2010 World Series of Poker Day 1 - Employee's Event Kicks off 2010 WSOP

28 May 2010 , By: compncards
Event 1 400x300
A new chapter in poker history begins today. The first event of the 2010 World Series of Poker kicked off at Noon with the $500 Casino Employee’s Event. Jack Effel, Tournament Director for the World Series of Poker, kicked off the event with introductions and a couple of brief announcements. He then “attempted” to get the room to join him in the obligatory “Shuffle Up and Deal” call, but in reality it was just Jack that made the call.

The World Series of Poker Begins Tomorrow!

WSOP 400x300
The World Series of Poker is just ONE DAY AWAY!  Players from all over are already beginning to descend upon Vegas and beginning their pre-WSOP preparations.   The poker media is in town having their pre-WSOP meetings and Harrah’s has been in meetings for the last couple of days in preparation. What have I been doing?  Playing video poker and watching Doctor Who mostly.   While that may not be the most exciting preparation for the WSOP, we have a long six weeks ahead of us.

Tzvetkoff Taking a Beating for Poker

24 May 2010 , By: Charlie River
Australian internet tycoon Daniel Tzvetkoff has decided to plead not guilty of having transmitted funds to illegal online gamling. He’s taking the position that poker is not gambling, a truth that I’ve claimed in a previous blog post[[sitetree_link,id=904]]. While other gambling CEOs have chosen to bargain their way out of messy legal situations, Tzvetkoff’s decision to call down the DOJs aggressive play will force them to show their cards. Tzvetkoff is playing a high stakes game, to say the least.

I have some bad news to report. Unfortunately, the “Poker Junkie Monkey” will not be making its way to the 2010 World Series of Poker. For some reason, I was unable to locate the monkey before coming out here. As such, I now have a new mascot for the 2010 WSOP.
