Las Vegas Summer Schedules: 2018

You’ve probably already been planning your trips to Las Vegas for the summer, but if you haven’t it’s time to get your butt in gear because the 2018 World Series of Poker is less than 40 days away, and it’s less than a month to the start of the Venetian Deepstack Extravaganza III. Just a reminder about one of the best tools out there.

Kenny Hallaert’s 2018 spreadsheet

Belgian WSOP Main Event November Niner and tournament director Kenny Hallaert has been producing a version of this spreadsheet for years. It includes all of the major series: WSOP, Venetian, Planet Hollywood, Aria, Wynn, Bellagio, Golden Nugget, and Binoins. Events are organized by day (starting with 14 May and running through 29 July). There are tabs for non-NLHE tournaments and breakdowns for rake.

Wildhorse Spring Poker Round Up Full Results

Liz Tedder was in a 3-way chop at the Wildhorse Spring Poker Round Up Main Event, then heads-up for $1K and the bracelet just a few days after sending us this picture!

I was going to write a whiny post about how I blew it in the High Roller calling off my stack on a river where I knew my flopped set of aces had been beat (hence the great shot from Liz Tedder of the Bad Beat Wheel of Misfortune™ that I got to spin—hitting the hand sanitizer just to rub things in) but long-time friend of the blog Brad Press pointed out—contrary to what I’d seen earlier in the week—the results from the series were being posted on the Wildhorse web site. (Brad’s a perceptive guy, he was actually the very first person to approach me at a tournament about the blog).

Anyway, just for convenience, I’m reposting results here. Events 1—8 are up, with the exception of the #7, the Big O, which are linked to #8 at the time I’m writing this.

For the uninitiated, at Wildhorse, you get to spin the Wheel of Misfortune when your aces or kings are cracked in a tournament—even if you aren’t knocked out. Most of the prizes are tokens—the wheel’s running every few minutes during the larger tournaments—but you can win a Pendleton blanket or so I’ve heard.
