But by playing in the cash game, you can play in the 2007-20xx Main Events...

Sure. It was hypothetical, so I just figured the scenario was limited to this decision. Seems that the OP wanted to look at this as a not strictly EV scenario.

If it really is the worst players in the world and the game goes for 2 weeks straight, you would have to have some [censored] luck to not make 6 figures profit. If someone offered you a check for $100,000+ to not play in the tournament, would you refuse that?

I suppose not. It all depends on the potential profit of the game, so you guys are right, at six digits it's not close, but if my expected profit were closer to $25,000, I think I'd stick with the ME. Maybe I've misread it, but I thought OP was after the "experience" factor as well as the overlay, and for me at least, the experience factor is pretty high.

You could spice it up by saying your table at the WSOP would consist of 9 Aaron Kanter clones.

I go to the main event and play very, very LAG poker to see if I can build up a big stack. When I bust out, I go to the cash game.

Best of both worlds.

On teh day of the WSOP2006 Main Event, which you have a seat into you are invited into a HUGE cash games, 100/200 NL full of nothing but the juciest fish you've ever seen, if you can't afford the bankroll someone will stake you and let you keep the profits, the game will be going for hte full 2 weeks the WSOP is on.

Do you go to the main event?

[/ QUOTE ]

I don't know. It's a real tough decision. If I ever find myself in that situation, I'll ponder a decision.
