Wannabe bracelet winners looking to emulate Wolpert's success can get some practice playing the World Series of Poker Heads Up Challenge video game.
Four of these machines are set up in the Rio Convention Center, and the game allows you to go head to head with a human opponent or against the computer. Win enough times and your name is immortalized in the high scores list.
After noticing that these machines are almost always occupied, even though there are no payouts or gambling involved, I decided to give it a try.
It's probably more fun against a human opponent, but aggressive raises seemed to work against the computer.
I chipped away at the computer's chip lead for a time and had the lead, but ended up losing when the game's artificial intelligence seemed to do a 180 and started snuffing out my bluffs.
The game is a fun diversion for a few minutes, but it probably won't prepare you to go heads up against Johnny Chan or anything like that. And with the greatest poker tournament in the world going on all around you, it's hard to concentrate on playing for nothing.
