Since our hero seems to be fully engrossed in blackjack at the moment and was foolish enough to give me (lightning36) access to his blog, I thought I would actually write a post that talks about ... poker! Not only poker, but the biggest event of the year: the 2015 WSOP.
Not having the luxury of a massive sockroll like Tony, I might be looking at the upcoming WSOP events that were made for bottom feeders like me.
Event #5: THE COLOSSUS
Holy crapola -- a WSOP event with a buy in of only $565? Yes, empty your jar of pennies and get in! THE COLOSSUS has four flights on May 29 and 30. $5,000,000 guaranteed prize pool? Yowsa!
Event #66: LUCKY SEVENS
This three-day event has two flights on July 3. If the Main Event $10,000 entry (begins July 5) is beyond your means, perhaps this $777 entry fee event near the end of the WSOP is for you.
Events #6, 18, 22, 26, 30, 40, 43, 53, 57, 61, 64
These are all $1,000 events. They include Hyper Hold'em. Turbo No Limit Hold'em, Pot Limit Omaha, Seniors and Super Seniors, Ladies and the Little One for One Drop. In other words, there is a little something for everyone.
Of course, the Rio will also offer tons of satellites every day throughout the WSOP. Cash games galore also provide opportunities to challenge wannabes from around the world.

Sorry for this boring poker interlude. I now return you to Mr. Bigcharles for the next chapter of his always riveting tale of poker and blackjack debauchery. Unless, of course, he has already been euthanized.
