Barring a financial catostrophe I would play it for sure. We are talking the WSOP.. As I said in my blog I will never win a major marathon or triathlon. Cant compete in the Super Bowl or Stanley Cup. But on any given day I can tow the line in a poker tourney against the best players in the world and have a chance to win or even cash because it has been done before.
Because of the UIGA (Unlawful Internet Gambling Act) Harrahs will no longer allow third party registrations from the poker rooms. Pokerstars
FTP and Bodog
etc will have to credit the winners accounts with the cash and they will have to buy there way in directly. A good friend of mine has qualified two times thru stars (2005/2006). I posed the question to him (knowing what he would do before I asked) and in a heartbeat he would buy his way in.
2007 WSOP schedule still to be announced but the dates are June 1st thru Mid July.. Letters went out from Harrahs to 2006 participants.
