This blog post is going to explain why and how i'm going to win a bracelet at this years WSOP.
When someone claims that they are going to win a bracelet at the WSOP, the first thought that may come to someone's mind is... "hahaha" "GL" "Gotta run good" "its a luckbox fest" "you can't plan to win a bracelet." Well yes it's true you need to get lucky at certain points in a tournament to ship one usually. Then again it is possible to run decent and play ridiculously well and still ship one. So why am I an exception from the other thousands of players that will be at this WSOP?
Well for one, I believe that I'm one of the best Stud players out there. This alone gives me a signifigant edge in any Stud field, which generally is going to be one of the smaller fields at the WSOP, thus giving me a great shot at a bracelet. The Stud/Stud 8 5k are my two best shots at a bracelet by far. I have a well rounded array of mixed game experience and will be playing around 15 events. The more events obviously the better shot at a bracelet. I have the experience. I've been in two WSOP so far and each one I've had a great showing. I have 6 cashes and 1 final table, and in each cash I had a shot at the bracelet (except the omaha 8 10k). I am preparing for the WSOP physically and mentally, exercising and studying each game seperately, always bettering my game. I feel like it's my time. This one I can't really explain logically as it's a feeling more than anything else, but I definitely feel that I've had my share of experiences in poker, and I could definitely see an upswing through the WSOP this year. I'm going to pressure myself to succeeed, and won't take failure as an option.
If this post rubs you the wrong way, and you think i'm over-confident or delusional, I definitely understand where you are coming from. But if you are going to achieve greatness in the poker world, you really can't just settle for anything less than what you believe to be the greatest potential in yourself. Just like in every other aspect of life, you really need to believe in yourself and push yourself to achieve exellence, so even though it may seem like I may seem taboo in claiming that I'm going to win a bracelet, I feel like I have to believe in myself that I can, otherwise who will?
