MSOP and one to keep your eye on

Tonight sees Full Tilt’s Mini Series of Poker get under way with a $5.50 NLHE tournament and a guranteed prize pool of $40,000 — although it’ll almost certainly surpass that by the time registration closes. For those that don’t know, the MSOP mirrors poker’s marquee event: the World Series of Poker. But while you’ll need at least $1,000 to enter the cheapest WSOP event (unless you work for one of the Vegas casinos, in which case you’re eligible to play in a special $500 tournament to kick the series off), Full Tilt’s online version offers the same tournaments at 1/100th of the cost.

There’ll be 57 events in all and I plan to play a bunch of them. I’m not really good enough at any of the non-NLHE poker disciplines so that discounts about half of the events and I’m going to be away for some of the others but I’ve still earmarked 22 events that I’d like to play, starting tonight. I’m feeling good about my tournament game at the moment so fingers crossed for a decent score over the next month or so.

In other poker news, friend of trendthrift Poker Poet is back on the horse and blogging his latest assault on the tables. Highly recommended.
