Here is your chance to compete with our pros in a wsop event in Las Vegas!

CardsChat will be having it's 10th WSOP team event in June. Members will have the opportunity to outlast bracelet winner Ryan Laplante, poker pro Chris Fox Wallace and CardsChat Ambassadors Ashley Sleeth, Matt Vaugan and Dara O'Kearney in the WSOP Colossus event. (All are not confirmed but most will likely play). You can get tips from them here:

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

Chris 'Fox' Wallace (Poker Pro, Coach and Author) - Ask Me Anything!


The Colossus tournament starts on Fri, June 24th and the final table will play out on Mon, June 27th. 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 51A - 10am Friday, June 24th
Flight 51B - 10am Saturday, June 25th

You can find the details on the event here:

WSOP 2022 Tournament Schedule

The event will be a last longer challenge and the team will consist of 12-25 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. We may accept a few others depending on the size of the team.

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.

Been waiting for this seems forever.
Put my name in for it.
I am natsgrampy here at Cardschat,
George Mulry in real life, some call me
"G" - Unit, some call me Grandmasta -G.
Most call me George or Grampy.
This will be my 3rd time playing for Team CC. I am liking the structure of the Colossus and look forward to joining everyone.
After being cooped up for so long, I will be having some of my family joining me for vacation. They will mostly keep themselves busy, but, I will be going to the Grand Canyon for a day or two with them. I think the are more excited than I am.
I will try to play flight A ,but, may be in Laughlin in the AM, and not sure what time I'll be back to Vegas.
I still have plenty of Cardschat gear, but, may need a new hat unless I can locate mine.
Thanks for considering me, hope to see all you CCers there.

I'm definitely in for our Colossus Challenge! Probably Flight A, will have to definitively figure out my itineraries this weekend. Will post my intro etc. next week after I pay my WSOP entry via Bravo -- love that easy advance registration! Any CCer thinking of the "Best Ball" team event (OK, I have no memory for names etc.) that same weekend and need a partner? Go CC, we need bracelets in the Family to show off!

Will be there that week and playing but not in the Colossus this year. I will miss playing with you all after such a great opportunity in 2019. To everyone who plays this year I wish you the best of luck. I hope one of our group win the bracelet. Hop-fully I will win one earlier in the week. Hey I have to dream.

Wooohooo! I'm so excited to be considered! I had a fab time playing on the CardsChat team what seems like an eternity ago. More than ready for this year. Chomping at the bit! LOL! It would be an honor and privilege to play on the team again. Cardschat is such an amazing and supportive place for everyone who is a fan of this great game. AmandaA here and @amandaanne on twitter. I play mostly on ACR where I'm Redrydinhood. I will likely play Flight A. I could use a new T-shirt, (I have everything else). GL to everyone playing in the WSOP this year!

I'm Joe Mussat and JoeShowdown on Twitter. I have been on team cardschat many times and chopped the last longer last fall with Christina Read.

I was in Vegas in March for the Ballys wsop circuit event and cashed in 5 out of 7 tournaments as well as 1 cash at orleans and a personal best of almost $10k for a 4th place at the Venetian. I hope to top that this June! Good luck #teamcardschat

I will play flight A and B if necessary

Can’t wait!

Greetings :)
Kristin here! It’s been a minute since I’ve been this excited. WSOP is just a week away. One of my favorite parts of the series is Team CardsChat’s colossus event. There’s nothing better than getting to meet back up with people and promote something you love, so count me in!
I’ve played poker for close to 10 years now, but have taken the last few years off due to the pandemic and being a single mom. Life happens, right?


Been a part of Team CardChats Colossus event a few times and have enjoyed it so much. I will play flight A and B as well, if needed. Wouldn’t mind a new hoodie :)

Follow along on Twitter: @Queenofsets.

See you all there ❤️.

I appreciate this opportunity and I am looking forward to playing on the CardsChat team for the Colossus this year! My name is Kathleen Twomey (kltwomey/@pokergrrrl) and I plan to play in Flight A. I've been playing poker since I was a kid but more seriously for the past 8 years. I am recently semi-retired from work so I hope to play more poker, more tennis, and do more travelling in the years to come!
