PITTSBURGH -- We're leaving on Thursday for this year's WSOP lunacy in Las Vegas. What's new? The Colossus, with a $565 buy-in (as opposed to the Main Event's $10,000 buy-in) and a guaranteed prize pool of at least $5 million. Records will be set, but it's hard to know exactly which ones.
The most entrants ever in a live poker event? Predictions are of more than 20,000 players over the four Day 1 starts, so that's possible.
The most toilet flushes in a 2-day span? Potentially the most people (men) ever using the parking lot as a port-a-potty because a whole fleet of port-a-potties won't be enough.
I'll be posting photos (but probably not from the parking lot). Stay tuned.
