This isn't set in stone obviously, as I'll gauge my fatigue level throughout the series as well as likely make day two on several of those events. All told, the maximum number of events I will play is 33, but more realistically, it'll probably end up being closer to 20.

During my off days and free days I'll be working out and golfing, trying to get into the best physical shape I can for the stretch run. I won the player of the year in 2004 at the WSOP, but still felt like I could have done much better if I was in better shape. May is an important month for me to get a routine going and that is why I'm skipping out on the May tournaments to prepare.

I've done more than enough traveling already this year and need a solid month at home to get in shape for the WSOP. No bracelet bets at the moment, but as usual, I'd be willing to take 5-1 odds on winning a bracelet in 08.

Anyway, flight is about to board....
