My other dream12 Apr 2006
Even startup owners need a hobby, and mine's poker. I've been playing cards since I was a little kid, and started to get into poker seriously a few years ago.
Therefore, I'm overjoyed to realize my other dream, and that's to be able to play in the World Series of Poker main event this year. For those that don't know, the WSOP main event is by far the top event in the poker world each year.
I won my seat + expenses online by winning a cheap satellite tournament on PokerStars. It was a thrilling night to say the least.
The main event is getting capped at 8800 entrants, which would make it the largest live poker tournament ever. I'm not holding my breath to cash in the event, but I'm definitely going to do my best. I'm mostly excited about the experience of it, and the chance to take the family on an inexpensive vacation even during these bootstrapping times. Winning the estimated $10M top prize would be nice too though. :)
