Where Has The Time Gone?

I can't believe it is almost September already, it feels like I just got home from Vegas and playing in The World Series Of Poker Main Event. Even though I have travelled to Vegas every summer since 2007 for The WSOP, this year was my first time that I played in the $10k No Limit Hold em Main Event.

This summer was definitely an exciting one, and one that I will remember for a life time. Orangeville Poker Tour (OPT) Members had a good run in Vegas cashing several times, with Kirk "Pudge" Caldwell most notably bringing home WSOP Gold and $668k. I was lucky enough to witness this and be there for his incredible run that I will never forget.

With September right around the corner this brings us to OPT's Season 6 starting and it looks like it will be a popular one. We have opened each event up to 40 players and each of the 12 events has a waiting list, and once October rolls around OPT will be starting their 2012 WSOP Satellites. This is how Kirk "Pudge" Caldwell won his way to Vegas and went on to win Event 32. The Satellites also have been opened up to 40 players and the first 3 also have a waiting list, so it looks like this Season at OPT is going to be an exciting one.
