    My Trip Report

    Just getting the thread setup so I can update hopefully daily while I am out there. I will be playing in the main event of the WSOP and starting on Monday 7/9. I'll be arriving 7/7 and staying at Paris - for some reason CET got me in there free for at least a week, so I'm jumping on that offer. The free shuttle to and from Rio at Ballys next door was another reason for selecting Paris.

    I will take photos and share from the iPad - hopefully the TR will have more WSOP war stories and victories than other content, but either way I am going to keep this updated throughout the week. Going to try a 360 degree panoramic photo from the middle of the Amazon Room at Rio to show how many tables are playing.

    I'll have my wife with me the whole time I am there, also have a friend coming out the first half of the week - one of my poker buddies who wants to get a pic of me playing on day 1 of the main event (just in case there isn't a day 2!).

    My next update will hopefully be from the Calais Suite at Paris tomorrow afternoon!

    I played in two events a couple of years ago. Not the main event. I didn't finish in the money in either though. But the cost of the buy in was well worth the experience.
    You are already a winner if you go into with that mind set. Of course cashing would be a much better experience.

    Have fun at your first series!

    Remember, the main event is a marathon not a sprint. :)

    Good luck! I'm looking forward to the TR.

    I hope you suck out on Hellmuth and he goes off on a rant.
