No, it's not for the WPBT July girly thingy. No, I'm booked for the kick ass August 2-6 weekend. Going in July was out of the question for G-Rob and I, so we're going to win WSOP events in August instead. The plane tickets are bought.
One thing I'm sorry I'm going to miss that July weekend is the first real poker-blogging, WPBT participant in history to play on American television! Jen Leo won a seat into the Mansion Poker Speed Poker tournament that airs on Fox Sports Net. I sure hope she gets a chance to drop the HAMMER! My luckbox skills are available to borrow if you need them that day. [Editor's note: As DoubleAs correctly points out, he landed on Canadian TV. They have TV up there? I have also updated to stress the WPBT nature of the blogging.]
Finally, the WSOP really gets under way tomorrow with the first full-field event (the casino employees play today). You can anticipate coverage from the regulars: Pauly at Tao of Poker, PokerProf and Co. over at LasVegasVegas.com, and I'm assuming The Spaceman will be doing some coverage for Bluff Magazine eventually. Of course, the best live-blogger in the world (I'm biased)
will be out there soon, too is there now. At least in time for the Main Event, if not earlier, From now, through the Main Event, Otis will be dropping his knowledge over at the PokerStars blog (And I'm hearing some rumors that Otis will take his coverage to multimedia levels never seen at the WSOP! Stay tuned!).
