World Series of Poker
“A Waterloo,” by Cassius Marcellus Coolidge.

If you’ve been itching to participate in the World Series of Poker since amateur player Chris Moneymaker won the Main Event on ESPN in 2003 and got everyone age 18-34 talking about No-Limit Texas Hold ’em (which as far as I can tell is the only poker game with an entry in The Associated Press Stylebook), you’re out of excuses. A World Series of Poker Circuit is coming to Baltimore on Thursday.

Well, money is still a pretty good excuse. Compared to the $10,000 buy-in at the main event at the WSOP in Las Vegas, the $365 to $1,675 buy-ins for this series of tournaments is small potatoes, but, I don’t know. I don’t think I could justify it to my family, exactly. Maybe if I explain that the prize pool is at least $250,000 and I could win a gold ring?

Anyway, if you’ve got the dough, it’s a pretty neat way to do the whole WSOP thing, and if you’ve got the skills, you can use it qualify for the National Championship in May.
