I’m in Tucson Arizona, that’s southeast of Phoenix and just about 60 miles north of the US/Mexico Border. I’m here to continue working on my quest for great health and a good life. I may have to quickly jet in and play the World Team Poker event at the Golden Nugget in Las Vegas on Tuesday, the 18th, before flying in to play the 50K event at the WSOP on the 28th.
The World Team Poker Event is a one day contest with 40 of the world’s top poker pros and five man teams that represent eight different countries. The countries have captains and co-captains:
Phil Hellmuth Jr, USA Johnny Chan and David Chiu, China – co-captains Men “The Master” Nguyen, Vietnam Eli Elezra, Israel Ben Roberts, England Jeff Lisandro and Tony Gouga (The G), Australia – co-captains Juliana Maesano, Brazil
George Kapalas, Greece
The team buy-in is $50K and we will be playing LH, PLO, and NLH. It’s going to be very entertaining and the event will be televised.
I’m not sure how many events I will play at the WSOP but I will put my biggest effort into the starting event, the $50K, early on.
As to my latest poker playing adventures and fun, I can’t talk about the Doubles Championship I just completed in Las Vegas but you’ll soon see it on TV. Get ready for a show!
