    2018 wsop

    The schedule's been out for awhile so I'm surprised no one has started a thread. I've tentatively booked Paris for 9 nights at an average of $135.50/night all in (including "resort fee"). The hotel is dependent on whether or not the little lady accompanies me this year. Usually she comes down for the first 3 or 4 days and then leaves me for the Senior Smorgasbord but she's not sure she wants to go this year. The reason (don't laugh) is because we'll be in Vegas for ten days in April to watch curling! We're both ex-curlers and big fans so we thought we'd take in the Men's Worlds in Vegas this year.

    Usually I rent a car but with all the parking charges now I'm planning to use Uber and Lyft to get around when walking doesn't work. Haven't booked flights yet (need to wait for the better half to make a decision) but that should happen soon. Same plan as in past years - play the senior tournaments at Wynn, Venetian and Aria. Probably play WSOP Senior (still don't care for the structure but having cashed in 2 of the last 3 years it's kind of hard not to play it). I might give some consideration to the Super Senior in future years (being over 60 now) but not this year.

    Anyone else heading down for Old Fogeys' Week?

    Uber/Lyft is the way to go. Last summer was the first trip in a very long time I didn't rent a car, and that's the route I'm most likely taking for the foreseeable future.

    I see the WSOP Senior structure has improved a bit this year. They've removed the antes from levels 3 & 4 so no antes until level 5. The Patience Factor has increased from 21.43 last year to 29.51 this year. Compared to other PF's for last year's tourneys it's much closer now to the V's Senior (34.70) and the Wynn's (36.70) and now much better than Aria's Senior last year (23.07).

    Lots of discussion on 2+2 about BB antes. Apparently a number of non-WSOP tournaments will be run utilizing this "new" concept. Anybody have any experience/views on this? I've never played a tournament with this structure so I'm interested in understanding the intricacies of playing with a BB ante. Does it change one's strategy at different points in a tournament? Any particular pluses/minuses vs. the normal ante structure?

    It makes the game so much smoother in general. As for strategy, it affects shorts stacks more than anything. your jamming range ep should be much wider since you will lose a big % of your short stack paying ante,bb, and sb in the next 2 hands.
