I’m going to try something for the next few weeks. Binions Hotel Casino is currently running their Binions Poker Open Tournaments. The Binions Classic is a series of poker tournaments for the poker players playing on a small budget. The average buy ins are $150-$200, with a couple of $500 and $1,000 buy ins. The tournaments have outstanding structures and attract a lot of players, it’s well run. So In honor of the Binions Poker Open, I’m going to play online tournaments to coincide with Binion’s tournaments…The Buy in for the online tournaments will be on par with Binions. For Example, the 1st event is a $90 No Limit tournament, so I’ll probably play a $2 or $3 online tournament. I’ll be playing mainly on Pokerstars, but I may squeeze a few FullTilt Tournaments.
I won’t have a set time of when I’ll play these tournaments, only that I’ll be entering them in the same order of The Binions Poker Open, but from time to time I’ll know exactly when I’ll play and I’ll be sure to post it on the bulletin board just in case you want to sweat me.
I’m doing this experiment for 2 reasons: 1) to gauge my poker tournaments skills. I really haven’t been playing too many tournaments. This is a way to get into the mode with little risk, and 2) Just for the hell of it…and to have fun..
My future blog entries, I’ll give you a daily progress…and you’ll see just how well, (or how bad), I’m doing….I hope I’ll have a good run and learn something along the way.
