The World Series of Poker is quickly approaching. The tournament starts a month from now and satellites and qualifying tournaments are heating up. If you are participating in any of these qualifying tournaments and gearing up for the tournament of your life then you should start preparing for go time!
For starters, it’s important to understand that the WSOP is a highly competitive tournament with very good poker players. For this reason, it is important to be prepared. If you have practiced your skills with free poker games and low-limit games and worked your way up to higher limit games over time then you may be on par with the other WSOP players. However, if you have only played free poker games on the Web you may not stand a chance. However, if you have what it takes and manage to make your way to the WSOP on a satellite tournament you’ll have to get busy practicing.
Playing in deep stack tournaments is the best way to prepare for the World Series of Poker. WSOP players generally start out with a lot of chips so you have to get used to playing in that sort of environment. You’ll also want to gain experience playing the final table, in the event that you make it far in the WSOP. A great way to practice final table action is with sit & go tournaments on the web.
Practice makes perfect, and if you make it all the way to the WSOP you’ll be glad you are prepared!
