Well it has begun and even though it won't be seen on TV for awhile the reports are starting to come in and it looks to be an exciting year. I am going down (as a spectator and to play some side tourneys and games) for the main event in July and have had a couple of friends go down for qualifying events last week. Anyone here planning on making the trip to Vegas to either watch or participate in this year's events?

I was planning to go this week, which includes Pot Limit, No Limit and Limit Hold Em and Omaha, but due to last minute issues couldn't head over. So far it's been wild, 0ver 2200 people played in the first tournament, entries for all NL have been over 1000 players, it's almost like playing Bingo! But true...I wish I was there playing with all that energy and craziness. Back to the home games for me for a while.

I'm trying to scrape together a bankroll to play in a single-table satellite being held here for a seat in the Main Event. Even though I know it's a crap shoot this year with 6,600 entries, it would still be awesome to go out there for it, just knowing if you can get a good run of cards you might have a chance at the biggest win in tourney history. Hell, this year's will be probably the biggest single event prize for anything other than a boxing match ever.

Without giving away any spoilers, it looks like a good mix of old vets and newbies winning the bracelets thus far. Man, if I only had about 20 grand to burn.....I'd be all over the Omaha Hi-Lo games like stink on a hog.
