Whether you recognize poker as a “sport” or not, the World Series Of Poker is one of great annual traditions of Las Vegas and, in my opinion, of all of sport. Poker is a universal game, one that relies on the stamina of a player’s mind while navigating through almost 50 days’ worth of poker tournaments. This year’s WSOP features 57 events, starting from tomorrow’s $50,000 Poker Player’s Championship event to the Main Event‘s induction of the November Nine.
I’m especially excited because I’ll be covering the Main Event live and in person throughout the month of July. I’ll be migrating from my accommodations at the Hard Rock Hotel to the tournament floor at the Rio and delivering daily updates with awesome stories and ridiculous anecdotes that will make you wonder why you weren’t following poker from the onset.
I get it, some of you are sick of watching it on TV. But this isn’t TV. This is the Land of the Badass and gaming goodness will show its papers at the gate. This coverage will kick you in the balls and run off with your wallet. So be ready. It’s going to be badass.
