    World Series of Poker

    The 39th Annual World Series of Poker starts tomorrow at the Rio in Las Vegas.
    This year will include 55 bracelet events

    This will also be the first year where the final table for the Main Event won't take place until almost 4 months after the final table has been determined.

    The Main Event starts on July 3rd, there will be 4-Day 1's (to accommodate up to 12,000 entrants), they will play down to the final table on July 14th, but not resume with the final table until November 9.

    The thinking behind this move is to build up more interest in the final nine players and that final episode where they play for it all. Instead of knowing the winner months in advance of the episodes being shown on ESPN.

    Re: World Series of Poker

    I really like the idea. This way you have no idea who wins and it is all live at the end.


    43-54 Record in CF Mafia. The most games played and wins by any player in Cyclone Fanatic History. Yes, I'm a nerd.

    Re: World Series of Poker

    I think it is an interesting idea, but it kind of takes some of the "game" out of it. Instead of playing while tired at the end of a long run, everyone has time to rest and do research. Better for TV, but not better for the tournament.

    I think you can have private tables/tournaments on Full Tilt, but I'm not sure. Someone should look into that.
