“Just What the Doctor Ordered”

131It’s hard to believe it was less than a week ago that a relatively unknown Australian named Joseph Hachem took the 7.5 million dollar prize in the 2005 World Series of Poker. It was an amazing thing seeing a virtual, and actual, Average Joe outlasting a field of more than 5,600 players.

It was also a painful thing, watching from the rails, not being one of those 5,600 competing for top honors in the game we play each and every day. In fact, it almost made us ill.

Well, in Tunica this August, we have just what the doctor ordered as Harrah's has announced the schedule for the 2005/2006 WSOP circuit tournament schedule and it all gets underway at the Grand Casino Tunica from August 10 through August 25.

So, if you're already tired of watching the WSOP on ESPN or any other poker on TV; if you want to stop watching or reading about someone else winning tons of cash playing poker; or if you’re getting bored of grinding the tables online, it’s time to get off your arse, put on your pants, set aside a few bills and meet us in Tunica next month and be part of the 2005/2006 World Series of Poker.

Tunica is a great poker town. Indeed, poker’s really the only thing worth doing there, unless of course the Hawaiian Tropic Pageant is in town, which was the case the last time we stayed at the Grand Casino Tunica (hence the obligatory pic). It was rather impressive, like a Bodog in Bikinis Convention, with a bit of a stripper-look slant (but in the $30 cover charge range). And while it doesn’t look it will be going on this August during the Circuit event, you do have Ted “Wildman” Nugent in town as a distraction on August 20. He’ll surely be slinging out hits like “Motor City Madhouse,” “Cat Scratch Fever,” and yes, the apropos “Just What the Doctor Ordered.”
