Friday T-minus 3 days

I don't start until Monday, but I went to the Rio to see the first first day begin. It was crazy exciting. James Garner, who is playing in the event for the first time kicked it off.

I also got to see Wil Wheaton, who has been blogging the series for PokerStars. If you don't read his blog, you should.

And then there was this guy.

Joe Hachem, the current world champ is a class act. He was signing autographs for hours and never had anything but a smile and a nice word for the people who came to see him. Not bad for someone who won over $7 Million just one year ago.
