Some updates were added below on Sunday, July 10th.
Added some more photos on Sunday, July 10th afternoon.
One of The Boblagio’s regular players, Andre’, is headed to the WSOP Main Event a week from today. He was the winner in another home league where the prize was an entry into this year’s main event.
He has promised to send me regular updates about his experience that I will add to this post. Andre’ is in Day 1 – Group D; therefore his first day is Sunday July 10th, so stay tuned beginning around the 11th for updates.
Update #1 (July 10th) - Waiting to Play
From Andre’ early yesterday morning: “Just landed in Vegas and the adrenalin is really pumping! Plan to do a lot of running to settle the nerves before play on Sunday.”
Proof that Andre’ really is registered for the Main Event
I wonder if Andre’ knows that Pegasus was known as the symbol of wisdom, and especially fame,
from the Middle Ages until the Renaissance?
Is this an omen?
