Guess I'll have to drive to Reno to hang for a few days poolside and play a couple tourneys. Fingers crossed they'll still have some live events this fall...

But I agree #godmode with ME online doesn’t seem prudent.

I think the guy who wrote this is a knob. He says this: " The WSOP.com schedule, as it has been in the past, is made up of Omaha and hold'em events. The GGPoker schedule, while yet to be released, figures to be the same as the client only supports no-limit hold'em, pot-limit Omaha, and short deck. "
Maybe he's smart and I'm the knob, but I can't imagine why WSOP would partner with GG (AND schedule more events on GG than on their own site) if not to get a variety of games. GG represents itself as a software first, dynamic platform that brings players what they want. I predict there will be mixed games. At least I certainly hops so. If they give away 85 bracelets in only HE, Omaha and short deck, that would be STU PID

Over/under on getting online poker (temporarily?) legalized in 50 states before August? haha. Seems ridiculous that a poker series that caters to a lot of recreational American players is going to switch its entire demographic to target international professional players, but hey, I guess it's better than nothing.

This isn't huge for the Vegas economy but it has to help vegas hotels.
I mean, some people will go to vegas for a while to play these tournaments, right?
I thought about a road trip to NJ.

I’m the knob. It’s confirmed. 85 online tournaments, 85 bracelets, 3 different games - No Limit Holdem, Pot Limit Omaha, short deck Holdem.
That is dumb.
