I was in vegas this week and my wife and daughter have been in california all week. It was by far my best opportunity to play focused poker since ivy was born, and I am not likely to see such an opportunity again. Despite that I didn't play in the bellagio WPT event that began monday, the same WPT event I won two years ago. I see that andy bloch is not playing any more WPT events and I feel roughly the same way although our complaints might diverge a bit. I do not expect to have any impact but the players have been reasonable for long enough and eventually something has to give. I'll leave myself an out to play in the $25K final in april, but barring some significant changes that will be my final WPT event.
