I just found out that a conference i normally attend is being held in Vegas this year in mid-July. I could conceivably get there for the $1500 double stack event that starts July 11. It is well out of my price range but I may just have to take a shot. Free airfare. Free hotel. Food paid for. I may never get this shot again.

They haven't posted the full schedule yet, so maybe there will be another, less costly event, that I could get into that starts on July 11 or 12. Unfortunately, it's the last week, so the Main Event starts then and there is another $10K event and a high-roller event, too.

And a stake is an idea, too. Although not sure who would invest in me.

Sounds like a great chance for you,,,and you have over 6 months to come up with the funds.I'm sure you could get 50% or more of a $1500 buy-in from CC'ers by then(would't hurt to try),,,i know i would take a piece,,,,i'll keep an eye out for your stake! ;) Go for it Todd! :rock:

There will be plenty of satellites going to upcoming events. You may want to check all the sheets when you get there. Daily Deepstacks as well! Enjoy the atmosphere if nothing else.

I know all the casinos are running daily tournaments, but I'd love to play in an official wsop World Series event just to say I've done it. Am definitely going to think this one over. As soon as I get the okay from my boss to attend, and as soon as the conference hotels open up for reservations, I will see what can be done and keep everyone posted

You've got to do it brother! Even if you don't ITM make the best of it! Make memories! Tell dumb jokes to pros, get pictures. Do whatever you can to make the best time for yourself possible. You may never get the chance again!

If you honestly think you have a shot at some serious glory (and you're financially stable enough to enter) I think it'd be amazing to hear the stories you bring back from it

If you play pretty tight, these smaller tourns are pretty easy to get into the money.

Perhaps this is a sign and it is worth trying despite everything, I would try if I were you.
