Amir Lehavot - Weston
Amir Lehavot, 38, became one of nine surviving players who'll vie for a $8.3 million top prize when the tournament resumes on Nov. 4 at the Rio All-Suites Hotel in Las Vegas. He sits in second place, behind JC Tran of Sacramento. (Jayne Furman / Jayne Furman /July 14, 2013)
So at 2 p.m. Thursday my dream of winning the $10 million tournament at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino begins.
No, I didn't sit down for a satellite (yet). I'm entering via Twitter.
The card room posted that those who follow @SHRThePokerRoom can play in a free-roll at 2 p.m. Aug. 1. The winner gets a $5,300 seat to their $10 million tournament Aug. 22-29.
I think the field is at about 220, and I don't see that many intimidating names, other than our own Mike Mayo, esteemed columnist.
I'll be Tweeting updates via @NickSortal
