The 43rd Annual World Series of Poker got underway on Sunday, May 27, 2012 with the Casino Employees No Limit Hold’em tournament.
The first No Limit Hold’em tournament (for all poker players) started Monday and will continue through Wednesday. I’m looking forward to the live stream of the final table sometime on Wednesday… I’ll post a link as soon as I know.
The remainder of this week goes like this.
