hmm. The WSOP software platform is well known for being terrible. I struggle to think they could either handle the volume much less the entire series of events such as a $1500 big bet mix game. The software will get crushed and destroy the brand if they try to pull this off. Maybe a much smaller event slate and capped entry could help the effort. But the scale of this digitally they are ill prepared for esp on such out dated software.
