    Vegas baby!! World Series of Poker

    The World Series of Poker began just a couple weeks ago. This thread can be a good place for folks who follow poker to talk about the goings on at the world's biggest tournament.

    But, I am also here to let all of you know that on Saturday October 16th I will be playing in the World Series myself. I am going to be in Vegas through Wednesday the 20th to play in a few events (I mean, I hope I go so deep that I only play in 1 event, but the reality is that I will probably play in 2 or 3). I'm not going to have my wife or anybody else of consequence with me from Monday to Wednesday so if there are Dukies in Vegas who want to get together for a drink or chat, I'm probably going to have some free time.

    I am not available Saturday night because I will be sitting next to the Chainsmokers when they perform at XS Nightclub at the Wynn. My brother is friends with the Chainsmokers and we are going to TEAR UP THE TOWN that night!

    I don't know what you are doing right now, but if you aren't listening to the DBR Podcast, you're doing it wrong.

    I’m hopefully headed in two weeks, very interested in your reports.

    Looks like the events are uniting around 70%-75% of 2019 entries. The paucity of foreigners on the list is striking, no doubt related to the US COVID restrictions on entry.

    This is my third WSOP, always fun.

    Edit because just noticed my typical typo.

    Looks like the daily tourneys are way down too. Fewer entrants are a blessing and a curse I guess.

    Best of luck...win back that football $$!

    DBR will be pulling for you, as well as waiting on tales of wild debauchery. (Because while what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, DBR doesn't spread secrets...policy against rumor mongering and all that. )

    I read that as the "sporks book", which I kinda like better than what you actually wrote.

    “Spork or Flame” would be a great name for a casino game.

    The XS nightclub is a very cool venue. Seeing a show there wasn't the best experience in the world, but seems like you'll have a better vantage point than I did.

    What's your game of choice? Mainly NLHE? Or do you mix in Omaha, O-8, stud or other games?

    Can’t speak for Jason, but I go there for the NLHE and a few H.O.R.S.E. Tourneys.

    You play all the games. My lifetime number of Razz and Stud sessions combined is probably less than 30. These days I play Omaha 95% of the time. Hard for me to go back to the two card game but I will if that's the only choice.

    I really only play hold'em tournaments, almost exclusively no-limit. There are aspects of betting in limit hold'em that I am not good enough at to feel comfortable against a strong field. I really enjoy Omaha, but have not played it enough to be anything but cannon fodder in a good field.

    Showing your age much? The Chainsmokers are very successful EDM producers/performers who have multiple multi-platinum albums and chart-topping singles. They are best known for doing "Something Just Like This" with Coldplay and "Closer" with Halsey. Their performances at big nightclubs are legendary and they are among the most successful acts in Vegas right now. They have a residency at the Wynn where they play every Saturday night. That is what I will be attending:

    That looks really cool - enjoy. Normally not my think but they are really good.

    As a note, if he doesn't know who The Chainsmokers are, he likely also doesn't know what EDM is. But again, GIYF.
