by Otis


Here's a downloadable .doc file of the schedule to print out and take with you.

Yeah, I do this kind of stuff.

Breaking news

Hey folks. We've had a few late additions to the WPBT schedule. I've added Felicia's sushi dinner and a breakfast with the bloggers.

Also, Felicia has been cool enough to put together a blogger H.O.R.S.E. game for us on Thursday night at the MGM after sushi. PLEASE come to this. It will be a ball and a great chance to talk to each other before the weekend gets too crazy. You'll find the full schedule below. Please leave a comment to let me know if you're interested in the H.O.R.S.E. game.

Thursday June 2, 7:00pm:
Sushi with Felicia at Yami Sushi. See her blog for directions and details. Last year this event was fun enough to draw half a poker room away from the felt. I (Otis) couldn't make it last year because I was waiting on CJ to show up. This year I'm taking Mrs. Otis out for a 5th anniversary dinner. Still, if you haven't met Felicia, you need to. She'll put you in your place and then make you a better poker player inside of half an hour.

Thursday June 2, 11:00pm:
H.O.R.S.E at the MGM Grand. Wanna check out the new MGM Grand poker room? Well, Felicia has put her diplomatic skills to work. MGM has agreed to spread H.O.R.S.E for us Thursday night. It'll be a late game starting at 11PM. Otis and Felicia will be there for sure. I suspect Al will be there as well. We can seat ten, with two sitting out for the Stud rounds. Stakes can be as low as $2/$4. I'd sort of like to make this a blogger meet-up place for late Thursday. So come out and say hi. All else fails, there is a lot of poker there. And I hear bars, as well.

Friday June 3, 10:15am:
The bloggers playing in the WSOP Event #2 will be breakfasting together at the Sao Paulo Cafe at the Rio. This ain't any mandatory event or anything, but we're doing it so we can have one last moment of solidarity, grab a picture and such before going every man for himself into the felty fray. If you wanna stop by and give the boys a good luck hug, feel free.

Friday June 3, Noon:
$1500 NLHE WSOP Event #2, featuring a cavalcade of bloggers. The event will last until there is a final table or until completion of the 12th level (which would come sometime after 1 in the morning). Scott Fischman won $300,000 for first place last year with just 831 entrants.

Friday June 3, about 10pm or later:
Storm the castle!!! Should all bloggers be eliminated early, and I don't expect this to be the case, the bloggers will storm The Excalibur poker room for craziness not seen since Pauly held the Nuts against a guy who just got cold-cocked. The start time of this may vary greatly, but the event is expected to occur.

Saturday June 4, 9:30am:
Registration for the WPBT Aladdin Casino Classic ends. The tourney is scheduled to start at 10am, so please try to be in place as close to 9:30am as possible. Also, please try to be respectful of the poker room. What does that mean? Don't show up drunk off your ass. I don't mean to be harsh, but I've worked really hard on this, and I'd rather not be embarrassed. I'm just asking for a little respect, that's all. I'm not ordering you all to be stone-cold sober on 9 hours sleep... but I think you know what I'm asking. Thanks.

Saturday June 4, 10am:
The second WPBT live event begins with about 80 entries and countless side bets. Blogger pride is on the line. Beware the hammer! The final entry fee will be $65:

$60 gets $1,000 in chips
($8 goes to the house)
$5 add-on gets extra $500
Total $65 buy-in

20 minute blinds:

Saturday June 4, 2pm:
Play begins again in the WSOP Event #2. Hopefully a few bloggers will be left, and perhaps even reach the final table! If that's the case, I'll probably race to bust out of the WPBT event so I can go railbird (as if I'll survive long otherwise). In case you're wondering this final table will be televised by ESPN. It will air August 23rd at 8pm.

Saturday June 4, 5pm:
WPBT after-party hosted by AlCantHang at LaSalsa Cantina in the Showcase Mall a block from the Aladdin Casino. There are 345,875 varieties of tequilla there, or so I've heard.
