Pretty great news - it's like 95% that I'll be playing the ME. I've already sold 33% (although there's still shares available for any who would like to invest in the dream, hinthint
), and have someone who offered to find one or more investors to cover at least up to 50% if I haven't sold that myself by the tournament.
So yeah, watch out WSOP ME, I'm going to be the first lady to make the FT since 1980something.
This also of course means that I'll be in Vegas for at least a couple days more than I originally planned - arriving on the 5th, leaving whenever I bust (or FT) the ME.
I'll probably say this in a couple of other forums as well, but I'm overwhelmed by the generosity of 2p2. I've had people offer to help find investors, comp a hotel, just completely awesome responses from people who I've never even met in real life. It's kind of humbling and awe-inspiring, IMO.
We very often focus on the negatives - the scams and the bad news - and it's easy to overlook that the poker world is in fact populated almost exclusively by decent, smart, generous people. The bad seeds are the minority, IMO.
