Getting back on my feet I decided to start traveling again and as I have done the past 5 years I head out to go play the World Series of Poker circuit events around the country. I currently hold the record for most cashes without a ring. 50 cashes and 20 final tables and yet no victories. I would like to change that this season. I have also qualified for the WSOPc Global Casino Championships twice and would like to be in the top 50 point earners again to get a $1,000,000 freeroll with coverage on ESPN. I set out on my quests to find that elusive ring starting with poker trips to Harveys in Lake Tahoe and Choctaw in Durant Oklahoma. Tournament poker travels that most Vlogges don't do. Lets see if I can have fun and bring home a ring.
