The WSOP and Venetian Deep Stack Begins…
This is my first trip to Vegas this year. I am excited to be playing many WSOP events, starting with the $1,000 event, which begins for me on Saturday, as there are two day ones. I am expecting a huge field on this holiday weekend.
Today I will be taking it easy by playing a short cash session at the Venetian Poker room. This is probably my favorite poker room in Las Vegas. The seats are amazingly comfortable in this beautiful room. The room is well run and managed, so it is a pleasure to play there. The room is always full of good and bad players–always nice to have a fish or two for my dining pleasure. Additionally, you can get any beverage your heart desires from Fiji water to freshly made carrot juice, as well as BOTH Coke and Pepsi products.
I selected the Venetian for my cash play today because today is Event #1 of the Venetian Deep Stack Extravaganza III. I want to be there as players get knocked out and might be tilting. This event is an affordable $340, which had approximately 700 players last year. With 12,000 chips and 40 minutes levels, this tournament offers great value. The Venetian Deep Stack Extravaganza III continues through July 15, with a variety of buy ins and tournament types.
