Taking Care of Jace and Setting WSOP Schedule

Many people in poker understand the feeling of wanting to lay low before the World Series of Poker. For nearly two months, we’re playing tournaments, being social, lacking sleep, and keeping our schedules full no matter how hard we try to do otherwise. So my sparse updates on this blog lately are mostly because I’m trying to take some time for myself and relax in Las Vegas before the WSOP starts.

The other thing taking up much of my time is by beloved new cat Jace. You’ll remember that I adopted him earlier this month from the Nevada SPCA. He’s already been such a blessing in my life, such an amazing companion with so much love to give! I even noticed recently that the brown markings on either side of his body are each in the shape of a heart. Look at the pictures! My friends are shocked that the markings are so obvious, and it only serves as one more sign that we found each other at the right time in our lives. He’s just the most loving little boy.

Jace is not in the best health, though. He’s over two years old and he’s been living in a shelter, so it’s not surprising that he has health issues, but the vet we’ve been going to hasn’t been able to help. Jace was diagnosed with an upper respiratory infection/virus, ear mites, and most recently an eye infection that the vet says is a result of the infection spreading. The ear mites have been taken care of, but the infection isn’t going away despite the antibiotics, eye drops, and steroid shot to help clear his breathing.

Yesterday, I finally got fed up from seeing my boy suffering so much, and I took him to a veterinary hospital that specializes in cats. He was admitted to the hospital overnight so they could properly monitor him and diagnose the problem. Waiting to hear back is very hard! And going home without him was sad, though I know he’s getting amazing care and I look forward to bringing him back home soon. He’s very happy here with the big windows and so many fluffy places to lounge around. 🙂

In other news, I’ve decided on my WSOP schedule! I looked over the schedule and picked my events. It looks like I’m setting myself up for some long grinds, but I’m mentally and physically ready to bust my ass and do well this year! Here’s a look at the events I plan to play:

Event 3 – $1,000 NLHE
Event 5 – $1,500 NLHE
Event 8 – $1,500 NLHE
Event 9 – $1,500 PLHE
Event 11 – $1,500 NLHE
Event 17 – $5,000 NLHE
Event 18 – $2,000 LHE
Event 23 – $2,500 LHE Short-handed
Event 26 – $2,500 NLHE Short-handed
Event 29 – $10,000 LHE World Championship
Event 32 – $5,000 NLHE Short-handed
Event 35 – $10,000 NLHE Heads-Up World Championship
Event 36 – $1,000 NLHE
Event 38 – $10,000 PLHE World Championship
Event 39 – $1,500 NLHE Shootout
Event 42 – $1,500 NLHE
Event 44 – $2,500 Mixed HE
Event 47 – $1,000 NLHE
Event 49 – $1,500 NLHE
Event 53 – $1,500 NLHE Shootout
Event 54 – $1,000 NLHE
Event 56 – $2,500 NLHE
Main Event – $10,000 NLHE

That was exhausting just making the list! Yes, there are 23 events there, though the list may be shortened or changed when I make Day 2s and final tables of some events, preventing me from playing others. 😉

The WSOP is just a few days away, and I hope to see a lot of friends at the Rio this summer!

Cheers!
