World Series vs. WSOP

By: Daniel Smith

The Major League Baseball season has often been described as a grind.  A season of 162 games is enough to wear not only physically, but also mentally on any team and any player on a team.  Another game is very similar to baseball in certain aspects, and that is poker.

First, the game of poker is very much considered to be a grind.  Poker players must play hand after hand and sometimes fold hand after hand for what sometimes equates to hours before end before being able to make a big play.  This is similar to a baseball game where both teams are unable to get anything going and then one squad suddenly breaks loose for  a big inning.
