"In a field of 6,000 entrants, the best player in the world might generously be a 1,000-1 dog to win. After 40 years against those odds, that player would have a mere 4 percent chance of having won the tournament once, and it would take 700 years before the best player would have a 50 percent chance to have won."
Sadly, no WSOP updates. I'm as much in the dark as you.
I haven't played any poker since winning the seat, but I did install Wilson HoldEm about 10 minutes ago. So there's that. I fully expect to be back in the saddle check-raising Gentle Ben and Honest Hanna here in a few.
But I'm not really even thinking about it yet. It's just a mental bandwidth issue right now. I'm so damn crazy busy in real-life and web work, and part of me says besides, my seat will get screwed up so I'm prolly not gonna be playing anyway, so why even ponder it?
It's too easy to over think it. If my seat works out, that's fantastic, and I can't wait to play in the Main Event. I've been wanting to do this my entire life.
Doing well and lasting through Day One would just be icing on the cake. I'm just going to go play my ABC game and let the chips fall where they may. If I get outplayed, that's fine. Bad beat? Fine, too.
Donking off my stack? Expected.
I'm still telling myself it's all about the experience. Just playing in this tourney is going to be a buzz, however short-lived. So I don't need to go crazy with studying and all that. I'm got quite a bit of cumulative poker experience and knowledge crammed into my legume sized brain already.
