I will be out there for 6 days, then will be going back to Florida for 9 days, before leaving again to go to Vegas for the WSOP.
While in Sacramento, I am planning on playing the FTOPS events that start at 14:00 EST, on Tuesday through Friday (while my g/f is working). So I'll probably just play those 4 events because I definitely won't want to be playing that much.
I finally started planning out what events I'm going to be looking to play for the WSOP. I started by just crossing out what events I defintitely won't play (unless I win the 40k lol). My schedule looks as follows:
May 28th 12:00 $40,000 No-Limit Holdem
May 30th 12:00 $1,000 No-Limit Holdem
June 1st 12:00 $1,500 Pot-Limit Omaha
June 2nd 12:00 $1,500 No-Limit Holdem
June 3rd 12:00 $1,500 No-Limit Holdem (6-max)
June 4th 12:00 $2,000 No-Limit Holdem
June 5th 12:00 $2,500 No-Limit Holdem
June 6th 12:00 $5,000 No-Limit Holdem
June 8th 12:00 $2,500 No-Limit Holdem (6-max)
June 9th 12:00 $1,500 Pot-Limit Holdem
June 10th 12:00 $1,500 No-Limit Holdem (Shootout)
June 11th 12:00 $1,500 No-Limit Holdem
June 12th 5:00 $5,000 Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-Low
June 13th 12:00 $1,500 No-Limit Holdem
June 14th 12:00 $2,500 Pot-Limit Omaha
June 15th 12:00 $2,000 No-Limit Holdem
June 16th 12:00 $1,500 No-Limit Holdem
June 17th 12:00 $5,000 Pot-Limit Omaha
June 18th 12:00 $2,000 No-Limit Holdem
June 19th 12:00 $2,000 Limit Holdem
June 20th 5:00 $10,000 Pot-Limit Omaha
June 21st 12:00 $5,000 No-Limit Holdem (Shootout)
June 23rd 12:00 $10,000 Pot-Limit Holdem
June 24th 12:00 $2,500 Mixed Holdem
June 25th 12:00 $1,500 Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-Low
June 26th 5:00 $1,500 Limit Holdem (Shootout)
June 27th 12:00 $1,500 No-Limit Holdem
June 28th 12:00 $3,000 No-Limit Holdem (Triple Chance)
June 29th 12:00 $1,500 No-Limit Holdem
June 30th 12:00 $5,000 No-Limit Holdem (6-max)
July 3rd 12:00 $10,000 No-Limit Holdem Main Event
There are 7 days in which I want to play the 5:00 tournament, but will only play if I bust the 12:00 tournament before late registration is over. Those events are:
June 3rd 5:00 $2,500 Pot-Limit Holdem/Omaha
June 6th 5:00 $1,500 Seven Card Stud
June 9th 5:00 $3,000 HORSE
June 11th 5:00 $2,500 Omaha/Seven Card Stud Hi-Low
June 14th 5:00 $1,500 HORSE
June 21st 5:00 $2,500 Mixed Event
June 28th 5:00 $1,500 Seven Card Stud Hi-Low
The maximum events I will play is 38 events. Although this is pretty much impossible. I think realistically I will play around 25-27 events.
Anytime I make a day 2 of an event, I will then have to miss the next day's event. Using this schedule, the maximum days off I would have during the month of June would be 2 days. I may end up skipping some $1,500 events if I feel like I need to.
I am getting more and more amped each day that we get closer to the series. I am really looking forward to getting back on the grind and playing live poker every day.
Hopefully, I will ship an FTOPS event while out in Cali, and then have something to blog about when I get back to South Fla.
