Just got my confirmation e-mail from Harrah's. The main event begins for me on Sunday, July 30. When I registered with Pokerstars this was my first choice for starting day because it gives me a couple days to get comfortable in Vegas (I arrive on the 27th), but if I had to wait for the very last day the anticipation would probably get to be too much. Also, it seems so soon but the WSOP starts next week. Best of luck to everyone heading down for the preliminary events.
