WSOP is coming to Chicago in October 2017

This weekend World Series of Poker (WSOP) is having a circuit stop in Hammond, Indiana.  Which is the East Chicago area.  The are having a full schedule of events, kicking off with a $350 buy in, $500,000 guaranteed NL Hold’em on October 12th, and culminating with the $1,675 Main Event which will have a cool 1 million dollar guarantee.

I am going to play the $350 event on Saturday.  They have 3 starting days, and I will drive up to Chicago on Friday, get a good nights sleep, and play the even on Saturday morning.  I will let you know how it turns out.

Greatest Poker Books

This whole poker book idea got me all worked up.  I looked through my library and found a few must have poker books for the beginning.  But since I no longer consider myself the beginner, but more of an intermediate (at least !) level, I thought it would be helpful to find some books that explore other aspects of poker player’s life.  And because I still believe that a good old fashioned book, that you can hold in your hand and flip through and shit, is much better then any of those digital versions, I have put up some links.  Just click on the cover image if you want to buy one.  I will also have a running (and hopefully updated) list running on my Poker Page.  Check it out.

WSOP Circuit stop in Louisville

The WSOP is in Horseshoe Southern Indiana, in the Louisville area.  I am too busy to play any of the early events, and my bankroll is not big enough to play the $1675 Main Event.  So, I am skipping the whole thing.  Although I may go play the $365 NL Hold’em on Sunday October 8th, 2017.  This will be the last event other then the seniors only.

On my Christmas List this year: Savage MSR15 Recon Mid-Length

Obviously I am very excited about Taurus’ new T4SA .223 carbine being introduced to the public, so I looked over the AR selection at my local gun shop.  From the huge variety of sizes, prices and calibers, I was able to fish out a few very awesome pieces of death-dealing machinery.  This particular piece caught my eye with simplicity and affordability, built on a solid manufacturing reputation.  So, feast your eyes on the Savage MSR15 Recon .223/5.56 Mid-Length, 16″ barrel with BLACKHAWK! KNOXX AR Pistol Grip and BLACKHAWK! AXIOM adjustable carbine stock.  This particular model features flip up BLACKHAWK! sights in addition to the Picatinny Rail.
