The World Series of Poker - 2009

So the 40th Annual World Series of Poker kicks off in style tomorrow in Las Vegas, with an unbelievable 57 bracelets to be handed out throughout the multiple events. Event 1 is the $500 buy in Casino Employees event, which plays No-Limit Hold’em.

The next couple of months is a poker player’s dream as this is the pinnacle of the poker calendar. Who amongst you will become the next Jeff Madsen, who turned his 21st birthday into multiple Bracelets? Who has it in them to become this year’s Erick Lindgren, last year’s Player of the year? Can someone else become the next Chris Moneymaker, and turn a $40 buy in into the greatest prize that poker has to offer? Will Phil Hellmuth end the series still having the most bracelets of all time? Will Jamie Gold still be the WSOP’s all time money leader?

So many questions will be played out over the next few months, and you can count on Pablosplace to deliver you with the updated results of all 57 events. I am after all addicted to this. I still carry with me the dream that one day, I’ll be able to join the crowd of fellow players at the event, but for now, it remains a dream.

I have some people that I’ve been chatting with recently that I’ll be pulling for, as well as some pro’s that I think would make some really interesting stories. In the end, I’ll make it as entertaining to read on my site as I possibly can, and I hope that you all enjoy my feedback.

A note, I will be missing some events between June 20th through June 28th, as I have this little thing going on in life (getting married and going on a honeymoon). But other than that, I’ll be blogging pretty religiously, and tweeting as well (you can follow me on twitter as @Pablosplace). Good luck to all of my friends that will be participating!
