I am very excited to be scheduled to play the World Series of Poker Circuit $1600 main event in Chester, PA.  Harrah's Chester is a new property from what I understand, and this WSOPC is their first series.  Chester is just outside of Philadelphia, so I expect the field to be pretty soft as there should be a ton of new poker blood in this field.  It's costing me quite a bit out of pocket to travel from Las Vegas (airfare + hotel + rental car), but I definitely think it will be worthwhile as most of the WSOPC $1600 main events have a large field as well as being soft.

For those of you that don't know who I am, my name is Rob Perelman, and I play almost exclusively live tournaments.  I brought home 1st place prize to ChipMeUp at the Heartland Poker Tour at the Red Rock Casino earlier this year for $159,755.  In total, I have cashed in 3 events out of the 8 I have posted here on ChipMeUp.  You can see my career cashes by viewing my profile on Hendon Mob.

I reserve the right to tip up to 2% on my winnings before I pay out my shares.  I typically tip 1%, but have tipped more when I feel the tournament staff deserves it.  If I have to fill out an IRS tax form from cashing in this tournament, I will be collecting tax information from my investors before paying out shares.  Further, I may pay out shares directly on Full Tilt or via check if I cannot cover the money with my online funds.  This is a good problem to have as it means we have won a bunch of money!

As always, I am happy to answer any questions you may have, so feel free to post on the event wall or PM me if there's something I have not covered.  Also, feel free to follow me on Twitter @veeRob to follow my progress through the tournament.  Thanks so much!

It is with much sadness that I am forced to cancel my ChipMeUp event for the WSOPC Chester Main Event that you had bought shares for. In case you’re unaware, CMU has decided to block all US players from buying shares or doing anything with their money, so I would have no way to access your funds once playing the event. (More details on this at

Fortunately, I am very willing to sell action for the event outside of ChipMeUp. If you live in Las Vegas, NV or Chester, PA, I can arrange to meet you to pick up cash.

I have bank accounts with CitiBank and Chase, and you can make a deposit into my bank account by going to any local branch. If you can do this, please message me and I can supply you with my account information.

Alternately, Chase has web site called QuickPay that will allow you to pay me from your bank account (any bank, not just Chase) sort of the way PayPal works. You can sign up for an account (it’s FREE!) at — once signed up, message me with your email address and the amount you would like to buy so I can send you a request for money.

Because of the extra steps needed to buy shares, I will be offering a discount to you guys. My CMU ad listed a 135% price/value ratio. Here is what I can offer you:

2%+ of me for $42 (131% price/value ratio)
5%+ of me for $100 (125% price/value ratio)

If you have ANY questions, please do not hesitate to ask me. I definitely feel bad for having to cancel the action. I hope you can understand, and we can figure out a way to work together.
