I thought I would start a thread so maybe we can all share our WSOP plans and see if I/we cant connect with a few RCP'ers ...

I am going to be arriving mid-day on Thursday May 28th. The day before the Colossus. I am going to be staying thru Wednesday June 10th. I will than be back on Wednesday July 1st and hopefully staying thru the end of the series.

tentative schedule...

Friday May 29th = Colossus
Saturday May 30th = Colossus

Wednesday June 3rd = Six Handed NL

Friday June 5th = Milly maker
Saturday June 6th = Milly maker

Thursday July 2nd = WSOP.com Online Event

Saturday July 4th = Main Event Satellite day

Sunday July 5th = Main Event ??

I am also going to attend the UFC 189 and Fan Expo on the weekend of July 10th and 11th. If anyone wants to meet up or share your schedule just post here and hopefully we can get the ball rolling.

Good luck everyone and hopefully we can get a bracelet or two for RCP.

    Yeah, the mods should combine the various wsop threads into one.

    I'm not going unless there is a favorable housing situation that comes up.

    I get in around May 25th and stay until July 1st (give or take a few days on either side).

    Playing Colossus and the 50/50 for sure, and will be playing a lot of $2/$5 cash as well. Not sure how big of an MTT schedule I'm going to play as there will be a lot of business to handle in a very short amount of time.

    We're going to be hosting an event for Red Chippers around Colossus...and we'll make sure to give details when we have them squared away =)

    I'll be there for the Collosus and I'm not leaving until they throw me out - which will likely be around July 10th :-) I'm looking forward to seeing bunches of Red Chippers there!

    P.S. My birthday is July 1st & I love playing poker on my special day.

    I usually play for 5-6 days at the start of the series...so probably the $1500 OH8 or Colossus for me (hope it is not a zoo); might play Venetian Deep Stacks.

    I fully expect it to be a zoo...even moreso than normal lol

    Changed my mind ...think I will play event 11 ($1500 limit hold'em) on June 2, then random deepstacks and cash games that week.

    Anyone playing the Monster Stack on June 12/13th? (I think those are the date of the opening flights)

    Third time's a charm...my son's high school graduation plans conflicted with my previous plans.

    Just booked hotel and flight today; arriving Vegas June 18, leaving the 25th. Probably will play WSOP Senior event and Venetian DeepStacks.

    GL to everyone playing in the WSOP.

    I'm going to be making my first trip to Vegas and going to play the Colossus.

    If I register for flight D on May 30th will I start at Level 1?

    Thanks
  • Skors3Skors3 Red Chipper Posts: 669 ✭✭✭
    Yes. Each flight starts from the beginning. Where it ends I'm not sure as different casinos have different rules. I believe these tournaments go through a certain level.

    Thanks

    I final tabled the 100K today on Bovada but came in 9th =(

    Was chip leader with 12 left but the final table bubble was brutal , it took almost an hour to pop.

    As far as the WSOP plans :

    Who wants to pick up chicks with me in Vegas ? I'm gonna pre reg for the Colossus for the last flight Saturday Night the 30th at 6:30PM, it will give me time to settle in when I arrive on the 27th + the 30th is my Birthday =)

    I get there at 4:30PM Wed. the 27th and I heard TAO nightclub is the best club to go to Wednesday night - If I bust on day one its just gonna be booze and chicks til I leave on the 3rd lol

    Good Luck Everyone at the WSOP, I predict a Red Chipper will win a bracelet this year , you heard it here first!

    Hey Ron K,

    Congrats on the FT. I know two players who were on that FT with you so I was sweating it. My boy Brent Hanks took 3rd and Carlos Welch shipped it.
    Good job man!
  • ChipXtractorChipXtractor Red Chipper Posts: 1,192 ✭✭✭✭
    I knew Carlos back when he was teaching brats back in Georgia. He is going to do big things this summer at the WSOP. Guy has worked his butt off.

    As far as picking up chicks ... I am married. As a matter of fact my wife is a current NYS Trooper and a former USMC DI. No f'n way I am gonna try and step out on her.

    However, I am a bit of a chick magnet, so you single guys can hang around me and get the satellite women if ya like.

    :/

    Hey Christian , Whats up?

    I figured there was a couple of pros there at the final table bubble, guys on my left were tough, one guy was stacked and the other fought back a lot and it caused me to tighten up too much and I just abandoned stealing altogether . I was 4th out of 10 remaining and thought the best plan was to play it safe , wait for the bubble to pop and get to the final table with an average chip stack.

    But since the FT bubble took forever I was severely short on chips .

    I'm playing some more MTTS and since the WSOP is around the corner its nice that you guys have included these in your forums and videos.

    Thanks

    Ill be there on May 27 and meeting up with Carlos. We hung out last year and he did good then. Will be playing mostly the smaller MTTs and SNG sats. Not playing the Colossus as the variance is going to be high. Maybe the 1500 PLO if I can win some stuff before that.
  • Ron KRon K Red Chipper Posts: 119
    Cool man , what smaller MTTs they got goin the 27th 28th 29th?

    I'd like to play a couple =)

    Deal me a solid cooler and you will be demoted from my couch to a very comfortable cot outside for the rest of the Series... :)
