  1. do you know if the lhe events get big turnouts?

  2. Nothing compared to the NL tournaments of course but I'd guess they'll be in the 200-400 player range for most.

  3. I wish I could join one of the tournies with you and that'd be fun! :) Good luck!

  4. time to blow up(get famous). do you think you'll play any biggish cash games if you get bounced early in an event?

  5. Haha, I wish. I'd have to win at least two of them to have any shot at fame. The reality is that the odds are strongly against me winning one but all I can do is keep trying. I'll be one of the favorites in all the limit events which I'm guessing would still make me at least a 50-1 shot.

    I don't think I'll be playing any of the high limit cash games. Maybe if I finish high in one of the touranments and have some extra cash I'll play the Bellagio 1-2 or 2-4 game. Probably not though, I still need to play online through all this too.

  6. Tpirahna,

    In the wsop lhe events do generally play more tight or are you loose aggressive? Does it get folded to you around the button a lot? If so, how much do you think you are stealing?

  7. Tony,
    Just make sure to shave your head for the TV Tables, and make sure they get your good side!


  8. Haha, comforting to know I even have a good side lol.

  9. Young Jock-

    From my experience last year, I'd say they play fairly similar to online full ring games except that players were tighter when we near the bubble. Also there was a limit tourney where we were down to 2 tables and there were several players clearly trying to hang on and make the final table.

    It was very rare for it to be folded around to the button or blinds. My strategy won't be much different from online, I might be slightly looser overall but I'm pretty loose compared to most anyway.
