PokerListings.com is following NHL goalie Roberto Luongo at the 2013 World Series of Poker Main Event for a brand new short documentary video. Check out this teaser for a taste of what to expect from the finished product!
Roberto Luongo: I think my experience from a year ago at the Main Event was unforgettable. You know, every day that went by that I was still in it, I was getting more and more excited. I think I learned a lot from last year, and I changed my game a little bit. Unfortunately, I busted out, but I was able to cash, and hopefully this year I'll make it a bit further.
Male: Roberto Luongo. He's a goalie in the NHL, and he was on Canada's Olympic Gold Medal-winning hockey team. He's coming off a tough season with the Vancouver Canucks, but right now, he's down here at Las Vegas to play in the World Series of Poker Main Event. Last year he went deep, and this year he wants to go even deeper.
Roberto Luongo: Last year was my first time, and I was excited, realizing one of my goals. I was really nervous the first few hours, but today coming in, I wasn't that nervous. I think I was more relaxed, which is good. I think at the first level you just wanna feel your way through, try to figure out what the table's like and the players are like, and then pick up some hands. There's no urgency, obviously, in the first few levels to make any plays. My strategy for the rest of the day is to just play tight. The way I play the first level, there's no real urgency in it, because the antes are not in yet. So, sit tight. Wait for good spots, and obviously, try not to put too many chips in, unless you have the best hand.
Male: This year, we're following Luongo's Main Event every step of the way, so check back on PokerListings.com to find out how deep he goes.
