Jim “Pocket Bullets” Paris
Last year at this time we were making our own side bets as to who would make it into the 48th Annual World Series of Poker Main Event, who would eventually make it to the Final 9, and ultimately who would end up taking it down, walk away with the much coveted title of Poker Champion, take the Championship Bracelet, and the millions of dollars.
It ended up being Scott Blumstein who took it all home and stuffed $8.15 million into his bank account. In 2016 Qui Nguyen took the title and $8, 005, 310, and in 2015 Joe McKeehen took it all down and walked with $7.68 million, but who will be in it and who will take the 49th WSOP Main Event glory and riches home this year? It is still too early to know.
As we have already reported, the 49th Annual WSOP is scheduled to start on May 29th for registration and the first event will begin on May30th. The Main Event will begin July 2nd and it’s expected to reach the Final Table by July 12th.
For those of you who want or hope to enter any of this year’s events here is a link to the complete list of the 2018 49th Annual World Series of Poker Schedule. Do you have any favorites for this year? Will you be heading to the Rio Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas this year? If so, we hope to see you there.
