The World Series of Poker is less than three weeks away, and I'll be playing in a few events under the Team PokerStars flag.
Success in the WSOP, like success in any other sporting event, requires training, practice, and dedication. Over the next three weeks, I'll be spending some time each day reviewing the books I consider essential to tournament poker success, and testing out my large-field tournament strategy at Poker Stars.
For the rest of this month, I'll keep a blog of whatever insights I pick up as I study Harrington on Hold'Em I and II, Tournament Poker For Advanced Players, Phil Gordon's Little Green Book of Poker, and whatever else I come across in my travels. I'll track my experiences playing tourneys at Poker Stars as I "train" for the big dance, and share any insights I pick up (without revealing too many gaping leaks in my game . . . CJ doesn't need any more help taking all my chips, thank you very much.)
I owe a great deal of my tournament success over the last year to my fellow poker bloggers, who have unselfishly shared their wisdom with me, and I hope to give back to the community a little bit in my own way as I walk this path of knowledge from now until the WSOP begins. This should be an interesting and fun experience, and I hope we can all learn some things together over the next few weeks.
