WSOP 2006

Welcome StratmanAlright, its that time of the year. The World Series of Poker kicks off Monday with the casino employee's NL event. It's followed by 37 other events leading up to the grand daddy of them all, the No-Limit Texas Hold'em World Championship. You can see a complete schedule of events here.

It's every poker player dream to win the big one. To get your picture up on the wall at Binions with the likes of Johnny Moss, Doyle Brunson, Stu Ungar and Johnny Chan all of whom have won the main event twice.

Maybe this is my year. You never know, if Chris Moneymaker can do it, you got to figure just about anybody with the buyin and a major run of luck can pull it off. Lord knows I'm due with the luck part. As you can see by the pictures, I've got my hotel reservations and my bags are packed. Keep an eye out for me I'll be the guy with the shit eating grin and the PokerChaos T-shirt.WSOP Buy In Well, not really. I'll be listening to the event podcasts just like you guys but its nice to dream once in awhile.

I know has been chosen by Harrah's Casino to be the official media source for the 2006 WSOP and they plan on providing the following coverage:
  • live hand-by-hand reporting from the floor
  • streaming video of player interviews, event recaps and behind the scenes action
  • real-time chip counts
Card Player will also be the official content provider for, the official World Series of Poker Internet site.

This years event will no doubt be the biggest to date and I for one, even tho I won't be there, am really looking forward to it.
