We’re into the second week of the World Series of Poker (WSOP) and the action has been fast and furious so far. Known pros are winning marquee bracelets, young online grinders are proving they are still a force to be reckoned with and there are still over thirty events to go before they get to the Main Event. For those interested in a British pro’s perspective of the Series, they can turn to poker player Ian Frazer’s blog on PartyPoker.com.
Ian “The Raiser” Frazer is a British poker professional based out of London who is in Las Vegas for the duration of the Series. He is best known for his extensive results in shootout style tournaments such as the Party Poker Premier League, The Party Poker European Open, Late Night Poker and the Full Tilt Poker Global Poker Challenge. Frazer’s biggest cash to date came in 2005 when he won the 888.com Pacific Poker Open for $500,000.
Frazer has been posting semi-regularly on the Party Poker Blog.  He talks about all of his Vegas experiences, including everything from his late night antics and partying with David “Devilfish” Ulliot to his adventures in the pit with Roland de Wolfe. He also provides tournament recaps of the events he played, including detailed analysis of how some of the key hands played out.
Frazer even offers analysis of his cash game plays as well. In his most recent blog, he details a session of $5-$10 Pot Limit Omaha game at the Venetian, going into details about both the hands that went his way and a big bluff that got picked off, but managed to catch up on the river in order to win him the pot.
Frazer has a grand total of five career WSOP cashes so far, including a 34th place finish in the Main Event in the inaugural WSOP Europe in 2007. He also has two cashes in short-handed events and one of his more recent blogs details his misadventures accidentally registering for a 6-Handed Limit Hold’em event believing it would be No Limit instead. Thankfully Frazer was able to unregister before the event, but he will have several opportunities in the future to take advantage of short-handed and shootout events as the Series moves forward.
