I realize that is the only one impacted, and there are smaller events that I had already been looking at trying to play. However, I had already blocked out the days on the calendar for time up there on the Main. Obviously I can now open those back up..

Sad to see changes like this being made...but on the bright side, I guess is opens up funds for a few of the WSOPc events I might not otherwise have considered later in the year.

5 card stud? I’m not good enough for that one. It takes me seven to make a hand

If anyone is playing the monster stack July 19 be sure to say hi early as I will probably get knocked out quickly then i’ll head for video poker machines.

Why no high roller or any side event with a buyin over $500 this year? Much easier to justify a trip all the way to Choctaw with a few bigger buyins on the schedule
