You can call it a colossal undertaking if you want, but Team CardsChat is up for the challenge. That’s right, Team CardsChat will be anteing up in the big WSOP event with the small buy-in — the Colossus — in an effort to take one down for the community.
Alongside our Ambassadors, Ryan Laplante and Ashley Sleeth, 11 long-serving forum members, writers, and CardsChat administrators will be anteing up in the $400 event. The 13 representatives will either be playing Day 1A (October 29) or Day 1B (October 30). CardsChat is covering 50% of everyone’s buy-in, and the team member who lasts the longest will win $500.
Team CardsChat on tour
The aim of the game is to win the Colossus, obviously. However, the last longer bet is designed to add some extra excitement to this year’s event.
As you’d expect, Team CardsChat members will be focused on building a big enough stack to win the Colossus. However, they’re also duty-bound to provide some updates and insights for those who aren’t playing. Being the fun and friendly bunch, we are, we won’t be shy about making our presence known at the Colossus.
So, if you’re playing at the Rio, or just following the action online, you can expect to see the following things over the next few days:
- Team CardsChat members taking part in this event will post their updates in our WSOP forum thread and/or Twitter
- Team members will wear a CardsChat hoodie, sweatshirt, or t-shirt, and use a CardsChat card protector throughout the event so that the poker world knows we’re taking over the Colossus
- Team members will tweet pictures of themselves wearing CardsChat gear, as well as images of their chip stacks
Doing it for the community
Even though there will only be 13 members of the CardsChat team playing this week, everyone in our community is part of the event. With that being the case, you should check in with us regularly throughout the event to keep up with all the action. Now you know the basics, let’s take a look at who will be repping CardsChat this year and aiming to win a WSOP bracelet for the community.
