What do the World Series of Poker, commercial real estate, and technology have in common? Me. I'm taking the week off to play in the Main Event of the WSOP. I've made it through to Day Two, which starts in just a few hours. If you want to follow my progress throughout the day, follow @PerlPoker on Twitter.
Playing in the WSOP is a way for me to challenge myself by competing against the best players in the world. With QuantumListing, the mission is to create a better, easier and more cost-effective commercial real estate listing platform, with great tools and social features. We're also competing with a market leader with a 20 year head start, but we've taken a fresh approach.
This is the fifth time I've played the Main Event. I have not yet made it past Day 3. I hope this is my year. Going into today's play with 78,500 chips I've got an above average chip stack so I'm in a better position than I have been in the past. As for QuantumListing, we have over a thousand users and two thousand listings. We're in the best position we've been heading into our one year anniversary next month.
I hope I can count on your support. While I'm playing, I keep my phone on airplane mode so I can play with few distractions. I do check the phone at breaks, and it would be great to get the pings about new users trying a free one year Premium Membership when I turn it back on. You can click HERE to register if you have not done so yet. Seeing those emails gives me a little shot of confidence every time I get one, and that sure helps with my poker game!
Thanks for your support,
***UPDATE*** I made it to about 3 hours in on Day 3 of the Main Event. That's the best I've ever done in this marathon tournament. I'd be lying if I said I was not disappointed, but generally was happy with the way I played.
