It has been over 2 very long years - but we are back! Do you think you can outlast our CardsChat Professionals in a wsop event? Well this is chance to give it a shot!

CardsChat will be having it's 9th WSOP team event in October. Members will have the opportunity to outlast bracelet winner Ryan Laplante (hopefully) and CardsChat pro Ashley Sleeth (and hopefully Dara O'Kearney!) in the WSOP Colossus event.

The Colossus tournament starts on Fri, Oct 29th and the final table will play out on Mon, Nov 1st. The buy-in is $400 and there are 2 starting flights. It is a re-entry event that will run for 4 days. All events begin at 10am.

Flight 55A - 10am Friday, Oct 29th
Flight 55B - 10am Saturday, Oct 30th

The event will be a last longer challenge and the team will consist of 8-16 members. We are taking names now for those who are interested and CardsChat members are welcome to join in! All CardsChat members with 30+ posts will have first priority. If you don't have 30 posts you can ask our 3 CC pros a question in each of these threads and still be considered for the team:

Ashley Sleeth (Vegas MTT pro)- Ask Me Anything About Playing Live Poker

Matt Vaughan (Poker Vlogger) - Ask Me Anything - Including Hand Analysis
(Matt will even analyze hands for you!)

Dara O'Kearney (Satellite Specialist) - Ask Me Anything about satellites/knockouts

As we add members they will need to post in this thread to introduce themselves and give us a little bit of background on their poker experience and history. Link your Twitter account please.

CardsChat will pay $200 of each team member's $400 entry into the event. (You can re-enter once per flight but we only pay the $200 for your 1st entry). You are responsible for your own transportation and expenses to get to the event.

The team member who lasts the longest will get $500!

-In the unlikely event that no one makes Day 2, we will determine the winner of the last longer by highest cash earned in the tournament. You can start in either flight - however it is preferable that you start in Flight A on Friday so we can all be there on the same day. You must meet ALL requirements before getting paid. Please be considerate of the fact that I am also playing and cannot chase you down to fulfill the requirements - including posting in this thread, so you could lose your spot if you don't take care of them in a timely manner. :)

Team members will be required to:
  1. Post their introduction to the team in this thread with full name and flight expected to play along with a link to their Twitter account.
  2. Participate in this rail thread. (or post their tournament updates in Twitter).
  3. Wear a CardsChat hoodie, sweatshirt or t-shirt and use a CardsChat card protector throughout the entire event. (They will be provided by CardsChat unless you have already been given one in a previous event. (They must have the logo on the back). Baseball caps and t-shirts will be provided if they are going to be worn. Hoodies may be placed on the back of your chair - however if you are being televised or streamed either the hoodie, a CC tshirt or a CC cap must be visible.
  4. Follow us in Twitter and tweet a picture of yourself wearing your CC gear and mention/tag @CardsChat.
  5. Tweet a picture of your chip stack or your cards with your card protector and mention/tag @CardsChat.
All of the above must be done before you receive your $200 - plus you need to already be registered for the event. You will not be eligible for the last longer prize if you do not wear CC gear and use your card protector during the entire event.

Team Members so far: (bolded have already made intro posts here and their spot is secured).You can find details on the tournament here:

I'll be in again. Shouldn't that be corrected to 55B for the Saturday flight in the intro, Debi? I plan to enter 55A through Bravo once a couple of possibilities are clarified (contract tracing DQs, cancelations, etc.). I'll do my full introduction in this thread once I'm entered. Good luck all!!! (Play this challenge if you can, people; I had a blast two (or was it 3?) years ago.)

I'm mainly coming down for the Mini-main on the 3rd, but might play a couple of events at the Venetian's Deepstack Championship. I'd be interested in a meet up with anyone from here that will be in town for the 1st to 6th.

So far away in every aspects to even thinking about a chance for me to be with you. But it does not matter, if I can feel myself a part of a family, I'm happy for every family members successes. Wishing you all joy, great poker moments and many deep friend-relationship moments. Sending hug, Jani.
Oh, and waiting for some pictures with some names to recognise my CC friends as they are in person. :)

Good luck to you all, team Cardschat and Debi!!! :)
I wished to be there as well. As soon as this travel restrictions will be over and
this CC event will happen again, I will also travel there.
Better sooner than later. No time too loose, life is too short... :D

Debi, I had such a great time in 2019, I would love to go again, but, alas, my wife and I are just joining real life...went to an outdoor patio last week for the first time in a restaurant since Jan 2020...don't know if I am ready to get on a plane yet...the Covid numbers are climbing in my area. Looking at the 2019 photo, I have lost over 20 lbs, but my hair is about as long now as yours was in that photo. At this point, I shall have to say that I pass this year, but I'm in for 2022.

For all of you who have not yet had the experience of playing in a WSOP event, I highly recommend you join the Cardschat team...great camaraderie and incredible excitement playing in the event.

Good luck to all of you who are going.
