Tournnment for a WPT event at the Borgata. While I'm there I think I'll be taking a few sunny days by the pool as well as playing online at Poker Stars.
Good luck on the felt...
