SAN JOSE, CALIFORNIA — The spring poker season is within full-swing as several major tournaments are underway.
Have you ever dreamed of playing poker expertly? Well, then pony-up your own entry fees since the 2011 poker period is happening and tournament circuits across America and also Europe want you to play.
“I’ve been playing poker now critically for about three years, I think I’m ready to make the jump to the professional level”, said Ken Stillwater, the tour-level rookie hoping to make his professional debut next month on the World Poker Trip Event in San Jose.
Like many other potential customers, Ken has been saving his money so he can afford the tour-level entry fees and also the going expenses.
“I spent the entire winter working on an offshore oil drill in the Gulf, saving my money, playing online poker just about every chance we got”, he added.
The buy-in is typically in the $10, 500 range and airfare/hotel/food/misc expenses can make the whole trip exceed $15, 500.
