Nearly that time again - WSOP 2012

In the beginning of this prolific tournament in 1970 there were only 6 players, today this tournament attracts more than 75000 entrants from across the globe generating prize money more than $1 900 000. Its hard to believe that its almost time again, 2012 marks the 43rd annual World Series of Poker.

The tournament will be held in the Rio All-suit hotel and casino in Las Vegas!

This year there will be 62 events, consisting of different buy-ins ranging from $500 to $1mil, the seats are expected to be filled with professionals and amateurs a like. The first event starts on the 27th of May - three days before my birthday (boy, wouldn't that be a great birthday present). the final event of the series begins on the 9th of July.
A couple notable tournaments:

- Event 12    Heads Up NLHE     $10 000
- Event 17   Pot Limit HE            $10 000
- Event 32   H.O.R.S.E               $10 000
- Event 39   Pot Limit Omaha      $10 000
- Event 45   The Poker Players Championship  $50 000
- Event 55   The Big One for One NLHE        $1 000 000
- Event 57   NLHE (6 handed)         $10 000
- Event 61   NLHE championship (Main Event)  $10 000

Hope to see new faces, winners and names holding bracelets. I have a great feeling about Phil Ivey this year though!
