FUN

Vlogger extraordinaire Andre Neeme has become one of the best content generators in the poker realm. The Vegas-based cash game pro posted a video before the WSOP began. Since we're a couple of weeks in, this is a good time for a refresher course. Or if you're headed to the WSOP for the first time this summer, then you need to listen/watch to this great vlog about WSOP tips and the "Do's" and "Dont's" of the summer.

Sometimes you need advice, especially when it comes to Las Vegas and the World Series of Poker. The summer in Sin City is anchored by seven weeks of the WSOP at the Rio Casino, but entire city gets a little poker centric for the WSOP festivities as players from all over the globe flock to Vegas for a shot at glory and a little bling. With tons of poker action all over town including downtown, there's plenty of opportunity to make some money, along with having a fantastic poker vacation. You do not necessarily have to be at the WSOP to make money and have fun, but all roads lead to the Rio!

There's definitely no perfect way to do Vegas… it's really up to you. Same goes for the WSOP. It's really up to you to carve out your own WSOP experience. Does it entail cash games, or donkaments, or both? Or is it strictly business and you're there for the Benajamins? Regardless of your motivation, there's plenty of pitfalls you need to avoid… no matter if you're a pro or a noob. And there's plenty of local's knowledge that will help make your visit to Vegas and the WSOP a memorable one. Luckily, Andrew Neeme has been taking notes. Good ones.

Andrew Neeme has been grinding it out in Vegas for almost a decade as a cash-game pro. He's been sharing advice on his YouTube channel and he posted a video that you do not want to miss if you will be in Vegas this summer.

Andrew Neeme broke down his advice into two distinct groups: grinders and fun seekers. It's safe to say that the grinders are “pros” and the fun seekers are semi-pros and amateurs. No matter what group you are in, his advice is outstanding.

WSOP DO'S AND DONT'S

FOR THE GRINDERS

  • 1. Work hard.
  • 2. Do not burnout.
  • 3. Do have a tentative plan for games and tournaments.
  • 4. Do move around.
  • 5. Do not go broke trying to get rich quick.

FOR THE FUN SEEKERS

  • 1. Visit the Rio for all things WSOP and don't get holed up in the poker room of your hotel.
  • 2. Do not be results oriented.
  • 3. Say hello to your favorite TV pro.
  • 4. Take some time and check out Vegas, especially restaurants.
  • 5. Remember to have fun!
