The poker stage doesn t get any
bigger. The 45th edition of the
World Series of Poker has a 65-
event schedule that stretches until
the middle of July, with buy-ins
ranging from $1,000 all the way
up to $1 million.
And if you choose to enter any
of these tournaments at the Las
Vegas Rio, it s the sort of experience
that you will never forget, especially
if you manage to make it to a payday.
Here are some things to consider,
if this is your first WSOP:
Register early: If your tournament
is on a Sunday, and you are already
in Las Vegas on Thursday, go ahead
and post your buy-in as soon as
possible at the cage to guarantee
your seat. While it is uncommon
for tournament officials to cap
entries, it does happen on occasion,
and the players who get shut out
are the ones who attempt to get in
at the last minute. It s hard to feel
sorry for them.
Survey the land: The Rio is huge.
The main playing area is the size of
an aircraft hangar, and it s easy to
get lost in the sea of tables. Take a
few laps around the poker room and
figure out the table-numbering sys-
tem. Once you ve found your table,
find the necessities, such as the
nearest restroom or food vendor.
Calm yourself: Even the most
grizzled poker veterans will admit
to some nerves once a tournament
starts. This is normal, and the guts
churn the most when you decide to
play that first hand. The chance that
you could lose half your stack and
pretty much blow $1,500 under cer-
tain circumstances is a real possi-
bility, but that s poker. If you com-
mitted to playing the WSOP, it
means that you are confident in
your skill set. Simply play your best
poker, eliminate all fear and hope
for the best, because ...
The opposition: You enter the
WSOP with the thought that every-
body in the room is a good poker
player. But really, this is hardly the
case. Yes, there are plenty of bracelet
winners, world champions and
famous faces from TV at some of
the tables, but there are even more
players who are just like you (or
much worse), if your chosen event
is a lower-buy-in, no-limit Texas
Hold em offering.
Forget first tournaments: I was
once at a table with a player who
was playing poker for the very first
time, at the WSOP. Her husband
entered her so she would "have
something to do while he played."
Break time: When a tournament
goes on break, everybody makes a
mad dash to the bathrooms, and
the lines can get long. You then have
two choices: You can wait your turn,
or start hoofing it to the next bath-
room, and the next, until you find
one without a line. Or, you can do
the smart thing and take care of all
that before the official break starts.
Unless you are facing a dire chip
shortage or have made it deep into
the money and structure, it s not a
big deal to take five or six hands off.
Autographs: Just say "no." Maybe
I m a fun-killer, but there is some-
thing wrong about treating anybody
who plays poker like a celebrity. I
would make an exception for Doyle
Brunson, but he plays a very limited
WSOP schedule and last year threat-
ened to not play at all due to the
time demands. If you happen to have
a well-known player at your table,
simply relish the experience and do
your best to send him or her packing.
